TD Donnel Pumphrey Scouting Notes

Donnel Pumphrey


Special vision, burst and lateral ability. Extremely elusive and tough. Shows patience and speed. Runs with lean when necessary and is a sturdy pint sized guy. Breaks tackles with wiry power and determination. Feet don't stop. Terrific motor and was a workhorse at 169lbs. Good receiver out the backfield and in the slot. turns catches in the flat into punt returns.


He's a smurf and the Aztecs run blocking was superb.


Pumphrey's an enigma. A pint sized RB shouldn't be as physical and sturdy as he is. He's getting overlooked because of his size and a deep RB class but he's got a Darren Sproles, Charlie Garner, Ahmad Bradshaw vibe to him. But even those backs were bigger than 176 lbs coming out of school. If he continues to get bigger/stronger without losing quickness he's another one of those three. If not he's Dexter McCluster.
