Scouting Report
Assets: A big-play threat on every touch. Exceptional pure running skills. Gets to full speed quickly and can plow through tackles. Great vision and cutback ability. Very patient. Decent hands.
Flaws: Takes lots of hits and pounding, leading to frequent injuries (though he plays through them). A poor pass blocker and mediocre route runner. Ball security is his biggest drawback. Off-field issues now dog him.
Career Potential: Great veteran running back with issues.
