FAB 4. A Trio Of Three-Down Backs For The Bucs In 2018

The Bucs could use a three-down, all-purpose running back to fuel their ground game in 2018. Next year’s draft happens to have several candidates, but there are a trio of backs I’ve become quite fond of in doing my scouting research – Georgia’s Sony Michel, San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny and Auburn’s Kerryon Johnson.

Let’s start with Georgia’s Sony Michel, who has split time with Nick Chubb, one of Georgia’s greatest running backs. Chubb is a four-year starter that is currently second on the Bulldogs’ all-time rushing list with 4,522 yards, trailing only Herschel Walker’s 5,259 yards. Yet Michel has had a heck of a four-year career, too, and will leave as Georgia’s third-best leading rusher. He currently has 3,314 yards with the SEC Championship Game and at least one bowl game or playoff game yet to play. This season, Michel topped other Georgia legends, including Gurley (3,285), Garrison Hearst (3,232), Lars Tate (3,017), Knowshon Moreno (2,734) and Rodney Hampton (2,668).

Chubb is a fine player in his own right, bouncing back with another 1,000-yard season two years removed from a torn ACL. He’s shown more burst and toughness this year than he did a year ago, but with only 29 receptions in his four-year career, Chubb is more of a two-down runner than he is a complete weapon.

The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Michel is a tough, physical runner that loves to put his shoulder pads into defenders’ chests and run them over, and he has the speed and agility to outrace and juke them, too. Michel had 10 100-yard games despite being a primary backup. He’s also a dynamic pass catcher with 58 catches for 542 yards and five career touchdowns, and that’s the value Michel will bring to the NFL – the ability to play on all three downs.

While Chubb had 15 plays of 40 yards or more, including five plays of 65 yards or more in his four years at Georgia, Michel’s breakaway speed produced 12 plays of 40 yards or more, including three of 65 yards or more – despite 125 fewer touches than Chubb.

Georgia RB Sony Michel – 5-11, 215 – Senior
2017: 124 carries, 903 yards (7.3 avg.) 13 TDs
2016: 152 carries, 840 yards (5.5 avg.) 4 TDs
2015: 219 carries, 1,161 yards (5.3 avg.) 8 TDs
2014: 64 carries, 410 yards (6.4 avg.) 5 TDs

2017: 3 catches, 17 yards (5.7 avg.) 0 TDs
2016: 22 catches, 149 yards (6.8 avg.) 1 TD
2015: 26 catches, 270 yards (10.4 avg.) 3 TDs
2014: 7 catches, 106 yards (15.1 avg.) 1 TD

Michel has a slashing running style about him with instant acceleration through the hole. He has great athleticism and balance and insane ability to make defenders miss. Michel runs with great determination and has both a strong upper and lower body that allows him to bust through would-be tacklers. He’s a decisive runner that doesn’t dance behind the line of scrimmage. Michel’s feet never stop moving whether he’s running or catching the ball, and he literally fights for yardage, refusing to go down with initial contact. He’s a more physical Alvin Kamara-type runner.

In his third game at Georgia, Michel carried the ball 10 times for 155 yards and scored three touchdowns, including a 75-yarder, in a 66-0 win over Troy in 2014. During his sophomore year, Michel had to take over for Chubb when he tore his ACL and produced four 100-yard games down the stretch against Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech. In the cross-state rivalry, Michel ran for 149 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries (6.2 avg.) in a 13-7 win. He then toted the rock 20 times for 85 yards (4.3 avg.) and a touchdown in a 24-17 win over Barkley and Penn State in the Taxslayer Bowl.

Chubb’s return to action in 2016 meant fewer touches for Michel, but he still responded with three 100-yard games, including 133 yards in a win at South Carolina, 127 yards and a touchdown in a win at Kentucky and a career-high 170 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries (8.9 avg.) in a 28-27 loss to Georgia Tech. Michel ended the year with 87 yards and a touchdown on the ground, in addition to two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown through the air in a 31-23 win over TCU in the Autozone Liberty Bowl.

This year, Michel rushed for 150 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries (12.5 avg.) against Vanderbilt, had nine carries for 86 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries (9.6 avg.) against Missouri, six carries for 137 yards (22.8 avg.) and two touchdowns, including a season-long 74-yarder, against Florida, and 12 carries for 87 yards (7.3 avg.) and three touchdowns in a win against Kentucky.

Penny, whom I have written about extensively in SR’s Fab 5 this season, might be the most explosive back in the country. Having played behind NCAA all-time leading rusher Donnell Pumphrey for three years, Penny burst onto the scene this year as a full-time starter for the first time in his career, and is the nation’s leading rusher with 2,027 yards and 19 touchdowns on 275 carries (7.4 avg.).

Penny was still able to rush for 1,000 yards as Pumphrey’s backup last year, setting the stage for an incredible senior campaign. While being used as a change-of-pace back behind Pumphrey, Penny honed his return skills and now has an NCAA record-tying seven kick return touchdowns and one punt return score in his Aztecs career.

San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny – 5-11, 220 – Senior
2017: 275 carries, 2,027 yards (7.4 avg.) 19 TDs
2016: 135 carries, 1,005 yards (7.4 avg.) 11 TDs
2015: 61 carries, 1,161 yards (6.0 avg.) 4 TDs
2014: 2 carries, 22 yards (11 avg.) 0 TDs

2017: 18 catches, 142 yards (7.9 avg.) 2 TDs
2016: 15 catches, 224 yards (14.9 avg.) 3 TD
2015: 8 catches, 120 yards (15 avg.) 1 TD

Penny has 15 100-yard games over the past two seasons, including six 200-yard games. The Norwalk, Calif. native has had four 200-yard games in his last four outings, and has scored 11 touchdowns (nine rushing, two returns) over that span. Penny needs just 107 yards in San Diego State’s bowl game to break Pumphrey’s single-season school record of 2,133 rushing yards that was set last year.

Penny is an angry runner, and breaks tackles with his helmet, shoulder pads and legs. His thick thighs produce instant acceleration and he’s capable of hitting long runs from anywhere on the field. Penny has tremendous vision, makes cuts at full speed, doesn’t get caught from behind, and has some nice open-field juking ability. Penny catches the ball cleanly, is a tough goal line back that puts his head down and drives for yards, always keeps his feet moving. He’s a prototype NFL running back in the mold of a faster Kareem Hunt.

Penny had a school record 429 total yards in a win against Nevada this year, rushing for 222 yards and added a 100-yard kick return touchdown and a 70-yard punt return for a score, too. Penny also had a 70-yard touchdown called back on a penalty. His performance against the Wolfpack eclipsed Marshall Faulk’s previous San Diego State record of 422 total yards. Penny became the first player in FBS history to have two rushing touchdowns, a punt return touchdown and a kick return touchdown in the same game.

In an upset win at Arizona State earlier this year, Penny had 353 all-purpose yards with 216 yards rushing, including a career-long 95-yard touchdown, a 99-yard kick return score and a 33-yard receiving TD. While his 18 receptions this year are a career high, the Aztecs don’t throw the ball much and Penny hasn’t been able to showcase his natural receiving ability enough.

But what he has showcased is his breakaway speed. Penny has produced 15 plays of 40 yards or more in his career, including nine plays of 60 yards or more on offense this year. He’s also had a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown this season, and kick returns of 99 and 100 yards during his senior campaign, too.

Johnson has rushed for 1,276 yards and 17 touchdowns during his junior season at Auburn, while catching 21 passes for 187 yards and two scores. Last year, Johnson rushed for 895 yards on 182 carries (4.9 avg.) and 11 touchdowns while playing behind Kamryn Pettway, who led the Tigers with 1,224 yards on 209 carries (5.9 avg.) and scored seven touchdowns.

With Pettway dealing with injuries this year and rushing for just 305 yards, Johnson has moved into the starting lineup and led Auburn to the SEC Championship Game and a possible playoff spot if the Tigers can beat Georgia again on Saturday. Despite missing two games with injuries this year, including a 14-6 loss to Clemson in Week 2, Johnson has produced eight 100-yard rushing games, including a 204-yard, three-touchdown effort in a 44-23 win over Ole Miss. He has 11 100-yard rushing games in his Auburn career.

Johnson doesn’t have the top-end speed that Michel and Penny possess, evidenced by just five offensive plays of 40 yards or more in his career with the longest being a 60-yard touchdown against Georgia Southern this year. Yet, Johnson is only a junior whereas Michel and Penny are seniors. If he stays for his senior season, which isn’t likely, who knows how many more long runs and receptions he’ll rip off?

Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson – 6-0, 212 – Junior
2017: 250 carries, 1,276 yards (5.1 avg.) 17 TDs
2016: 182 carries, 895 yards (4.9 avg.) 11 TDs
2015: 52 carries, 208 yards (4.0 avg.) 3 TDs

2017: 21 catches, 187 yards (8.9 avg.) 2 TDs
2016: 17 catches, 125 yards (7.4 avg.) 0 TDs
2015: 14 catches, 159 yards (11.4 avg.) 0 TDs

Johnson has a hard-charging running style, some wiggle and the ability to go north-south out of the Wildcat formation or as an off-set back out of shotgun. He has good hands and can make downfield catches on wheel routes. Johnson isn’t afraid of contact and is an absolute brute. He does a great job following his blocks, puts his pads down to power through tackles, shows a nice stiff arm, a good burst, a sweet stutter step and he’s a strong slasher once he sees daylight. Johnson reminds me of another great Auburn back that played in Tampa Bay, Cadillac Williams, in his prime before his knee injuries.

In a huge, 40-17 upset over top-ranked Georgia, Johnson rushed for 167 yards on 32 carries (5.0 avg.) and caught two passes for 66 yards, including a 55-yard touchdown. In last week’s 26-14 upset of Alabama in the Iron Bowl, Johnson rushed for 104 yards and one touchdown against the stingy Crimson Tide defense, caught three passes for 21 yards and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass before leaving with a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter. He’s listed as questionable for the SEC Championship Game.

Johnson has become quite the goal line quarterback, completing 4-of-4 passes for 14 yards and two touchdowns over the last two years.

If Tampa Bay can wind up one with one of these multi-purpose runners next year and get some better blocking upfront, the Bucs running game can make a massive turnaround.

  3. I believe if Schiano walked in on that shower scene he would’ve put a stop to it. No way Schiano the man, father turns his back on something like that. I didn’t like him as a coach, like I don’t like Koetter as a coach. However I don’t know any of these players, or coaches personally so when I post a comment it’s strickly from what I see on the field. I hope all fans feel the same way, and hate this guy, or that guy should never be part of the conversation.

  4. Truth. What Tennessee and it’s “fans” did to Greg Schiano is as disgusting and shameful a smear I’ve seen in some time. Say what you will about Greg, and I happen to believe he’s a good man who deserved another year when he was fired for the awful St. Lovie, but no man should have been subjected to this kind of public personal attack on his character.

    Frankly it will be my pleasure to see Tennessee lose for years to come for this disgraceful outrage. F’ em.

  5. Scott good Article. I don’t know if we can afford to pick up a RB until the 3rd round as we need OL and DL help too; probably 2 DE’s. I’ll keep preaching the need to trade a player or two where we have depth in order to pick up more draft picks. We have done a poor job in Free Agency and that hasn’t help either, but Coaching is where the main problem lies. I think Licht gets a one year pass. I still can’t get around the thought the Glazer’s would have anything to do with Gruden. I hope they try another up and coming NFL DC or OC. Just my thoughts.

  6. I love Rashaad Penny. If we take a DE in the 1st round, do you think he will be available in the 2nd round? With all those great stats it seems like he could go in the 1st round. If he falls to us in the 2nd round i would take him in a heartbeat. We could really use a runner like him and hes great at returning punts/kickoffs. Kerryon Johnson looks good too. Whatever happens in the draft we need to take a dynamic all around RB in the 2nd or 3rd.

  7. Enjoyed the RB analysis. Doug’s history and other than Barber we don’t have a future. I agree with Horse we can’t lose focus on Edge Rusher an OL, but if a decent back falls or last till RD3 we need to go after him. Things still a little unsettled about where we will pick. I believe we need to win often and well for our last five games and evaluate everyone on the roster.

    Call me old school but I don’t want Gruden. The Buc’s don’t have a Tony Dungy built team that he can win with. If he wants back into coaching I am sure owners like Jerry Jones will be interested. While I believe Koetter and Smith need to improve I can’t see another 2 yr Turnover. No one will want to have anything to do with Glazers and The Buc’s. I say build on what we have, add a few more pieces and be patient.

    Every play is designed to score with, players who drop passes, miss assignments, and draw penalties cause questions regarding play calling. QB’s can audible out of plays if the defense shifts, so play calling is not totally on Koetter. I have no problem with him assigning it to another coach, but I am tired of everyone blaming him for player mistakes.

  8. Okay, I’ll bite on the Schiano is a good man deal. One thing I’ve learned as a man is that the best thing someone can say about you is that you’re a good man. That means a lot. With that being said, just because you’re a good man, doesn’t make you a good coach, or head coach for that matter. I’ve said it many times, I love Monte Kiffin because he knew his role, he knew what he was good at, and he did it at the top of the game for 10 years right here.

    Can’t say I was thrilled with Fab 1 but I guess I can see how you had to get that off your chest…

    The best was the piece on my man Stocker. Loved that kid and I hope he gets to where he wants to be after playing.

  9. Kind of off-topic, but I’m still trying to figure out why you use the words “serviced by” and not “sponsored by” when referring to DGD. I assume that you are referring to the 33rd definition of “service” which is “to supply with aid, information, or other incidental services”. Anyhow, even with that, I always enjoy reading them.

  11. Showing your politics again, Scott:

    “his accusers were slut-shamed by the media that was sympathetic to Clinton’s politics”

    That is absolute BS. Those women were not slut shamed by the media as I recall. That’s the thing with you right wingers — you’re always making up #FakeNews about how the “liberal” media makes excuses for democrats or liberals that they actually don’t. If anything, it’s the right wing outlets that are the most shameful in their acceptance of bad behavior (sexual or other criminal) based on politics — FuxNuze had Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly… They’ve ignored Don Dump’s extensive sexual misbehavior and I’m betting they’ve gone pretty easy on Roy Moore (I can’t stand to watch to find out)… You right wingers are living in a fantasy world. Also, why was this inserted into the story anyway, AS ITS OWN PARAGRAPH? No bias here, right? No spin zone? Hahahaha, right… And don’t mistake anything I’m saying as dismissing Clinton’s escapades as president… But, ya know, he was president 17 years ago… And we now have a serial predator as president and it goes uncommented by right wingers like you. Seriously. Blinders on. Bet FuxNuze doesn’t mention Trump’s many accusers (they’re all lying, right?)… Keep spewing nonsense.

    • I do find it funny that Scott throws his politics around, some intentionally, some unintentionally, then gets outraged when Gerald McCoy or Mike Evans expresses any political thought.

      So it’s cool if you let your right-wing politics show on a Bucs site but if an NFL player like Mike Evans or Gerald McCoy does the same, and particularly one you don’t agree with you find ways to express your “ALL CAPS” opinion.

      It’s the height of hypocrisy Scott, but that’s your right. Just like it’s Gerald’s and Mike’s right to say and stand for things you don’t agree with as their views are no more relevant to playing football for an NFL team as your views covering it for an NFL covering publisher 😉

  12. ON football matters… If Schiano learned (1) how to deal with media more cooperatively, and (2) how to not be a constant hardass, I think he’ll end up being a very successful HC with a top D1 program. Could end up back in the pros, and I think he will succeed. He was dealt a bad hand here and then made some of his own mistakes… But remember how great his run defense was in year 1 with the Bucs… There were some positives going on that got washed out with some of the Freeman distractions, in addition to MRSA, and some questionable draft picks by Dominik. Would’ve been better to keep him around another year than to hire Lovie Smith. but we get Licht out of that change and he’s a better GM than Dominik… Anyway, hindsight…

    • Couldn’t agree more. I wasn’t a big fan of Schianos offense but our defense was hard hitting and smart. Problem was they were always on the field and got gassed by an inconsistent offense that hated each other in the locker room. Remember that Carolina game where we held them to 12 total rushing yards as a team?? Carolinas gonna run ALL OVER this team this year, just watch.

      Under Schiano, we were tough. We hit you in the mouth. I didn’t like the Goldson pick up, but for Christsake the man talked REVIS into coming here. The right kind of players bought into Schiano. But he had a team full of brats.

      But the past is the past. Looking ahead, I really hate Koetter at this point because he makes so many dumb fuck coaching decisions but I think he needs a full year as just a head coach. Being an offensive coordinator was his “thing” but he needs to grow and take the next step, just as he’s asking his players to do. I think he’d be a good HC. You could see the players actually liked him and trusted him during that won streak last year. But he tainted that trust by trying to do too much. He can win it back by stepping back and letting the assistants do their jobs.

      I also think we should keep Licht. Come on Glazers, thus past offseason was the best hype and feeling we’ve had for Tampa in a long time. Even Raheem Morris’ 10-6 “youngry” team didn’t win over the national media like we did last year. We were darlings. It’s time to trust the guys that put you in the spot, and get rid of the ones who are actively destroying it (Mike Smith, Jay Hayes, whoever the hell our defensive backs coach is)

      Clean house on the defense and bring in someone aggresive. Mike Smith talked all offseason about multiple looks. Apparently he only meant multiple by switching between cover 4 and cover 2. He only started cover 1 and 3-3-5 once the fans started calling out plays from the sidelines lol.

  17. Good timing on featuring R.B.’s in this Fab 5. With the college championships this weekend you gave us a clue on who to watch for. I like college backs who split carries with other backs during their careers. Like Michel, and Chubb. I like the Penny kid because he faced lesser competition therefore I believe has less wear, and tear. I’d stay away from Johnson from Auburn. The kids shoulder is messed up. He shouldn’t have continued against Bama, and I don’t think he should even play this weekend, but will, and do further damage. As for our stable of backs, I would’ve moved on from Martin, Sims, Quiz before this season. I got hammered for stating such, a lot of Martin love out there, but in a R.B. loaded draft how good would Kamara look right about now? So Martin is washed up, why not cut him, and bring in some P.S. backs for try outs? Do we even have one on our own P.S.? If not, further proof Licht is not a good G.M..

  19. Are memories really that short…Greg SchiaNo a good coach? Have we forgotten:
    – “half time is for a taking a dump not making adjustments”
    – his ‘strategy’ (a term I use incredibly loosely) of throwing around time outs whenever he felt like have another conversation, leaving us constrained in time management game after game
    – whatever the heck he was doing with Freeman…I don’t care how big of a mess Freeman may or may not have been, SchiaNo ended it on the field that’s for sure – taking any chance of Dominik trading him for something off the table and leaving us with Glennon
    – his cadre of 27 assistants and whatever the heck they were supposed to be doing – what a waste.
    – you mentioned his draft input and then somehow totally excuse it…why?
    – his record…as Love said, “you are what your record says you are”…a bad coach!

  20. I feel like the RB question is being discussed backwards. Fixing the oline will suddenly make all our RBs look so much better when they’re not being hit in the backfield. I don’t think Martin has any lack of talent whatsoever or anything like that.

    Would have rather seen a column focused more on scouting Oline than RBs in that sense.

    As an earlier writer noted, you speak of the women who were “slut shamed” by Clinton’s staff, who, as almost everyone will rememberby a tight group of well funded right wing groups intent on destorying President Clinton.
    Yet you conveinently forget about the mass of women who accused your glorious leader, the traitorous racist Donald Trump, of sexually assaulting them.
    Not only that, but Trump actually admitted to it, but also peeping on young underage teenage girls during his beauty contests.
    What a big fat pig.
    I also found it the height of irony, the moralistic Ken Starr was eventually run out of Baylor for ignoring and trying to cover up the rapes of coeds on his campus by players on the football team.
    Now on to Schiano.
    I never believed Schiano ruined Freeman’s career because basically there was nothing in it for him but the unemployment line if he did.
    Freeman ruined Freeman’s career from what i heard from a couple of reliable sources in your industry by partying way to much. So much that the Bucs were so concerned about it they went out and drafted Glennon.
    I remember the Jets game where the Bucs were penalized twice for delay of game on the same series because the headset in the helmet was broken.
    Schiano, for some strange reason, was blamed for that whereas I blamed Freeman who also missed the team bus to the game that morning I believe.
    He must have been n one hell of a bender that Freeman couldn;t een call a QB sneak to keep from getting a penalty.
    As for wanting a RB that is just fine but like most people believe out here, where is he going to run to if the current OL stays in place.
    This is the smae logic you used two years ago when you were dancing around calling for the Bucs to draft Hargreaves.
    The game starts in the trenches.
    I don;t care if you have four Deion Sanders and Jim Brown in the backfield, it isn’t going to mean spit if the QB has all day to throw while drinking a cup of joe and defenders are hanging on to the RB when he gets the handoff.

  22. I have to agree with Matador, Mark, please keep your uber right wing philosophy off the sports section so I don’t have to spend time setting the record straight.
    You speak of the women who were slut shamed by Clinton’s staff, but conveniently leave out they were all recruited ad funded

    by a tight group of well funded right wing groups intent on destorying President Clinton.
