Victor Ike

RB | (5-9, 200, 4.45) | Southern University
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: High school sprinter who finished third in the state in 5A 100 meters. Carried 68 times for 274 yards with five touchdowns and caught five passes for 110 yards and one touchdown at Texas despite missing three-plus games with a hamstring injury as redshirt freshman in 1999. Carried 36-156-4, caught 2-51-1 and returned 20 kickoffs 495 yards in 2000 and returned a kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown in Texas' bowl game vs. Oregon. Started the first two games and the Holiday Bowl vs. Washington in '01. Carried 41-165-2, caught 10-77-0 and returned 13 kicks for 399 yards. Transfered to Southern University (Division 1-AA) in '02 and was immediately eligible to play. Appeared in seven games in '02, rushing 35-75-0 and catching 5-70-0.

Positives: Smooth, fast runner who can catch the ball and return. Can return kicks, which is probably his strong suit.

Negatives: Durability and character have been issues according to past coaches. Not a great worker and relies on athleticism too much.

Summary: Could get a chance as a kick returner and special-teams contributor.
