If you are looking for a running back that's terrific in the passing game this is your guy. Langford is a former defensive back and wide receiver that finally made the fulltime conversion to running back. He's 208-pounds and ran 4.42 [forty] at Combine. Langford earned 27 starts, rushing for 2,967 yards and 40 touchdowns. He also caught 39 passes. Langford has good quickness and shows a nice burst of explosion when he needs speed. He can also be elusive in space. I think this for Spartan has a chance to be an every down back in the NFL.

Dave-Te' Thomas Player Evaluation

The Chicago Bears selected former Michigan State RB Jeremy Langford in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Following WR Kevin White in the first round and C Hroniss Grasu in the third, Langford is the third offensive player taken by the Bears in the first four rounds.

During his collegiate career, Langford (6-0, 208) rushed 577 times for 2,967 yards and 40 touchdowns. He appeared in 50 games, including 27 consecutive starts to finish his career. He had 18 career 100-yard games, including 16 straight against Big Ten opponents.

As a senior in 2014, Langford rushed for 1,522 yards and was honorable mention All-Big Ten.

Langford is one of the fastest running back in this draft, running a 4.42 40-yard dash at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. He played both cornerback and wide receiver early in his career for the Spartans. He’s not a physical runner but his hands and quickness are above average. He's also a very good blocker in pass protection.
