Scouting Report

One word: Versatility. Another word: Athleticism. Potts has both in spades. It’s not difficult to see why offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca would be excited to add an athlete like Potts to his arsenal. He can play running back or wide receiver and thrives in space. Line him up in the backfield, put him at slot receiver, throw a bubble screen, call for a jet sweep, etc. If you want to get creative, Potts is the kind of the player who allows you to open up the playbook.

Potential Impact

With the Gophers loaded at running back and wide receiver, no matter where Potts ends up, head coach P.J. Fleck and co. may opt to keep him sidelined. He suffered separate ACL tears as a junior and a senior, costing him a significant portion of both seasons. Prior to that, Potts rushed for more than 2,000 yards and scored 37 touchdowns as a sophomore. His future at Minnesota will depend on whether he can stay on the field.
