Extremely explosive and tough runner. Top-end acceleration and quickness. Possesses home-run speed. Phenomenal vision with the burst and decisiveness to compliment it. Great feet. Very fluid hips. Keeps his shoulders square and easily side steps. Ideal patience. Follows his blockers and sees everything in front of him. Uses subtle shakes in the open field to avoid would-be tacklers. Effective stiff arm. Stays balanced on the sideline. Defenders could lose him behind the offensive line. Played in a pro-style system. Can run between the tackles or outside. Team-first player and high character individual on and off the field.



Concerning injury history. Currently recovering from a torn ACL suffered on final college play. Previously plagued by ankle issues. Smaller back at under five-foot-nine. Limited receiving production considering his skillset with 49 catches in four years.


NFL comparison

Phillip Lindsay – Bryce Love will almost certainly be drafted as a complimentary back, but like Lindsay, the speed, explosiveness, and natural ability as a runner could help him climb the depth chart and earn a significant role in the league.



Overall, Bryce Love is a game-breaker at running back, but the injury concerns will likely push him to Day 3 for NFL teams. That said, I’ve seen more than enough out of Love when he’s on the field to value him as a second-round pick, and he’d likely be the top running back in the class if health wasn’t a factor.
