Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Above average to PLUS vision with above-average patience

  • PLUS ability at making the correct read and uses his blocks well

  • Absolutely not afraid to SMASH you and routinely finishes every run; excels at yards after contract

  • Makes a lot of primary tackles miss and boasts good to PLUS contact balance; exceptional number of miss tackled forced with 58 in 2021

  • Definitely quicker than fast although he does not really show great explosion out of cuts does have a good start/stop

  • Make-you-miss waiting to happen and can flash special elusiveness at times; very nasty stiff arm

  • Shows some definite upside as a receiver and can run routes out of the back field as good as anyone in the class; likely fitted for a very solid 3rd down RB

  • Excellent production as a receiver with 42 receptions on 45 targets and only 1 drop in 2021

  • Reasonable draft capital at 5;164 to the LAR

  • Undersized at 5’ 9”, 194 lbs for an NFL RB

  • Top-end film speed is very average and ran a very poor 40ty:  4.65 (20th PCTL) at the combine [Did improve to 4.54 (56th PCTL) at his Pro Day]

  • Just does not seem to have that other gear once he gets into space and can be ran down by linebackers

  • Has a history of putting the ball on the ground; only 3 fumbles on 204 attempts in 2021 but had 5 fumbles in 2020 with similar usage

  • Gets blown up at times in pass protection but is willing to put his body in the way; needs a lot of work with technique in order to play on 3rd down at the next level

  • Not overly impressive athlete; combine performance and pro day left a lot to be desired

  • Landing spot is not ideal with the Rams but could be worse; likely only a committee RB at this landing spot that will play on 3rd down
