Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Has a little shake-and-bake to him to extend runs, keeping his legs pumping through contact.

Langford really shines in areas where most young backs struggle like pass protection, reliability in the screen game and also the ability to get stronger and better as the game goes on.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal ankle flexibility to be overly shifty. Takes a moment to get back up to full speed after gearing down and needs to show better patience with a bad habit of running into his own blockers.

Although he's probably the third-best back in the Big Ten behind Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah, Langford is the type of prospect that grows on you and the gap behind Gordon and Abdullah isn't as big as most think.

--Dane Brugler (7/28/14)

Player Overview

Langford emerged as not only the most reliable and efficient back, but also the best all-around player at the position in 2013. Langford finished the 2013 season with 1,422 rushing yards and 18 rushing scores, six more than Bell had in 2012. He runs low to the ground with excellent pad level and energetic feet, getting the most out of every carry with a workhorse mentality.
