2014 NFL Draft Small School Prospects

NFL Draft small school prospects

by Tyler Lurkins

Larry Webster-DE-Bloomsburg-6’6”, 240 lbs

Webster is an NFL legacy as his father played in the NFL.

It’s doubtful he’ll see the top three rounds, but a good combine could have many scouts pushing

Webster up the board. Though only playing one year of D2 football, Webster shows promise and can be

developed. Projected round: 4 or 5.

Billy Turner, LT, N. Dakota St.-6’6”, 315 lbs.

Typically one small school lineman finds himself in the late

first, early second round area. Turner is the safest small school prospect. A natural mauler, Turner can

easily start at RG or RT for many NFL teams, but if he can show consistency, Turner will be considered at

LT. Projected round: 2

Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood-6’2”, 205 lbs.

Desir is a man amongst boys on the field. Much like a

Trumaine Johnson, or a Sean Smith, Desir’s sheer size and speed will generate a buzz. Desir may

also see special team reps, and if he can get under a 4.45, 40 yard dash, Desir can see 2nd

consideration. Projected round: 2 or 3

Jeff Mathews, QB, Cornell-6’3”, 225 lbs.

Garappolo is the name on most radars, but Mathews will be

the lead prospect in the long run. Many NFL teams are looking for anything at QB. With such a poor

QB class in this draft, the skills of Mathews will only move faster into the limelight. Mathews will

mechanically be one of the better QB’s in the draft. Projected round: 2

Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley St.-6’3”, 220 lbs.

Janis is very sure handed with excellent size and speed.

He is on the NFL radar, but needs to hit a 4.4, 40 yard dash to be relevant. However, as far as small

school prospects go, momentarily he is a top 5 prospect.


Caraun Reid, DT, Princeton

Jimmy Garappolo, QB, Eastern Illinois

Dakota Dozier, G/T, Furman
