  • He's a bendy, rhythmic runner who sees and traverses the interior run lanes like he built the maze.
  • He creates additional yardage with a blend of elusiveness, power and a willful desire to maximize each run.
  • Versatility with starting background at receiver and running back.
  • Loose hips and wide base allow sharp cuts and change of direction.
  • Glides with consistent pace and processing to find his pathways.
  • Long strides help him get to the corner on outside runs ahead of pursuit.
  • Spin moves, jump cuts and contact balance create a high number of yards after contact.
  • Capable kick returner and cover man on special teams.
  • His ability to handle gadget runs and threaten linebackers out of the backfield could get him on the field early on.
  • Tracy will be an older rookie, but his versatility and burgeoning talent as a complementary runner should open evaluators' eyes to what he could become as a pro.
