Josh leaps tall buildings in a single bound. No cape required.
Kendrick Green will be a 2nd or 3rd rounder. His 4th/5th round predictions are about to go out the window. Yes, he's going to destroy the pro day, but his film is also very good. NFL media just doesn't know that much about him yet.

The rest of the pro day guys are all great athletes: Hobbs, Eifler, BheBhe. They'll definitely have NFL measurables, just not sure if/where they will be drafted. Seem like guys that teams will take flyers on in the late rounds.
The Athletic ($$) has published their annual big draft guide . Illinois prospect info:

Kendrick Green: 3rd round grade, #4 ranked center in the class, out of 12. Project him as a potential starter at any of the 3 interior line positions, best fit in a zone-based offense

Nate Hobbs: 7th round / PFA grade, #40 ranked CB out of 54. Needs to improve coverage techniques, but is a plus athlete and plus run-defender. Project him as a back-end roster candidate with upside.

Josh Imatorbhebhe: PFA Grade, #46 ranked WR out of 61. Springy athlete that can make incredible catches, but inconsistent with route running technique and hands.

Milo Eifler: PFA (preferred Free Agent) Grade, #30 ranked LB out of 35. Physical traits could make him a special teams stand-out, but questionable instincts limit his upside.
Any team that drafts KG will be getting a stud!

I agree with the Eifler assessment. He can be a special team ace for a team. If Bhebhe can get the right WR coach, he can develop and work on the route running.
