      Potential.
      Moss, Huntley, Anae, Fotu, Blackmon, and more.

      This is why I’m optimistic about the future. The recruiting is getting better but the formula is the same, you have to find guys with potential and develop these guys for the next level.

      Goodness, Mitch was a 2 star on the way to an all-American. Samson, Devontae and Fotu were other 2 stars. Along with a bunch of 3 stars that will play in the NFL. Garett was easy to see but so many others have developed beyond what others thought. A very good class.

        Good group but I don’t see a “bunch” of NFL players. Moss and Anae are locks to be drafted. Fotu and Blackmon are fringe, will probably get camp invites. Blackmon could play his way into getting drafted if he had a big year at Safety. Huntley is a long shot but probably not going to happen.

        Still a pretty good year though.

          Athlon thinks pretty highly of both Blackmon and Fotu, in their top 25 PAC12 2020 draft prospects they rate Johnson #3 (behind Herbert and Shenault), Fotu #6, Moss #15, Blackmon #18, Anae #19.

            They also have Khalil Tate at #10. The GM that drafts Tate gets fired.

              Yeah that one’s a headscratcher, he’s not getting drafted.

          Fotu is a lock to be sure. A DT that size and can move like that will be drafted guaranteed. I’m not so sure on Blackmon, but he will get camp invites.

            Blackmon had a rough year last year. Got beat a bunch but he’s a great tackler. I think the move to safety will be the right move for him. Hope he kills it and becomes Utahs next great DB in the League.
