Christian McCaffrey would be quite the weapon for the Houston Texans.

Christian McCaffrey marks the third report posted on a 2017 NFL draft prospect. I have written one on Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer as well as another on Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly.

McCaffrey had an electric career for Stanford as a running back, returner, and part-time receiver.

He finished his collegiate career with 3,922 rushing yards, 1206 receiving yards, and a total of 31 career touchdowns from scrimmage.

When it comes to McCaffrey, the  biggest issue with him is his size, but scouts still see him as a first-round talent in this year’s NFL draft.

The good news is that despite McCaffrey’s size he experienced no major injuries while averaging 30 touches a game in college.

The following slides are my draft notes as well as my pro-player comparison for the young running back. I hope you enjoy.
