Scouting Reports

Strengths

  • His high compete level allows him to play much bigger than he is.
  • Has solid receiving chops and a great ability to high-point the ball for a running back.
  • He is tough to bring down in space with a great stiff arm.
  • He hits his holes quickly and efficiently and follows his blocks well.

Weaknesses

  • He doesn’t have breakaway speed or burst.
  • Often seeks out contact too much instead of attempting to evade tackles.
  • He has a tendency to dance behind the line when there is no obvious rushing lane and struggles to bounce the run to the outside.
  • Is a good receiver with great hands but runs a rudimentary route tree without any real refinements.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital: Round 6/7

Ideal Landing Spot: Minnesota Vikings

Holani is going to be a late Day 3 pick or possibly even an undrafted free agent. While he does offer some upside, he is likely to be a depth piece. I think Minnesota is a great destination because even a depth piece is likely better than Alexander Mattison.

If Holani can crack the Vikings lineup and get a shot he could be useful for the team, especially when you consider his upside in the receiving game.
