Low center of gravity. Good vision to make defenders miss. Shifty and elusive. Runs well in traffic. Agile. Makes you miss in the open field. Good cutting ability in tight quarters. Thick thighs and butt. Power in his legs. Weaves in and out of traffic effectively. Has a burst to turn the corner. A short stepper. Catches the ball in his hands on screens and swing passes. Third-down back and kick returner. Lack of height will keep him in the third or fourth round range. Good adjust to the ball. Quick upfield burst. Intelligent runner. Runs with his pads low. Can get run over as a blocker, but will give effort. Fumbles at times, possibly because of short arms and small hands. Productive. Third or fourth round. (A-28 1/8, H-8 1/4, SS-4.41, BP-18).
