James Proche DraftJames Proché has done more than enough to cement his legacy as an SMU Mustang. He hails from DeSoto, and his local ties are part of what drew him to SMU. He committed to SMU prior to his senior season in 2014, and never wavered despite Power Five offers from TCU, Louisville, Maryland and Wake Forest. He also spurned Houston for SMU. Given the context of where all those programs stood in 2014, for him to choose SMU was a significant victory for then-head coach June Jones. The three-star prospect stuck around through the hiring of Chad Morris, and blossomed into an NFL prospect.

Proché is what recruiting is all about. He wasn’t a four-star or five-star who drew tons of headlines. Instead, he was a mid-level recruit who worked incredibly hard and was guided by some phenomenal coaching. Take a step back and look at some of the brilliant offensive minds that coached him. Between Chad Morris, Joe Craddock, Justin Stepp, Rhett Lashlee and Sonny Dykes, it’s impressive.

Proché’s remarkable career at SMU was nothing short of spectacular, especially by the end of it. In his redshirt freshman year, he caught 57 balls for 709 yards and six touchdowns. The next year, 2017, was his last year as the “other” threat opposite now-Denver Bronco standout Courtland Sutton and now-Washington Redskin Trey Quinn. Proché had 40 catches for 816 yards and six touchdowns that year.
Going into 2018, without Sutton and Quinn, there were a lot of questions ...

Another mock draft has him headed to Jacksonville in round 5. I do think someone will grab him in 5th or 6th round and I can't imagine him not being drafted but who knows? Will be interesting to see if he sticks with the team that drafts him or bounces around before finding a home.

CBS site rating the top 750 players who have declared for the draft has Proche at # 128 followed by Rodney Clemons at 222, Delontae Scott at 415, Patrick Nelson at 458 and Xavier Jones at 511. Have to wonder whether Rodney will get drafted and how many of our guys will get Free Agent offers. Could SMU have another Mr Irrelevant in this year's draft?

On NFL.com's "Move the Sticks" podcast, Lance ZIerlein indicated that Proche slipped on draft boards because of medical concerns.
