SI All-American Candidate Kamarro Edmonds Highlights and Evaluation
Prospect: Kamarro Edmonds
Status: SI All-American Candidate
Vitals: 5-foot-11, 200 pounds
Position: Running Back
School: Havelock (N.C.)
Committed to: North Carolina
Projected Position: Running Back
Frame: Compact and muscled. Broad shoulders and wide chest. Thick, solid trunk and thighs taper to tightly-wound calves. Room to add weight, but won’t play much heavier.
Athleticism: Top-tier agility. Devastating jump cut, frequently utilized between the tackles and in the open field. Adequate speed and burst. Exceptional balance due to a low center of gravity. Runs with strength and power. Comfortable pass-catcher.
Instincts: Relentless. Borderline-elite ability to make defenders miss. Frequently jukes would-be tacklers immediately after securing handoff. Good vision though could occasionally show more patience waiting for plays to develop.
Polish: Highly-advanced jump cut. Flashes stiff arm. Inexperienced pass-catcher, though sometimes ran downfield routes as a junior. Tools to be effective in pass protection. Speed and explosiveness could level up with training.
Bottom Line: Edmonds offers every attribute befitting a star collegiate back with the exception of top-end speed. As is, he projects as a multi-year starter for the Tar Heels at worst, likely contributing early. But should his speed increase given consistent strength-and-conditioning work, Edmonds could find his way to the NFL.
