Devontae Booker’s knee checks out as ‘OK’

Former Utah running back Devontae Booker is looking to make an impact in the NFL as he is expected to be drafted in the second round in April’s Draft. It looks like he has taken some pretty big steps towards recovery when it comes to his knee.

Booker injured his knee late in the season last year and missed the team’s final three games. This injury came when he was at just under 1,300 yards on the ground and looked like he could have broken his career high of 1,512 yards.

Despite that, he certainly looks like he is doing okay as NFL scouts reported that Booker’s knee checked out to be “OK” at a recent workout.

“He’s coming off the knee, but he checked out OK,” one scout said according to NJ.com. “He’s pretty good. He runs hard. He can catch the ball. He’s solid overall.”

During just two seasons with the Utes, Devontae Booker racked up just under 2,800 yards on the ground, which would have likely been over 3,000 if not for the injury, and 21 touchdowns. He also recorded 622 yards through the air with two touchdowns.
