Three players from Rutgers go in the latest mock of the NFL draft from CBSSports, showing an uptick in interest for several Scarlet Knights’ standouts.
And shockingly, despite a strong performance at the NFL Combine and the recent Rutgers Pro Day, running back Isaih Pacheco was not one of the trio of Scarlet Knights to go in the mock draft.
The seven-round mock draft from Chris Trapasso has all three Rutgers selections going in the seventh round within a span of 13 selections:
No. 259 (Kansas City Chiefs): Bo Melton (wide receiver)
Other than the omission of Pacheco, the other surprise from the Trapasso mock draft is that Melton fell as far as the seventh round. Mel Kiper’s most recent mock draft, for instance, has Melton going in the third round.
Most mock drafts have Melton, the team’s leading receiver who had a strong Senior Bowl and NFL combine, going in the fourth or fifth round.
