Rex Burkhead, RB, Nebraska

University of Nebraska Huskers running back Rex Burkhead has legit athleticism which he put on display at the NFL Combine. Should be a great value selection in the later rounds. Great change of direction. Lacks ideal power and must improve his lower half strength. Excellent lateral movements. Should be able to contribute on third down with good hands and a willingness to block. Pass protection needs improvement. Hard runner. Balance seems average at best. Must churn legs and fall forward more consistently. High character player, fan favorite.
