Let’s get to know one of Kellen Moore’s new toys.
When the Dallas Cowboys drafted Tony Pollard in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, they got a lot more than just a backup running back. Pollard is a serious playmaker that can work as a runner, receiver, and kick returner.
Pollard is coming off of a season where he gained 1,010 yards from scrimmage for Memphis. This included 552 rushing yards on 78 carries plus 458 receiving yards on 39 receptions. He scored 10 total touchdowns in 2018: six rushing, three receiving, and one on a kick-off return.
In the past three seasons he has returned seven kickoffs to the house including four touchdowns on only 22 returns in 2017.
Let’s take a look at what makes Pollard special in the above video.
