NFLDraftScout ranks Howard the 15th best offensive tackle prospect. The 6-foot-6, 311-pounder impresses with his size and athleticism. Howard played quarterback in high school and arrived at Alabama State as a tight end.
4. Jordan Brown, South Dakota St. CB
Projected: 5th Round
Brown is the 20th best cornerback prospect, per NFLDraftScout. “It’s a huge blessing," Brown told HERO Sports. "Not a lot of people get to this point. I sit back and realize that everything is right there in front of you. Honestly, everything is right in your hands. No one can run fast for you. No one can interview well for you. It’s all in your hands and that’s a good feeling to know it’s all on your back and you have to go out there and give it your all every day.”
3. Oli Udoh, Elon OL
Projected: 5th Round
NFLDraftScout ranks Udoh the 14th best offensive tackle prospect. At 6-foot-5, 336 pounds, Udoh really emerged onto the scene during his senior year at Elon, where he earned three different All-American honors.
2. Khalen Saunders, Western Illinois DT
Projected: 3rd-4th Round
The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder is ranked the 11th best defensive tackle prospect by NFLDraftScout. Saunders was described as dominant during the week of the Senior Bowl and has seen his draft stock soar in the last year.
