Terrance Ganaway

Baylor

Ht. 6-0 Wt. 240

Strengths:  Terrance Ganaway’s speed is underrated considering he weighs 240 pounds.  While he won’t make his living running away from defenders in the open field he is a deceptive athlete that can break the big run.  He is always falling forward and his legs are always churning for extra yards.  Ganaway has very little wear and tear on him so durability shouldn’t be an issue at the next level.

Weaknesses:  Ganaway’s hands won’t permit him to be a three down back in the NFL.  He won’t create any extra yards as an athlete and has little game experience as this season was his only as a full time starter at Baylor.   Ran out of the spread option a lot at Baylor, so he’ll have to be able to pick up an NFL system.

Bottom Line:  Ganaway has some value as a two-down back in a back by committee role to begin his career.  His ability to break big runs at his size should find him a spot earlier than most expect in the draft.  He’s also a high character guy that graduated in December with a degree in General Studies.  At best he’s Brandon Jacobs minus the issues and at worst you are getting a solid goal line back.

Draft Projection:  Ganaway is probably a fifth round pick at this point but I see him going as high as the late third round come April.
