Ronnie Rivers RB Fresno State Scouting Report

Position rank: 19
40-yard dash time: 4.63-seconds
Height: 5-9, Weight: 195 lbs
Strengths
  • 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.
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
  • Lacks a true burst through the hole and elite speed to break away or get to the corner against NFL defenses.
  • He needs a few steps to get going with limited burst and foot speed. Has an inconsistent feel eluding tacklers and doesn't create a lot on his own. He doesn't display much power to push the pile or consistently break tackles.
  • May not break away from NFL defenders. Has had fumbling issues and doesn't shift the ball to outside arm.
  • Lacks size to be a true power back, will not move piles at the next level.
