5111, 209, 4.72

Notes: Native of Baton Rouge, LA. Played in 9 games as a freshman on special teams and spot duty at running back (rushed 12-65) in 2015. Played in 12 games, mostly on special teams (7 tackles), and rushed 15-145, in 2016. Played in 13 games, rushed 19-96, in 2017. Started all 13 games, rushed 240-1,039-14 (4.3 avg.) and caught 14-78 in 2018.

Positives: Well-built. Effective between-the-tackles runner with good pick and body lean. Hits the hole with authority. Above average burst. Breaks tackles, especially up high. Doesn't waste motion. Always looking to head directly upfield. Keeps it vertical. Fights for yards and moves the pile at times. Good hands as a receiver. Capable blocker. Protects the ball nicely.

Negatives: Does not have truly magical qualities as a runner. Less effective when forced laterally. Gets tripped up low too easily at times. Not a true breakaway threat and gets caught from behind. Limited involvement in the passing game.

Summary: Could make it as a practice squad guy or backup.
