Florida lacks numbers at running back and Cronkrite has the size and skill set to make an impact early. Reports out of July conditioning have been very favorable for the young runner and his football IQ will only help in his ability to come in and play right away.
If he’s lacking anything it is the pure breakaway speed, but Cronkrite also played defense in high school showing off his toughness and lending more credence that he might be ready early.
He has also shown the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, while we will have to wait and see how he does in pass protection.
Cronkrite was a man among boys in a lower division of high school football, but issues don’t usually arise among skill players, but among linemen instead.
With only Kelvin Taylor able to complete spring ball, the depth chart at running back is wide open for a player like Cronkrite to come in and make some noise.
