Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DONNEL PUMPHREY: San Diego State, 5082 169 4.48. Three-year starter from Las Vegas, NV. The NCAA’s all-time leading rusher. Two-time Mountain West player of the year. Three times first-team all-conference. The original pinball wizard can bounce off tacklers and change gears like a NASCAR driver. A confident back who knows his strengths and limitations. Runs behind his pads. He doesn’t need much room. Cuts full speed and gets north and south quickly. Shifty moves, great vision, and top tier running instincts. Smooth and quick. Takes the handoff deep, stutter steps, and slips through a hole. Makes defenders miss with his quick cuts and pure speed. Slides and glides. Not a fumbler despite size. Can line up anywhere. Excellent tracking the ball. Can catch the ball when covered. Plays big. Cuts linebackers and corners on blitzes. Special in the slot with his quickness. His ability to get in and out of creases in the blink of an eye can make him a dangerous open field threat in the NFL. His size and staying power may limit him to very specific roles in the league, but he can stick somewhere. Has been durable. 2016 stats: 2133 yds, 6.1 ypc, 17 TD, 27 rec, 231 yds, 8.6 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:21/30. Fourth/fifth round. (A-28 1/8, H-8 1/4, BP-5, SS-DNP).
