Kalvin McRae, RB, Ohio

McRae is one of the most interesting prospects in this year NFL draft. A three year started at Ohio, McRae began his career in 2004. He led the team in rushing with 559 yards in 142 attempts. In his sophomore season, McRae rushed for 1,153 yards on 209 attempts, while scoring seven TDs. After the season, he was selected to the First Team All-MAC. He re-validated this honor in 2006. He set the school all time record with three consecutive 200+ yards games. In 2007 he gained over 1,500 yards in total offense, again making the All-MAC team. McRae was a productive feature back at Ohio. He runs with good instinct and has good vision. He is more quick than fast (4.50-40), changes direction smoothly and is a north-south runner. He protect the ball well and is a good receiver. He also extends his hand and will catch a ball thrown away from his body. McRae is only an average blocker, but shows good blitz recognition. But, his competition level is not a real concern. He has a good, not great, set of skills and he need to show more toughness inside. McRae could struggle with a complex system in the next level. McRae is a good prospect. Although he does not excel at anything, he does bring a good skill package to the next level. He will need to add strength. His lack of inside running ability would hurt his draft status. He really needs to impress scouts at his Pro Day and the Combine. Right now, he has a middle of the draft skill set, but he could be a sleeper.
