Scouting Report: Summary

Ashton Jeanty showcases impressive versatility as a dual-threat running back. His contact balance and ability to churn out extra yards after initial contact make him a tough runner between the tackles. Jeanty’s soft hands and capability in the passing game add significant value, allowing him to stay on the field in various down-and-distance situations. His high football IQ and ability to read defenses enhance his effectiveness.

On the flip side, Jeanty has some areas needing improvement. His route running is not as polished, and his vision can be hit or miss, sometimes leading to missed opportunities in finding the best gaps. While he has proven durable, the heavy college workload raises some durability red flags for the next level. Jeanty's performance against top-tier defenses has been inconsistent, showing he still has room to grow.

Jeanty projects as a valuable rotational back with the potential to break out as a feature back in the NFL. His ability to protect the quarterback and contribute on all three downs makes him a scheme-versatile asset. Teams seeking a reliable, tough runner with upside in the passing game will find Jeanty an intriguing prospect for the 2025 NFL Draft.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
