Cameron Artis-Payne

School: Auburn Tigers

2015 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cameron Artis-Payne


Height: 5’10”

Weight: 212

Position: Running Back

Career Stats: 394 rushing attempts, 2,218 rushing yards and 19 rushing touchdowns.

Strengths: Cameron Artis-Payne is an extremely competitive runner who explodes through the hole and always keeps his legs turning for extra yardage. Artis-Payne is an old-school north and south runner who doesn’t waste much motion and will lower his shoulder at times looking for contact. Artis-Payne takes good care of the football. Artis-Payne comes in as a fresh runner who had less than 400 career carries. Artis-Payne has no injury history, as he played in all 27 games at Auburn, which includes 13 starts. Cameron Artis-Payne has a decent football IQ and comes with zero off-the-field issues.

Weaknesses: Cameron Artis-Payne isn’t going to be much of a factor in the passing game, as he has below-average hands and is a very raw route runner. Artis-Payne isn’t going to make many guys miss and doesn’t have enough athleticism to kick runs to the outside. Artis-Payne lacks a second gear once he gets out in space.

Projection: Cameron Artis-Payne could be  decent backup runner at the next level, as he works hard and can really heat up once he gets going. I’d spend a pick on Artis-Payne in the later rounds, as he could make a roster for a team looking for running back depth.
