    Since I know this team. I'll post those players I think could make an impact.

    Mike White QB. Kiper has him as 2nd round talent ,will be interesting to see his Sr. Bowl and combine word. He has solid arm and can make all the throws. Had new coaching staff last year and put up solid numbers despite his head coach and OL being horrible.

    Deon Yelder TE WKU would like to see Miami draft this guy or get as FA. Came out of no where last year. Big body catches the ball well. Is playing in (NFLPA Collegiate Bowl) and getting some nice press about his willingness to learn and improvement in blocking. He is a little soft, but could easily get stronger.

    Chris Johnson DL. Getting press and invited to bowl game, but I don't see it. Was not dominate this year, but defense was pretty horrible.

    Joey Iyiegbuniwe LB. This kid can play. On a pretty bad defense he stood out. He is coming out a year early to go into the draft. Not sure that i the smartest move for him, but again the coaching staff is horrible. Iyiegbuniwe (6'1/230) was named All-Conference USA first team by the coaches following the 2017 season. He earned the honor on the strength of career-best campaign, registering 117 tackles (11.5 for loss), two sacks and two forced fumbles across 13 games played. He's started all 26 contests for the Hilltoppers over the past two seasons. Just where he'll land in the draft -- if he does land -- will depend on his work in the evaluating process. He's going to need to show off wheels in testing, something that might be beyond his skill set
