UTSA vs. Texas State has a few 2021 NFL Draft implications
There may not be many big name prospects in the game between the 0-0 UTSA Roadrunners and the 0-1 Texas State Bobcats, but the NFL may be looking out for some potential special teams aces and rotational players in this game. Even though smaller schools will be featured in UTSA vs. Texas State, there will be 2021 NFL Draft implications on the line.
Texas State is coming off a 31-24 loss to a talented SMU team, but the chance to play a game and get battle-tested could give them the edge over a fresh UTSA team. Texas State is currently the favorite, but the potential firepower on the UTSA offense makes this an interesting matchup.
UTSA is bringing a talented, albeit underachieving quarterback in Lowell Narcisse. A former 4-star recruit who originally went to LSU, Narcisse hasn’t been particularly productive during his college career, but he’s a big-armed passer with good size and a lot of potential. It’s unlikely that he leaves school early, but NFL teams could overlook the poor production in favor of some flashy traits.
On the Texas State side, the underclassman duo of running backs Calvin Hill and Brock Sturges made waves when they rushed for a collective 195 yards in the matchup against SMU. If anyone is going to tilt the game in favor of the Bobcats, it’s going to be those two.
With all the major introductions out of the way, it’s time to dig into the lesser known seniors who will be worth keeping an eye on in this matchup. These players aren’t stars, but they’re going to have the eyes of evaluators.
