Infamously, no historically black college or university (HBCU) prospect was selected in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, there was a four-player rebound last cycle. But the 2023 NFL Draft could see even more talented HBCU prospects hear their names called in April, with others signing UDFA deals.
And with the XFL and USFL seemingly sticking around for the long haul — not to mention the ever-present CFL — opportunities have never been more abundant.
Thanks to the likes of former NFL stars turned head coaches (such as former Jackson State HC Deion Sanders), NFL draft analysts (such as ESPN’s Jordan Reid), and countless others behind the scenes (such as DraftHBCU’s Maliik Obee and Gerald Huggins Jr.), HBCUs have received an increasing amount of coverage and attention on the college and draft stages. So why not stoke the flames?
Top HBCU Prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft
Looking for the top FCS prospects? You can find them here: Top FCS 2023 NFL Draft Prospects Led by Cody Mauch, Tucker Kraft, and Xavier Gipson.
Isaiah Land, EDGE/LB, Florida A&M
As the reigning Buck Buchanan Award winner, given to the nation’s top defensive player in the FCS, there were high expectations for Isaiah Land. After securing a nation-leading 19 sacks and 25.5 tackles for loss in 2021, his six and nine, respectively, last season were a bit underwhelming on the surface.
But when you dig deeper, those numbers are actually impressive. Land missed much of spring practice with a hip injury, was ruled ineligible for Week 0 due to administrative errors, and was out in Week 7 with a knee injury.
Land has the lateral agility, flexibility, get-off, short-area burst, overall speed, and bend to threaten the edge — in the FCS and the pros. He showed off his explosiveness at the Combine, recording a 4.62 40-yard dash, 34.5″ vertical, and 10’6″ broad.
Still, at 6’3″ and 236 pounds, Land won’t be able to live off the edge in the NFL. But his athleticism and tape highlight a weapon as a pass rusher, and teams would be wise to tap into it. It’s up to the franchise that selects Land to unlock his full potential, but the tools are there to enjoy a long career as an off-ball linebacker with blitz and subpackage rushing opportunities.
Mark Evans II, OL, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
The last time Arkansas-Pine Bluff had a player chosen in the NFL draft? 2013. The drought ends in April.
Mark Evans II started four seasons at left tackle for the Lions, earning all-conference honors in three straight years. He’s nimble on his feet with strong hands to deaden rushes in their tracks. But his most enticing trait is his mobility — Evans can work to the second level while also being able to set against speed rushers.
Now, his Combine numbers weren’t exceptional — even poor in some areas — but it didn’t detract from what I saw on film. At 6’2″ and 303 pounds with 32″ arms, a move to the interior is almost guaranteed. Yet, with increased weight and strength, Evans could thrive there. He could — and likely should — be the first HBCU prospect off the board come April.
Jordan Lewis, EDGE, Southern
After suffering a lower-body injury in Week 5, Jordan Lewis was relegated to part-time play. Still, his career body of work is that of one of the top edge rushers in the country. He’s generated 10+ tackles for loss and 5+ sacks in every season since 2019.
Lewis became the first-ever SWAC player to win the Buchanan Award in the 2021 spring season, highlighting his peak potential. Yet, much like Land, his draft prospects are a bit in the air at 6’1″ and 218 pounds (HBCU Combine). But unlike Land, we saw Lewis at off-ball LB this year — and he looked good.
The production, intangibles, and athleticism are there for him to make it to the NFL. The only question is, can he switch positions full-time and remain effective?
Kemari Averett, TE, Bethune-Cookman
A 6’6″, 260-pound TE that can stretch the field vertically? Sign me up. Kemari Averett transferred from Louisville two seasons ago and has ravaged defenses since. Not only does he win inline, in the slot, or even out wide, but Averett has enough wiggle and long-strider speed to pick up yards after the catch.
With how the NFL is evolving, tight ends that are weapons in the passing game are extremely valuable. And he’s no slouch as a run blocker, either. Averett shouldn’t have to wait too long to hear his name called in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Joshua Pryor and Ellison Jordan, DL, Bowie State
Over 49 career games, Joshua Pryor has racked up 77 tackles for loss (DII all-time record) and 32 sacks. Sure, it’s been against D2 competition, but he can only play the men across from him. And Pryor has made it clear that he’s on another level.
He’s still growing into his NFL build (6’4″, 240+, 33″ arms) but already wins with his blend of speed and power. Add in his violent hands, imposing lower-body strength, and second gear around the arc, and Pryor deserves a look from NFL franchises.
Ellison Jordan (6’0″, 330 pounds) will be a 26-year-old rookie, having begun his career at Penn State from 2016-2018. Although he was quite literally “a man amongst boys” at Bowie State, it’s hard to dominate from the interior — yet that’s all he did. In nine games last season, Jordan produced 13 TFLs, eight sacks, and three forced fumbles while also forcing runs to the outside.
Shaquan Davis, WR, South Carolina State
Shaquille Leonard. Javon Hargrave. Decobie Durant. What do all those names have in common? They are South Carolina State alumni selected in the NFL draft. And with another impressive season, Shaquan Davis is set to join them in 2023.
Davis has impressed with every opportunity he has received, announcing his existence to the national audience vs. Jackson State in the 2021 Celebration Bowl. At 6’4″ and 215+ pounds with speed to spare, he’s an instant mismatch for DBs.
The numbers back it up as well (per PFF): 20+ career yards-per-catch average, 77% first down plus touchdown rate, and 40% contested-catch rate.
Jadakis Bonds, WR, Hampton
Jadakis Bonds is nearly 6’3″ and 205 pounds, but that hasn’t stopped him from bullying his opponents to the tune of 34 touchdowns in 40 career games. He boxes DBs out like a basketball player and rises above the rim easily.
With plus body control, long speed, and ball tracking, Bonds pairs his red-zone-friendly size with immense downfield potential. Call competition into account all you want — Bonds shined at the Shrine Bowl against top-notch DBs, and he generated no shortage of highlight plays.
Aubrey Miller Jr., LB, Jackson State
There’s playing with your head on fire, and there’s Aubrey Miller. The Jackson State LB plays with a controlled violence that simply overwhelms opponents. He’s been the heart and soul of the Tigers’ defense since 2021, and he was one of two HBCU players a the Senior Bowl (Isaiah Land).
Fill lanes in the box? Check. Blitz off the edge? Check. Drop into zone and keep passes in front of him? Check. You name it, Miller can do it — and do it well.
Dallas Daniels, WR, Jackson State
Dallas Daniels is one of the more all-around pass catchers this cycle, as he’s able to win with long speed, easy acceleration, and excellent route running. He’s aggressive at the catch point, often coming down with contested targets. And he has the wiggle to be a threat after the catch. Daniels’ 2022 numbers (65-695-6 receiving line) won’t exactly wow, but he was Shedeur Sanders’ most-targeted receiver (90) for a reason.
De’Jahn Warren and Isaiah Bolden, CB, Jackson State
With all the hype surrounding true freshman top-five recruit Travis Hunter, De’Jahn “Nugget” Warren seemed to get lost in the shuffle. But he found his home in Week 4 and on, showcasing his next-level potential.
Warren sports excellent balance and fluidity at 5’10” and 175 pounds, with the explosiveness (33 1/2″ vertical, 10′ 1/4″ broad) and speed (4.57 40-yard dash) to stick to a myriad of receivers. His 29″ arms limit his ability at the catch point, but he never allowed a pass longer than 35 yards while at Jackson State.
Isaiah Bolden is a bigger-bodied defender (6’2″, 201, with 32.5″ arms), but he is an even more electric athlete than his JSU CB counterpart (4.33 40, 38″ vertical, and 10’9″ broad). He has manned the slot while also serving as the primary kick returner, taking two to the house in 2021. Last season was his first with significant starting snaps on defense (spent 2018-2019 at Florida State), but you couldn’t tell by his play.
Darius Hagans, RB, Virginia State
In 29 career games, Darius Hagans generated 2,497 yards from scrimmage and 22 total touchdowns. He’s a well-built 5’11” and 205 pounds, dashing to a 4.48 40-yard dash and producing impressive explosive numbers at the HBCU Combine (36.5″ vertical and 10’3″ broad). With stellar contact balance, patience, and a downhill rushing style, Hagans deserves an NFL call.
BJ Bohler, CB, Florida A&M
Safety Markquese Bell signed as an undrafted rookie with the Dallas Cowboys and is still on the team. CB BJ Bohler could have similar success. He may only be 5’9″ and 180 pounds, but Bohler is a certified playmaker on the outside. Don’t take my word for it: He’s had five picks and 17 more PBUs over the last two years.
A move to the slot in the NFL is likely required, but Bohler has the short-area burst to match two-way go’s, as well as the understanding of leverage and eye discipline to hold his own. And he’s a dependable special-teams player to boot!
Jason Dumas and Camron Peterson, DL, Southern
Across 46 career games at PVAMU (2018-2021) and Southern (2022), Jason Dumas has amassed 51.5 tackles for loss, 23.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles. 5’9″ and 276 pounds is not a build conducive to NFL success. However, Dumas makes up for it with a superb get-off, natural leverage, and rapid hands.
Meanwhile, Camron Peterson stands 6’4″ with 33″ arms and has EDGE/DT versatility. He’d be best utilized as a 3-4 defensive end, as he’s a sturdy run defender and flashed pass-rush potential in his final two collegiate seasons.
Brandon Barnes-Brown, CB, Fayetteville State
Last cycle, Joshua Williams became Fayetteville State’s first drafted player since 1976. And fellow cornerback Brandon Barnes-Brown looks to join him in the league in 2023.
Teams tested Barnes-Brown last season, with Williams shutting down the other side, but the student soon became the teacher. Barnes-Brown is a ball hawk outside, with 13 career INTs and 18 more PBUs. His recovery speed and fluidity offer him full range on the back end, but Barnes-Brown also contributes on special teams, which will go a long way toward making an NFL roster.
Xavier Smith, WR, Florida A&M
Xavier Smith won’t win many contested battles, but he doesn’t have to. He beats DBs with slippery route running and speed. Additionally, his lateral quickness and start/stop ability make him deadly in the open field. He’s best when deployed in the slot, and that’s likely where NFL teams will keep him.
Andrew Farmer II, EDGE, Lane
Andrew Farmer is a proportioned 6’3″ and 250 pounds with effective length and excellent speed. In just the last two seasons, he tormented opponents for 44 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks.
On the field-goal unit (bonus points for special-teams experience), Farmer nearly tracked down a DB from across the field who scored on a blocked kick. He has the range to flow sideline to sideline and the get-off to penetrate the pocket quickly.
Keenan Isaac, CB, Alabama State
Keenan Isaac’s size (6’2″, 180 pounds with 33″ arms) and physicality will draw interest, but he also moves exceptionally well. He’s quick to react/break in coverage, owning the fluidity required to flip his hips out of his backpedal. Moreover, Isaac is willing and able in run support, using his smothering length to great effect.
Jermaine McDaniel Jr. and Devin Harrell, EDGEs, North Carolina A&T
Injuries limited Jermaine McDaniel Jr. (6’2 “, 239) this year, but when he was on the field, he showcased attractive attributes. He’s quick off the line with sufficient bend to beat tackles around the arc. His red-hot motor might be genetic, as he’s the great-nephew of former Baltimore Ravens fullback Vonta Leach.
Regardless, health will factor into McDaniel’s draft status, as will his lack of film (he hasn’t played 250+ snaps since 2019). But what he has put on film is enough to warrant opportunities in the pros — he already received a selection in the USFL college draft (Round 6, pick No. 53).
McDaniel isn’t the only NC A&T defender who has pro potential. Devin Harrell isn’t quite the same athlete or pass rusher as McDaniel, and he struggled with tackling during his collegiate career. Yet, he’s quick off the edge in a two- or three-point stance, never gives up on reps, and has flashed the propensity to set up pass-rush moves.
Joseph Stuckey, LB, North Carolina A&T
At 6’0″ and 210 pounds, Joseph Stuckey is built more like a DB than a LB, and that’s reflected in his career snap counts: 100+ on the defensive line, 500+ in the box, and 1,000+ in the slot. But Stuckey’s biggest trump card is his reliability — he rarely misses tackles and simply doesn’t make glaring mistakes, no matter where he lines up.
Keyron Kinsler Jr., DB, Alcorn State
Nicknamed “The Hitman,” Keyron Kinsler Jr. is a relative of Kam Chancellor and was the key to Alcorn State’s defense. He flies around the field at a listed 5’11” and 185 pounds, displaying a vaunted downhill trigger and closing speed.
MORE: 2023 NFL Draft Big Board
A mainstay in the lineup since 2019, Kinsler is also a special-teams ace for the Braves. With a bevy of career snaps in the box, at deep safety, and in the slot, Kinsler brings sought-after versatility to the back end.
Emanuel Wilson, RB, Fort Valley State
There aren’t many 5’10” and nearly 230-pound rushers on the D2 level. And there sure isn’t another that moves as well as Emanuel Wilson. Wilson runs behind his pads and stocky build, frequently breaking arm tackles and pushing piles. And he is just as adept at reading his blocks and dashing through holes.
After averaging a stellar 119.3 yards per game and 5.7 per carry in 2021, Wilson has somehow turned it up a notch in 2022, reaching 139.1 and 6.8, respectively.
Robert Mitchell, OL, North Carolina Central
Robert Mitchell tore his knee in 2021 and returned even stronger. Since transferring from JUCO in 2019, he has yet to allow a sack with the Eagles and is arguably their best run blocker. Mitchell is a tank on the interior with experience at both guard positions and center. At 300 pounds, he’ll need to put on some muscle mass, but the tools are there to mold.
KeShaun Moore, DL, Hampton
After being a strictly outside-the-tackle edge rusher in 2021, KeShaun Moore put on weight (6’1 “, 279) and played all over the defensive line for Hampton. He is a force wherever he lines up, stunning blockers at the point of attack and exploding toward ball carriers.
With violent hands, vastly underrated athleticism (4.83 40-yard dash, 36.5″ vertical, 9’6” broad, 4.5 shuttle, and 37 reps on the bench press at this pro day), and sought-after versatility, Moore is a name to know heading into the 2023 NFL Draft.
Alfonzo Graham, RB, Morgan State
At 5’8″ and 182 pounds, Alfonzo Graham is a diminutive running back, but don’t let that fool you. He plays with a low center of gravity and is shifty in the open field. That’s why Morgan State tried to get him the ball whenever possible, utilizing him as a kick returner on top of his offensive production.
It’s easy to overlook Graham — literally — but his blend of foot quickness, vision, and sheer willpower is attractive. All he needs is one team to give him an opportunity.
Brooks Parker, LB, Delaware State
Brooks Parker is already preparing to play professional football … only his journey took him up north! The Delaware State defender signed with the BC Lions, immediately improving their competition at linebacker. At 6’1″ and 210 pounds, he’s a bit light, but there’s a reason DSU primarily deployed him along the line of scrimmage (500+ snaps on the edge vs. 200+ in the box over the last two seasons).
Parker shoots out of a cannon when he trusts his eyes, is a good tackler, and keeps everything in front of him in coverage. That’s not even to mention his prowess as a blitzer (five sacks over his final six games in 2022).
Ronnie Thomas, EDGE, Mississippi Valley State
Yet another CFL signee, Ronnie Thomas will join the Calgary Stampeders after being a two-time All-SWAC recipient and setting MVSU’s single-season record for sacks (10.5) last season. Thomas isn’t an overly explosive athlete, and his sub-30″ arms limit his ability to get off blocks up front.
However, at 5’9 1/2″, he boasts natural leverage and plays with violent, active hands. Thomas could parlay his Canadian excursion into an NFL opportunity if he continues to hone his craft.
Maurice Washington, RB, Grambling State
After leaving Nebraska and sitting out two years, Maurice Washington wound up at Grambling State and was simply presidential on the field. In 11 games, he took 61 carries for 589 yards and seven scores — that’s a whopping 9.7 yards per carry!
Washington is explosive out of the backfield, owns twitchy change-of-direction ability, and even has experience as a return man. There is little tread on his tires, and his next-level skill set is plain to see.
Antoine Murray, WR, Howard
Despite not possessing any “elite” physical traits, Antoine Murray routinely got open for Howard. He’s a savvy route runner with soft hands and served as the offense’s deep threat, averaging 16.9 yards per reception over the last two years. He doesn’t quite have the speed to burn defenders downfield, but Murray creates separation with his body and slips into space against zone with ease.
Rey Estes, CB, Grambling State
Rey Estes’ career is about as long and windy as you’ll find in the HBCU landscape. He was a high school QB, began his collegiate career at Minnesota, transferred to Riverside Community College, and finished off his tenure at Grambling. In 25 games for the Tigers, he recorded two INTs, 14 PBUs, and two forced fumbles.
Estes is a feisty competitor, willing to come up in run support and get physical WRs at the line and mid-route. The New Jersey Generals selected him with the last selection in the USFL college draft in February, and he could prove to be a key contributor in the secondary.
Demontario Anderson, EDGE, Texas Southern
While pro day numbers are going to be a bit inflated compared to those from the NFL Combine, we can definitively say Demontario Anderson is an athlete: 6’2 1/2″, 240 pounds, 4.62 40-yard dash, 4.2 shuttle, 36.5″ vertical, and 6.99 three-cone. However, testing numbers don’t mean much if they don’t show up on film — spoiler alert: they do for Anderson.
He’s a twitchy EDGE prospect with the bend to beat tackles around the arc. Anderson isn’t quite a polished product, but he has one of the highest ceilings among HBCU prospects and deserves a camp invite.
Jalen Fowler, QB, North Carolina A&T
Although Jalen Fowler doesn’t have an abundance of tape (17 career starts and fewer than 500 pass attempts), he displayed visible progress from 2021 to 2022. He got the ball out quicker, allowed fewer pressures to convert into sacks, and raised his completion percentage from 56% to 62%. He has the size (6’3″, 240), mobility, and arm strength that should entice some teams.
However, he has plenty of room to improve mechanically, and his lack of overall production and experience might force Fowler to journey to the USFL, XFL, or CFL before getting a shot in the big league.
Kai Gray, DB, Lincoln (PA)
As a 25-year-old rookie, Kai Gray was always going to face an uphill battle toward the NFL. After flashing as a free safety for Rutgers from 2016-2017, Gray ran into legal trouble that derailed his collegiate career. Luckily, he was able to catch on at Lincoln and rehabilitate his image.
Gray primarily played in the slot for the Lions, where he could best make an impact with his skill set. He forced four fumbles, broke up seven passes, and totaled 82 tackles last season, tacking on a blocked kick for good measure. He has the size/length/athleticism combination to play in the slot as a “tight end eraser” or play in two-high safety shells. Recently signing with the Edmonton Elks, don’t be surprised if Gray makes an impact early.
Drake Centers, OL, Texas Southern
A first-team All-SWAC member in the last two years, Drake Centers has made his name known in the southwest. After playing predominately guard to begin his career, he started 11 games at right tackle last season. And after a rough start to the year against PVAMU and North Texas, he settled into his groove.
Centers is a bit inconsistent in the run game and when finishing blocks, but he has the size/quickness combo that plays in the NFL. He can line up at all five positions on the o-line at 6’3″ and 300 pounds with over 33″ arms, but a full-time move inside is likely his best fit.
Dacquari Wilson, OL, North Carolina A&T
An all-conference lineman in both the MEAC and Big South, Dacquari Wilson has been at the forefront of NC A&T’s unit since 2019. He made calls at the line of scrimmage, exhibited the ability to play guard in 2022 after sticking solely at center the two years prior, and he allowed just one sack over the last three seasons (when he was at LG).
Wilson isn’t an above-average athlete, but he packs a powerful punch and is surprisingly technical as a pass blocker.
Isaiah Williams, DL, Delaware State
Brother of current Indianapolis Colts DT Chris Williams, Isaiah is one impressive prospect. Not only has he racked up 27.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks since spring 2020, but he’s an Emmy Award winner as a producer on the short documentary: Always a Hornet. The Past, Present, and Future of Delaware State University Football.
Williams has seen time in the A gap all the way out to wide-9 in his DSU career. He can win from multiple alignments, but his get-off and short-area burst would be best deployed over and inside opposing tackles, where his run defense shines. If Williams can improve his tackling (over 20% miss rate since 2021), he could crack an NFL roster with time.
Claudin Cherelus, LB, Alcorn State
Alongside Keyron Kinsler Jr., Claudin Cherelus has been a reliable presence in the heart of Alcorn State’s defense. At 6’0″ and 224 pounds, he’s rather light for a linebacker, but he’s also as athletic as they come: 38″ vertical, 10’5″ broad, and 4.5 40-yard dash.
The production matches the measurables, as Cherelus notched 25.5 tackles for loss and eight sacks over the last two years, knifing into the backfield with efficiency. As with most HBCU LBs, proving his capability in coverage will go a long way toward his NFL dream.
Dion Golatt Jr., QB, Bowie State
Succeeding Ja’rome Johnson at Bowie State was no easy task, but Dion Golatt Jr. didn’t back down from the challenge. Playing for his fifth offensive coordinator and starting a whole season for the first time in his career, Golatt proved to be an effective passer, averaging 12.8 yards per pass across 337 attempts, completing 61% of his throws, and owning an 18:8 TD-to-INT ratio.
The dual-threat talent is there for teams to mold, but Golatt just doesn’t have enough tape. Shining for a spring league could ultimately net him the NFL opportunity he deserves.
JJ Holloman, WR, Tennessee State
A former four-star recruit, JJ Holloman initially put his skill set on display at Georgia in 2018, hauling in 24 passes for 418 yards and five TDs. Yet, he was dismissed from the team, and couldn’t earn a full-time role at FIU.
MORE: 2023 NFL Draft Order
Holloman’s 33-353-1 receiving line in his one year at Tennessee State isn’t all that impressive, but he was the leading receiver by a decent margin (nine more targets and receptions than the next closest pass catcher).
The USFL’s New Jersey Generals saw enough in Holloman’s game to select him with the No. 23 overall selection in the league’s college draft. And his pro day numbers highlight his athletic prowess: 4.54 40 and 37″ vertical at 6’2″ and 215 pounds.
Ali Shockley, DB, Hampton
Hampton’s 5’10” and 180-pound hard-hitting hellraiser, Ali Shockley has thrived in the secondary for the Pirates. In 2021, he primarily aligned in the slot, but last year, he played a more traditional safety role (370 snaps in the box, 249 at deep safety, and 88 in the slot).
He doesn’t have the long speed for single-high looks, but his downhill explosiveness, play recognition, and ability to hammer pass catchers over the middle lend to viability closer to the line of scrimmage.
Dre Terry, LB, Alabama A&M
2022 was Dre Terry’s only season with significant snaps in his collegiate career, but the wait was worth it. In 11 games, he produced 85 total tackles (12 for loss), 1.5 sacks, one INT, two PBUs, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.
Standing 6’1″ and 240+ pounds, Terry is a big linebacker, and it shows in his pop on contact. He’s an above-average blitzer and can even play on the edge occasionally. Still, a lack of range as a run defender and overall coverage skill leave much to be desired. His experience on special teams will buoy his odds of landing in a non-NFL professional league.
