In 2015 and 2016 season, he backed up Christian McCaffrey who is an All American running back and first-round NFL draft choice. Love accumulated 1,009 rushing yards in these two seasons.

Bryce Love Injury|Bryce Love ACL

Stanford’s Bryce Love could have entered the NFL draft after the 2017 season, when he rushed for 2,118 rushing yards, won the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s top college running back and finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting behind Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.

He didn’t, surprisingly returning to the Cardinal for what turned out to be an injury-plagued senior season (he said he came back partly because of his teammates and partly to finish his undergraduate degree in human biology, as he plans to become a pediatrician when he’s done playing football).

Though he played in 10 games, he rushed for just 739 yards and topped the 100-yard mark just once. And, on his final play of Stanford’s final regular season game on Dec. 1, he suffered one last injury that now seems likely to send his NFL draft stock plummeting. On Friday, he revealed to Yahoo’s Pete Thamel that he tore an ACL in his right knee, undergoing surgery with orthopedist James Andrews on Dec. 18.

“I’m very grateful to Dr. Andrews and his team for making the surgery a seamless process,” Love said in a statement to Thamel. “Obviously, there’s no such thing as an ideal injury, but I’m on the path to recovery, and my goal remains the same — getting drafted by an NFL team and being the ultimate professional. I’ll be back better than I’ve ever been.”

Bryce Love Scouting Report|Bryce Love NFL Draft Scout

Vision -Can be passive pressing into the line of scrimmage, would be well served to get in line behind his pullers and be more quick to make a move up the field to diminish negative runs. Second level vision is tremendous to break into space and avoid pursuit.

Feet/Change of Direction -Likable awareness of utilizing trail foot to toe drag and slow quickly for sudden cuts. Needs to be more aware of sustaining forward momentum and not spending too much time as a stationary target. Natural balance as a free runner to cut and contort is strong.

Durability -Has not had a healthy season in either of the two seasons in which he was asked to be a feature back. The slight frame is a notable cause for concern, will be a barrier to high volume workloads. Has suffered lower-body injuries that inhibit cut ability even when he can play through.

Balance -Control of hips and feet allow for sudden cuts and shifts in his weight. Has the physical ability to carry speed through cuts as well although discipline to press forward is not always consistent. Contact balance is soft, does not play through lateral contact well.

Pass Protection -Is not physical enough in protection. Will get pushed around by defenders looking to get into the face of the passer, Love simply lacks the anchor needed to drop down and hold his ground effectively. 3rd down reps would be better served as a receiver.

Elusiveness -Highly elusive runner with skill in setting up tacklers in the alleyway to take false steps and miss. Lateral quickness is superb, capable of cutting or bouncing suddenly into the sideline. Second gear is tremendous…when healthy.

Receiving Ability -Usage has been highly limited after a promising freshman season in 2015. Has all the needed quickness to win out of the backfield in match-ups against linebackers, although will need a lot of reps to catch up for limited development in this area.

Short Yardage Skill -Does not possess any notable levels of contact balance or lower leg drive to push through the pile and help force conversions on his own. Gets stacked up and pulled down far too easily by tacklers when challenged by a free arm in space.

Football Intelligence -Has received hand-offs from numerous alignments in the backfield: heavy backfields, single back, shotgun, etc. Irregular results with vision and setting up blockers, can’t seem to transition out of the mesh point without a delayed reaction if the first hole isn’t available.

Effort -Illustrated some of the most impressive mental toughness I’ve witnessed in recent memory, gutting out large parts of 2017 season on a bum ankle. Can be guilty at times of trying to make too much happen in the backfield, for better and for worse.

BEST TRAIT – Elusiveness

WORST TRAIT – Durability

BEST FILM – UCLA (2017)

WORST FILM – San Diego State (2018)

RED FLAGS – Durability concerns

Stanford RB Bryce Love projects most favorably as part of a stable of backs, his lack of durability is a significant barrier to featured success. In addition, Love struggles to consistently follow his blockers in power rushing concepts and can be passively pressing the line of scrimmage. As a result, his speed to the perimeter would be best implemented as an outside zone back and regular rotation of snaps.

Bryce Love Bowl Game

It turns out Bryce Love’s decision to skip Stanford’s bowl game was really not a choice for the Cardinal’s star running back. He revealed Friday that he missed the Sun Bowl because he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee against Cal.

In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Love said he’s still in the early stages of recovering from his injury, which has dropped his NFL draft stock. While he will attend the NFL Combine next month, he’s still not sure when he will be cleared for football activities after his Dec. 18 surgery with Dr. James Andrews.

“I’m very grateful to Dr. Andrews and his team for making the surgery a seamless process,” Love told Yahoo Sports. “Obviously, there’s no such thing as an ideal injury, but I’m on the path to recovery, and my goal remains the same — getting drafted by an NFL team and being the ultimate professional. I’ll be back better than I’ve ever been.”

According to Yahoo, Love is working out at Andrews’ training facility in Florida and is expected to make a full recovery. However, it remains to be seen how NFL teams will evaluate him come draft time in April.

Love, who was the Heisman Trophy runner-up a year ago, raised some eyebrows when he announced after the regular season that he would be sitting out Stanford’s bowl game to “focus on being completely healthy and prepared for the 2019 NFL draft.”

It was assumed Love was making the same business decision ex-Cardinal star Christian McCaffrey made in 2016 when he decided to skip the Sun Bowl to prepare for the draft. There was no indication he was actually hurt until Yahoo Sports’ report came out Friday.

Love’s injury occurred in the fourth quarter of Stanford’s Big Game win over Cal on Dec. 1. He had gained 74 yards during the game before exiting when he injured his knee on a late carry.

The injury capped a rough senior season for Love, who came into 2018 as a Heisman favorite after running for 2,118 yards while averaging 8.1 yards per carrying. Love’s 13 runs of 50 yards or more in 2017 established an FBS record. He wound up rushing for just 739 yards on 166 carries for 4.4 yards per carrying, nearly half as many yards per run as last year.

Bryce Love High School

A native of Wake Forest, North Carolina, Love attended Wake Forest-Rolesville High School. In addition to track, he competed in football and drew comparisons to Keith Marshall. At the combine of the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, Love ran an electronically timed 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

A track phenom from an early age, Love posted a remarkable 2009 Track & Field season which culminated at the 2009 USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships. Love set national record-breaking times of 11.64 in the 100m, 23.37 in the 200m and 50.75 in the 400m dash. It was the first time a boy from the midget age group (11–12 years old) has set three national records in one year. Love was named USA Track & Field Youth Athlete of the Year 2009.

Two years later, Love set new records in the 13–14 yrs group at a meet in Hoschton, Georgia. He ran 10.73 in the 100 and 21.83 in the 200 on consecutive days. As a football player, he was rated as a four-star player coming out of high school. He chose Stanford over several other schools, including North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

Bryce Love Projection

Bryce Love could have regretted coming back for his senior season last fall at Stanford. The Cardinal running back and 2017 Heisman finalist took a step back in terms of production this season, partly due to injuries that sporadically sidelined him.

After being named college football’s best running back with the 2017 Doak Walker Award, he only gained 739 yards on 166 carries, scoring only 6 times. He also missed the Sun Bowl after an ACL tear in late November.

The decision to sit comes as he prepares for the draft and will look to use the NFL Scouting Combine as a way to boost his stock even more. Let’s take a look at the latest on Love’s combine results, as well as his draft outlook, projections for when he could come off the board and current stock.

At this time, the running backs have only been measured and tested on bench press repetitions. Love lifted the 225-pound bar 18 times, which was in the bottom half on all players. Kansas State’s Alex Barnes broke Jerick McKinnon’s true running back record with 34 reps.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports listed Love’s full measurements. He is 5-foot-8 7/8 and weighs 200 pounds. His hand size is 9 1/8 inches, which helps with ball security due to grip.

Love did not participate in any of the speed and agility drills due to his knee injury.

Bryce Love’s NFL Draft Stock
Before his injury-ridden season last year, the talented back racked up 2,118 rushing yards on 263 carries (8.1 yards per attempt) and 19 touchdowns in 13 games in 2017.

Walter Football has him as the No. 13 overall back. They cited Love’s injuries as well as the fact that opposing defenses are “selling out to stop him” this year.

“Even though Love was awesome in 2017,” the site writes, “he could slide because of injury and durability concerns.”

The injuries have negatively affected his stock. ESPN’s Mel Kiper listed Love as the No. 2 running back on his late December Big Board, behind only Alabama’s Damien Harris. While the production has been there, health concerns are scaring analysts away. Running backs take a pounding at the NFL level, meaning backs need to exhibit durability.

Love addressed these concerns during his NFL Combine media availability.

Bryce Love’s NFL Draft Projections
The Stanford running back is tough to gauge from current mock drafts and overall projections. He isn’t listed in the first few rounds of Walter Football’s latest mock draft. Charles Campbell praises his “great mix of balance, underrated strength, vision and home-run ability,” but that doesn’t bear out in an early pick.

Based on pure potential and upside (which was apparent in 2017) there’s an obvious reason to believe Love could wind up as a second or third-day pick. With multiple running back-needy teams ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, there are a handful of strong fits for the 5-foot-10, 203 pounds running back.

His stock also seems more likely to rise than fall with the combine being an opportunity for Love to showcase his talent, athleticism, and strength.

NFL Draft: What happened to Bryce Love, love?

Former Stanford standout Bryce Love has seen his NFL Draft stock plummet. Will the former Heisman runner up prove doubters wrong?
It’s been a tough year for former Stanford running back Bryce Love. The Heisman runner up to Baker Mayfield in 2018 rushed for 2,118 yards on his way to winning the Doak Walker Award for the nation’s best running back. Then he made the curious decision to return to college rather than enter the NFL Draft early.

His return to college was rooted in a desire to finish his degree and set himself up for life after football. He achieved that goal, but the cost might have been more than he could have ever anticipated. Even with his return to school, Love was supposed to be a sure-fire first-round draft pick. He’s as good as he ever was, but that opportunity might be long gone.
Love had the unenviable task of following in the footsteps of first-round pick Christian McCaffrey. Somehow he made the nation forget there had been another generation back toting the rock at the same school in recent memory. He was just that good.

A home run hitter, Love possesses the vision to find the hole and accelerate. He’s the kind of player that can take advantage of a linebacker who blinks at the wrong time and burst into the secondary without being touched. Love is elusive and can start and stop on a dime.

He’s had some receiving experience, catching 49 passes in four years for the Cardinal. That pass catching ability will be coveted at the next level.

Weaknesses
The last play of an injury-plagued senior season proved to be the most devastating for Love. His last game ended with a torn ACL, later surgically repaired by Dr. James Andrews prior to the NFL Combine this spring. Love was limited in his participation, further crushing his already slipping draft stock.
Running backs who are viewed as non-durable don’t last long in the NFL. Although he’s far from brittle, the 5-foot-9, 196-pound Love is far from being considered a heavy hitter. He also had the added benefit of an imposing offensive line who opened up big holes for him frequently. The line took a step backward once offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren left for Rice, and so did Love’s production.

Love has burst, but the instinctiveness of his cuts remain a question mark. He’s prone to lateral movement in the backfield, often forgoing the open short-yardage runs for the chance at something bigger.

Draft expectations
After a rough two-year stretch health-wise, it’s hard to see Love being picked in the first two days of the draft. His skillset and quickness lend itself to being part of a committee as a change of pace or third down back. If that is the case, his toughness in pass protection will have to take another step.

There’s a real fear that Love’s best year’s of football is behind him. But, the talent is still there. Love is the kind of player with the level of focus and mental fortitude which could make NFL scouts kick themselves for passing him over. The range of outcomes for his professional career remains vast. Someone is going to take a chance on him early on Day 3.

Projection: Early fourth round
