This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.
Lennon Creer, Louisiana Tech
Height: 6'0, Weight: 222 pounds
Strengths: Creer has a good burst through traffic between the tackles. Nice size for a running back. More elusive in the open field than his size would suggest. Solid receiver on check downs. Above-average as a pass blocker.
Weaknesses: Isn’t overly fast and won’t break many big runs. Doesn't run with good pad level, which negates his natural strength. Struggles to break tackles and needs to be a tougher runner. Sat out 2009 season after transferring from Tennessee.
