Lions, UDFA. Penn. St.: Slightly below-average size.
Positives: Good long speed. Adequate burst and vision. Despite size, lowers shoulder well to gain extra yards. Also plays special teams.
Negatives: Kicked off team in August 2011 but reinstated. Poor hands and tracking, and ball gets to body. Below-average acceleration. Below-average upper-body strength.
Projection: Enters a fairly crowded RB depth chart, with Best, Leshoure, Kevin Smith definitely ahead of him, and I’d add Joique Bell, too. Will battle Keiland Williams for the last RB spot on the team, and his special-teams ability gives him a good shot to make the roster. But his best bet is the practice squad or another team. Not fantasy relevant.
