Jacquizz Rodgers #35 RB
Height: 5-6 Weight: 199 Age: 25
Born: 2/6/1990 Richmond , TX
College: Oregon State
Experience: 5th season
High School: Mirabeau B. Lamar HS [Houston, TX]
Selected By: Atlanta Falcons
Pick (Overall): 14 (145)
Rodgers is a highly productive, extremely competitive, explosive, well-rounded running back prospect who simply lacks a lot of size compared to most starting NFL running backs. Despite stature, is productive between the tackles with his burst, shouldered a heavy workload in college, picked up a lot of yardage after contact, and never hesitates or backs down. Has great acceleration, balance, quickness, hands as a receiver, determination, and stamina. Can be impatient at times behind the line of scrimmage, lacks NFL home-run speed, and is not a good matchup against power pass rushers. Rodgers likely will be a mid-round selection.
