Homer got his chance with the Hurricanes when Mark Walton, a 2018 fourth-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, was hurt in 2017. Previously a three-star recruit and little-used backup, Homer totaled 966 yards and eight touchdowns on 163 carries (5.9 average) as a sophomore. As the full-time starter in 2018, he found the end zone less (four TDs) but had 989 yards on 164 carries (6.0 average). He also had 37 catches for 405 yards and a TD across his final two years.
At 201 pounds with 4.48 speed, Homer brings plenty of burst and elusiveness, with a suddenness and fluidity that helps him attack the perimeter. He also shows good power for his size, with the contact balance to shake off arm tackles and power to fall forward for extra yardage. His urgency as a runner translates to blocking, where he's well above average. He also flashes as a receiver and excels on special teams.
The biggest hole in Homer's game is inconsistency running inside, less because he's undersized and more because he lacks natural vision and instincts. He often fails to see or feel holes open, especially on the backside, and winds up stuck at the line without options. He also fumbled four times on just 164 carries in 2018, an issue that must be cleaned up for him to earn a role.
