NFL.com analyst makes interesting NFL comp for Georgia RB Sony Michel
The Georgia Bulldogs are losing a pair of star running backs in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.
Chubb had the better college career, finishing second in SEC history in rushing yards, behind only Herschel Walker.
However, many think Michel could have the better pro career. NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah made an NFL comp for Michel, likening him to Kansas City Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt, who started his NFL career with a bang this fall:
I was a big fan of Michel during the fall and he took his game to another level in the postseason. His balance, power and pass-catching skills remind me a lot of Hunt when he was coming out of Toledo last year. Hunt was a bargain for the Chiefs in Round 3, and due to the running back depth in this class, Michel could end up being an incredible value pick as well.
Indeed, there will be plenty of talented running backs to choose from in this year’s class, so Michel could fall to Day 2 or even Day 3 of the draft.
However, whichever team picks the former Bulldog will be getting a strong runner who has all the tools necessary to compete at a high level in the NFL.
