Player Notes Pros

 

  • Elite speed and acceleration, if he gets into the open field he's gone

  • Very elusive, strings together moves without losing speed or momentum

  • Footwork is incredible, jump cuts, start stops, and spin moves look effortless

  • Excellent contact balance, keeps his legs churning for every last inch 

  • Has great leverage with a low center of gravity

  • Very physical style for a smaller back, doesn't shy away from contact

  • Minimal college wear and tear with only 269 touches over two seasons

  • Capable receiver out of the backfield, looks comfortable catching passes

  • Big play waiting to happen every single time he touches the ball

  • Created a ton of missed tackles, very slippery and difficult to tackle cleanly

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Smaller back, durability may become a concern at the NFL level

  • Likely won’t be an effective short-yardage back, frequently stood up at goal line

  • Willing blocker but he just doesn’t get square and absorb rushers effectively

  • Only 139 college carries, McFarland could benefit from more experience
