Photo Courtesy of Mark Runyan at Football Schedule Mike Gillislee is operating under the radar to a certain degree, but scouts are endeavoring to raise the Florida back’s profile in the lead up to the draft. NFLDraftScout.com has him ahead of RotoViz favorites like Zac Stacy, Latavius Murray, and Knile Davis. Many scouts have him ahead of Le’Veon Bell, the poster child for my Agility Score concept. Gillislee is a tough runner and willing blocker who appeals as a throwback option. Unfortunately, there are plenty of hard-nosed college players who don’t project athletically to the next level. Basically, if you want to have success in the NFL, you need to fit one of the three draftable profiles.
