Scouting Report
Royster decided to pull his name from the draft after his junior season and returned to Penn State in 2010. He rushed for 1,014 yards to finish his career as the school's career leader with 3,932, passing Hall of Famer Curt Warner. Royster also became the first Penn State player with three 1,000-yard rushing seasons after running for 1,236 as a sophomore in 2008 and 1,169 in 2009. He had his best receiving season as a senior, catching 25 balls for 202 yards and a touchdown. Royster, who had nine rushes for 38 yards and a TD in the East-West Shrine Game, is a solid inside runner but isn't an explosive back and lacks breakaway speed. He isn't a powerful runner and struggles to gain yards after contact. Among RBs at the NFL combine, Royster finished as a top performer in the 20-yard shuttle as he was tied for eighth with a time of 4.18 seconds. Royster will likely fall to the second day of the draft and could be selected as high as the fifth round.
