Some things I noticed in this video and other videos of his I've watched:
-Excellent vision, sees things happening that are not directly in his line of vision.
-Doesn't often lose yardage.
-Very efficient in movement, doesn't make a lot of unnecessary cuts that hurt momentum.
-Patience, willing to let the blocking develop and see what the play is giving him.
-Needs space to operate, has trouble when the defense is on top of him.
yep. saw a lot of the same thing.
and sure, he runs upright but when you see him running, he always scanning the field. i don't see this as a negative at all for the type of player he is and the things he's capable of doing. he's the kind of guy who will have a high ypa, but it will be because he will have a 15 yard run after quite a few 1 yard runs. he's also the guy who is always a threat to take it to the endzone, regardless of where he is on the field. all he needs is a little space and the guy is gone.
i see him having probably equal amounts carries and receptions, quite a few carries less than the other ball carriers, but equal or more TDs. he's a big play/scoring threat player who can line up anywhere and who will be requiring special attention from defenses any time he's on the field.

I think it's great that our 6th round pick actually has a highlite video..........worth watching.
