ASU Running Back Kalen Ballage Drafted By Dolphins

Kalen Ballage

In four years, Arizona State running back Kalen Ballage showed his home run potential and plenty of athleticism.

Now, the Miami Dolphins will see if he can continue that trend after selecting him in the fourth round round.

Highlighted by a record-setting eight touchdown performance against Texas Tech in 2016, Ballage had 450 rushes, 1,984 rushing yards and 29 total touchdowns in his four-year career while splitting the bulk of the carries with fellow running back Demario Richard.

In 2016, far and away his best year of his college career, he also had 450 receiving yards. 

Here is what Pro Football Focus had to say about Ballage:

Kalen Ballage is a player of intriguing potential and versatility, whose stock is likely to rise in the lead up to the draft. He is an impressive athlete in a big body, and has the ability to perform well on the ground, catching the ball in the pass game and returning kicks. He was extremely impressive as a receiver during the week of Senior Bowl practices and will likely blow up at the combine during workouts, but teams will need to reconcile that with relatively pedestrian college production.
