Javian Hawkins NFL Draft Scouting Report

Name: Javian Hawkins Position: Running Back College: Louisville Height: 5’9” Weight: 195 lbs Overall Rank: No. 189 overall Position Rank: RB14 Strengths: Hawkins is tailor-made for an outside zone scheme that allows him to use good speed and short-area burst to press the line of scrimmage horizontally before stabbing his foot and getting upfield. He’s a big play machine with multiple touchdown runs over 70 yards in 2020. Hawkins understands leverage in pass protection and, despite limited opportunities, flashes some potential as a backfield receiver. Pass protection is a challenge for most backs entering the NFL, so to see a smaller guy willing to mix it up is a major plus. He may never be the bellcow back, but he’s got a well-rounded skillset with some burst that is worth getting 5-10 touches every game immediately.
