Scouting Report: (7/15/2019) Jo’Quavious Marks is an adequate sized running back with a tightly-wound, quick-twitch frame that allows him to play bigger. He is quick and sudden but also faster than his 40-time would indicate.
Jo’Quavious has excellent vision and runs with his eyes. He is a very instinctive runner with a natural feel for the cutback. He runs with patience and lets blocks develop and is capable of getting through tight closing seams. He is shifty with a wiggle in tight spaces and is difficult to line up for a direct hit. He is best sticking his foot in the ground and getting upfield where he shows a good acceleration in the second level.
Jo’Quavious is not a pile pusher, but he is a tough, scrappy runner who doesn’t go down easily. He twists and churns on contact and will pop out of arm wraps and make quality yards after contact. Despite not being a power back, he has succeeded in the red zone because he runs with a lower base and possesses an excellent balance.
Jo’Quavious is a running back prospect who can continue to rise up our rankings. He is a very natural runner who finds the cutback lanes and displays a feel for reading flow and linebacker angles. He will need to add size to hold up as an every-down back on the collegiate level. If he can gain muscle without losing speed, his hands out of the backfield and big-play ability should translate well at the next level.
