After four quarterbacks left the table in the first round of the NFL draft, Jalen Hurts of Oklahoma was the only QB to participate in rounds two and three on Friday.
This means that on Saturday, when rounds four through seven are completed, at least a few notable passers-by will be available. And more than a few other intriguing players, especially if you’re looking outside of the Power Five schools.
Follow rounds 4 to 7 of the NFL Draft live today at noon and / 9:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) on TSN3, TSN.ca, the TSN app and TSN Direct.
Jacob Eason of Washington and Jake Fromm of Georgia both entered the project with one year of eligibility remaining. The two will enter the final day of the project while waiting to be selected. Eason is a former five-star recruit with a huge arm. Fromm is the former four-star who accepted Eason’s post in Georgia after his injury. The two had irregular seasons in 2019 and were considered third-round talents. But quarters tend to be overdiscovered, so it’s a bit surprising to see them still available.
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty
Gandy-Golden has posted insane numbers the past two seasons at Liberty, a newcomer to the FBS. He caught 150 passes for 2,433 yards and 20 touchdowns. At 6 feet 4 inches and 220 pounds, Gandy-Golden can move like a gymnast – he was one when he was little.
Curtis Weaver, Edge Rusher, Boise State
Mountain West’s defensive player of the year tied for fifth in the country with 13.5 points. At 6-2 and 265 pounds, he is not the most explosive athlete, but a hardworking rusher of passes who may be able to fight his way to become an effective NFL player.
Amik Robertson, BC, Louisiana Tech
Robertson is a spirited, quick and undersized cornerback at 5-8, 187 pounds. But he plays games. Robertson has collected 14 interceptions in the past three seasons and 48 assists. Should be effective in the slot.
Kenny Robinson, S, XFL
Robinson played in West Virginia, but his university career ended in the summer of 2019 due to academic problems. Instead of trying to transfer, Robinson signed with the XFL St. Louis BattleHawks. The variegated 6-1, 205-pound playmaker has shown himself in the fledgling mid-season, improving his draft stock
Ben Bartch, OT, Saint John’s (Min.)
There has already been a Division II safety draft player from Lenoir-Rhyne, Kyle Dugger, who made the start of the second round against the New England Patriots. The Bartch 6-5, 305 pounds could be the second. He started his career as a close end before regrouping to play tackle and kept his athleticism.
