2023 NFL Draft: Tulane RB Tyjae Spears Has Early-Round Potential

The Green Wave's running back has the talent to be a sleeper in the 2023 NFL Draft. Read more about the potential Spears brings to his team.

The thought of being a nationally recognized prospect is more than flattering for Tulane running back Tyjae Spears.It’s not because he doesn’t have the talent to become an early-round draft pick, which he absolutely does.

Spears is an explosive, speedy and physical runner with the ability to do serious damage when he’s healthy. There’s been not a single single season in his career in which he has averaged fewer than six yards per carry.

But he’s most recognized around Tulane by his incredibly humble nature that’s driven him to the top and appealed to so many of his teammates.

“It makes me smile, what you just told me right now (on catching national attention),” Spears said. “But honestly, I don’t feed into that.

You know, I come out here and work with my head down every day. Honestly, I’m off social media right now and I don’t really look into all those things.”

Spears has dealt with injury issues, but is easily one of the biggest highlights of Tulane’s team,

finishing out the 2021 season with 129 carries for 863 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.
