2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Devin Wynn, RB, Furman University

Devin Wynn Furman
Furman University running back Devin Wynn is one of the best running backs in the SoCon conference and he has all the skills and abilities to play in the NFL.

Devin Wynn is one of the most explosive running backs in the SoCon. He tore it up in 2019 amassing 1182 yards on just 179 attempts. Do you realized that is 6.6 yards per carry?

Furman has something special in the 6000, 203 pound tailback from Greensboro, Georgia. In the past two seasons for the Paladins, Wynn has a 6.5 yard per carry average. When the kid touches it twice in a row it is a first down. You have to love that as an offensive coordinator.

Last year, he finished the season with 1182 yards on just 179 attempts and scored 14 rushing touchdowns. That is not including the 13 receptions for 141 yards and 2 touchdowns he had last year as well. I am a fan of Wynn, he is a taller back with cut back ability and makes players miss.

Furman has put Wynn back on kick returns as well, and but overall in his career he has 2,544 all-purpose yards over three years. I expect him to erupt onto the NFL front in 2020. Everyone will be talking about the Furman running back after this season.

Wynn set his high school’s record in 2016 rushing for 2,343 yards and scoring 34 touchdowns. He was named the Atlanta Journal-Constitution All-State first team honors. He was a beast his entire high school career, and was also a standout basketball player and track star.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

Devin Wynn is flying under the radar right now. He won’t be for long. Wynn has speed, size and elusiveness. The Paladins struck gold when they offered Wynn. Over the last two years he has been tearing it up, averaging 6 plus yards per carry. There are not many running backs in the country that can do that. If he can do that for a third straight year, I would expect tons of NFL scouts to come into Furman to interview and review the Georgia native. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
