2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah

2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74)

Tonight we continue the Running Back segment of scouting notes. These notes are based off from last year’s film, and will precede the full scouting report which will come after I view film from the upcoming season. Tonight we take a look at Devontae Booker out of Utah. Here are my notes:

Devontae Booker. RB. 5’11 199 lbs. Utah 

The Positives

1) Runs hard and Physical

2) Has the ability to break tackles

3) Has a good stiff arm

4) Has good receiving ability

5) Runs with good balance

6) Good speed

The Negatives

1) While his pass blocking is ok, it will have to improve.

2) Occasionally fumbles

Devontae Booker is one of my favorite prospects at this early point. He is a “one cut” style runner, who runs hard and physical but contains good enough speed to break a big play. He possesses the ability to catch the ball in the backfield, and he covers the ball up well but does have the occasional fumble. He transferred from a community college to The University of Utah in 2014.
