Scouting Report
Assets: Had incredible lower-body strength and could drag tacklers or make them bounce off him. Also had excellent short-area quickness and agility. Could stop on a dime and change directions. Fought hard to find his way into the end zone. Was a very good receiver, as well.
Flaws: Didn't have great size for the running back position. Wore down at times. Ball security was also sometimes an issue. Was not the greatest blocking back, as he could get out-muscled while protecting the pocket. Age caught up to him at the end of his career.
Career Potential: Pro Bowl multi-purpose running back.
