In a draft class that will feature many running backs, such as the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Sincere McCormick, who will go unnoticed, many general managers will look back and wonder how they missed out.
While McCormick will be seen as a “diamond in the rough,” so to speak, his college production certainly warrants a look by NFL decision-makers. During his junior breakout season, he put together an impressive offensive clinic that went unnoticed, totaling 1,479 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns while averaging slightly more than five yards per carry.
Who is Sincere McCormick?
A look at the UTSA running back…
McCormick is five-foot-nine and weighs 205 pounds. During his tenure at UTSA, he registered back-to-back 1,000-plus yard seasons, which is impressive. He brought semi-media attention when he led his school to a nearly undefeated season that ended in an appearance in the Frisco Bowl. He’s a true speed back that will bull rush his way through defenders in order to get those extra yards for a first down or simply get a touchdown. He also has no problem with ball security, as he’s never fumbled during his three years at UTSA. McCormick is simply a special talent. If given the chance, he will make your team better.
Sincere McCormick’s Strengths
McCormick already has the size for today’s game and has no problem finding lanes or making a defender miss. He also has the speed and a quick first step and is able to make his jump cuts, and this will improve once he makes the roster. If you wish to see how great he is, take a look at his games versus Western Kentucky, where he put up 204 rushing yards with three touchdowns on 36 carries. That was one of his junior seasons. One more thing you also never have to worry about is him fumbling or losing the ball as he’s had zero fumbles.

One of the main knocks on his game would be the fact that he played in a weaker conference where the talent isn’t top tier. The main issue would be with his frame and whether he could be able to take on blocks when needed. This is something that must be improved if he wishes to impress scouts. Other than that, he has no flags or off-the-field issues.

Sincere McCormick’s draft projection
As open as this draft class is for running backs, McCormick could be a surprise third-to-fifth round pick. He could easily fall right into the lap of a team in need of his services. Despite playing at a small school, that shouldn’t be an issue as that doesn’t matter as much as the impact you make on the field once you make it to the next level. I have his floor being Maurice Jones-Drew/Steven Jackson, and his floor being Corey Dillion/Devontae Booker.
