2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Baron Batch, RB, Texas Tech
The 2009 season was Batch's year to take over the running back job. He did just that. This was still a team that passed a lot and Batch did catch 57 passes for 395 yards, but it was his ability to punch the ball into the end zone or pick up the tough yards on the ground that made his season so successful. On the year Batch rushed for 884 yards on 168 carries and reached the end zone 14 times.
Batch could be a very solid third down back in the NFL, but the 2010 season has been very disappointing for him. Under a new coaching staff, it was expected that the Red Raiders would spend more time on the ground. They have, but Batch has had to split carries and has seen his yards per carry and touchdown numbers dip significantly. Batch will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to work his way up into the middle rounds, but should get drafted at some point as a solid pass blocker and short yardage back.
