Donald Payne

Height: 6’0

Weight: 220

Position: Safety

School: Stetson

Analysis:

It is quite an accomplishment to win a defensive player of the year award, in the Pioneer League Donald has three. He is prototypical size and strength for the Safety position, and has thoroughly dominated his opponents. Not only is he a playmaker at Safety, but he is also a very active special teams player. He currently has 538 career tackles, including 65.5 tackles for a loss.

Cooper Kupp

Height: 6’2

Weight: 205

Position: WR

School: Eastern Washington

Analysis:

This prolific Receiver has done almost everything he can do at the Collegiate level. He has broken career records for yardage, touchdowns, and receptions. Cooper has shown off explosive ability, polished route running and sure hands. Don’t sleep on this guy because he’s from a small school, he will be an impact player at the next level.

Markus Cook

Height: 6’3

Weight: 310

Position: Center

School: Jackson State

Analysis:

Markus has been a steadying force on the Jackson State Offensive Line. He gets good push in the run game, and does well in pass protection. Perhaps his biggest asset is his versatility, as he can play any spot on the interior. His move to Center was about as smooth as it gets, and it’s the position with his highest upside.

Corey Levin

Height: 6’5

Weight: 305

Position: OT/OG

School: Chattanooga

Analysis:

Another highly rated prospect for us is UTC standout Corey Levin. He has good size for either Tackle or Guard. Levin has a violent initial punch and used his feet to stay balanced. He’s a technician and even when he’s physically overmatched, he finds ways to win his individual matchup. He did well in his marquee bout with Alabama’s DT Allen, and made himself a couple bucks in the process.
