In-play Film Analysis: 

Blake Corum is one of the more natural runners in college football. I love the patience he displays by pressing gaps/lanes to force defenders to commit in their pursuit. The game moves slowly for him—he can identify moving parts to adjust his run path. 

Corum uses his outstanding cutting ability to evade oncoming defenders. He has good spatial awareness and a feel for nearby defenders. Corum does a good job following his blocks with patience and discipline to get what is blocked. Also, he can create yardage on his own with his vertical and lateral cuts that send him to daylight. He is scheme-versatile with experience in both zone and gap running concepts. Corum has shown promise as a pass-catcher but was never featured enough for a confident projection. 

Despite having the leverage advantage and stout frame, Corum does not run with devastating power. He is not going to punish defenders by setting the tone with physicality. I have concerns that he can be an effective short-yardage/goal-line running back at the next level. I believe he would be best paired with a bigger more physical back in a stable. Corum lacks the top-end speed to consistently generate explosive plays or be a reliable home-run threat at the next level.
