2019 NFL Draft prospects to watch in USU vs. UNT bowl game


Coach Andy Mac

Recommended Posts

North Texas

E.J. Ejiya, LB 

Ejiya followed a 108-tackle, 12-tackle-for-loss, seven-sack 2017 with 113 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, and nine sacks in his senior season for the Mean Green. More linearly explosive than he is twitchy when changing directions, Ejiya routinely attacks downhill with a lot of force, and because of that, is a good blitzer. His speed is his greatest strength on the football field, and at 6-2 and 230 pounds, he has NFL size for the linebacker spot. Eliya needs to get more tenacious shedding blocks, but right now has the game to potentially get drafted as a late-round pick. 

Mason Fine, QB

Fine's prooobably going to stay at North Texas for his senior season, but he's been good enough in his first three years for the Mean Green that I feel compelled to write about him here. He completed 64.6 percent of his passes in 2018 at a respectable 8.2 yards-per-attempt average with 27 touchdowns to just five interceptions. The biggest problem with his pro projection is that he's listed at only 5-11. He's operated the offense of Seth Littrell -- a Mike Leach disciple -- marvelously. Fine has a quick delivery, good accuracy, and more arm strength than you'd expect for someone his size.

We need Kyler Murray to go pro this year and have a good rookie year. People say he's 5 foot 8 so if he can do find early success, it might pave the way for Fine.

Murray is also a lot faster than Fine

No many sub 6' QB's that have been successful in the NFL without being fairly mobile.

Rumor is he prefers football and would rather go to the NFL as a QB. The game against Alabama will go a long way to determining what he does IMO.

And break a multi-million dollar deal with the A's?  I don't think they will let him out of his contract.

He would have to repay part of his guaranteed money and be done with it. If he's serious about the NFL and GMs are saying he'll go in the 1st round he might do it.
