Noah Herron School: Northwestern
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 224 40: 4.74 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a senior,
leading the team in rushing with 274/1,381/5 on
the ground and 36/351/1 as a pass catcher.
Shared the ball with Jason Wright as a junior, yet
still posted 739 yards rushing with five scores.
Positives: Good-sized ball carrier with solid running
intangibles. Keeps driving forward displaying
strength in his lower body and a punishing
runner between tackle who picks up yardage off
initial contact. Works to finish runs and always
giving top effort. Also patient, waits for blocks to
develop and immediately finds the running lanes.
Solid receiver out of the backfield, extending his
hands to catch the ball away from his frame.
Negatives: Lacks speed and agility around the corner.
Not an elusive runner who can immediately
change direction or make defenders miss. Must
pick all aspects of his blocking.
offensive threat as a ball carrier or pass catcher,
Herron's ultimate NFL position could be at fullback.
Has potential as a triple threat player, yet
must quickly improve all of his blocking skills as
well as intensity.
