Will Connor Williams become a Raven? Will Malik Jefferson become a Charger?
With the NFL Draft upcoming, Texas will have no shortage of professional prospects. Williams, an offensive lineman, and Jefferson, a linebacker, both entered the draft after leaving a year of eligibility on the table. As did punter Michael Dickson, running back Chris Warren III and defensive backs DeShon Elliott and Holton Hill. Defensive tackle Poona Ford and receiver Armanti Foreman are among the UT seniors who could catch the attention of NFL scouts.
The NFL Draft doesn’t kick off until April 26. That leaves plenty of time for all-star games, pro days and mock drafts. So, what are the NFL insiders seeing in their crystal balls when it comes to the Longhorns?
This week, we’re pulling from the first-round predictions made by Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling, the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Gentry Estes, 247Sports’ Josh Edwards, CBS Sports’ R.J. White and ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. Easterling attempted to predict all seven rounds, Edwards covered three rounds and White did a two-round draft.
