The 2020 Clemson football draft class has several interesting prospects. Here’s a look at S K’Von Wallace’s NFL Draft profile.
There was a total of seven Clemson football players invited to the 2020 NFL Combine.
Among those seven was S K’Von Wallace.
Wallace, who was an integral part of helping Clemson win two National Championships, will be looking to take the step to the next level and that all begins with a successful spring.
Here’s a look at Wallace’s NFL Draft profile.
2020 NFL Draft Profile: K’Von Wallace
Draft Projection: 4-6 rounder
Wallace is an interesting prospect and there’s plenty of differing opinions as to where he’ll land in the draft.
Wallace is considered a top-10 player at safety and that would likely put him somewhere in the fifth round. He could move up draft boards and find himself solidly in the fourth round, though, with a good spring and could even take himself into later rounds with a poor spring performance.
He has skills, such as athleticism and solid coverage ability, that make him desirable. But there are also questions about his game at the next level. Wallace was a part of the back-end of a defense that gave up several busts. He is also smaller in terms of stature than many of the other safeties in the draft.
In my opinion, Wallace will be drafted but it will likely be in the late-fourth round at best and the early-sixth round at worst. As teams look to take chances in these later rounds, they’ll certainly want the opportunity to draft a guy with skill and promise like Wallace, and that will potentially give him a chance to land with a successful franchise and develop into a solid defensive back in the league.
