If he reduces fumbles and increases his strength this fall, Alabama junior RB T.J. Yeldon could "make a push to be the first back taken in next year's draft," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.
McShay ranks Yeldon as the No. 3 running back prospect, behind Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and Georgia's Todd Gurley. It would be a shock if Yeldon could leapfrog both of them, but he does have tantalizing ability. "Yeldon is tall with a somewhat lean frame, and isn't an overpowering runner, but he has good balance and can keep his feet moving after contact," McShay wrote. "He also has excellent lateral agility (especially for a taller back), which, combined with his instincts and patience, makes him highly effective at finding the hole and accelerating through it on runs. He has good but not elite top-end speed, and can seamlessly string together multiple cuts. He's a very competitive runner, and solid in the passing game, but his ball security is a big concern (four fumbles, including three lost, on 227 touches in 2013)." Aug 25 - 6:35 PM
