Mario Fannin, 2011 Undrafted Free Agent, Running Back

Fannin, Mario Auburn 5103 231 4.37
Started 16 games in career. A north/south runner who can make
the hop cut in the hole. Good vision. Catches the ball in his
hands. All-time Auburn leader in receptions (97) and receiving
yards (985) by a running back. Strong lower body. Ran a 4.37/40
at the Combine. Yet in games, it didn’t look like he had any
finish speed. Was a role player in 2010 at Auburn, rotating with
freshman sensation Michael Dyer. Fannin is a power runner who
can break tackles with his lower body. Runs hard and with good
effort. Gets the corner by option and runs the power sweep in the
run-oriented spread offense. Best fit may be a downhill I-formation
zone blocking scheme. Outstanding athletic ability. Will contribute
on special teams. Has experience on kickoff returns.
