What You Need to Know:

  • The Bears drafted Herbert in Round 6.
  • Herbert took the backfield lead as a 2017 sophomore at Kansas but then ceded that control to true freshman Pooka Williams in 2018. Williams is a 5’9, 170-pound back who just went undrafted as an early entrant.
  • Herbert finished his college career with a big 5th year at Virginia Tech: 154 carries, 1,182 yards, 8 TDs, 7.7 yards per carry, plus 10-179-1 receiving. (See some of how he got there in our Dynasty Prospect Scouting Report.)
  • Herbert ranked 6th among 238 draft-eligible RBs in Pro Football Focus rushing grade in 2020. He also ranked 6th in yards after contact per attempt.
  • Herbert delivered an elite 126.3 elusive rating. For some context, Najee Harris posted a 100.5 in 2020; Travis Etienne a 100.6.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Herbert will need to fight to get as high as 3rd on Chicago’s RB depth chart this season, so he won’t be on the redraft radar in most cases. But the only players clearly ahead of him to begin with are starter David Montgomery; Tarik Cohen, who’s coming off an ACL tear; and 29-year-old Damien Williams, who opted out of 2020, got released by the Chiefs and signed a 1-year contract with just $125,000 guaranteed. Herbert gets a friendlier path than most 6th-round RBs.

He’s a dynasty stash and worth keeping an eye on in case of backfield injuries in Chicago.

The Bears picked up RB Khalil Herbert in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft. After an underwhelming stint at Kansas, Herbert transferred to Virginia Tech and enjoyed a breakout 2020. As a 22-year-old senior, the Florida native tallied 154-1,182-8 in 11 games. His 7.68 YPC ranked 4th nationally. On film, Herbert excelled both after contact and as a contact-dodger. He also exits college with only 1 career fumble (507 career touches). On the negative side, Herbert is still largely unproven in the receiving game. He at least managed 17.9 YPC on his 10 receptions last season. In Chicago, he could be fighting Damien Williams for a 2021 roster spot.
