A downhill runner with good contact balance. Bounces off tacklers. Runs with his pads over his toes with good body lean. Follows and cuts off his fullback’s block. Meets the tackler with his shoulder. Can spin out from a defender if not wrapped up. Demonstrates a quick upfield burst on screen passes. Picks his way through traffic and keeps his feet. Good shiftiness and wiggle to elude tacklers. Quick feet straight ahead, laterally, and to the hole. Sees the cut back running lanes, cuts and accelerates through the lane. Has the ability to catch all pass routes, good eye/hand coordination. Positive production as a receiver running flats, check downs, quick outs, and wheel routes. Can step through a tackler’s grasp. Proved his desire to score in 2011 with a record-tying 39 touchdowns. Drives legs on contact. He led the NCAA in rushing in 2011 with 1923 yards and 2229 yards from scrimmage.
