2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about RASHAAD PENNY: San Diego State, 5110 220 4.46. One-year starter from Norwalk, CA. Made his name as a return man in 2015 and 2016, winning Mountain West Special Teams Player of the Year both years. Playing under the shadow of the program’s all time leading rusher Donnel Pumphrey, Penny slowly but surely showed that he is more than a return specialist. The light-footed, explosive straight-line runner is a threat to score every time he can get in space. Can be a tough ball carrier to bring down for defensive backs, as his size/speed combination is rare. Gouged Arizona State for 216 yards in 18 carries and Stanford for 175 yards on 32 carries in back-to-back weeks. A patient power runner who shuffles through the line or can slam the ball up inside on the goal-line. Has some slide and glide to his running repertoire. A four-down back with good vision to break the ball against the grain. Many times he doesn’t get touched until the second level. Concluded his career with five 200- yard plus games. Was not asked to catch the ball much for the Aztecs, but showcased his talent at the Senior Bowl. Senior Bowl notes: Was as good as advertised demonstrating his power and strength. He is a smooth and fluid athlete who can run, catch, and block. The ex-Aztec will be a factor in the kickoff return game. Gets up the field quickly when he catches check down and underneath routes. He can make the low ball catch then can out-quick defenders in space. 2017 stats: 2248 yds, 7.8 ypc, 23 TD, 19 rec, 132 yds, 7.0 avg, 2 TD, 2-70 PR, 35.0 avg, 1 TD, 17-521 KOR, 30.7 avg, 2 TD. OSR:8/29. Second/third round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 1/4, BP-13, SS-DNP).
