After a host of showcase games and scouting events for the 2019 NFL Draft, where does the stock lie for the biggest prospects from former Longhorns?
With the 2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, and East-West Shrine Game now all in the rear view mirror, the focus on the 2019 NFL Draft is going to get pretty intense. The Senior Bowl was one of the most evident scenes that some of these alumni could really standout at the next level.
The Texas Longhorns football program has plenty of talented and accomplished alumni that could be selected in the 2019 NFL Draft, or at least make an NFL roster. Last year saw a handful of former Texas football players selected in the NFL Draft, but this could be a much more potent class this year.
There’s a good list of 10-12 former Texas football players that are candidates to be selected in the 2019 NFL Draft. Of that list, there’s maybe one or two players that have an outside shot at becoming first round selections. At best, most of the players in this draft class that are former Longhorns could be day two selections.
Of the former Horns up for the 2019 NFL Draft, only one of them is an early entrant. Texas had four key players that were up for important early entrant 2019 NFL Draft decisions, but only one decided to pull the trigger and declare. The good news for the Horns is that there is enough depth with that position group to make up for the loss this upcoming season.
Here’s a look at a gauging of the 2019 NFL Draft stock for some of the biggest prospects that are products of the Texas Longhorns football program.
