Elijah Holyfield Scouting Report


"Angry runner that uses ideal body lean to generate power ...but despite the guns, is small framed and lacks explosiveness"

Strengths:

Quick jump cutter with good vision that runs angry and with ideal body lean. Quick footed and runs square with a generally strong body angle.

Sinks hips on contact and always keeps his feet moving. Pile pusher and falls forward despite smaller size. Decent vision. A technician in pass pro.

Weaknesses:

Small framed and lacks speed. Just adequate burst. Changes direction quickly at the los but lacks elusiveness in the open field. Bounces wide a lot.

Despite some pile pushing highlights, the first tackler routinely brings him down at the 2nd level. Little experience as a pass catcher and struggled in combine receiving drills.

Overall:

Holyfield is something like a starter-pack franchise RB. He's a technician and has quickness, vision and toughness but he's small framed and lacks explosiveness.

If he grows as a pro and adds lower body strength, he could be a productive, average starter. As is, at best he's a functional change of pace and short yardage guy.
