Rountree's certainly not going to attract the same type of buzz or attention as the top prospects in this class, but he's absolutely going to be a mid-round steal for a NFL team. He was used both as an in-between the tackles runner and outside zone rusher at Missouri. While he was effective on outside zones due to his proficiency in turning the corner, he did miss obvious running lanes from time to time. His offensive line didn't do him many favors in making these obvious, but there were some missed opportunities on tape. However, when he's running downhill, he's extremely effective. No nonsense runner in a downhill scheme that has the acceleration to take advantage of an opening in the line right away. Good patience from time to time too and able to manipulate his feet to put him in the best position to attack a lane. Great short-area quickness and acceleration ability. Certainly not elite and he won't be breaking angles in the open field, but has enough gas in the tank to accelerate quickly when he finds open field. Struggles to halt his momentum when he's running full speed, which hinders him in the open field. Doesn't have the lateral mobility to jump multiple gaps at the LOS, but has enough to manipulate space in small windows and put himself in a good position to accelerate through the line. Willing to embrace contact at all levels of the field, but doesn't necessarily have the size to drive defenders backwards. More of an elusive athlete than a power back. Doesn't have elite breakaway speed, but has more than enough to be a factor in today's NFL. Carries his momentum well around the corner on outside zone runs and then can kick it into another gear if there's open space. Won't be breaking away for 50+ yard runs consistently, but will be able to pick up chunk plays.Good contact balance and has a solid center of gravity. Able to spin out of contact well and come right back to a solid foundation. Also able to break tackles well. Slippery at times. Had a bad whiff on tape against Georgia, but then showed natural receiving ability the remainder of the game. He's unlikely to be a heavily featured receiver out of the backfield, but the skillset is there to capitalize on for a NFL team. Rountree's able to scan and identify where the pressure is coming from quickly enough and he's often putting himself in the proper position. However, he's merely just someone who can get in the way and slow down incoming pressure. If he meets a larger defender, he's going to be driven backwards more often than not. Overall, Rountree has the skillset to fit any scheme in the NFL and he has the talent to make an impact. He's unlikely to land in a spot that will give him the "keys to the kingdom", but he can be a highly effective part of a rotational backfield. Should be an early Day 3 pick.

Fantasy Impact

Roundtree wasn't involved in the game and only came in to give Austin Ekeler a breather. He should be left on waivers unless an injury occurs.
