Every year we see a handful of prospects drastically improve their NFL Draft stock due to huge bowl game performances. This year, no player’s stock was helped more by a huge postseason than Georgia’s Sony Michel, according to a report by NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah.
Jeremiah polled a handful of NFL executives, asking which player helped himself the most in bowl season, with three of the five executives naming Michel as the biggest winner. One called Michel a ‘three-down back,’ while another took things a step further by saying that Michel ‘separated himself from [Nick] Chubb.’
In his two College Football Playoff games, Michel totaled 320 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns. His performance against Oklahoma was particularly monstrous, as he ran for 181 yards and three touchdowns on just 11 attempts, while also adding four catches for 41 yards and another touchdown.
At the moment, Michel is likely to go in round two or three, though he could continue to improve his stock with a big NFL Combine or Georgia Pro Day.
