Coming into the season, many projected Albert Okwuegbunam would have a breakout junior campaign after posting back-to-back seasons with at least 415 yards and 6 touchdowns. While that never really materialized, as he finished with just 306 receiving yards, there's still a lot to like about Okwuegbunam's game.

There aren't many players who can run a 4.49 40-yard dash while lugging a 6-foot-5, 258-pound frame. With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Okwuegbunam's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.
