Bradford, Allen Southern Cal 5107 242 4.53
Two-year starter. Rotated with two other backs. A powerful back with good lower body strength. Downhill runner who is strong and fast. Explosive when he gets his hands on the ball. Can jump cut and burst through the hole. Lowers his shoulder and spins out of a tackle. Good vision and cutting ability. Uses a stiff arm to ward off tacklers. Runs with his chin over his toes. Good pad level. BYOB – he takes “be your own blocker” to heart. Strong runner between the tackles. Good contact balance. Patient on the outside zone and lets the blocks set up. A big back with lower body strength that will explode on contact. Athletic enough to reverse his field and make positive yards. No hesitation out of his stance. Plays with energy. Can shake a defender in the open field. Recruited as a linebacker or strong safety. Racked up 692 yards rushing in 2009 with 8 TDs, averaging 5.8 ypc.
