Scouting the AAC - Memphis

Tony Pauline

Draft Analyst Writer

Prospects from the Memphis program have been highlighted by skill players the past two drafts. Running backs Darrell Henderson and Tony Pollard were third and fourth-round choices respectively last April, while Anthony Miller was a second-round pick in 2018. Offense will lead the way for Memphis next year, at least according to my board.

Tight end Joey Magnifico has the computer numbers to be a big-time tight end prospect, and he has flashed skill the past two seasons. He displays the speed to stretch the seam and has enough strength to hold his own as a blocker.

Magnifico must take his game to the next level if he’s to meet the draft expectations I’ve placed on him, which are significantly higher than those of scouts.

Austin Hall is a feisty strong safety who may get looks at linebacker in certain one-gap schemes.

Keep an eye on running back Patrick Taylor. He struggled for touches last season with Henderson and Pollard ahead of him on the depth chart, but he has the measurables and ability to make move up draft boards.
