A name you are probably going to hear a lot is Kyle Dugger because he was featured in an article partway through the 2019 season that blew up.
In that article you see that his arm length would have been second longest at the NFL Combine last year and his hands were bigger than anyone else’s at the event. Not only that, but he is listed at 6’1 and clocked in at 4.41 when scouts visited him on campus.
He also finished the season by winning the Cliff Harris Award for the best small school player in the nation.
I think he will have a role in the NFL quickly on special teams either as a returner, cover man or both and if his measurements and times hold up he could be a lot more. Shifting focus from him though, I think there is someone else who needs to be talked about.
Most likely to be the pick: Troy Pride
Pride is a quicker DB who still has enough size to line up inside or outside at the next level. While his 2019 season maybe wasn’t as good as his 2018 season, he still looks like a talented cornerback that can affect passes in the air.
In the admittedly little amount that I have watched him in draft prep, he looks like a guy who quickly comes up to make tackles and is well regarded for his speed. With Adoree Jackson scheduled to be a free agent after 2020, it makes sense for Jon Robinson to protect himself by adding a similar backup behind him.
Also, it would be nice to not have to resort to free agents in Week 14 again.
