Overview:

Hood was highly productive at North Carolina, where he played in 34 career game, with 430 carries, for 2580 rushing yards, and 40 rushing touchdowns. He has good size, he has good speed, he also has good vision, and is a tough runner. He is also hard to take down, he breaks tackles with ease, is a dynamic play maker, and he just bulldozes his way though the defensive line. He does get stuffed at times, and he is not known as a pass catching back. With that said, I view Hood as a day 3 pick, likely somewhere in the 4th to 5th round range when it is all said and done.
