Mikel Leshoure vs. Ohio State


Mikel Leshoure

1st - 0:52 - Nice elusiveness and juke to make safety miss in backfield

3rd - 2:45 - Shows ability to plant and explode

4th - 8:27 - Nice traffic run ... found a narrow running lane and maximized carry ... good job slipping in gap and solid vision

4th - 7:26 - stretch run ... hurdles to avoid defender on ground ... very nice ball security and holds tightly to vest ... solid speed in cutting up field ... nice power and seems to enjoy contact at end of run - lowered shoulder into safety

4th - 5:54 - Legs seemed to go dead on contact of arm tackle here ... unimpressive run - yards left on field

Summary: This was a difficult game to evaluate. First, Illinois runs a horizonal zone-read scheme and it's nothing like Leshoure will play with in the NFL as it's more of a downhill style. Secondly, he was often running into a wall of Ohio State defenders and his OL didn't give him much of a chance.

Leshoure was a little inconsistent in this game; at times I wanted to see more competitiveness, but I'm keeping an open mind and I want to see more tape because he really had limited opportunities vs. OSU.
