2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Shock Linwood, RB, Baylor

2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Shock Linwood, RB, Baylor

By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74)
Tonight we look at a player who will be draft eligible, but at this point there has been no indication on whether or not he has any interest in coming out early. These notes are based purely on previous year’s film, and will precede the full scouting report that you can find here later this season. Here are my notes:

Shock Linwood. 5’9. 195 Lbs. RB. (RS Junior). Baylor

The Positives

1) Linwood has good speed

2) Has very good field vision

3) Has excellent cutting ability

4) Runs hard, often breaking tackles 

The Negatives

1) At 5’9 195 Lbs. he is a bit undersized for a typical NFL RB.

Shock Linwood is one of the most electrifying players in the country. He runs very hard, running through would be tacklers. He also has good speed, with the ability to outrun the defense at times. His ability to see the field is very good, and add to that the ability to make sharp quick cuts, and an effective juke move to leave would be tacklers grasping nothing but air, and you have a player who can make plays all over the field. His size may be a concern for some NFL teams, but he is the same height as Duke Johnson (though 15 Lbs. lighter) whom was drafted in the 3rd round in the 2015 draft. Despite his size, he is very solid at picking up the Blitzer to keep his QB upright. Last season he ran for 1,252 yards and 16 TD’s as a sophomore. He plays in a spread offense so he gets lots of open space that he may not always see at the NFL level, but he has the skillset to succeed in any type of offense. If he has another good season this year, and decides to declare for the draft, I would expect him to go no later than the 3rd round, and quite possibly higher.
