Overview

Dwyer is a big, powerful ball carrier that has had a lot of production at Georgia Tech but some of the numbers could be inflated due to the style of offense the Yellow Jackets run. The triple option tends to put ball carriers in wide open run lanes that won’t always be available to the pro style attack. He is a one-cut ball carrier that will stick his foot in the ground and hit the seam at full speed. He shows good balance on contact, runs through his share of arm tackles and shows surprising speed for his size. He is the kind of back that most teams are looking for as a featured ball carrier but will need some work on the passing game as far as blocking or running routes out of the backfield.

Analysis

Strengths

Dwyer has an outstanding blend of bulk, size and speed for the position. Was highly-productive in college. Shows a competitive fire and consistently battles for extra yards. Flashes good blocking ability. Has displayed some downfield receiving skills. Very durable performer capable of carrying the load at the next level.

Weaknesses

Has outstanding size but can struggle to keep his weight down at times. Played in an option system not often seen in today’s college game resulting in some inflated stats. Lacks the elusiveness to turn nothing into something and make multiple defenders miss.
