Audric Estime sat on the bench as a freshman in 2021, backing up future fantasy football league winner Kyren Williams.
But he got his chance to be the RB1 for the next two seasons, and he thrived - 22% dominator rating as a sophomore and a 28% dominator rating this past season. He also scored 18 TDs (tied for second) and recorded over 1,300 rushing yards.
And he was beyond efficient with his 225+ touches - first in PFF grading (94.2), fifth in yards after contact per attempt (4.3) and third in rushes of 15+ yards. Per Sports Info Solutions, he also finished second in the class in both positive run percentage and boom percentage (which are both metrics that result in positive EPA and/or runs that generate an EPA of more than 1).
Also flashed strong hands with a 100% catch rate (26 targets) through two seasons. His pass protection needs fine-tuning, however, based on the scouting notes presented by Matthew Jones.
Still, with ideal size at 5-foot-11 and 221 pounds (slightly less than his college-listed weight at 227), Estime could easily be a future bell-cow back at the NFL level.
When I turned on the tape, I was impressed. Shades of Nick Chubb in his game as a north and south runner who doesn't waste his efforts.
And as a final note to sign off my love for Estime early in the draft process, the Notre Dame RB owns the second-highest yards per play (3.32) in the 2024 NFL RB Draft Class. He also owns the secons-highest single-season mark from this past season in yards per play (3.82).
Unfortunately for Estime, he ran a sluggish 40-yard dash 4.71 40-yard dash, not too dissimilar to Kyren Williams' 4.65 40-yard dash. However, his vertical was 38″ (87th percentile) and broad jump was 10'5″ 89th percentile) showcasing his explosiveness.
The concern with Estime is that his poor 40-yard dash hurts his draft capital. But as a player, it doesn't make me downgrade him too substantially, I'll likely scoop up the dip on Estime with his ADP going down.
