Posted On August 20, 2021
NFL players, scouts and coaches will be heading to the combine in Indianapolis this week, as the league begins its annual rookie draft.
The draft, which takes place Tuesday, May 28 at 7 p.m., will feature the first of three days of the draft, with the final round scheduled to occur Thursday.
Here are some of the notable prospects who will be in attendance, according to the league:Former Oklahoma quarterback Dak Prescott, who is ranked as the No. 4 quarterback overall and No. 11 overall prospect in the 2019 NFL draft.
He is ranked No. 13 among NFL prospects.
The No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Notre Dame linebacker Myles Jack.
The Notre Dame product is the first Notre Dame player to report for the draft since 2013, when the Fighting Irish won the national championship in his senior season.
He also is the fifth player in school history to sign a college contract, joining linebacker Derrick Johnson, offensive lineman David Price, receiver Devin Funchess and defensive tackle Jonathan Martin.
Jack, a 6-foot-3, 255-pounder who will play defensive end in the NFL, said he’s excited about the opportunity to play in front of a national audience.
He said he will focus on his preparation, focusing on the nuances of what the coaches and teammates expect of him during the draft process.
“It’s really exciting,” he said.
“The only thing that’s disappointing is that I had to go through the whole process and it took a little bit longer than I thought it would.”
I’ve got a lot of time to get in shape, get a little more experience with the coaches, but I feel like I’m ready for the game.
“The 6-3 Jack, who was Notre Dame’s offensive line leader in 2017 and is considered one of the best linemen in the country, will have to prove he can make a strong showing at the combine.
His workout will be televised live on ESPN and streamed on DraftBreakdown.com.”
The combine is the ultimate showcase of what you can do in the game,” Jack said.”
It’s not just about what you do on the field, it’s about what’s behind the scenes, what you’re doing off the field and how you’re working.
It’s a great time to show the world you have what it takes to play football.
It will be a lot more exciting for me than the NFL combine.
Jack was a three-year starter at Notre Dame and is the No, 7 overall selection in the 2017 NFL draft by the Dallas Cowboys. “
I think this is going to be a great thing for our son and he’s going to get an opportunity to meet some great football players, which I’m excited about,” Ryan said.
