Benny Snell Stats

Benny Snell was incredibly productive on the ground during his three-year career at Kentucky. The 21-year-old running back posted three straight seasons of more than 1,000 rushing yards and double-digit touchdowns, finishing his career with 3,873 yards and 48 scores. Snell earned Second-Team All-American and First-Team All-SEC honors in his senior season.

While the rushing production was there, he didn't flash much versatility. Snell only caught 29 balls out of the backfield in his career, and he wasn't a special teams contributor after his freshman year. He also ran a 4.66 40-yard dash and did not jump well at the NFL Combine.

Benny Snell NFL Mock Draft Prediction

Atlanta Falcons (No. 187), Carolina Panthers (No. 189)

The Atlanta Falcons just lost Tevin Coleman to San Francisco, and they're in need of a bigger back with nobody weighing more than 210 pounds in Atlanta's backfield. Snell's physical nature would also complement the quickness of Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith.

The Carolina Panthers gave Christian McCaffrey a massive workload in 2018, but they would be wise to scale that back in 2019. The young star gained some weight at the beginning of last season, but he still weighs under 210 pounds. After parting ways with C.J. Anderson halfway through last season, the Panthers are in need of a hefty goal-line back, and Snell could be that guy.
