NFC RB coach calls Jordan Howard a ‘sack of potatoes’ back

One player that seems to be a polarizing figure for the 2016 NFL Draft is Indiana running back Jordan Howard. Some teams see him as a big time back that could play almost immediately, while others think he could end up being a dud at the next level.

One coach that believes the latter has likely seen his fair share of running backs in the NFL. According to’s Lance Zierlein, an NFC running backs coach had some pretty disparaging remarks to make about him.

“I just started watching him today and I know why you like him, but he’s what I call a ‘sack of potatoes’ back,” the coach told the website. “He’s going to keep getting dropped like a sack of potatoes in this league with that running style.”

That is a pretty harsh comparison for the young man who had a pretty improbable 2015 season after transferring in from UAB after their football program was canceled. He was third in the Big Ten in rushing yards with 1,213, while adding on nine touchdowns during the 2015 season.
