Strong Points: Very patient runner. Good jump-cutter. Strong lower body to break tackles. Good vision, and always keeps his shoulders square to the line, making good decisions. Very quick burst once he sees an opening. Very good balance. Keeps his feet after contact and can restart if not wrapped up. Returned kickoffs as a freshman. Showed good hands at the combine.
Weak Points: Lacks size and growth potential. Rotated with another back in 2018 and his production dropped. His receiving stats have dropped in each of the past two seasons. Short arms (28 7/8").
The Way We See It: A small but productive mid-major back, Singletary is quicker than fast but has better-than-adequate speed. He is a patient runner who allows things to set up before using a very good burst to the hole. He's not a true cutback runner but more of a jump cutter with a quick burst. He runs low to the ground and gets yardage after first contact, but he is not a really powerful guy. His overall receiving numbers are good (51 career receptions), but he had only six catches in '18. He will have to be a role player at the next level but can be effective if used the right way. Give him 15 touches a game and he will produce.
Arthur Arkush: Yes, his 40 time disappointed, but Singletary's film reveals plenty of juice, big-time lateral quickness and dangerous stop-start ability. He has the vision and patience to let plays develop before putting his foot in the ground and taking off. Singletary is relatively unproven as a pass catcher (only six receptions last season) and must show he can take an NFL licking and continue ticking, likely in a measured change-up role whose creativity ideally matches his run style. Singletary is unlikely to ever be a feature guy, but he's tough and has the burst and playmaking chops to succeed.
