NFL.com review of California RB Daniel Lasco (6-0, 209 LBs):

Coming off of a team MVP and honorable mention All-Pac-12 campaign in 2014 (1,115 rush yards, 12 touchdowns; 33-356 receiving), Lasco looked for a big senior year to finish off his career. Unfortunately, he couldn't stay healthy in 2015, playing in nine games due to hip and ankle injuries (three starts; 65-331 rushing, three TD; 4-24 receiving). Scouts already wondered if Lasco would stay healthy with a 6-1, 205-pound build, but he's not contact-shy. In fact, he led the team with 12 special teams tackles as a true freshman in addition to carrying the ball six times for 109 and a score.
