2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon

Stewart is your prototypical downhill runner with a low center of gravity and can also break long runs, showing great speed. Stewart runs with purpose every time he touches the ball. Stewart has both strength and speed, which gives him the ability to turn a small gain into a touchdown. Stewart is an adequate receiver, but does not show a great natural ability to catch the ball. He is a very compact runner and hits the hole hard every time. Playing in a spread offense does not lend itself to envision running backs in a pro style offense. He runs with power inside and speed outside. Stewart averaged 5.4 ypc in 2006 and 6.2 ypc in 2007 as a starter. Stewart turned in big games against the Pac-10's best defense in USC with 103 yards and 111 yards on just 15 carries against Michigan. Stewart is a game changer and he will contribute immediately to the team he gets drafted by. He is a workhorse back, proving that he could handle the load without having much of a passing game after Dixon got hurt. Stewart proved he could carry the team with his 251 yard rushing performance in Oregon's bowl game against a stingy Southern Florida defense. Stewart erased any doubts about his speed after running a 4.46 forty yard dash at nearly 230 pounds. Stewart had a recent surgery on a turf-toe injury and has sent his draft status tumbling. He seemed to be battling to be the second running back taken in the draft, but with his health now in question he will likely not be taken before the end of the first round or possibly well into the second round.
