The bowl season gives fans and scouts alike a chance to analyze NFL Draft prospects against solid competition. The bowl season schedule allows all eyes to be on each game. Here are the NFL Draft prospects in the 2019 AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
Navy Midshipmen Draft Prospects
Malcolm Perry, QB
Perry has operated the triple-option attack for the Midshipmen for the last three seasons. In his career, he has 4, 146 rushing yards, 40 rushing touchdowns, 1,254 passing yards and nine passing touchdowns. This season, Perry has 1,804 rushing yards, 21 rushing touchdowns, 1,027 passing yards and six passing touchdowns.
At 5-foot-9 and 190 pounds, Perry will be short for the NFL. He could have a chance to play running back at the next level, much like former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds, but the more likely scenario for all of Navy’s roster is that they will go on to serve their country.
Projected Draft Range: Undrafted free agent
Nizaire Cromartie, LB
Cromartie has been a linebacker and a defensive end in his time at Navy. For his career, Cromartie has 102 total tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks. In 2019, Cromartie has 34 total tackles, nine tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.
He would have good size for an NFL linebacker at 6-foot-3 and 237 pounds. Cromartie will likely be an undrafted free agent and will rather serve his country.
Projected Draft Range: Undrafted free agent.
Kansas State Wildcats Draft Prospects
Scott Frantz, OT
After redshirting his first year on campus, Frantz has been a mainstay at left tackle for the Wildcats. With that, he will be one of the most experienced left tackles in the class. He was named Second Team All-Big 12 this season for his play.
At 6-foot-5 and 303 pounds, Frantz has average size for an NFL offensive lineman. His experience warrants some draft consideration and he could go in the later rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Fifth round-seventh round
Dalton Schoen, WR
Schoen has produced at a decent level over the last three seasons, despite not having the best quarterback play. He has 90 receptions for 1,557 yards and nine touchdown catches. This season, Schoen has 35 receptions for 567 yards and four touchdowns.
He has ok size for an NFL receiver at 6-foot-1 and 209 pounds. Because the draft class is so deep at wide receiver, Schoen may go undrafted.
Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent
Other notable draft-eligible players: RB James Gilbert, OG/C Tyler Mitchell, OG/C Josh Rivas, OG/C Adam Holtert, DT Trey Dishon, Edge Reggie Walker, Edge Wyatt Hubert, LB Da’Quan Patton, LB Elijah Sullivan, LB Justin Hughes, S Denzel Goolsby
