Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Mark shows very good acceleration out of his cuts and scampers through arm tackles towards daylight and the second level. He is very shifty between the tackles, doesn't run hesitant and wastes little time getting north-south downfield. Isn't afraid to lower his pads and deliver a pop at the point of attack. He lines up at running back and wide receiver and is a versatile offensive weapon WEAKNESSES: Smallish frame and won't be able to put on too much more weight for the next level. Showed signs of wearing down toward the end of 2012, and durability is something to watch with his undersized body type. Lacks a true NFL position, but has skills that translate to the NFL level. --Dane Brugler

Player Overview

A scatback-type, Mark led the Big Ten in all-purpose yardage last season averaging 166.6 yards per game, recording 2,166 total yards. Mark has also made his mark on special teams as a return man, averaging 18.7 on punt returns last year with a pair of touchdowns. Although he doesn't have the prototypical build to be an every-down back at the next level, Mark could be used as an all-purpose weapon in the NFL who can catch passes out of the backfield and return kicks.
