Sleeper: Tarik Cohen

 

“The Human Joystick”

Running back from North Carolina A&T

5’6″  175 lbs.

40 yard dash: 4.42 SEC

NFL Comparison: Darren Sproles

What this running back lacks in size, he makes up in agility & speed.  His elusiveness is down right miraculous.  Cohen is the definition of an NFL SCAT back.  His running style compliments any RB group.  Tarik’s pass catching ability & effectiveness in the screen game will make him mostly a 3rd down back.  He fits best as a change of pace when the defense begins to tire out. Utilizing jump cuts, jukes & fluid lateral transitions without hesitation is how he dominates defenders and leaves them in the dust.

Certain NFL teams will be concerned with his size and if he can endure the punishment in a lead role.  With the abundance of talent in this years running back class he will slide to the later rounds. The earliest he could be projected is the 4th round but most likely between the 5th-7th.
