A Second-Team All-SEC choice by the AP and coaches in 2009....Broke through asa senior, rushing for 1,345 yards, the fourth highest total in Tennessee history...Career was slowed by injuries, including a torn ACL (2005), ankle injury (2007) and a stress fracture (2008)...Has already undergone three knee surgeries...Possesses solid height and bulk...Strong and tough to tackle...Keeps feet moving, helping push the pile...Terrific balance and vision...Decent blocker...Lacks breakaway speed...Durability is an obvious concern.
