|Draft Prediction:||Third Round|
2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
James has good speed. He is more quick than fast and shows some seriously explosive elusiveness. He will get caught from behind on long runs. Offenses will need to get him the ball out in space since he doesn't do much to break free from tackles. He has great hands and can quickly turn upfield with the ball in his hands. James sometimes looks for the home run and needs to mature in the sense that he can't break every single play. James rarely churns his legs to get those small extra yards after contact.
There are some injury concerns with knee problems over the last two seasons. There are no structural knee concerns. He was also arrested on a domestic violence charge in 2010. James would make a great compliment back that will shine brightest on passing downs. He also has some limited experience on kick and punt returns.
