The Warriors came up empty in this weekend’s draft, but people in the know insist UH has five highly rated NFL prospects for next year.
> Trayvon Henderson: UH has produced a lot of good safeties, and Henderson should be added to that list. He’s athletic, feisty,tough, smart and instinctive.
> Diocemy Saint Juste: I’ve covered UH football for a long time, and Saint Juste is one of the Warriors’ top running backs. His vision, first-step quickness, second-level burst and knack for reading blocks are Pumphrey-esque. He also has room for growth as a receiver.
> Dejon Allen: The Warriors’ best offensive lineman isn’t even playing at his best position. While he’s excelling as a blind-side tackle, his NFL future is at guard or center.
> Metuisela ‘Unga: All of sideline observer did a collective uh-oh when 6-foot-5, 240-pound ‘Unga caught a pass in space and was heading right for a safety during a spring practice. ‘Unga is the ideal tight end who can block and run deep patterns. He draws comparisons to Itula Mili and Jerry Scanlan.
> Meffy Koloamatangi: A lot of 4-3 ends usually are asked to become 3-4 outside linebackers at the next level. Koloamatangi, who is deceptively strong, can be a 4-3 or 3-4 end at the next level. When he’s healthy, he’s as good a run stopper as pass rusher.
