Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines 2020 NFL Draft prospect Eno Benjamin, a running back from Arizona State with quality vision and judgment as well as the potential for advanced footwork.
Eno Benjamin has NFL-caliber talent. You can figure that out even if you judge Benjamin’s play against the standard of college running backs. However, the details that the casual fan/football genius will term as “nitpicking,” are often the differences between the college standard and the NFL standard that you should be cultivating to evaluate players.
In this RSP Boiler Room episode, Matt Waldman examines three plays from Benjamin’s 100-yard effort against Washington in September 2018. It’s a game that showcases a lot of Benjamin’s conceptual and technical skill for the running back position:
- Deep and incremental pressing of creases.
- Peripheral vision to identify and anticipate penetration.
- Judgment to keep his offense on schedule.
There are also opportunities for Benjamin to improve his footwork efficiency and unlock potential gains that are otherwise closed off to him. This 12-minute episode explains it all.
