Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State #24

5110, 215, 4.56

Notes: From Pittsburgh, PA. Appeared in 13 games, rushing for 184 yards and 1 touchdown on 25 carries (7.4 avg.), catching 2 passes for 24 yards and 1 TD and returned 33 kickoffs for 688 yards (20.8 avg.) as a true freshman in 2016. Played in 12 games (1 start), rushed 31-191-2 (6.2 avg.), caught 6-30 and returned kickoffs 5-76 in 2017. Made 12 starts, rushed 220-1,275-9 (5.8 avg.) and caught 24-139 in 2018.

Positives: Adequate size and speed. Good vision and cutback ability. Can make the first man miss. Good quickness through the hole. Runs with nice leg drive and above average power and tackle-breaking strength. Fights for yards after contact. Good balance and determination. Can catch and block.

Negatives: Nothing truly elite or special in terms of size, speed, power or elusiveness. Needs development as a pass receiver.

Summary: Solid all-around back who can make a team and contribute when called upon, but doesn’t appear to be a feature ball-carrier.
