A four-year starter at Minnesota, Ibrahim was the bell-cow back in offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca’s balanced (gap/zone) run scheme. At a program known for productive running backs, he climbed to the top of the Gophers’ record books with the most rushing yards in a single-game (263), single-season (1,665)and career (4,668), also setting the rushing touchdown records for a single game (4), single-season (20) and career (53). Ibrahim stays behind his square, low pads, and his run balance eliminates gimmies for would-be tacklers, forcing defenders to wrap and finish him to the ground. He senses when the sea is about to part but doesn’t have the fluid hips or run-away gear to escape high-level pursuit. Overall, Ibrahim doesn’t have desired elusiveness or explosion as an NFL runner, but teams looking for a physical, no-nonsense presence in the run game will appreciate his decisiveness, vision and power. He will need the right fit to secure a backup role on an NFL depth chart.
