The Cardinals' leading rusher in 2014 despite only five starts, Radcliff led Louisville with 144 carries for 737 yards (5.1 average) and 12 touchdowns. He had to share the backfield with Dominique Brown and Michael Dyer in 2014, but it was clear Radcliff gave Louisville more pop on offense and with Brown and Dyer no longer on the roster, Radcliff is the clear-cut backfield weapon in 2015.
STRENGTHS: He runs physical, tough and low to the ground, attacking defenders and looking to initiate contact. Radcliff is put together well for the position and makes it tough on tacklers to finish him off with his balance and natural run power while also flashing the foot quickness to make guys miss.
WEAKNESSES: He had only six catches last season, but averaged 14 yards per reception so his role as a receiver should grow in 2015.
