Deion Sanders believes Colorado has four first-round talents in the 2025 NFL Draft

Deion Sanders has expressed high hopes for Colorado’s prospects in the upcoming NFL Draft. The Hall-of-Famer confidently predicts his team could have as many as four players taken in the first round. Among those he highlighted are his son, quarterback Shedeur Sanders, and two-way star Travis Hunter. Sanders has been vocal about his belief in their top-notch talent and potential.

“We certainly have two guys that could go in the top five in the draft (Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter), but I think we’ll have two more that will sneak into the first round,” Sanders said during Big 12 Media Days, via ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura. That statement shows Sanders’ confidence not only in his son and Hunter, but also in the depth of talent on his team.

Shedeur Sanders, who was under the tutelage of his father, is considered a promising quarterback with great potential. His development and performance have been closely watched, and his progress suggests he could be a high-level draft pick. Travis Hunter, known for his versatility as a two-way player, has also drawn a lot of attention. Hunter’s ability to impact the game on both sides of the ball makes him a unique and valuable player.

In addition to Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter, Deion Sanders also mentioned edge rusher BJ Green. The Arizona State transfer is coming off an impressive season in which he recorded 39 tackles and six sacks. His performance has caught the attention of scouts and Sanders believes Green has the potential to make it to the first round of the draft. However, Sanders decided to keep the identity of the fourth potential first-round pick secret, adding to the excitement and anticipation.

This optimism from Deion Sanders reflects his belief in the talent and preparation of his players. If his predictions are accurate, this would be a remarkable accomplishment for Colorado football and a testament to Sanders’ coaching and scouting program.
