The Notre Dame Football team will see plenty of guys drafted this year, and one recent mock has one of their stars landing in the top-10.
We are getting ever so close to the 2021 NFL Draft, and we have been reading about former Notre Dame football stars going everywhere from the first round, to undrafted. One player who consistently gets picked in the first round is Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who is widely considered one of the best defensive players in this draft class.
In one recent mock, the Notre Dame star lands in the top-10.
Notre Dame Football star lands in the top-10
In the latest four-round mock draft over at Pro Football Network, Oliver Hodgkinson had one Notre Dame Football star landing in the top-10. The mock saw Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah go No. 9 to the Denver Broncos, bolstering the defense if they decide that they want to stay put with Drew Lock at quarterback on the other side of the ball.
The fit would actually be an excellent one for Owusu-Koramoah, as the Broncos picked him over Micah Parsons in this mock. JOK is going to be an elite player at the next level, as he is an outstanding tackler, can cover as well as any linebacker in this draft class, and is one of the more NFL-ready players available on defense this year.
Joining JOK in the first round of this mock is also left tackle Liam Eichenberg, who lands with the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 31 overall. The move makes sense for the Chiefs, as they got rid of both starting tackles this offseason, and Eichenberg will have a small learning curve after gaining so much experience at the college level.
The rest of this mock draft sees only two more players being selected, Tommy Tremble with pick No. 126 to the Tennessee Titans, and then Daelin Hayes at pick No. 138 to the Dallas Cowboys, both picks in the fourth round. Not having Aaron Banks picked within the top-three rounds is a bit of a shocker, but I believe that he could actually be the third Notre Dame football player off the board when the real draft kicks off on April 29.
