Gabe Brooks National Scouting Analyst


4-7 Round Day 3

Adequate height with a surprisingly long, lean frame that, while narrow through the core, should fit more mass. Owns good length with a plus-5 wingspan.

A bit unique in play style relative to initial impression of build. Wiry strong runner who shows impressive functional strength to consistently run through arm tackles in the hole and at the second level.

Plays aware. Instinctive runner with good vision in the box. Presses the line of scrimmage and properly sets up blocks. Quick-footed in the hole to make first defender miss. Does a good job of cutting upfield and avoiding unnecessary bounces.

Great feel for the cutback. Pairs that with close-quarters agility to sometimes create his own cutback lanes. Noticeably improved top-end speed as a senior reflected in marked increase in per carry rate: 6.6 as a junior to 9.3 in 2021. Simply put, there was more open-field juice in 2021 than freshman-junior campaigns. Encouragingly caught 55 passes over junior-senior seasons after limited receiving exposure prior to 2020.

With almost 800 touches in four high school seasons, will carry mileage to college. Modest 6.1 per carry in first three seasons trailed other high-end backs in the class. Speed has improved but can still squeeze more juice out of that top gear. High-volume high school back whose wiry strong build may lend more to committee work in the long term.

Tough-minded runner with impressive instincts and vision who knows when to get upfield when necessary. Arrow seems to be pointing up after senior year, clearly his best to date. Projects to the Power Five level as a back who could potentially become an impact starter with NFL Draft upside.
