  • Falls forward on contact, consistently gaining positive yardage.
  • Shows bursts of impressive lateral agility, complementing his power running style.

  • Occasionally overly patient behind the line, allowing defenses to disrupt plays.

  • While built for pass protection, needs further skill development
Scouting Report: Summary
Audric Estime, from Notre Dame, is a prototypical power back, ideal for a ground-and-pound offensive scheme. His tape shows a back with the physicality to break tackles and consistently make positive yardage, even in goal-line situations. Estime's north-south running style and ability to churn out tough yards between the tackles make him a reliable option on early downs and in clock-management scenarios. However, his limited burst and top-end speed restrict his ability to stretch plays outside or break off long runs, especially against more athletic NFL defenses.

His vision and patience in finding and attacking lanes are noteworthy, but there's a tendency for him to over-rely on these traits, leading to some hesitation and missed opportunities. Estime's lateral agility, while sufficient, doesn't currently extend to making him a dual threat in the backfield. His pass-catching and route-running are areas for development in the hope he can transition into a more versatile three-down back

Estime is best suited for a rotational role in a committee backfield, bringing a physical, downhill rushing style. His frame and skill set show potential in pass protection but is an area needing refinement if he's used on third-down. Ball security has been a concern and needs tightening up to avoid turnovers at the next level. Overall, Estime is a downhill bruiser with a straightforward approach, offering immediate value as a traditional back that's able to grind out those tough yards.

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.
