Browns selected Towson RB Terrance West with the No. 94 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

West (5-foot-9 1/4, 225) was an extremely decorated D-IAA runner, earning Offensive Player of the Year in both the Colonial Athletic Association and all of FCS as a senior. He piled up 802 career carries for 4,849 yards (6.05 YPC) and 84 touchdowns, catching 36 passes. West boosted his stock with a 4.54 forty at the Combine and 10-foot broad jump. He's not a quick-twitch short-area mover, but West's college tape is as good as an running back in this class, with power to beat first contact and Alfred Morris-like jump cuts in the open field. He has enough natural run talent and versatility to become an NFL feature back. He has a strong chance at earning No. 2 duties behind Ben Tate.

An anonymous scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Towson RB Terrance West "doesn't take coaching."

"You might as well not even waste your time," the scout said. West sold shoes in Baltimore upon his high school graduation but caught a pair of buses to try out at nearby Towson. "He made it that way," another scout said. "He has a little bit of an edge. He's a real street kid. But the guy has some hunger and football's important to him." The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder is a favorite sleeper of more than one analyst due to his intriguing combo of size and speed (and, we suppose, productivity; 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season). "Dominated I-AA football," a third scout said. "He's not a blazer but he's a 4.5 guy. He's a yoked-up 225. Good feet. Knows how to play. Good hands. For a guy that was the back of I-AA football, pretty good pass pro guy. He's been the king of his level and school." West finished as the No. 6 RB prospect in the newspaper's poll of NFL scouts.

Towson RB Terrance West visited the Bills on Thursday.

Out of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits, the Bills brought in at least six RBs. It appears as though they're interested in adding another dimension to what should be a heavy ground attack in 2014, and West offers all sorts of intrigue. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder looks like a bowling ball but deploys a pinball style, keeping his feet moving after contact and using 4.5 speed to find daylight. The combo was good for 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season against inferior competition.

Towson RB Terrance West should "get mentioned among Carlos Hyde, Bishop Sankey and the other top backs in this year's draft," according to NFL.com's Charles Davis.

Davis is presumably speaking to the public, here, as many experts have been espousing West's virtues for months now. "He has the tools to be an effective workhorse in the NFL," Davis wrote. West is a one-cut, downhill runner who flashes good vision and power, which was apparent as he slapped down 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder ran an impressive 4.54 second 40-yard dash in Indy.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports Towson RB Terrance West worked out for the Arizona Cardinals and had an official visit with the Tennessee Titans.

Ken Whisenhunt is desperately looking to improve his running attack and the Titans are now left with Shonn Greene as the only capable starter, after releasing Chris Johnson. The Titans could strike early in the draft for a RB, but they could also look in the later rounds to draft a prospect like West. The Cardinals are also in need of bringing quality depth at the running back position, with Andre Ellington slated as their starter. The 5'9, 225 pound West could easily bring a perfect blend of speed and power to either teams' backfield. In only three seasons at Towson, West put up 4,854 rushing yards and 84 touchdowns. West is a talented back who could be a late second to early third day pick.

Scouts or coaches from "at least" 22 NFL organizations attended Towson RB Terrance West's pro day Monday.

They took in West's position drills, but he elected not to do any tests and stood on his combine numbers. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder ran an impressive 4.54 second 40-yard dash time in Indy. He's powerful, fast and fluid, which was apparent as he slapped down 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season. West didn't have many chances to show his hands and route running ability at Towson, but evaluators reportedly walked away impressed with both areas. "The kid has great hands -- I tell all the teams that," Towson coach Rob Ambrose said. "He can definitely catch the ball out of the backfield."
