The Jordan (NFL Draft) Rules: Former QB making sure HBCU prospects get exposure

Former HBCU QB-turned-NFL Draft analyst Jordan Reid is making a name for himself online.

OT Alex Taylor, South Carolina State

– He’ll probably end up going 6-7th or seventh round.
– A lot of excitement about him but he probably needs to gain some weight

Elijah Bell

WR Elijah Bell, North Carolina A&T

– Surprised he didn’t get postseason love, as far as some all-star games and invites
– Been battling some injuries
– There are some deficiencies he’ll have to overcome
– Speed has been questioned
– Hasn’t had the chance to show speed because he was so good going up-and-under
– Likely UDFA, but if he gets the opportunity, he can stick on a roster

WR Kyle Anthony, Howard University

– Very long, lanky receiver 
– Crisp route runner
– Will get UDFA opportunity

Dawonya Tucker Prairie View

RB Dawyona Tucker, Prairie View

— Similar to Tarik Cohen, small and shifty
— Special teams may be his niche
— Has to overcome size questions

LB Solomon Muhammad, Alcorn State

— Special teams will be key
— Undersized
— Will have to earn defensive reps

DB Daryus Skinner, Winston-Salem State

— Numbers don’t lie (22 career ints.)
— Forget the competition, he’s a ballhawk
— Team captain, leader
— Should get a shot as UDFA

QB Deondre Francois, Hampton

— Had a solid year at Hampton
— He’s going to get a shot at somebody’s camp

QB Ryan Stanley, FAMU

— Likely UDFA
— Wouldn’t be surprised if he sticks on the practice squad
