NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 Rose 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 Rose Bowl.

Alabama Crimson Tide Draft Prospects

Patrick Surtain Jr., CB

Going into the season, Surtain was one of the most coveted corners in college football. He has lived up to the hype over his career with 110 total tackles, four interceptions and 22 passes defended. This season Surtain has 31 total tackles, one interception and seven passes defended.

Surtain has good size and length for an NFL corner at 6-foot-2 and 202 pounds. He hasn’t been targeted very often over his college career, which speaks to how good of a corner he can be. Surtain is a projected top 15 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Top 15 pick

Devonta Smith, WR

Smith has been a very productive receiver in his time in Tuscaloosa. Over his career, he has 216 receptions for 3,620 yards and 40 touchdowns. He has had a monster 2020 season that has led to him being a Heisman finalist with 98 receptions for 1,511 yards and 17 touchdowns.

At 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, Smith may need to add some play strength to be successful in the NFL. He has displayed a nose for the endzone and has great route-running skills. Smith is a projected first round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: First Round Pick

Other Draft Prospects

WR Jaylen Waddle (1st), OT Alex Leatherwood (1st-2nd), DL Christian Barmore (1st-2nd), LB Dylan Moses (1st-3rd), RB Najee Harris (1st-3rd), QB Mac Jones (1st-3rd), OG Deonte Brown (2nd-4th), CB Josh Jobe (3rd-5th), DL Phidarian Mathis (4th-6th), OG/C Landon Dickerson (4th-6th), DL LaBryan Ray (5th-7th), TE Miller Forristall (UFA)

Owusu-Koramoah has been a star for the Fighting Irish the past two seasons. He has 136 total tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks in his career. For this season, Owusu-Koramoah has 56 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-1 and 215 pounds, Owusu-Koramoah needs to add weight before playing in the NFL. He has made plenty of impact plays over the last two seasons, which will draw the eye of NFL teams. If he decides to leave college, he is a projected first or second round pick.

Projected Draft Range: First Round Pick-Second Round Pick

Liam Eichenberg, OT

Eichenberg didn’t play in his first season on campus, but played in five games his second year. Since that point he has been starting at left tackle for the Fighting Irish. His play has helped Notre Dame have a good rushing attack and the team has made two College Football Playoffs during his time on the team.

He has good size, at 6-foot-6 and 302 pounds, which will help him in the NFL. Eichenberg has blocked well without allowing too many quarterback pressures, which makes him valuable. He is a projected first or second round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: First Round Pick-Second Round Pick

Other Draft prospects

OG/C Tommy Kraemer (3rd-5th), DE Adetokunbo Ogundeji (3rd-5th), OT Robert Hainsey (4th-6th), QB Ian Book (5th-7th), EDGE Daelin Hayes (5th-7th), OG/C Aaron Banks (5th-7th), WR Javon McKinley (6th-UFA), WR Ben Skowronek (5th-7th), DL Kurt Hinish (6th-UFA), CB Nick McCloud (6th-UFA), S Shaun Crawford (6th-UFA)
