Bio: 
One-year starter who rushed for 608 yards and seven touchdowns on 102 carries as a junior in 2016. Started every game as a sophomore, tallying 1,002 rushing yards on 205 carries with six rushing touchdowns and adding 23 receptions for 273 yards and two scores. Rushed for 509 yards and a touchdown as a true freshman in 2014.
Pos: 
Hard-working ball carrier coming off a disappointing season. Keeps his feet moving, works runs and uses an effective straight arm to keep defenders away. Breaks arm tackles, displays a burst of speed and flashes short-area quickness.
Neg: 
Does not show much in the way of sustained speed. Runs with an upright style. Not a truly creative ball carrier. Must improve his blocking.
Analysis: 
Yearby entered the draft despite a disappointing season and is an average-sized ball carrier with no outstanding physical aspect to his game.
