2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon State

Jaquizz Rodgers - RB – Oregon State

5-7 192 lbs. Junior

Stats:                       

2008- 259 rushes, 1253 yards, 4.8 ypc, 11 TDs, 29 rec, 247 yards, 1 TD

2009- 273 rushes, 1440 yards, 5.3 ypc,  21 TDs, 78 rec, 522 yards, 1 TD

Pros:

Quizz Rodgers is a homerun hitter.  He hits the hole with a burst.  Runs with power between the tackles and at the goal line. Extremely quick feet, his agility is outstanding, he will make the first guy miss quite often.  He stops on a dime. You won’t bring him down with an arm tackle.  Has experience in the WildBeaver(Oregon States version of the Wildcat) he even threw a TD pass out of it last year.  Above average receiver out of the backfield.  Does not turn the ball over. Very high character individual.

Cons:   

Jacquizz Rodgers has one definite flaw, his size.  Being only 5-7 192 lbs could hurt his draft stock.  He is a dominant force in the Pac 10, but that isn’t saying much lately.  In the games I watched, he had the tendency to get outside with the potential for a long run, but somebody would catch him from behind.  That is about it for the Cons.

Thoughts:

I am a huge Quizz Rodgers fan.  He has an electricity about him every time he touches the ball.  While I was watching his film I had many different comparisons.  First I thought Leon Washington of the Seattle Seahawks, then I would see Darren Sproles of the San Diego Chargers and when he was running through tacklers I thought of Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars.  He is a complete package,  I could see a move to the slot WR position as well. I just hope scouts don’t make the mistake of paying too much attention to his small stature.  He is on my short list of Heisman candidates.

Projected Round:

He will be picked no later than the middle of round 2.
