STRENGTHS: Lightning quick feet and silky change of direction skills. Nice job releasing off the line of scrimmage and accelerating to his top speed quickly. Initial suddenness to shake press coverage. Ambitious ballcarrier with adequate vision and looks to score every time he touches the ball. Natural body control and coordination to make adjustments on the ball with quick hands to snare throws away from his frame. Tracks very well and uses his body well to shield defenders on over the shoulder throws. Good concentration. Tough and plays through injuries. Experienced return man on punts with two career scores and a 9.8 yards per return average. Three-year starter (34 career starts) with time in the slot and outside, lining up all over the Buckeyes offense.
WEAKNESSES: Lean muscled and not physically imposing, looking more like a track athlete than football player. Needs to spend more time in the weight room. Uses his body too much on catches and inconsistent in contested situations. Not the most natural hands catcher. Not overly elusive in space and not the most creative. Won?t break many tackles after initial contact, lacking the balance or body strength. Wild, uncontrolled routes, failing to routinely sell his path or gain separation with body fakes. Thin build, which leads to long-term durability questions.
