Summary: After totaling 4,975 rush yards and garnering two First-Team All-State selections in high school, Singletary opted to stay in-state and churn out numbers for Florida Atlantic.

In just three seasons, he totaled 66 rushing touchdowns and 4,289 yards for the Owls.

According to analytics site Pro Football Focus, Singletary ranked second in FBS in 2017 in missed tackles forced on carries and second among returning running backs with 917 breakaway yards.

He became the first Owl to be named All-America (Second Team) by the Associated Press that season after tying for the lead with 301 carries and finishing fourth in FBS with 1,920 yards on the ground.

Singletary's numbers in on-field workouts don't jump off the page — he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds — but as's Lance Zierlein noted in Singletary's pre-draft bio, "high-end production seems to follow him."

Zierlein dubbed Singletary a "touchdown monster with vision and power near the goal line" but said he also is a "volume runner in a change-of-pace body."

Stacking up (before the combine): Draft analyst Dane Brugler, who writes for The Athletic, ranked Singletary as the second-best running back in this year's class. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks moved Singletary from **second to third after the combine**.

Singletary was not among NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's list of the top 50 prospects.

Keep on motoring: Singletary and his father (Devonn Singletary, Sr.) are both nicknamed "Motor." Devonn played collegiately at Norfolk State.
