Despite back-to-back two-win seasons, a handful of Arkansas football prospects will likely be selected in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Arkansas Razorbacks Football program is coming off a second straight 2-10 season that led to the firing of head coach Chad Morris.
Despite this, the Hogs still had plenty of SEC talent and three of their standout players will likely hear their names called before the end of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Here are some potential landing spots for the soon to be NFL Hogs.
The Razorbacks’ top draft prospect is tight end, Cheyenne O’Grady who hauled in 87 passes for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns in his four years at Arkansas. His best year came as a junior in 2018 when he hauled in a career-high 400 yards with six touchdowns in just eight games. He is a projected fourth round pick in the upcoming draft.
O’Grady could fit in well with the Seattle Seahawks. The team added veteran Greg Olsen and will have Will Dissly returning from injury, which gives O’Grady plenty of time to develop.
At Arkansas, it took O’Grady three years to earn the starting job, which should allow him to patient in Seattle. With Olsen on a one-year deal, it’s likely his stay in Seattle will be brief, which means O’Grady could potentially find himself fighting for a starting role as soon as 2021.
Projection: Fourth round (Seahawks)
