In this episode of Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast, the Czar of the Playbook, Emory Hunt of Football Gameplan, gives us 20+ small-school skill prospects worth tracking in NFL camps this spring and summer.
Some believe I dive deep for NFL Draft prospects, but Emory Hunt explores the Marianas Trench. Hunt covers FCS schools as a play-by-play analyst for ESPN. His site and YouTube channel, Football Gameplan, are must-follows if you want to learn more about football and enjoy an original perspective from a former college running back who is a student of the game.
This week, I have the pleasure of having Hunt unpack his thoughts on 20+ skill players who haven’t earned coverage from national media, but their talent deserves the NFL’s consideration:
- Quarterbacks: Amir Hall, Jacob Dolegala, Taryn Christion, Brad Mayes, Grant Kraemer, Devlin Hodges, and Jajuan Lawson.
- Running Backs: Xavier Turner, Ryan Fulse, Ra’Quanne Dickens, and Dom Bragalone.
- Wide Receivers: Denzel Knight, Nehari Crawford, Davion Davis, and Joe Walker.
- Tight Ends: Charles Scarff, Isaiah Searight, Vincent Hobbs, and Ari Werts.
Hunt and I also discuss how we take the “small-school factor” into consideration when examining a player’s NFL viability, the biases that “NFL Draft Stock” creates, and at the end of the show, Hunt reveals two of his favorite skill players from the “big schools.”
