... I think he could potentially see the field very early.
I'll be honest, I was kinda "meh" about this pick when it came down... but after watching his tape, I really like his style of play.
He's not an overly powerful kid, or a true homerun threat, but he consistently runs with good vision and patience, is elusive at the point with his north south/slashing style, he runs with good pad level and has that natural leverage, he has a solid build, despite being a smaller back (5-9 204)and is really developed in the lower half, he shows the ability to rip off chunk plays and has good play speed, he shows natural hands out of the backfield and could play on 1st, 2nd or 3rd downif he continues to develop in pass-pro (willing and able in that area)... though that's always something that young backs will always have to work on.
He also protects the football, with (2) fumbles in 754 career touches and reportedly is a solid kid off the field.
Overall, you have to love that he was ultra-productive, despite not being a full-time starter for his entire career (a lot of RB talent in Madison recently).
