Bryant Koback | RB | 5-foot-10 ¾” | 209 lbs. | Toledo Rockets

Let’s begin our survey of the top skill position playmakers across all divisions of college football that were not extended an offer to attend the NFL Combine. At the very top of the list, independent of division, we have an important talent in Bryant Koback. Four games into his senior year at Springfield High School, Koback was averaging a mere 274 rushing YPG, 30.8 receiving YPG and had scored 21 total TDs (19 rushing) – plus another TD on a 90-yard kickoff return. For the kids at home, that’s an average of 33 PPG offered up by Koback’s lonesome.

If you really want your mind blown, consider that he accumulated those numbers in what essentially amounted to six quarters of play. Rushing for 2,015 yards and 31 TDs as a junior, Koback’s senior pace placed him on a collision course with entering career yardage and TD totals among the top-15 in HS history within the football-crazed state of Ohio. It just wasn’t meant to be. During Bryant’s fifth game, after taking the first carry to the house, he sprinted for a 40-yard pickup on a second carry that resulted in simultaneously being hit by three defenders. The result of which broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Prior to the injury, Koback provided a 4.35-second 40-yard dash during the U.S. Army National Combine:

Set up to be Mark Stoops’ replacement for Benny Snell in the backfield at Kentucky, Koback transferred to Toledo after a redshirt season in Lexington to be closer to his ailing mother. Koback was granted a hardship waiver by the NCAA to immediately take the field for the Rockets. Speaking of early age breakouts, Bryant created 917 rushing yards and 14 TDs as an 18-year-old at Toledo. Koback never missed a single down during his 44 games for the Rockets. Over his final three seasons, Koback averaged 100.2 rushing YPG (5.9 YPC) and 1.0 TD/game. He also proved he could excel through the air during his final two campaigns with a combined 54 receptions, 568 yards and seven TDs.

Bryant proved to the world that his game was ready for the next level in a Week 2 showdown with Notre Dame in South Bend last season. Koback powered through the Irish with 20/114/0 rushing and 3/16/1 receiving lines. Ahead in the game 29-24 with 1:09 remaining, Michael Mayer scored on an 18-yard reception to shut down the upset. Koback closed out his Toledo career with the fourth-most rushing yards (4,026), only trailing Kareem Hunt, Chester Taylor, and Wasean Tait. Koback’s 45 rushing TDs are the second-most in school history (Taylor scored 56). He also submitted the sixth-most (259, Week 9 in 2019 vs. Eastern Michigan) and 10th-most single-game rushing yards in program history (228, Week 4 in ‘19 at Colorado State).

Bryant really took it to heart when he learned his name wasn’t included among the NFL Combine invitees. After the 2020 COVID season forced them to alter their routines, NFL teams appear to be making a much stronger push toward planting scouts at nearly every Pro Day on the schedule. And Koback did not waste that opportunity to showcase his athleticism with a 4.49-second 40-time, 2.50 20-split (eighth-fastest over the last 10 years), 1.55 10-split, 7.03-second 3-Cone, 40.5” vertical jump (tied for the 10th-highest), 124” broad jump and 28 reps at 225 lbs. (tied for the 10th-most).

We will likely hear Koback’s name called early on Day 3 of the draft. With his track record of success and level of athletic testing, Koback would have been one of the most talked about prospects from the Combine. It’s gonna be a combination of Combine-invite bias and RB-needy franchises crossing their fingers that he drops that will eliminate his chance to be selected as high as the third round. That might be perceived as a stretch, but Koback’s résumé checks every box from RBs previously selected that high. Best of all, the fantasy chatter on Koback is nearly non-existent. Many in the industry don’t even know he exists. A final round dart could bring massive ROI and we should all have him located inside our top-12 RB sights in all dyno formats.

Jaquarii Roberson | WR | 6-foot-0 ⅞” | 182 lbs. | Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Let’s begin the breakdown on Jaquarii Roberson with the understanding that he will enter Week 1 of the NFL season at 24 years, one month and 12 days old. Roberson concluded his pre-professional career with two electric seasons in high school and two at Wake Forest. In spite of being one of the most efficient wideouts in college football the last two seasons, he became another on the list of considerable Combine snubs. Roberson took to the field with a vengeance at his Pro Day to prove his detractors wrong.

Jaquarii exhibited exceptional multi-sport versatility, first, by averaging 21.5 PPG, 8.9 RPG and 1.7 SPG on the hardcourt for Hertford County High School during his junior and senior years. He was recognized as the NCHSAA 2A Basketball Player of the Year following his junior year and collected 2A All-District honors after each of his last three seasons. Roberson (obviously) also dominated on the football field for the Bears, combining for 142 receptions, 2,850 yards and 34 TDs during his final two seasons. Roberson was selected to the NCHSAA 2A All-State and All-Conference First Teams in both seasons. He set the single-season school records for receptions (76), receiving yards (1,480) and receiving TDs (19).

Scouted as the 193rd-best WR from the 2017 class, Roberson only drew local interest from Wake Forest, NC State, East Carolina and Old Dominion on his recruiting trail. Fate sent Jaquarii to Winston-Salem to play out his college career under Dave Clawson. Roberson took a redshirt during his first year on campus. He then spent his redshirt freshman season mostly contributing on special teams – invaluable experience for a player sliding under the radar. Roberson released his bottled-up potential as a redshirt junior, showing off an efficiency that rivaled that of DeVonta Smith and Elijah Moore that season with his 3.94 YPRR – third-most in the nation behind Smith and Jaelon Darden.

Dating back to Roberson averaging 115.3 receiving YPG and 1.2 TDs over the last six games of the 2020 season, his role should not go unrecognized for the Deacs assembling a 14-6 record from that point until the end of the ‘21 season. He tied the program record with four consecutive 100-plus yard receiving games to end the ‘20 season. That run concluded with setting the Demon Deacon bowl game standard with three TDs at Wisconsin in the Duke's Mayo Bowl – an 8/131/3 line. He repeated his three TD result at Army in Week 8 last year, with both outings tying for the second-most single-game TDs in any game in school history. And his average of 102.9 YPG that season broke the program record.

Jaquarii ended up sharing the spotlight with ‘21 breakout star A.T. Perry, with the two combining with Sam Hartman to collect Wake’s first ever 8-0 record to begin a season. Roberson earned Second Team All-ACC selections for both of those seasons. His 1,078 receiving yards last season tied him for the third-most in Wake Forest History. It was a career that ended with the eighth-most career receiving yards (2,158) and tied for the eighth-most TDs (17). As you can see in the table above, Roberson found the type of coverage scheme success that’s quite unlike typical Power 5 (P5) wideouts drawing such inconspicuous draft attention. His collegiate accomplishments across from Cover 1, 3 and 4 form the perfect triumvirate for a WR prospect.

All eyes were on Roberson during his Wake Pro Day, where his wingspan was measured at just under 79”. He then proceeded to rip off a 4.43-second 40-time, 2.59-second 20-yard split, 4.13-second Pro Shuttle, 6.88-second 3-Cone, 40” vertical and 131” broad jump. The takeaway from the performance will draw more than enough attention to see Roberson land somewhere between the fourth-and-fifth rounds. We might fight a smidge of kickback from sharps in dyno formats. However, his advanced age could be just enough to set us up for a smash value in the final rounds of rookie drafts.

Master Teague III | RB | 5-foot-11 ¼” | 221 lbs. | Ohio State Buckeyes

Nobody should be caught off guard from Master Teague III testing out at his Ohio State Pro Day as one of the most impressive athletes in the entire ‘22 class. But the list of unawares essentially includes each of the NFL teams that failed to request his participation at the Combine. That’s just the cold-hard truth after he already provided verified results of a 4.50-second 40-time, 4.16 5-10-5 Shuttle and 38 ⅞” vertical jump at The Opening Finals as a 17-year-old. There’s no denying the fact that Teague was supplanted for featured reps by Trey Sermon (‘20), TreVeyon Henderson (‘21) and Mayan Williams (‘21). Just make sure you take a step back to look at those names. A very, very long list of impressive FBS starters would suffer the same fate under those conditions.

Teague erupted onto the prep scene as a junior for Blackman High School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He closed out his junior year rushing for 2,031 yards (184.6 YPG) and 24 TDs. Like Koback, Teague was knocked out early in the fourth game of his senior year but, in Master’s case, the injury was to his ankle. Teague sat out the following week, but returned the next week to post a 23/165/2 line before re-injuring the ankle and missing the rest of the season. Removing the numbers from the game where he was injured early, Teague was on pace to manufacture 2,091 rushing yards and 30 TDs that season.

Scouted as a top-10 RB from the 2018 class, Teague was a hot commodity among prospects. He drew offers from a collection of powerhouses that included Georgia, Clemson, Auburn, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and, of course, Ohio State. With J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber controlling the backfield, Teague’s true freshman season was served in a late-game capacity. Dobbins submitted a First Team All-American season in 2019, but Teague still finished seventh in the Big Ten with 789 rushing yards.

With Sermon early in the process of learning the playbook, Teague capitalized to average 95 rushing YPG and 1.5 TDs/game as the featured back over the first four weeks of the season. With Williams emerging as a literal bowling ball of a RB and OSU adding the top RB from the ‘21 class (Henderson), Teague never stood a chance to see featured work last season. It’s important to remember that Ryan Day does not employ the seniority approach to his backfield work that we see from other top programs. He inserts the guys into his backfield that prove to be the most effective both in practice and during the season.

It’s better to view Teague’s Ohio State career from the lens that the young man that’s on a path to earning his MBA in architecture ran for 1,764 yards, averaged 5.46 YPC and scored 17 TDs during his career – 0.59/game during his final three seasons. Between the ‘19-’20 seasons, Teague averaged nearly 4.0 yards/after contact and forced a solid broken tackle rate at around 25%.

When Teague had his opportunity to represent his athleticism at his OSU Pro Day, jaws hit the field. His physical measurements exceeded the 60th-percentile in height, weight, BMI – difficult to achieve at 5-foot-11 ¼”, arm length, wingspan and hand size. If not for the 2.69-second 20-split section of his 40-yard dash, his verified 4.47-second time could have threatened to cut below the 4.4 threshold… at 221 pounds! Master added a 1.64-second 10-yard split, 6.95-second 3-Cone and 36” vertical jump. Only three RBs from the last 10 seasons at the Combine exceeded Teague’s 131” broad jump and only seven bested his 27 reps at 225 lbs.

Teague does not appear to be a candidate for a receiving role in the NFL. While he never dropped a pass with his 9 ½” hands, he only averaged 2.8 receptions and 29.5 yards per season in Columbus. But you can take it to the bank that an NFL team will find room on their roster for this ripped specimen of a RB. Under the right conditions, Teague could emerge as an early-down, goal line specialist toward becoming a considerable asset in standard and 1/2-PPR scoring formats.

Kevin Brown | RB | 5-foot-8 ⅞” | 207 lbs. | Incarnate Word Cardinals

As we dip into the FCS and Division II ranks to uncover unheralded gems, let it be known that information is scarce in some areas. Kevin Brown is unlikely to be selected ahead of the second name on my list, but he is my top FCS sleeper and a mauling back that I feel could carve out a solid NFL career. It’s really a similar situation to all players sourcing from a level below the FBS; Brown, more than anything, needs a team to believe in him.

One of the biggest mysteries from Brown is simply finding his senior year production on the gridiron at Wando High School in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Even Brown’s own Incarnate Word profile only references the widely available numbers from his junior year when he assembled 139/674/13 rushing and 10/76/2 receiving lines. After some digging, it was discovered that Brown blew up to the tune of a 201/1789/20 line, averaging over 8.9 YPC during that senior season. While his teammate, Ortre Smith, went on to attend the University of South Carolina after receiving 19 scholarship offers, Brown had failed to live up to FBS standards in the classroom.

Brown chose to attend Highland Community College to sort out his grades. In 14 games over two seasons with the Scotties, Brown combined to rush 181 times for 1,177 yards (6.5 YPC), eight TDs and a 24/91/2 receiving line. His play impressed the right people that led to landing him on the Incarnate Word roster. Brown led all divisions of play with his 10.5 YPC when he fabricated a 74/775/5 line during his first season with the Cardinals. He stepped up the following year to provide his team with 956 rushing yards (6.4 YPC) and 12 TDs to earn Second Team FCS All-American recognition for the second-consecutive season. Mashing all four of his collegiate seasons together, Brown averaged 7.2 YPC during his career. In addition, Brown tracked down 52 receptions, 517 yards and four TDs in two seasons with Incarnate Word.

His HC at Wando, Jimmy Noonan, described the results from Brown’s Incarnate Word career well: “The thing he needed to do was prove he could run between the tackles and be physical and durable enough to last, and he’s done that.” Brown has never missed a game during his high school and collegiate career, spanning six seasons and 745 total rushing attempts. But those durability concerns were made obsolete after Brown hit the scales at his Pro Day at 207 lbs. That weight is an implication that he had added 32 lbs. of muscle to the 5-foot-9 frame Noonan coached at Wando.

Brown really impressed at his Pro Day while testing with his 63rd-percentile BMI physique. First off, if not for seeing a slight drop in velocity on his 10-yard split (1.56-seconds), Brown could have threatened with a sub-4.4 second 40-time. He still recorded a 4.45-second time, boosted by a 2.56-second 20-yard split. Brown furthered his prospect star with a 6.93-second 3-Cone, 37 ½” vertical and 122” broad jump. He may have taken a roundabout path to the draft, but Brown has provided NFL teams, as well as dyno aficionados, with everything they could want to invest draft capital between the fifth-and-seventh rounds on Day 3.

Dareke Young | WR | 6-foot-2 | 224 lbs. | Lenoir–Rhyne Bears

Anyone have any interest in the top playmaker out of Division II ball that, dare I say, packs a collection of similarities to Deebo Samuel? For the record, that is not a comp to Deebo’s entirely unique skill-set. But Darek Young could be the third-or-fourth skill position name called from sub-FBS play during the draft after Christian Watson and Pierre Strong Jr. Young put together a modest prep career while assisting the top-200 nationally ranked Middle Creek High School in Apex, North Carolina to a 28-2 record as a junior and senior. During those final two seasons, he accounted for a combined 58/838/8 receiving line.

Even with a budding star at their disposal, the Mustangs’ Air Raid-style offense distributed 30-plus receptions between four and 15-plus among seven different receivers. In any case, Young failed to draw much FBS or FCS attention during the recruiting process. And much of that reason can be attributed to his showing at The Opening Regionals after his junior year. During the event, Young recorded a 4.97-second 40-time, 4.30-second Short Shuttle and 32 ¼” vertical jump. With his sights set on a degree in engineering physics, Young enrolled at Lenoir–Rhyne University.

Young spent most of his true freshman season devoted to special teams. That was until Dareke The Freak hit a growth spurt that would result in him growing three inches and packing on 50 lbs. of unadulterated muscle. He hit the field his true sophomore season in style, sporting his new weaponry inside the Bears’ Delaware Wing-T offense. A scheme heavily built around the run, with plenty of fake handoffs between the QB, RBs and Wingbacks that uses a distinctive setup featuring angled blocking, cross-blocks and a ton of double teams. While Young wouldn’t see a lot of looks in the passing game, he would have the opportunity to show off his blocking chops.

During that 2018 season, Young accounted for 7/122/2 receiving and 38/318/4 rushing lines. Dareke carried that success over to the following season, erupting – inside a Wing-T, that’s no less than the truth – for 25 receptions, 515 yards, eight TDs, a 49/335/4 rushing line and added 142 yards on seven kickoff returns. The word hit the street of Young’s intimidating, effective presence and eventually drew the attention of NFL scouts. All of that momentum was in danger of crashing back down to earth when, just prior to a fall season that was canceled due to COVID, Young partially tore the PCL in one of his knees during practice. A team of doctors led by James Andrews worked with Young’s rehabilitation schedule to avoid surgery.

When Lenoir-Rhyne set up their four-game schedule during that following spring, Dareke returned for the final two games. Young collected a 9/166/1 line in the second of those two games, the South Atlantic Coverance (SAC) Championship against Tusculum. Those 166 receiving yards are the 10th-most in Bears’ history.

Another injury – the details of which are very mysteriously missing from the record – forced Young to miss six games last season. He returned for his team’s appearance in the FCS playoffs against Bowie State. Despite only playing in five games, Young still collected Second Team All-SAC honors – likely making up for his omission from the ‘20 team. Young would go on to be the only Division II prospect to earn an invite to the ‘22 East-West Shrine Bowl.

Plenty of NFL representatives were on hand to watch Dareke at his Lenoir-Rhyne Pro Day. The man-child simply measured with a 79 ⅝” wingspan (⅞” longer than Christian Watson) and with 10 ⅛” hand over mitts (same as Watson) that’s only been surpassed by one Combine WR from the last 10 seasons (Devon Williams). Need more? You got it. Young blazed a trail to a 4.45-second 40-time, 2.53 20-yard split and 1.54 10-yard. He added a 6.84-second 3-Cone, 37” vertical, 135” broad jump (one inch behind Watson’s 10-year Combine) and 22 reps at 225 lbs. It’s the type of showing that twice landed Young on Bruce Feldman’s Freak List.

Young’s Lenoir-Rhyne HC, Mike Jacobs, is on the record for a combined comp on him between David Boston, who he played with at OSU, and Dustin Keller, a player he coached at Purdue. There’s no doubt that Dareke will land in the NFL as a developmental project. But his raw, untapped potential will most definitely not be lacking for suitors. If you can find the room to stash Young away in deeper formats, the potential ROI would be well worth the sacrifice.

Tyshaun James | WR | 6-foot-2 ¼” | 214 lbs. | Central Connecticut Blue Devils

It’s surprising that Tyshaun James has failed to draw more press during the draft evaluation process. That’s simply par for the course for this kid. James played his high school ball for Middletown in Connecticut. But he did so as a dangerous dual-threat QB. Tyshaun accounted for 3,026 passing yards, 24 TDs vs. 11 INTs and also added another 2,511 yards and 36 TDs on the ground during his last two years with the Blue Dragons. Both campaigns ended with CIAC Class L All-Conference selections. His junior year earned him CIAC Second Team All-Connecticut and his senior performance brought home First Team All-Connecticut honors.

Scouts reportedly struggled gauging James’ future position, resulting in none of the major scouting outlets putting a profile together. He still landed offers from Fordham and Central Connecticut. James decided his future would be on the field at Central Connecticut State University. Tyshaun followed the typical path of a true freshman on special teams and entering games late. James was switched to wideout prior to his true sophomore season due to a string of injuries. His 20/218/4 line is actually quite impressive considering his level of experience at the position.

James’ career took off the following season. He powered the Blue Devils to an NEC Championship over Duquesne and to an appearance in the FCS playoffs. His 48 receptions were the sixth-most in the FCS, his 978 yards were the second-most and his nine TDs were the second-most. James’ topped the NEC with 14 total TDs as a true junior. And he was selected First Team All-NEC for his efforts. Perhaps most impressive of all, James played the season with a torn labrum.

CCSU had their ‘20 schedule canceled due to the COVID pandemic. With Jake Dolegala moving on to the NFL, the Blue Devils shifted to featuring their ground game and a two-QB setup last season. They closed out the year with a 4-7 record. James’ career ended with a 45/674/5 receiving line that can essentially be considered a setback in his career. An NFL future would hinge on Tyshaun blowing up at his Pro Day.

For a kid packing around 214 lbs. of solid muscle, it was never even a question of “if” James would impress NFL scouts. He was measured with a 77 ⅞” wingspan to go along with a 27.3 BMI calculation. James ran a 40-time of 4.49-seconds, a 2.53 20-yard split and 1.54 10-split. He added a 7.07-second 3-Cone, 37 ½” vertical, 132” broad jump and ripped 22 reps at 225 lbs. It was official, James set his Pro Day ablaze.

It’s possible that James could have transferred out of CCSU to a program with superior talent at QB, but there’s no guarantee he would have improved on his numbers while learning a new playbook. It’s also possible that James goes undrafted, ends up signing as a priority free agent. However, if he does hear his name called late on Day 3, it will be an easy decision to scoop him up as a deep stash in rookie drafts. If not, Tyshaun James is a name to stash away for future use if his name happens to flash across our screens.
