Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A compact runner, Vidal has a rare blend of balance, agility and instincts.
  • A downhill runner who picks up momentum as he goes and does a nice job absorbing contact between the tackles - physical with good pad level.
  • Vidal has the size and toughness to be developed as a pass protector.
  • His passing game skills are strong. He’s a natural hands catcher who turns upfield quickly in the screen game, and he shows a great feel for setting up wheel routes.
  • His initial burst is excellent, and he’s capable of running out of a traditional setup or taking the ball lined up next to a quarterback in shotgun.
  • He’s a natural pass catcher who can be used on screen and swing passes, and he has the ability to flex out as a matchup chess piece.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s good in space, but Vidal doesn’t show much nuance as a route runner; he’s not necessarily a threat when he’s flexed out.
  • Lacks elite size for the position and looks maxed out physically - also carries some durability concerns. Has short legs with only average top-end speed and can be caught from behind.
  • Vidal is the kind of glue guy who has a chance to stick around for a long time as a role player and special teams contributor. But he doesn’t have the physical skills to stand out in a very good running back class.

*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.
