Cons:

  • Lacks speed
  • Gets stuffed at the line more often than he should
  • Likes to bounce to the outside
  • Needs to protect the ball better (fumbles from time to time)

 

Overall

Kalen Ballage has the tools to be a successful chain mover at the next level. He has great size, runs with a lot of power, and gets the tough yards after contact. Ballage has soft hands and runs routes well, and he is used frequently in the passing game at Arizona State. He is dangerous in the open field and has the elusiveness to make some defenders miss. At the next level he will probably be used as a 3rd down back with potential to be a workhorse. He is currently looking to be a 3rd or 4th round pick.
