Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah's "elusiveness is the best of any player in this class," writes ESPN's Todd McShay.
McShay ranks Abdullah as the second-best player in space in this class (behind WR Tyler Lockett). "His stop-start ability is outstanding, making defenders miss and then accelerating again as though he never lost momentum," McShay wrote. "He also stands out as the best in this class for his ability to weave in and out of creases. Some guys have elite agility but don't feel the holes in time, and others can anticipate openings but don't have the quickness to exploit them. Abdullah has a rare combination of both skills." The analyst wrote previously that he envisions Abdullah being deployed as the Bengals use Gio Bernard with Jeremy Hill. "There were so many times I'd watch Abdullah on tape when he'd be going full speed and then stop on a dime to make a sharp lateral or diagonal cut without having to gear down," McShay wrote. "Not many guys in the NFL can do that. He's a threat as a pass-catcher and as a returner as well." Apr 27 - 2:19 AM
