With just weeks before the NFL draft, one running back is getting a lot of love, and it’s not who you might think.
We all know about Leonard Fournette, and how most mock drafts have him going as high as No. 4 to Jacksonville (if he slips passed the Jags, most don’t expect him to get past the Carolina Panthers at No. 8). But McCaffery, a 2015 Heisman finalist, in the top 10 is a bit stunner.
Various reports, however, rave about his two-way playing ability, like report from Sports Illustrated. The report notes that not only is McCaffery a terrific change-of-pace runner, but he’s also an adept receiver who could also contribute as a return man. The report also notes he has the athletic ability and speed needed at that position.
Now, we’ll wait to see if a team really believes he’s a top-10 talent.
