Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Runs low to the ground with excellent pad level and energetic feet to get the most out of every touch. Langford is a workhorse type with a hard-nosed, no-nonsense style of running the ball, getting stronger as the game progresses. 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 (9/5/14)

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.

09/29/2014 - Michigan State's record-setting offense didn't score 73 points again, but it looked like it might in its final Big Ten tuneup on Saturday. The No. 9 Spartans (3-1) settled for a 56-14 rout of Wyoming, completing their most explosive first four games in school history with a 50.3-point average. "Very impressive start of the game by our offense," Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. "Really, the first six drives, every drive in the first half, resulted in a touchdown. You have 42 in the first half, tough to overcome that. Defensively, came up with three turnovers and a blocked kick, which is like a turnover, so big momentum swings in the football game."

Jeremy Langford rushed for 137 of the Spartans' 533 total yards, and Connor Cook was 6-for-8 through the air for 109 yards and two touchdowns, helping Michigan State score more than 50 points in back-to-back games for the first time since 1978. "We've all been with each other so long, we have the timing," Cook said of an offense that came together in October last year and helped Michigan State finish 13-1. "It shows in games." The Spartans have scored 174 points in three home games heading into a visit from unbeaten No. 21 Nebraska next Saturday night. - AP Sports
