Breida was highly productive at Georgia Southern, where he had 543 carries, for 3754 rushing yards, and 37 rushing touchdowns. He has good speed, he also had good vision, he has an explosive burst off the line of scrimmage, and he is an explosive play maker. He also breaks tackles with ease, he makes defenders miss, he runs defenders over despite his small size frame, and he makes something out of nothing. He is very undersized, both in the height, and weight departments, he did not play in a pro style offense, and is not a pass catching back. With that said, I view Breida as a late round pick at best, but more than likely he will end uo going undrafted.
