So I have been watching some of the film on him and trying to figure out some of the hype on him from a lot of people. Before I pretend to give a great analysis I want to say I dont think I am a coach and dont pretend to be one, so if you can give me more input that would be great....

   Pros:

      Great Visibility: He follow his blockers extremely well and seems to know when and where to cut back. The piece posted on here previously about zone blocking seems to help his abilities in our offense.

      Some Moves (Shiftiness): seemed to be able to get himself out of trouble and move upfield to gain positive yards when they didnt appear to be there.

 

    Cons:

        Elite Speed: He seems to lack the speed to get away/around the corner in high school which bothers me. he does possess some strength which allows him to break tackles outside...but if he cant break away from high schoolers consistently how will he fare in a D-1 program. Is his blocking that much better than the competition? Is that why he has huge lanes to run through?

Overall: While this is not detailed and I would appreciate some input it is what I observed from a few minutes of tape. Can someone tell me what his competition is like? While his visibility seems to counteract his speed for me I think there are better backs on our board. If he signs with FSU I hope he has a great career, but my observations lead me to believe there may be better prospects. I may be wrong in my analysis but I think he is a product of superior talent and coaching rather than pure talent. Any info is appreciated.

 

Thanks,

PJV
