The 6’0”, 201-pound running back has proven himself as one of the top offensive threats in all of college football. McCaffrey uses his combination of speed and power to muscle through tacklers, and he attacks opponents in a number of ways—rushing, receiving, and on kick returns. The Heisman Trophy candidate was electric during the 2015 campaign for the Cardinal, zig-zagging and juking his way into the record books by crushing the all-purpose yards mark set by legendary running back Barry Sanders—he put up 3,864 last season, beating Sanders’ record by over 500 yards.
The Denver native won the AP College Football Player of the Year award for 2015 and was runner-up for the Heisman behind Alabama running back Derrick Henry. McCaffrey’s defining performance came in the Rose Bowl against Iowa after the 2015 regular season—he set a Rose Bowl record with 368 all-purpose yards and became the first player to have over 100 yards rushing and receiving in the game. Check out the highlights here and you'll see why McCaffrey is such a stud.
