Scouting Report:

Sherman is going to be a solid blocker and receiver at FB in the NFL.

Positives: Good size and athletic ability. Shows good initial pop as a blocker. Adjusts well in space and moves well to pick up blockers on the move. Is physical and likes contact, not afraid to take on a larger defender as a blocker or ball carrier. Catches the ball very smoothly out of the backfield and has some ability to gain yardage after the catch thanks to his running style and leg drive.

Negatives: Offers very little as a runner and doesn’t have much burst or vision to find running room when he gets a hand off.

Overall: Sherman may not be an elite fullback but he blocks effectively and catches the ball effectively. He should be a pretty solid lead blocker in the NFL and will catch the ball well out of the backfield and can get yards after the catch. The problem is that he isn’t effective running the ball out of the backfield which hurts his value because he isn’t as well rounded as a couple other fullbacks in this class.

Projection: 5th round. Fullbacks aren’t in very high demand and I could see him being a solid value here.
