Player Background
Rushed for 555 yards on 93 carries for Notre Dame in 2013, while scoring three TDs ... 361 yards and five scores in 2012 ... Ran back 90 career kickoffs with two return TDs as a freshman ... Shined at the NFL Combine, running a 4.48 40-yard dash, while ranking as a top performer in the vertical leap (38.0 inches) and the 60-yard shuttle (11.50 seconds) ... Dynamic home-run threat ... NFL pedigree with his father, George, spending more than adecade as a defensive back for the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos ... Lacks lateral quickness to go with his great straight-line speed ... Not a powerful runner ... Questionable instincts and field vision ... Underachieved during college career.
