NFL Draft Prospects in the 2019 Valero Alamo 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 Valero Alamo Bowl.

Utah Utes Draft Prospects

Leki Fotu, DT

Fotu is a big defensive tackle who has been crucial for Utah over the last three seasons. For his career, he has 80 total tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. This season, Fotu has 23 total tackles, six tackles for loss and no sacks.

He is massive for a defensive tackle at 6-foot-5 and 335 pounds. His ability to take up multiple blockers will make him coveted, but he doesn’t rush the passer well. Fotu should be a selected on day two of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round

Bradlee Anae, Edge

Anae has been a player who has improved a lot through his time as a Ute. In his four seasons, he has 125 total tackles, 39.5 tackles for loss and 29 sacks. This year, Anae has totaled 35 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks.

At 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds, he has good size for an edge rusher, but may lack some length. His production should be good enough to get him drafted on day two or three.

Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round

Other notable draft-eligible players: QB Tyler Huntley, RB Zack Moss, WR Britain Covey, OT Darrin Paulo, LB Francis Bernard, LB Mique Juarez, CB Tareke Lewis, CB Jaylon Johnson, S Julian Blackmon

Texas Longhorn Draft Prospects

Zach Shackelford, OG/C

Shackelford has a lot of experience over his time at Texas. He started a few games as a freshman and then started eight games as a sophomore. He was a first-team Al-Big 12 as a junior and has started all 12 games this season.

He is 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds, making him decent size for an NFL interior lineman. His play should mean he can be selected in the middle of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round

Collin Johnson, WR

Johnson has been a big play-maker for Texas for four years, but has been limited with a hamstring injury this season. For his career, he has 185 receptions for 2,562 yards and 14 touchdowns. This season, Johnson has 35 receptions for 497 yards and two touchdowns.

At 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, Johnson has elite size for a wide receiver. His 40-yard dash time and agility drills will be very important to show he can create some separation in the NFL. He is projected to be selected late on day two or on day three of the NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round

Other notable draft-eligible players: QB Sam Ehlinger, WR Devin Duvernay, WR John Burt, TE Cade Brewer, OT Samuel Cosmi, OG/C Parker Braun, OG/C Derek Kerstetter, DT Malcolm Roach, DT Gerald Wilbon, LB Jeffrey McCulloch, S Brandon Jones, S Chris Brown
