When the NFL Draft rolls out next week after Crimson and Gray Game/Easter weekend we know for sure one Coug will hear their name called. There is no question Andre Dillard will be drafted, the only question is how high. The bigger question is how many other Cougs will hear their names called.

It seems likely quarterback Gardner Minshew will be drafted. And if the latest CBS Sports mock draft is correct, James Williams could join Minshew and Dillard as 2019 draft picks.

In his seven-round mock draft, R.J. White has Dillard coming off the board at No. 18 to the Minnesota Vikings. Judging by various mock drafts, Dillard seems likely to come off the board between No. 10 and No. 20. Most have him landing in that range, and unless everyone is significantly off, he should be a lock for the first round.

White does not appear to be as high as others are on Minshew. Some mocks have him coming off in the mid rounds, but White projects him as a seventh-round pick to New England. If it happens, Minshew is definitely beating out Tom Brady.

Instead, White is actually higher on Williams. While most mock drafts have Williams going undrafted, White has Williams coming off the board in the fifth round to the Philadelphia Eagles.
