Listening to what Mayock, Davis and Warner were saying it sounded like he had plenty of opportunities to pick up first downs with his legs and he did not. They said he coaches told him to run more and he still didn't do it. And part of the reason is he doesn't want to be lumped in with the running QBs. I just think that is stupid.
Hopefully it was because he didn't want to get hit in college. College rules aren't close to as stringent as the pros in regard to hitting the QB. Maybe it was just self preservation when he's not getting paid.
In the pros he'll do what he needs to do.
