Kyle Avaloy

Height: 6’5

Weight: 330

Position: OL-Guard

School: Illinois State

Analysis:

Avaloy is a mountain of a man, who specializes in blasting bodies off the ball. He has NFL size and power, and does well in pass protection. His best fit at the next level is Guard, but he could play Tackle in a pinch. He was Second Team All-MVFC last year, and has been better this year.

 

Javancy Jones

Height: 6’2

Weight: 235

Position: LB/DE

School: Jackson State

Analysis:

Jones is a 3X All-American, and a very disruptive player. He’s very versatile, and could fit into any scheme. But, he seems tailor made for a 3-4 defense, and could play all four Linebacker spots. He has the athleticism to translate to the next level. He’s very dangerous coming off the edge and could fill a Vic Beasley (Atlanta Falcons) style role.

 

Brendan Langley

Height: 6’2

Weight: 193

Position: CB

School: Lamar

Analysis:

This ex-SEC Georgia transfer has the size that many NFL teams covet. His six interceptions this year stand in testament to his above average ball skills. He has good speed and footwork, and shows the ability to mirror Receivers. He has a lot of potential at CB, but will have a learning curve because of a late position change. He played WR until last year.

 

Division 2

Jack Nelson

Height: 6’4

Weight: 225

Position: QB

School: Winona State

Analysis:

Nelson has had an amazing career so far, racking up over 10,000 career passing yards and over 50 career passing touchdowns. He runs a pro-style offense, and has the arm strength to navigate adverse weather conditions in Minnesota. He could be a solid developmental prospect, but will have to adjust to the game speed of the next level.

 

Joe LoSchiavo

Height: 6’3

Weight: 305

Position: OL-Center

School: Slippery Rock

Analysis:

Joe has been very good anchoring SRU’s offensive line. He has good size and functional strength to play at the next level. At times, he exhibits a mean streak and seeks out contact. He’s another prospect that could benefit from a year or two under the tutelage of an NFL position coach, but could end up being a very solid player.
