RB Mikel Leshoure – Illinois

 Runningback Mikel Leshoure 2011 NFL Draft

Leshoure is a tandem runningback with the ability to play right away on third downs at the NFL level. He merits mid to late first round draft consideration due to his athletic ability, blocking ability and durability. He runs with exceptional strength and power on contact, shows outstanding toughness as an inside runner and blocker in pass protection and doesn’t fumble the ball often. He has great pass blocking awareness and production, accelerates quickly through the hole and is more of a slasher than an inside runner. Leshoure runs more like a scatback instead of using his size and strength to punish defenders.

  1. Nice report. Leshoure looks like a great talent, All-America with no fumbles in 2010. Excellent combination of power and burst. 230 with great change of direction. Like the player card and rb picture at the top, as well.
