Kendall Milton, RB, Georgia

HT: 6’1
WT: 220 lbs


2× CFP National Champion (2021, 2022)



Shows a surprising burst to beat linebackers to the edge. Can plant his foot in the ground and explode, showing better straight-line speed than expected.

An excellent blocker on the outside, Milton also adds value in the running game.

Doesn’t possess elite breakaway speed, but is fast enough to gain yardage in chunks when he finds a seam.

Has good burst to and through the hole. A patient runner with good vision and burst for the cutback. Squares his shoulders and can knock the defender back onto his heels. Good leg drive and forward lean to gain extra yardage after contact.

Milton aggressively finishes runs and consistently falls forward in a crowd. His low pad level and a bit of wiggle keep him from absorbing big hits.

Demonstrated the ability to track the ball over his shoulder. Good flexibility and balance to adjust to the poorly thrown pass. Good vision and patience for screens.


His hands are shaky, and Milton often needs a beat to gather himself after hauling in passes.

Milton doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.

Milton could stand to get smaller when squeezing through traffic.


In 2022 as a junior Milton saw action in 11 games for the Bulldogs. He ran for 535 yards on 73 attempts for an elite 7.3 ypc, with 7 TDs, with one fumble. As a receiver he made only 4 receptions for 46 yards.

As a senior in 2023 he played in 12 games and ran for 686 yards on 112 carries for an elite average of 6.1 ypc, with 12 TDs, with no fumbles. In the passing game he had 4 receptions for 25 yards.
