 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  University of Arkansas running backs coach Jeff Traylor had two big takeaways from top tailbacks Rakeem Boyd and Devwah Whaley last season. They weren't highlight-reel runs, 100-yard games or great blitz pickups, although Whaley and Boyd pulled off plenty of those. Traylor's takes revolved around how Boyd and Whaley played through pain and sacrificed for the team in the face of adversity in 2018.

"The shoulder, he was just holding on," Traylor said of Boyd, who had 100-yard games against Alabama (15 carries, 102 yards), Ole Miss (7-109) and Vanderbilt (19-113) during a four-game span, with a 99-yard effort against Tulsa among the stretch. Boyd injured his lower back halfway through the Ole Miss game and could not return, then dinged his shoulder along the way. He kept on trucking until needing surgery on his right labrum after the season. "The labrum, a rotator cuff, is not something that's easy to play through, and the kid played through it," Traylor said. "Two major surgeries. And now he's 18 pounds heavier." - Northwest Arkansas Times
