Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic #5

5086, 200, 4.52


Notes: From Deerfield Beach, FL. Nickname is “Motor,” a name given to him by his father, Devonn, who was also called that when he played running back at Norfolk State. Played in 12 games as a true freshman, rushing 152 times for 1,021 yards (6.7 avg.), 12 TDs, caught 26 passes for 163 yards and averaged 21.8 on 13 kickoff returns, in 2016. In 14 games, he rushed 301-1,920-32 (6.4 avg.) and caught 19-198-1 in 2017. Only two players in college football history have scored more rushing touchdowns in a single season – Barry Sanders (37) and Montee Ball (33).

Positives: Compact, decisive runner with excellent vision, instincts and cutting ability. Naturally weaves through traffic and finds daylight. Makes defenders miss in the open field. Effective spin move. Very good burst with enough speed to break long runs. Good body lean and runs with little wasted motion. Breaks arm tackles. Very quick, shifty and elusive. Can stop, start, and cut on a dime. Excellent balance and body control. Has a knack for minimizing contact with tacklers, who seldom get a clean lick on him. Catches the ball well. Very effective on screens.

Negatives: Short with average overall size. Lacks great pure power and tackle-breaking strength. Does not have elite, blazing, home run speed. Occasionally gets caught from behind.

Summary: Dynamic, elusive, big-play scatback who only lacks top size.
