Player Overview

Magee signed with LSU as a highly regarded prep who projected best to running back but played quarterback in high school. He showed off his toughness and football intelligence by making the transition quickly, logging action in five games as a true freshman.

Magee entered his senior campaign with zero starts but appearances in 27 career games and a history of performing well when called upon, including as a junior when he rushed for 626 yards and eight touchdowns as Jeremy Hill's primary backup. Magee hoped to star in 2014 but was forced to again share the load with another likely future early-round pick, freshman phenom Leonard Fournette.

Despite the running back by committee approach, Magee was once again productive, averaging 5.1 yards per carry against SEC competition for a total of 571 yards and three scores. He proved that his production was hardly just a byproduct of LSU's run-heavy approach, enjoying a strong week of practice (and game, itself) at the East-West Shrine Game.

Though he doesn't necessarily look the part of a feature NFL back, Magee has a squatty, powerful frame and quick feet that make him tough to tackle. He's also a reliable receiver out of the backfield - a combination that could earn him a late-round selection and make it hard on an NFL coaching staff to ignore come game day.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: While short, Magee is far from small, sporting a powerful frame that makes him very difficult for defenders to square up and tackle. He possesses good quickness to and through the hole, as well as good lateral agility, balance and burst to elude would-be tacklers. There is no hesitation in Magee's movements. He makes sharp, decisive cuts that leave defenders grasping at air and he's powerful and determined enough to run through arm tackles. Magee also showed good hands to extend and pull in passes outside of frame. Turned heads at the East-West Shrine Game.

WEAKNESSES: Has been a rotational player throughout his career and projects as nothing more than this at the next level. Tops out quickly, lacking the breakaway speed to gain yardage in chunks. Better football player than athlete who lacks the length and straight-line speed to play positions other than running back or returner, limiting his value to the club. Doesn't possess ideal physical traits and will have to make it at the next level based on grit, versatility and toughness.

10/22/2014 - Terrence Magee amassed a career-high 220 all-purpose yards and rushed for two touchdowns, Tre'Davious White scored on a 67-yard punt return and LSU routed Kentucky 41-3 on Saturday night. Travin Dural caught a 32-yard touchdown pass from Anthony Jennings and Leonard Fournette added a short scoring run for the Tigers (6-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference), who raced to a 27-3 halftime lead en route to becoming bowl eligible for a school-record 15th straight year. The Wildcats (5-2, 2-2) came to LSU in the thick of the SEC East race, only to be handed their fourth lopsided loss in as many trips to Death Valley since 2000.

Kentucky also saw freshman running back Stanley "Boom" Williams, their all-purpose yards leader, knocked from the game on a helmet-to-helmet hit during a kickoff return. Magee's night included a season-high 127 yards rushing, 44 yards receiving and 49 yards on kickoff returns. His touchdowns came on second-half runs of 9 and 23 yards. The Tigers ran the ball 51 times for 303 yards and outgained the Wildcats 423-217. Jennings attempted only 14 passes, hitting seven for 120 yards, and did not turn the ball over. - AP Sports
