[Dynasty] 2019 NFL Draft Prospects

Recommended Posts

FAU junior RB Kerrith Whyte Jr. declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Whyte (5'10/200) joining his fellow FAU RB Devin Singletary in jumping into draft proceedings. While Singletary understandably received the majority of work in the Owls' backfield this year, his teammate managed to carve out a nice role of his own, rushing for 866 yards (6.5 YPC) and eight touchdowns across 12 games played. He also proved to be an adept return man, sometimes a stock booster for NFL purposes. He's going to need to stand out during the draft process given that he never received a starting run with the Owls.

Memphis junior RB Darrell Henderson will not play in the team's Birmingham Bowl date with Wake Forest on Dec. 22.

No real surprise with this one after Henderson declared for the draft on Wednesday. The electric junior sprints off into the sunset having rushed for 1,909 yards (8.9 YPC) and 22 touchdowns during the 2018 season. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller views him as a potential Day 2 selection for the spring. As for Memphis' plight sans Henderson, Patrick Taylor (1,012 yards, 15 touchdowns) is about as able a backup as you will find in the country. He'll look to put the hurt on the Demon Deacons -- now in a lead role -- upcoming.

Benjamin Snell declares for 2019 NFL Draft

Kentucky junior RB Benny Snell declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Snell (5'11/223) has been the definition of a workhorse during his career at Kentucky, topping 1,000 while registering double-digit touchdowns in each of his three seasons on campus. For the just-completed campaign, he logged 1,330 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Physicality is the buzzword with Snell. He's also a strong pass-blocker and scheme-versatile to boot. What to look for during his evaluating process -- Snell's athletic testing numbers later this winter are going to be crucial, as he's not the fastest nor shiftiest of backs. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller forwarded him as a potential Day 2 selection in his Dec. 7 scouting notebook. Miller, it should be noted, does not believe there is a Round 1 running back in the draft-eligible class for 2019. This seems to be a consensus view at this juncture. We'll see if things change as the process moves along on its merry way.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love will not play in the Sun Bowl.

Love (5'10/202) will instead focus on the NFL Draft, and it's without a doubt the correct decision for him. So much of Love's draft grade will be injury related and risking further damage in the bowl game would be a potential detriment to his draft stock. Love has shown a ton of explosion at times -- he averaged 8.1 YPC on 263 attempts in 2017 -- but that was stolen from him this year while playing on a bummed ankle. The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak notes that Love is being viewed as a Day 3 selection at the moment, but Love could beat that assessment if he can show NFL doctors that his ankle injuries aren't an issue moving forward.
