Positives: Powerful, punishing between-the-tackles runner. Puts his shoulder down and delivers the blow to defenders. Downhill runner who is a load to tackle one-on-one. Good vision and balance. Has some quickness and weave in the open field. Usually makes the first man miss once upfield. Makes yards after contact. Shows decent hands.

Negatives: A bit tight-bodied and stiff. Not exceptionally nifty. Lacks outstanding natural size or speed. Average lateral quickness and elusiveness. Not used much in the passing game. Limited exposure as a receiver.

Summary: Capable rotational back. Lacks truly special qualities as a runner, but is very tough, strong, dependable and durable.
