If you asked me which offensive skill player made themselves the most money during Senior Bowl week, I’d be hard pressed to share the Kalen Ballage spotlight with anyone else. With his long frame at 6-foot-2 and beefy build, I couldn’t help but see a lot of Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson in his game. Much like Johnson, who was also a Senior Bowl participant, Ballage looks incredibly smooth and natural in the passing game while running routes and catching the ball.
In a deep class of running backs yet again, Ballage will likely get pushed down further than his talent might suggest. However, finding a tailback that can stay on the field on all three downs in a pass-happy league is now more valuable than ever.
Check out a pair of interviews with Ballage from Mobile.
