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 Myrtle Beach Bowl.

Novil made a huge impact for the Mean Green for the last three seasons. In his career, he has 135 total tackles, 28 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. This season, Novil played in eight games with 37 tackles, eight tackles for loss and 2.5 tackles for loss.

At 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds, Novil is a player that can play nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. It’s rare to find too many players who can come into the NFL with a build that is big enough for a nose tackle. He has a shot to be drafted late in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Tyreke Davis, LB

Davis has been a good player for the Mean Green for three seasons, but specifically elevated his game in 2019 and that continued in 2020. In 2019, Davis had 79 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. He has played five games in 2020 with 30 tackles, 2.5 sacks and one sack.

The NFL seemingly loves smaller linebackers and former safeties. At 5-foot-11 and 226 pounds, Davis fits the new mold of linebackers who are smaller, but he really found success against the run. If he can prove to cover well for a linebacker, he has a chance to make a roster.

Projected Draft Range: Seventh Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

While he received playing time his first two years on campus, Jean-Charles blossomed into a star his last two years at Appalachian State. In all, Jean-Charles has 93 tackles, two interceptions and 30 passes defended. For the 2020 season, Jean-Charles has registered 33 total tackles, one interception and 16 passes defended.

He is pretty light at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, so he will need to add some strength for the NFL level. Jean-Charles has proven to be an expert at getting pass break ups over his career. Currently, Jean-Charles is projected to be a mid to late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Fourth Round Pick-Seventh Round Pick

Shaun Jolly, CB

Jolly is another player in the Appalachian State secondary who helps make it great. He has been fantastic over his last two seasons and has 87 total tackles, five interceptions, 13 passes defended and two touchdowns in his career. This season, Jolly has 41 tackles and five passes defended.

At 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, Jolly is small for a corner, but he could operate well out of the slot. He has displayed solid ball skills over his career and his ability to take it back to the house will be coveted. Jolly is just a junior and may return to school to try and improve his draft stock. For the 2021 NFL Draft, he could be a late round pick.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent
