Rhamondre Stevenson 2021 NFL Draft Profile

Rhamondre Stevenson is one of the most interesting running back prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft. Mainly because I’m not even sure he’s a running back. Stevenson turned some heads late in his career at Oklahoma and will look to thrive in the NFL. The question is, nobody is quite sure how Stevenson translates. Here is your Rhamondre Stevenson 2021 NFL Draft profile.

Stevenson is a LOAD. The Sooners’ tailback checks in at 6-foot, 230 and feels bigger than that. The Vegas born runner doesn’t have a lengthy collegiate track record. Stevenson played at a JUCO college for a while. Even when he showed up to Oklahoma, Stevenson failed a drug test and missed six games. There are some character stuff teams will have to dig into.

Truthfully, I don’t know what he is. Part of me thinks teams are better off going to fullback route. I compared him to Le’Ron McClain and Jaylen Samuels in the running back rankings. Sure, he can function as a tailback, but do you want to hand him the keys of the backfield? Stevenson can block and even flex out as a big body catching the ball. I think there’s a chance Stevenson could turn into one of the best fullbacks in the league.

You have to give Stevenson this, in the limited opportunities he got, the man aced the test. He led the Sooners in rushing with 665 yards on just 101 carries. Better yet, his yard per carry average for the totality of his career is 7.2. That’s a hell of a mark for a big back that should be just a pure bruiser.

You can judge the book by its cover here. This is all thunder, no lightning. Stevenson comes to party bringing an axe on every attempt. There’s no finesse in his game. Stevenson is running with authority looking to hurt somebody. I’ll give him this, he’s a good pass catcher for his size but power is the name of the game here.

Stevenson cracked the top 10 of my running back list. At the high end, maybe you get someone like a Gus Edwards who had some character concerns but was always efficient. Power was the name of the game but you can’t necessarily argue with the results.
