Running Back

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB#22) - 85 OVR

Key Stats:

SPD - 89

TRK - 93

AGI - 92

His name sounds like some sort of luxury car, but his running style is more similar to a dune buggy than a McLaren.

Every now and then when he gets the ball, you’d swear Derrius Guice was back on the field. Edwards-Helaire’s low center of gravity makes him a hassle to bring down, and his strength and vision allow him to hit holes in the line at full speed.

John Emery, Jr. (RB#4) - 79 OVR

Key Stats:

SPD - 90

TRK - 85

ELU - 88

Freshman running backs are typically rated below what their actual skills may suggest, probably in order to account for any bust potential in a highly touted recruit.  The 6’0”, 203 lb. halfback from Destrehan High School will not have to worry about that. Emery has the power, wiggle and speed to get through tough holes and make tacklers miss or just run them over.
