No Pac-12 football in 2020 means that football fans are going to miss out on the opportunity to see some great talent that figures to play in the NFL on Sundays. Look no further Kayvon Thibodeaux if you’re hoping to find some evidence of that statement.

This young man stands at six-foot-five and weighs 250 pounds. He exploded onto the scene in 2019 with 35 total tackles, including 14 that resulted in a loss of yardage, and nine sacks. Many believe that will translate over to the pro game fairly easily. He’s one of the guys that will probably declare for the selection meeting after the 2021 season.

812. . . . Zach Harrison, Ohio State . 3. player

Well, we wouldn’t be talking about an NFL Draft if we didn’t bring up the Ohio State Buckeyes now would we? Enter Zach Harrison from stage left, a six-foot-six and 265-pound prospect out o Columbus that we’ll have to wait until 2021 season to get a better look at.

As a freshman, he appeared in ten games, mostly in reserve duty, and he racked up 24 total tackles and 3.5 sacks in the process. When the Buckeyes resume football operations in 2021, Harrison will be asked to be the guy. He should be fine. If you’re an Eagles fan, you’ll want to keep his name in mind.
