Running Backs Coach
Marcus Arroyo:

"He's a bigger back. He's 6'1" and 210 pounds and he's got explosive speed. He's really fast and he's strong. He's got really good ball skills out of the backfield for being a bigger guy. He's a slasher and he's not really going to make you miss, but he's a big and strong back who has got some really good open-field speed."
