Kenny McIntosh is a former 4 star recruit out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. McIntosh had an impressive high school career and was ranked as a top 10 RB nationally in his recruiting class. McIntosh joined an already impressive Georgia RB room but he was able to make an impact quickly and played a key role in Georgia’s back to back title run. This is primarily due to McIntosh’s unique blend of size and explosiveness. At 6’0″, 216 lbs, McIntosh shows the ability to accelerate at an elite level and he has the natural instincts to complement it. His vision in the open field is superb and he shows the ability to run between the tackles. He isn’t a very physical runner but he consistently runs through arm tackles and makes the first man miss. His pad level is a little high but he typically does a good job of protecting himself and the ball when making contact. McIntosh’s receiving ability is what separates him from others in this class as it’s arguably second to none. He has soft and secure hands; McIntosh didn’t drop a single pass in his collegiate career. Consistently showed the ability to run routes out of the backfield and from the line of scrimmage both outside and in the slot. His route running does need some refinement but this is something coaching at the next level can take care of. Where McIntosh will really need to improve is his pass protection. He will have to be stronger at the point of attack, too often he tries to just stick his arms out and can get easily brushed or whiff on his assignment. His processing and patience as a runner inside the box are other areas of his game that need improvement. At times he presses too fast and doesn’t allow the play to develop. However, I believe these deficiencies to be fixable as long as McIntosh takes to coaching at the next level. Overall McIntosh is an impressive draft prospect and can be used in a variety of ways in NFL offenses. He does show lead back upside and his explosiveness should translate to the next level. McIntosh is worthy of a 4th round pick and I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes late in the 3rd. He’ll be a team’s RB2 the moment he’s drafted. His explosiveness will keep him off the sideline and make him a good piece for any offense wanting to add an instant impact player.
