  • Florida RB Jordan Scarlett served as a living nightmare for opposing defenses last season, as he forced the most missed tackles (50) among Power 5 running backs with less than 200 carries.
  • At 5-foot-11, 213 pounds, Scarlett stayed up through first contact on 40.8 percent of his rushes in 2016, which ranked No. 3 in the 2018 draft class.
  • Scarlett averaged 3.75 yards after contact per attempt last season, which ranked No. 2 among draft-eligible SEC running backs with at least 150 carries.
  • Boasting an elusive rating of 104.5 in 2016, Scarlett ranked No. 2 behind LSU’s Derrius Guice among that same group of running backs.
