Strengths 

Rountree is a hard nose runner with a great burst. He has excellent contact balance in the hole with great pad level. This paired with his persistent effort to keep his legs moving, allows for him to break tackles. He possesses an elite spin move, which allows for him to pick up extra yards at the second level. He is a very capable pass blocker. He does a great job of meeting the defender at the line and engaging. He runs with a mean streak and is a high motor guy who fights for every yard he can.

Weaknessess

Rountree lacks the traits of an elite athlete. His limited lateral agility and wiggle, regulates him to being a north and south runner. He does not possess elite speed, which limits his ability to break off big runs. Rountree is not much of a factor in the pass game. His route tree is limited and he is stiff out of breaks. Rountree at times is indecisive in the hole causing negative plays.

Big Picture

Rountree is a one dimensional back. His lack of lateral agility and burner speed, makes him a one cut and go type back. When he decides to stick his foot in the ground, he is dangerous between the tackles. He possesses great contact balance and a relentless effort to keep driving his legs through contact. He has little experience as a pass catcher, but it is apparent he is limited. He does not run many routes and when he does he creates little to no separation. However, he shows great ability as a pass blocker. He meets and engages the defender at the line of scrimmage to deliver a blow. He keeps his hands inside, which allows for him to be an asset in pass protection. Rountree is a high motor guy, who plays with a lot of heart. He will likely be a day 3 pick and could be a productive back in the league in a running back by committee system.

Rountree flashed good vision at times, which allowed for him to turn negative plays into postive plays. His cutting is limited, but has enough cutting capability to be a one cut and go type runner. His pad level and leg drive are some of his best traits. He hits the hole with his shoulders low and square, then drives all 210 pounds of him through the defender.

Receiving:

6

Rountree is not a receiving threat. He relies on his body to make catches. He runs very few routes, and he struggles to create any separation. At times he flashed potential in open space, but not enough to make it a priority to get him the ball in space.

Rountree shows preat promise as a pass blocker. He consistently met defenders at the line of scrimmage, which allowed for him to be successful as a pass protector. In college, he was never asked to be a lead blocker, but his effort and willingness as a pass blocker is an indicator that he would thrive as a lead blocker. He struggled at times in open space as a blocker, because he would catch the defender rather than attack.
