Weaver has been a very productive pass rusher over the last three seasons for Boise State. He has 47.5 tackles for loss and 34 sacks in his career. The junior had 19.5 tackles for loss and 13.5 sacks in 13 games this season.

The edge rusher is 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds, which is good for the NFL. Weaver has the potential to be a frist round pick because of his measurables and production at Boise State.

Projected Draft Range: First round-third round

John Hightower, WR

Hightower has only been at Boise State for two seasons, but has improved over his time there. He has 79 receptions, 1,427 yards and 14 touchdowns in his two years in Boise. His production took a jump this season, as he had 48 receptions for 923 yards and eight touchdowns.

He is 6-foot-2, which is solid height for a pro receiver, but needs to add to his 173-pound frame. It is a deep wide receiver class, but Hightower has a chance to be drafted near the end.

Projected Draft Range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent

Other notable draft-eligible players: OG/C Eric Quevado, OG/C Garrett Carson, DT David Moa, S Kakoa Nawahine

Washington Huskies Prospects

Trey Adams, OT

Adams has battled injuries throughout his career, but has been a great player when healthy. The fifth-year senior has played since his first year on campus. He helped get Washington to the College Football Playoff earlier in his career and returned from a torn ACL to be one of the best offensive tackles in college football this season.

He has great size at 6-foot-8 and 314 pounds. If he can pass medical tests, he will likely go in the first round. If not, he could fall in the draft.

Projected Draft Range: First round-second round

Jacob Eason, QB

He started his career at Georgia, but transferred to Washington after Jake Fromm led the Bulldogs to the CFP. Eason has two years of starting experience under his belt with 5,380 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and 16 interceptions on 59.5 percent completion. This season, he has thrown for 2,922 yards, 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions on 63.8 percent completion.

Eason has the prototypical size for an NFL quarterback at 6-foot-6 and 227 pounds. He has made some miraculous throws this season, but has also had some awful games. NFL teams will likely fall in love with his arm talent, giving him a chance to be selected early in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: First round-third round

Other notable draft-eligible players: RB Sean McGrew, RB Salvon Ahmed, WR Aaron Fuller, WR Andre Baccella, WR Quinten Pounds, TE Hunter Bryant, OT Jared Hilbers, OG/C Henry Roberts, OG/C Nick Harris, DT Josiah Bronson, Edge Bennington Potoa’e, CB Myles Bryant
