His lack of experience against top level college talent is balanced nicely by the pure cute factor he brings to the field, and his insanely fast reflexes.

There are also eligibility and work ethic concerns, that can be seen very clearly in the above posted video.

Hood is excited about the opportunity to play for his hometown team after spending his college days at North Carolina.The Panthers have four running backs expected to hit free agency in March: Cameron Artis-Payne, Kenjon Barner, Travaris Cadet and Fozzy Whittaker. Unless they sign one of those four pending free agents or scour the market for a veteran looking for a cheap one-year ‘prove it’ deal, Hood will likely compete with Reggie Bonnafon—who spent the 2018 season on the practice squad—for the role of Christian McCaffrey’s backup during training camp.
