Analysis

Rotational big-play back who has struggled a bit with injuries while at Kentucky – broken rib in 2020 and missed time during preseason camp in 2021. Coaches have praised his receiving ability but only 8 career receptions due to the structure of Kentucky’s offense. Despite the reputation as a big-play threat, isn’t an overly creative runner. Sees holes well and gets as many yards as the defense gives him. Rarely advances beyond the point of first contact. Has the explosiveness and long speed to bust plays open when given the opportunity. Needs to stay healthy in 2022 and contribute in a big way to elevate his reputation to that of a draftable prospect. Could benefit from more touches this year if Chris Rodriguez Jr. is suspended for an extended period.
