Silas Redd, RB, Southern California

Redskins, UDFA. 2012 transfer from Penn State. Has enough running skills to stick on a roster or practice squad somewhere. His injury history is a little scary, though.

Positives: Though his height and weight are slightly below-average, he has a solid build. Adequate hand size. Good downfield blocker. Good cutback vision. Adequate speed. Above-average burst. Gets low through line to push for extra yards. Keeps squared when making moves. Good power and breaks a lot of arm tackles. Okay pass blocker. Fairly patient. Protects ball through the line. Churns legs through contact. Balanced after contact. Adequate upper body strength. Good vertical leap.

Negatives: Slightly below-average height and bulk for the position. Suspect ball security and fumbled in 2012 bowl game with small hit. Below-average hands and seems to not look passes into hands. Minor knee surgery in March 2013 and a cleanup in August 2013 and missed around half the season. Then was injured through the end of the season. Slow track speed for the position and the size.

Projection: No need to draft, but keep an eye on his playing time.
