The Jaguars were attracted to RB Toby Gerhart because of his ability to gain yards after contact and thrive on third down.
“Without a doubt,” RB coach Terry Richardson said of Gerhart’s physical running style. “He’s a horse. He’s a big guy, and I talked to one of his former [position] coaches, and he was saying Toby had the strongest legs he’s been around in terms of his leg drive and leg power. We’re excited about that.”
Gerhart has touched the ball 15+ times in seven career games and has averaged low-end RB1 numbers (12.6 FP) with that type of workload. For more on Gerhart's potential production, click here.
