Ask any Oklahoma fan and they’ll tell you, Rhamondre Stevenson was a steal in NFL Draft last spring. The 6-0/227 bowling ball of a back averaged 7.15 yards per carry in 19 game appearances for the Sooners, racking up 1,180 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns along the way. In six games played for Oklahoma last fall he averaged 110.8 yards per game and set career high with 186 yards on the ground in OU’s 55-20 thumping of Florida in the Cotton Bowl.
The Cotton Bowl effort earned him the Most Outstanding Offensive Player award and set the course for him to be a not so average fourth round selection (120th overall) in the 2021 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Defensive teammate Myles Bryant found out the hard way this week that Stevenson is anything but average.
Bryant is going into his second season with the Pats and made nine game appearances in 2020. He was on the business end of Stevenson’s bruising running style here as the play set of a round of elation and cheers from both teammates and fans.
