—Runs hard and fast for a 208-pound back. Lives in the weight room and has an impressive physique and strength profile.
—Downhill strength and mentality; looks to get into his cuts and will punish a tackler if one gets in his path.
—Excellent at breaking tackles when a tackler comes at him without a commitment to bringing him down.
—Has enough lateral agility to shake defenders and get to space.
—Host of issues away from the field: misdemeanor marijuana arrest (2015) and part of a credit card fraud scandal that resulted in season-long suspension (2017).
—Rarely used as a receiver and needs to show improved hands and route-running skills.
—Very little urgency to his game; too patient behind the line of scrimmage and is delayed at seeing and attacking a rushing lane.
—Athletic testing times in agility were abysmal; which is echoed by stiffness and heavy feet on tape. Three-cone (7.37) and short shuttle (4.63) are among the worst times for a running back in years.
—Does not pop off the tape as a speedy, athletic back. More of a big body that runs over tacklers.
Jordan Scarlett has moments on tape that impress, but overall he is not athletic or fast enough to profile as a starting back. He might be able to carve out a rotational role as a short-yardage back.
