RB - SF
Week 6 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Sermon's a smart and intelligent RB prospect that lacks elite traits, but simply produces. He has good vision and understands when it's the right time to bounce outside. He's willing to get downhill if the hole is there and continuously gash a defense. Has enough burst and acceleration to get downhill quickly and hit the gap before it closes up. Lacks the ability to go from a full stop to full acceleration quickly though. Is more reliant upon what the offensive line creates for him than what he can create on his own. Struggles to change direction laterally. Runs upright and a bit stiff. Needs to improve his footwork and keep his legs underneath him to be in better position to change direction side to side. Willing to engage in contact and lower his shoulder. Able to meet defenders at the second level and drive them backwards to pick up additional yardage. Has enough top-end speed to be a serviceable NFL RB, but won't be able to break away for long runs consistently. Phenomenal balance and ability to keep his feet underneath him. Able to manipulate small spaces well and use his balance as a threat. Able to break tackles and shed defenders because of his balance. Natural pass-catcher out of the backfield. Unlikely to be utilized heavily in this capacity in the NFL, but has more than enough ability in this area to be serviceable. Tends to drop his eyes in pass protection and has a tendency to be driven backwards. Willing to stand in, but this isn't an area that he'll be asked to contribute consistently at the next level. Overall, Sermon's a fine RB prospect that will need to land in the right system for him to maximize his talent. He's most likely going to be a part of a rotation in the NFL and should go off the board as an early day 3 pick.

Trey Sermon rushes for 89 yards in Sunday's loss
San Francisco 49ers Running Back Trey Sermon rushed 19 times for 89 yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Sermon led the way in the 49ers backfield on Sunday, out-carrying backup Jacques Patrick 19-2. Unfortunately, he saw no work in the passing game, seeing zero targets to Kyle Juszczyk's saw all four. On the year, Sermon has 30 totes for 128 yards and one touchdown to go along with three catches for three yards. He should continue to lead the way in the San Francisco backfield for as long as Elijah Mitchell is out.
