NFL analysts continue to evaluate prospects with the draft a little under a month away.
At this point, we all know who the top prospects are. LSU QB Joe Burrow and Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa are garnering most of the attention along with the rest of the projected first-round picks.
But each and every year, there’s plenty of prospects that fly under the radar and end up surpassing expectations. One notable NFL analyst has taken a shot at naming his most “slept on” prospects this year.
The most “slept on” prospects are the ones that deserve more attention and recognition, but fail to do so for unknown reasons. This year, NFL analyst Bucky Brooks believes Missouri DT Jordan Elliot and Kentucky all-purpose player Lynn Bowden aren’t receiving the hype they deserve:

Any college football fan knows who Bowden is. The dual-threat QB took the college football world by storm last season, putting up video-game numbers in a breakout season with the Wildcats.
It’s unclear what Bowden’s role will be in the NFL. But today’s modernized offenses prefer do-it-all kind of players like the former Kentucky QB. Bowden’s versatility is an attractive skill for most NFL teams.
Out of all the prospects listed above, it’ll be interesting to see which one shines above the rest in the NFL.
