Projected Round: 3-4

Actually, Villanova has a football team. Let’s get that out of the way first. Kpassagnon is the only player from the FCS to make this list. Tanoh may be from a small school, but he’s anything but small. In fact, Tanoh is a little different. He’s the studious business student that also happens to be one of the best players in 30 years at Villanova.

By the same token, Tanoh is on the radar for NFL prospects. Last season he led the league with 19 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks. Tanoh even added a touchdown to his repertoire of many accomplishments. Scouts and general managers have visited the tiny FCS school to see him in person.

There’s not even a doubt anymore that Tanoh will get drafted anymore.  In addition, he’s also a student of the game. Tanoh loves to watch film for hours at a time. If his play gets close to his academic abilities, the accounting classes may help with the big paychecks that will come eventually.
