The 2017 RB Sweet 16: (2) Dalvin Cook vs (15) Donnel Pumphrey
The RotoViz Running Back Prospect Sweet 16 Tournament matches the top incoming prospects in a head-to-head March Madness style format. Various RotoViz writers break down each match-up with the winner moving on to the next round.
(2) Dalvin Cook vs (15) Donnel Pumphrey
Cook enters this tournament coming off of a lackluster performance at the NFL Combine, but he is still expected to be drafted in the first round. He was a prolific producer both in terms of market share of rush yards and receiving yards. Pumphrey comes in undersized, but is among the career leaders in rushing yards. Production really isn’t an issue at all in this matchup, and athleticism is not particularly abundant with either player.
