Devon Achane Scouting Report: Summary

Very fast and agile runner, posing a constant big-play threat. Excellent change of speed and direction, useful on the receiving end, patient, disciplined, and possesses creativity. Has played successfully on special teams and scored two touchdowns on kickoff returns during his career. His biggest problem in the NFL will be his size. His lack of power limits his use in pass rush situations, and he can't play power in situations where you need to chew up a few yards. Devon Achane can be a tandem with a more powerful running back and will come in handy for a team looking to add speed out of the backfield.
