"He's probably one of the most explosive kids in the state of Texas. He was on the state champion track team at DeSoto and came to our camp and ran a 4.3 or 4.4 timed 40-yard dash. He's a change of pace guy. That's a term I'd use to consider him as a guy who's going to come in and not be an every-down, between-the-tackles back yet, but he's a guy who we're going to find ways to get him the ball in vertical running lanes. He will be one of the fastest guys on our team."
