The 2024 NFL Draft is getting close, making it an excellent time to highlight some of the class' best players with scouting reports. Each report will include strengths, weaknesses and background information. 

Here's our report on Kendall Milton.

Kendall Milton 2024 NFL COMBINE RESULTS

  • Height: 6-foot-1 1/2"
  • Weight: 225 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.62 seconds
  • 10-yard split: 1.51 seconds
  • 20-yard shuttle: 4.38 seconds
  • Vertical jump: 35.5"
  • Broad jump: 10' 4"
  • Arm length: N/A



  • Excellent size with a running style that plays to it with downhill decisiveness and toughness to get hard yards.
  • Extensive experience running both zone and gap scheme concepts. Ran at times as an I-back in Georgia's offense.
  • Ran with a strong sense of patience, tempo, vision reading blocks, gap fluidity and defensive flow.
  • Good vision was a defining attribute; has an innate feel for reading and manipulating second-level defenders.
  • Strong, physical runner who showed natural power and excellent contact balance to work through the second level.
  • Flashed some lateral agility to make third-level defenders miss in space without losing balance and power.


  • Lacks accelerating burst and speed at the second and third levels of the defense. Does not possess top-end speed.
  • Not shifty and elusive when he clears the first level of defense. Not a make-you-miss runner with juking ability.
  • Doesn’t have quick, agile feet to string moves together. Did not show re-acceleration ability in confined space.
  • Did not show any creativity re: lateral agility and moves at the third level of defense. At times, went down too easily.
  • Almost no volume and production in the passing game at Georgia. Is that an area that can be improved upon in the NFL?

Milton is a specific kind of back as you project his transition to the next level — he has a traits profile that will find a place in the NFL as a complementary or committee back, depending on the team and scheme. Milton is a 225-pound back who runs to his size with defining traits of natural power and strong contact balance to work effectively at the first and second levels of the defense.

Milton’s 2023 tape showed excellent vision with a good feel for the pace and tempo of zone and gap scheme runs, as well as an innate sense of gap fluidity and defensive flow to make quick cuts early in runs. Milton is a tough, competitive downhill runner who gets hard yards at the first and second levels of the defense, but he lacks any home run ability.

Too often, when he got to the third level of the defense, he would look to hunt up defenders and initiate contact at times, going down too easily and leaving yards on the field. The bottom line with Milton is that he is a professional runner with excellent size, clean vision, pace, tempo, natural power and competitive toughness, and those traits always find a place in the NFL.


Milton came out of California as a highly recruited four-star prospect and a top-10 running back nationally. He played four years at Georgia, finishing his career with a strong 2023 season: 121-790-6.5-14 TD.
