Rhamondre Stevenson NFL Draft Scouting Report

Name: Rhamondre Stevenson

Position: Running Back

College: Oklahoma

Height: 5’11 ⅝”

Weight: 230 lbs

Overall Rank: No. 114 overall

Position Rank: RB6

Strengths: Rhamondre Stevenson has shown impressive commitment and determination to have NFL opportunities despite his non-linear path, including taking a year off right after high school before landing as a backup at a California JUCO. Stevenson runs with every bit of power in his hips engaged and doesn’t shy from letting his pads talk on the field. In the box, Stevenson is dealing body blows. He’ll grind out tough yards play after play before he starts churning them out in chunks. Quite frankly, he wears defenders down and forces them to play a physical style all game. Contact balance is his trump card and he has an impressive knack for absorbing contact and adapting his path to match the shifting weight. Despite his style of play being more suited as a short-yardage back, there are the fundamental traits of a solid third-down receiving option. He has clean eyes that see catches to the tuck and can disassociate his hands from his feet to immediately begin getting vertical while securing the catch.

Weaknesses: Stevenson is a big back that runs like an even bigger back. He has decent play speed but he won’t be winning any foot races in the NFL. Without excellent blocking, he’s not the kind of explosive homerun hitter that takes routine carries 60 yards to the house. While the stigmas surrounding failed drug tests are changing, they haven’t changed completely. If nothing else, Stevenson will have to answer for his decision-making that led to a failed drug test and subsequent suspension, causing him to miss the 2019 Peach Bowl and the first five games of the 2020 season.

What I Love: Stevenson has a stiff arm like a heavyweight boxer. There are some shades of Derrick Henry to his game and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some ESPN highlights of him bouncing defenders off the turf in the preseason.
