ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that he "love[s] the way" Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah "plays the game."
"He's only 5-foot-9 and 205 pounds, but he is an aggressive runner between the tackles who fights for extra yardage after initial contact, and he's fearless in taking on bigger defenders in pass protection," McShay wrote. "He doesn't project as a workhorse back in the NFL due to his size, and he's had ball-security issues in college, but he plays a lot bigger than his frame indicates; he just runs angry, as though he's on a mission." Abdullah's is tiny (5-foot-8 5/8), has small hands (8 5/8 inches) and doesn't have sprinter speed (4.60 seconds), but he is incredibly athletic and shifty. "The way he works in and out of creases, exploiting his exceptional quickness to make defenders miss, really stands out," wrote McShay. "Lastly, you won't find many players with better football character. You want this guy in your locker room."
