FUTURE STARS

CAM TAYLOR-BRITT – CB – NEBRASKA

After accepting a Senior Bowl invite during the week, Cam Taylor-Britt is well and truly in the spotlight. 

Taylor-Britt is a corner who possesses great ball skills and a strong ability to recover. He has relatively good instincts and awareness too. When it comes to testing his long speed may be a concern and he may be better suited to a zone coverage scheme.

After an average start to the season, Taylor-Britt has turned it on in the back half of the 2021. With the chance to really improve his draft stock, as he heads to the Senior Bowl, it will be really interesting how he is able to compete in one on ones. 

LEO CHENAL – LB – WISCONSIN

Leo Chenal is a player who has really risen up draft boards in 2021. He appeared on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List in the summer and has played up to his billing. 

A real physical linebacker, Leo Chenal dominates on tape. He is a leader on the defence and attacks every play. Chenal is a linebacker who thrives in the running game where he can use his excellent tackling ability and physicality to control the game. 

Leo Chenal is now being spoken about highly in a good linebacker class. With another top game, Chenal will be viewed as one of the most consistent and aggressive linebackers in the 2022 class.

SEVYN BANKS – CB – OHIO STATE

2021 has been a difficult year for Sevyn Banks. A projected day 2 pick in the summer, Banks’s play has not taken a step forward. 

A versatile corner, Sevyn Banks has plenty of experience in the Ohio State secondary. He is a corner who plays better in man coverage. He is a physical player who prefers to press and has good movement skills.

So far in 2021 Banks has not lived up to the hype that a Buckeye corner naturally has. While he has something to work with and he does possess a high ceiling, Banks needs to push his name into the conversation to be picked early on day 3.

KEVIN HARRIS – RB – SOUTH CAROLINA

Kevin Harris is another player who has disappointed in the 2021 season. He was the SEC’s leading rusher in 2020 and his draft projection was good prior to the season. 

With only 402 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns on the season, to go with his 97 receiving yards, there is little doubt that he has disappointed. Harris is a thumper of a running back and is an aggressive and violent runner. He is a powerful runner who possesses great strength and is able to pick up yards after contact.

Harris may be a player who may decide to return to school, but if his heart is set on declaring, Harris needs to show an NFL team exactly what they will be getting. 

JEREMY RUCKERT – TE – OHIO STATE

Due to all the weapons Ohio State has on offence, Jeremy Ruckert is usually passed over in the conversation. But, Ruckert has quietly had a strong 2021 season.

Ruckert is a tight end who is best utilised as a blocker. Able to contribute on running and passing downs, Ruckert is a true NFL talent. While he won’t be a prolific pass catcher in the NFL, Ruckert has strong, clean hands and a good catch radius when receiving the ball. 

The 2022 tight end class is wide open and really deep. Ruckert is up there with the best blocking tight ends in the class and will be able to contribute from day 1 on an NFL team.
