Overview:

Linwood was highly productive at Baylor, where he was a workhorse back, with 713 carries, for 4213 rushing yards, and a whopping 38 rushing touchdowns. He has great speed, he has good vision, he is a tough runner, also he is an explosive back, and he has a nice quick burst off the line of scrimmage. He also makes defenders miss with ease, he breaks tackles with ease, and he fights for extra yards. He is also a very explosive play maker. He is however, very undersized, he is also not the best blocking back, he tends to get stuffed at times, and is not known as a pass catching back. With that said, Linwood is at best a late round pick, but more than likely he will end up going undrafted.
