Draft Profile: Bio
Quinshon Judkins, a powerhouse running back from Ohio State, has quickly become one of the most electrifying players in college football. Hailing from Pike Road, Alabama, Judkins dominated the high school scene, racking up 4,220 career rushing yards and 67 touchdowns. His senior year performance of 1,534 yards and 26 touchdowns caught the eye of several top programs, but it was Ole Miss that ultimately landed the three-star recruit.

Judkins wasted no time making his mark at the collegiate level. As a true freshman in 2022, he shattered Ole Miss records with 1,567 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on 274 carries. His phenomenal debut earned him SEC Freshman of the Year honors and a spot on multiple All-America teams. Judkins followed up with another stellar campaign in 2023, amassing 1,158 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground while adding 149 receiving yards and two scores through the air.

After two dominant seasons in the SEC, Judkins made the bold move to transfer to Ohio State for the 2024 season. The 5'11", 210-pound back brings a rare combination of power, explosiveness, and production to a Buckeyes offense loaded with talent. As he prepares for his junior season, Judkins has firmly established himself as one of the top running back prospects for the 2025 NFL Draft.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Exceptional burst and acceleration allow him to hit holes with lightning speed and turn small creases into big gains
  • Displays impressive contact balance, consistently breaking arm tackles and fighting for extra yards after initial contact
  • Possesses the vision and patience to set up blocks effectively in zone running schemes
  • Compact, well-built frame enables him to run with power and absorb hits without losing momentum
  • Demonstrates quick feet and sharp cutting ability to make defenders miss in tight spaces
  • Productive workhorse back who has proven he can handle a heavy workload at the highest level of college football
  • Shows good hands out of the backfield and the ability to create yards after the catch
  • Runs with a low center of gravity and good pad level, making him difficult to bring down
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Long speed is very good but not quite elite; can be caught from behind on longer runs
  • Sometimes relies too heavily on his physical tools and misses opportunities to bounce runs outside
  • Pass protection skills are still developing; needs to improve technique and recognition of blitz pickup assignments
  • Has room to grow as a receiver out of the backfield, particularly in route running and creating separation
  • Can improve ball security, as he's had a few fumbles in crucial situations
Scouting Report: Summary
Judkins looks like an immediate impact player at the next level with the potential to develop into a feature back for an NFL offense. His combination of vision, burst, and power makes him an ideal fit for zone-based running schemes. While he may not have the top-end speed of some elite backs, Judkins compensates with his ability to consistently create yards through contact and in tight spaces.

NFL teams will be particularly intrigued by Judkins' proven production against top-tier competition in the SEC. His transfer to Ohio State provides an opportunity to showcase his skills in a different offensive system, potentially boosting his draft stock even further. If Judkins can continue to refine his receiving skills and pass protection, he has a chance to solidify himself as a three-down back at the pro level.

As the pro game continues to value versatile, dynamic running backs, Judkins stands out as a prospect who can contribute immediately while possessing the upside to become a cornerstone player.

*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.
