Jeremy McNichols

Strengths:

  • Elusive
  • Vision
  • Patient
  • Stays low to the ground
  • Not afraid of contact
  • Good hands

Analysis: Jeremy McNichols is an average sized running back who has boasted eye-popping production over last two seasons. McNichols runs with vision and tempo and has experience in a variety of formations, personnel groupings and schemes. He is able to elude sudden traffic in backfield. Not much dancing. Can shift rush tracks without tapping brakes. Great vision and quick to process field in front of him. Trusts his offensive line and doesn’t need point of entry for committed, downhill approach. Anticipates flow of second level defenders and responds accordingly. He is a solid pass catching option with five catches of 25-plus yards this past season.

Weaknesses:

  • Won’t run away from DB’s
  • Doesn’t break many tackles
  • Ball security
  • Can’t escape the 2nd or 3rd levels
  • Pass protection

Analysis: McNicols won’t break away from many tackles at the next level averaging just 2.1 yards after initial contact this season. One-speed runner without the big burst to rocket through line of scrimmage and onto the safeties. Quicker than fast. Needs to do better job of protecting ball at impact. Fumbled eight times over last two seasons. Can be spotty in his protection. Looks to chop rushers down low and will whiff at times.

NFL Comparison: Jalen Richard

Draft Projection: Round 3-4
