Missouri RB Cody Schrader continues his incredible ascension with a strong Senior Bowl week

There isn’t a much more undervalued group over the years than the running back position. Though, with two going in the first round last year, that could perhaps change in the coming years. While it’s unlikely we will see a first-round back in the 2024 draft, a few names have impressed early on in the pre-draft process. One of those names is former Missouri running back Cody Schrader.

Having an extremely productive year at Missouri, Schrader looked to follow that up with an impressive performance against top talent across the country. Not only did he succeed in impressing during practices leading up to the main event, Schrader showed off during the all-star game itself. While he was limited in his rushing, given he only had 12 yards on seven carries, Schrader really showed off his shiftiness in the passing attack, hauling in 54 yards on just five catches.

This is just another major step forward for Schrader’s quite frankly inspiring story. From a starter at division II Truman state to a walk on to Missouri where he became their top offensive weapon. It’s clear Schrader has a massive chip on his shoulder and the grit to make it to the next level. It’s early on but if Schrader continues his impressive rise he could find himself going within the first three rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.
