Zach Charbonnet Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Charbonnet has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- Rusher with a great combination of overall size and strength with excellent speed
- Has the feet and feel running between the tackles and in the open field. He has very good vision and the patience to pick through defenses
- Fights for extra yardage and is reliable in short-yardage situations
- Demonstrated the ability to track the ball over his shoulder. Good flexibility and balance to adjust to the poorly thrown pass. Good vision and patience for screens
- Has good vision to find the hole and get North-South
- Loses momentum when he gears down to change direction and it takes him a few steps to accelerate back to full speed
- His hands are not great and he drops passes that he’s not expecting – needs to improve his overall awareness
- Offers little in pass protection and poor technique cut blocking

Zach Charbonnet in Mock Drafts
According to NFL Mock Draft Database, Charbonnet is a projected second-round pick. Running back is always tricky to predict as it is only a need for a few specific teams. Running back value can also be found in the later rounds often so teams will look to fill other needs before running back. Below is a list of mock drafts and where they have Charbonnet being taken.

Would Zach Charbonnet Fit on the Packers?
Running back is not really a need for the Packers especially with the news that they are going to try and restructure the Aaron Jones deal. AJ Dillon is the short yardage guy as well so the Packers don’t have a need there. The second round is just too high for the Packers to reach for a running back that has some pretty big deficiencies.
Check Out Another Prospect That Could Fit For the Packers
I like Charbonnet as a prospect a lot just not for the Packers. If GM Brian Gutekunst is really set on drafted a running back in this draft, I would rather see him wait until the late rounds to do so.
