Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA in each of those two seasons. Lost his starting job midway through his senior year and rushed 119 times for 532 yards and three touchdowns despite missing two games due to an ankle injury. Led Louisiana Tech in rushing with 1,074 yards and nine TDs on 191 carries and caught 42 passes for 340 yards and four scores in 2016. Carried 141 times for 524 yards and five touchdowns during his first two seasons with the Bulldogs.
Pos: 
Strong, resilient running back coming off a disappointing season. Displays vision, finds running lanes and displays burst through the hole. Resilient, bounces off defenders and keeps plays alive. Strong, picks up difficult yardage and keeps his feet moving. Displays solid blocking vision and works to get a pad on defenders. Decent pass catcher out of the backfield.
Neg: 
Straight-ahead runner who cannot create yardage or make defenders miss. One-speed ball carrier.
Analysis: 
Scouts graded Craft as a potential late-round pick off his junior season, but he failed to respond last year. He has the size and strength to be a short-yardage ball carrier and comes equipped with solid pass-catching skills.
