The NFL Draft is less than 2 weeks away (April 27-29), and former BYU players have been meeting with NFL teams in hopes of getting drafted.
WalterFootball.com put together this list of where 2017 draft prospects have met thus far. Although the list is incomplete, is gives an idea of some of the teams that BYU players have met with.
Andrew Eide, G: Patriots, Saints
Harvey Langi, ILB: Browns, Broncos
Jamaal Williams, RB: Bears, Browns, Rams
According to Minnesota’s Star Tribune, the Minnesota Vikings are showing interest in Jamaal Williams, and have met in-person with him.
Williams and Langi are BYU’s two most likely players to be drafted. NFL.com recently put out a mock draft that has Langi going in the 3rd Round to the Patriots, and Williams in the 4th round to the Texans.
Another BYU player that has been garnering a lot of draft buzz has been safety Kai Nacua. Nacua’s pro day performance, where he ran a 4.48 40-yard dash, has put him on the radar of many NFL teams.
One of those teams is the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles' senior director of college scouting was at BYU’s pro day and had a chance to see Nacua up close. NJ.com has the Eagles taking Nacua in the 4th round. Chiefswire.com, a USA Today affiliate, recently gave Nacua a 2nd round grade.
The last time BYU had multiple players drafted was 2010, when Dennis Pitta was picked up in the 4th round by the Baltimore Ravens and Harvey Unga was picked up in the 7th round of the supplemental draft by the Chicago Bears.
