Physical Attributes – Raleek has a shorter, thicker body type. He is a 99 EA Sports video game ranking right now!! He possesses elite burst, acceleration, long speed and explosiveness. Along with elite balance and body control and feet. He runs with power and explosiveness but shows that his ability to make people miss, change direction on a dime and then burst immediately after his cut is amazing. His god given physical attributes are impressive. Raleek aslo has a verified 4.47, 40 yard dash. Like any other player as he develops physically, he will become an even more impressive physical specimen.
Position Specific Skills – I will start with this, there isn’t much on this exposure of him blocking. Would like to see more because of how important it is to be a 4 down back. Other than that, this kid is an elite running back. OFF FRESHMAN FILM!! His initial quickness is evident on every run. Great twitch. He has elite balance and body control with the ability to jump cut at any given second. He shows elite balance and body contro with an elite ability to make people miss. He makes very hard things to do with your body look easy. He has elite play speed and verified long speed. Add all this with elite vision and you have a beast on your hands. The kicker for me is when he lines up at WR and shows the ability to run great routes and the ability adjust to the ball in the air and then catch the ball. A natural pass catcher as if he is a WR.
Overall – Raleek is a jack of all trades when it comes to the RB position. A make you miss type guy who can run with power and explosiveness. His god given abilities are way beyond his years. I was literally shaking my head thinking that this is FRESHMAN film I was watching. This is as good a RB as I’ve seen. When he gets to around 200lbs, with those skills he will be a nightmare to defend. His ceiling is the sky. Like all players, his commitment to being the best, working his craft every day, getting in the weight room and good learner and a good teammate will determine how far he can take his current state to the next level.
