NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 SERVPRO First Responder Bowl

NFL Draft Prospects in the 2021 SERVPRO First Responder 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 SERVPRO First Responder Bowl.

Louisville Cardinals Draft Prospects

Kendrick Duncan Jr., S

After starting his career at Georgia Southern, Duncan transferred to Louisville for the 2021 season. In his career at both schools, he has registered 214 total tackles, seven interceptions and 18 passes defended. This season for Louisville, Duncan has 76 total tackles, one interception and four passes defended.

He is a bigger safety at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds. Duncan may be a candidate to move to linebacker at the next level, as the league is going smaller and for more speed. He could return to Louisville for another season of eligibility to improve his stock. If he does enter the draft, he will be a late round pick or undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth Round Pick-Undrafted Free Agent

Chandler Jones, CB

Jones is one of the players who has played for four seasons at Louisville and has continually improved. He has 128 total tackles, one interception and 23 passes defended in his career. This season, Jones has registered 38 total tackles and seven passes defended.

At 5-foot-10 and 186 pounds, Jones isn’t the biggest corner, but he should still be able to hold up on the outside at the NFL level. While he has played four seasons, he still has another season of eligibility left and could return to school. That is the likely course of action, as Jones is a projected undrafted free agent in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent

Air Force Falcons Draft Prospects

Vince Sanford, LB

Sanford has been a one-year wonder for Air Force, as he didn’t get much playing time early in his career. He had just three total tackles in his first three years on campus. This season, he has 56 total tackles, 17 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks.

He is an undersized linebacker at 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds. Sanford’s production, especially getting after the quarterback, deserves some recognition. It is unlikely he would receive a waiver from the Air Force to pursue a career in the NFL, but if he did, he could be an undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent

Jordan Jackson, DL

Jackson has been a very productive player for Air Force, even after not playing in 2020. He has 126 total tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss and 12 sacks in his career. The 2021 season has been his best yet with 35 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, he fits right in on an NFL defensive line. His pass-rushing production from the interior is something NFL teams will want to take a look at. Like Sanford, it is unlikely Jackson gets a waiver from the Air Force to pursue a football career. If he does, he will also likely be an undrafted free agent.

Projected Draft Range: Undrafted Free Agent
