Khalil Herbert RB Virginia Tech Scouting Report

Position rank: 33
40-yard dash time: 4.46-seconds
Height: 5-9, Weight: 212 lbs
Chicago Bears Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 6 - Pick Number: 217 (CHI)
Strengths
  • Possesses quick feet and straight-line speed but doesn't have the elite burst to be a constant big-play threat. Improving patience as a runner, following pulling guards and makes good decisions on his cut.
  • Doesn't possess elite breakaway speed, but is fast enough to gain yardage in chunks when he finds a seam.
  • Has good burst to and through the hole. A patient runner with good vision and burst for the cutback. Squares his shoulders and can knock the defender back onto his heels. Good leg drive and forward lean to gain extra yardage after contact.
  • Flashes initial burst and good lateral quickness to sidestep defenders or bounce runs outside with very good foot quickness. Displays very good feel as an inside and outside runner with above average vision to make sharp cuts - good patience¬∑ and footwork to pick through defenses.
  • Has sneaky speed but won't always get to the corner. Runs low through the hole with size and strength to move the chains as an interior runner. Has a strong stiff-arm and spin move to slip defenders. Best in goal-line situations finds another level of determination. Good recognition as a runner and pass blocker. Natural receiver with versatility as a route-runner.
  • Has the feet and feel running between the tackles and in the open field. He has very good vision and patience to pick through defenses.
  • Solid receiver in the flat, capable of running through tackles on the edge to move the chains. Flexible enough to catch passes thrown behind him.
Weaknesses
  • Not the most instinctive runner and too often tries for the big play, dancing and losing yards. Lacks the natural power to push the pile and feels more comfortable avoiding contact.
  • Too indecisive and hesitant at the line of scrimmage.
  • A one-speed runner and lacks any explosive qualities with tight hips. Has poor balance and has the bad habit of losing coordination when changing directions - his feet and upper body look to be on two different pages.
