[Dynasty] 2019 NFL Draft Prospects

Pro Football Focus notes that Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin was ninth last year in "breakaway yardage."

Gaskin had 633 of his 1,282 yards come on breakaway yardage, or for those unfamiliar with the term, yards on runs that goes for 15-plus yards. While that number ranked ninth among returning tailbacks, it pales in comparison to some others who had a substantially higher percentage of their yardage in these type of runs. That should be seen as a positive, as it speaks to Gaskin's ability to consistently churn out four-plus yards; something NFL teams love to see. Gaskin's lack of size (5'10/190) is going to hurt his NFL stock, but his talent gives him a shot of being a professional tailback.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert had a passer rating of 105.9 on standard passes last season.

Best mark in the Pac-12 among returning passers, according to Pro Football Focus. The outlet earlier passed along an additional juicy nugget, in that Herbert posted a passer rating of 121.6 on plays which lasted longer than 2.6 seconds. On the whole, the 6-foot-6, 225-pounder threw for 1,983 yards with a 15/5 TD/INT ratio in eight games last season. His numbers would have been more robust had he not been waylaid by a broken collarbone for a chunk of the campaign. Herbert has the potential to be drafted first overall next spring.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love averaged 4.28 yards after contact last season.

Love (5'10/184) is most well known for his bolt-of-lightning touchdown gallops, but he's also a tough runner who does not shy away from contact. Per Pro Football Focus, those 4.28 yards averaged after contact were good for ninth-most in the FBS among returning backs. So long as he can maintain his health -- he dealt with a nagging ankle injury throughout the 2017 campaign -- he'll be on the short list of Heisman candidates this fall. Love rushed for 2,112 yards and 19 touchdowns last season.
