The Goods:

School: Oklahoma Position: RB Class: Sophomore Height: 6-1 Weight: 225 lbs Projected Draft Round: 2-5

Quick Quote:

“Possesses terrific initial quickness and lateral agility for a player of his size, eluding defenders in close quarters with side-steps and jump-cuts and zipping through holes with instant acceleration and the speed to score from any point on the field.” –Rob Rang

Scouting Report:

Explosive, elite athlete with excellent agility and burst to get away from defenders.  Strong with a solid frame, not easily taken down by defenders that are not squared up.  Solid in the passing game and can catch balls smoothly without slowing down. Very prominent red flags that will make teams have to consider the pros and cons of drafting him high. Interviews and research into how he has handled himself since his problems will be very important to where he gets drafted.
