More NFL Draft Announcements for Mizzou Football, Theo Wease Jr. Returns

Mizzou Links for Friday, January 5

It was another day of NFL Draft announcements for the Mizzou Football program as the early stages of the offseason continues.

The first one was at the defensive line position with Nyles Gaddy going pro.

While only spending one season with the Tigers, Gaddy was a key part to Missouri’s defensive success this season. He was also named SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week in Mizzou’s Week 2 victory over Middle Tennessee.

In the secondary, Mizzou is losing arguably the best cornerback in the country with the departure of Kris Abrams-Draine.

From first team All-SEC honors to being named on All-American lists, Abrams-Draine had an incredibly decorated career with Mizzou Football. Best of luck, KAD.

While Cody Schrader and Realus George Jr. have exhausted their college eligibility, both will be declaring for the NFL Draft.

Meanwhile .... guess who’s back? Back again? Theo Wease Jr. is back. Tell a friend.

Need to keep track of who’s staying and who’s going for Mizzou Football next season? Josh Matejka has you covered with the eligibility tracker.

And from the Under Armour Next All-American Game — Rivals’ John Garcia Jr. named Williams Nwaneri one of the top performers.

“After an up-and-down week of practices, the bright lights brought out the best in the Missouri signee. Nwaneri was a dominant force off the edge throughout the game, winning with power and speed on routine. He was credited with multiple stops, including one for loss, and a pass breakup in the win. The tackle for loss came against the only five-star passer in attendance, DJ Lagway, and he nearly notched a sack after a head-turning, dip-and-rip move to take the passer off his spot as a teammate finished the job.”

You love to see it.
