RB - LAC
The Los Angeles Chargers have selected RB Isaiah Spiller with the 123rd pick in the NFL Draft.
Spiller came in as one of the hottest names in the NFL draft and was viewed by many analysts as the second-best back in the draft. With Austin Ekeler continuing to rack up high mileage and deal with injuries, the team felt the need to draft the Texan A&M product. He led the Aggies in rushing in each of his first two years on campus, first as a SEC All-Freshman Team pick in 2019 (174-946-5.4, 10 TDs; 29-203-7.0 receiving in 13 games, nine starts) and then as a first-team all-conference selection in 2020 (188-1,036-5.5, nine TDs; 20-193-9.6 receiving in 10 games with eight starts).
According to the Pewter Report, Isaiah Spiller visited with the Buccaneers on Tuesday.
The Buccaneers hosted Texas A&M RB Isaiah Spiller on a top-30 pre-draft visit on Tuesday. The team recently failed to retain veteran RB Ronald Jones in the offseason but did manage to hold onto Leonard Fournette. With a backfield of Gio Bernard, Leonard Fournette, and Ke'Shawn Vaughn, it makes sense the team is looking to add another RB. During his time at A&M, Spiller amassed 3,578 yards and 26 total touchdowns.
Per Adam Schefter, top RB prospect Isaiah Spiller will run the 40 yard dash at Aggies pro day later this month.
Spiller did not run the 40 yard dash at the NFL combine this week, due to a strained abductor muscle. He has reportedly been dealing with the injury for some time, and it has limited his combine training. Perhaps this decision was made in the wake of impressive combine performances by Breece Hall and Kenny Walker III, as Spiller's agent said it would 'show why he should be the first RB taken'. Spiller averaged 5.5 yards per carry and scored 25 touchdowns in his three years with the Aggies.
