Rhamondre Stevenson played two years at Cerritos College before landing at Oklahoma and proved to be worthy of 2021 NFL Draft consideration in his second season with the Sooners. Stevenson averaged 7.2 yards per carry through two seasons with Oklahoma and ran for 1,180 yards and 13 touchdowns on 165 carries. He’s not a star prospect, but he has a lot to offer the pros.
Stevenson isn’t the fastest back, but few prospects run with as much physicality as him. He powers through tackles consistently. He’s more than a straight-line runner, as he capable of cutting effectively. Stevenson can also be a factor as a pass catcher. His vision and patience could use work though. Improving those weaknesses could help him find big plays without enduring heavy contact.

Mock Draft landing spots
Stevenson isn’t a regular on mocks, but has a shot to come off the board as early as the third day of the draft. The Atlanta Falcons has to address other needs in the draft, they could invest in their future. Mike Davis is set to replace Todd Gurley as their starter in 2021. Atlanta ranked 27th in rushing yards last season.
Fantasy impact: Rookie year
Stevenson hasn’t shown enough to step in as a feature back from day one, but can be a key contributor for a committee. He has a knack for getting chunk yardage on his carries, and his power could make him an ideal goal-line option. He can mack up for a lesser workload by finding the end zone, but likely won’t be among the most productive rookie running backs.
Fantasy impact: Career
Stevenson is best suited to be a backup now, but could develop into a quality starter in time. Most power runners don’t have soft hands like Stevenson. He eclipsed 100 rushing yards in nearly a third of his games at Oklahoma despite never really being. true workhorse. He has the makings of a reliable, three-down back in the right system.
