He's a bigger back who was extremely productive for Kentucky, though I believe a lot of it came down to sheer volume. A lot of his weight comes from the top half of his body, which is opposite from someone like Saquon Barkley. Snell is a downhill runner who is willing to throw his body at a defender like a battering ram, always falling forward, but he's not going to create yards on his own. He looked like he was running in slow motion at the NFL Combine, something that doesn't exactly translate to most offenses in the NFL today.

Benny Snell Jr. selected 122nd overall by Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected Kentucky RB Benny Snell Jr. with the 122nd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

While the Steelers employ James Conner and swing RB/ TE Jaylen Samuels, there remained a need for running back depth, which Snell will bring. And although he is not touted for his speed, he is a powerful runner with deceptive patience and quickness who could be a short-yardage banger in the Steelers' new-look offense.
