PROSPECT SUMMARY - DEMETRIC FELTON

Demetric Felton aligned at running back and in the slot for UCLA's spread offense. He is a very good athlete, as evidenced by his dynamic agility, change of direction, and body control. He’s been effective in the run game when used on the perimeter. He runs with the inclination to get outside and use elusiveness and wiggle In space. In the passing game, he is very good due to his effectiveness with the ball in his hands. He is competitive and willing in pass protection situations. He demonstrates good catching skills on screens and on check-downs. He is a good route-runner out of the backfield and linebackers have a difficult time covering him in space. He doesn’t have the prototypical size for the NFL. As a result, he will likely be a slot wide receiver or a “package guy” in the NFL.

Ideal Role: Bottom of the roster slot WR.

Scheme Fit: An offense that runs a lot of multiple wide receiver sets.
