Mikell Simpson

School: Virginia
Position: RB
Bio: Former receiver who was Virginia's starting halfback last season, totaling 85/386/5 on the ground, while adding 27/236/1 as a pass catcher. Played in nine games as a junior before being sidelined with a shoulder injury and finished with 87/262/3 on the ground. Split time between receiver and running back as a sophomore, posting 113/570/8 on the ground with 43/102/2 as a pass catcher.
Positive: Adequately sized ball-carrier with no single outstanding skill to his game. Finds the cutback lanes, shows the agility to turn the corner and quickly gets through the hole. Keeps his feet moving on contact. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Negative: Not an elusive or creative runner. Very indecisive, displays limited toughness in his game and lacks the speed to beat defenders into the open field.
Analysis: Simpson has done well in his role at Virginia, yet he has no defined NFL position at this point. Lacks the size and skill to be a full-time ball-carrier and possesses just marginal speed for receiver. He offers possibilities as a third-down back if he produces on special teams this summer.
