Khalil Herbert played one year at Virginia Tech after transferring from Kansas, and made the most of it, finishing with the 5th most rushing yards in FBS (right behind Senior Bowl squad mate Michael Carter). What really stands out about Herbert is his vision; he’s very good at finding a running lane, whether on runs or returns.
Every once in a while, I’ll run across a RB who reminds me of someone I’ve seen before; Herbert’s play style reminds me quite a bit of Stump Mitchell. While I wonder about his ability to succeed at the NFL level due to a lack of speed or explosiveness, he’s certainly opened eyes this week in Senior Bowl practices. His ability to return kicks won’t hurt his chances to succeed, either.
