RB Vick Ballard, Mississippi State


Colts, 5th round. Miss. St.: Adequate size. Above-average hand size.

Positives: Keeps balance after contact. Good hands and can extend arms to snag passes. Adequate track speed, but looks faster on film. Above-average quickness. Good vision and picks his way methodically through line. Good burst and fair change of direction skills. Athletic. Above-average acceleration in open field. Fair power and always fights for extra yards. Quick feet. Above-average upper-body strength.

Negatives: Doesn’t always protect ball through line. Overpowered somewhat in Senior Bowl pass protection drills.

Projection: He should be a solid contributor in his first year in a committee with Donald Brown, Darren Evans, and Delone Carter. He needs to work on blocking to be more than just a contributor, though. Draft as a 2012 RB4 with RB3 potential.
