These 2021 NFL Draft prospects will see their stock rise by leaving the MAC
Another massive domino in college football has landed as the Mid-American Conference (MAC) has canceled all of their fall sports, joining the FCS to do so. Most of the Power Five conferences, however, seem to have their logistics in order to play football this fall and are even releasing their schedules. This has caused quite the strife for 2021 NFL Draft prospects, however.
A massive fiasco caused by the current lingering pandemic, many players are now being given less than a month to find a new team via the transfer portal, hope to get an immediate eligibility waiver, learn a new system, adapt to a new locker room, then play successfully on the field. This, however, could also benefit the better players in the MAC as a switch to Power Five competition full-time could give their draft stock a massive boost.
We have already seen former Central Michigan tight end Tony Poljan make the move from the MAC to Power Five when he landed with the University of Virginia last month. The floodgates are open, and there will be a mass exodus from the MAC at any minute.
Here are five 2021 NFL Draft prospects who could see their stock rise should they decide to enter the transfer portal and head to a Power Five program.
