NFL Draft Prospects in the 2020 Valero Alamo 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 Valero Alamo Bowl.

Texas Longhorns Draft Prospects

Sam Ehlinger, QB

Sam Ehlinger has had a great career at Texas, using both his arm and his legs to help bring them a lot of wins over the last few years.  He has passed for 11,276 yards, rushed for 1,908 yards and scored 126 total touchdowns. This season, Ehlinger has 2,406 passing yards, 382 rushing yards and has scored 33 touchdowns.

At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Ehlinger has solid size for an NFL quarterback. Ehlinger has amassed a lot of good stats in his career, but his arm talent has come into question. Because of this, he is a projected late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

He is 6-foot-2 and 222 pounds, which makes him a well-built running back for the NFL. The ankle injury may keep him out of this game, but if he plays he can make an impact. Ingram is a projected late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
