2393. Scouting Report. . Running Back. . Camerun Peoples. player. Pick Analysis used two words to describe Camerun Peoples’ running style, “power and violence”.  This is exactly what the Buffalo Bills need, someone that will lower the pads and take it to the defense.  At 6’2″ and 225 pounds, Peoples can move defenders when makes contact and gets north and south.

Not only does he have size, but he has decent speed, clocking in at a 4.61 in the 40.  He has enough speed to get the edge, beating most linebackers, and those that he doesn’t, he has to power to go through.

Peoples totaled 2,641 yards over the last three seasons at Appalachian State.  Doing so on 434 carries, for an impressive 6.09 yards per carry.  He totaled 31 touchdowns over this same period.  He wasn’t utilized much in the passing game, with only ten receptions throughout his college career.

Even with his size and the physicality with which he runs, he still has enough wiggle to make defenders miss in the open field.

Peoples is an intriguing option for the Buffalo Bills and of these three, he’s the one I would prefer.  He can be drafted as late as the seventh round, as can all three of these running back prospects, and possibly even signed as an undrafted rookie free agent.
