Overview:

Jacquizz Rodgers was a superstar at Oregon State who had some dazzling plays. He’s a very shifty runner and is more quick than fast. He’s capable between the tackles and has great vision and patience. His size is a question mark but he’s also received a ton of touches in college which could have worn him out for the NFL. He also lacks great speed and has trouble breaking long runs despite getting into the open field a lot. He’ll probably be relegated to a 3rd down back or a #2 but he can be very successful in that role.
