Table inside Article
Balanced skill set as a whole. Knows how to run with control and balance while also being powerful in pass protection. Able to get out of trouble with clean footwork and a lateral quickness in traffic. Brings a high ceiling as a pass catcher as well. A few times you’ll see him get in trouble early because of his lack of instincts and work out of it. Struggles to shoot the gap or find a hole and relies on athleticism to escape. Lacks separation after initial contact.

OVERVIEW: Lloyd began his college career with South Carolina before making the jump to the West Coast and USC. He showed improvement in each collegiate season and production in all three as well. However, he was never really the featured piece in the backfield, sharing carries at both schools, which limited his overall numbers. He'll have to prove to a team early that he's ready to carry the load as a well-rounded back. He has the skill set to do that, but enters the league without the skins on the wall to show it.
