Jaylon Haynes is a senior who really started making an impact in 2019. In his four seasons at UTSA, Haynes has 80 total tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks. This season, Haynes has 19 total tackles, six tackles for loss and four sacks.

At 6-foot-2 and 290 pounds, Haynes has the size to play defensive tackle in a 4-3 defense at the NFL level. His 2019 season put him on the radar and with his size, he has a chance to be drafted in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Hunter Duplessis, K

Duplessis is a senior who has had the kicking job at UTSA for the last two seasons. He has made 62/63 extra points and 25/29 field goals in his career In 2020, Duplessis has made 37/38 extra points and 16/18 field goals.

His longest field goal is 50 yards, which is solid for a college kicker. His accuracy is his main calling card though, with just one missed extra point and one missed field goal from within 40 yards in his career. Kickers don’t usually get drafted, but Duplessis will likely get some camp invites with a shot to make a roster next season.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects

TE Leroy Watson (UFA), S Savion Harris (UFA)

Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Draft Prospects

Elijah Mitchell, RB

Mitchell is one half of a two-headed monster in the Louisiana backfield. In his career, he has 3,140 rushing yards, 552 receiving yards and 45 total touchdowns. For the 2020 season, Mitchell has 751 rushing yards, 108 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns.

He is a well-built running back at 5-foot-11 and 218 pounds. While most four-year college running backs have wear and tear on their bodies, Mitchell has split carries, which means he is relatively fresh. Mitchell could be a late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Trey Ragas, RB

The other half of the great backfield duo is Trey Ragas. He has 3,476 rushing yards, 427 receiving yards and 42 touchdowns in his career. During this season, Ragas has 662 rushing yards, 106 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns for the Ragin’ Cajuns.

Ragas also has great size for an NFL running back at 5-foot-10 and 230 pounds. Teams looking for a power back who can also catch the back out of the backfield may consider selecting Ragas. He, like Mitchell, could be drafted late in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects

QB Levi Lewis (UFA), LB Ferrod Gardner (UFA)
