Broken Tackles and YAC for college RB prospects


Recommended Posts

Greg Peshek at The Sideline View has two posts, using data from STATS ICE, which give elusiveness statistics for 11 of the top RBs in this draft class. Gio Bernard, Eddie Lacy, and Jonathan Franklin stand out as having the best elusiveness numbers; the same three guys stood out to me on video as creating the most extra yards. Marcus Lattimore lands at the bottom of their rankings.

Here are their numbers, sorted by a combination of broken tackle percentage and yards after contact per attempt:

Player              Extra    BT%       YAC/attGiovani Bernard     41.7     8.15%     3.19Eddie Lacy          35.0     7.84%     2.88Johnathan Franklin  39.8     8.16%     2.71Andre Ellington     31.8     5.66%     2.59Montee Ball         27.5     4.78%     2.49Joseph Randle       27.5     4.01%     2.60Stepfan Taylor      25.4     4.97%     2.18Le'Veon Bell        24.0     4.19%     2.41Christine Michael   21.8     4.55%     1.76Mike Gillislee      17.0     2.46%     1.76Marcus Lattimore    13.9     1.40%     1.95

This mostly matches my ratings based on the games I watched on YouTube, although I had somewhat higher ratings for Michael & Lattimore and lower ratings for Bernard & Taylor.

Marcus Lattimore lands at the bottom of their rankings.

Since Lattimore wasn't 100% last year I'd be interested to see his stats for 2011.
