Jahvid Best: No. 4, RB, 5-10, 195
An explosive stop-and-start athlete, Best has a great first step and gets up to top-end speed instantly out of his break. Is very agile and shifty in the open field and consistently shows the ability to make the first man miss. Display a sudden jump-cut and quickly hits the cutback lane, attacking up field. Possesses a rare second gear and has the ability to separate from nearly anyone once he reaches the secondary. Runs with a low pad level and good balance. Consequently, he doesn't absorb many big hits to his frame.
Lacks ideal power at the line of scrimmage and is tripped up too easily by arm tackles. But his natural feel for the game and instincts at the line of scrimmage make him a dynamic runner. A coordinated receiver out of the backfield, Best is a tough blocker who has the body control to cut down defenders on contact. Overall, he's as explosive and sudden as you can get. I love his natural running instincts and toughness for a back his size. He looks like a big-play threat and true playmaker at the next level.
