2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Omar Cuff, RB, Delaware

Cuff began his career at Delaware as a defensive back. Midway through the season he was moved to running back. Started three games and rushed for 673 yards in 154 carriers for eight TDs. Had a breakthrough sophomore campaign. First Delaware player to lead the team in both rushing and receiving. Rushed for 1,205 yards on 249 attempts for 14 TDs. Made 41 catches for 414 yards and four more TDs. Was named to several FSB All-Teams. Had an injury riddle junior season. Rushed for 541 yards on 124 attempts and scored eight TDs. Bounced back with an impressive senior season in 2007. Rushed for 1,945 yards on 398 carriers and scored 38 TDs. A very athletic player. Quick on his feet. Very fast (4.4-40). Has the ability to take it home every time he touched the ball. Anticipates very well. A pure north-south runner. Very elusive on the open field. Protects the football. Very capable receiver out of the backfield. With more coaching, he can run any pass route. Soft hands. Will extend them to catch ball throw away from him. He runs hard but is not a tackle buster. Has not shown the ability to move the pile. Blocking skills needs improvement. History of injuries. Level of competition is a concern. Not instinctive enough. Probably will struggle at first to assimilate a complex offensive system. Cuff is a very productive collage player. Posses the necessary speed and agility to make an NFL roster. Some scouts are impressed with his measurable (36' vertical leap). His lack of instinct is worrisome. A good Combine interview and performance could elevate his stock. Currently Cuff is a strictly six, seven or even free agent material.
