Overview

Bradford has linebacker size at the running back position and could be an effective player between the tackles at the next level. He is a strong runner with very good balance that excels in short yardage situations, but he does not have the speed, agility, or receiving skills to be a featured back in the NFL. Also, he thinks he is a finesse back at times and tries to break big runs to the outside which usually result in losses. Overall, Bradford has the strength and vision to be a weapon on third and short and he should be a mid-to-late round pick.


Strengths

Bradford is a big muscular back. Possesses good vision and finds seams between the tackles. Runs with good lean, keeps his legs churning and consistently picks up yards after contact. Pushes the pile in short yardage situations and is effective along the goal line.

Weaknesses

Does not have the top end speed to turn the corner and lacks explosiveness. Not athletic enough to make people miss in the open field. Dances a lot for a big man and has too many negative runs. Is a non factor in the passing game and is a liability in pass protection.

Grade

3.0
