Pro Football Focus compared UNC RB Elijah Hood to former New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley.
"Like Ridley, Hood is a better downhill runner who is capable of being a productive back while taking what is given by his run-blocking," notes the PFF analysis crew. They loved his work during the 2015 campaign, when he scampered his way to 1,463 yards, but saw a lack of speed and agility on tape in 2016. At least part of that may be due to injuries, including a concussion. In summation, PFF writes that "Hood’s vision is one of his best assets and his experience running in multiple schemes will help him be a contributor at the next level, but ultimately does not look like a lead back in the NFL."
