Mike Bercovici, Arizona State

Projection: 7th-UDFA

Chances are that Bercovici goes undrafted, but I’m a firm believer that the former Sun Devil deserves an opportunity to prove his worth in the NFL. Not only did he start his career at Arizona State as the underdog, but he ended it in the same position. Still, during his senior season, Bercovici did a great job of moving the offense, using his impressive arm and good decision making to put up impressive numbers.

During his 2015 season, he compiled 3,860 yards, 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions through the air while completing 60 percent of his passes. He also added six touchdowns on the ground. Bercovici led the Sun Devils to a 6-7 campaign that ended with a last-minute letdown against the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl.

For the Redskins, he’d at least be worth a camp invite and potential seventh-round flier. He was thrust into a starting role after taking over for the injured Taylor Kelly as a junior, and emerged as a capable starter with some NFL potential. Now, he has the opportunity to take the next step in his career and prove his arm is worthy of the big leagues.
