Final Grade

Strengths 

Homer's biggest strengths would involve his cutting ability and quickness. He is a great one-cut back who can make defenders miss in the open field at any given moment. I also like his toughness. Despite the beating he took in some games while at Miami, Homer continued to run the ball hard. It is also a plus that he showed the ability to be a threat in the passing game as many NFL teams incorporate their backs in the passing game today.

Weaknessess

I worry about Homer's frame at the next level. He will need to train hard to build on muscle weight as defenders in the NFL are a different beast and will make it harder on him to make tackles and block as effectively as he did in college. Homer will also need to prove to have more productivity in him during camp and in preseason games. Although he was one of the bigger parts of Miami's offense, he still was up and down a lot in production. This was in part due to a subpar offensive line but he likely won't have that excuse at the next level.

Big Picture

Travis Homer decided to leave school early and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft after three years at Miami. As a freshman , he was mainly used as a special teams player and received very few reps at running back. In his sophomore season, Homer played in all 13 games and started the last nine. He finished that season with 1663 carries for 966 yards and eight touchdowns., along with 18 receptions for 219 yards and a touchdown. Those numbers earned him Second Team All-ACC Honors. In his final season with the Hurricanes, Homer was the clear starter in the backfield and finished with 164 carries for 985 yards and four touchdowns. He also caught 19 passes for 186 yards. He was named Second Team All-ACC for the second straight year this season. At the next level, I see Homer finding a role as a rotational player who could spell the starting running back when needed. His ability to become a threat in the passing game will be a huge plus in regards to playing time. I see him going in a mid-late round to a team looking for depth at the running back position. If put in the right system and given the opportunity to prove himself, Homer could eventually become a feature back and have a great career but he has some growing to do as a player before that happens.

Has a good amount of quickness in him, which he uses to make cuts and make defenders miss. Keeps his balance efficiently when making those cuts. Plays with a decent pad level but could improve on that. Also shows some flexibility when reaching for badly thrown balls at times. Can make cuts with ease and change course quickly. However, prefers to get north-south and run vertical. Has shown ability to make defenders pay when running through the gaps to gain extra yards. Can also show that explosion to break away from defenders in open space. He is sort of inconsistent in this area. While he has shown that he can get vertical in the open field quickly, there were also cases where he'd run out of steam in the open field and get run down by defenders.

Big Play Ability

He sees the hole quickly and hits them with a great first burst. Homer is a great example of a one-cut back. He can plant his feet "on the dime" and make sharp cuts to make defenders miss in open space. Has a knack for making defenders miss in the open field due to his quickness and cutting ability. Isn't one of the biggest running backs in this year's draft class but can break tackles both in the gaps and in the open field. Keeps the ball high and tight for the most part but did fumble four times in 2018, losing three of them.

Receiving:

6.43

Won't see him drop many catchable balls that are thrown to him. Catches with his hands instead of his body. Wasn't asked to run too many complicated routes in college. Mainly ran out in the flats or was used in the screen passing game. If he went deep, it was a simple go route. Used in space mainly in the screen passing game, was very effective in that regard. Would look the ball in and make the catch first then look to make a play in the open field. He grades low in this category due to the simple fact that he didn't run many routes in college. However, he does possess the speed to be able to create separation.

Wasn't asked to do this in college. His small frame worries me in this aspect of the game but he does play physical enough to try to get the job done. Also wasn't asked to do this very much at Miami. The same things strike me in this aspect as with lead blocking. Is a very reliable pass blocker. Picks up blitzing linebackers with ease and isn't scared to take on bigger defensive linemen who make it through the line of scrimmage. Picks up the incoming blitz and knows when to stay in and block or leak out into the flats as a receiver.
