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.
