Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: A quick, smooth athlete with the footwork to make sharp cuts and redirect his momentum in a flash. Shows good vision and patience with natural running instincts. Has good straight-line speed with quick acceleration and a second gear downfield. Has a good-sized frame to add some bulk and get stronger. Has reliable hands out of the backfield with a combined 43 receptions the past two years. Shows very good effort in pass protection, giving up his body and taking on blocks. Has some experience as a return man on kickoffs. WEAKNESSES: An upright runner with a lean torso and not a lot of bulk on his frame. A one-speed runner and lacks any explosive qualities with tight hips. Has poor balance and has the bad habit of losing coordination when changing directions -- his feet and upper body look to be on two different pages. Goes down too easily upon contact and needs to do a better job staying on his feet and anticipating hits. Needs to be more of a finisher and run with more purpose and determination. Has battled several injuries the past two seasons, including an ankle issue that plagued him through his senior year and caused him to miss the final two games of the 2011 regular season (didn't even practice). Has had maturity and coachability issues at both Tennessee and Louisiana Tech -- questionable passion and work ethic to make it as a pro. Allowed himself to be academically ineligible for the 2011 bowl game and his final game in college. NFL Comparison: Emmanuel Moody, NFL free agent -- Dane Brugler

Player Overview

Creer was a top-10 running back recruit at the prep level, choosing Tennessee over Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama and several other prominent programs. He saw immediate action in 2007 as a true freshman, recording 214 yards on 36 carries (5.9) and 1 touchdown. Fighting with Arian Foster and Montario Hardesty for playing time, Creer was a back-up in 2008 as a sophomore, finishing second on the team with 388 yards on 73 carries (5.3) and 4 scores. He decided to transfer prior to the 2009 season and chose Louisiana Tech over Baylor, TCU and Rice, sitting out that year due to transfer rules. Creer was a rotational starter in 2010 as a junior with 6 starts, recording a team-best 1,181 yards on 212 carries (5.6) and 10 touchdowns with 25 catches for 181 yards (7.2), earning Second Team All-WAC honors. He was hampered by injuries in 2011 as a senior and wasn't as productive (10 starts), finishing with 838 yards on 198 attempts (4.2) for 9 scores, adding 18 catches for 93 yards (5.2) and 1 touchdown. Creer is a linear, one-speed runner with good instincts and vision, but struggles to stay balanced through contact and won't break a lot of tackles. He decided to leave Tennessee after several run-ins with coaches and has character and maturity concerns. Creer has good speed for his size, but is very average across the board. Has durability concerns and will struggle to stick on a roster at the next level.
