Jeremy Theron McNichols (born December 26, 1995) is an American football running back for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Boise State, and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Early years

McNichols attended Lakewood High School in Lakewood, California before transferring to Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, California for his senior year.[1] As a youngster, McNichols and fellow NFL player John Ross played in Snoop Dogg's youth football league in Long Beach, California.[2] He played running back and wide receiver in high school, and his versatility led to him earning the nickname "McWeapon".[2] During his career he rushed for 877 yards with nine touchdowns and had 72 receptions for 934 yards and 10 touchdowns. He originally committed to the University of Utah to play college football but later changed to Boise State University.[3][4]

College career

McNichols enrolled at Boise State in early August before the start of fall camp.[5] Heading into the season McNichols planned on being redshirted and sat out the first five games before the redshirt was pulled. McNichols ended up playing in nine games as a true freshman during the 2014 season. He rushed for 159 yards on 17 carries with a rushing touchdown and had 15 receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown.[6] As a sophomore in 2015, he started 12 games, rushing for 1,337 yards on 240 carries and 20 touchdowns.[7][8] He also had 460 receiving yards and six touchdowns on 51 receptions.

Professional career

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fifth round, 162nd overall, in the 2017 NFL Draft.[9] He was the 17th running back selected in that year's draft.[10][11] He exhibited maturity issues and inability to read defenses which was documented in the twelfth season of Hard Knocks and was released by the team on September 2, 2017.[12]

San Francisco 49ers

On September 4, 2017, McNichols was signed to the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad.[13] He was promoted to the active roster on November 29, 2017.[14]
