Pos: 
Super-productive small-school ball carrier with average upside for the next level. Patient, will pick and choose his spots on the inside and has a burst that he turns on in a single step. Keeps his feet moving, displays the ability to break arm tackles and runs with balance and body control. Plays faster than his 40 time and beats defenders into the open field. Resilient, shows good awareness as a receiver and works hard.
Neg: 
Runs with an upright style. Does not time well in the 40 despite his playing speed. Does not catch the ball cleanly out of the backfield.
Analysis: 
Conner was a one-man show at the small-school level and projects as a third-down back, but he needs a lot of work on his overall game before he'll be NFL-ready.
