Jamie Newman is the oldest guy of this half-dozen, but that doesn’t make him any less intriguing as an NFL Draft prospect. After four years with the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, the redshirt senior opted to play his final season of college ball for the College Football Playoff contender Georgia Bulldogs. Could he be the difference maker this Georgia offense is craving?

Admittedly, the SEC East is a huge step up from the ACC Atlantic, but there are a lot of traits NFL scouts have to love out of Newman. Yes, he can make plays with his legs, but he’s two best attributes are deep-ball accuracy and tight-window throwing. What his final college season will be like will go a long way in his draft grade, but he’s some variation of Jalen Hurts and Cam Newton.

At 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, Newman has the ideal frame to star at the next level. In Newman’s first full year as the Wake Forest starter in 2019, he completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 2,868 yards, 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also had 180 carries for 574 yards and six additional trips to pay dirt. Keep in mind that he was playing with Wake Forest talent.

Newman doesn’t have to win a national title, an SEC title or even an SEC East title to won over NFL scouts. If his style of play translates well in Todd Monken’s Georgia offense, Newman will be a top-20 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. If that’s the case, he’d be going to a pretty good team, as opposed to NFL cannon fodder like the two guys ahead of him. It will help his Pro Bowl prospects.
