Speed
7.20
He is very explosive and often runs away from defenders. He has got good balance and a strong center of gravity
Elusiveness
5.50
He can make you miss but he can also run through defenders. His balance allows him to tiptoe down the sideline effectively.
Run Power
6.20
He has got a low center of gravity and can run through smaller defenders such as safety's and corners.
Finesse
6.10
He has got some wiggle and can make you miss. Although he is more of a one-cut runner.
Pass Catching
5.00
I did not see Travis Etienne catch a lot of passes. He was more utilized for his one cut ability as a runner.but when he does catch passes it seems pretty easy for him
Vision
7.20
He has got good vision against Wake Forest in 2018 his long TD runs he showed the tremendous vision to cut back through the open lane on his run.
Running in Traffic
6.50
His low center of gravity allows him to run through arm tackles easily.
Durability
6.00
I did not see and serious injury on his resume so he seems to be pretty durable.
Strength
6.50
He shoes his strength when he runs through arm tackles and keeps his balance on his runs.
Size
5.50
He is not the biggest back and it would be ideal if he could gain 5 to 10 lbs of lean muscle. 5''10 200lbs currently.
Productivity
9.50
He has been extremely productive the last 2 years and you could see why he is being touted as one of the best RBs of this year's draft. Nearly 1700s in 2018 and 1500 yds in 2019
Blocking
5.50
It's fine its what you would expect from a 5''10 200lbs RB. He can block smaller defenders
Intangibles
6.30
He has a lot of potential and will continue to improve and get better
Toughness
7.00
He carries a big part of the offense in terms of running. So because of that, I would say he must be pretty tough.
Character
5.00
I can not judge this as I have not met with him personally.
Consistency
8.00
He has been really productive and has maintained that productivity throughout 2019
Big Play Ability
8.10
He can take it to the endzone on any given play he is a very explosive back who possesses breakaway acceleration
Strengths
Travis Etienne is an extremely explosive back who has been extremely productive in the last 2 seasons. He possesses good balance strength and a good low center of gravity. He will be a productive one cut back who can get big chunks of yards.
Weaknesses
He is not overly elusive. He relies mostly on his one cut ability and his low center of gravity to break off long runs. I also did not see him catch the football a lot in my film study so that's another question mark for me.
Overall Analysis
I see him as a productive back in the NFL who could accel given the right training. I think he needs to work on his pass blocking and become a more consistent pass catcher. Overall I see him as a (Mid 1st Rounder to Mid 2nd Rounder)(15-55)
