Strengths: - A compact runner, Bigsby has a rare blend of balance, agility and instincts. - Shows a surprising burst to beat linebackers to the edge. - Can plant his foot in the ground and explode, showing better straight-line speed than expected. - Bigsby finishes runs well and flashes the ability to get small and squeeze through traffic. - He’s patient, letting blocks develop then accelerating. He runs with a good forward lean and consistently falls forward. - Possesses quick feet and straight-line speed but doesn't have the elite burst to be a constant big-play threat. - Improving patience as a runner, following the pulling guards, making good decisions on when and where to cut.

Weaknesses: - Tends to get too upright at times, sacrificing power. - His hands are good, but doesn’t show much feel as a route runner and might not be a guy you flex out wide. - A tall, upright runner. Not a quick-twitch athlete and is forced to gear down too much. - Not very loose throughout his frame; looks tight redirecting. Will dance and leave his feet instead of taking what's available.

Summary: Tank Bigsby is a north/south direct power runner who plays with physicality and toughness. He is a pure instinctual rusher and gap finder who can hit lanes with good burst. Bigsby’s calling card is his contact balance as he proves difficult to bring down due to his strength and physical profile giving him the ability to gain yards after contact. While Bisby isn’t the most elusive or speediest of players he will be extremely productive in a power running scheme that can utilise his traits and get the most out of him
