New, 9 comments

When will the draft-eligible Horns come off the board when the draft begins on April 30?

In a Monday conference call, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock gave his opinion on several of the former Texas Longhorns expected to hear their names called in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Defensive tackle Malcom Brown

Mayock also called Brown a "low-risk pick." Possessing excellent quickness and a high motor is surely enduring Brown to draft analysts like Mayock and will be to NFL teams in several months.

Linebacker Jordan Hicks

Hicks helped his stock with a strong week at the Senior Bowl and could continue to help his cause by testing well at the NFL Combine this week, but his injury history hangs heavy over the draft process.

Cornerback Quandre Diggs

Of course, there was plenty of talk that Diggs could move to safety as a senior and while that didn't happen, Ian Boyd of Inside Texas and SB Nation think that the Angleton product could make a natural transition:

Diggs probably isn't as fast as current Seahawks star Earl Thomas, but he's of a similar size and has a similar disposition.

Maybe one team decides to think outside the box and falls in love with the potential for Diggs to play a number of roles in the defensive secondary?
