2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

Montee Ball continues the tradition of NFL-caliber running backs to come from the University of Wisconsin. The junior was a Doak Walker Award finalist. Although he isn't a dynamic athlete, Ball possesses a well-developed array of talent. He broke the record for most career touchdowns (83) and broke the single-season record with 39 in 2011.

Ball is the type of runner who can make the first man miss or run him over. Shows a great churn in his legs to drive through arm tackles and does well to fall forward for extra yardage. Wisconsin heavily relies on him to make plays and break off runs. He does not possess elite speed -- will likely run a 4.55 to 4.6 40-yard dash.

He benefits greatly from Wisconsin's huge offensive line and the Badgers' offensive system skews his production. He will need to improve in pass protection, mainly because he is rarely asked to pass block. As a receiver out of the backfield, he's still a work in progress and has shown some improvement this season.

Ball's mix of power and vision will be a great addition to a team that needs a difference maker on first and second down. He projects as a second or third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Detroit Lions
Either him or Leveon Bell should end up in a Lions Uniform especially with all their RB problems with Best and Leshoure.
