Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Possesses NFL size, build and power. Gets north-south quickly and attacks the line of scrimmage with determination, showing little hesitation in his run style. Doesn?t go down easy and continues to pump his legs through contact. Trusts his eyes and has some anticipation to see holes before they develop. Stuck on a crowded depth chart and had only 209 carries at the college level, but doesn?t have a lot of miles on the odometer and average 6.0 yards per carry.

WEAKNESSES: Has some tightness and appears too muscle-bound when attempting to quickly redirect his momentum. Ordinary explosive traits and lacks shifty moves. Tends to run too upright and will expose his body too easily. Somewhat unproven as a pass-catcher with average hands and receiving skills. Not as stout of a blocker as he appears. Missed most of 2012 after tearing an ACL so durability needs to check out. Only seven career starts and isn?t used to a large workload.

Player Overview

Stuck on a crowded running back depth chart at LSU, Blue played more of a reserve role in college, but has the all-around skill-set to be a reliable option at the next level.

In rushing for over 100 yards in both of LSU's first two games of 2012, Blue looked poised to emerge as the Tigers' top back .Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL against Idaho and missed the rest of the year. He returned in 2013 to play in 13 games with two starts, rushing for 343 yards and a touchdown.

While sporting a taller, leaner frame than most scouts prefer, Blue is quick to the hole, weaves around defenders nicely and plays with surprising power. He did earn an invite to the Scouting Combine, where he ran a 4.58 40-yard dash and posted a 32-inch vertical.
