2015 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Ameer Abdullah, RB, Nebraska
Ameer Abdullah's running style is similar to Tennessee's Bishop Sankey, the first running back taken in the 2014 draft, but as November kicked in, the smallish ball carrier's heavy work load seemed to have caught up with him. He struggled early in 2013 with a knee sprain and in the November 2014 clash vs. Purdue, he left after the second series with a left knee sprain, totaling one yard on six runs. After posting 229 yards vs. Miami, 208 vs.Illinois and 225 vs. Rutgers before the Purdue clash, he was held to 69 vs.Wisconsin and 98 vs. Minnesota in his two appearances after the Boilermakers contest.
Overuse might be the cause for him breaking own at the end of the year, as he touched the ball 237 times for 1,523 yards and 18 touchdowns, catching 16 passes and averaging 24.7 yards on 11 kickoff returns in 2014. His 7,186 all-purpose yards rank second in Big Ten annals and leads all active FBS players. A potential target for Detroit and Baltimore in the second round, his cat-like quickness has scouts likening him to former Detroit Lions Jahvid Best.
