—Ballage is a "first off the bus" kind of guy who is an uber-athlete at the position.
—He has a toolset that is perfect for the NFL with power, speed, hands and versatility as a route-runner.
—Had moments of huge production as a runner, receiver and returner. He can play multiple spots.
—Teams that want a back who can catch will like Ballage. He has natural hands and is a smooth route-runner.
—Ballage can run with power and balance while bringing burst to his game. His good runs make your jaw drop and convince you he could be a starting NFL running back.
—Ballage's lack of vision is a major concern. If a hole isn't clearly there for the taking, he'll struggle.
—Arizona State rarely featured him, and he's made a name for himself off one game—an eight-TD performance against Texas Tech in 2016.
—Only had two 100-yard rushing games in the last two seasons and was at times shut down by average Pac-12 defenses.
—Teams should be concerned with Ballage's lack of production in 2017. His numbers and play took a major dip.
—Ballage looks the part, but his tape was disappointing and left us wanting more from his awesome skill sets.
Ballage is either fool's gold or a potential steal. He'll spark many debates about traits versus production in scouting rooms. There is very little wear and tear on his frame and he is a great athlete, but a lack of impact on Saturdays will give teams pause.
