Benjamin Snell declares for 2019 NFL Draft
Kentucky junior RB Benny Snell declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
Snell (5'11/223) has been the definition of a workhorse during his career at Kentucky, topping 1,000 while registering double-digit touchdowns in each of his three seasons on campus. For the just-completed campaign, he logged 1,330 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Physicality is the buzzword with Snell. He's also a strong pass-blocker and scheme-versatile to boot. What to look for during his evaluating process -- Snell's athletic testing numbers later this winter are going to be crucial, as he's not the fastest nor shiftiest of backs. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller forwarded him as a potential Day 2 selection in his Dec. 7 scouting notebook. Miller, it should be noted, does not believe there is a Round 1 running back in the draft-eligible class for 2019. This seems to be a consensus view at this juncture. We'll see if things change as the process moves along on its merry way.
