2011 RB Draft Class Top-5, The Notes

6 of 8

DeMarco Murray, OK

  • very aggressive runner
  • throws body into defender
  • will lower shoulders into head
  • best acceleration is from mid-gear to top-gear
  • good hands, spread system used that
  • reminds me of Feliz Jones, Cowboys
  • goes wide when changing east to west
  • waits on ball before looking at defender on pass play
  • slows down well, not great, for direction change
  • initiates contact at times but not a powerful runner
