 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Joshua Kelley ran for more than 100 yards at the Senior Bowl. Darnay Holmes ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds at the NFL combine. Devin Asiasi bench-pressed 225 pounds 16 times at the combine. For a slew of less-heralded UCLA players hoping to be selected in the NFL draft this month, their fates will largely be a tale of the tape. Their college tape. The cancellation of the Bruins' annual pro day amid the novel coronavirus outbreak has left NFL scouts with little to go on when assessing potential besides what players had already shown in college. "A lot of the decisions on players that didn't go to the combine will be based solely on the film that they put on and we had scouts from every single team in the NFL at practice at the fall," UCLA coach Chip Kelly said on a teleconference Thursday, "so their write-ups on practice and what-not I think is what the NFL teams will rely on for those guys."

Kelley, Holmes, Asiasi and kicker J.J. Molson all displayed their skills and had their measurements taken at the combine, allowing teams to gauge their potential in person and conduct medical evaluations that can alleviate any concerns about lingering injuries or health issues. But UCLA teammates Boss Tagaloa, Krys Barnes and Josh Woods head into the draft as bigger unknowns in NFL circles because they did not receive combine invitations or participate in a pro day. "I think it hurts those guys a little bit," Kelly said. "It happened to everybody. Unfortunately, this pandemic hit and there's nothing you can do about it." - Los Angeles Times
