5-11, 218 pounds and ran 4.65 40 time with 22 bench reps.

Just a camp body.

Maybe he is just a camp body, but I thought this article made some good points. Winn was one of the most explosive runners in the draft and has strong physical comparables.

Obviously Ridley and Vereen are locked in the top spots, but maybe this kid could make a push.

I thought he had some good moments at Cincinnati last year. Had him as a mid/late round pick. Probably just a body but so are most late rounders and undrafted guys.

He is an excellent blitz blocker for a college back with limited experience and IIRC he was a top special teamed as well. Definitely has some positive traits. The limited exposure hurt his stock more than anything.

How is he going to beat out Tebow for the #3 RB slot?
