RB Chris Polk, Washington

Eagles, UDFA. Wash.: Adequate size. Above-average hand size.

Positives: Good vision. Fair lateral movement and quick feet. Adequate power. Lowers shoulders well in short yardage. Average speed and burst. OK receiver. Fair hands and can extend. Good balance after contact. Hard to drag down.

Negatives: No speed to get outside. Makes poor decisions. Loses some power in short-yardage situations because he leans in rather than drives — needs to be more consistent in keeping legs moving. Looks unwilling to be creative. Looked bad in pass-blocking drills in Senior Bowl practices. Reportedly had poor interviews at Senior Bowl.

Projection: Isn’t as good as his college hype, but is better than his undrafted status might indicate. Had 4th-round talent, but reports of a degenerative hip condition made him fall. Lands in a great situation on Eagles as backup to McCoy. Thin depth chart at RB and team has indicated they want to spell McCoy more often. Is also a nice change of pace to McCoy. Draft as a McCoy handcuff and potential RB3.
