SCOUTING REPORT

One of the fastest players timed during the pro day circuit, he registered in the mid 4.4’s at his workout on March 26th at Stony Brook. A sixth-year senior, who has experienced a roller coaster of ups and downs throughout his collegiate career, accompanied by numerous accomplishments, a transfer and two medical redshirt seasons. In 2012, he suffered a broken collarbone two games into the season, ending his freshman year prematurely. He would bounce back in 2013, with strong performances against Kansas State (81 rushing yards) and Wisconsin (70 rushing yards). Following that season, he wanted to play closer to home and decided to transfer from UMass to Stony Brook. His Seawolves career began with a bang, as he rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2014. The following season, he would endure a season-ending shoulder injury. He has since made a conscious effort to get stronger and finished his final two seasons healthy, while being named a two-time team captain. In total, he would go on to wrap up his Stony Brook career with 3,036 rushing yards on 562 carries, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and scoring 31 touchdowns in 38 games. On film, this is an explosive runner with quickness and acceleration, to go along with quick change of direction ability. Will need to improve upon his pass protection and ball catching abilities, he finished with just four career receptions—an area of his game that wasn’t utilized much. His hands have not been an issue during the NFL Draft preparation, as he has been working with former NFL running back Brian Leonard at Parabolic Performance leading up to the draft. He has also been training with current Lions fullback Michael Burton to help enhance his pass blocking techniques. He possesses next level speed and could be an excellent change of pace ‘slasher’ back in a running back by committee system.
