Devon Achane

21-Year-Old Running BackRB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
If the severely undersized Achane succeeds as a running back in the NFL then he will be the first of his type since 1997, when Warrick Dunn, at all of 176 pounds, somehow thrived as a starter. Those are long odds -- there have been other small, fast running backs since Dunn, but almost all disappointed. Then again, none of those backs was quite like Dunn, or Achane. At 5-9, 185, Achane ran a 4.32 40 at the combine, and his 100 meter times as a track athlete at Texas A&M -- similar to Tyreek Hill's times -- lend credence to the idea that his playing speed is even faster. A third-round pick, Achane isn't likely to take on huge workloads, but he reportedly was up to 192 pounds by May and planning to add more. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson have workload limitations of their own, so Achane could get a consistent dose of jet sweeps and outside runs with pre-snap motion to get him in space and put his speed to use.

Speedy runner headed to Miami
RBMiami Dolphins
April 28, 2023
The Dolphins selected Achane in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 84th overall.
Tyreek Hill is the fastest player in the NFL, but Achane is one of the few who might be able to keep up in a race. In the past, Achane has logged 100-meter times similar to what Hill used to run, and the Texas A&M product was reportedly not 100 percent healthy when he ran his 4.32-second 40 at the combine. Achane has workload limitations due to his tiny frame (5-foot-9, 188 pounds), but coach Mike McDaniel might be the brightest offensive play caller in the NFL, and it wouldn't be surprising if he cooks up something impressive with Achane as a big-play specialist.
