Our thoughts on 2022 NFL rookie Running Back, Tyler Badie.


Measurables:

  • 5’8" 197 lbs.

  • 4.45 40-yard dash

  • 34” Vertical Jump

  • 10’1” Broad Jump


"Badie is undersized but he's a twitchy, balanced ball carrier with plenty of juice."

Strengths:

  • Rocked up, muscular build and plenty of juice (like a Tarik Cohen-type)

  • Quick feet and sharp lateral cuts

  • Low center-of-gravity & strong balance help him bounce off tackles

  • A natural feel for blocking lanes and great instincts

  • Eyes and feet are tied together to go where the hole is

  • Excellent receiver and consistently catches balls away from frame

  • Only 2 drops on 107 targets the last 2 seasons

  • Hasn’t fumbled since his sophomore season

  • Gets better as games go on (6.8 YPC in 2nd half of games in ‘21)

  • Despite small stature, had great durability playing 46 games in college

  • Missouri record 1604 rush yds in ‘21, including FIVE 200-yd games

Weaknesses:

  • Played at sub-200 lbs and frame looks maxed out

  • Doesn’t have the mass/power to break tackles at the line or push the pile

  • Gambles on the big play at times instead of taking what's there

  • Can be too patient at the line leading to negative plays

  • Willing blocker but limited in pass protection due to size

  • Inconsistent vision leads to bad angles as a blocker

  • Had only 1 season as the full-time running back

  • Only special teams experience was as a kick returner

  • Was behind a very underwhelming Larry Rountree at Missouri


Drunk Thoughts


Only a single year starter at Missouri, Tyler Badie was the featured back in their zone-based run scheme. He was one of the most productive running backs in the FBS in 2021, ranking third in rushing yards per game (133.7) and second in all-purpose yards per game (161.6). He doesn't possess the ideal frame for the NFL but he does have high-end receiving skills and stayed healthy last season while commanding the second-most touches (322) in college football. Overall, Tyler Badie is undersized but he's a twitchy, balanced ball carrier with plenty of juice. His pass-catching and field vision will be an asset for the Ravens backfield, especially with JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards still on the mend.
