I agree with you on his positives.
But you also earlier said he is "productive." Keep in mind he runs and has ran behind NFL-caliber lineman against college D's designed for speed to stop the spread.
He could go earlier because its a relatively weak RB class, espicially for power runners. Most top RBs coming out are smaller speed backs.
