Mel Kiper Jr. Football analyst
The biggest riser on my new Big Board for the 2020 NFL draft -- coming next week -- is likely to be Iowa defensive end A.J. Epenesa, who was a force against Minnesota with 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. After a slow start this season, the junior has four sacks in his last three games. At 6-foot-5, 280 pounds, Epenesa's versatility stands out. He brought edge and inside pressure against the Gophers, and he could be used at defensive tackle in the NFL. The Hawkeyes play Illinois on Saturday.
