NFL Draft Prospects in the 2018 Raycom Media Camellia Bowl

The bowl season gives fans and scouts alike a chance to analyze NFL Draft prospects against solid competition. The bowl season schedule allows all eyes to be on each game. Here are the NFL Draft prospects in the 2018 Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Georgia Southern Eagles Prospects

Wesley Fields, RB

Fields has been productive in the pistol/triple option at Georgia Southern. He has 2,944 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns on the ground in his four seasons at Georgia Southern. This season he has amassed 959 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. Fields has proven to be a good pass catcher as well with 590 receiving yards and six touchdowns.

He is six-foot and 205 pounds which is average size for an NFL running back. He has the chance to be selected, but NFL teams will have to see if the skillset acquired from running in the specific offense in college could translate to the pros.

Projected draft range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Shaq Vann, RB

Vann is unique in that his best season so far was when he was a freshman. In his career, he has 1,887 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. This season he has 590 rushing yards and five touchdowns. He has 331 receiving yards and a touchdown in his time at Eastern Michigan as well.

He is 5-foot-10 and 215 pounds, which is good enough to be successful in the NFL. There are some injury concerns with Vann and some questions of how much he can produce.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent

Jimmy Leatiota, OT

At Eastern Michigan, Leatiota has gained a lot of experience at guard. He has been starting at right guard since the 2016 season. This season he was named to the All-MAC third team, while last season he made the second team.

Leatiota is 6-foot-3 and 303 pounds and will need to add some muscle to his frame. His experience may allow him to be drafted in the later rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent
