Anthony McFarland Jr.
RB - PIT
Week 12 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Incredible athlete. Explosive. Strong lower body that allows him to reach 0-100 faster than any other back I've scouted this season. Incredible burst and top-end speed. Once he reaches a hole, he's gone. Great contact balance to absorb hits and simply continue to churn forward. Tough and willing to take on contact. Good natural pass catcher and clean route runner out of the backfield. All athleticism measurables will be off the charts. Lacks the traits to be an elite RB in the NFL though at this point. Poor vision and lacks patience. Will often reach his maximum speed so quickly that he's blowing past his blockers, such as a pulling guard, etc. Lacks control of his athleticism. Is so urgent once he has the ball in his hands that he doesn't wait for a play to develop and will try to make things happen on his own. His athleticism allows this to hit every once in a while, but it won't fly in the NFL. Also a liability in pass protection. 2019 tape shows less start/stop ability, but could also have been because of him dealing with a high ankle sprain. Shows potential and promise as an athlete, but needs to work on the more nuanced portions of the position.
