Abram Smith
Running BackRB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Smith will move back to the running back position after spending a season as Baylor's weak-side linebacker. Baylor will need talent at the position as no single player rushed for over 100 yards in a game last season. He'll back up Trestan Ebner who will have a signficant role in the passing game. Expect Smith to be more of the bruising and physical presence in the backfield, although he has limited reps at the position with just 12 career carries for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Converts back to running back
July 21, 2021
Smith will move from linebacker to running back for the 2021 season, according to head coach Dave Aranda.
ANALYSIS
After spending the 2020 season on defense, Smith will return to the Bears' backfield for 2021 where he'll be expected to bring physicality to the running back position. Per Dave Aranda, Baylor needed a downhill runner who "invites impacts at the second level", so the 217-pound Smith would seem to be a good fit. In 2019, Smith carried eight times for 35 yards and a touchdown, but he should be in line for a bigger role in 2021.
