Editor’s note: This article is part of an ongoing series in which we will highlight a collection of prospects in advance of the 2015 NFL Draft, beginning April 30.
Miami, Running Back
Height: 5' 9 1/8"
Weight: 207 pounds
Hands: 9 1/4"
Arms: 30 3/8"
Wing Span: 74 1/8"
Ben Press Reps: N/A (choice)
Vertical Jump: 33 1/2"
Broad Jump: 10'
Positives: Explosive big-play threat on stretch, toss and counter plays. Single most dangerous open-field runner among this class of backs. True breakaway speed to hit the home-run play, but uses more than his jets to evade defenders. Deploys an array of quick-punch stiff arms, tight spins and jump cuts to keep plays alive. Sharp footwork allows him to change direction in a flash. Softs hands. Upside in the kick-return game.
Negatives: Concerns around his size. Smaller size makes his susceptible to big hits, and doesn’t help in pass protection. Not one to do much after first contact. Hampered by injuries in 2013 and 2014. Ball security a concern.
NFL comparison: Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts RB)
