Darnay Holmes 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Darnay Holmes is a 5 star recruit who landed on a bad team but still shined all on his own. Although he is the biggest player, it didn’t stop him from getting into fierce 1v1 battles with larger WRs where he would win those battles more often than not. He is extremely talented but his toughness is what keeps him in the fight. It’s hard not to be impressed with the kid and he could be a steal in the middle rounds.

Measureables: 5’10 200 LBs
