C.J. Prosise, Notre Dame
Though he has just one year of experience with more than 10 carries at the college level, former Notre Dame running back C.J. Prosise has soared up draft boards.
In 2015, Prosise carried the ball 157 times for 1029 yards (6.55 yards per carry) and 11 touchdowns, while he also brought in 26 receptions for 308 yards and one touchdown.
At 6’0”, 220 pounds, Prosise has desirable intangibles for position, as he also recorded a 4.48 second forty-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Despite his lack of experience, Prosise possesses a great understanding for the game, as he has great vision behind the line of scrimmage and will remain patient to set up his blocks. Also, Prosise’s ability to remain balanced through contact allows him to remain effective both in between the tackles and on the perimeter.
Though he has seemingly looked lost both as a receiver and in pass protection at times, his biggest knock is that he is unproven. With that being said, he is a high-risk prospect because you don’t necessarily know what you’re getting, but Prosise has the potential to become a late-round steal given his skill set.
