Bengals, 6th round. Neb.: Adequate size. Above-average hand size.
Positives: Keeps legs churning. Good hands and can snag passes away from body. Sets up blockers well in open field. Adequate burst and agility. Fairly quick and elusive in the open field. Protects ball well. Fair balance. Fairly decisive. Adequate upper-body strength. Very good explosiveness and lateral quickness. Very good change-of-direction ability.
Negatives: Below-average speed. Sprained left MCL in first game of 2012 and missed several games.
Projection: Enters Bengals team with established starter in BenJarvus Green-Ellis and excellent rookie RB Giovani Bernard, and likely won’t beat out either of them for touches. Will also compete with Bernard Scott for backup position for 3rd-down RB role. Similar game to Scott and it’s a tossup which one wins the battle. Not much immediate value, but could become a solid contributor in years to come.
