PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Spears would be a good fit for a zone-blocking scheme that emphasizes a lot of inside and outside zone runs. He has the ability to read blocks and find the right running lanes, and his power and speed make him a dangerous runner on both inside and outside runs. Spears is also a capable receiver out of the backfield, with good hands and the ability to make plays in the passing game. He is a willing blocker in pass protection, which makes him a valuable asset in the passing game.

SCOUTING REPORT

Tyjae Spears is an explosive running back with good vision and pass-catching ability. His size and power may be a concern at the NFL level, but he has the potential to be a change-of-pace back and a valuable contributor in the passing game. He will need to continue to work on his pass protection and strength to be a complete back, but his speed and elusiveness make him an intriguing prospect. He is likely a mid-to-late-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
