Five most overrated players in the 2019 NFL Draft

D.K. Metcalf had one of the best combines over the past several years, but his production does not add up to the amazing numbers.

D.K. Metcalf – WR – Ole Miss – Everyone is on the D.K. Metcalf bandwagon, but I am very worried about him as a prospect. He is a freak, very similar to Kevin White when he came out of West Virginia. My most concerning is Metcalf has struggled to stay healthy, which has him entering the NFL with just 67 catches for 1,228 yards in three seasons at Ole Miss. Additionally, Metcalf is a straight-line runner who is not quick laterally and could struggle to get open at the NFL level.

Kyler Murray – QB – Oklahoma – Kyler Murray has started one season. While he dominated the one season he played in the NCAA he also had the best offensive line in the entire NCAA. He had solid weapons as well, and he was able to replicate the success that Baker Mayfield did. While I feel he will be a good prospect, because of his athletic abilities I feel he is going to be overdrafted.

Rashan Gary – EDGE – Michigan – Rashan Gary is an elite athlete who has all the measurables, and his testing numbers have not led to the kind of dominance you’d expect. He disappeared for long periods at Michigan and finished his career with just 9.5 sacks and 23 tackles for a loss in three seasons.

Greg Little – OT – Ole Miss – I have been talking to NFL scouts and he is the one player that seems to come up in every conversation. They tell me he is lazy, he has a bad rap with his coaches, and he is not a left tackle. Many tell me this kid will fall and would not be surprised to see him go in the third round.

Dexter Lawrence – DT – Clemson – You do not draft nose tackles early, and he is player I feel will be overdrafted. During his junior year, Lawrence had just 1 1/2 sacks and 7 tackles for a loss. Lawrence had a chance to show off at the combine, but injured his quad during his 40-yard dash time. He does not seem like a first or second rounder to me, but he will end up being taken there.
