Scouting Report
A gifted multi-purpose player: downright explosive as a running back, return man, and receiver. Has supreme quickness and elite change-of-direction skills, and easily evades tackles. Fast, and pretty patient in general (helping him pile up chunk yards). Shows good ability to punch it in at the goal-line too. Somewhat lacking in muscular bulk and power for the pro backfield. Really lacks the strength needed to compete as a pro running back. Might need to specialize more as a pro to get the most from his great talent.
Long Range Potential: Do-it-all tailback / return man / receiver, with star tools.
