CHAPEL HILL, NC – NOVEMBER 25: Bradley Chubb /

13. Connor Williams, OT, Texas

Texas as a team is off to a slow start in the Tom Herman era, but this is still a team with NFL-level talent. Connor Williams is the most talented of the bunch and someone who could hear his name called very early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

He’s a smooth athlete who features quick feet and overall movement skills. Williams projects as a strong pass protector who can keep defenders off the edge.

14. Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State

Bradley Chubb is a solidly build defensive end who can both rush the passer and play the run. He has developed a nice array of pass rush moves that helps him keep the offensive line off balance. Chubb’s overall explosiveness is often questioned, but he continues to get the job done.

15. James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State

The 2018 NFL Draft has several intriguing wide receiver prospects. James Washington might be the most polarizing of that group. He’s a big-play threat who constantly wins in contested situations. However, he doesn’t jump off the screen as someone with game-breaking speed.

Washington wins thanks to his toughness, leaping ability and strong hands. He is someone who will out battle defensive backs for the ball. Unfairly, his 40-time will be an important factor on how high he is drafted.

16. Vita Vea, DT, Washington

Vita Vea is a massive individual who dominates the line of scrimmage. He uses his size to occupy blockers and stuff the run. However, Vea makes a lot of plays on the ball carrier which makes him more than a space eater.

He features an explosive first step which helps him initiate contact, penetrate the pocket and make plays away from his frame. This is someone who can also create pressure on the quarterback by using his strength to push the pocket.
