UConn's Jamar Summers top AAC draft prospect per DraftInsider.net
|DraftInsider.net considers UConn junior cornerback Jamar Summers |
as top NFL draft prospect in the American Athletic Conference
UConn junior cornerback Jamar Summers is the top-ranked player in the conference among the 28 players given draftable grades and UConn has the most players listed.
Summers is rated as a third-round pick, tight end Alec Bloom (4th round), linebacker Junior Joseph (4th/5th round), safety Obi Melifonwu (5th round), defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi (5th/6th round) and tight end Tommy Myers (7th round) are also on the list as are offensive linemen Andreas Knappe and Richard Levy, running back Arkeel Newsome, WR Noel Thomas, DL Mikal Myers and QB Bryant Shirreffs and CB Jhavon Williams are among those given grades as free agents. Jazzmar Clax, who isn't even with the program any longer, also is listed as a free agent.
I'm kind of surprised not to see Ryan Crozier, Tommy Hopkins or Luke Carrezola (among others) on the list. Obviously it is very early in the process so it isn't much more than something interesting to talk about. It does show the potential for members of the talented junior class to consider leaving for the NFL at the end of the season since six of the seven players to receive draftable grades are juniors. Also, if my math is correct, UConn has the most players on the list with 14 (13 if you take Clax off) followed by Cincinnati (11, including the most draftable prospects with seven), East Carolina (8), Temple (7), UCF (7). I did notice that one of the three USF players to be rated as a draftable player is Derrick Calloway, who isn't on the team so I'm not sure if other players on the list are also gone from their respective programs.
