NFL Draft 2016: Could Kenyan Drake go in Round 1?

Kenyan Drake spent his collegiate career under Nick Saban as a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Now, the versatile running back will be looking to move on to the NFL for further success.

Drake will learn where he begin his professional career later this month at the 2016 NFL Draft.

How long will he have to wait to hear his name called?

The common belief is that Drake will be selected at some point during Day 2. However, in a recent report from MMQB.com, Peter King said that at least one NFL evaluator believes Drake is worthy of a first-round selection.

That is certainly a surprise.

Drake lacks ideal size and has no use as a pass protector. While he can make plays, there are plenty of major flaws in his game that would make the first-round selection a major head scratcher.
