Burrow has record day in LSU's win (1:51)

LSU QB Joe Burrow sets a career high and program record with six touchdown passes in a game as he throws for 398 yards passing. (1:51)

You've definitely heard of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. You've probably heard of his teammate, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. They might even go Nos. 1 and 2 in the 2020 NFL draft. But where do NFL scouts separate themselves? Filling out their rosters with quality prospects on Days 2 on 3.

Using Pro Football Focus grades -- we grade and chart every play of every game of the college football season -- we looked for prospects currently flying under the radar who deserve more attention heading into April's draft. These are players who our advanced staff and draft analysts love more than the general consensus.

Here are 10 such prospects who excel on limited snaps or in particular roles, come from smaller schools or have played at a higher level than their stats would suggest.

Note: All statistics and rankings are from PFF.


Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

Class: Senior | HT: 6-foot-4 | WT: 216

Stat to know: 1,103: Burrow's passing yards on throws 10-plus yards downfield, most in the FBS

Why we like him: Burrow's stats so far this season are far from fool's gold. He has earned them by being the most impressive quarterback in the country when throwing the football down the field. He's completing 76.2% of his pass attempts at 10-plus yards, which is far and away the best mark in the country.

Game to watch: Nov. 9 at Alabama
