Diamond Talk: Nate Gunn, RB, Minnesota State | NFL teams dream workhorse back

Nate Gunn the big boy running back from Minnesota State is one of my favorite players in the 2020 NFL Draft! Just call him “The Nate Gunn” because he kills opposing defenses.

Nate Gunn is one of my favorite prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. He is a grown man playing college football. The 6’2 running back weighs 220 pounds and is a horse to bring down. Last season for the Mavericks, he started all 14 games, and set the MSU single-season record with 1,705 rushing yards, and 22 touchdowns on 356 carries.

Did you see that? He was fed the ball 356 times, that kid is a workhorse in college and I feel he will be a guy that really turns heads. He reminds me of John Crockett coming out of North Dakota State a few years back but I believe he is faster.

I believe every team should have a “Nate-Gunn”, because he is a freak.  Before joining Minnesota State he did play for USD. In high school playing for Minooka High in Illinois, Gunn was a workhorse there too. he was a two-time all conference player, rushing for 3,200 yards and 35 touchdowns in high school.

Gunn started his journey at South Dakota and played one season as a Coyote rushing for 158 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman. 

In two years at Minnesota State, Gunn has carried the ball 601 times for 3,255 yards and 34 touchdowns. He averages 130.2 yards per game and I do not expect that to change in 2019. Add in the seven career receptions out the backfield and you have a problem with Gunn.

If you are looking for a workhorse running back I know a player. We call him the “Nate-Gunn” I guess you can just call him Nate Gunn though, but do me a favor and remember his name because he is special.
