With the 95th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select McTelvin Agim, DT from Arkansas.
Round 3- Pick 31
Combine results: 40 Yard Dash- 4.98
Bench press- 27 Reps
Agim (pronounced UH-geem) is a 6’3″ 309 lb D-lineman who was moved to defensive tackle for his senior season from defensive end. He started 40 games for the Arkansas Razorbacks including all 12 games in both his Junior and Senior years. Agim was selected to the SEC Academic team during the fall of 2017, 2018, and 2019. The five-star prospect enrolled a semester early and played in all 13 games his Freshman season with the Hogs, starting the final five. Agim started 11 of 12 games as a Sophomore (37 tackles, 7.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks, three pass break ups, and two forces fumbles). As a Junior he led Arkansas with 10 tackles for loss in 12 starts, racking up 45 stops, 4.5 sacks, and three faces fumbles. During his Senior season, Agim topped the Hogs with 8.5 tackles for loss and five sacks, posting 39 total tackles and forcing a fumble in 12 starts. He can be a good presence on the D-Line for the Broncos with a long NFL career ahead of him.
With the 216 pick in the 202 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins select Kamren Curl, DB from Arkansas.
Round 7 – Pick 2
Combine Results: 40 Yard-Dash- 4.6
Bench Press- 24 reps
Vertical Jump- 34.5 inches
Broad Jump 125.0 inches
Curl is a 6’1″ 206 lbs Defensive back from the University of Arkansas.
Curl was a three year starter at Arkansas with adequate size per NFL scouts, but lacks speed and position characteristics. Curl has experience in man coverage but is better suited as a split-safety, where he can cover more with his eyes than with his athleticism and speed. He led Arkansas with 2 interceptions in 2019 while posting 76 stops, four for a loss, two sacks, two pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. As a Sophomore he started the team’s first 11 games (53 tackles, five pass break ups). As a Freshman, Curl played cornerback for the Razorbacks, filling in as an injury replacement, recording 46 tackles and 8 pass breakups on that year. Curl is a smooth and even backpedaled that can read combinations and capable of tackling near the line. Although he does lack true recovery speed and it is limited who he could cover, Curl is still an intelligent defensive back and will add depth to the Redskins secondary as a solid backup.

After redshirting as a Freshman, Smith appeared in 41 career games with 34 starts. His career included 75 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and 5 sacks. As a Senior he added 3 quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. Should give the Chargers some needed depth on the d-line for years to come.

Harrell came to Arkansas as a grad-transfer from Kansas in 2018. He played WR for the Jayhawks but was turned into Tight-end for the Hogs. Harrell played in 22 career games for the Hogs, recording 7 catches for 94 yards and a TD in his 2 year career on the Hill. Harrell made the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor roll 12 during his time in Lawrence. Although his time in college was not highlighted with spectacular plays Harrell will give the 49ers good depth and needed help blocking at the DE position.
Linebacker De’Jon Harris has signed with the New England Patriots.
Combine Results: 40 yard dash- 4.69
Bench Press- 18 reps
Vertical Jump- 33.0 inches
Broad Jump- 111.0 inches

Harris started in 36 of 48 games played. He leaves Arkansas with 371 career tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles. He offers very little third-down value per NFL analysts, and will need to shine on Special Teams to solidify a spot as a two-down backup at inside linebacker. Harris is most definitely a full-grown man when it comes to the physical attributes with frame and strength in the box. He plays with his eyes past blockers and does a nice job playing around or through them.

3 Cone Drill- 7.3 seconds
20 Yard Shuttle- 4.24 seconds
Flex tight end prospect with good yardage production and who managed to finish as Arkansas’ All-time touchdown leader for tight ends still awaits his chance to prove himself in the NFL. His talent is fraud-worthy, but his flameout and departure from Arkansas at the end of the year is truly hurting his chances. His getting suspended three times at Arkansas and leaving the team in November is by far his biggest weakness to any team. Anyone that picks him up will need to coach him on and off the field, but if it can be done they would have a great TE to add to their team. Best of Luck C.J., your time will come.
