2021 NFL Draft Prospect: Billy McCrary, RB, Abilene Christian University

Billy McCrary
Abilene Christian running back Billy McCrary is a former D1 transfer who looked great in 2018 before suffering a season ending injury last season. Will he come back stronger than ever?

Billy McCrary was a monster in high school and would end up at the University of Cal before transferring to Abilene Christian.

Billy McCrary has produced in his career, and as a freshman and sophomore at Cal he played sparingly, but still found a way to manage 6.5 yards per carry in 10 games coming off the bench.

As a junior, ACU had to love what they had in the former Cal Bear. McCrary rumbled for 724 yards on 88 carries and scored eight times. He also caught 28 passes out of the backfield for 191 yards ans scored twice. He was a dominate force racking up 10 touchdowns on offense. He scorched the Baylor defense too!

Last season unfortunately McCrary suffered an injury allowing him to gain a redshirt. He was hurt in the fourth game of the season against McNeese State. He had 162 yards with one touchdown on limited carries last year before getting hurt. He was granted his redshirt year and will be back this year.

What should we expect in 2020? I am glad you asked because I am expect 1000 plus yards and another 300 through receiving. McCrary is a playmaker and has elusiveness. I think when you watch his game his athleticism jumps off the film.

NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:

Billy McCrary is a player that I loved coming out last year. Unfortunately, the injury set him back, but this year in a weaker class I think he can have some success. NFL teams are going to want to see him rebound from his injury, but I am expecting a huge year from #20. If McCrary can put up big numbers in 2020, NFL teams will be all over him. He is a great pass catcher which makes him versatile and NFL teams love versatility. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner
