Pos: 
Small, quick ball carrier who runs with a tough style. Displays tremendous quickness, has a burst and fires through running lanes. Gets a lot of momentum going up the field and falls forward when tackled. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, picks his way through the trash and constantly runs north/south. Uses blocks very well and finds the open creases on the field. Gives effort with as a blocker.
Neg: 
Lacks size and is easily brought down at the point by a single defender. Doesn’t pick up much yardage off contact. Lacks the agility and speed necessary to turn the perimeter.
Analysis: 
Higdon was a terrific ball carrier at the college level but lacks size despite playing a power style of football. He needs to improve his pass catching but could be a situational running back who can spell a starter on occasion.
