Notes:

The California prep was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year as a defensive back and an all-league selection as a running back. Also lettered twice in track and basketball. Saw action in one game against Oklahoma in 2007, rushing three times for 17 yards (5.7-yard average) and zero touchdowns. Missed the rest of the season with a foot injury and was granted a medical redshirt. Saw action in all 12 games (six starts) in ’08, rushing 106-485-8 (4.6) while grabbing 20 passes for 256 yards (12.8-yard average) and two touchdowns. In ’09, he started 11-of-12 games (did not start against Nevada) and posted 207-1,296-13 (6.3) on the ground and 30-418-5 (13.9) as a receiver. Broke a 53-year-old single-season school record when he scored 110 points during the season and tied another by scoring five touchdowns against Idaho. Suffered a torn ACL during a conditioning drill in January ’10 and missed the entire season. Returned from a major knee injury to be named the WAC Player of the Year, rushing 249-1,517-19 (6.1) and receiving 17-171-4 (10.1) in 13 starts. Set single-season school records for rushing touchdowns (19), total TDs (23) and scoring (138). Fumbled four times in 632 career touches, gaining 5.9 yards per carry. 

Positives:

Good bulk with a rocked-up upper body layered with muscle and cannon arms — built like a small brick house. Productive. Good forward lean. Has shown he can go the distance (three career touchdowns of 80-plus yards). Reliable catcher. Takes good care of the ball. Has a 36-inch vertical jump.

Negatives:

Average initial quickness — does not press the line. Tight hips. Runs upright. Builds to speed. Ordinary instincts and anticipation. Gears down to cut. Average burst, elusiveness and tackle-breaking ability. Ran out of shotgun/“pistol” formations and took handoffs moving laterally. Effectiveness decreased in fourth quarters and late in season. Durability has been an issue — missed two full seasons because of injuries. Let the ball into his body when catching at the Combine.

Summary:

Strong, compactly built, one-cut, downhill zone runner who can be effective as a tandem back in the right system, though he is not a true power back despite his size. Size-speed-strength ratio can elevate draft status.
