Name: Kenneth Gainwell Position: Running Back College: Memphis Height: 5’8” Weight: 201 lbs Overall Rank: No. 126 overall Position Rank: RB9 Strengths: Vision is the key to Gainwell’s game. He’s excellent at finding rushing lanes whether it’s a one-cut downhill play or a cut-back to the weakside. He’s also dangerous in the open field as he has a feel for the location of defenders. He’s able to quickly cut off his plant foot and is able to stack moves to beat defenders. Gainwell runs with the needed urgency and patience, which is a hard trait for college runners to learn. His ability as a pass-catcher will excite teams and those who view him as a potential contributor and not star in the backfield will be happy.
Memphis has produced some good NFL RBs lately. Gainwell is probably the best of the bunch in college be up to landing spot if he is successfully in NFL.
