Running Back Mike Weber, Ohio State

He won’t blow you away with anything in particular, but Mike Weber is a running back who is good enough at just about everything. Coming from a stout program like Ohio State, like the aforementioned Prince, he is accustomed to winning and knows what it takes to play winning football.

Weber actually has pretty impressive speed, running his 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at the Combine. His vision is one of his stronger components, and he uses it to his advantage because of the fact that he doesn’t have the moves to shake defenders as well as other guys in his class. That will limit him just a bit, but he offers enough to be taken in the fifth round as a good value.

One thing Nagy and his offensive staff will like about Weber is his  sneaky affinity for catching the football. Over his three years at Ohio State, Weber only caught 54 passes. But, he catches the football when it is thrown in his direction. While some backs catch the football in two different motions, Weber catches it in stride without wasting any time or ground.

Assuming the Bears do not go running back before the fifth round, Weber is one of the more experienced and polished backs, likely available, who would add the right kind of depth in Chicago. I know I didn’t make an overwhelming case for him, but know that he does the right things. That’s the best way to describe his game.
