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 2020 Rose Bowl.
Oregon Ducks Draft Prospects
Justin Herbert, QB
Herbert would’ve been an early first-round pick had he left school last season and has maintained a lot of his draft value this season. In his career, he has 10,403 passing yards, 95 touchdowns and 22 interceptions on 63.9 percent completion. This season, Herbert has thrown for 3,333 yards, 32 touchdowns and five interceptions on 66.7 percent completion.
At 6-foot-6 and 237 pounds, Herbert has ideal size for an NFL quarterback. He is in contention to be the second quarterback selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Top 15 Pick
Shane Lemieux, OG/C
Oregon has a very good and experienced offensive line with Lemieux being one of their best players. Lemieux redshirted his first year, but has started at left guard ever since. He has been an All-Pac-12 offensive lineman and his talent should translate to the pro level well.
He stands 6-foot-4 and 316 pounds, which is solid for an NFL lineman. Lemieux won’t be selected in the first round, but shouldn’t have to wait too many rounds to hear his name called.
Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round
Other notable draft-eligible players: WR Juwan Johnson, WR Jaylon Redd, TE Jacob Breeland, OT Calvin Throckmorton, OT Brady Aiello, OG/C Dallas Warmack, OG/C Jake Hanson, DT Austin Faoliu, Edge Gus Cumberlander, LB Troy Dye, LB La’Mar Winston, LB Isaac Slade Matautia, CB Deommodore Lenoire, CB Thomas Graham, S Nick Pickett
Wisconsin Badgers Draft Prospects
Tyler Biadasz, OG/C
Biadasz is the most experienced player on a good Wisconsin offensive line. He redshirted in 2016, but has been one of the best centers in college football since that point. He has been an All-Big Ten player all three years he has been on the field.
He will look the part of an NFL center at 6-foot-3 and 322 pounds. Biadasz could be the first interior offensive lineman selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: First round-second round
Jonathan Taylor, RB
Taylor has been one of the most productive running backs in college football history. In his college career, he has 6,080 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns. This season alone, Taylor has 1,909 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns.
At 5-foot-11 and 219 pounds, Taylor has the size and speed to be a productive running back at the next level. He has even added good pass-catching ability out of the backfield to his arsenal this season. Taylor will be one of the first running backs selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Second round-third round
Other notable draft-eligible players: RB Bradrick Shaw, RB Garrett Groshek, WR Kendric Pryor, WR Danny Davis, OT Cole Van Lanen, DT Isaiah Loudermilk, Edge Zack Baun, LB Chris Orr, S Eric Burrell
