Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Profiles as a complete and potential every down running back

  • At times shows excellent vision; lots of cutback runs and bounce-out runs

  • Very physical runner that is tough to bring down; typically a finisher that gets his pad level down very well

  • PLUS contact balance and will break a fair amount of tackles; excellent 52 missed tackles forced on 214 carries in 2021

  • Above average to PLUS top-end film speed and at times looks as though he could be a home-run hitter; 4.46 (82nd PCTL) 40ty at the combine

  • Flashes PLUS burst when he turns it on with a quick start/stop and good jump cut quick start

  • Show some upside as a receiving back with 21 receptions on 22 targets and no career drops; appears to have soft & natural hands

  • Very good ball security with only 2 fumbles on 214 carries in 2021

  • Indecisive at times leading to a lot of muddy runs; shows very average and inconsistent patience

  • Not the most elusive in open space and does not have a vast array of moves; offers little more than making the 1st guy miss

  • Surprisingly not as good in past protection as you would expect and often times loses his technique, not a liability but merely average

  • Didn’t get the high draft capital that was expected as he went (5; 156) to Cleveland

  • ABSOLUTELY crushed by this landing spot in Cleveland; will take an injury for him to see the field and likely to fall victim to wasted talent
