Scouting the AAC - Central Florida

UCF has done it on the field and in NFL war rooms. The program posted consecutive undefeated regular seasons in 2017 and 2018 and had six players selected in the top 100 selections the past three drafts, the latter of which should continue next April.

The strength of Central Florida’s next-level prospects can be found in its underclassmen, and it starts with receiver Gabe Davis.

A tall, surehanded wideout, Davis displays big-play potential besides being a terrific red-zone threat. He shows great concentration and the ability to come away with the contested grab, and he’s sneaky fast.

When Davis finally enters the draft, much of his grade will be determined by his 40 time, but I feel confident in saying he grades as a second-round pick.

Richie Grant is explosive from the safety position, and he’s a hard hitter who forces the action. He shows a closing burst to the ball and really stands out as a run defender.

Cornerback Brandon Moore could have more upside than his two teammates and could make a dash towards Round 1, a la former teammate Mike Hughes in 2018. He’s a physical corner with excellent ball skills and the ability to make plays facing the action or with his back to the ball.

Moore needs to polish his game, but I believe he’s another that fits somewhere in the top 90.
