2005 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DARREN SPROLES: Kansas State, 5056 188 4.48. Three-year starter. A very talented running back who has all the tools except size. Career rushing leader who can run, catch and return. Has natural running instincts with rare quickness and good vision. Very fast, shifty and makes you miss. Runs with vision, both inside and out, and has the instinct to set up blocks. Explosive lateral quickness and foot speed to hop cut in the hole. Bounces off tacklers and get to the perimeter. Will lower his shoulder and fight for yardage. Elusive jitterbug on screen passes and draws. Upfield burst. Willing, but limited as a blocker. Prospect as a returner and third-down back. Low center of gravity. Unique talents warrant fourth/fifth round pick.
