Scouting Report – Offensive

Maverick has the strength to pound between the tackles and the perimeter speed to turn the corner and go the distance. He possesses great size: a compact, thick frame and excellent upper- and lower-body strength. The physical tools to develop into a durable, high-carry college back who can wear down a defense. He’s a violent runner with great slashing, one-cut-and-go ability. Explodes downhill. Can decisively hit the small cutback crease without gearing down and losing much power through the hole. Makes himself small when needed. Squares up his shoulder pads quickly and is tough to bring down when he breaks through the seam with his great burst, low center of gravity and body tilt. Runs through most high arm tackles with his powerful upper body and nonstop leg drive. He’s a pile-mover when he lowers his shoulders. Has the rare ability to hurt a defense inside, in space and on the perimeter. Shows smooth hips for a bigger back when eluding defenders and great jump-cut ability. Has great top-end speed through the second level and flashes a strong stiff-arm when a defender has the angle. Maverick shows the extra gear to separate after turning the corner. Possesses receiving skills and has naturally good hands. Maverick can punish defenders in-line and after contact or dust them using his outside speed and quickness. He should be one of the more sought-after backs in the country.

Scouting Report – Defense

Maverick flashes attributes similar to those shown by the elite linebackers who emerged from South Florida in 2008. He has great size, has a rangy, tapered body and will be able to add bulk without losing much quickness. Generates great initial speed and short-area burst. Plays big, showing power and force at the point of attack. He’s tough and has a great nose for the ball. Has fast-twitch athleticism and gets quick jumps. Excels at attacking downhill, and shows good change-of-direction quickness and fluidity sifting through traffic. Flashes good range and sideline-to-sideline speed. Pursues at proper angles and avoids trash effectively. Can anticipate the snap, and his rare closing burst and relentlessness make him an excellent blitzer. Good ball and awareness skills in coverage. He’s explosive in space and often delivers jaw-dropping hits. Mav is a consistent tackler who wraps his head around the ball carrier and bring his hips through tackles. His strength is evident when he goes to tackle bigger backs or shed uncovered linemen on cutoff blocks. Maverick’s outstanding special teams potential only enhances his upside.
