Running back Salvon Ahmed isn’t as big a name as some in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he has the potential to be a steal in later rounds

The 2020 NFL Draft running back class isn’t quite on the level with the wide receiver class, but it is still a very good one with tons of talent. While there’s no top ten pick this year, there are a number of guys that should go anywhere from the end of round one to the end of round three. Former Washington Husky Salvon Ahmed is one of those guys.

Guys like D’Andre Swift, JK Dobbins, and Jonathan Taylor are getting tons of attention, for good reason, while Salvon Ahmed has been largely overlooked. However, with some of the top players at the position returning to school, Ahmed could rise up some boards. Once scouts watch the tape, he should rise up boards.

There are many reasons to be excited about the NFL potential of Ahmed. The qualities he possesses as a running back are the qualities that will help any back to succeed at the next level. A closer look at what makes him special follows on subsequent pages. He’s going to be a steal for somebody later in this year’s draft.

Let’s take a deeper look into the Washington Huskies’ running back and what he has put on film and in the box score this season.
