Draft Analysis:

Tampa Bay could eventually convert Iosefa into a full time fullback. He lacks the athleticism to be an NFL running back may struggle to make it out of camp with a defined role. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

No-nonsense runner who prefers to rush between the tackles. Will coil his hips and deliver a blow into second-level linebackers attempting to tackle him and pass rushers in pass protection. Often leans shoulder into contact, absorbing blow while resetting feet to continue his run. Functional ability to cut and take it downhill. Can catch the ball out of the backfield and is adequate in pass protection.

Weaknesses

Bulky, but unathletic build. Shows below-average foot quickness, which limits ability to run to perimeter and to make defenders miss in space. Has marginal burst through line of scrimmage, forcing him to deal with consistent traffic around him. Doesn't possess ground-floor acceleration or wiggle to make consistent yardage in screen game.

Bottom Line

One-speed running back with some weight behind his pads, but not enough explosive power to offset his lack of burst and overall athleticism. Could struggle to find a home as an NFL running back and might need to take a look at playing fullback.
