James Conner, RB, Pitt

James Conner - 2017 NFL Mock Draft

The Goods:

School: Pittsburgh Position: RB Class: Junior Height: 6-2 Weight: 240 lbs Projected Draft Round: 2-4

Quick Quote:

“Conner was one of the premier RBs in college football in 2014, breaking a whopping 28 tackles that season. After being declared cancer-free following his battle with Hodgkin lymphoma, Conner will be one to watch as he attempts to pick up where he left off.” –Lance Zierlein

Scouting Report:

A bruising, powerful, inbetween the tackles running back out of another era. Battled cancer and an MCL, and off the charts work ethic and intangibles. Has some shiftiness in crowded spaces, and uses leverage well to maximize any room available. Will have to test well, and be fully healthy from both the MCL and cancer. If healthy, could help a team looking for a reliable goal line presence.
