Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-MAC in 2015, rushing for 1,285 yards and 18 touchdowns on a team-high 283 carries. Was named Second Team All-MAC in 2016 after racking up 182 carries for 885 yards and eight touchdowns. Had 44 career receptions for 368 yards and three scores.
Pos: 
Productive college ball carrier best running downhill. Runs hard on the inside, resilient and keeps his feet moving on contact. Powerful, breaks tackles and carries defenders for extra yardage. Does not go down without a fight, gives effort blocking and gets results. Displays vision, waits for blocks to develop then picks or chooses his spots on the inside. Grinds it out, falls forward when tackled and picks up extra yardage. Displays a burst through the hole.
Neg: 
Not a creative ball carrier that’s going to make defenders miss or avoid piles. Lacks the speed to turn the corner. Average pass catcher out of the backfield.
Analysis: 
Bouagnon is solidly build and a potential short yardage back for the next level.
