Foreman may have only played in 28 career games at Texas, but he was a workhorse for them, with 431 rushes, over 2780 rushing yards, along with 20 rushing touchdowns. He fights for every yard, he has a quick, and explosive burst off the line of scrimmage. He is a tough back, has good vision, and is an explosive playmaker. He also breaks tackles with ease, and makes defenders miss with ease. He also has good size, and he has speed. He does get stuffed at times, and is not known as a pass catching back. With that said, Foreman has the skill set to be a 1st round pick, it just depends on how many RB needy teams there are with a 1st round pick, so more than likely, Foreman will be a day 2 pick, somewhere in the 2nd round.
