Jeremy McNichols  

Height: 5-9   Weight: 205   Age: 23

Born: 12/26/1995 Long Beach , CA

College: Boise State

Experience: Season









Draft 2017

Pick No.162

Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 18 (162)

Pick Analysis: Even though Boise State already had a strong runner on board in Jay Ajayi, coaches saw enough of McNichols' all-purpose talent in 2014 to take off his redshirt in the season's sixth game. He was used as a receiver and returner as often as a runner that year (17-159, TD rushing; 15-155, TD receiving; 19-393 kick returns). After Ajayi moved on to the NFL, McNichols more than carried his share of the offense as a second-team All-Mountain West pick in 2015 (1,337 yards, 20 TDs rushing; 51-460, six TDs receiving), tying for second in the FBS with 26 total scores. He repeated second-team all-conference honors in his junior season, ranking in the top 10 in rushing yards per game (138.6) and all-purpose yards (2,255) while lifting the ball 314 times and carrying the load as a receiver (37-474, four TDs).
