Jordan Leggett played the H-back role for the National Champion Clemson Tigers. He was primarily a blocker who occasionally caught a pass. He was very effective at the role for the Tigers, and his play should be effective enough to get him drafted in two weeks.

Watching the tape shows a few obvious strengths. Leggett has great size for the H-back position, meaning that he is big enough to be an effective blocker if he wants to be. His height makes him a mismatch against safeties. He has great hands to catch passes naturally. His NFL.com scouting report puts it right when it states:
"Outstanding size for the position. Has experience playing in-line, from slot, and as a wingback. Former high school receiver with natural, confident hands to snatch throws out in front of him. Just two drops over final two college seasons. Desired foot quickness in tight quarters. Seam-buster in Clemson’s offense. Has feel for finding the throw when working over top of linebackers between the hashes. Able to drop and dig out the low throws. Shows some ability to turn out edge linebackers when he puts his mind to it."
His route running could use improvement, as could his blocking technique. But these are issues that every would-be H-back must endure when entering the league. His desire has been called into question, but watching his play in 2016 does not back up that sentiment. He plays hard, particularly in big games.
Leggett also shows a willingness to block even though his technique is lacking. As his NFL.com scouting report states:
"Aggressiveness and desire to block are questioned by scouts. Lacks instincts and block-sustaining as a move blocker. Accepts the brunt of the force at the point of attack. Is a little plodding coming off line of scrimmage and into his routes."
Overall, Leggett is a decent prospect for the H-back position as he has the size and skill set to play the position in the NFL.
