Kendall Milton and Dajun Edwards split touches the last four years at Georgia, as Bulldogs RBs tend to do. Neither back surpassed a 10% career college dominator rating having to sit behind future NFL running backs James Cook, Zamir White and Kenny McIntosh. Milton is the bigger of the two Georgia backs in this year's draft at 6-foot-1 1/2 and 225 pounds, while also posting vastly superior rushing statistics.
He was sixth overall in yards after contact per attempt in the class (4.1) and 5th in yards per play (3.1). Milton's not a burner - 4.62 40-yard dash (26th percentile) - so keep that in mind as he goes into the next level. It's all about the initial burst with Milton versus long speed. Case in point, his 10-yard split was tied for the fastest in the 2024 RB Draft Class at 1.51 seconds. His closest comparables per Mockdraftable.com from last season include Zach Charbonnet and Roschon Johnson. Milton's not getting much love after he went undrafted, but he signed with the Eagles. I believe he struck gold - in more ways than one - as he signed one of the richest UDFA contracts with the Philadelphia Eagles. Trust in Howie Roseman that he specifically targeted the former Georgia running back. Milton stands out on the Eagles roster as their largest running back at 6-foot-1 1/2 and 225 pounds.

So, although the Eagles also drafted Will Shipley in the fourth round, I wouldn't put it past Milton to ascend to No. 2 RB status behind free-agent acquisition Saquon Barkley, who has dealt with plenty of injury issues in the NFL.

Milton is a downhill, one-speed thumper. He's a one-cut rusher who gets up to top speed quickly (86th percentile 10-yard split). Milton lacks a home run gear, though, as he'll get caught from behind on long runs. Many of his 20-30-yard runs would be house calls for other running backs, but defenders are able to gain ground on him in the open field. Milton is an upright runner who can be cut down near the line of scrimmage if defenders hit him with a decent wrap. He can break some tackles in the second level, though, with a decent leg drive and a well-timed jump cut or stiff arm. Milton won't be a pass-game weapon at the next level. He only garnered 13 targets in college, but he was a capable pass catcher when called upon, as he secured 84.6% of those targets. Milton can be a safe check-down option, but don't expect him to evolve into more than that. He is a strong pass protector though, so he could surprise with the number of passing downs he plays. Milton can anchor his area and has plenty of strong reps on film where he stands up free rushers. He logged a 73.1 pass-blocking grade in his final season with zero sacks or hurries with his 26 pass-blocking snaps. Dynasty Outlook: The former bulldog has become an Eagle. Milton went undrafted and signed a contract with Philadelphia. With his SEC pedigree and eye-opening tackle-breaking metrics, Milton is worth stashing on a taxi squad. In most leagues, he'll go undrafted and can be added via the waiver wire after your rookie draft.
