Holyfield’s draft stock dropped after he posted a 4.78 time in the 40-yard dash and didn’t demonstrate great explosion.

Holyfield rushed for 1,018 yards and seven touchdowns on 159 carries and had five catches for 40 yards this past season as he split time with D’Andre Swift, who rushed for 1,049 yards.
Holyfield will compete with Scarlett, Cameron Artis-Payne, Reggie Bonnafon and Elijah Hood for the spot behind McCaffrey.
The kid has good genes, he should be alright.
