Small School Big Board: The Aftermath

Top 100 

1. Derek Rivers (Youngstown State EDGE) *drafted 3rd Rd 83rd overall to the New England Patriots

derek-rivers-youngstown-state-university-de-2017-1024x580

New England rookie Derek Rivers looks to make a huge impact as an early starter.

 

Though Rivers was the second player off the board, he goes to the best situation. He has an excellent defensive coordinator in Matt Patricia, that will put Rivers in the best positions to succeed. He could go from Youngstown State to being a Super Bowl winner in one season.

14. Keionta Davis (UT Chattanooga)

15. Roderick Henderson (Alabama State NT) *Signed as UDFA with the Tennessee Titans

20. Ethan Cooper (Division II IUP OG) *Signed as UDFA with the Pittsburgh Steelers

Mike Munchak will turn Cooper into a Pro Bowl caliber player. Bold prediction? Maybe, but this marriage of  athleticism and coaching talent bodes well for the Steelers.

Craig is a great scheme fit here. He’s an exceptional pass rusher from the interior defensive line. He’s got a solid shot to make the 53 as well.
