There might not be college football on your television every Saturday, but that doesn’t mean NFL scouts aren’t hitting the road to learn about the top players for the 2019 draft. They’re building profiles, researching backgrounds and character and talking to college coaches about top players.
We took that information to give it to you in an early look at the top 10 players in the 2019 draft class.
Scout’s Quote: “I liked [Shaq] Lawson and [Kevin Dodd] when they were coming out, but this one is on a different level. Strength, length, burst, instincts. He has it all.”
Clelin Ferrell would have been considered a first-round talent had he declared for the 2018 draft. Instead, he decided to return to Clemson, where he’ll round out a defensive line with unfair talent across the board. With Ferrell anchoring one edge, Austin Bryant on the other and Dexter Lawrence and Christian Wilkins on the interior, the Tigers line might be unstoppable.
Offensive lines will have to focus on someone, which could mean plenty of one-on-one looks for the No. 10 player in the class to wreak havoc.real nike nfl jerseys
Scout’s Quote: “He’s a big, mean, nasty SOB who probably projects best to the right side. But he’s better than any of the guys from the 2018 draft.”
Greg Little is a mean blocker with the finishing mentality to be great in the running game. The 6’6″, 325-pound junior will also be only 21 years old when the 2019 draft rolls around, which points to his potential.
Even if he’s viewed as a right tackle, there’s this: The San Francisco 49ers just used the No. 9 overall pick on right tackle Mike McGlinchey. The position has more value now than in years past because of the number of teams running talented pass-rushers off the right side of the line.cheap nfl jersey store
Ole Miss is in a state of flux, but Little and teammate A.J. Brown will give fans something to cheer for.
Scout’s Quote: “He’s Taylor Lewan all over again. People will overthink it and wonder if he’s a left or right [tackle], but just draft him and don’t worry about the left side for five years.”nike nfl jerseys sale
Trey Adams is a dominant presence on the offensive line for Chris Petersen’s powerhouse program at Washington. Scouts will flock to the Pacific Northwest to watch a left tackle with prototypical size (6’8″, 331 lbs), excellent length and the tape to show he can handle a pro-style passing set.nfl authentic jerseys china
When compared with the top tackles in the 2018 draft—McGlinchey and Kolton Miller—Adams shows better athleticism than McGlinchey to handle the left side and better technique and power than Miller. It will depend on team needs in the draft order, but Adams looks like a lock top-10 selection.
