Trindon Holliday Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||5'5 - 164 lbs.|
2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Trindon Holliday, WR, LSU
By all accounts--and all stopwatches--Holliday is the fastest man ever to play college football. The 5'5' speed demon consistently runs under 4.30 in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.20. Obviously even better at track than he is at football, Holliday is the reigning NCAA champion in the 100-meter dash, as he ran a 10.00 in the finals of the 2009 NCAA Outdoor meet. He also owns a national title in the 4x100 relay (2008) and he even reached the semifinals of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials. Not surprisingly, Holliday is a return specialist on the football field. He averaged 32.4 yards on five kick returns as a freshman in 2006, and he added 498 yards and a touchdown on 19 kick returns in 2007. Holliday amassed 609 yards--the second most in a season in LSU history--on 27 kick returns as a junior. Ten games into his senior campaign, he had taken 15 kick returns for 346 yards, good for a 23. 1 average. Most dangerous as a return man, Holliday also sees time at running back for the Tigers. His most productive season rushing the football came as a sophomore, when he carried 53 times for 364 yards (a stellar 6.9 average) and two touchdowns. With Charles Scott now doing most of the work in LSU's backfield, Holliday's touches--at least on offense--have diminished in recent seasons. After all, Holliday can take a beating, standing at just 5'5' and 164 pounds. He is too valuable on special teams to risk throwing him out there for more than a few offensive plays per game. Still, Holliday is an obvious home-run threat every time he touches the ball. He will have his fair share of doubters if he attempts to play at the next level, but his speed alone gives him great potential. Holliday is worth a draft pick on Day 2 simply as a return man; he's just that fast.
