    This guy gets better every year.

    -Prototypical tailback size. Not too slight, not too upright. He looks like a small guy on tape but he's listed at 5-11 and slightly under 220. It'll be interesting to see what he scales at the combine.
    -Low center of gravity; balance
    -Burst through the hole
    -Leg churn and pad level
    -Shifty
    -Lacks that frightening homerun speed, but has a good amount of speed to make you pay. He won't outrace anyone unless they're already on their heels.
    -Good pass-receiving ability
    -Needs work in pass-protection

    Overall, nothing especially athletic about him, but he's a really balanced, do-it-all player. He's being hyped as a 1st or 2nd rounder. I think his range, right now, is the end of the second round or third round IMO. I really like the fact that he's gotten better each year, and the Saban-Gase connection might have him on the Phin's radar for rounds 2-3. We don't have any RB's slated to the roster in 2018-2019 except for Kenyan Drake.

    What do you guys think?

    Fair enough assessment, Invid. I have 4 backs ahead of him who are better fits for this offense: Rodney Anderson, Sony Michel, Ronald Jones, and Royce Freeman.

    Thanks for sharing, Todd!

    I'm no tape-watcher extraordinaire, especially with a position as nuanced as tailback. I'll be sure to check out those guys you mentioned, I'm already kind of familiar with Michel and Freeman.

    Just found out that Draft Breakdown moved to a 2$ a month model. Argh. That stinks.

    if he would of came out I think he's your top 3 with Barkley and Penny.
