Overview:

Hines finished his career at N.C. State, where he played in 38 career games, had 258 rushes, for 1399 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns, along with 90 receptions, for 933 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. He was a workhorse back, he has great speed, he has good vision, and is a tough runner. He is also a good pass catching back, he finds the holes and attacks them, and he has a great explosive burst off the line of scrimmage. He is a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He also makes defenders miss, he breaks tackles, and is tough to bring down. He also is an offensive play maker, and a dynamic play maker. He also can makes something out of nothing, and he fights for every yard, and extra yards. On the other hand, he is on the smaller side, he does get stuffed quite a but, and he could be seen a 1-year wonder, as 12 of his 13 career rushing touchdowns came during the 2017 season. With that said, I view Hines as a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
