Pos: 
Versatile skill player who can be used as a pass catcher and a running back. Solid pass catcher who effectively times receptions and gets vertical to make some incredible plays. Exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the reception, tracks the pass in the air and consistently extends his hands to make the reception away from his frame. Displays the speed and agility necessary to turn the corner as a running back. Plays faster than his 40 time. Displays vision and effectively uses blocks.
Neg: 
Loses his focus and will drop easy passes on occasion. Lacks great explosion. Not a fluid cutback runner and gathers into breaks.
Analysis: 
Pollard played second fiddle to Darrell Henderson at Memphis last season, and he heads to the draft with a suppressed draft grade as a result. Pollard possesses the skills to be a third running back at the next level and can produce as a ball carrier and a receiver out of the backfield.
