Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Isaiah Spiller is serviceable in pass game but does not catch the ball naturally, often traps it against body or basket catches. Able to create when the play scheme breaks down with MYM ability in the backfield as well as in the open field while maintaining ball security. Pass pro needs to improve, Feet go dead on contact, does not bring hands on contact, looks to throw a shoulder into defenders then re-leverage back to position. Footwork through mesh points is solid, shows patience approaching the LOS allowing blocks to develop as well as to read backer pursuit for cut back lanes.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Isaiah Spiller started 9 games as a freshman, receiving SEC All-Freshman Team honors. Spiller finished his sophomore year ranked 3rd in the SEC averaging 103.6 yds/game. Prior to the 2021 season Spiller was a preseason Heisman Award Watch List candidate. With the ability to come in and make an early impact for a team, Isaiah Spiller is a 1st and 2nd down back, probably to be replaced early in his career on 3rd due to poor pass protection technique and unsure hands. His MYM ability allows him to create on his own and with dynamic speed/explosiveness to be a threat with the ball at any time. He possesses a strong lower body with room to grow up top and has shown toughness & durability playing through injury. Spiller has solid production vs ranked opponents during his career as a starter, which shows his ability to do it against top tier opponents. Project Spiller as a late 2nd - 3rd round talent that could make an early impact to an NFL teams backfield.
