Overall

Bryce Love is a speedy back who can really do some damage in the open field. He should be a 3rd or 4th round pick. His NFL comparison is James White: they both have similar frames and rely on their speed and shiftiness to make plays. Love has the potential to be a solid NFL player but will not ever be a feature back at the next level. His speed alone will attract many NFL teams come draft day, and he will likely be used as an offensive weapon or scat back.
