Sun Belt

Rnd Name Pos School Notes
4th Andrew Jackson ILB Western Kentucky Stout run defending linebacker best in the box or up the field. Explosive, attacks ball handlers and easily brings them down at the point of contact. Shows no skill in pursuit and limited abilities making plays outside the box. More of a two-down defender.
4-5 Antonio Andrews RB Western Kentucky Elusive ball carrier with an array of skill. Strings several moves together over the course of a single run, can turn the corner and effective catching the ball out of the backfield. Not a sturdy runner and more of a rotational back.
6th Melvin Meggs G South Alabama Terrific college tackle who projects to guard. Wide bodied blocker, moves well on his feet and showed consistent progress. Has a large upside.
7th Jonathan Dowling S Western Kentucky University of Florida transfer. Aggressive, sideline-to-sideline safety that shows skill covering the pass or defending the run.
FA Daniel Quave G La-Lafayette Wide bodied lineman who dominates as a run blocker and anchors in pass protection. Has an upside and definite next level ability.
FA Steven Haunga G Arkansas State Underrated lineman who combines terrific size, strength and movement skills. Stands out in pass protection and holds his own run blocking. Has an upside.
FA Sterling Young S Arkansas State All around safety that shows good ball skills. Can play a traditional free safety position or line up over the slot receiver.
FA Josh Allen C Louisiana-Monroe Explosive zone blocking prospect with a solid game. Shows the ability to bend and flex, moves well on his feet and very quick in his entire game. Effective in motion and can hit moving targets on the second level.
FA Isaiah Newsome S Louisiana-Monroe Solid safety with a complete game yet physical limitations.
FA Jamal Robinson WR La-Lafayette
FA Joseph Treadwell T Louisiana-Monroe Relatively athletic blocker with solid movement skills. Can slide in space, effective in pass protection and has an upside. Needs to improve his finishing strength yet must be watched.
FA J.D. McKissic WR Arkansas State Quick receiver with run after the catch ability.
FA Amos Draper DT Arkansas State Undersized defensive end who plays with explosion and athleticism. Potential three technique tackle.
FA David Oku RB Arkansas State Quick, creative ball carrier who also stands out as a pass catcher. Potential third down back/rotational ball carrier at the next level.
FA Je’Ron Hamm WR Louisiana-Monroe Well sized possession receiver with strong hands. Uses his size as an advantage and usually comes away with the difficult grab. More of a one-speed wide-out.
FA Alonzo Harris RB La-Lafayette
FA Brandon McCray DT La-Lafayette
FA Terry Johnson G La-Lafayette JUCO transfer who flashed skill last season. Must finish his game but offers the tools to work with.
