Scouting Report
Helu improved in each of his four seasons at Nebraska, finishing his senior year with career bests of 1,245 rushing yards, 6.6 yards per carry and 11 touchdowns on the ground. He ended his run with the Cornhuskers as their No. 4 all-time rusher with 3,404 yards and had the best performance ever by a Nebraska running back in a 31-17 win over Missouri on Oct. 30. Helu rushed for 307 yards to better the previous school record of 294 set by Calvin Jones in 1991, and he tied a career high with three rushing scores. In his sophomore and junior seasons, Helu proved to be a valuable pass catcher out of the backfield with a combined 44 receptions for 415 yards. As a senior, though, he caught just five passes for 46 yards. Helu possesses the physical tools to succeed in the NFL, and his performance at the combine may have helped him move up from his projected late-round selection. Among running backs, Helu finished first in the 20-yard shuttle (4.01 seconds) and 60-yard shuttle (11.07 seconds), second in the three-cone drill (6.67 seconds), sixth in the 40-yard dash (4.42 seconds), tied for eighth in the vertical jump (36.5 inches) and was 10th in the broad jump (9 feet, 11 inches).
