Desmond Ridder has quarterbacked Cincinnati to three great seasons in a row, which has led them to a New Year’s Six Bowl. Over his career, he has 6,699 passing yards, 55 touchdowns and 20 interceptions on 60.8 percent completion. He also has 1,842 rushing yards and 22 scores on the ground. For the 2020 season, Ridder has 2,090 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and six interceptions on 66.4 percent completion. To go with his passing stats, Ridder has 609 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.

He has good height for an NFL quarterback at 6-foot-4, but he’ll need to add weight to his frame to help avoid injury. His improved accuracy this season has him shooting up draft boards. Ridder is a projected day two or early day three pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick

Myjai Sanders, Edge

The last two years have been very successful for the Bearcats and for Sanders. He has 17 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in the last two seasons. For the 2020 season, Sanders has elevated his level of play with 10.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks.

Sanders has great size for an edge rusher at 6-foot-5 and 258 pounds. His production this season may lead him to leave school early and turn pro. He is a projected third to fifth round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick

Other Draft Prospects

S James Wiggins (5th-7th), RB Gerrid Doaks (6th-UFA), P James Smith (UFA), CB Coby Bryant

Georgia Bulldogs Draft Prospects

Tyson Campbell, CB

Tyson Campbell has been a shutdown corner for the Bulldogs over the last three seasons. In his Georgia career, he has nine passes defended and one interception. This season, Campbell has amassed four passes defended and one interception.

He will have great height and length at 6-foot-2, but needs to add more play strength to be a more complete corner. Campbell didn’t have quite the year he was expecting, but he is still a solid draft prospect. He is projected to be taken in the middle rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick

Richard LeCounte, S

LeCounte is the leader of the Georgia defense, as he has plenty of experience, specifically over the last four seasons. For his career, he has 176 total tackles, eight interceptions and 10 passes defended. He missed some time in 2020 due to a motorcycle accident, but still had 26 total tackles, three interceptions and four passes defended.

At 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, LeCounte isn’t the biggest safety entering the draft. His smarts and his ball skills that were displayed early in the 2020 season are something to note for NFL teams. LeCounte is a projected mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick
