The Texas Longhorns have been a prominent topic of discussion following the NFL Combine, with several players standing out in various categories. Notably, T’Vondre Sweat impressed with his 40-yard dash time of 5.27 at over 360 pounds, Byron Murphy II showcased his physique and ran a 4.87 40-yard dash, and Xavier Worthy set a combine record for the fastest 40-yard dash ever.

Worthy and fellow receiver Adonai Mitchell, initially considered borderline first-round picks, are now expected to join Murphy II in the first round following their impressive combine performances. In a post-NFL Combine mock draft, Marcus Mosher of 33RD Team projected three Longhorns to be selected in the opening round.

Murphy was predicted to end up with the Las Vegas Raiders after a standout career with the Longhorns, demonstrating his impact in both running and passing situations. Worthy, with his exceptional speed, was projected to go No. 30 overall to the Baltimore Ravens, while Mitchell was slated to go two picks later at No. 32 to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Mosher highlighted Worthy’s record-breaking 4.21-second 40-yard dash, making him an attractive prospect for the Ravens, who are always seeking more speed. As for Mitchell, he was seen as the ideal weapon for the Chiefs, who recently won a Super Bowl but could benefit from strengthening their receiving corps.

Looking into the second round, Mosher projected Ja’Tavion Sanders to go No. 36 to the Washington Commanders, where he would team up with a top quarterback in the draft class. Additionally, T’Vondre Sweat and running back Johnathon Brooks rounded out the bottom of the second round, with Sweat going No. 49 to the Bengals and Brooks at No. 59 to the Houston Texans.

If these projections materialize, it would be a significant boost for the Texas program, showcasing the talent and success of their players in the NFL Draft. It also reflects positively on head coach Steve Sarkisian and the program’s overall trajectory.
