On the Hoof: May be the best put-together back in the country. Redd has a muscular build similar to Texas A&M freshman Christine Michael.
Needs Improvement: Needs to work on making the tough catches by having his hands positioned properly. He has a tendency to have to big a gap between his hands.
Most Impressive: He is built to do damage to linebackers and the secondary in the second half. Redd is fast and explosive and practices every rep like it is a real game. He is also a smart player with great leadership skills and is determined to be great.
Conclusion: There was some doubt early on whether he was a running back or a cornerback, but he has proven on more than one occasion that he can be an impact freshman with the ball in his hands. Expect him to have a stellar college career and to eventually become a NFL football player.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
