Positives: Quick, instinctive, shifty runner with excellent vision and cutting ability. Very quick feet. Natural weave and knack for finding daylight. Very good patience and anticipation, but runs hard and is very decisive. Fine balance and determination. Slips tackles and doesn’t go down without a fight. Moves the pile at times. Above-average speed. Reliable, sure-handed pass receiver with good understanding in the passing game. Very effective on screens. Steps up on pass protection. Tough and hard-nosed. Good character and leader.

Negatives: A little stiff and lacks any truly elite characteristic. Modest flexibility. Is not a true home run threat. Can use some refinement on pass protection.

Summary: Not super flashy but very productive as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Reminds me a lot of C.J. Anderson coming out. Will be very effective in a zone running scheme.
