After missing all of the 2019 season due to an ACL injury shortly before the season began, Alabama LB Dylan Moses took to Instagram to announce that he will be returning to the Crimson Tide for the 2020 season. Many NFL Draft analysts expected that Moses would declare for the NFL Draft, despite the injury. However, it’s clear that Moses has put a premium on his education, with eyes set for the 2021 NFL Draft, where he’s expected to be a top pick.
Despite the season-ending injury, Dylan Moses still garnered some first round consideration in the 2020 NFL Draft. His return to school could propel Moses to a top fifteen pick.
Oklahoma LB Kenneth Murray or Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons now lead the pack of linebackers into the 2020 NFL Draft. In terms of the 2021 NFL Draft, the class is wide open. Chazz Surratt, a young linebacker that covered to linebacker from quarterback this season has been excellent. In addition to Surratt, Penn State LB Micah Parsons is expected to be drafted very high in 2021.
