I really like what I've seen of this guy. Seems to be universally considered a late round pick, but is very strong and slippery, with top notch production. Forty time is ok (4.55), bench press and 3-cone are excellent. Seems to be a very complete back and might be a late round steal.

From watching him, His biggest strength seems to be squeezing through tight areas and the biggest question mark is, maybe, vision, as it didn't always seem like he picked the right lane.

Anyone know much about this guy?

Yep. I had us taking him in the 6th in my most recent mock. Short with good size, speed, and production against good competition. Love to see us get him.

I would like this guy on the roster for sure. He doesn't have the breakaway speed but he's shifty. You said that he lacks vision but I think it's one of his better attributes. I think his vision makes up for his lack of top end speed. He seems to set up his blocks well and use cuts to force defenders to take a wrong angle. My favorite highlight I saw from him was late in the 4th quarter of a close game, 3rd and 4. He stiff armed one defender, and Madden truck sticked another to get the first down. Then had the awareness to slide/take a knee inbounds to keep the clock running.

A 4.55 40 time for a RB is pretty slow, but I wouldn't have anything against selecting a RB with a late round pick. As you know, for the most part, RBs are a dime a dozen in my eyes. Unless it's a guy like Adrian Peterson, Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Marcus Allen, etc., there's little reason to use a high pick on a RB.

Not blazing by any means, but faster than much of this year's class. He improved slightly at his pro day to 4.53. His 10 and 20 yd splits are quite good, as is his shuttle, indicating good acceleration, but perhaps lacking a top gear.

CT, I didn't really mean to knock his vision, just guessing at a weakness because I did see him choose the wrong lane a couple of times. He certainly does very well finding little holes where there doesn't seem to be one.

If there's any back that's gonna be drafted by us it's most likely than not going to be Stephan Taylor.
