The 2021 NFL Draft is almost here as we are getting down to the final 48 hours before the selection process begins. And that means some Oregon football stars will hear their names called on Thursday night through Saturday.
One Oregon player, in particular, will hear his name called very early on as Penei Sewell is projected as the top offensive lineman in the class. He’s expected to go in the top five on Thursday night and there’s one team that has been mentioned with him more than the rest (you’ll have to wait and see who that is). The former All-American and Outland Trophy winner is going to make one team very happy and some scouts even think he has Hall of Fame potential.
Then there are guys like Jevon Holland, Thomas Graham Jr., and Deommodore Lenoir. All three helped make Oregon’s defensive backfield stingy over their careers.
Holland and Graham Jr. opted out of the 2020 season along with Sewell so the only player who will likely be drafted from Oregon who played snaps this past year is Lenoir. The other three have seen their draft stock either stay the same or slightly drop by not playing and preparing for the process.
Graham Jr. is the guy who I believe could have seen the biggest rise in stock if he played this season based on his breakout season in 2019.
Where will Graham Jr., Holland, Lenoir, and Sewell end up getting selected in the 2021 NFL Draft?
