Lloyd is an explosive play maker with a nice mix of burst, quickness and long speed. Decent vision and patience, when he sees a hole Lloyd appears to be shot out of a cannon. In the open field, Lloyd is extremely tough to bring down due to his lateral quickness and cuts on a dime, it is easy to see why he is one of the most elusive running backs in the class (177.0 elusive rating per PFF). While he does not have the stats to show how good of a pass catcher he is (34 rec in 3 years), on film, Lloyd has shown extremely capable hands and is a threat out of the backfield as a pass catcher.


One of the main issues for Marshawn Lloyd is that he has never been a lead back during his time in college (did miss his freshman year with an ACL tear). Ball security is something that will need to be worked on immediately at the next level, 8 fumbles in 3 years on only 360 carries. While he has decent vision, it can be inconsistent at times due to his want to bounce it outside instead of taking the open lanes.


Marshawn Llyod was a big winner during his week down at the Senior Bowl as he was making all sorts of plays in 1 on 1’s and 11 on 11’s, it was easy to see as to why Lloyd was named the top  running back for the National team. With the combine coming up, Lloyd should shine in all the drills especially the cone drills and continue to raise his stock.  Lloyd has all the tools and an NFL frame to be a dangerous play maker at the NFL level if he can clean up the ball security issues that have plagued him throughout college.
