Elijah McGuire

Strengths:

  • Thick frame
  • Ball security
  • Plus acceleration
  • Great hands
  • Versatile

Analysis: Elijah McGuire is your prototypical plant-n-go runner. he has a compact frame with good thickness in his legs. Runs with good ball security. Very athletic with plus acceleration. Runs with forward lean and has strong burst through the hole when he sees it.┬áHas some subtle wiggle approaching line of scrimmage. Excellent hand-eye coordination as pass catcher. Effective from the slot and into routes–which will be his real value to NFL teams.

Weaknesses:

  • Drops head
  • Lacks lateral cuts/speed
  • Doesn’t break tackles
  • Vision
  • Pass protection

Analysis: Elijah McGuire drops his head way too often, causing him to lose sight heading into the hole. Poor feel for spacing of the running lane. Runs too close to defensive linemen when open area is available. Lacks desired downhill toughness. Has no jump cut for optimal elusiveness. Lateral cuts driven by outside foot and lacks width. Will run up blocker’s back when there is still yardage to be had. Gives into tackles. Never finished with more than five broken tackles in a single season. Arm tackles throw him off his path. Pass protection needs work.

Draft Projection: Round 6
