Strengths:

  • Great size
  • Athleticism
  • North/South runner
  • Good lateral movement
  • Elusive for his size
  • Powerful

Analysis: When you look at the size of Foreman and then watch him play, you can easily forget that he’s a 250-pound running back. He has outstanding athleticism for a big runner with smooth lateral movement. Has feet and agility for slide and go cuts from one gap to the next without a noticeable gear down. Surprisingly fast play-speed, and can make defenders miss in the open field (loves to hurdle defenders). D’Onte Foreman proved he could shoulder heavy workload while cranking out consistent production week after week. Had tremendous conversion rate when short yardage was needed.

Weaknesses:

  • Pass Protection
  • Ball Security
  • Tries to be ‘too elusive’
  • Patience

Analysis: I am high on Foreman as a NFL prospect, but he could have used another year at Texas. That being said, he’s a running back who has mileage on his tires, so I can’t blame him for coming out. One thing that will hurt his draft value is his horrendous pass protection, consistently whiffing on defenders—due to technique and laziness. Alarming ball security issues this season with seven fumbles and six lost. He usually opts for finesse over power despite his size. Needs to become more decisive and aggressive between the tackles.
