Sony Michel’s Draft Stock is on the rise after his phenomenal postseason performance
According to a report by NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah, Georgia senior running back Sony Michel improved his draft stock more than any other draft eligible player this postseason.
Jeremiah asked five experts which player improved their stock the most and three of them said Michel.
This past postseason, Michel rushed for 320 yards against Oklahoma and Alabama combined. On the biggest of stages, Michel did not disappoint, and the NFL will certainly take notice.
I reached out to 5 NFL personnel executives and asked them the following question: Which prospect helped himself the most with his postseason performance? Here are their answers.
Executive 1: “Michel is a three-down back. I knew more about the other running backs coming into the bowl season, but I thought he stood out the most during the playoff. I was very impressed.”
Executive 3: “I think it might be Sony Michel. He was highly thought of before but he separated himself from Chubb and showed how talented he really is in those two bowl games.”
Executive 5: “I thought Michel was dominate on the big stage. There’s nothing he can’t do as a runner. He plays the game with passion and maybe the outcome of the championship would’ve been different if they didn’t stop using him in the fourth quarter.”
