New, 5 comments

Can the Frenchman get drafted?

NCAA Football: Foster Farms Bowl-Arizona vs Purdue Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Anthony Mahoungou

Size: 6’3”, 205 Pounds

Position: Wide Receiver

College Stats: 61 Catches, 880 Yards, 8 Touchdowns, 14.4 Yards per catch

Experts Opinion: Experts rank Mahoungou 129 out of 321 Wide Receivers in the upcoming draft, which puts him in the undrafted area. But, many scouts like how his pro day went. He ran a mid 4.5 forty, has decent size and peaked late in the year. Many experts say he will stick as an undrafted free agent.

My Opinion: I agree with the experts. I expect him to go undrafted. He peaked late in the season and was not used correctly his first two years on campus. He exploded against Iowa and had an exceptional bowl game, both on national television. He has great size at 6’2”, a mid 4.5 forty, 9’11” Broad Jump, 29 inch vertical - these all show how explosive he can be.

He was a big piece of clay that Brohm molded to be an exceptional wide receiver. If he can get onto a practice squad, I think he could be an NFL WR at some point in his career. But, I could also see a career in Canada.

Best of luck, Anthony!
