Averaging 7.8 yards per carry for a season’s worth of work is very impressive. But doing it back-to-back years is bordering insane. And that’s exactly what RS Junior Lache Seastrunk has managed to do for the Baylor Bears in 2012 and 2013.
An Oregon transfer, Seastrunk was recognized by almost every major scouting outlet as one of the premier high school running backs in the Country. Since transferring to Baylor, he’s totaled 1,994 yards and 18 TDs during his two years as a starting running back with the afore-mentioned, mind-blowing 7.8 yards per carry (on 257 carries!).
Seastrunk was on pace to top his impressive 2012 season before a groin injury sidelined him. However, he appears to be healthy again and is likely to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft.
Andre Williams, the bruising and productive Heisman Trophy candidate runner for the Boston College Eagles exploded onto the national stage in 2013 with 2,103 yards rushing, 17 TDs, and a highlight reel that seems to go on forever.
Williams was a part-time runner prior to this season, as he totaled 349 career carries before getting 329 opportunities this year alone. And while he’s been a solid runner in years past, his senior season has really put his skills on display. Continue reading …
Teddy Bridgewater will be one of the first names called in the 2014 NFL Draft.
As the 2013 college football season comes to a close, the 2014 NFL Draft will begin to take form as underclassmen start declaring and the jockeying for draft status kicks into high gear.
FRG Scouting will begin posting our scouting reports and overall draft analysis as we hit mid-December. We will start by breaking down positional groups, with running backs up first. FRG will be evaluating 20 runners from this year’s class, with new reports posted every day. We will then move to the wide receivers, and continue in that fashion.
The following is the calendar (albeit not strictly enforced) that you can expect in the coming weeks: Continue reading …
The 2013 college football season is a month old, and with four games being in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to start taking a look at players who are making a steady climb up the 2014 NFL Draft Board.
Obviously, it’s early and things are still very fluid. But the following three draft-eligible prospects are guys that are playing better than I had expected OR have emerged from the shadows and placed their names squarely on the draft community’s radar. Continue reading …
With the 2013 college football season in full swing, it’s time to take a look at a handful of players who have made early season impressions, both good and bad, within the NFL Draft community. But first, some housekeeping.
My personal approach to the college football season and how it relates to the NFL Draft process is to wait until at least mid-late October before reacting to a prospect’s film. Players will have great games. Players will have bad games. In my opinion, it’s risky business to react too soon to a performance that falls on either end of that spectrum.
With that said, the NFL Draft community is not without its vocal and opinionated members. Continue reading …
