Scouting Report
Assets: Brings an above-average mix of size, explosiveness, and patience as a ball-carrier. Calm waiting for holes to open then bursts through them with deceptive wheels. Hard to bring down thanks to excellent power and good all-round size. Has the instincts to return some kicks.
Flaws: Needs to show he can receive, block, and hang onto the ball enough to play regularly (as he has fairly small hands for a guy his size). Runs a bit upright at times, which may lead to durability and ball security issues. While quick and explosive, he doesn't have top-end long speed.
Career Potential: Patient, bruising rusher with intriguing upside.
