Matt Waldman:

With draft season on its way, I’m putting this up the flagpole once again.

I finished studying Maryland RB Davin Meggett’s performance against the Miami Hurricanes and I discovered that someone posted all of Meggett’s touches from this game. So I’m providing my analysis of Meggett’s performance with these highlights.

When it comes to the son of the former New York Giants star, four things stand out:

  1. Meggett has enough burst to generate positive plays as a runner.
  2. Change of direction is a talent this runner uses to a fault.
  3. He has the makings of a sound pass protector.
  4. What holds him back the most is his lack of maturity with his decision-making at the end of runs.

0:05 – Meggett’s first target came on this 1st and 10 with 14:40 in the first quarter as the single back flanking the QB’s left in the shotgun
