Wayne Gallman NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’0 210lbs
- Tackle breaker
- Always drives feet through contact
- North/South runner
- Succeeds in short yardage
Analysis: Wayne Gallman has always been overshadowed during his tenure at Clemson due to Deshaun Watson and Mike Williams getting most of the publicity, but he’s been just as successful accumulating 28 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons. He has quality burst through line of scrimmage to rip through arm tackles and attack the second level. Runs with plus effort every time he touches the ball. Keeps feet grinding through second level contact. Uses shoulders as legitimate weapons of force against would-be tacklers. Trusted option on fourth and short situations. Decisive in the red zone and brings some attitude with him. Decent hands coming out of the backfield.
- Upright runner
- Pass protection
Analysis: Wayne Gallman struggles when forced to make sharp, sudden cuts in tight quarters. Extended gear down could cause NFL holes to close on him. Vision becomes restricted when running between tackles. He doesn’t have the knee bend and low-to-the-ground running style you look for in a featured back. Always standing upright while running will cause future issues. He gets impatient and won’t always keep the track behind lead blocker. Below average balance. Can be upended by shoe-string attempts. Not ready for NFL pass protection duties yet.
NFL Comparison: TJ Yeldon
Draft Projection: Round 4
