Texans, UDFA. Ill.: FB size. Above-average hand size.
Positives: Adequate quickness, power, and burst for the size. Good spin move. Surprisingly quick feet for a big back. Reportedly above-average hands in NFLPA Bowl practices and at Pro Day.
Negatives: A little slow to get through line. Been arrested twice for driving with suspended license. Academically ineligible for 2011 bowl game.
Projection: Is probably the Texans’ 4th RB entering camp, and probably won’t contribute much in 2012 if he makes the team. But watch him in preseason and be willing to pick him up if one of their top RBs is injured. Has potential to contribute as part-timer or fill in at FB.
