Mississippi State senior S Jonathan Abram accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Abram (6'0/215) has been one of the most consistent parts of the Mississippi State defense, and he has seen his stock -- which was already fairly high -- rise in the process. He's a solid run defender who also has been able to help against the deep ball. If Abram performs well at the Senior Bowl and tests well at the combine, he could be among the first safeties drafted next spring. Nov 21 - 4:12 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Mississippi State senior S Jonathan Abram as one of the players who saw his stock rise after his performance on Saturday against Arkansas.

Abram (6'0/215) was awesome in the 52-6 shellacking of the Razorbacks, picking up 12 tackles, and 3.5 of those were for a loss. He also had two hurries, showing the ability to blitz while also stabilizing in the run game. Abram is also solid in coverage, and that ability makes him likely to be one of the first safeties to come off the board come 2019.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang lists Mississippi State senior S Jonathan Abram as one the players that impressed him the most in Week 8.

It was in a losing effort, but Abram was impressive, and at times, looked like the best player on the field. The 6-foot, 210-pound defender registered 10 tackles, with five of them solo. "While unable to come up with the two interceptions which helped toolsy LSU true sophomore Grant Delpit also stand out in this contest, Abraham’s agility and speed in coverage and physicality in run support helped limit LSU to just 239 total yards of offense, 21 less than the visiting Bulldogs," Rang writes. Abram has a real chance to be one of the first safeties off the board come this spring.

Mississippi State senior S Johnathan Abram was ejected from Saturday's game at Kansas State for targeting.

As a result of the ejection Abram (6'0/210) will miss the first half of the Bulldogs' game against Louisiana Sept. 15. That's a big hit for Mississippi State to take, as Abram is considered by scouts to be one of the top draft-eligible safeties in college football. Senior Chris Rayford is likely to get the start next week as a result of Abram's ejection.

ESPN's Todd McShay lists Mississippi State senior S Jonathan Abram as the top safety eligible for the 2019 draft.

McShay notes that both Abram and USC's Marvel Tell are potential first-round picks on his board. A former JUCO player, Abram (6'0/210) has developed into one of the best safeties in the country, ans has gotten anything from third-round grades to first-round grades from analysts before the season starts. He's considered a high-floor player because he doesn't make mental mistakes, and there's a high-ceiling because of his ability to make reads and decent athleticism.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Mississippi State senior S Johnathan Abram a third-round grade.

Abram (6'0/210) recorded 71 tackles and forced two fumbles in 12 games during his first year with Mississippi State after transferring from Georgia. Pauline writes, "[Abram] does a terrific job with his reads, always puts himself in a position to make positive plays and rarely makes mental mistakes." His biggest weakness is a lack of speed according to Pauline. If Pauline's 4.6 forty-yard dash prediction is right, than it would be hard to imagine Abram beating out his third round grade.

Georgia freshman S Johnathan Abram will transfer.

Abram skipped Georgia’s bowl game for what then-interim head coach Bryan McClendon described as "personal issues." Recruited to school by Jeremy Pruitt, Abram walked by the media the day Mark Richt was fired and said, unprompted: "If the media wants to know anything, keep Pruitt." Pruitt left for Alabama, which may explain Abram's discontent. He had 25 tackles this season.
