2022 NFL DRAFT: ISAIAH SPILLER

By Brandon Lane

Texas A&M (JR), RB

Spiller saw his stock dip after not running at the combine, and what he did show in his jumps had him ranked last at the position. There were reports prior to the combine he was dealing with a strained abductor muscle which lead to his limited participation. Spiller was a top recruit out of high school but made the decision to stay local and sign with the Aggies. He was successful in all three of his college seasons averaging a consistent workload (approximately 180 carries) and productivity (5.5 YPC) in each of those seasons with approximately 1000 yards rushing and 20+ catches. Based on those numbers he should have more tread left on his tires than some of his fellow draftmates and he won’t turn 21 until August, making him one of the youngest players in this draft class. We believe Spiller will be the 3rd-to-5th back off the board in this years NFL draft.

Pluses:
• Good size and adequate speed
• Elusive runner with excellent shiftiness
• Balanced runner that utilizes good pad-level to break tackles
• Built to carry a solid workload

Concerns:
• Needs to learn patience and how to read the field better
• Not known as a pass catcher
