2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Vick Ballard, RB, Mississippi State
The Pascagoula, MS native stands at 5'11'' and 220 pounds. He generally runs in the 4.5s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.47 from that distance. Ballard can break tackles simply by running through defenders, but he struggles to change direction and elude tacklers. He isn't overly explosive off the ball, so it takes him a decent amount of time to reach top speed. Ballard probably won't ever be a featured running back at the next level, but he will provide valuable depth and could be a serious factor in red-zone situations. Look for him to go off the board in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
