This is amazing 3 of the top 6 haven't made the CFP yet:
I like how all these most drafted illustrations go back to 2010 to count those Creyer era elite players.
Mock draft w/ 5 UF players taken: Seven-Round 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Buccaneers help Tom Brady with O-linemen and RB, Patriots take Round 3 QB Round 1, Pick 17 - CB CJ Henderson --> Dallas Cowboys Round 3, Pick 1 (65) - DE Jabari Zuniga --> Cincinnati Bengals Round 3, Pick 12 (76) - DE Jonathan Greenard --> Tampa Bay Buccaneers Round 3, Pick 39 (103) - WR Van Jefferson --> Philadelphia Eagles Round 5, Pick 19 (165) - RB Lamical Perine --> Jacksonville Jaguars
I'd be curious to hear from some of our resident experts, but I'd expect Freddie Swain to be drafted. What am I missing?
I just don't know if he was productive enough. There are WR's like him all over CFB. He did have an excellent combine (his 40 time was legit and his 225 reps). He could sneak in the 7th round, and so could Cleveland. But again, there are a lot of similar WR's around CFB. I'm curious if Reese makes a roster. He's slow, but he's also a 'football player' - he's always around the ball and you don't make that many tackles in the SEC being a scrub.
This is possibly one of the deepest WR drafts in history. That is why Swain might not be drafted. There are legit first round guys who might not get picked until the early third round.
Good info. My thought was based on him appearing to have good speed and elusiveness and a proven ability to play STs (and from what little I have heard a good attitude). Can his lack of production can be explained away by depth and style of offense? Looking back on his career, I suspect if the current redshirt rules were in place back then, he would have played a little less his freshman year - and we'd all be looking forward to his redshirt senior year.
Guys that would have gone in the 1st round the last few years, might not even be given a look until the 4th, this draft is deep at so many different positions. On raw talent alone, might be one of the deepest talent drafts across the board in the Super Bowl era.
Well, his productivity was a result of our offense - none of our WR's were overly productive (stats wise), especially compared to some of these teams that put up 300+ passing yards/game. Also, he was essentially our #5 WR/TE target (Pitts, Jefferson, Grimes, Cleveland....then Swain?). And yes, he should have redshirted but Butters is an terrible roster manager. His ability to play ST's will likely get him an NFL roster spot for a year or two - but I'm not sure he gets drafted.
That's too bad. I confess to being a big FS fan.
I see him as a valuable UDFA for some team in the special teams, sure hand will be key. Just depends if he gets in the right situation if it will amount to more than that.
Interesting. I think Henderson is a second round guy talent wise. And I think Zúñiga and Greenard are 2nd round talent Guys as well
Henderson is apparently killing the team interviews.
He's also the consensus #2 CB in the draft, he'll be in the 1st round - it's just a matter of how high. I'm w/ J though, I didn't think he was going that high. He didn't have a single INT last season and he had some poor tackling performances.
He's been the exact opposite of Polite. If a corner can cover, nfl teams don't care about his tackling ability.
Not very athletic and Mullinzesque production numbers are hindering him.
