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 VRBO Citrus Bowl.
Alabama Crimson Tide Draft Prospects
Jerry Jeudy, WR
Jeudy has played three seasons at Alabama and has made a huge impact in the last two. For his career, he has 153 receptions for 2,538 yards and 25 touchdowns. This season, Jeudy has 71 receptions for 959 yards and nine touchdowns.
He stands 6-foot-1 and 192 pounds, which is ok for an NFL wide receiver. His quickness and agility make him a threat to score on any play. Jeudy should be the first wide receiver taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Top 15 pick
Jedrick Willis, OT
Willis has been blocking for Alabama since his freshman season. He was able to gain valuable experience as a freshman and then started every game at right tackle starting with his sophomore season. For his play this season, he was named a Second Team All-American.
At 6-foot-5 and 320 pounds, Willis has solid size for an NFL offensive tackle. He may have played right tackle, but for most of his starts he was protecting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside.
Projected Draft Range: First round-second round
*QB Tua Tagovailoa is out for this game with a broken hip. He is a projected first-round pick.
Other notable draft-eligible players: RB Najee Harris, Brian Robinson, WR Henry Ruggs, WR Devonta Smith, TE Miller Forristall, TE Major Tennison, OT Alex Leatherwood, OG/C Chris Owens, DT LaBryan Ray, DL Raekwon Davis, Edge Anfernee Jennings, Edge Terrell Lewis, Edge Christopher Allen, LB Dylan Moses, CB Trevon Diggs, S Jared Mayden, S Xavier McKinney
Michigan Wolverines Draft Prospects
Ben Bredeson, OG/C
Bredeson has been a key player for the Wolverines since he was a freshman. He started eight games as a freshman and has been a mainstay on the offensive line ever since. This season, he was named Second Team All-American for his play.
He is 6-foot-5 and 325 pounds, he has excellent size for a guard. Bredeson won’t be drafted in the first round, but could be drafted on day two of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Projected Draft Range: Second round-fourth round
Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR
Peoples-Jones entered Michigan as a highly-touted recruit, but never fully lived up to that hype. In his career, he has 102 receptions for 1,293 yards and 14 touchdowns. This season, Peoples-Jones has 33 receptions for 404 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games.
He is a decent size for an NFL receiver at 6-foot-2 and 208 pounds. Peoples-Jones didn’t have a lot of production, but has physical tools that may allow him to do better in the NFL than in college.
Projected Draft Range: Third round-fifth round
Other notable draft-eligible players: QB Shea Patterson, RB Tru Wilson, RB Chris Evans (suspended), WR Nico Collins, WR Tarik Black, TE Sean McKeon, TE Nick Eubanks, OG/C Jon Runyan, OG/C Cesar Ruiz, DT Donovan Jeter, Edge Josh Uche, Edge Mike Danna, LB Khaleke Hudson, LB Jordan Glasgow, LB John Ross, CB Lavert Hill, CB Ambry Thomas
