Notes:

Engaged. Also lettered in basketball (four times) and track and field (three times) in addition to being the class president as a Wisconsin prep. Saw action in 12 games in 2008 on kickoff and kick-return teams and limited time as a reserve running back, rushing four times for 14 yards (3.5-yard average) and one touchdown. Did not play against Michigan State because of a sports hernia. Appeared in all 13 contests on special teams in ’09, returning four kickoffs for 78 yards (19.5-yard average). Made the first three starts of his career in ’10, playing in all 13 games and rushing 3-19-1 (6.3), returning 3-57-0 (19.0) and grabbing eight passes for 82 yards (10.2-yard average) and two touchdowns. Sat out part of ’11 spring practice with a shoulder injury. Played in all 14 games in the fall, making eight starts at fullback with his non-starts due to starting with two tight ends, and managed 20-246-0 (12.3) receiving. Team captain.

Positives:

Large hands. Pops out of his stance. Displays nice knee bend and body control to coordinate blocking fits. Is able to get his head around as a short receiver and shows decent hands to secure catches. Has special-teams experience. Plays hard. Very football-smart. Comes from a pro-style system. Outstanding personal and football character. 

Negatives:

Athletic ability and size are just adequate. Has short arms and lacks bulk strength — repped 225 pounds only 14 times at the Combine. Stiff movement. Does not explode through his hips and drive defenders out of the hole. Struggles to sustain. Limited receiving skills and does not factor as a runner.

Summary:

Intelligent, tough, blue-collar fullback praised by staff for his consistent work habits, energy and character. However, he struggles to consistently win as an isolation-lead blocker and will have to excel on special teams. Was the only true fullback invited to the Combine in a dismal class and an increasingly obsolete NFL position.
