Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He's quick to the hole, shows excellent vision for the cutback, possesses good acceleration and enough lateral agility to elude defenders. Sees would-be tacklers coming and breaks a lot of tackles with a nice spin move, as well as a strong stiff-arm. No stranger to the weight room, Michael runs low to the ground with good pad level and lateral agility to make strong cuts.

WEAKNESSES: History of injuries. Did not excel in pass protection during Shrine Game practices. Attitude and coachability questions.

--By Dane Brugler & Rob Rang

Player Overview

Michael exploded onto the Big 12 as a true freshman, earning the coaches' Freshman of the Year award for leading the Aggies with 844 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns despite starting only four games.

Michael rotated with Cyrus Gray as the Aggies' starting running back in 2010 and was leading the team with 631 yards and four scores over the first eight games when he was lost for the remainder of the season after suffering a broken right leg against Texas Tech.

In 2011, he once again demonstrated his talents, rushing for a career-high 899 yards and eight scores in the first nine games (including six starts) before tearing the ACL in his left knee against Oklahoma.

Michael entered the 2012 season rated by some talent evaluators as the top senior running back in the country, but was nothing more than a reserve as a senior after landing in head coach Kevin Sumlin's doghouse due to some attitude issues. However, he did remain productive as the goal-line back with 12 rushing touchdowns.

When healthy, Michael has shown many of the attributes scouts are looking for in a headlining back. He still has talent, and could warrant a second-day selection with his upside.
