Where the Cougars stand in the latest NFL mock drafts

NCAA Football: Stanford at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The 2018 NFL Draft is officially one month away. That means several Cougs will soon find out where they’ll get a shot to make it at the next level. If you believe the mock drafters, it seems three Cougs have a good shot at being drafted, but recently a fourth name popped up on a mock draft list.

Luke Falk has solidified his place as the top Coug in mock drafts. Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has Falk going to the Minnesota Vikings with the No. 62 pick in the second round. That is one of, if not the, highest placements we’ve seen Falk recently. Falk goes in the fourth round of the latest NFL Rough Draft mock draft.

Hercules Mata’afa keeps popping up in the middle rounds. He landed in the fourth round twice here, going at No. 115 to Chicago and No. 136 to New England. Because of course he did.

Cole Madison has consistently seen his name pop up in mock drafts. Here, he goes in round six to the Raiders and in round five to Dallas.

Those three players have consistently made every seven-round mock draft I’ve seen. They are typically the only three Cougs incluced, but not this week. NFL Rough Draft projected Cody O’Connell to go in the seventh round to Atlanta.

The Cougars have only had multiple players drafted in the same year twice since 2006. If mock drafts are to be trusted, that figures to change this year.
