Most outlets have Lloyd going in the 4th round, but his performance at the practices will catch the eyes of many a-NFL scout, likely raising his draft stock. The voting was done by his teammates on the National team, which is always a nice feather in ones cap.
The 5’9″ 209 lbs junior spent one season with the Trojans and had the best year of his career. He rushed for 820 yards at an incredible 7.1 yards per carry. That puts him fourth among all running backs and second among power-five rushers. Lloyd also caught 13 passes for 232 yards. He was third on the team with 9 rushing touchdowns. Lloyd played 2 seasons for the South Carolina Gamecocks, redshirting his true freshman year.
