A look at three potential prospects who haven’t been featured in many mock drafts, but could end up being a surprise first-round pick.
ICONYoung is a playmaker in every sense of the word.
WR Titus Young: Boise State
I talked to a scout after the Senior Bowl who said he thought Young would be the most overdrafted player this year due to his ability to create big plays down the field. His stock has taken a slip slightly since then because of his just-decent performance numbers at the NFL Combine. However, teams toward the back end of round one who could use a vertical threat like Young — Ravens, Patriots and Packers — might all take a look.
CB Brandon Harris: Miami
Harris is another guy who has kind of fallen by the wayside in this year’s draft among a group of bigger, more physical corners. However, much like Devin McCourty last year, Harris possesses natural man cover skills, is comfortable in off and knows how to adjust and make a play on the football. You can never have too many good young corners and I think Harris still has a real shot to hear his name called later in round one.
FS Rahim Moore: UCLA
Supply vs. demand. That’s the biggest thing Moore has going for him in this year’s NFL Draft. Is he worth a first-round pick? In my opinion, No. However, there isn’t much talent at the safety position in this year’s class and if you want a guy who can come in and play in centerfield right away, a team might need to reach on Moore in round one.
