Levao has been a great offensive lineman for Hawaii for the last three seasons. He started his career at the JUCO level with City College of San Francisco before joining the Rainbow Warriors for the 2018 season. After suffering an injury in 2019 and missing a lot of games, Levao returned for a solid senior campaign.

At 6-foot-6 and 350 pounds, Levao has tremendous size for an offensive tackle. To go along with his size, he has plenty of experience pass blocking over the last few years, as Hawaii likes to chuck the ball around the field. He has a chance to be selected late in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Rico Bussey Jr., WR

Bussey is an interesting prospect who started his career with North Texas before transferring to Hawaii. He has 160 catches for 2,227 yards and 22 touchdowns over his time at both schools. This season for the Rainbow Warriors, Bussey had 32 catches for 286 yards and one touchdown.

While he has some good height at 6-foot-2, Bussey will need to add some muscle to his frame, as he is only 190 pounds. His production over time at two schools should make him a candidate to be selected late in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects

DB Eugene Ford (UFA), OL Gene Pryor (UFA), WR Jared Smart (UFA), OC Taaga Tuulima (UFA)

Houston Cougars Draft Prospects

Marquez Stevenson, WR

Marquez Stevenson has been a key player for Houston for the last three seasons. In his career, he has 147 catches for 2,269 yards and 22 touchdowns. This season, in five games played, Stevenson has recorded 20 receptions for 307 yards and four touchdowns.

He stands at 6-foot and 190 pounds, which is solid height, but he’ll need to add play strength. Stevenson will want to play well in this bowl game to improve his stock, as the wide receiver class is stacked with talent. He is projected to be a late round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Fifth Round Pick-Seventh Round Pick

David Anenih, DE

Anenih is a versatile player who started his career as a linebacker before moving to defensive end. He has a lot of experience too, getting playing time ever since his freshman year. In his career, he has 20.5 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks. For the 2020 season, Anenih has 5.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, Anenih may have his position moved back to a linebacker at the next level. If he wishes to stay at defensive end, he might need to add a little bit of weight. He has a chance to be drafted, but will likely be an undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects

OG Keenan Murphy (UFA), RB Kyle Porter (UFA), OT Gio Pancotti (UFA) DE Peyton Turner (UFA), LB Grant Stuard (UFA), CB Damarion Willaims (UFA), S Deontay Anderson (UFA)
