Scouting Report on Hayes Pullard

On the Hoof: Thick neck, muscular athlete that looks a bit like a professional wrestler or a heavyweight boxer with very little body fat. He is built a bit like Florida State star linebacker Nigel Bradham.
Needs improvement: He needs to improve on his pass coverage skills as a linebacker. He is a tad stiff in the hips and more flexibility will surely help. As a running back, must make sure he runs with forward body lean, only exposing his shoulder pads and high knee kick. Tall backs can take a beating.
Most impressive: Pullard is a very explosive player that runs through the ball carrier and excels at blitzing up the middle, using his speed and strength to go unblocked. He also has the potential to be a big tailback, as he is a load to bring down, and he hurts defenders every time they try to tackle him.
Conclusion: He truly has the potential to play either side of the ball at the next level. Wherever he goes, the position he can help that team the most will be the one that he plays early on in his career. He might be best suited as the big back that just flat-out wears the defense out as the game wears on with physical intimidation.
