Scouting Report
'The Human Joystick' is explosively elusive with the ball in his hands. He's a constant big-play threat out of the backfield, thanks to an amazing ability to cut laterally combined with above-average speed and superb quickness. He also shows good patience and excellent vision, plus very good receiving skills (thanks in part to his big hands). His major lack of ideal size for an NFL running back limits his 3-down potential, and he's not an ideal fit for a power / inside running scheme. Ball security issues need to be addressed, and he sometimes tries to do too much (resulting in mistakes and lost yards).
Long Range Potential: Super-elusive, big play receiving tailback and promising return man.
