Scouting Report
An old-school bell cow, he can put an offense on his back and muscle the ball downfield. Keeps his legs churning and powers between the tackles; is a hard, physical inside runner who can absorb punishment and dish it out. Is balanced with a low center of gravity and a thick, compact build. Possesses average speed but displays a good first move at the line; he is disciplined in following blocks and using lanes. Is also a reliable blocker/receiver in the passing game. Lacks the wiggle and quickness to bounce outside; he is unlikely to improvise or break for chunk plays. Must prove he can handle being a true No. 1 back.
Long Range Potential: Solid, durable running back with upside.
