Bio: 
Two-year starter named Third Team All-ACC in 2016, rushing for 858 yards and eight touchdowns on 145 carries. Ranked third in the ACC with 1,463 rushing yards and second with 17 rushing touchdowns as a sophomore in 2015. Named Academic All-ACC as both a freshman and a sophomore.
Pos: 
Strong interior ball carrier best running downhill. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field, breaks tackles and falls forward for extra yardage. Effectively follows blocks, displays a burst through the hole and keeps his feet moving. Works runs and gives effort.
Neg: 
Runs with an upright style. Lacks speed and quickness around the corner. Poor pass catcher who has passes bouncing off his chest. Blows blocking assignments which results in the quarterback getting annihilated.
Analysis: 
Hood made the premature decision to enter the draft and is almost solely a one-dimensional downhill ball carrier.
