Trestan Ebner is a running back from Baylor in his rookie season. He was a seventh-round pick. The obvious realization is that he is behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. However, from there he could end up being the number three running back.
The big thing that Ebner has that Hebert does not have is his ability as a receiving back. Ebner was almost more of a flex player than a running back in college. His ability to do both allowed him to get the football in different ways, and it could be his path to the NFL as well.
He has been one of the biggest sensations so far in Camp. Here are a few examples:
Ebner could be considered the number three back, but he will have to compete with Darrynton Evans. Evans is a former third-round pick, he has a similar passing game upside, and he tested out to be much more athletic than Ebner. Even while Herbert was a sixth-round pick, he was a Ryan Pace pick. Evans is a Poles signing.
In most cases, the third running back will not be a big contributor when you consider Montgomery and Herbert have a presence. At the same time, the ability to add as a pass-catcher could be worthwhile as ending up higher than currently rated. -Parker Hurley
