RB Matthew Tucker, TCU

Eagles, UDFA. TCU: Great height and above-average bulk. Average hand size.

Positives: Good burst, speed, and balance. Very good power. Breaks a lot of tackles. Very good open-field vision. Good patience. Good hands catcher — tracks ball well deep. Keeps legs churning through contact for extra yards. Great leaper. Fair pass blocker. Adequate hands.

Negatives: Needs to protect ball better when he fights for extra yards. Runs a little upright. Injured ankle in early 2012 season kept him out a few games. Not much experience as a receiver out of the backfield. Suspect vision behind the line. Below-average upper-body strength.

Projection: Has a real shot at being LeSean McCoy’s backup ahead of Chris Polk, Bryce Brown, and fellow undrafted rookie Miguel Maysonet. Worth drafting as an RB5 with RB3 potential… maybe RB2 if he ends up starting.
