Willing to do the dirty work, inside runs, taking on blitzing LBs to protect his QB. Short but stout, runs behind shoulder pads and uses his build to his advantage, great contact balance. Patient ball carrier, paces himself well, allowing blocks/lanes to develop. Agile runner can quickly cut/shift from inside to outside. Does a good job of pressing the line of scrimmage and cutting as lanes develop, reminds me a bit of David Montgomery in the way he works/maneuvers before he even passes the LOS. Changes direction on the go very well and can quickly get to full speed after changing direction. 2023 vs. Penn St., 3rd quarter, 9:13, takes a carry, a lot of congestion in the middle, navigates through clutter and off tackle behind pulling lineman, LB has him squared up with about 3 yards between them, Corum strings the run outside to allow his lineman to get to the block, clearing up more space for him to run. Natural hands catcher. I like his ability to churn & get through contact/tight spaces on short yardage situations.


Height/Weight, it will be interesting to see how he measures at the combine and what his RAS (Relative Athletic Score) looks like. Missed some time in 2022 due to a knee injury, due to this as well as his age when entering the draft, some teams may be concerned about longevity. Though he displays good hands as a receiver, his route tree is limited and he doesn’t create much separation from LBs when releasing from the backfield.


56* career rushing TDs is the most all time at the University of Michigan. Corum injured his knee 11/19/22 against Illinois, recovered fully during the off-season and made it back for week 1 of the 2023 season. Age (turned 23 in November, will turn 24 during his rookie season) & a decent amount of mileage, over 700 career touches (rushing & receiving). Corum is a disciplined runner that has a strong build, great instincts and the ability to find space and create productive runs. Corum has deceptive speed and quickness. I have some concerns with his age and mileage racked up while at UM but I believe he has all the skills to be a productive back at the next level. I see Corum going off the board around the 3rd round.
