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 Outback Bowl.
Indiana Hoosiers Draft Prospects
Stevie Scott, RB
After getting to campus, Scott made an immediate impact for the Hoosiers. He has 2,444 rushing yards, 349 receiving yards and 30 total touchdowns in his career. For the 2020 season, Scott has 462 rushing yards, 52 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.
At 6-foot-2 and 231 pounds, Scott is a well-built running back for the NFL level. He has demonstrated that he can be a decent receiver too, which is valuable at his size. Scott is a projected mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Fourth Round Pick-Sixth Round Pick
Micah McFadden, LB
McFadden has been a solid player for Indiana, specifically over the last two seasons. He has 133 total tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in his career. This season, McFadden has totaled 53 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and five sacks.
He has solid size for a linebacker at 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds. McFadden will need to prove that he can cover to stay on the field for third downs, but he has proven to be able to rush the passer. He is currently projected to be a late round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Fifth Round Pick-Seventh Round Pick
Other Draft Prospects
Ole Miss Rebels Draft Prospects
Elijah Moore, WR
Moore has improved significantly every year that he has played for Ole Miss. The junior has 189 receptions for 2,441 yards and 16 touchdowns. He has raised his level of play this season with 86 receptions for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns.
He isn’t the biggest receiver at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, but that means he can be a solid slot receiver. His quickness and ability to get open jump off the tape for Moore. Moore is a projected day two pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick
Kenny Yeboah, TE
For the first four years of his college career, Yeboah played at Temple before playing this past season at Ole Miss. He has 74 receptions for 1,062 yards and 12 touchdowns in his career. This season, Yeboah has caught 27 passes for 524 yards and six touchdowns.
At 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, Yeboah won’t be the biggest tight end in the league, but he won’t look out of place either. His big season at Ole Miss has really moved him up draft boards. Yeboah is a projected mid round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick
