The Way We Hear It: 7 underrated NFL Draft prospects Who are the most underrated NFL Draft prospects for 2017? By HUB ARKUSH - email@example.comApril 12, 2017 Who are the most underrated NFL Draft prospects for 2017?Derek Barnett, Edge Rusher, Tennessee: At 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds, Barnett has the size to line up as right end in a 40 front and ideal size to be an outside pass rushing linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He has excellent strength and natural power for his size, as quick and explosive a first step as we’ve seen in a while and Barnett is an exceptional athlete who has developed a full repertoire of pass rush moves and counter moves.Ohio State linebacker Raekwon McMillan: McMillan is another highly rated player who we don’t think is being rated near as highly as he should be in most circles. He is a top playmaker with great instincts and feel for the game that is always around the football. Other than Alabama’s Reuben Foster, there isn’t a better true inside or MIKE linebacker prospect in the draft. [Damian Dovarganes]USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster: We think so much of wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster at Pro Football Weekly that we rank him tied for the best prospect at his position along with Clemson’s Mike Williams and Western Michigan’s Corey Davis on all of the tangibles and then give Smith-Schuster the edge due to his obviously unbridled love of the game. He is a true junior who dominated at USC from the day he showed up on campus, starting 12 of 13 games as a true freshman and all 27 since. Smith-Schuster is extremely physical and plays the game very much like a faster and more athletic version of Anquan Boldin.Troy OL Antonio Garcia: Prior to the Senior Bowl, a lot of knowledgeable football people weren’t even familiar with Antonio Garcia, but following his week in Mobile and the NFL Combine everyone knows who he is now. Garcia is a four-year starter at left tackle at Troy who at 6-6 with 33 3/8 inch arms is everything you’re looking for at the position. This kid is a great athlete whose only obvious limitation is his relatively thin frame and lack of power. Garcia struggled to stay at 290 or 300 in college but, if an NFL workout regimen and top nutritionist can put another 10 to 20 pounds of muscle on him, we could be talking about a perennial All Pro.Temple OL Dion Dawkins: What we love about Dawkins is he was a three-year starter at left tackle at Temple and, unlike a lot of guys who play on the left side in college, he has the natural size, athleticism and feet to stay there in the NFL. His size of 6-4, 314 is just about perfect for a left tackle in the NFL and Dawkins has 35-inch arms that will make him very difficult for speed rushers to handle if he gets his hands on them. The other great thing about Dawkins, which we talk about all the time with offensive linemen, is while all pro football players have to be tough, you want the guys up front to be mean or at least play nasty. Dawkins does.Florida Atlantic DE Trey Hendrickson: Hendrickson was unknown, for the most part, until he tore it up at this year’s East-West Shrine Game. The bottom line is this kid can rush the passer with 23 sacks in his last 23 games in college and there isn’t a team in the NFL that isn’t looking for more pass rush. Hendrickson flew under the radar for the most part because Florida Atlantic isn’t exactly a national power and, while he did have five sacks as a sophomore, he didn’t become a full-time starter until his junior year.
