Josh Fields RB UTEP Scouting Report

Position rank: 45
40-yard dash time: 4.63-seconds
Height: 5-9, Weight: 195 lbs
Strengths
  • Not the biggest, strongest or fastest but does enough with preparation and instincts to get a look. Not big or tenacious as a blocker in the passing game.
  • Shows a surprising burst to beat linebackers to the edge. Can plant his foot in the ground and explode, showing better straight-line speed than expected.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
  • Compact build with a thick upper body and leg strength. Runs hard and with balance, is a patient runner who makes subtle, energetic cuts to make up for his modest explosiveness.
Weaknesses
  • Goes down too easily upon contact and needs to do a better job staying on his feet and anticipating hits. Needs to be more of a finisher and run with more purpose and determination.
  • Lacks a true burst through the hole and elite speed to break away or get to the corner against NFL defenses.
  • Lacks size to be a true power back, will not move piles at the next level.
  • Inconsistent breaking tackles and lacks elite speed. Too often bounces plays outside looking for the home run. Doesn't play with consistent focus or physicality.
  • Offers little in pass protection and poor technique cut blocking, fails to do more than slow down blitzers by laying down in front of them.
