Scouting the AAC - Tulane

Tulane has consistently put players into the late rounds of the draft since 2014, and most have found their way onto active rosters or prospect squads. I expect this to continue in 2020.

The Green Wave has five draftable players if you combine the total on my board with the thoughts of scouts.

Jalen McClesky is someone I graded as a late-round prospect from his days at Oklahoma State. The senior sat on the sidelines last season before transferring to Tulane, where I expect him to start. He’s a quick, slippery receiver who will do well at the next level as a slot receiver and return specialist.

Thakarius Keyes offers next-level size and athleticism and has flashed ability. Keyes needs to improve the consistency of his play on the field, but I could see him ending up in a postseason classic such as the Shrine Game or Senior Bowl with a big campaign in 2019.

A lot of scouts really like running back Darius Bradwell.

He’s a bruising runner who goes over 235 pounds and dishes out punishment on the inside. Bradwell has outstanding measurables and comes with great upside.
