#2019 NATE MCCRARY SEASON HIGHLIGHTS
Strengths: He is a physically built running back that is deceptive and very powerful. He runs with excellent vision and patience to set up his blocks and burst through the open gaps. He will not do too much dancing; he runs the ball with authority, the north and south runner looking to plow anything in front of him as he falls forward. He is explosive and can turn the corner and cut back against the grade finding the narrowest holes. He is a willing participant as a blocker and to reroute the rusher.
Weaknesses: He has poor balance, stumbles when running, and runs in an upward style. He struggles to regain his balance after the initial point of contact. He has a tremendous initial burst of speed and struggles to outrun the defense for the long runs. He will need to learn how to run effective routes out of the backfield.
