John Keenoy, C

Keenoy has started since his freshman season. Last year he was All-MAC first team and this year he made the All-MAC second team for the second time in his career. As a sophomore, he was part of an offensive line that ranked the fourth best in college football by Pro Football Focus. That season he helped Western Michigan make the Cotton Bowl against Wisconsin.

At 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, Keenoy is below average size for an NFL center. His play has earned him a chance to hear his name called in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Projected draft range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Jamauri Bogan, RB

Bogan has been a part of Western Michigan’s rushing attack for four seasons now. He has 3,265 rushing yards and 42 touchdowns on the ground in his career. This season he has 702 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. He hasn’t proven to be a good receiver, which hurts his draft stock.

He is very undersized at 5-foot-7 and 188 pounds, which may limit his role in the NFL.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent

BYU Cougars Prospects

Ului Lapuaho, OT

Lapuaho has been injured for a lot of his college career, but has still shown enough to NFL scouts to be considered for the 2019 NFL Draft. He played a lot in his first two seasons, but was injured for the two seasons after that. He was able to play in all 12 games of 2018 to help improve his draft stock.

At 6-foot-7 and 330 pounds, Lapuaho has good size for a tackle in the NFL. His athleticism will intrigue NFL teams.

Projected draft range: Fourth round-sixth round

Corbin Kaufusi, DE

One of the most impressive, physical specimens in the 2019 NFL Draft is Corbin Kaufusi. He has 153 total tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 16 sacks, four passes defended and two forced fumbles in his career. In 2018 he has 55 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and one pass defended.

Kaufusi is one of the biggest players in the draft class at 6-foot-9 and 275 pounds, making him an intriguing project for NFL teams to work with. Adding strength will be the number one priority for him before playing in the NFL. Interestingly enough, Kaufusi has experience on offensive and defensive line and even played on Brigham Young’s basketball team.

Projected draft range: Fourth round-sixth round
