[Dynasty] 2020 NFL Draft Prospects

Recommended Posts

Quote

FAU senior TE Harrison Bryant accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Bryant (6'5/240) was a first team All-CUSA performer last season and has built himself up to a draft-able prospect after receiving just a two-star rating out of high school. This year, the senior owns a 44-651-1 receiving line across nine games played. While not the most adept of blockers, Bryant brings to the table palatable size and a pair of velvet soft hands. He'll likely be in the Day 2 mix come the spring.

Liberty senior WR Antonio Gandy-Golden accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

While Gandy-Golden has plied his trade almost completely off the national map, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound senior has legitimate draft intrigue. He has topped 1,000 yards receiving in each of his two years in the FBS -- in just eight games this season, he's already up to 1,082 yards -- and comes equipped with palatable size and a knack for coming down with tough catches. He's unlikely to crack Day 1, but Day 2 could potentially be in play if everything breaks right for the Liberty standout over the coming months.

Purdue redshirt senior TE Brycen Hopkins accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Hopkins (6'4/247) currently owns a 42-538-3 receiving line through eight games played this season. He has already set a career best for receptions in a year and is well within range to set bests in yardage and touchdowns as well. On his most recent Big Board, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Hopkins as the No. 4 draft-eligible tight end prospect for the spring. Day 2 or even Day 1 could potentially be in play for Hopkins should he turn in a sharp spring evaluation.

Arizona State senior WR Brandon Aiyuk accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Aiyuk (6'1/198) leads all active FBS WRs in YAC this season, per PFF (Tylan Wallace actually technically leads, but is done for the year with a torn ACL), putting up 508 yards after the catch in eight games. On the whole, the senior owns a 38-740-5 receiving line. He is an adept performer in the screen game, as once he has the ball in his hands, the headaches begin for the opposing defense. As for his draft stock, he has some real fans, among them Pro Football Network's AJ Schulte, who wrote in early October that "Aiyuk combines great size and athletic ability with good route running ability, giving him a complete package of skills to show off to NFL Draft scouts." Schulte believes that Aiyuk will test out well come the combine. Keep an eye on the ASU standout this spring.

South Carolina senior WR Bryan Edwards accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Edwards (6'3/215) accepts on the heels of a scintillating performance put forth in a win over Vanderbilt last Saturday, when he registered a 14-139-1 receiving line. Those 14 catches tied a school record while the 139 yards were a personal best. For the season, the senior owns a 62-726-5 receiving line across nine games played. As a prospect, Edwards plays with superior physicality and body control. Speed and agility tests in the spring are going to be key for his draft stock.

Tennessee senior WR Jauan Jennings leads all FBS WRs with 21 broken tackles, according to Pro Football Focus.

The former QB is nothing if not tough. At 6-foot-3, 208-pounds, Jennings has the right blend of strength and mobility to break tackles through sheer power as well as last-second twitchiness. In part because of his propensity to break tackles, Jennings has totaled over 700 yards and brought in seven touchdown passes this season. Jennings has not accepted a Senior Bowl invite yet, but with the way he is playing, it will be no surprise if he accepts one in the coming days.

USC senior WR Michael Pittman has accepted his invite to the 2020 Senior Bowl, according to the event's official Twitter handle.

Despite all the chaos regarding USC's QB situation this year, Pittman (6'4/220) has found a way to produce. Pittman leads the Trojans in yards (792) and touchdowns (8). The nature of Graham Harrell's quick-hitting Air Raid offense has brought down Pittman's yards per reception a bit, but he still leads the team in that department too (among players with at least 20 catches), and has been plenty explosive when given opportunities. Expect Pittman to be a menace on vertical routes in 1-on-1 drills during Senior Bowl practices.

Ohio State junior EDGE Chase Young will not play against Maryland on Saturday due to a potential NCAA violation.

This development was first reported by Letterman Row and subsequently confirmed by Ohio State. OSU's statement referred to a "possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into." Young (6'5/265) will miss Saturday, for sure, but could also miss time beyond that. Letterman Row is reporting that the Buckeyes are hopeful that this matter can be resolved in a timely manner, allowing Young -- currently sitting on 13.5 sacks -- to return to the field before the end of the season. In the short term, Tyreke Smith, Tyler Friday, Zach Harrison and Javontae Jean-Baptiste are candidates to step up with the junior leader out. This is a developing story and if any further information breaks, we'll pass along word.

Updating a previous item, the lawyer for Ohio State junior DE Chase Young wrote that his client's NCAA suspension was the result of a "small loan from a close family friend."

Per Tim Nevius, Young's lawyer, the loan was repaid "months ago." The star edge rusher's representation indicated that he is "working to restore [Young's] eligibility" and subsequently took a dig at the NCAA for "unfair and outdated" rules. While Nevius works to help hash this thing out, Young will be out suspended. He'll be sidelined for Saturday's game against Maryland, to start.

Florida senior RB Lamical Perine has accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl in January.

Perine (5'11/218) is averaging 4.6 yards per game on the season, rushing for 491 yards and four touchdowns. The senior running back has also caught 24 passes for 127 yards and two more scores. Back in August, Tony Pauline of the Pro Football Network gave Perine a 6th-7th round grade. But his production has lagged in comparison to 2018, when he rushed for 826 yards and seven touchdowns, so Perine's play the remainder of this season and in the Senior Bowl will have a significant impact on his NFL future.

Sources tell ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit that Ohio State junior EDGE Chase Young is expected to be suspended for four games.

Herbstreit also reports that the Buckeyes believe the suspension will reduced to two-to-three games upon appeal. The punishment comes from Young taking a loan from a close family friend. Considered the top prospect in the class almost universally, the 6-foot-5, 274-pound defender will be out on Saturday against Maryland, and very likely will miss next Saturday's game against Rutgers.

Oregon State junior WR Isaiah Hodgins was limited to four receptions for 33 yards in Friday's 19-7 home loss against Washington.

Hodgins (6'4/209) was the leading receiver, but that will tell you a lot about how pathetic the Oregon State offense was in this one. The Beavers were outgained 420 to 119 in total yards, and their only score of the game came courtesy of the defense on a pick-six. The yardage total was a season low, as he posted 36 yards with a touchdown in the game Oct. 19 at Cal. He and the Oregon State offense will look to bounce back against Arizona State next Saturday.

Washington redshirt junior QB Jacob Eason completed just 16-of-32 passes for 175 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 19-7 win at Oregon State.

The Beavers defense showed up to play, keeping Eason (6'6/227) and the Huskies offense mostly in check. One of his interceptions went back the other way for six, courtesy of sophomore DB Jaydon Grant. If not for the running of Salvon Ahmed, the Huskies might have been whistling a different tune. They were able to get the win despite Eason. He'll look to get back on track at Colorado in two weeks in Nov. 23 before wrapping up the regular season in the Apple Cup against Washington State Nov. 29.

Washington junior RB Salvon Ahmed rumbled 25 times for a career-high 174 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 19-7 road win against Oregon State.

The Huskies were abysmal on offense, as the passing game was able to generate very little, and they had uncharacteristic woes in the kicking game. If not for Ahmed and the suffocating defense, this game could easily have gone another way. Ahmed was able to record his fourth 100-yard game of the season, and he has racked up nine rushing scores across his nine outings. He'll look to stay hot next time on Nov. 23 in Colorado.

TCU senior RB Sewo Olonilua rushed 19 times for 79 yard and a touchdown in a 29-23 loss to Baylor on Saturday.

Olonilua (6'3/231) also caught four passes for 30 yards as the TCU offense struggled to move the ball, managing only 308 total yards on the day. The game flow was somewhat of a quagmire as neither team scored a touchdown in regulation but then scored 5 touchdowns combined over the three overtime periods. Olonilua accounted for over a third of TCU's offense by himself and has scored a touchdown in each of his last four games. The Horned Frogs travel to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech next Saturday.

Baylor Senior WR Denzel Mims caught six passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-23 victory over TCU on Saturday.

Mims (6'3/215) made an acrobatic lunging catch on a 20-yard touchdown on fourth down in the second-overtime to tie the game and send it to triple-overtime. Mims then caught the eventual game winning, four-yard touchdown catch in the third-overtime to put Baylor up 29-23. Mims started out the season hot with three 100-yard games and five touchdowns in his first four games. He has now caught 11 passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games, as Baylor plays Oklahoma next Saturday at home.

Colorado junior WR Laviska Shenault caught eight passes for 91 yards in Saturday's 16-13 win over Stanford.

Shenault (6'2/220) also took a reverse to convert a critical fourth down on the final drive of the game. As per usual, Shenault proved the most important fabric of Colorado's offense. His eight catches were by far the most of any Colorado player, as nobody else on the team caught more than three passes. Shenault will need another strong performance against Washington in two weeks to keep bowl game dreams alive.

LSU junior RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 103 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries while catching nine passes for 77 yards and an additional touchdown in Saturday's 46-41 win over Alabama.

Edwards-Helaire (5'8/209) did yeoman's work as both a rusher and receiver in Saturday's big win, scoring twice (once rushing, once receiving) just before halftime. His third touchdown of the contest -- LSU's final touchdown of the game -- came on an seven-yard run in the fourth quarter which essentially iced matters. This season, the junior back has been rock solid, having now rushed for 786 yards and 11 touchdowns across nine games played. Up next on the docket, a showdown with Ole Miss.

LSU redshirt senior QB Joe Burrow completed 31-of-39 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 64 yards on 14 attempts in Saturday's 46-41 win over Alabama.

Burrow (6'4/216) came out on fire, completing his first 13 passes while tossing touchdown passes to Ja'Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall in the first and second quarters, respectively. The offense held a 33-13 lead at the half and then did just enough after intermission to survive Alabama's second-half surge. This performance by Burrow and company was eerily similar to what they did against Texas, that is, worked out to a lead before answering every second-half punch by the opposition. In order to close out an undefeated regular season, LSU will need to take care of business against Ole Miss, Arkansas and Texas A&M these next three weekends.

USC senior WR Michael Pittman caught 13 passes for 146 yards in Saturday's 31-26 win over Arizona State.

Pittman (6'4/220) accepted a Senior Bowl invitation earlier in the week and put on a show on the heels of that acceptance, averaging 11.2 yards per grab with a long catch of 28 yards. The senior wideout owns a 71-938-8 receiving line in 10 games.

Texas senior WR Collin Johnson brought in seven passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-24 win over Kansas State.

Johnson (6'6/220) continues to look better and better since returning from injury a month or so ago. Though he's played just six games this year, Johnson's thrashing of Kansas State marked a season-high in yardage and just his second game with 100 yards. Oddly enough, the first 100-yard game was in Texas' previous game against TCU. Don't expect Johnson's return to form to slow down any time soon.

Texas senior WR Devin Duvernay brought in nine passes for 110 yards in Saturday's 27-24 win over Kansas State.

Duvernay led all receivers in this match with nine receptions. He could not quite squeeze out the lead for yardage, though, as he and teammate Collin Johnson both hit 110 yards on the day. Duvernay now has three consecutive games of at least eight catches and 100 yards.

Alabama junior RB Najee Harris rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while catching three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 46-41 loss to LSU.

Harris (6'2/230) might have been on the losing squad on Saturday, but his was a strong performance regardless. The junior ran with the slick blend of strength and agility which made him one of the most highly-coveted prep recruits in the country coming out of high school several years back. His 146 yards rushing on Saturday were a career high. Harris will try for a similar effort against Mississippi State next weekend.

Alabama junior WR Devonta Smith caught seven passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 46-41 loss to LSU.

Smith (6'1/175) roared for a 64-yard touchdown grab in the first half to help keep Alabama in the contest after LSU came out hot. His second score of the game, from 85 yards out late in the fourth quarter, drew Alabama to within one score, but they would not get the ball back after that drive. While Smith is generally viewed as the team's WR3 behind Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, he currently leads the Tide in receiving yardage with 942 yards in nine games.

Oklahoma senior QB Jalen Hurts completed 18-of-26 passes for 273 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 42-41 win against Iowa State.

Hurts (6'2/218) also rushed 22 times for 68 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the close shave. The offense was outstanding in the first half, rolling to a 35-14 halftime lead. However, the Sooners managed just seven points in the second half, including none in the fourth quarter, and Oklahoma had to hang on by the skin of their teeth. Hurts and the Sooners hit the road for Waco to battle the unbeaten Baylor Bears next Saturday night.

Boston College junior RB A.J. Dillon rushed 40 times for 165 yards in a 38-31 loss to Florida State this Saturday.

The 40 carries are a career-high for Dillon (6'0/250) who currently ranks second in the nation with 1451 rushing yards on the year. Dillon also chipped in with 3 catches for 25 yards as Boston College squandered a 14-3 first half lead. He has shouldered a heavy load for the Eagles, carrying the ball at least 34 times in three of his last four games. BC is on bye this week before traveling to South Bench to take on the Fighting Irish.

South Carolina senior WR Bryan Edwards posted nine receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 20-15 loss against Appalachian State.

Edwards (6'3/215) went to the injury tent in the first half due to a lower-body injury, but he worked out whatever kinks he had on the exercise bike and was able to finish the game. He nearly had the late-game heroics in the right corner of the red zone, shaking free for a potential winning catch. Unfortunately for Edwards and the Gamecocks, freshman QB Ryan Hilinski overthrew him and the team suffered an embarrassing five-point loss. Edwards, who is headed for the Reese's Senior Bowl, has managed to snag at least five receptions in each of his past nine outings, while racking up 23 catches for 229 yards and two scores over the past two. Next up is a trip to Texas A&M on Saturday.

Georgia junior QB Jake Fromm completed just 13-of-29 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 27-0 win over Missouri.

Fromm (6'2/220) had an uncharacteristically inaccurate day against the Tigers. In fairness, one of Fromm's top receivers, Lawrence Cager, went out with an injury. The junior passer was given few other options to look for, and freshman George Pickens took most of the targets in Cager's absence. Fromm will need a strong bounce-back performance to contend with Auburn next weekend.

Cincinnati senior TE Josiah Deguara brought in five passes for 45 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-3 win over UConn.

Deguara (6'3/240) has been a major scoring threat for Cincinnati all season. Now with seven touchdowns on the season, Deguara has almost half of QB Desmond Ridder's 17 passing touchdowns. Deguara's first score in this game was off the back of his excellent maneuverability and fortitude in catching passes over the middle.

Cincinnati junior RB Michael Warren II handled 14 carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-3 win over UConn.

Warren was the grinder for the Bearcats on Saturday. Whereas backup Gerrid Doaks was the explosive play threat, it was Warren's downhill, between-the-tackles running that allowed Cincinnati to convert in a number of short situations. Despite the middling efficiency compared to Doaks, do not expect Warren's carries to take a hit.

Cincinnati redshirt junior RB Gerrid Doaks takes 13 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 48-3 win over UConn.

Doaks (6'0/230) hasn't always been Cincinnati's leading rusher, but when given his chances on Saturday, he made the most of them. Doaks' 53-yard sprint marked his longest run of the season, topping his previous long of 27-yards. With Doaks proving himself capable of being a leading rusher even from the backup spot, Cincinnati's offense is poised for an AAC title run with this backfield. Cincinnati will travel to face USF next week.

Washington State redshirt senior WR Brandon Arconado caught 12 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in a 33-20 loss to Cal on Saturday.

Acronado (6'0/193) was the most consistent option in the passing game for QB Alex Gordon today as Wazzou struggled to score. Though he's been limited to only seven games, Arconado is a target-hog that has caught 51 passes for 721 yards and five touchdowns so far on the season. Arconado accounted for Wazzou's lone touchdown and is riding a streak of three-straight 100-yard games into this week's contest against Stanford.

Notre Dame senior WR Chase Claypool caught five passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 stomping of Duke.

Claypool (6'4"/227) is so big that he seems to dwarf the smaller cornerbacks trying to cover him. His touchdown came on a seven yard slant where he beat the CB clean off the line rendering him unable to recover and get around Claypool's body to stop the pass. This was Claypool's second game in a row going over 90 yards receiving and his fourth game doing so this year. Notre Dame will try to reach eight wins when they host Navy this coming Saturday.
