According to TFY Draft Insider’s Tony Pauline, NFL teams have already begun making the comparison to the former USC star. Although they have also been making the comparison not only for similarities in what both do well, but also for what they both don’t do well.
Teams are comparing Kenyan Drake/RB/Alabama to Reggie Bush after seeing his burst and explosion up close.

As strengths, Pauline specifically mentioned Drake’s “burst and explosion.” Drake is also a phenomenal asset as a receiver and returner and breaks tackles when the ball is in his hands. As for his weaknesses, Rotoworld’s Josh Norris says Drake is one of the worst pass protectors he’s ever seen at the Senior Bowl.
In 2015 Drake rushed for 408 yards on 77 carries, scoring one touchdown. He also recorded 29 receptions for 276 yards and a touchdown as a senior for the Crimson Tide.
