Draft Scout Donnel Pumphrey News
09/15/17 - RB Donnel Pumphrey was placed on injured reserve by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, two days after sustaining a torn hamstring in practice. Pumphrey, who was a fourth-round pick, was inactive in the team's season-opening victory over the Washington Redskins after returning from a head injury during the preseason. The 5-foot-9, 176-pound Pumphrey set the FBS rushing record at San Diego State with 6,405 career yards. He had 2,133 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns last season.
09/01/17 - RB Donnel Pumphrey, the team's fourth-round pick, could be in jeopardy of not making the team. Pumphrey, who broke the FBS career rushing record at San Diego State, averaged just 1.9 yards per carry in the preseason, and didn't show any of the quickness or explosion that he showed in college.
08/01/17 - RB Donnel Pumphrey sat out Tuesday's live-contact practice. The rookie tweaked a hamstring on Sunday. It's not known how long he'll be sidelined.
06/05/17 - RB Donnel Pumphrey has impressed in the OTAs. "He's looked really good," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. "He came in and it's like, OK, here's a guy who was a stud in college (at San Diego State, with which he broke the FBS career rushing record) with all of his productivity. How is he going to fit into a pro system? Can he do it all? He had so much of his yardage (in college) from the backfield. How productive can he be if we move him around and as a pass receiving? It's early. You don't want to get too excited just yet. But I'm excited about his ball skills. I'm excited about his route-running skills. I think he's on the right track."
03/26/17 - San Diego State Pro day: As the NCAA's all-time leading rusher (6,405 yards), as well as a Senior Bowl and combine standout (4.48 in the 40-yard dash), scouts already knew that the Aztecs' Donnel Pumphrey was a special runner. During Thursday's pro day, he focused more on his receiving skills, catching passes out of the backfield and as a returner. The 5-foot-8, 176-pound Pumphrey looked comfortable catching the ball, extending to pluck a couple of tough passes, easing concerns about his ability to project as a true changeup back at the next level. Following Thursday's workout -- which also featured two more possible top-100 picks in guard Nico Siragusa and cornerback Damontae Kazee -- Pumphrey shared that he has already met with representatives from the Cardinals, Cowboys, Lions, Chargers and Jets. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
