10 college stars who are clones of this years draftees

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Oregon QB Justin Herbert
    Pro: New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (No. 3 overall pick)

    Neither Herbert nor Darnold are going to make scouts drool with any particular physical tool, but both may turn out to be the most well-rounded, prototypically sized quarterback prospects in their respective classes (the 6-foot-6 Herbert has a couple of inches on Darnold). Herbert, like Darnold, was a three-sport athlete in high school. They have nearly identical completion percentages in college. Herbert hasn't yet suffered the same turnover troubles that Darnold encountered at USC, but he hasn't had the chance to play a full season yet at Oregon.

    Washington RB Myles Gaskin
    Pro: New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (No. 31 overall pick)

    Gaskin is a smart, low-to-the-ground back who led the Huskies with 24 touchdowns during his junior season. Like Michel did during his time at Georgia, the Washington native uses great vision to help set up his runs and moves that make defenders look silly. Michel's impact in the passing game faded during his final college season, but both backs have proved they're capable of keeping linebackers honest by catching a couple of dozen passes out of the backfield on an annual basis.

    Stanford RB Bryce Love
    Pro: New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (No. 2 overall pick)

    Barkley's explosive power made him hard to bring to the ground and gave Penn State plenty of options on how to deploy him against Big Ten defenses. Out on the West Coast, Love was running through and around Pac-12 defenses at an even more productive pace. Barkley may have a few pounds on Love, but both run with a tenacity that inevitably leads to big plays and jaw-dropping highlight reels.

    Dester Lawrence DL Clemson
    Pro: Vita Vea. Tampa Bay (12th overall pick)

    This is more of a mountainous duo than the Oliver-Payne combination. Lawrence is listed at 340 pounds, just a little shy of the 347-pound Vea. That kind of tonnage isn't supposed to move as quickly as these two guys are able to get off the line. Vea and Lawrence blew up plays before they had a chance to get started last season. Lawrence has the benefit this year of playing alongside a couple of other potential first-round picks who will force opposing offensive lines to make some tough decisions. ... r-mayfield
