Bronson Yoder has gained some attention nationally these past few seasons earning Phil Steele All-CAA Third team honors as well as VaSID All-State Second team honors in 2021 and followed that up with All-CAA First Team Honors & VaSID All-State First Team Honors in 2022. Possesses overall good height and very good frame/build. Shows good frontside vision along with solid patience as a runner at LOS in both Man & Gap concepts. Possesses very good physical strength as well as contact balance, very good at falling forward to finish runs along with being able to run through multiple tackles on a given play. His physical strength allows him to be a formidable short yardage & goal-line back in those situations. Displays overall solid hands as a pass catcher out of backfield. Serves as a very good run & pass blocker, has size to matchup with front seven defenders & shows overall very good willingness as blocker. Runs with marginal backside/crossline vision, rarely looks to set up or use cutback lanes. Marginal footwork around LOS & in space, unable to set up & work out of traffic. Overall marginal lateral agility/COD as well, lack one cut ability to make defenders miss. Marginal speed & burst through hole into second level to provide home run plays with speed. Possesses marginal route running ability & separation quickness as receiver to be threat out of backfield in pass game.
FB/H-Back in a Zone run scheme.
Bronson Yoder lacks the ability to transition as a running back at the next level, although I personally believe his best chance at success at the next level is to put on weight & become a FB/H-Back hybrid player. Yoder’s ability as a blocker along with his power as a runner will serve him well in this potential role, and I believe he can develop into a versatile piece for a coordinator if used the right way.
