Paul James

School: Rutgers
Position: RB
Positive: Started 11 games last season finishing with 544 yards and 5 TDs. Career-best 881 yards and 9 TDs came during his sophomore season. Has an injury history which includes a torn ACL which limited him to 4 games as a junior. Nice sized ball carrier who runs North/South. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and squeezes through the small openings of the offensive line. Displays the agility necessary to turn the corner, has a burst which he turns on in a single step and plays with a large degree of quickness. Strong, breaks tackles and picks up yardage off initial contact. Runs low to the ground, displays short area quickness and the ability to slide through the running lanes. Effectively picks up blocking assignments. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield. Quickly gets into routes and extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame.
Negative: Must improve his overall blocking. One speed ball carrier that cannot run to daylight. Medical red flags may be a concern.
Analysis: James was a solid all-around ball carrier who is effective in all aspects but did not stand out in any single area of the game. He has the ability to make a roster as a situational back if his medicals pan out.
