The NFL drags America through three days of drafting, starting on Thursday. Who from the Sun Belt is most likely to hear his name?

Last year, the Sun Belt saw a bump in NFL draft production, inking five to pro contracts. The previous two years totaled only six, leading many (me) to wonder if the Belt had lost its mojo.

This year’s Sun Belt draft corral lacks surefire bets like Troy’s Antonio Garcia (2017) or South Alabama’s Wes Saxton, but the stable is strong nonetheless. Will the Sun Belt best last year’s total? Hey, maybe!

The Green Room Five

Colby Gossett, OL, Appalachian State

Ja’Von Rolland-Jones, DE, Arkansas State

Trey Walker, DB, Louisiana

Jaleel Scott, WR, New Mexico State

Chandon Sullivan, DB, Georgia State

Rolland-Jones ad Scott have the resume, and Gossett put in the best Combine. These three seem the be the safest bets.



Guys With Some Buzz

Jeremy Reaves, DB, South Alabama

Brandon Silvers, QB, Troy

Blake Mack, TE, Arkansas State

Larry Rose, RB, New Mexico State

Eric Boggs, LB, Appalachian State

Aikeem Coleman, DE, Idaho

Jordon Chunn, RB, Troy

Jaline Moore, RB, Appalachian State

All these guys deserve a pick, especially the RBs on the list, who are some of the finest in Sun Belt history.

Dudes Who’ll Get a Sniff (and an FA Contract)

Dee Liner, DL, Arkansas State

Matt Linehan, QB, Idaho

Taylor Lamb, QB, Appalachian State

Steven Rowzee, OL, Troy

Tee Simms, DL, Appalachian State
