Running Back Rankings Going Into The 2019 NFL Combine

3. Devin Singletary, Florida Atlantic 5-9, 200 (2)

Career Statistics: 714 carries for 4,287 yards (6.0 ypc), 66 TDs. 51 catches for 397 yards, 1 TD

Why Devin Singletary Is Here On The List: Ultra-productive despite being keyed on by everyone, he’s a smooth runner who seems to always find his way into the end zone. Yeah, he got a LOT of work, but he doesn’t take a slew of big hits and doesn’t seem to be affected throughout a game.

Best of all, he’s a willing player who’ll do the dirty work for the hard yard, the big block, and anything else needed. However, he’s not all that big, and how much of a shelf life does he really have? The guy touched the ball 765 times in his career. With his style, there’s a chance he falls off a cliff fast.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Quickness and more speed. He’s a tough guy runner, and coaches are going to love his style, but he has to find a little bit of wiggle to his game to survive. Don’t expect a big 40 time, but he has to crush the short drills.

Bottom Line: Someone might see him as a missing piece back who could just turn into something special in the right offense. Of course he’s not Emmitt Smith or Frank Gore, but once he adds a little more bulk, he’ll play at around the same size and might just have a few years where his stats are comparable. There won’t be any longevity, but with the right team – hey, Houston and San Francisco – he might just be a top ten pick in your fantasy draft.
