A VG and recent rundown from PFF on the top RBs in next years draft. The position is really loaded.
3. ZACH CHARBONNET, UCLA (SENIOR | 6-1, 220)
- 2022 Grade: 91.5
- Play Style: Bell Cow
- Initial Round Projection: Early Day 2
Unlike some others on this list, there’s no physical trait or special skill set to really rave about with Charbonnet. Rather, there’s nothing he can’t do at the running back position. He has ideal size (6-foot-1, 220 points) paired with plus athletic tools and a complete unwillingness to go down on first contact. It’s why he averaged a ridiculous 4.15 yards after contact this season on 194 carries for 1,358 yards. He also showed well in the passing game with 37 catches for 320 yards and 15 broken tackles this season.
I really like Charbonnet and he can be my second pick in the first depending how things shake out. As PSS stated, he is a bell cow RB and they are hard to come by.
