His uncle, Jeremiah Trotter, was a linebacker for 11 seasons (1998-2007, ’09) in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Terrance was named the Texas 2A Offensive Player of the Year in 2006 after rushing for 2,815 yards and 36 touchdowns. Also participated in basketball, track and power lifting. Began his collegiate career at Houston in ’07 and played in all 13 games (one start against SMU) as a true freshman, rushing 109 times for 550 yards (5.0-yard average) and six touchdowns. Attended Texarkana (Texas) College in ’08 but didn’t participate in football. Transferred to Baylor for the ’09 season and played in all 12 games, starting against Texas, and rushed 68-200-5 (2.9). Produced 46-295-2 (6.4) rushing in 13 games as a reserve in ’10. Returned an onside kickoff 38 yards for a touchdown against Texas Tech. Emerged in ’11 when he started 12-of-13 games (did not start against Missouri) and led the Big 12 with 250-1,547-21 (6.2) rushing. In his career, caught 12 balls for 133 yards (11.1-yard average) and one TD. Graduated. Medically excluded from lifting at Combine because of a right shoulder injury. Has four fumbles in 376 career touches at Baylor and a 5.5-yard career rushing average.  


Has strong hips and nice bulk to withstand hits. Runs hard — hits the hole and barrels straight ahead. Good feet for a bigger back. Squares his shoulders and makes subtle lateral cuts. Good lean and leg drive. Uses his stiff-arm. Gets better with a lather and finishes strong in the second half. Has a 371⁄2-inch vertical jump (second-best of all backs at the Combine while easily outweighing all). Well-liked by teammates.


Average initial quickness. Does not have speed to reach the perimeter or break away. Stride lacks extension and fluidity. Tight hips. Not creative or elusive. Average lateral agility and body control. Gears down to change direction and cuts off his heels. Barely used in the passing game. Carries the ball loosely. Showed he could be contained (see Kansas State, Texas A&M). Only a one-year producer. Many of his yards were blocked for him. 


Thickly built, straight-linish, first- and second-down back at his best when he is able to square his shoulders and roll downhill. Has a bull-in-a-china-shop style, but was productive as a senior after waiting his turn behind Jay Finley, and could warrant interest as a No. 2/short-yardage back. Limited special-teams value could affect status. Shows some likeness to Chiefs RB Jackie Battle and might need some time to develop.
