Scouting Report/Player Notes

Balance, vision, speed, breakaway ability–Joseph Randle has it all. The Junior tailback from Wichita, Kansas is about as complete a running back as you will find in the country. It’s interesting, because he’s been able to be so productive in an offense that is primarily pass-oriented and doesn’t feature the running back a whole heck of a lot. As a sophomore, he carried the ball a mere 208 times and finished with over 1,200 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 5.85 yards per carry. He also was able to catch the ball 45 times out of the backfield, and add another two touchdowns in the receiving department. Randle has excellent burst and cutback ability, and he knows how to be patient and wait for holes to develop. Tough runner with a lot of length, not as much bulk for the position as we’re used to, but he consistently falls forward and fights for extra yardage. Very valuable three-down tailback who will make an impact at the NFL level. I could see him leaving early after his junior season and being a top 64 pick.
