Trying to figure out what is “for sure” in the NFL is like men trying to understand women.
When I start thinking I know how NFL teams think, I remember that Todd Doxzon played in the NFL and he was not someone I ever envisioned playing in the NFL. And I was a big Doxzon fan.

I'm very bad at projecting ISU guys to the NFL. I thought we'd be watching guys like Kamari Cotton Moya, Ray Lima and Brian Peavy running around out there on Sundays, but I was way off on that. I think the 3 guys in speculation will all make a roster, but I'm highly doubting any of them get their name called on draft day.

Bailey might get drafted otherwise nobody.
Think the opposite. I think Bailey is trending down after a tough pro day.

Kene and Soehner meanwhile have some late round intrigue. Soehner is considered one of the best blocking TE’s in the draft. Could be seen as a Lee Smith type (5th rounder in 2011)

Kene meanwhile has been getting buzz ever since his pro day with that blazing 40. Might have a shot in the late frames.

Mostly, because NFL teams get weird about picking RB’s nowadays.
I read somewhere he’d be projected RB 3 in this draft behind Harris and Etienne. (But a far ahead number 3 from RB4)

Both RB’s are projected late 1st, early 2nd I think.


I think most realistically Breece would be a solid 2nd rounder.

Not that long ago I didn’t think Kene would sniff the NFL, but with that 40 time, I could see someone take a late round flyer on him.

I think the big knock on Breece that could prevent him from being an early pick is he’s probably going to have a TON of carries by the end of his junior year, and the NFL has this weird thing with running back value decreasing as carries increase.
It’s why I hope J Brock flourishes this year and give him more rest.

Breece Halls carries don’t count as wear and tear because nobody touches him!
We should also remember Jonathan Taylor was still a second round pick and packed up nearly 2,000 carries.

Breece will hardly have half of that if he leaves after this year.

That being said, if Breece has another year like last year and comes back for his senior year, he might need drug tested.
