Strengths Weaknesses

Like T.J. Yeldon, Drake doesn't look the part of a traditional running back, sporting a relatively lean and high-cut frame. He's a naturally elusive runner with good stop-start quickness, agility and a spin move to complement impressive acceleration.

Player Overview

Drake served as T.J. Yeldon's primary backup last season, rushing for 694 yards and eight touchdowns but he's been plagued by off-field issues (including an arrest July 5) that require further investigation from the NFL.

04/22/2015 - The biggest concern for Alabama's backfield figured to be finding enough carries to go around after four top running back prospects signed with the Crimson Tide two years ago. Dismissals, injuries and transfers have taken a toll since then, and only Derrick Henry remains from that 2013 group. The latest blow came when highly rated signee Bo Scarbrough went down with a knee injury during last weekend's scrimmage that leaves his status for next season in question. Tyren Jones had been dismissed and Altee Tenpenny also left in the offseason They joined fellow 2013 signee Alvin Kamara, along with Dee Hart, in departing the program for one reason or another the past couple of years. T.J. Yeldon also kept up the trend of 'Bama backs skipping a senior season to enter the NFL draft.

"We've had really injuries, suspensions, and lost some people at that position so what seemed like a pretty strong position for us, depth-wise, has gotten a little thin," Tide coach Nick Saban said. If Henry and Kenyan Drake can stay healthy and five-star signee Damien Harris lives up to his billing when he arrives on campus, it shouldn't be a problem. Alabama has had to replace a tailback who left early for the NFL three of the past four seasons, after all. But Drake is returning from a broken leg sustained last season and seeing some practice time at wide receiver to take advantage of his versatility. - AP Sports
