Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon is "a narrow-based runner who isn't as powerful as his size (6-foot-1, 226 pounds) might indicate," notes ESPN's Todd McShay.
McShay ranks Yeldon No. 65 overall in the class, basically a mid-Day 2 pick. "He'll break a few tackles, but he isn't an overpowering runner," McShay wrote. "Where he excels is with his lateral agility and acceleration off his cuts. So many times on tape I'd see him make a quick jump cut in the backfield to elude a defender and then explode through the hole. I think he can play in either a power O or zone-blocking running scheme, as he's patient, waits for blocks to develop and does a good job of finding cutback lanes." Yeldon has been compared to Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore. He's outstanding near the goal line. Apr 23 - 7:05 PM
