Yetur Gross-Matos: 2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Yetur Gross-Matos is a stud edge rusher who has made even more strides from his dominant sophomore season (ninth-ranked 20 tackles for loss) to pretty much guarantee himself as a day one selection. Gross-Matos has been through two terrible tragedies in his life but has shown great courage and resiliency. When he was just two years old, his father drowned in a boating accident and then under nine years later his older brother was killed by a lightning strike on a baseball field. He will continue to play for his father and brother while leaving it all out on the field. Gross-Matos has all the traits to be a leader and an unstoppable force in the NFL. Now let’s get to the grades.

Ashtyn Davis: 2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Davis is a former track-star who’s athletic abilities have transferred very well to the football field. As a redshirt-senior, Davis has already accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl to further attempt to boost his stock. I love how an analyst over at TDN (The Draft Network) put it. He said that labeling Davis as a “track athlete” is incorrect. He should be labeled as “a football player, who happens to also be good in track and field.”

Justin Herbert: 2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Everybody is in love with the measurables of Justin Herbert and how well he projects at the quarterback position, but how high is his ceiling?

Tyler Johnson: 2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Tyler Johnson is a very consistent target who runs crisps routes and provides plenty of YAC. His speed isn’t top of the line, and his physicality for his size isn’t there, but Johnson is reliable and catches most of what’s thrown his way.

Trevon Diggs is a former wide receiver who hones in on some of these abilities at the cornerback position. He’s a very lengthy, yet very fast corner who is still learning the ins and outs of the position. His versatility is going to be cherished by any NFL coach.

Shaun Wade: Scouting Report

Shaun Wade is just a redshirt sophomore for the Buckeyes, but he is a difference maker on that field. He plays a lot of press and zone coverage, so strictly scouting his man-to-man ability was a bit tough for me. He looks as though he could play slot corner, safety, or even linebacker if needed.
