  • Washington RB Myles Gaskin, an elusive component of the talent-laden Huskies backfield, forced 45 missed tackles last season, which ranked No. 4 among returning Pac-12 running backs.
  • The 5-foot-10, 199-pounder added another five missed tackles as a receiver out of the backfield, ranking No. 7 among that same group of backs in 2016.
  • Having forced 106 missed tackles on the ground over the course of his two-year career at Washington, Gaskin ranks No. 2 among draft eligible Pac-12 running backs in missed tackles forced since 2015.
  • Gaskin posted the No. 15 overall grade on zone runs among running backs with at least 70 zone carries, a testament to his agility and vision.
