Every year, teams look to the NFL Draft to try and find that next prospect who can develop into a future Pro Bowler. While that may be easier said than done, let's take a look at three 2019 NFL Draft prospects who could be selected to the Pro Bowl by their second season.
3. Darnell Savage, University of Maryland
Safety Darnell Savage is the complete package. Not only does Savage possess the speed and athleticism to play well in coverage, at 5' 11" and 198 pounds, but he also has the build to be a very effective tackler at the next level as well. Look for Savage to make an immediate impact in the NFL, racking up both tackles and interceptions on his way to the Pro Bowl.
2. Josh Jacobs, Alabama Crimson Tide
Josh Jacobs could be a three-down back in the NFL, after showcasing his ability as a runner along with this pass-catching ability at Alabama. So much so, that Jacobs has the best odds to be the first back off the board in Thursday's NFL Draft. As it's not uncommon to see backs make an immediate impact on their new team, it's quite possible that Jacobs gets selected to a Pro Bowl in his first two seasons.
1. Quinnen Williams, Alabama Crimson Tide
The defensive tackle at out Alabama has been a consensus Top 5 pick since he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. Quinnen Williams has the rare ability to rush the passer from the interior of the defensive line and scouts say he could be the biggest game-wrecker in this year's draft. With Williams projected for double-digit sacks, no matter where he gets drafted, that should put him in a great position to be a Pro Bowler in year one or two.
