Which WSU Cougars could hear their names called next spring?

The 2019 NFL Draft is complete with Gardner Minshew and Andre Dillard both getting the call. Now they, and a host of other Cougs, will attempt to build their careers at the next level. While we need to wait another year for the next wave of Cougs to be drafted, we don’t have to wait for 2020 NFL mock drafts.

Old reliable NFLDraftSite.com is back again with a very early mock draft. This time, they have a full seven-round mock draft ready to go. The Cougs, however, only have one player in the projection. Jalen Thompson is projected as a third-round pick.

It should be noted that last year, NFLDraftSite projected Thompson as a first round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Andre Dillard was also projected as a second or third round pick. A lot can, and will, change in the next 12 months.

Rookie Camps

In addition to Peyton Pelluer getting a rookie camp tryout with the Cleveland Browns, it appears these guys will also get a chance to impress a professional team:
