2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Chris Wells Profile

Strengths: Outstanding size with great bulk in upper and lower bodies ... Dominantly powerful ... Shakes off the first hit in the open field like it's nothing ... Textbook stiff arm ... Nice second gear ... A game-breaker despite being a bigger back ... Solid vision to cut back into running lanes ... Instinctive runner ... Has nice speed turning the corner ... Keeps shoulders square to the line of scrimmage in approach ... Extremely productive back and has a lot of upside ... Durable ... Hasn't been overworked for multiple seasons.

Weaknesses: Very questionable hands out of the backfield ... Doesn't hit the hole very hard and running lanes do close on him sometimes because of this ... Doesn't put much effort into pass protection and lacks awareness in this area.

Summary: Beanie Wells is kind of back who can carry a franchise ... He's an elite talent - very near to the same grade I gave Adrian Peterson ... Dominant player who could fall a bit in the NFL Draft because the demand for running backs in the NFL is extremely low.

Player Comparison: Bo Jackson. Beanie is very similar to Bo from a size and athletic standpoint. Both were extremely powerful runners who punished opponents. I know this is a bit of a stretch, but it's hard to find players to compare Wells to from a size, speed, and style standpoint at his position. It's simply rare.
