NFL Draft Prospects in the 2018 R+L Carriers New Orleans 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 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders Prospects

Brent Stockstill, QB

Stockstill is the coach’s son, who has shown skill and good football IQ. He has started from his freshman season, making him one of the most experienced quarterbacks in the draft class. He has 12,142 passing yards, 105 touchdowns and 33 interceptions on 65.4% completion. The senior has played very efficiently this season with 3,203 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions on 70.4% completion.

He is undersized at 6-foot and 215 pounds. HIs accuracy and intelligence could help him get drafted later in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Projected draft range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Darius Harris, LB

Harris has also been putting up numbers since his freshman season at Middle Tennessee. As a Blue Raider, he has 274 total tackles, 28 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, one interception, 13 passes defended, three fumble recoveries, five forced fumbles and a touchdown. As a senior, Harris has 92 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss and five sacks.

He isn’t the biggest linebacker at 6-foot-2 and 238 pounds, but he won’t look out of place in the NFL. With a good showing at the bowl game and in the offseason, Harris could be a late round pick.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent

Appalachian State Mountaineers Prospects

Anthony Flory, LB

Flory has been a leader on a good Appalachian State defense this season. At Appalachian State he has 199 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception, seven passes defended, two fumble recoveries and one fumble forced. This season he has elevated his game with 90 total tackles, five tackles for loss, three passes defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovered.

He is 6-foot-1 and 232 pounds, which is decently small for an NFL linebacker. Flory will be hoping to prove he is good enough for the NFL by playing well in this bowl game.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent

Tae Hayes, CB

The Mountaineers have a lockdown corner in Tae Hayes. As a Mountaineer, Hayes has 134 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, 1,5 sacks, eight interceptions, 23 passes defended, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. This season he has 43 total tackles, three tackles for loss, three interceptions and six passes defended.

He is 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, needing to add muscle to his frame to avoid being pushed off the line of scrimmage by bigger wide receivers.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent
