Prospect RB West all about the cuts

Towson RB Terrance West, who is at One Bills Drive on a pre-draft visit today (Thursday), along with Alabama LB C.J. Mosley, might not be an elite athlete on the stopwatch, but at 5’9″ and 223 pounds he’s capable of being a capable pounder at the NFL level.

West is not going to out run defenders and bust off 60-yard scoring runs, but he will bury his head into a defender’s chest and drive him back for an extra five yards.

The thickly built back isn’t just a plow ahead runner. He has some shiftiness to his game. In fact his ability to jab step and cut or jump cut leaves most defenders behind allowing him to gain extra yardage. Here’s some video confirming that ability.
