2020 NFL Draft Prospects

Quartney Davis, WR

Career Snapshot: Two-year starter who caught 54 passes for 616 yards and four touchdowns as a senior in 2019. Made 45 catches for 585 yards and seven TDs as a junior. Missed two games in 2019, one with a back injury and the other due to an unknown ailment.

Positives: Nice-sized receiver with strong, quick hands. Smoothly releases off the line of scrimmage, uses his hands to separate from opponents and shields them away with his frame. Extends his hands to offer the quarterback a target, adjusts to the errant throw and snatches the pass out of the air. Displays terrific short-area quickness, effectively makes the reception on crossing patterns and sells routes.

Consistently comes back into the clearing to make himself an available target and competes to come away with the difficult catch. Tracks the pass in the air, possesses hand-eye coordination and exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the ball. Resilient and works to pick up yardage after the catch.

Negatives: One-speed receiver who lacks a second gear. Has a tendency to round off routes and isn’t sharp into breaks.

Analysis: Davis is a natural receiver with solid pass-catching skills who only needs to improve his route-running technique. He offers possibilities as a fourth receiver at the next level and could also be used as a punt returner.

Justin Madubuike, DT

Career Snapshot: First-year starter who made 45 tackles (11.5 for loss) with 5.5 sacks and two pass breakups as a junior in 2019. Made 40 tackles (10.5 for loss) with 5.5 sacks and two PBUs as a sophomore.

Positives: Explosive, quick three-technique tackle who is tough to stop. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, plays with tremendous pad level and consistently gets leverage on opponents. Very effective with his hands and displays a variety of moves to get off blocks and the ability to redirect to ball carriers. Agile, moves well laterally in pursuit of the action and works hard to make plays. Holds his ground and plays the run effectively.

Negatives: Lacks natural bulk and may not have much growth potential. Struggles to get off blocks and isn’t a powerful defensive tackle.

Analysis: Madubuike displayed significant progress the past two seasons, and after he decided to enter the draft, he went on to have a terrific workout at the combine. He’s a three-technique tackle who can also line up at defensive end in certain three-man fronts, and he’ll be productive at the next level in the proper system.

Braden Mann, P

Career Snapshot: Two-year starter who earned First Team All-SEC honors, punted 57 times for 2,686 yards and booted touchbacks on 42 of 70 kickoffs as a senior in 2019. Earned First Team All-America honors, punted 50 times for 2,549 yards and registered touchbacks on 57 of 80 kickoffs as a junior in 2018. Handled kickoff duties his first two seasons with the Aggies and kicked 88 touchbacks on 149 kickoffs.

Positives: Well-built punter with a bigtime leg. Can flip the field and shows himself to be a good directional punter. Displays the ability to place punts inside the 10-yard line. More than 50 percent of his punts in college traveled 50 yards or longer. Effectively handled kickoff duties at Texas A&M.

Negatives: Comes off a disappointing 2019 campaign. Had punts blocked in the past. Needs to improve his hang time.

Analysis: Mann was a consistent punter for Texas A&M and shows a bigtime leg. He needs to improve the details of his position and get better hang time on punts, but he has the ability to make an NFL roster.

Charles Oliver, CB

Career Snapshot: Three-year starter who made 29 tackles and tied for the SEC lead with 15 pass breakups as a senior in 2019. Made 31 tackles (four for loss) with one interception and eight pass breakups as a junior. Missed two games in 2019 due to an undisclosed injury. Missed two games in 2017 due to a shoulder injury.

Positives: Nice-sized defensive back who has flashed ability the past three years. Physical, mixes it up with receivers and uses his length as an advantage. Fluid, plays with excellent body control and displays good hands for the interception.

Negatives: Possesses an average burst and does not play to his 40 time. Faceguards too often and gets beaten downfield by opponents. Not a strong open-field tackler.

Analysis: Oliver possesses the measurables to play at the next level, but he was inconsistent on the college field and right now looks like he’s more athlete than football player.

Debione Renfro, CB

Career Snapshot: One-year starter who made 54 tackles (two for loss) with four forced fumbles and five pass breakups as a true freshman in 2017. Started five games and made 33 tackles (2.5 for loss) with four PBUs as a junior. Suspended for the first two games of 2019 due to a violation of team rules.

Positives: Nice-sized defensive back who can be used at corner or safety. Aggressive, hard-hitting and fights to get off blocks and make plays on the ball carrier. Has terrific length, shows the ability to burst to the ball out of his plant and physically defeats receivers to defend the pass. Works to keep the action in front of him.

Negatives: Lacks natural cornerback quickness and struggles to stay with receivers on crossing patterns. Deep speed may be an issue. Minimally productive at Texas A&M and never locked down a starting job.

Analysis: Renfro offers a lot of physical skills, but he’s very rough around the edges and needs a lot of work on his game. His size, demeanor and ability to make plays when the ball is in front of him makes me believe a move to safety is possible.

Kendrick Rogers,WR

Career Snapshot: First-year starter who caught 30 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns as a junior in 2019. Made 27 catches for 336 yards and five TDs as a sophomore. Missed one game in 2019 due to a left foot injury.

Positives: Athletic receiver with big upside. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, tracks the pass in the air and adjusts to make the difficult reception at full speed. Lays out and extends to come away with the tough grab. Comes back into the clearing to make himself an available target. Plays with balance and body control. Turned in a terrific workout at the combine.

Negatives: Lacks quickness and sharpness into routes and tends to round off breaks. Doesn’t display soft hands. Tends to wait for the pass to come to him.

Analysis: Rogers is an athletic specimen who has displayed flashes of big time ability the past two years, but he still needs to develop his game. He should get late-round consideration for future development, and at the very least, I see Rogers on a practice squad this fall.
