Notes: From Richmond, KY. Backup to Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry as a freshman in 2015, rushing 46-157-1 and caught 4-13. Became primary tailback in 2016, team-leading rusher with 146-1,037-2 and caught 14-99-2. Tide’s top rusher again with 135-1,000-11; also caught 12-91 in 2017. Was NFL-ready to enter draft in 2018, but opted to return for senior campaign.

Positives: Runs hard and plays with passion. Decisive. Little wasted movement or dancing, runs with authority and has a nose for the endzone. Precise, one-cut runner. Almost always makes the first man miss. Smart, patient runner with excellent vision and burst to daylight. Quick feet. Changes directions nicely and can make something out of nothing. Frequently gets what’s there and a bit more. Field fast and makes a lot of long runs. Excellent balance and determination. Fights for yardage. Consistently breaks arm tackles. Effective receiver out of the backfield. Very comfortable in the passing game. Can pick up the blitz. Protects the ball.

Negatives: Lacks great size or true home run speed. Gets caught from behind at times.

Summary:Pro ready, immediate starter who can be “the guy” or a terrific part of a two-back rotation and every-down running back and fit for any system.
