Table inside Article
Strong lower body and great balance with the football. Not going to jump off the page, but he will run through it. Great vision to anticipate the gap and see blocks develop. Doesn’t normally take tackles for loss, falls into contact and has the ability to pick up yards. Doesn’t have that next level acceleration that is needed to burst through the gap. Never obtained the true “versatile” moniker because he struggled to find separation in the passing game. Needs further athletic development and ball security.

OVERVIEW: If there's an offense looking for a throwback tailback where power and physicality are the priority, Estimé would fit perfectly. He welcomes contact both as a ball carrier and as a pass blocker. He finished as one of the rushing leaders in the ACC with 1,341 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, capping off a solid career in South Bend. His combine showcased about what you'd expect from his tape. A below-average 40-yard dash at 4.71, but outstanding lower-body strength with a 38-inch vertical and 125-inch broad jump.
