I noticed this dude while watching some tape on Cody Lattimer (who's legit btw). His stats don't jump off the screen, but there is a ton of talent in him. And he did average a no-joke 6.7 per in 2013. He's a big boy, but he's a very smooth athlete. He's a long strider so his speed is sneaky. But he's the type to chew up yards before defenders can converge. He's not a power back but he runs with great strength. What I mean by that is, he doesn't seek collisions but he's tough to take down. He doesn't look to punish. But its not easy to get him on the ground. He can run in close quarters between the guards, or he can bounce it outside. He's got enough speed to house it. His pass pro looks more than solid to me. He seems to identify and pick up blitzers with no problem. His hands are very nice. He can smoothly pluck and scat whenever it is necessary.
This guy is a gem. Don't let the stats fool you, when he got touches he did work. He can be whatever you want him to be. He seems to be very under the radar, but he's probably a top 5 back in this draft (Hyde, Sankey, West, Williams, Houston).
