Mike Weber Stats
Mike Weber was a steady performer during his three years as a starting running back for Ohio State. Weber averaged 5.9 yards per carry over his career and never averaged fewer than 5.5 yards per carry in a single season. He also punched in 24 touchdowns on the ground and hauled in another score through the air.
Most of Weber's cumulative statistics are low for a player of his ability, but it's important to consider the crowded backfields he shared during his tenure in Columbus. Former Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett actually led the team in rushing attempts in Weber's first season as starter (2016), with 205 carries compared to Weber's 182, though QB sacks are recorded as rushing attempts in college football. Weber did, however, still lead the team in rushing yards (1,096) and rushing touchdowns (nine) in the 2016 season. Weber was injured to begin the 2017 season and fellow Buckeye RB J.K. Dobbins burst onto the scene, resulting in Weber splitting the load with Dobbins through 2018 and the rest of his career at Ohio State.

Mike Weber NFL Draft Projection
Mike Weber NFL Mock Draft Prediction
Cleveland Browns (No. 191), Kansas City Chiefs (No. 203)
Weber has all the makings of a solid rotational running back in the NFL. He has excellent body positioning when he runs and a high football I.Q. that should allow him to maximize the potential his level of athleticism offers. Weber could be a great fit for the Cleveland Browns with the young, talented team the front office is building there. Cleveland has a strong offensive core that Weber could complement well with his balanced running style. The Browns do have talented backs in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but investing a late-round draft pick could pay situational dividends for them.
If the Browns don't take Weber with their sixth-round pick, the Kanas City Chiefs might look to add Weber to their roster. The position has been a rotating carousel since the team released Hunt late last season, so KC could benefit to add some more depth at running back.
