Positives: Versatile player, doing everything on the field well. Good balanced runner that can navigate his way inside and outside the tackles. Shows patience, allowing the play to develop so he can maximize the run. Makes athletic grabs and turns them upfield in a flash. Dependable hands. Sharp route runner in the slot. Can assume kick-return duties with potential to be effective. Outstanding production at Nebraska, totaling 5,278 yards from scrimmage and 46 total touchdowns (53 games played). Named Senior Bowl MVP.
Negatives: Could stand to add weight. Would expect better top-end speed and lateral quickness given his size. Questions about ability in pass protection. Ball security a concern with 13 career fumbles.
