Bio: 
Starting fullback who received five carries for 18 yards as a senior, the only five carries of his career. Combined to catch 12 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown in 2015 and 2016.
Pos: 
Hard-working lead blocker with solid size and speed. Athletic, displays terrific short-area quickness and gives effort in all areas. Quick out to the second level, squares into linebackers and disrupts them from the action. Displays enough speed to create separation and room for his ball carrier to run. Instinctive, displays outstanding vision and plays with a nasty attitude. Strong and turns defenders from the action. Runs with good lean, falls forward when tackled and works runs. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Neg: 
Was never a big part of the Georgia offense. Lacks long speed.
Analysis: 
Payne is an underrated fullback prospect who has been ignored in the scouting community but has definite potential at the next level as a three-down player.
