This is someone that is not getting a lot of hype but presents the total package as a running back. Injuries really slowed him down this year but he's been a tremendous running back at Nebraska and has shown excellent hands for making catches out of the backfield.
He would fit well with this team as he runs with power, but also has considerable quickness, could be effective in the pistol offense and comes with highly regarded character and leadership. He's got definite "Tebow" like characteristics, he's tough, hard-nosed, tremendous motor, he gives 125% on every single play, I'm sure a lot of people will look at him and think "physical white running back" and instantly try to pigeon-hole him in as a fullback or some other crap but he's truly got the completely package, capable of running the ball inside and out, he represents outstanding value in the later rounds.....4th and further back.
