2019 Picks #121-125
NFL Draft Scout
#121 Jets - Trevon Wesco, FB, West Virginia
OUTLOOK: A rare athletic specimen for a man of his size, while he lacks a true position, Wesco is a rare triple threat who can block, catch and run. Opposing defenders are definitely hoping that the “Wesco Wagon” doesn’t roll through their neighborhood because he is a load to brig down. He has gained about 50 pounds of muscle over the last few years, making him part offensive lineman, part tight end, while lining up at fullback, h-back, out wide or in the slot. His athleticism and physicality, to go along with his blocking and soft hands, should make it easy for an NFL team to find ways to use him.
#122 Steelers - Benny Snell Jr., RB, Kentucky
OUTLOOK: The Wildcats all-time leading rusher has been a workhorse back during his time in Lexington and possesses excellent size, while flashing a knack for making defenders miss. He finished as the school’s all-time leading rusher with 3,873 yards. Possesses strong bloodlines as his father Benny Sr., who played for the Ravens and his great uncle, Matt Snell was part of the Jets Super Bowl III team. His durability, along with his proven ability to carry the workload makes him a potential starter at the next level. Get used to hearing the catchphrase, “Snell Yeah!”
#123 Ravens - Ben Powers, OG, Oklahoma
OUTLOOK: A transfer from Butler Community College (where he started at right tackle), Powers had zero scholarship offers coming out of high school. He has been dominant since his arrival at Norman. Did not allow a single sack during his senior campaign on his way to being named a consensus All-American, winning the Joe Moore Award, given to best offensive line in college football and was an Outland Trophy semifinalist. He has started at both guard positions and plays with a nasty mean streak in the trenches that just irks the opposition.
#124 Seahawks - Phil Haynes, OG, Wake Forest
OUTLOOK: One of the most heart-touching stories you’ll hear about leading up to the draft, Haynes grew up with a disabled mother and was aided by a Raleigh man who was inspired by the movie “The Blind Side” and paid for his private-school tuition. He arrived to Winston-Salem as a 250-pound defensive end and departs as a 310-pound (17% body fat) NFL guard prospect.
#125 Bengals - Renell Wren, DT, Arizona State
OUTLOOK: Quite frankly, Wren is a better athlete than football player at this point, only emerging as a starter for the Sun Devils as a redshirt senior. That may not mean much on some campuses but Tempe has hardly proven to be a hotbed of talent for NFL defensive linemen with just one player earning a top 100 selection (Will Sutton in 2014) since Terrell Suggs was drafted 10th in 2003. Wren's upside warrants early round consideration but he's a legitimate project who’ll require patience.
