Notes:
Rushed for 396 yards and six TDs as a freshman in 2004, serving as a key reserve tailback for Nebraska...Saw less time on the field in 2005, serving behind Nebraska standout Cory Ross...Burst on the scene in 2006, emerging as the top option for Bill Callahan's offense on the ground...Averaged 5.3 yards per carry as a junior, amassing 989 yards and eight TDs this past season...Earned All-Big 12 First-Team honors as a junior and for his three-year career, he rushed for 1,431 yards to rank 35th all-time in school history...Has NFL size and above-average athleticism...Not a home-run hitter that is a threat to go the distance anytime he touched the ball, but is certainly capable of grinding out yards and moving the chains...Could have used another year in the college ranks to get more reps and improve his draft stock.
