  Draft Scout by Conference

  Missouri running back Larry Rountree has found a new home on the West Coast. The Raleigh, North Carolina, native was selected by the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday with the No. 198 overall selection in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Rountree finished his Missouri career as the school's all-time leading rusher among running backs with 3,720 yards and 40 touchdowns. Rountree is second on the Tigers' all-time list behind quarterback Brad Smith, who finished with 4,193 rushing yards. "It's crazy because honestly, me coming to college, that (rushing yards record) was never a goal. I never would have thought in a million years that I would be third," Rountree said after passing Brock Olivo for third on the all-time rushing list after Missouri's win over Kentucky in October. "But I knew coming here as long as I ran for my teammates and my mom, then everything will take care of itself."

At the MU pro day in March, Rountree participated in running back drills and also took passes as a wide receiver - a move he hopes helps him stand out among his competition. "I would say I've always been an underdog," Rountree said. "Coming out of high school, I was a two-star. So I've always had a permanent chip on my shoulder...Guys weren't talking about me coming out of high school. Nobody knew about me. That's why it's surprising what I did here at Mizzou. "But still at the end of the day, I can't control how people talk about me. The only thing I can control is how I play...No matter what, if you think another guy's better than me, at the end of the day, I know what I can do. So it's more a fact of how I take it." - Columbia Daily Tribune
