Ranking BYU’s Top 15 Prospects For 2019 NFL Draft
Who are BYU’s top draft-eligible prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft?
Underclassmen lead the way
The 2018 NFL Draft is in the rear-view mirror, but it’s already time to start looking ahead to the 2019 Draft! In the words of Edwin Mulitalo and many BYU football players at practices, “Cheeehooo!”
This is a ranking of the draft-eligible players who I feel will be BYU’s top prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft. For underclassmen, doesn’t mean that they are declaring, but they are NFL talents if they were to enter the NFL Draft process.
15. Ului Lapuaho, OL
Will he play again? Knee injuries have left Lapuaho out of seeing any game action since September of 2016. Lapuaho was once praised by Bronco Mendenhall as a future NFL prospect. He was around the program during spring practices.
14. Tevita Mo’Unga, DL*
Projected interior starting defensive lineman. Injuries have been an issue, but can be a classic run stuffer as a one-technique.
13. Matt Hadley, LB/DB
A good all-around athlete who can add value in many different positions: linebacker, defensive back, running back, and even special teams.
12. Squally Canada, RB
More games like his performance against UNLV last season and he will see a lot more looks.
11. Butch Pau’u, LB
Undersized linebacker, but if he regains his 2016 form, he can impress on film. Was the reason that Harvey Langi, now a member of the New England Patriots, was switched from MLB to DE.
