NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 Myrtle Beach Bowl

NFL Draft Prospects to Watch in the 2021 Myrtle Beach 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 2021 Myrtle Beach Bowl.

Tulsa Golden Hurricanes Draft Prospects

Tyler Smith, OG/C

He redshirted his first year on campus, but did get some starts late in the season. Smith jumped into the starting lineup at left tackle in 2020 and was named a Freshman All-American. He made the All-AAC First Team for the 2021 season.

At 6-foot-6 and 332 pounds, Smith has good size for an offensive line prospect. He has experience at tackle, but is probably going to move to the inside for the NFL. Smith is just a redshirt sophomore, so he will likely return to school. If he does declare for the draft, he is projected to be a late-round pick.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Chris Paul, OT

Paul redshirted in 2017. He started eight games at guard and played in all contests for 2018. After staying at guard and starting for all 12 games in 2019, he moved to tackle for the 2020 season. He was named Second-Team All-AAC in 2020 and in 2021.

He is 6-foot-4 and 324 pounds, which is also decent size for a lineman. Like Smith, Paul may be a candidate to play guard at the next level, especially given his experience at the position. He is currently projected to be a late-round pick or undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects: LB Justin Wright (UFA)

Old Dominion Monarchs Draft Prospects

Zack Kuntz, TE

Kuntz has been a highly productive tight end this season. He went to Penn State originally, but only registered three catches for 26 yards over three seasons there. At Old Dominion, he had 66 receptions for 747 yards and five touchdowns this season.

His size will get the attention of NFL scouts. He is 6-foot-8 and 245 pounds. Kuntz will need to add on weight to his frame, but his production and size make him worth a look. If he leaves now, he will likely be an undrafted free agent, so he will likely return to school.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent

Jordan Young, LB

Young has been productive since his freshman season for the Monarchs. In a great career, he has had 328 total tackles and 17 tackles for loss. For the 2021 season, Young has 83 total tackles and four tackles for loss.

He has a solid build for a linebacker at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. Young will likely need to show more pass coverage skills to get looked at more thoroughly. He may be invited to a camp, but is unlikely to get selected in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent
