Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

Is pretty good at most aspects of the game, and offers some potential on Special Teams. Good speed and has a little bit of burst and can outrun defensive backs with average speed.


Weaknesses

Isn’t particularly good at any one aspect, a jack of all trades running back. Could use a lot of work in blocking and needs more reps catching the ball since he was almost never thrown at.


Analysis

A late round type player who might be able to serve as a 3rd running back for some team and contribute on Special Teams for several years.


Experience

Minor played in 42 games and started in 6 for the Wolverines.
