Sophomore QB leads young offense under new head coach
Prospect Profile: Alex Haynes
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 223 40: 4.51 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter who led the team in rushing every season since his freshman campaign. Totaled 215/854/5 as a senior, even though he was bothered with an ankle sprain most of the year. Also added 18/123 as a receiver.
Positives: Well-built running back with excellent intangibles. Cognizant ball carrier who runs with vision, patience and excellent lean. Displays body control, balance, keeps moving up the field and breaks tackles to pick up extra yardage. Shows a burst as well as first step quickness.
Negatives: Not an elusive ball carrier who creates if nothing is available. Lacks the speed to beat defenders around the corner and cannot run to daylight. Though tough, does not have the strength to move the pile.
Analysis: A consistent back on the college level, Haynes offers solid skill for the next level. Never greatly productive in any single aspect, but could be a change-of-pace ball carrier as a third back in the NFL.
