Jets selected Louisiana-Lafayette RB Elijah McGuire with the No. 188 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
McGuire (5’10/214) graduated as Louisiana-Lafayette's all-time leader in all-purpose yards (5,968) and TDs (52), posting a career 711/4,312/42 (6.1 YPC) rushing line with 129/1,383/10 (10.7 YPR) receiving. Despite his prolific compilation stats, McGuire’s yards-per-carry average descended every year in college (8.4 > 7.6 > 5.0 > 4.9), and he tested as a 24th-percentile athlete before the draft, running well (4.53) in Indy but flunking the three-cone drill (7.26). Still, McGuire’s pass-catching resume, reliable ball security, and compact build give him some appeal as a potential committee back. Apr 29 - 4:17 PM
