NFL Draft Prospects to Watch in the 2017 Cotton Bowl

The New Year’s Six Bowl games all have a lot of NFL Draft Prospects, but the 2016 Cotton Bowl is the most interesting. Western Michigan hasn’t always had the most prospects, but P.J. Fleck has recruited and developed NFL level talent to Kalamazoo. Wisconsin has pro players come through their system more often.

Western Michigan Broncos

Corey Davis, WR

Projected Draft Range: First round-second round

Davis is a unique receiver prospect. He has great size at six feet three inches tall and 213 pounds. A lot of the things he does well are traits commonly founded in smaller prospects. He has great quickness and an ability to go over the middle. Davis makes plays once the ball gets in his hands. The team that takes him will get a well-balanced receiver.

Taylor Moton, OT

Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round

Moton has been a big reason for the Broncos’ success, but not a lot of people give him the credit he deserves. He is a good pass and run blocker for Western Michigan. At six feet five inches tall and 325 pounds Moton has the necessary size to play in the NFL. His athletic ability and mobility will be questioned by NFL scouts.

Zach Terrell, QB

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrated free agent

Terrell has had a great career for Western Michigan. This season has been particularly impressive with a 71% completion percentage. He has thrown for 3,376 yards and 32 touchdowns. What has also been extraordinary, is that he has only thrown three interceptions on the season. He doesn’t have great size or arm strength, but makes up for it with his accuracy and smarts.

Wisconsin Badgers

Ryan Ramczyk, OT

Projected Draft Range: First round-third round

Ramczyk is a tough, physical blocker for the Badgers. His specialty is run blocking, but he is also good at pass blocking. He has good size at six feet six inches and 313 pounds. Ramczyk can play his way into the first round with a good performance in the bowl game, as it is a weak tackle class.

Corey Clement, RB

Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round

After an injury-plagued season in 2015, Clement has stormed back in 2016. Clement has 1,304 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. He is known for his speed, but has started to add a little power running to his game. At five feet eleven inches and 227 pounds, Clement has the build to be an all-around back.

Vince Biegel, OLB

Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round

Biegel is a good edge rusher for Wisconsin. He is six feet four inches tall and 245 pounds, which is decent size for a pass rusher. Biegel missed two of the biggest games this season against Ohio State and Michigan. He hasn’t produced many sacks, with only three on the season. While he may have the look of an edge rusher, he actually is a great run defender.
