He has decent but not great speed for a RB (mid 4.4s would be my guess).
He has decent vision on those runs - they aren't all daylight type runs.
He can make moves between the first and second levels which not everyone can in that tight of a space. He runs under decent control in hole.
He has a lot of agility to scrape through small holes but doesn't have elite balance.
He has some power and is willing to put this shoulder down and run through a LB or Safety when he needs a yard. On one of his earlier goal line runs he ran through two people for the TD.
He is a very good receiver. He can run downfield routes, he can catch the ball cleanly on the move and he is excellent at catching swing passes.
I see a kid with a lot of talent. I'd be happy to invest a 6th or 7th rounder here. Most such picks never make it in the league and he might not either but he definitely has big league ability. I don't know if he can overcome his mental issues to become a quality player but he didn't flame out because he is overwhelmed by the talent at the collegiate level. He was a step above most of the other guys on the field even as a freshman.
He actually reminds me quite a bit of Jamaal Charles who probably should have been drafted in the first round (my pet cat from the 2008 draft along with Ray Rice).
