Rookie Running Back Isaiah Spiller has Seen His Stock Rise for the 2022 NFL Draft
Isaiah Spiller attended Klein Collins High School in Spring, Texas. During his High School career, Spiller totaled 3,587 scrimmage yards and scored 53 touchdowns. Upon completion of High School, Spiller, (a four-star prospect) committed to Texas A&M University to play college football.
Isaiah Spiller appeared in 35 games for the Aggies. In those 35 contests, Spiller totaled 2,933 yards on 541 carries and added an additional 585 yards on 74 career receptions. Spiller found the end zone a total of 26 times at Texas A&M. His best season came in his 2020 sophomore season in which he totaled 1,229 scrimmage yards and scored 9 times.
Isaiah Spiller is an exciting running back prospect who has had consistent production playing in the competitive SEC. Spiller is a north/south runner who offers outstanding size and runs with excellent power.
The RotoHeat team sees Spiller as one of the first running backs to come off the board in the 2020 NFL draft. With his size and speed combination, Spiller comps out comparatively to NFL running backs like Ezekiel Elliott and Joe Mixon, at 6-feet plus and around 4.5-4.6 speed.
Spiller is your prototypical three-down back, that displays very good vision as a runner and is patient attacking the hole. He runs with excellent power and is a load to bring down in the open field. He possesses good balance and the ability to easily run through arm tackles. As a receiver, Spiller was mainly used on quick-outs, wheel routes, and screens. He displayed good hands overall and can track the ball well.
Spiller lacks elite top-end speed but he does offer some short-area quickness to plant his foot in the ground and go. At times his patient approach has led to negative gains, and he has shown to struggle to make something out of nothing. Some members of the team felt that at times he fell victim to first contact too often.
The team does feel that Isiah Spiller is one of this year’s top running back prospects and he is a rookie running back that we see coming off the board in the second or third round of the 2022 NFL draft.
