Holyfield can best be described as a “bulldog” which makes perfect sense since he was one in college. The Georgia talent is one of the smaller backs in the draft, but he makes up for that with his strong build, power and speed. Blessed with athleticism from his father, boxing great Evander Holyfield, Elijah has the ability to show patience and turn on the afterburners at any given time. He doesn’t have much experience as a pass-catcher, though, as he only had five receptions in all of 2018.
