NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 Quick Lane Bowl

NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 Quick Lane 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 Quick Lane Bowl.

Western Michigan Broncos Draft Prospects

Skyy Moore, WR

Moore has been productive ever since he stepped on the field for Western Michigan. In three seasons getting playing time, he has 166 receptions for 2,437 yards and 16 touchdowns. He has had a career year in 2021 with 90 catches for 1,247 yards and 10 touchdowns. His production has been off the charts for such a young player.

He will be a tad undersized at 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, but Moore has some solid physical tools to overcome that. Moore is just a redshirt sophomore, so he could return to try and improve his stock. If he does declare for the 2022 NFL Draft, he is likely going to be a late-round pick or undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Kaleb Eleby, QB

Eleby has improved over his three years on the field for the Broncos and done a good job of protecting the football. He has passed for 5,906 yards, 43 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 63.6 percent completion. This season he has 3,115 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and five touchdowns on 63.6 percent completion.

At 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, Eleby doesn’t have prototypical size for an NFL quarterback. He does have accuracy and protects the football well, which is not something to be taken for granted. Eleby is a sophomore with a few more years of eligibility left. If he enters the 2022 NFL Draft, he will likely be an undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Other Draft Prospects: Edge Ali Fayad (UFA)

Nevada Wolf Pack Draft Prospects

Carson Strong, QB

Strong has thrived in the air raid attack of the Wolf Pack over the last few seasons. He has passed for 9,379 yards, 74 touchdowns and 19 interceptions on 68.1 percent completion in his time with the Wolf Pack. This season, he has 4,186 yards, 36 touchdowns and eight interceptions on 70.2 percent completion.

He is 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, which is solid for a quarterback at the next level. Strong can’t go off-script like other quarterbacks in this class, but he can maneuver in the pocket, has a nice deep ball and is accurate. He may not play in this bowl game, but nothing has been announced yet. In the 2022 NFL Draft, Strong should be a first-round pick.

Projected Draft Range: First Round Pick-Second Round Pick

*Strong has since decided to forego the bowl game in order to prepare for the 2022 NFL Draft.

Romeo Doubs, WR

Doubs has put up good numbers in each of his four seasons at Nevada. He has 225 receptions for 3,322 yards and 26 touchdowns in his career. This season, he has been Strong’s best target with 80 receptions for 1,109 yards and 11 touchdowns.

He has solid size for the NFL at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds. While Doubs maybe specialized as a deep threat earlier in his career, he has worked on his game and added the ability to win underneath as well. His progression has helped him become a projected mid-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick

Other Draft Prospects: TE Cole Turner (3rd-5th), OG/C Aaron Frost (UFA), DL Dom Peterson (UFA)
