NT Breiden Fehoko

Breiden Fehoko has a ton of energy and played a respectable role on the defensive interior for LSU, the reigning national champions. If there was a preseason, he may very well have been able to nab one of those end of the roster spots.

Fehoko’s 2018 season was probably his best, but he had a respectable college career in general with four sacks, 71 tackles, and 16.5 tackles for loss. He might just be my favorite developmental prospect that won’t make the roster.

DT Cortez Broughton

This one may be a little bit surprising! Cortez Broughton was the LA Chargers’ seventh-round pick last year and has shown some good signs with in season play and in training camp. However, Linval Joseph was added to the team and Damion Square was re-signed. While Broughton could make the roster, I think he needs a very impressive training camp to do so.

If he doesn’t make the roster, he seems like one of the players the Chargers would protect from other teams. He’s still a great emergency depth piece to have, even if the defensive line is developing a bit past him at this point.

LB Asmar Bilal

There’s not a better duo in the league than GM Tom Telesco and Notre Dame prospects! Bilal was a great senior leader at Notre Dame. He has solid coverage skills with decent run defense. His draft dreams were hurt by not being invited to the combine and Notre Dame’s pro day being canceled by COVID.

Bilal is a freak athlete. It’s unfortunate he didn’t get to show off his athleticism at a pro day. Otherwise, he may have very well snuck into the sixth or seventh round. He’s worth keeping around in the pipeline with his overall body of work.
