BYU running back Tyler Allgeier made a name for himself during his time in college. After recording just 26 carries and splitting time between running back and linebacker in his first two seasons, he fully transitioned to running back in 2020. 

After taking over as the lead back in 2020, Allgeier never looked back. He totaled 2,731 rushing yards, 373 receiving yards, and 36 rushing yards over his final two seasons. He also finished his career with an average of 6.4 yards per carry.

Allgeier has achieved much of his success by simply being a quality runner. He does all of the little things that it takes to be productive, and he does them well. He isn't the fastest or the strongest, but he is widely effective. He finished the 2021 season with 1,143 yards after contact, the second-most in the country. 

There is no reason to believe that Allgeier won't be able to smoothly transition to the NFL. He can make defenders miss and is a threat whenever he touches the ball. He should instantly be able to come in and make an impact at the next level.
