NFL Draft Prospects in the 2019 Camping World Bowl

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 Camping World Bowl.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Draft Prospects

Khalid Kareem, Edge

Kareem has been making an impact for the Fighting Irish for three seasons now. In his career, he has 107 total tackles, 26 tackles for loss and 13 sacks. For the 2019 season, Kareem has 45 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, Kareem is a solid size for an NFL pass rusher. Kareem didn’t produce as much as many would’ve hoped in 2019, but still has physical tools that will make him a coveted prospect.

Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round

Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool, WR

The Fighting Irish’s top target over the past few years has been Claypool. He has 143 receptions for 2,013 yards and 18 touchdowns in his Notre Dame Career. This year, Claypool has 59 receptions for 891 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He will be a bigger receiver in the NFL at 6-foot-4 and 229 pounds. Claypool is in a deep wide receiver class, but should be selected in the middle rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round

*Edge Julian Okwara is expected to be out for the bowl game with a shin injury. He is a projected second-fourth round pick.

Other notable draft-eligible players: QB Ian Book, WR Chris Finke, OT Robert Hainsey, OT Liam Eichenberg, OG/C Tommy Kraemer, OG/C Aaron Banks, OG/C Trevor Ruhland, Edge Daelin Hayes, Edge Jamir Jones, Edge Adentokunbo Ogundeji, LB Asmar Bilal, CB Donte Vaughn, CB Shaun Crawford, S Jalen Elliot, S Alohi Gilman

Josh Knipfel, OG/C

Knipfel started his college career at community college before enrolling at Iowa State. He has started at guard over the last three seasons for the Cyclones. His blocking has helped Iowa State reach a few bowl games in a row.

He is 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, so he’ll need to add some weight to his frame. Knipfel has a chance to be selected near the end of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Deshaunte Jones, WR

Jones has produced in all four seasons at Iowa State. In his career in Ames, Jones has 180 receptions for 2,007 yards and 12 touchdowns. In 2019, Jones has totaled 72 receptions for 832 yards and two touchdowns.

At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Jones is a little undersized for an NFL receiver and may have to be moved to the slot. Jones is in a deep wide receiver class, so he could go undrafted.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Other notable draft-eligible players:  WR La’Michael Pettway, TE Chase Allen, TE Charlie Kolar, OT Bryce Meeker, OG/C Julian Good-Jones, OG/C Collin Newell, DT Ray Lima, Edge Matt Leo, CB JaQuan Bailey
