    Runs a bit higher than preferred, as mentioned by other users. However, he is a very smooth and elusive runner with good patience and is pretty quick and decisive. Jump cuts to the hole at times and shoots upfield. Seems to fall forward and doesn’t go down easily. His running style makes it look easy. Excellent pass protector for a rb.

      Good motor, pretty consistent in the games posted.

    Yeldon carries the ball low and loose in the open space, but positions the ball high and tight when going through the line and running with defenders around him. Yeldon runs a little higher then you would like in between the tackles. He shows patience in letting his blocks develop and once he see’s a crease he has the burst and acceleration to get through the hole quickly. Yeldon also displays the ability to jump cut in the hole to make defenders miss. He will bounce to the outside once through the hole, but will continue to hit it up inside even though the hole isn’t there. Yeldon shows the ability to be a reliable blocker in the passing game. He will square up his shoulders on blitzers and has a good punch to help stone wall defenders. Yeldon will have to improve his recognition skills as he was seen to diagnose the pass rush late. He showed to have sure hands for the reception(hands catcher) as he was used on wide and short routes out of the back field. Yeldon displayed the mental and physical toughness to fight for as many yards as possible when the ball was in his hands. He also played with the desire to compete the whole game when he was asked to.
