UB QB; BC CB enter draft

UB QB; BC CB enter draft … With the clocking ticking on underclassmen thinking about entering the 2019 draft, two more juniors have announced they will be turning pro this winter including Buffalo QB Tyree Jackson and Boston College CB Hamp Cheevers, both of whom are certain to draw plenty of interest from NFL teams. Jackson, for example, has all the tools to be a top-level NFL QB including impressive size (6-7, 245), elite arm strength and special athleticism, although most scouts we’ve talked with would have preferred he return to school to polish his craft as his pocket skills are very raw; he is a somewhat erratic passer when it comes to accuracy and his decision-making in the pocket can be inconsistent. Still, there is enough raw talent there to figure that someone will give him a shot with a late second-day or early third pick. Cheevers, meanwhile, isn’t all that big (5-10, 180) or necessarily fast, but he was one of the most opportunistic cover corners in the country this past fall when he picked off 7 passes. Like Jackson, Cheevers looks like he should start to get serious consideration no later than the early part of the third day this coming April.
