2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Louis Rankin, RB, Washington

Rankin burst onto the scene in 2007, rushing for 1,294 yards and six touchdowns with a 5.6 yard per carry average. Rankin was thought of as a total bust since arriving four years ago at the University of Washington until this season. Rankin is a stout runner at just under 6' and 211 pounds. He has been unofficially timed in the 40 at 4.55, according to ESPN.com. Rankin is a shifty runner that likes to put his shoulder down and run over defenders. He was a member of the second team All-Pac-10 team this year. He was troubled in 2007 with a minor hip pointer, but played relatively injury free throughout his career at Washington. Rankin has not done much as a receiver out of the backfield, finishing with 20 receptions for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns. Rankin does well in pass blocking situations and will likely make an immediate impact on special teams. Rankin is not likely to be drafted prior to the third or fourth round without eye-popping numbers at the combine.
