Bio: 
First-year starter who earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors and led West Virginia with 1,061 rushing yards on 190 carries while tying for the team lead with seven rushing touchdowns in 2017. Named Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year and rushed for a team-high 1,184 yards on 163 carries, scoring four TDs. Transferred from junior college before the 2016 season.
Pos: 
Somewhat creative ball carrier with the ability to improvise. Quick in a small area, plays with excellent vision and helps the quarterback sell ball fakes. Finds cutback lanes, quickly gets through them and strings several moves together over a single run. Keeps his feet moving, works to pick up positive yardage and follows blocks everywhere on the field.
Neg: 
Possesses just a short burst and lacks perimeter speed. Must pick up his blocking in all areas.
Analysis: 
Crawford was solid at the college level but lacks any discernible skill that sets him apart. He offers possibilities as a situational runner but he must improve his blocking and pick up the productivity as a pass catcher.
