2022 NFL Draft: The Best of the Rest of the Mountain West Prospects By School
Cornerbacks Corey Hightower and Tony Collier and safety Patrick Peek all found modest successes as part of the defensive backfield in Rocky Long’s 3-3-5 defense, but all three might be maxed out athletically. Collier did have a 39-inch vertical at the Lobos’ pro day, however, while Hightower went for 35 1/2, so never say never.

Kyle Jarvis might have the same concern at tight end, measuring at 6-3 and 239 pounds at New Mexico’s pro day. He has reliable hands, though, and the fact he had just 11 catches in 2021 was more symptomatic of offensive issues elsewhere than it was a reflection of his capabilities.
Andrew Shelley impressed as a redshirt freshman in 2018, connecting on 7-of-8 field goal tries, but he was a little shakier after that and made 70% of his attempts after that. He also ceded kickoff duties to other players throughout his college career, so he’s probably a long shot to hang around.
