Overview

Fannin has the tools to become a reserve running back who contributes on third downs. However, he has not shown the endurance, running power, and vision to be a fulltime starter at the next level. Flashes some redeeming rushing qualities; has good bulk, can get to the edge, and runs with intensity, but has some ball security issues, doesn't pick up enough yardage after contact and needs to show better awareness. Provides value in the passing game. Catches balls outside his frame, comfortable tracking the deep ball, can make plays after the catch, and is a willing blocker. Fannin's a Day 3 prospect.


Strengths

Fannin possess good size and speed. Flashes the ability to get to the perimeter. Breaks arm tackles and runs pretty hard. Versatile player who has lined up in the slot. Experienced in the passing game. Adjusts to poorly thrown passes and tracks the ball well over his shoulder. Good effort in pass pro.

Weaknesses

Doesn't have experience carrying the load. Inconsistent vision and patience as a runner. Doesn't always allow his blocks to develop and misses the cut back lane at times. Does not possess homerun speed or top elusiveness in space. Needs to improve pass blocking technique. Has an injury history.

Grade

2.0
