Overview:

McCaffrey had a great career at Stanford, where he appeared in 38 career games, had 632 rushing attempts, for 3922 rushing yards, along with 21 rushing touchdowns, he also had 999 catches, for 1206 receiving yards, and 18 receiving touchdowns. He attacks the holes, he has great patience, he has great speed, and can help on special teams as well. He has good vision, he is a tough runner, is so elusive, and a dynamic play maker on offense. He is versatile, as he can play running back, and line up in the slot as a receiver, and he is a dynamic return man. He is a little on the light side, and I am not sure if he is an every down back, or would do better in a rotation. With that said, I expect McCaffrey to be a top 20 pick when it is all said and done.
