Gerrid Doaks, Cincinnati



Quote:
Overview:

Pro size with broad, thickly built lower half. Doaks can be a physical runner when he wants to be, but there are times when he gears down rather than imposing his will into contact. He lacks foot quickness and the desired field vision to find pathways and yardage on his own, so power will need to become his calling card. He looks more comfortable lining up behind the quarterback and attacking the flanks, where he has longer to process the defense and can get his momentum building. He does just enough out of the backfield and has decent pass pro potential. He might go undrafted but has enough going for him to get a look.

I've always wondered what they present to the Commish at the draft. Nothing fancy.

I sure hope not. I'm hoping for a 7th Rd. steal that makes everyone wonder how he was not taken earlier. Miami IMO needs this pick to hit. If it does, then they will be SB contenders in 2022.

Well......

Weaknesses

Too indecisive and hesitant at the line of scrimmage.
Has surprising burst for a back with his build but, despite some long runs over his career, has limited straight-line speed and can be caught from behind.
A one-speed, straight-line runner without much wiggle or shiftiness - won't make defenders miss in small areas and lacks the long speed to outrun them.
Needs to show better patience to allow blocks to develop and is too often running up the backs of his blockers. He isn't naturally explosive as a runner and lacks elusiveness in the open field.
Almost too bulky; plays stiff and tighthipped. Not an explosive player with little burst. Has suspect acceleration and needs more than a few steps to reach his top-end speed.

I don't like indecisive backs without wiggle or explosion. It shows they don't have the necessary instincts to be a very good RB. He sounds like J.Howard, actually. He and Malcolm Brown will compete for one roster spot, at most. Maybe the Patriots will cut Sony Michel now that they drafted Stevenson.

Well, if anyone posts just the negatives then it's hard to get on board with the pick, eh? Keep in mind that he is a 7th round draft pick. Anyways, it depends on who is analyzing him.

Here is SI's analysis on him.

SI.COM wrote:
* He has some absurd contact balance and power, rarely ever getting stalled at the initial point of contact.
* Playing with good toughness and balance, Doaks churns out a ton of extra yardage after contact.
* He also has quicker feet than expected, casually eluding second-level defenders in the hole. Doaks also impacts the passing game more than imagined, averaging an outstanding 14.4 yards per reception in 2020.
* The biggest question about Doaks will be durability issues, on top of being just a one-year full-time starter for the Bearcats.
* He has a good initial burst as a runner, but lacks the long speed to consistently create chunk plays.
* In the right situation, Doaks’ combination of power, contact balance, receiving ability and toughness could make him a candidate to be this year's James Robinson (Jacksonville Jaguars).

And NFL Draft Network's analysis

NFL Draft Network wrote:
* Doaks is a big and powerful back that runs angry and explodes into contact.
* He’s outstanding in pass protection and is aggressive with everything he does on the field.
* While he was underutilized as a receiving threat in college, the opportunities he did receive to catch the football produced impressive results and I believe there is some untapped potential regarding that component of his game.
* For a bigger back, Doaks has more quickness and elusiveness than expected.
* What tempers the evaluation for Doaks is the injury history and that he was never consistently a catalyst for offensive production at Cincinnati despite some really impressive flashes.
* Situation and opportunity could end up being major factors in the career Doaks ends up having, but there is a lot to like about him and what he brings to the table.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm not disappointed with the pick. Given the number of late round/FA RBs who become successful in the NFL, I am in favor of throwing lots of late round darts and seeing what sticks. I've come to believe, though, that RBs that surprise in the NFL are those that have good instincts (Gaskin, for example) rather than good measurables (Ballage). From the tape I saw, he looked a bit slow and nothing stood out, and I'm not banking on him to log a lot of carries for us.

Michael Carter is one who could surprise -- he had lots of "wow" runs, despite not being that big or that fast. He is shifty with nice instincts -- reminds me of Emmit Smith in some ways, who also wasn't big or fast.
