Strengths
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
  • Compact build with a thick upper body and leg strength. Runs hard and with balance, is a patient runner who makes subtle, energetic cuts to make up for his modest explosiveness.
  • Flashes initial burst and good lateral quickness to sidestep defenders or bounce runs outside with very good foot quickness. Displays very good feel as an inside and outside runner with above average vision to make sharp cuts - good patience¬∑ and footwork to pick through defenses.
  • Possesses quick feet and straight-line speed but doesn't have the elite burst to be a constant big-play threat. Improving patience as a runner, following pulling guards and makes good decisions on his cut.
  • Doesn't possess elite breakaway speed, but is fast enough to gain yardage in chunks when he finds a seam.
Weaknesses
  • Goes down too easily upon contact and needs to do a better job staying on his feet and anticipating hits. Needs to be more of a finisher and run with more purpose and determination.
  • Does not always read blocks behind pulling guards. May not be big enough to move piles at the next level and has a tendency to bury his head too soon.
  • Not the most instinctive runner and too often tries for the big play, dancing and losing yards. Lacks the natural power to push the pile and feels more comfortable avoiding contact.
  • Not elite in his vision or strength, he has enough all-around game to be a three-down player at the next level
  • Too indecisive and hesitant at the line of scrimmage.
