2018 Purdue Boilermakers prospect primer

Below are the notable Purdue prospects eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft. Purdue has been mired in a downswing since the start of the decade, their 3 wins last season were tied for the most the program has seen since 2012. The school has not enjoyed a winning season since 2011. But there are some promising glimmers of hope present for quality football being played this year for the Boilermakers.

Offense

Quarterback David Blough – 6010, 200 – Redshirt Junior

Blough will miss his top target from last season, WR Deangelo Yancey. And while a number of his passing statistics are undesirable (a 6.5 YPA average and 21 interceptions, most notably) he has brought a competency to the passing attack. Purdue hadn’t seen a 3,000 yard passer in seven years and you have to trace all the way back to Curtis Painter in 2007 to find a higher overall yardage figure.

Defense

Defensive Lineman Gelen Robinson – 6010, 280 – Senior

Robinson comes from an impressive family lineage: his father Glenn was the 1st overall selection in the 1994 NBA Draft and an All-American while at Purdue. Robinson has been a majority starter during the past several seasons and although he’s often played out of position on the line (he’s listed as a Nose Guard on the depth chart) he finds success as a disruption player.
