Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room evaluates Clemson RB Travis Etienne, a game-breaking NFL Draft prospect who has added functional power to his craft.
Travis Etienne is the best running back prospect Clemson has produced since C.J. Spiller. A big-play back when he entered the ACC in 2017, Etienne added muscle and developed functional power that’s important for any potential pro.
If Etienne continues growing as an athlete and a football player, we might open that filter of Clemson greats to include the likes of Terry Allen and Kevin Mack. Allen is physically more in the style of Etienne. Prior to injuries that took their toll, Allen began his career with 6,558 yards from scrimmage and 58 touchdowns during his first 5 NFL seasons—including a 1,547-yard, 21-touchdown campaign in Washington back in 1996.
Here’s your first look at what I like about Etienne’s game and where it’s heading.
For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), pre-order the 2020 Rookie Scouting Portfolio for a discounted price of $19.95 during the early-bird period of Thursday, December 5th through Friday, December 27th.
If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2019 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.
Best, yet, 10 percent of every sale is set aside until the RSP has reached its annual goal of donating $5,000 Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
