Strengths: Versatility to play wide receiver or running back. A jack of all trades type player with a high football IQ. Excellent change of direction and speed to challenge corners. Productive at Ohio State this season, scoring 15 touchdowns and totaling 1636-yards (771 rushing, 865 receiving). He is a great athlete. From the running back position he shows solid vision, balance and acceleration. He's also willing to lower a shoulder to gain extra yards. Can step in right away as a return specialist. Weaknesses: Some NFL teams will struggle to find a position for him. Lacks an ideal frame for wide receiver or running back. Needs to improve against press coverage. Not the greatest set of hands and tends to body catch. His route running needs to be refined. A lot of his carries came on jet-sweeps and carries from shotgun. No tape on him pass blocking.
