When sculpting the body composition of the ideal running back prospect, Peyton might be the mold. This rock solid, muscular athlete carries 190 pounds on a compact frame capable of withstanding punishment and breaking tackles. He actually is more of an elusive runner than a pure power guy. He has great feet and the quicks to make defenders miss at the line of scrimmage and in the open field. A short-stepper with very sharp and controlled cutting, change-of-direction and overall lateral movements. Peyton's ability to read linebacker flow on the run and patience as a runner are at a premium level, and his experience toting the rock is quickly apparent. He sees and picks up hidden yardage with great cutbacks often through tight seams. Has both a cutback/pick-and-slide style, but will jitterbug at times in traffic looking for big play that won't be there at the next level. He has good burst out of his cuts to get downhill or bounce to the corner, and is a polished inside and outside zone runner. Makes a sharp upfield plant on stretch and cut runs. This is still a strong runner though who will break tackles when needed to. He slips countless tackles with his shiftiness and strong upper-body. Shows he will finish as well and pull through leg tackles and fall forward. Runs with proper lean and he's more of an every-down guy who can get the inside and outside yards as well as block and catch the football. His ability to avoid direct shots will prove favorable for that type role and with increased lower-body power we feel the physically ready, lower-ceiling Peyton will be very productive early in his career. He reminds us a lot of a young Christian McCaffrey and possesses all the skills you want on offense in a running back.
