Gallman left Clemson after three seasons as one of the school's most decorated and productive running backs, finishing his career third in program history in rushing touchdowns (34) and fifth in rushing yards (3,429). He also broke Raymond Priester's single-season school record for rushing yards in 2015, and Priester's career record for 100-yard rushing games in 2016 with 17. Clemson was 17-0 in those contests.


Playing alongside first-round picks Deshaun Watson (12th overall) and Mike Williams (seventh), Gallman helped the Tigers to a 38-5 record over the last three seasons. Clemson made back-to-back trips to the CFP National Championship Game, winning the rematch against Alabama this past January.

Has quality burst through line of scrimmage to rip through arm tackles and attack the second level. Runs with plus effort every time he touches the ball. Keeps feet grinding through second level contact. Uses shoulders as legitimate weapons of force against would-be tacklers. Creates additional yards through functional wiggle. Good outside-in cuts to defeat contain. Angular runner with build-up speed to win a race around the edge. Hard charging. Trusted option on fourth and short situations. Decisive in the red zone and brings some attitude with him. Finished with 28 rushing touchdowns over last two seasons. Strong second effort near the goal line when his initial charge is stopped. Will offer some help as pass catcher.
