NFL Draft Prospects in the 2020 Montgomery Bowl

The bowl season gives fans and scouts alike a chance to analyze NFL Draft prospects against solid competition. Bowl scheduling allows all eyes to be on each game. Here are the NFL Draft prospects in the 2020 Montgomery Bowl.

Memphis Tigers Draft Prospects

T.J. Carter, CB

Carter has been the best defensive player for the Tigers over the last few seasons. In his four seasons at Memphis, Carter has 33 passes defended and six interceptions. This season, he has only been able to play in five games due to a hamstring injury, but has three passes defended.

If Carter is able to play in the bowl game, he will make a huge impact. He is 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, so he will need to get healthy and add weight to before suiting up in the pros. Carter is a projected day two or day three pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick

Brady White started his career at Arizona State before transferring to Memphis. He has been playing college football since 2015 with 10,665 passing yards, 89 touchdowns and 30 interceptions on 61.9 percent completion. For this year, White has 3,096 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and nine interceptions on 60.1 percent completion.

White has led a very high-powered Memphis offense over the last three seasons. His age may hold him back, but he is 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, which is right in line with what is expected at the NFL level. He could be picked late in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects

* Running back Kenny Gainwell has opted out of the 2020 season. He is a projected day two pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

*Wide receiver Damonte Coxie opted out for the 2020 season. Coxie is a projected mid to late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Florida Atlantic Owls Draft Prospects

Leighton McCarthy, Edge

It is rare that a player makes an impact over four seasons, but McCarthy did just that. He has 34 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks in his career. For the 2020 season, McCarthy had 11.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks in eight games.

He will need to add weight, as he is 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, which is a little light for an edge rusher. His production should allow him to be in the running to be a draft pick. If he isn’t drafted he will have a chance to make an NFL roster.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Desmond Noel, OG/C

Noel started his career off at Ohio before going to JUCO. He joined the Owls in 2019 and has started for them ever since. Before the 2020 season, Noel was named All-C-USA. He has started the 2020 season for the Owls and done well.

At 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds, Noel will need to add weight to play in the NFL. It is not likely that Noel will be drafted because of his measurables. He will likely get a chance to make an NFL roster even if he isn’t drafted in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent

* Offensive Tackle Calvin Ashley declared for the 2021 NFL Draft. He is a projected late round pick.

*Wide receiver John Mitchell is out for the year with a knee injury. If he decides to declare, he will have a chance to be drafted late or be an undrafted free agent.
