Tarik Cohen NFL Draft Profile
Tarik Cohen-RB-North Carolina A&T
Size: 5’6 179lbs
- Home-run threat
- Good hands
- Slippery in space
Analysis: Tarik Cohen was one of the most productive running backs at the FCS level the past four seasons. The MEAC’s all-time leading rusher (5,619 yards) and first three-time conference Offensive Player of the Year was an All-American in 2016, setting a school record with 1,588 yards and 19 touchdowns on 212 carries (37-339, one TD receiving). Nicknamed “The Human Joystick” for his ability to make seemingly impossible cuts, Cohen can make any defender miss anywhere on the field. Field vision is excellent and he can be a factor on pass plays coming out of the backfield.
- Played against lower-level competition
- Sometimes looks to make too much happen
- No return experience
- Takes big hits
Analysis: Tarik Cohen’s draft stock obviously takes a hit due to his size and stature and he is way too eager to take plays off script. Wants to swing for the fences on every snap and will have to learn when to hit singles. Too eager to bounce everything. Takes big hits from big men when trying to fight out of tackles and squeeze out extra yards. He never really faced elite competition in college, so there will always be the questions…can he hang with the big boys?
NFL Comparison: Darren Sproles
