Quez Watkins, WR

Watkins has been at Southern Miss for three seasons and improved every year on campus. In his career, Watkins has 150 receptions for 2,250 yards and 16 touchdowns. This season, Watkins has 55 receptions for 1,024 yards and five touchdowns.

He has decent size at 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds. Watkins is a productive receiver who may not get drafted, but could get a chance to make an NFL roster if he leaves school with one year of eligibility left on the table.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Ty Pollard, OG/C

After redshirting as a freshman, Pollard has started ever since for the Golden Eagles. He made the C-USA All-Freshman Team in 2016 and has been getting valuable experience for Southern Miss ever since.

He is 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds, which is good size for an NFL interior lineman. Pollard could be drafted near the end of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Other notable draft-eligible players: WR Jordan Mitchell, S Ky-El Hemby

Tulane Green Wave Draft Prospects

Thakarius Keyes, CB

Keyes got limited playing time in his first two seasons on campus, but has been a star corner for the Green Wave over the last two seasons. He has 95 total tackles, two interceptions and 15 passes defended in his career. This season, he has 47 total tackles, one interception and four passes defended.

He is 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, which is good size for an NFL corner. Someone will take a chance on Keyes because he is lengthy and has good tape.

Projected Draft Range: Fourth round-sixth round

Jalen McCleskey, WR

McCleskey started his career at Oklahoma State before transferring to Tulane because his father was on the coaching staff. In his career, he has 202 receptions for 2,359 yards and 20 touchdowns. This year, McCleskey has 35 receptions for 494 yards and three touchdowns.

At 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, McCleskey is small for an NFL receiver. Because of the deep wide receiver class, McCleskey may not be drafted, but will get some opportunities with a team.

Projected Draft Range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Other notable draft-eligible players:  QB Justin McMillan, RB Darius Bradwell, WR Darnell Mooney, OG/C Keyshawn Mcleod, Edge Patrick Johnson, LB Malik Lawal, S Will Harper
