Herbert's a smart and instinctive runner that has great awareness in-between the tackles. He has excellent vision and is able to quickly diagnose his blocks and pick out the correct running lane. He very rarely bounces to the outside and is able to quickly get positive yardage when he identifies an open running lane. Has good burst for his size. It's not on par with some of the other backs in this class, but it's more than enough for him to succeed in the NFL. Good lateral mobility and able to quickly plant his foot and move horizontally across gaps to hit the open lane. Good start/stop ability and uses this to his advantage in the open field to break defenders' tackling angles. Struggles to go from full speed horizontally to full speed acceleration vertically, which could be a minor hindrance, but he makes it for that with great vision.Willing to lower his shoulder and engage in contact, but he's unlikely to ever drive a defender backwards at his size. Good top-end speed and has the ability to break away from defenders in the open field. May not do this routinely against NFL-caliber defenders, but certainly has more than enough to be a factor in the NFL. Good contact balance and ability to shed tackles. Able to break free from arm tackles fairly easily and keep his legs underneath him. Only one target on film in the games I watched, but showed natural hands. Won't be heavily utilized in this fashion in the NFL though. Struggles in pass protection and often is out of position. Doesn't have the size to stand in against blitzing linebackers, etc. Overall, Herbert's a solid running back prospect that will be able to contribute nicely as a part of a rotation. He's unlikely to be a factor as a pass-catcher, so he'll need a pass-catching compliment in the backfield, but should have relevancy if he falls into the right spot. Most likely an early Day 3 pick.
