Only six Miami Hurricanes participated in 2021 Pro Day on Monday. That number could increase by 10 in 2022. Eight Miami players are entering their final season of eligibility in 2021. The extra season granted by the NCAA to 2020-21 athletes has added multiple layers of years to the players on the Miami roster.

Five scholarship players on the Hurricanes roster are listed as redshirt seniors and three as seniors. Within that, offensive tackle Jarrid Williams is entering his seventh season of college football, quarterback D’Eriq King and defensive end Zach McCloud their sixth and several Miami players their fifth season.

Miami Hurricanes graduate transfers, defensive end DeAndre Johnson from Tennessee and wide receiver Charleston Rambo from Oklahoma are listed as redshirt seniors on the official Miami roster and entering their fifth seasons in college. Wide receiver Mike Harley has not taken a redshirt but is also a fifth-year senior.

Other fifth-year seniors on the Miami roster are safety Amari Carter, guard Navaughn Donaldson and defensive tackle Jon Ford. Donaldson could apply for a redshirt season after playing only two games in 2020 and choose to return to Miami for the 2022 season without the Hurricanes counting his scholarship.

Rambo has two seasons of eligibility remaining and could choose to return to Miami in 2022. Everyone else listed above except Donaldson is a near-lock to participate in Pro Day in 2022. The list will grow about 12 months from now with several players who have eligibility remaining past 2021 who enter the 2022 NFL Draft,

The list of Miami Hurricanes players who will be draft-eligible in 2022 with eligibility remaining beyond the 2021 season is extensive. The list of players who would participate in Pro Day would not include everyone. Any player who has completed three years in college has the option of entering the NFL Draft.

With an added year of eligibility granted by the NCAA, that would include juniors, redshirt sophomores and players who have played three seasons of college football at the conclusion of the 2021 season but would be classified as third-year sophomores with two seasons of eligibility remaining.

The names to watch with eligibility remaining for Miami beyond the 2021 season that are most likely to enter the 2022 NFL Draft are safety Bubba Bolden, running back Cam’Ron Harris, left tackle Zion Nelson and tight end Will Mallory who is poised for a breakout season with Brevin Jordan leaving for the 2021 NFL Draft.

Next. Jaelan Phillips steals Miami Hurricanes Pro Day. dark

The performances by defensive ends Jaelan Phillips, Greg Rousseau and Quincy Roche and Jordan at Pro Day on Monday were exciting. Phillips ran an insane 4.58 40-yard dash for a player who is 6’5, 266 pounds. The five players mentioned above could have impressive Pro Days in 2022 and King will also be worth watching.
