The 2021 NFL draft is fast approaching, kicking off a 5PM PST on 4/29. Let’s take a look at the Oregon draft prospects. We have 8 prospects with the potential to be drafted. We wish them luck and will definitely be rooting for them at the next level.
Penei Sewell, OT, Jr 6’5 331 Lbs
Penei won the Outland Trophy in 2019 as a sophomore. He is considered to be the best offensive line prospect this year, and even since 2007 when Joe Thomas was drafted. He was considered the top prospect in this year’s draft until opting out of the 2020 season. His hand size and some questions of his work ethic have dropped him a little on some boards, but he should still be drafted in the Top 10.
Jevon Holland, DB, Jr 6’1 200 Lbs
Jevon was considered the best S by some before opting out of the 2020 season. He had an excellent 2019 campaign with 66 tackles, 4 Interceptions, 4 passes defended with a TD. Holland was named to the 2ND Team All Conference. He has excellent ball skills with 9 Int’s in two seasons. He should be a late 1st rounder to mid 2nd round now.
Deommodore Lenoir, CB, Sr 5’11 203 Lbs
Lenoir had a very solid career, being named 2nd team All Conference for 2019 and 2020. In 2019, he had 47 tackles, 1 Int, 1 Forced Fumble, and 7 passes defended. He plays very physical. Some knocks on him are short arms and could improve eye discipline. He is projected as 3rd rounder.
Thomas Graham Jr, CB, Sr 5’10 193 Lbs
Thomas was Honorable mention All conference in 2019. He took a hit to his draft stock, by opting out of 2020 as well. He plays physical and has good ball skills. Scouts say he needs to work on his recovery speed and reading routes. He is projected anywhere between 3rd and 5th round.
Jordan Scott, DT, Sr 6’ 311 Lbs
Jordan was Honorable Mention All Conference twice. Jordan is very durable by playing all but 3 games. He is very experienced with a high motor. He will be drafted for his run stopping abilities. He gets a knock on his size and having some issues getting off double teams this year. He is projected as a day 3 draftee.
Brady Breeze, S, Sr, 6’ 196 Lbs
Brady was selected 1st Team All Conference for Special Teams in 2019. He showed out against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl by winning the MVP. He’s very instinctive, but has below average size for a traditional box safety. Will be used a Special Teamer more than likely. Projected as day 3 or UDFA.
Austin Faoliu, DT, Sr, 6’3 293 Lbs
Austin was Honorable Mention All Conference 2020. He has a quick first step and will be a run blocker. He doesn’t have the size to be a traditional nose tackle in the NFL, but could be a 3-4 DE. Projected to be taken on day 3 or an UDFA.
Nick Pickett, S, Sr, 6’ 210 Lbs
Nick is and excellent tackler and could be a traditional SS or thrive in a zone system. He tracks the pass in the air and works well with other DB’s in coverage. A knock against him is recovery speed. Probably a day 3 take or UDFA.
Hunter Kampmoyer, TE, Sr, 6’3 240 Lbs
Hunter started as a DE and moved to TE. He displays terrific blocking vision, but needs to add size and work on his receiving skills. Had some injury issues that hurts his stock and makes him kind of unknown. Could be taken as high as the 3rd round or not drafted at all.
