[Dynasty] 2019 NFL Draft Prospects

Pro Football Focus notes that Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin was ninth last year in "breakaway yardage."

Gaskin had 633 of his 1,282 yards come on breakaway yardage, or for those unfamiliar with the term, yards on runs that goes for 15-plus yards. While that number ranked ninth among returning tailbacks, it pales in comparison to some others who had a substantially higher percentage of their yardage in these type of runs. That should be seen as a positive, as it speaks to Gaskin's ability to consistently churn out four-plus yards; something NFL teams love to see. Gaskin's lack of size (5'10/190) is going to hurt his NFL stock, but his talent gives him a shot of being a professional tailback.

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert had a passer rating of 105.9 on standard passes last season.

Best mark in the Pac-12 among returning passers, according to Pro Football Focus. The outlet earlier passed along an additional juicy nugget, in that Herbert posted a passer rating of 121.6 on plays which lasted longer than 2.6 seconds. On the whole, the 6-foot-6, 225-pounder threw for 1,983 yards with a 15/5 TD/INT ratio in eight games last season. His numbers would have been more robust had he not been waylaid by a broken collarbone for a chunk of the campaign. Herbert has the potential to be drafted first overall next spring.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love averaged 4.28 yards after contact last season.

Love (5'10/184) is most well known for his bolt-of-lightning touchdown gallops, but he's also a tough runner who does not shy away from contact. Per Pro Football Focus, those 4.28 yards averaged after contact were good for ninth-most in the FBS among returning backs. So long as he can maintain his health -- he dealt with a nagging ankle injury throughout the 2017 campaign -- he'll be on the short list of Heisman candidates this fall. Love rushed for 2,112 yards and 19 touchdowns last season.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Ohio State junior WR Binjimen Victor a second-round grade coming into the season.

Victor is one of four players to get first or second-round pick grades, joining defensive end Nick Bosa, defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones and safety Jordan Fuller. He's also one of four wideouts to get a Day 2 grade along with Parris Campbell, Austin Mack and K.J. Hill. "The junior wideout has excellent length and legitimate speed," writes Pauline. "He presents himself as a vertical receiver and also catches the underneath routes on a regular basis." There doesn't seem to be much consensus as to who the top wideout on the Buckeyes is among analysts, but with a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame, it's easy to see why Victor tops Pauline -- and several others -- boards to start the season.

Iowa junior TE Noah Fant is among the tight ends who were placed on the John Mackey Award watch list.

There were 64 total players placed on the Mackey Award watch list; an award that goes to the top tight end in the country. Fant is considered one of the top contenders for the award, and many view him as the top prospect at the position for the 2019 draft. Other high-profile names on the list include Missouri's Albert Okwuegbunam, LSU's Foster Moreau, Notre Dame's Alize Mack, and Oregon's Jacob Breeland. The full list can be viewed in the link below.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson is a "mobile passer with a great head for the game."

"In some ways he reminds me of Johnny Manziel with his incredible ability to elude the rush and pick up yardage with his legs," Pauline writes, before adding another scintillating comp in noting that the 6-foot-2, 193-pound Patterson flashes at times in a similar way to Baker Mayfield in terms of his field sense and wherewithal. The analyst absolutely loves what he's seen on film from the former Ole Miss signal-caller's approach when a given play begins to devolve. All of this is encouraging, though Pauline does caution that "[h]is lack of size and inability to drive the deep pass accurately are a major concern when projecting him to the next level." Draft Analyst stamps Sugar Shea with a first-round grade at this juncture, believing that the quarterback could have room to rise on Day 1 so long as his 2017 season does not go off the rails in either the health or on-field play departments.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Michigan senior RB LJ Scott a third-round grade coming into the year.

Scott has had injury concerns, but when healthy, the 6-foot, 233-pound tailback has flashes next-level ability with the Spartans. "Scott has the size and power to pound the interior, enough short area quickness to make defenders miss or turn the corner as well as the pass catching hands to be a receiving threat out of the backfield," Pauline writes. He also calls Scott a "better version of Royce Freeman," the former Oregon Duck who went in the third-round to Denver. We could see Scott go in a similar position come 2019 if he puts it all together in his senior season.
