Cowboys selected Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough with the No. 236 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
Scarbrough (6’1/228) was ticketed to succeed Derrick Henry as the Crimson Tide’s power back, but fell short of expectations due to injuries. He turned pro after a 267/1,512/20 career rushing line, averaging 5.7 yards per carry with only 21 receptions. Scarbrough fractured his leg at the end of his sophomore season and wasn’t nearly as efficient last year. He did test as an 86th-percentile SPARQ athlete with 4.52 speed and a 40-inch vertical at the Combine. Always a talented two-down runner, Scarbrough is arriving to the NFL about a decade late. His ceiling is a committee back and/or short-yardage/goal-line specialist. Apr 28 - 6:18 PM

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compared Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough to former Alabama RB and current Tennessee Titan Derrick Henry.

This one is real easy to see, even if they didn't both play for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. Zierlein has concerns about Scarbrough's "upright" running style and lack of patience, but notes that he's a " punisher behind his pads that can absorb solid blows and keep runs alive." There's a chance that someone who falls in love with his 6-foot-1, 232-pound frame takes him on Day 2, but Zierlein currently projects him to go early on Day 3, meaning the fourth or fifth round.

Alabama's pro day on Wednesday was attended by 80 scouts representing all 32 NFL teams.

It's no surprise that Bama's was a packed pro day, but even given the program's pedigree of producing NFL talent, 80 scouts is a bonkers number. Beyond the scouts, a number of NFL head coaches -- including Bill Belichick, Mike Tomlin and Mike Vrabel -- and college coaches -- including a trio of ones who lost their jobs this winter in Bret Bielema, Butch Jones and Rich Rodriguez -- were also present for the festivities. All told, 14 Alabama players took part in testing and drills on Wednesday. Others, such as star DB Minkah Fitzpatrick, opted only to meet with NFL teams, rather than retest combine numbers.

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough produced the a composite score in the 84th percentile during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Scarbrough was impressive in Indianapolis, showing quality athleticism that becomes even more impressive when you consider his 6-foot-1, 228-pound size. The question mark with Scarbrough is whether or not he can stay healthy on the field, and if he can contribute in the passing game. He could be a solid tandem-back with someone of smaller stature, and he should hear his name called on Day 2 or early on Day 3.

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

We have our questions about Scarbrough in terms of his health and consistency, but we never had any concerns about his overall level of athleticism. His 4.52-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-1, 228 pounds was impressive enough, but the back also demonstrated incredibly impressive work in his jumps, notching 40 inches on his vertical and 129 inches on his broad. The latter leap was tops among all running backs. If he can come through clean -- or relatively clean -- on his medical checks, he's exiting this weekend as a winner. He's pushing for a Day 2 selection, though one is far from a given at this juncture.

The Cleveland Browns asked Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough if God is an Auburn fan.

"I said, 'No, I definitely don't think he is," Scarbrough said. Welcome to silly season, y'all.

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough unofficially recorded 14 reps in the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Scarbrough (6'1/228) is a player whose lengthy wingspan -- in his case, 80 3/8 inches -- probably hurt in the bench press, but 14 reps is a respectable enough mark for the back nonetheless. While we aren't the biggest of Scarbrough fans, we're expecting sharp testing marks in the coming days. Medical checks are going to be of the utmost important for the injury-prone back.
Mar 1 - 5:33 PM

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough's hand measured in at 10 inches at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Not only did Scarbrough's ginormous hand size impress, he also measured in with a pterodactyl-esque wingspan of 80 3/8 inches. In terms of more traditional marks, the Alabama NFL hopeful measured 6-foot-1 3/8 inches with a weight of 228 pounds. This is more or less what we expected, if just slightly under on the height front. Alabama had been listing him at 6-foot-2. In terms of his combine moving forward, we're keen to see how he checks out medically (he has a checkered injury history). Scarbrough was a player who underwhelmed us for most of his time in Tuscaloosa and we're viewing him as an early Day 3 pick at this juncture, though Day 2 will probably be in play.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Scarbrough (6'2/227) was a five-star recruit coming out of high school back in 2014 and enrolled with much hype in Tuscaloosa. He largely underwhelmed at the collegiate level, though, outside of a monster stretch late in the 2016 season. This year, the redshirt junior rushed for a relatively modest 596 yards (4.8 YPC) and eight touchdowns. While Scarbrough has the strength to bust through arm tackles, he lacks the shiftiness of former Tide RB Derrick Henry and tends to lose some of his speed and momentum when moving laterally and making cuts. He also comes with a loaded medical history, having twice torn his ACL and twice suffered broken legs. In terms of draft slot, he could potentially see some late Day 2 interest with a strong evaluating process.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline expects Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Scarbrough (6'2/227) won't be announcing anything until after the National Championship Game on Monday. Pauline writes that he expects the "floodgates to open" at Alabama following the title bout, with a number of draft-eligible Tide players expected to declare along with Scarbrough. For his part, the redshirt junior has rushed for 573 yards (4.8 YPC) and eight touchdowns on the year. He's flashed at times during his career in Tuscaloosa -- particularly during last year's Playoff run -- but failed to turn in a Derrick Henry-esque campaign worthy of Heisman glory. Expect him to fall off the spring board on Day 2 or early on Day 3 of the draft.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarborugh rushed for 54 yards on five carries in the school's victory over Mercer on Saturday.

This includes a 44-yard run. Scarbrough is a big man who can rumble, and his long run displayed those skills after contact. His draft process, including the athletic testing profile, will be one to watch.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough rushed for 39 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Saturday's 24-10 win over LSU.

In a game that felt very much like Alabama/LSU contests of past lore, neither team did much of anything on offense. It was actually Jalen Hurts who led Bama in rushing (he had 44 yards on the ground), but Scarbrough paced his fellow running backs with that modest 39-yard tally. He did manage a nine-yard touchdown run in the opening seconds of the second quarter. There was plenty of hope for a big campaign by the redshirt junior entering the season given the way he performed down the stretch a year ago, but Damien Harris has largely pushed him to the side during the current campaign. Scarbrough has yet to surpass 80 yards rushing in a game this season.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough said that he has lost 15 pounds since breaking his leg against Clemson this past January.

"My body feels more clean. It feels more stable so I can move the way I want to move and I’m able to do some of the things I couldn’t do," Scarbrough said. He's down to about 227 pounds. Despite a slow start to the season -- the redshirt junior has rushed for just 142 yards and a touchdown in three games -- Scarbrough insists that he is on the level in terms of his health, saying, "I feel 100 percent and also I feel like my game has gotten better."

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough ran 12 times for 66 yards and a score in a 41-23 victory over Colorado State on Saturday.

Scarbrough outcarried fellow Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris 12 to 11 on the day. His long carry of the game was a 17-yarder, and he had a nine-yard touchdown in the middle of the third to give Alabama a 31-10 lead. It'll be interesting to see how many carries Scarbrough gets -- or doesn't -- when the Tide take on Vanderbilt next Saturday.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Scarbrough did not practice over the weekend while he battled a stomach bug, but he returned on Tuesday without showing an ill-effect. He'll be suiting up for Alabama against Florida State come September 2 barring an unforeseen setback with his health.
