 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Averaging 26 rushing attempts per game is a heavy workload for any running back, let alone one with a 5-foot-9, 185-pound frame and a history of knee injuries. Yet, asked if he'd be OK with seeing that number reduced this year, Colorado's Jarek Broussard smiled, puts his arms out, shrugged his shoulders and said, "I ain't trippin' off getting the ball because, I mean, obviously I would want the ball. But, we have a good room and it would be very beneficial to see more guys contribute to the team success. "If I have to, I'll do what I gotta do to help the team win." Broussard battled back from two knee injuries in previous years to earn Pac-12 offensive player of the year honors in 2020 after leading the Buffs with 813 rushing yards during the five-game regular season. He added 82 more in the Alamo Bowl.

Nationally, Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim was the only player to average more attempts per game (28.7) than Broussard, in part because the Buffs didn't have great options around him. This year, Alex Fontenot, the Buffs' leading rusher in 2019, is back from injury, and Ashaad Clayton is a more mature second-year player. Deion Smith, who is also back from injury, Joe Davis and Jayle Stacks help to make the room even deeper. "We have a deep room and we all just feed off each other's success," Broussard said. "Despite me getting player of the year accolades, all that does is it motivates the other guys in the room. Fontenot was the leading rusher when I was here (in 2019), so that just gave me the confidence in myself to like, 'Okay, maybe I could do that, too." - Daily Camera
