Cody Schrader, Missouri

With 1,627 yards on the ground this past season, Cody Schrader was No. 3 in the entire country in rushing yardage. He capped that off with 128 yards and a touchdown in the Cotton Bowl against Ohio State.

It's always questionable as to how a college player will take his talents to the pro level and in most cases, you expect their skills to be less obvious. Schrader is not the fastest guy so he won't be able to get to the corner as often as he did at Missouri.

But his strengths are great strengths. He runs with a low center of gravity and can power through tackles. He should be a great option around the goal line and can contribute in a big way as a receiver out of the backfield.

Schrader would work best in a complementary role inside a run-heavy offense or a team with a stout rushing attack. A place such as Baltimore or Dallas could be an ideal situation and one in which he would thrive.
