Scouting Report: C.J Spiller

November 21, 2008

C.J Spiller, RB, Clemson

Strengths: Fastest Running Back I have ever seen. Maybe faster than Chris Johnson … Has an excellent center of gravity … Provides versatility as a kick and punt returner … Easily breaks tackles … Playmaker … Can work well in a one, two punch … Can catch passes out of the backfield … Explosive out of the backfield.

broncosbarWeaknesses: Might only be successful in a one, two punch … He lacks toughness and strength … Will not work for the extra yards and when he is down, he is down … Will try to make moves that are “not really there” … Needs to bulk up … Durability questions. 

broncosbarOverall: C.J Spiller is the most explosive running back I have seen in ages. My favorite thing about him is his quick thinking and he knows when to make a move, that said sometimes that move will not really be there. The one, two punch thing is a double edged sword and for some teams they will like it and others will hate it. His versatility is also very special. I would look out for C.J Spiller in the very early rounds.
