Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about WENDELL SMALLWOOD: West Virginia, 5104 208 4.45. Junior entry and two-year starter from Wilmington, DE. Bender, weaver type runner out of the air raid spread formation scheme. Has the speed to turn the corner. Uses a stiff arm to ward off low tackling defenders. Has a nice hit and spin move off a defender. Good contact balance. Slippery to tackle. Bounces off quick penetrating linemen in the backfield. Has some quick shake and bake moves in the open field. Good vision to find the inside seam of the defense. Quick to and through the hole. Has a tendency to bounce the ball outside if the running lanes are filled. Can make the first guy miss in the open field. Once in the open field he can outrun pursuit angles. Has good lateral agility and body control. Too small to be effective in pass protection. Willing but gets knocked back. Catches the ball on screens and check down routes. Will contribute on special teams as a kickoff return specialist. Has an off field red flag that needs to be vetted by teams. A third down complementary type back. 2015 stats: 1519 yds, 6.38 ypc, 9 TD, 26 rec, 160 yds, 6.15 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:4/24. Seventh round/PFA.
