4. D’Onta Foreman, Texas (6-0, 245) — Film Grade: 80.5
Quick Take: Foreman is a bruiser, and there’s no other way to put it. He lowers his shoulder, crashes downhill, and punishes defenses. He earned every one of his 2028 rushing yards in 2016. Surprisingly though, for a back his size he is also very light on his feet, can change direction quickly, and shows tremendous short-area burst. Similarly to Eddie Lacy, Foreman is a big back who can plant his foot and make a quick cutback to take the run for a big gain. He’s fun to watch if you like smash-mouth football. However, the biggest issue with Foreman’s game is it’s still not complete. He graded out poor in pass protection and he was near non-factor in the passing game. He may not see the field much on third downs in his first year in the NFL. Hopefully, under the right coaching this part of his game will get shored up.
