Dennis Digs Deeper

Was very productive once he took the starting role after Tre Mason turned pro led the SEC  with 1,608 yards and 13 TDs. He is a small compact runner who disappears behind a massive offensive line and pops out to daylight. He thrived in Auburn’s up-tempo offense which is a plus when considering how many NFL teams run a similar tempo.

Kyle’s Instant Evaluation

Cameron Artis-Payne is an interesting prospect. He is seemingly undersized and not an exceptional athlete. Landing spot will make a big difference for Artis-Payne. He will need an offensive line that can create some push. He will also need a consistent opportunity to prove he can succeed at the next level.
