Overview:

Folston had a good career at Notre Dame, where he had 343 rushes, for 1712 rushing yards, 11 rushing touchdowns, along with 31 receptions, for 291 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. He is a good blocking back, he has good vision, he has good speed, and he is a tough runner. He also is tough to take down, he is a decent pass catching back, he is also an explosive play maker, and he can lineup at running back, plus in the slot as a wide receiver, making him very versatile. He is an undersized back, and he has had injury issues in the past at Notre Dame. With that said, I view Folston as a day 3 pick, likely in the later part of day 3.
