UConn's Knappe, Williams on 2017 NFL draft watch list

Let's just file this under the "take this for what it's worth" department with the NFL draft still about 10 months away and it's hard to read too much into draft watch lists this far out but College Gridiron Showcase has been posting watch lists.

Offensive tackle Andreas Knappe and cornerback Jhavon Williams are the only UConn players to make the list as they are two of 412 draft eligible players on the list.

Knappe is going into his third season as UConn's starting right offensive tackle while Williams is coming off a junior season where he had 55 tackles and three interceptions.

Personally, if I were to list UConn's pro prospects in the senior class, I would start with safety Obi Melifonwu and receiver Noel Thomas but it is nice recognition for Knappe and Williams, who I would consider to be leading candidates to be among the UConn captains during the 2016 season.
