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 Vrbo Citrus Bowl.
Auburn Tigers Draft Prospects
Seth Williams, WR
Seth Williams has been Auburn’s top receiver for the last few seasons. Over his time at Auburn, he has 127 receptions for 2,052 yards and 17 touchdowns. For the 2020 season, Williams has totaled 42 receptions for 688 yards and four touchdowns.
At 6-foot-3 and 211 pounds, Williams is a big target with a large catch radius. He has produced at Auburn without getting the most consistent quarterback play, which makes him even more impressive. Williams is a projected day two pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Third Round Pick
Anthony Schwartz, WR
Auburn has another receiver who has been solid over the last few seasons in Anthony Schwartz. He has 117 receptions for 1,433 yards and six touchdowns in his career. This season, Schwartz has hauled in 54 passes for 636 yards and three touchdowns.
Schwartz is 6-foot and 179 pounds, which means he has good height, but he’ll need to add strength. The appeal that teams will find in Schwartz is his speed, as he may be the fastest player in the entire draft class. Currently, he is a projected mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Third Round Pick-Fifth Round Pick
Other Draft Prospects
Northwestern Wildcats Draft Prospects
Paddy Fisher, LB
It would be hard to find a player that has done more for his program over the last four years than Paddy Fisher. Over his career, he has 389 total tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. In the 2020 season, Fisher has 74 total tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss.
Fisher has great size for a linebacker at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds. NFL teams will love his ability to play against the run, but he may not be a three-down linebacker. Fisher currently projects as a mid-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Fourth Round Pick-Sixth Round Pick
Blake Gallagher, LB
Fisher has had a partner in crime over the last four years at linebacker in Blake Gallagher. Gallagher has 322 total tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and two sacks in his career. In 2020, Gallagher has totaled 74 total tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss and two sacks.
