Kamren Curl was a bright spot for a bad Arkansas football team. Positives were hard to come by for a team that has finished 2-10 the past two seasons. Curl was a three star recruit out of Muskogee High School and was recruited by Washington State, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Baylor, TCU, Houston, and Texas Tech before choosing Arkansas to continue his education. Positives for Curl are easy to find once you review the film, work still needs to be done but he makes for an intriguing prospect.
Over the past three seasons, Curl has been a mainstay in the Arkansas lineup at either the cornerback or the safety position. During the 2019 season. Curl racked up 76 tackles, two sacks, and four tackles for loss. Curl also picked off two passes this season and was a bright spot in otherwise difficult season for the Razorbacks. In Curl’s sophomore season, he held down the strong safety spot and amassed 53 tackles on the season. In 2017, Curl started all 12 games at cornerbacks and 46 tackles and 8 pass break ups.
Weaknesses: Curl has played for some bad teams at Arkansas. Kamren could have probably used another year in college, but with uncertainty at Arkansas, he likely made the correct decision to enter the draft. Curl must improve in the pass coverage area, and being able to high point the football, a bit better.
Strengths: Curl does not shy away from contact and is an aggressive tackler and has done an impressive job of playing the run. Curl has managed to avoid the injury bug and was consistently in the Arkansas starting lineup.
My draft projection for Curl is 7th round pick to free agent. He has a chance to improve his stock at his pro day and the combine, but it is a fairly deep draft for the secondary this year. Only time will tell.
