D.J. Harper

School: Boise State
Position: RB
Bio: Boise State's primary ballcarrier last season, totaling career ground numbers of 220 carries/1137 yards/15 TDs while adding 23 receptions/163 yards/1 TD as a receiver. Junior rushing totals included 115/557/9. Missed the 2009 and 2010 seasons with consecutive knee injuries.
Positive: Elusive ballcarrier with a well-rounded game. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and effectively follows them. Sets defenders up then makes them miss, finding the cutback lanes. Can avoid defenders and shows the ability to create yardage. Possesses the speed necessary to beat defenders into the open field. Runs with excellent balance and gets lost behind blockers. Sifts through the trash on the inside and consistently finds the open lanes. Solid receiver who makes receptions then quickly turns up the field to pick up positive yardage.
Negative: Not a strong back who breaks tackles or picks up yardage off initial contact. Has suffered a pair of serious knee injuries.
Analysis: After missing two consecutive seasons with knee injuries, Harper improved in all areas of the running back position as a senior. If healthy and able to stay on the field, he offers possibilities as a third-down back/situational runner.
