Matthew Dayes-RB-NC State
Size: 5’9 207lbs

Matthew Dayes

Strengths:

  • Patient runner
  • Decent agility
  • Good hands

Analysis: Matthew Dayes is a tempo-based, one-cut running back with good vision but an inability to break tackles and run with power. Best on outside zone plays with an opportunity to find back-side cuts. He runs with patience and presses line of scrimmage to set up his cuts. Outstanding peripheral vision. Translates to a third-down running back at the next level.

Weaknesses:

  • Not a three-down, workhorse back
  • Lower body strength
  • Doesn’t break tackles

Analysis: Matthew Dayes is not an every down back with his limited size. He doesn’t accelerate into contact and is too easily tripped by arm tackles. Missing necessary strength in lower body to break tackles and create through power. Averaged just 1.8 yards after initial contact over last two seasons. Lacks long speed to finish the breakaway run.

NFL Comparison: Kendall Hunter

Draft Projection: Round 6
