An NFC East scout said Michigan State RB Jeremy Langford isn't an NFL starter.
"I don't see him as a starter," the scout said. "I think he can be a backup or compete as a third-down back, but he doesn't run tough enough to be able to project him as a starter in really any scheme." We're surprised to hear someone imply Langford is a tentative runner, as that isn't what we've observed. Langford currently projects as a mid-round pick, though this year's stacked RB class could push him to Day 3. The 6-foot, 206-pounder collected 1,522 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on 230 carries this season. Feb 11 - 12:34 AM

Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage "was impressed" with Michigan State senior RB Jeremy Langford as a receiver and his "make-miss ability."

"I was impressed with Jeremy Langford in terms of the two days of practice, and as a receiver he had some make-miss ability," Savage said. "He may end up being a fifth- or sixth-round pick because of the nature of the position, but as far as the value, I saw him as a third- or fourth-rounder." The 6-foot, 206-pounder, a tough runner who can create yards on his own, collected 1,522 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns on 230 carries this season. Savage adds that Langford "could get on the field in those sub situations or pass situations, and "will find a place in the NFL." Langford currently projects as a mid-round pick, though this year's stacked RB class could push him to Day 3.

Michigan State senior RB Jeremy Langford rushed 25 times for 138 yards in Saturday's 37-15 win over Maryland.

Langford compiled 68 of his 138 yards in the fourth quarter, including a 25-yard touchdown run. The Spartans had to rely on the senior, as Connor Cook was having issues with accuracy throughout the day. This was Langford's 14th straight game of 100+ rushing yards against Big Ten competition. He's shown clear signs of development during his final college campaign, particularly with his vision and ability to finish off runs. He's jumped up his per-carry average from 4.9 in 2013 to 5.5 in 2014, which is indicative of these improvements. Langford is seen as a possible mid-round pick.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Michigan State senior RB Jeremy Langford "could be targeted early on Day 3."

Brugler adds that the 6-foot, 206-pound Langford "doesn't receive enough credit" at the RB position, and he was "at his best against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday. Langford rushed for 177 yards (5.1 yards a carry) and three touchdowns on 35 carries in Saturday's 35-11 win over Michigan. According to Brugler, Langord "has shown several improvements from last season." Langford finished with 1,422 yards on 4.9 yards a carry last year, while averaging 5.3 yards per carry on 125 attempts.

Michigan State senior RB Jeremy Langford "won’t be rated as highly as many of the talented underclassmen expected to enter the draft," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, "but he has all the tools necessary to produce at the next level."

"Langford grades out as one of the better running backs from the senior class heading towards next April’s draft," Pauline wrote. "Though 205-pounds Langford plays big, breaking tackles and displaying himself as a potent short yardage runner. He also has the speed necessary to beat defenders into the open field and holds his own as a pass catcher out of the backfield. Though Langford won’t be rated as highly as many of the talented underclassmen expected to enter the draft, he has all the tools necessary to produce at the next level."

Michigan State senior RB Jeremy Langford rushed for 177 yards and three touchdowns on 35 carries in Saturday's 35-11 win over Michigan.

"He’s a multi-cut ball carrier with the ability to swing it around the perimeter." The Michigan State prospect finished with 1,422 yards on 4.9 yards a carry last year.
