As the NFL Draft winds down, it’s no surprise that Trysten Hill has been the only Knight to be drafted. With that being said, there are still a few players from the #UCFast offense that we could see get picked up in a late round or as an undrafted free agent.
Dredrick Snelson, WR
Dredrick Snelson is an interesting case because he declared a year early but there has been absolutely no buzz surrounding him. The only news I’ve heard about him is that he partook in the Bucs’ local pre-draft workout.
Despite not being invited to the NFL Combine like he expected, he ran a 4.42 at UCF’s pro day. In three seasons, the wide out racked up 106 receptions for 1,519 yards with 15 touchdowns. UCF fan’s know this kid is an absolute baller but it now becomes a question of if declaring early was the wrong move.
Dredrick Snelson will be taking his abilities to the NFL next season. You can check out all of the early draft entrants at the link below. https://t.co/tn4XEipCJY pic.twitter.com/AiI1hoOzgR— PFF Draft (@PFF_College) January 10, 2019
Wyatt Miller, OT
Wyatt Miller has been one of the most reliable, consistent players UCF has had. With 47 career starts, he’s an experienced, proven leader that could be a great asset for any team that gives him an opportunity. Miller also attended the Bucs pre-draft workout with a good amount of former Knights.
Projected: 7th Round-UDFA
Michael Colubiale, TE
From walk-on to sixth year senior star, you have to love Colubiale’s story. 33 catches for 516 yards with 4 touchdowns isn’t a bad career for someone who didn’t have his first catch until his redshirt junior season.
His 4.55 40-time at UCF’s pro day would have been the second fastest amongst tight ends at the NFL Combine. He’s worked out with the Jags and I think you can expect him to get a camp invite.
Taj McGowan, RB
Let me start by saying that I’ve always been a huge Taj McGowan fan. He’s never been the main guy but he’s also never complained and got the job done when his number was called. 1,123 rushing yards with 19 touchdowns is a very solid career but his lack of versatility as a pass catcher may hurt him. In four seasons, he’s only caught 16 passes for 95 yards.
One thing that will help him is the 4.40 40-time he ran at UCF’s pro day. That would have been the fastest 40-time for a running back at the NFL Combine. Taj also worked out with the Bucs.
