NFL Draft Prospects in the 2019 Rose 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 2019 Rose Bowl.

Washington Huskies Prospects

*Offensive Tackle Trey Adams has mentioned that he plans on returning to school for next year. If he changes his mind he is a first round pick.

Byron Murphy, CB

Murphy is a redshirt sophomore who has played just 19 games in his career, but has already proven himself. He has 72 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, one sack, six interceptions, one touchdown, 20 passes defended and two forced fumbles in his career. As a sophomore, he has 54 total tackles, four tackles for loss, four interceptions, one touchdown, 13 passes defended and one forced fumble.

He isn’t the biggest corner at 5-foot-11 and 182 pounds, but he has proven he can match up with bigger receivers. If he tests well, he can be a first-round pick.

Projected draft range: First round-second round

Taylor Rapp, S

Rapp was projected to be one of the best safeties in the 2019 class before the season and has maintained his value. At Washington, he has 168 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, six sacks, seven interceptions, one touchdown, six passes defended, three fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. This year, 58 total tackles, five tackles for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, four passes defended and three fumbles recovered.

At 6-foot and 200 pounds, Rapp has good size for a safety. He’ll likely be off the board before day two of the draft.

Projected draft range: Second round-third round

Myles Gaskin, RB

The four-year starter Gaskin has hit 1,000 rushing yards in each of his four collegiate seasons. He has 5,202 rushing yards and 55 touchdowns in his career. This season he has run for 1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has shown to be a decent pass-catcher out of the backfield as well with 62 receptions for 466 yards and five touchdowns in his career.

Gaskins needs to add some muscle to his 5-foot-10 and 193-pound frame. His production is unmatched, but he’ll need to prove at the combine that he has the necessary athleticism to be an early pick.

Projected draft range: Third round-fourth round

Other Washington Huskies prospects: DT Greg Gaines (Third round-fifth round), CB Jordan Miller (Third round-fifth round), S JoJo McIntosh (Third round-fifth round), LB Ben Burr-Kirven (Fourth round-sixth round), OT Kaleb McGary (Fourth round-sixth round), TE Drew Sample (Fifth round-seventh round), QB Jake Browning (Sixth round-undrafted free agent)

Ohio State Buckeyes Prospects

*Defensive end Nick Bosa has been preparing for the NFL Draft since suffering an injury in the TCU game. He is a projected top 15 pick.

Dwayne Haskins, QB

With the announcement that Justin Herbert will be returning to school, Haskins is now the best quarterback in the class, if he chooses to leave early. He has thrown for 5,145 yards, 51 touchdowns and nine interceptions on 70.2% completion in 2018. His play this season made him a Heisman finalist, as he set a lot of Big Ten records.

He stands 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, which is average for an NFL quarterback. Haskins only has one season as a starter, which will scare some people, but he played really well. If he leaves, he’ll be drafted early in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Projected draft range: Top 15 pick

Dre’Mont Jones, DT

 

While Bosa got most of the publicity, Jones has been a great defensive lineman in his own right. As a Buckeye, he has 111 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, one interception, two touchdowns, four passes defended, three fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. This season he has 40 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 8.5  sacks, one interception, two touchdowns, two passes defended, three fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

Jones is 6-foot-3 and 286 pounds, relying on athleticism more than strength. It is a loaded defensive tackle class this year, but Jones still has a chance to be selected in the first round.

Projected draft range: First round-second round

Parris Campbell, WR

Campbell has gotten progressively better during his time at Ohio State. For his career, he has 132 catches for 1,697 yards and 14 touchdowns. This season has been his best with 79 receptions for 992 yards and 11 touchdowns.

At 6-foot-1 and 208 pounds, Campbell has decent size for a receiver. His biggest asset is his speed and run after catch ability.

Projected draft range: Second round-third round

Other Ohio State Buckeyes prospects: RB Mike Weber (Second round-fourth round), G/C Michael Jordan (second round-fourth round), CB Kendall Sheffield (Second round-fourth round), S Jordan Fuller (third round-fifth round), OT/G Isaiah Prince (third round-fifth round), WR K.J. Hill (third round-fifth round), OG Malcolm Pridgeon (fourth round-sixth round), CB Damon Arnette (fourth round-sixth round)
