2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Chris Polk, RB, Washington
Polk needs to display more decisiveness when hitting the hole, and with that, needs to explode through the line in order to take what the defense has given him. One big problem is that he is a very upright runner and opens up his body to big hits at the second level. Although he is well-built through his frame, Polk could be even better if he ran with a better pad level.
He doesn't have the agility to burst to the outside and doesn't display the hands to be on the field on third downs. A more than willing pass protector who will need to work on his blocking techniques. Polk will likely find his role as a No. 2 back who comes in on third downs and can be trusted to not fumble the ball away.
