RB Kenjon Barner, Oregon

Panthers, 6th round. Ore.: Below-average size. Average hand size.

Positives: Average upper-body strength. Above-average speed. Good hands. Good body control for off-target passes. Above-average acceleration, burst, and agility. Patient. Fair cutback vision. Adequate power and breaks some arm tackles. Above-average balance after contact. Very quick feet. Fair pass blocker who keeps his base after contact.

Negatives: A little indecisive in short yardage opportunities. Upright through the line. Hesitant on inside runs and dances too much behind the line. Lack of size will likely prevent him from being consistently effective as a blocker at next level. Though he exhibited good hands overall in college, he dropped two fairly easy ones in the Senior Bowl game.

Projection: Will be stuck behind DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart at the outset, but could eventually work his way into rotation. Has the blocking skills to be a solid 3rd-down back. Draft as RB5 with RB3 potential if he starts.
