Pos: 
Hard-working ball carrier who is also effective as a pass catcher out of the backfield. Keeps his feet moving, does not go down without a fight and shows strength as a ball carrier. Possesses outstanding vision, follows blocks everywhere on the field and quickly finds running lanes. Drives his shoulders into defenders and falls forward when tackled to pick up difficult yardage.
Neg: 
Short but runs with a bit of an upright style. Lacks the speed necessary to turn the corner and run to daylight.
Analysis: 
Ericksen was a hard-working running back at the college level but comes with marginal size and speed numbers. He seems to have the mentality and quickness to line up as a punt returner, which he must do this summer to have any chance to make a roster.
