Ultra-rare smoothness as a receiver. Extremely soft hands with zero career drops. Easily extends to haul in passes off his frame. Will run complex routes. Catches downfield passes like a wide receiver. Tracks the ball at a high level. Reliable outlet receiver that will pick up big gains when uncovered. Quick eyes to immediately locate swing passes. Seamlessly and comfortably tucks the ball after the catch. Very good football speed with the ability to rip off chunk gains. Slashing runner that evades defenders with shoulder turns. Tremendous balance. Has a subtle slipperiness to his running style. Great ability to elude and dodge would-be tacklers. Always seems to break tackles from the side or behind. Shifty feet in the open field. Keeps his shoulders square and moves forward when making jump cuts. Very good acceleration with a clear running lane. Shows some power and physicality lowering his shoulder. Effective stiff arm and plus strength. Efficient goal-line runner. Has ran routes both from outside the numbers and in the slot. Used on jet sweeps and designed touches. Vision and patience were on point with a career-high 19 carries in a win over Kentucky (2022).



Combination of patience and vision can be more consistent. Lacks elite speed/explosiveness combination typical of top receiving backs. Needs to improve ball security with five fumbles over the past two seasons. Rarely saw heavy workloads and never handled 20+ carries.


NFL comparison

Tony Pollard



Overall, McIntosh is a big-play runner and pass-catcher that profiles very similarly to Tony Pollard. The tape shows a faster player than the testing numbers would suggest, and McIntosh shouldn’t go overlooked as a backfield option on Day 2.
