Projected Round
First-year starter named consensus First Team All-American in 2016 after rushing 323 times for 2,028 yards and 15 touchdowns, with all three numbers leading the Big 12. Rushed for 681 yards and five touchdowns on 95 carries as a sophomore.
Large, powerful downhill ball carrier with a solid game. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and displays good vision. Has a burst through the hole, runs north and south and is rarely brought down by the first defender. Keeps his feet moving, moves the pile and works runs. Plays with an aggressive style, driving his shoulders through defenders and falling forward when tackled. Displays solid short-area quickness with the ability to avoid piles. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield, adjusting to the errant throw and grabbing the ball from the air with his hands.
Not a truly creative ball carrier that can run east and west. Really cannot turn the corner. Scheme-specific at the next level.
Foreman is a grind-it-out back best between the tackles as a short-yardage runner and occasional pass catcher. He’s not a player for everyone, but in the proper system he will be productive at the next level.
