# # #
QB-Devante Kincade, Grambling: Similar prospect to Russell Wilson.
RB-Gus Edwards, Rutgers: Between the tackles runner with the film to back it up.
FB-Jaylen Samuels: No true position but this player won’t be drafted high enough.
WR-Vyncint Smith, Limestone: A head-turning pro day has earned him a day three grade.
WR-Charles Holland, Tiffin: Not on the media radar but this player won’t be lost amongst NFL scouts.
TE-Deon Yelder, Western Kentucky: Late season riser who popped up on NFL radar.
OL-Jamil Demby, Maine: This is a future starter at the next level.
OL-Dejon Allen, Hawaii: He has proven to be a monumental obstacle for defenders to try and get by.
OL-Alex Officer, Pittsburgh: A non-traditional center who weighs in at nearly 350 pounds and can move.
OL-Cody O’Connell: Mount Cody was shuttered from the combine but there are some traits to work with here.
OL-Matt Diaz, Wagner: Recently had a workout with the Eagles and Texans.
K-Lane Clark, Tennessee State: Brings the boom beyond the 50 but needs to wrangle in some of his accuracy woes inside that range.
DT-PJ Hall, Sam Houston State: Red flags will knock his draft stock down but he could be an immediate impact rookie.
DT-Bruce Hector, USF: Has played in various schemes but is capable of being a backfield disruptor from the interior.
DE-RJ McIntosh, Miami: Could wind up being the top 3-4 defensive end prospect of this draft class.
DE-Ade Aruna, Tulane: Raw upside and athleticism makes him a very wise draft investment.
OLB-Marquis Haynes, Ole Miss: A forgotten man amongst this year’s pass-rushers who could be a third down specialist.
OLB-Darius Jackson, Jacksonville State: Explosive first step and burst off the edge will see him selected higher than you might think.
ILB-Ed Shockley, Villanova: True quarterback of the defense who calls out plays, leads and flies around the football field.
CB-Tre Herndon, Vanderbilt: A proven cover corner in the SEC, he matched up against opponents’ top receivers on a weekly basis.
CB-Parry Nickerson, Tulane: Was the combine a wake up call to teams not aware of his talents? This is a Sunday starter.
S-Natrell Jamerson, Nebraska: All he does is make big time
S-Ezekiel Turner, Washington: This is a good looking player with great size/athleticism who can be a valuable backup and play all special teams.
P-Matt White, Monmouth: One of the top punter prospects in this year’s draft class; also a kickoff specialist.
