James Lott's Prospect Breakdown

Strengths: Big, athletic RB with rare blend of speed and power.  Phenomenal power in legs and trunk which shows on his balance through contact.  Runs hard with low pad level to shred arm tackles.  Runs out of the I formation, shredding tackles and has speed to house it from anywhere on the field. Decisive runner who will put his foot in the ground and get downhill quickly.  Will press the LOS to set up overrunning Linebackers.  Gets downhill with knee bend and good forward lean, staying small through the hole.  Will sink and explode into tackler or side-step and jet, causing hesitation in downhill safeties with their approach.  Head- hunter who rarely looks to run out of bounds and not finish runs.

Bottom Line: Ran for 1139 yards and 20 touchdowns as a sophomore. Was named District 17-6A Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 2018

Grade: 9.25
