All throughout the day we will be posting live updates from the Hurricanes pro day in Coral Gables. …
Prospect Profile: Vernand Morency
Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 212 40: 4.65 Year: 4Jr
Bio: All-conference selection who became a full-time starter last season, leading the team on the ground with 250/1,454/12. Spent time in the Colorado Rockies farm system before entering OSU. Will be 25 years old by draft day.
Positives: Explosive straight line running back with excellent power. Runs with forward lean, displays a burst of speed and quick through the hole. Breaks the first tackle and carries the pile. Displays top first-step quickness and can switch it on.
Negatives: Does not display top lateral speed and has difficulty if he must immediately change direction. Does not create and has difficulty running east/west. Must improve his blocking techniques. Ran poorly during his Pro-Day workout.
Analysis: A well-sized, explosive ball carrier, Morency possesses top physical skills for the next level. Lacks flexibility and is a ball carrier who needs room to work, yet he should produce for an offense that rotates ball carriers.
