Garrett Wolfe RB 5'8 183 Northern Illinois 4.43

By: Robert Davis

After redshirting as a freshman, and sitting out the following year for academic issues, Garrett Wolfe took over for the departed Michael Turner and made Husky fans forget all about Turner. In his first season on the field in 2004, Wolfe ran for 1,656 yards and 18 touchdowns, along with 10 catches for 117 yards and three touchdowns through the air. In just nine games in 2005, Wolfe ran for 1,580 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground, and added 20 receptions and 222 yards and a touchdown out of the backfield. Wolfe closed out his career by leading the nation in rushing with 1,928 yards and 18 touchdowns, while adding 249 yards and a touchdown on 28 catches.

Garrett Wolfe is a very versatile running back. He has fantastic quickness and agility, and the speed to break off long runs with ease. He wastes no steps when he sees a hole, and immediately jumps right through it and takes off. He’s not afraid to run between the tackles and always finishes his runs. Wolfe can also be a threat out of the backfield. With his speed and big play ability, he could be a factor on special teams as well.

The obvious knock on Wolfe’s game is his size. He is extremely small, and it will keep him from being an every down back in the NFL. His body will not hold up with the amount of carries a feature back needs, and he does not pack enough punch because of his small frame.

If it weren’t for size, Wolfe would be one of the elite backs in the draft. His size is a major drawback, and it hurts his potential and draft stock. He could be a great change of pace back and return man in the NFL though.
