Top 100 College Football Players 9/1/12

September 1, 2012

Last year I posted my top 50 college football prospects and this year I decided to go a step further and bump it up to a Top 100 list. This is probably too long to actually read from start to finish, it’s 52 pages in a word document, yet it can be extremely helpful if you just go down the list and control F to read about that specific player you want to find out more information on. For instance if you’re an Aggie then control F and write Sean Porter, Luke Joeckel, or Demontre Moore and you’ll find there specific profile to read more about. Or you can check back periodically and see what I wrote about a player before the season began. Keep in mind that this list does not include any incoming freshman but does include every other class in it so even though a Sammy Watkins isn’t eligible for the 2013 Draft he’s still on this list. Some only include eligible players but I like to see them all as it gives you a better understanding of where the strengths and weaknesses of upcoming draft classes will be. Last year a strength was DTs and QBs as both had elite talent at the top and had great depth. The year before it was at pass rusher (Von Miller, Aldon Smith, Ryan Kerrigan, Robert Quinn-he’s blowing up this year I guarantee it) and the 2013 Draft appears to be deep at safety, wide receiver, and offensive guard. These things always change depending on which underclassmen stay for their senior year and which leave early but that’s the early analysis. I’ll try to update my rankings for a midseason Top 100 and an end of the season Top 100 so that the elite newcomers (did you see WR Cordarrelle Patterson for Tennessee last night? WOW!) can have a chance to make an appearance. Hope you enjoy the list.

Notes: #33 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Was expected to go to Alabama but switched his committment to Cal late in the process. Started his career with a bang as he led the team in receptions and yards (10 186 2) after 2 games. Is their star playmaker in 2011. Considered one of their hardest workers. In the 2011 USC game showed nice burst on 10 yd quick slant (12:44 1st), fumbled on WR screen showing good quickness to avoid tacklers but had way too much space holding ball. In the 2011 Stanford game had 42 yd diving catch over CB on 9 route that he wasn’t that open on (14:50 1st), beat CB on 13 yd out on 3rd and 11, quick slant vs. CB Michael Thomas for +15 on 3rd and 7, good catch vs. Thomas for 17 yd TD on fade route using body to create a tiny bit of separation for pass (5:58 1st), solid cut on 0 route to get 11 yds avoiding CB in space, could catch high and away crossing route that was tough but catchable. In the 2011 Arizona St. game he had a 42 yd WR screen showing a great ability to setup blocks as he had two defenders and one blocker yet set it up to get both then showed outstanding speed for his size shooting down the sideline outrunning the LBs and only getting stopped by the safeties who had the angle-holding on play negated it (11:50 2nd).

Notes: A tall, lanky kid with long arms and elite ball skills. Was boundary corner in 2010 and moved to field corner in 2011. Led the country in INTs in 2011 with 13-more than 63 teams have! Most ints in a season in ACC history, broke Dre Bly’s record. In the 2011 Louisville game he had a spectacular INT on post route he was being shielded by WR on as he jumped and caught the ball in front of the face of the WR then returned it +50 yds for the TD-a spectacular INT and an equally spectacular return (6:40 3rd), nice INT on last play of the game winning the hail mary jump ball again showing his great height, long arms, and elite ball skills (0:41 4th). He has the makings of a future star and 1st round pick 12/27/11.

Notes: Voted by his teammates, as only a Soph, as the “most likely player to be an NFL star.” In the 2011 North Carolina game he had great sack and FF on blitz up the middle (4:00 1st), very nice blitz from outside hitting RB Giovanni Bernard for 2 yd gain showing good speed (13:23 2nd), great speed rushing getting 4 sec sack vs. RT (6:54 2nd), great coverage batting ball going to WR causing int (6:00 2nd), and no rush in 5 sec vs. LT James Hurst (9:20 4th). A definite sleeper who is a future 3-4 OLB prospect as he has a nice burst and a shorter, thick frame. In the 2011 Virginia Tech game he had a nice hustle sack getting around the LT, RB, and then the LG coming back around to help but at the end of the play he inexplicably punches the QB in the back of the helmet for a PF on 3rd and 19 that he just got a sack on? (3:30 3rd).

Notes: Is their KR as well. In the 2011 LSU game showed nice speed on +10 yd run on short dump off (13:42 1st), no separation on 9 route vs. Eric Reid, very nice 10 yd out showing speed and quickness which is even more impressive when realizing he looks fast against LSU’s secondary (6:30 1st), couldn’t catch ball in traffic that hit him in the hands bouncing off him for big int (4:36 1st), nice 0 route YAC avoiding LB immediately then shooting upfield for a quick 15 yds (14:00 2nd), good catch for 5 yd hitch on 4th and 4 getting hit immediately by Reid, open vs. Claiborne on 5 yd in but dropped ball forcing punt, elite quickness making LB miss on quick slant then switching fields eventually diving for 12 yds, showed his elite speed on 39 yd end around distancing himself from the entire LSU defense (10:45 3rd), good catch on 9 yd curl getting hit hard and immediately by S Eric Reid but hanging on for 1st, blew past CB Tyrann Mathieu on post that he then cut hard to avoid Reid for another +20 yds on 72 yd! (2:21 3rd). No receiver in the past two years has had a better game against LSU’s elite secondary than he did (11 187). He was way too fast for either CB and showed elite instincts and quickness in the open field to get plenty of YAC. He is officially on my top 50 as a rich man’s Titus Young as he has the quickness and elusiveness but also the pure speed that Young lacked. Had a very good Soph year in ’10 (58 787 8 TD) as he led the team in numerous receiving categories. In the 2011 Clemson game he had the game of his life with 4 TDs including an end around where he dove at the pylon, an end around where he juked at least 3 defenders, and the last taking a short hitch and making a sick move on a safety to get wide open for a walk in 37 yd TD (9:20 3rd). He looked like the best player on the field in this game just as he did against LSU and those are two big feathers in his cap. Late 1st rounder 1/12/12.

Notes: Twirls his hands like gears before every play at LOS. In the 2011 LSU game had a nice quick slant breaking S Eric Reid’s tackle for +10 YAC against CB blitz (14:50 1st), went crazy blocking CB Morris Claiborne hitting him in the facemask numerous times and pushing him back +10 yds, miscom with QB, nice separation on 12 yd curl vs. CB Tharold Simon on 3rd and 9 (5:31 1st), great short hitch he turned up the sideline quickly making Claiborne miss him allowing YAC for 20 yd TD (12:36 2nd), great 10 yd comeback breaking Claiborne and CB Tyrann Mathieu’s tackles for extra yards (9:50 2nd), pushed off on Claiborne for 10 yd curl but not called, great 13 yd in vs. Claiborne who grabbed it at the end on a 50/50 ball but O wins that, 10 yd curl vs. Claiborne that he again avoided the tackle on to get another 5-has great quickness for YAC (8:22 4th).

Notes: In the 2011 LSU game had a great strip of TE Mitch Joseph and then an even more impressive int on the bobbled ball before it touched the ground-overturned as the TE for a split second had his knee down (9:50 1st), good pbu on WR Reuben Randle allowing no separation on 6 yd curl on 3rd and 4 to force punt (11:50 3rd), good catch on int that was horribly thrown right to him but still had to make the adjustment off the WR and make a semi-tough hands catch over his head (10:10 4th). A highly underrated CB who was avoided by LSU much of the game and clearly outplayed WR Reuben Randle in coverage. A definite sleeper 9/19/11. In the 2011 Wake Forest game he had solid tackle for loss on CB blitz showing aggressiveness though he did get knocked hard on tackle-smaller guy but at least he isn’t afraid, blocked the entire time by WR on 14 yd TD run right at him-he’s a great cover guy and aggressive against the run but is pretty weak, good recovery and +10 yd return of blocked FG (13:11 2nd), beat for a step or two on 9 route with safety help but thrown out of bounds, okay getting off WR block this time for 5 yd tackle, missed QB in kill zone on CB blitz going unblocked, lots of separation on 12 yd curl, separation on 11 yd out but dropped by WR, great TFL coming from other side of field on shallow cross hitting him immediately for -1 yd (4:12 4th). He allowed a few plays late in the game when they were playing off coverage but overall was rarely tested and looked tall and fast. I did notice a lack of strength on him that could be a factor in the NFL but I still really like the kid. 3rd round 1/4/12.

Notes: #2 QB by ESPN in ’09 class, has been a star at Steve Clarkson’s QB Academy last year following Dayne Crist around, this year being the star. One scout compares him to Matt Stafford coming out of Highland Park. Is a strong Christian who won’t be a partier in college. Was the star of the All American game winning MVP with 2 TD passes and more importantly was the best QB at the practices. #1 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Had a great start to his career as he was named the starter from the get go, beating out Mitch Mustain and others for the job, and playing very well vs. San Jose St. (233 1/0 78%). Had an even better game vs. Ohio St. in week 2, not statistically (195 0/1 48%) but when it mattered most, as he led his team on a 14 play 86 yard drive to get the go ahead TD with 1 minute left in the game. He is incredibly poised for a freshman, and with his athleticism and arm, he continues to look the part of a future #1 Overall Pick 9/13/09. Loved the kid the moment I saw him as he is much like Stafford years ago at Georgia in that they just look like NFL QBs, even at the age of 18. Struggled a bit as a freshman but I was impressed with his poise and leadership ability coming into a top notch program and beating out others for the starting gig. Had a much improved Soph year in ’10 (2,791 62% 26/12) yet did fall off considerably in the final few games of the year throwing 8 of his 12 picks in the final 5 games he played (missed the ND game due to injury). Enters the 2011 season ranked #6 on my Big Board and the #2 QB only behind Andrew Luck. In the 2011 Minnesota game was quick to his 2nd read for a short 5 yd catch (9:45 1st), seems to throw a lot of passes a bit high-not extremely high but at about their head or a little higher instead of at the numbers, nice timing throw for 5 yards on quick slant to Woods (7:40 1st), showed strong arm on 43 yd 9 route TD only underthrowing it a tad as Woods did have to slow a bit for it (9:31 2nd), threw 2 point conversion at the WR’s feet ruining play (9:25 2nd), nice throw to the outside shoulder of WR as he saw the CB breaking on the ball (1:40 2nd), perfectly thrown quick pass to Woods for 2 yd TD catch in corner of the end zone (0:40 2nd), good pass in traffic perfectly to Woods (13:07 3rd), delay of game (2:09 3rd), overthrew open TE (1:43 3rd), beautifully threaded pass on seam route to TE that he couldn’t hold on to when he got hit (7:52 4th), and a great throw rolling to his left and throwing that awkward throw for a strike for 18 yd curl on 3rd and 14 late in a close game (3:56 4th). His numbers (304 75% 3/0) are elite but his performance wasn’t anything more than good as he had some very nice throws but most were short slants and WR screens that inflated his numbers dramatically. In the 2011 Cal game he threw a picture perfect 32 yd fade dropping it over the shoulder against solid coverage-NFL throw (13:13 1st), twice in the 1st Q he had a lot of pressure and threw ahead of the WR trying to give him a chance for a great chance but essentially avoiding the sack, perfect throw on 9 route that just wasn’t open actually hitting WR in the hands on 43 yd route that was INC (0:05 1st). In the 2011 Notre Dame game had great play on naked bootleg with nothing available he sucked DE in to him and forced him to jump on fake of pass then ran around him for 1st down (11:21 1st), good mobility moving around in pocket then avoided DT to get to open field where he juked LB Manti Te’o to get 5 yds out of nothing (8:52 1st), easy 3 yd TD to wide open TE, threw ball too high on open 15 yd out but WR adjusted nicely, great recognition of open WR on bootleg throwing easy 5 yd TD (1:01 1st), threw a little high to TE in flat on TE screen, started 8-8 with 2 TDs, perfect throw on 15 yd curl after play action (11:50 2nd), barely overthrew open WR on post route, good quick slant though a little high but right in stride for YAC (7:42 2nd), just missed on 15 yd fade, easy 10 yd quick slant in stride, again showed good mobility on naked bootleg with no one open he made a LB miss then dove for a 1st on 3rd and 1-not much speed but surprisingly elusive (12:50 4th), led field reversal of WR screen gone wrong blocking someone for his teammate showing heart, good 25 yd post but did throw a little low forcing diving catch, solid throw away avoiding sack as defender had him in his grasp (9:16 4th), great job stepping up in pocket, reading coverage, and finding wide open RB at front pylon yet he juggled it for INC (8:38 4th), beautiful 16 yd fade for TD-did force WR to dive for it but was an “easy” dive as it was just out in front of him (7:50 4th), great job burning clock down to 1-2 seconds before he snapped ball late in game. A very good game again by Barkley as the guy is just incredibly efficient completing 70% of his passes, not throwing ints, not fumbling, and not taking sacks. He isn’t the runner Luck is and isn’t as accurate as a Sam Bradford but he is still a franchise QB in my eyes and is deserving of the #1 Overall Pick if Luck doesn’t come out. Top 5 10/25/11.

Notes: True freshman starting games at LSU, a rarity. Coaching staff loves him and thinks he is a future star. WR coach calls him the best freshman WR he has ever been around. In the 2011 Mississippi St. got plenty of space on his 10 yd curl (10:48 1st), good hands catch on 13 yd gain with a quick cut in the open field to get more yards (14:20 2nd), very nice diving extended hands catch for 8 yds (13:55 2nd), elite quickness shown on 5 yd catch and run off a 0 route as he can start and stop on a dime and made guys miss badly in the open field (14:04 4th), and a beautiful hands catch on slide for 11 yds showing his elite hands (13:40 4th). In the 2011 Kentucky game he had a great 51 yd catch and run on a short hitch he juked his defender with his back turned then made another quick cut to cross the entire field to pickup blockers for an easy TD run after that (1:10 2nd). In the 2011 Arkansas game he had a false start and a hold on a run play with no major catches that I noticed.

Notes: Lost mother to cancer at age 10. Lost relatives to the tsunami in Haiti. Missed senior year in HS with hamstring injury. Redshirted in 2010 due to tearing ACL in camp. Reminds me of a bit weaker but smoother Ray Rice. In the 2011 Virginia game had a nice one handed catch on shallow cross for 15 yds (12:35 1st), very nice quickness on RB screen showing nice hands as well on the 19 yd gain (14:40 2nd), outstanding vision on sweep right that he brought all the way back to the center and burst upfield for 40 yds (14:45 3rd), showed good but not elite speed again on 29 yd run with huge hole up the middle yet he tried to juke too much probably losing 5 yds if he had just run straight (6:03 3rd). Looks like a future NFL prospect 9/19/11. In the 2011 Louisville game had a very quick cut for a 7 yd run showing the smoothness that I saw before (11:35 2nd), fumbled ball just as he looked to be getting out of pile, nice 10 yd run juking in and out of blockers (4:58 2nd), great patience and vision on 3 yd TD but didn’t look that quick in hole (7:12 3rd), good speed on 12 yd off tackle outrunning CB Joe Castaneda to the edge, good power dragging MLB Dexter Hayman an extra 3 yds on 7 yd carry (9:03 4th), and great hands holding onto dump off pass that he was decleated on. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game he started it out with a 25 yd off tackle run showing impressive speed (14:43 1st), great lateral quickness getting 1st on 2nd and 2 then shifting in hole to avoid tackler for a few more (12:40 1st), nice 4 yd run for a TD showing a nose for the endzone as he shifted his body sideways to get into small hole for the final yard (11:32 1st), elite run getting 3 yd dump off on 3rd and 15 immediately making quick move to juke one defender then getting 10 yds dragging/breaking tackles on 3 defenders to then speed another 8 yds for the improbably first (8:43 4th), showed his very good speed on 55 yd TD run shooting through the hole in the middle with no secondary gaining on him (7:22 4th). In the 2011 Clemson game he didn’t start b/c dealing with injuries but had a nice +10 yd run breaking tackles and showing his very good lateral quickness yet did fumble ball at the end (3:58 2nd).

Notes: Had 93 yd TD vs. Utah in ’10. In the ’10 Rose Bowl vs. Wisconsin had a nice 44 yd double move showing good speed (2:28 1st). Kirk Herbstreet said he will be a star someday. In the 2011 Baylor game caught an 8 yd curl and couldn’t be tackled with whistle finally being blown showing good strength (10:14 1st), dropped easy ball to him (9:40 1st), let tough ball go through his hands (9:35 1st), good job adjusting to post lobbed up over defense to come down with it and show very good speed to outrun secondary for nearly a TD (6:03 1st), dropped ball with defender draped on him on short crossing route (2:07 1st), nice catch and run on short hitch turning it into 23 yd gain showing good speed and moves (12:42 3rd), good job wrestling pass from CB as QB threw it behind him and it was almost a jump ball at that moment (2:30 3rd), and gave him carry out of RB position on the goal line but it was for a short gain (0:25 3rd). Has big, soft hands which makes it so surprising that he dropped 3 passes of varying difficulty tonight. In the 2011 Louisiana Tech game he had a great 33 yd catch winning jump ball over CB right next to him-good highpoint of ball (1:06 1st), dropped sliding catch on low ball that was hard but catchable-appears to have slipped on break, slipped again on break but nearly caught ball on his butt, no separation on post vs. double cov for INC, dropped 6 yd curl vs. tight cov.

Notes: Had an outstanding year in ‘09 as a freshman with 89 tackles and 3 ints. Had a very good year in 2010 with 67 tackles and 5 ints including a pick 6 against Arizona St. In the 2011 LSU game had a nice TFL crashing the box and taking down RB Spencer Ware by the legs (10:22 1st), and a great somersault int on deflected ball off a WR but later ruled correctly that he trapped it (13:50 2nd). He had 7 tackles in the 2011 Arizona St. game and is the leader of the defense calling all of the plays and being a favorite of the coaches. In the 2011 Stanford game he had a great pbu in end zone coming over from centerfield to help on WR (6:30 2nd), he showed a lot of feistiness throughout the game jawing at guys and falling on guys a little after the whistle. In the 2011 UCLA game (Pac-12 Championship) he had great recognition of QB’s eyes coming over to cut off 9 route for easy INT but dropped it (0:04 1st).

Notes: Ranked #135 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. Extremely tall, making his 210 lbs look even more measly on him. For such a tall kid he is surpisingly mobile and is quick at setting up for a throw. Beat out Matt Simms (Phil’s son) and played very well down the stretch in ’10 as he got in a nice groove with Gerald Jones and Denarius Moore. Threw a few great deep balls in the ’10 Music Bowl vs. North Carolina as well as ran the offense very well against a quality D. Enters the 2011 season ranked #45 on my Big Board. Broke Peyton Manning’s record of 7 straight games with +2 TD passes in his 3rd game of his sophomore year! In the 2011 Florida game had a very nice side arm throw avoiding pressure in the pocket yet batted down by DB as there was no separation (8:01 1st), nice 15 yd throw on open curl with good velocity and accuracy (1:03 1st), fumbled snap (0:30 1st), unable to hook up with open late WR when flushed from the pocket by the constant pressure he was under in 2nd Q (3:10 2nd), great understanding and direction of his offense as he scrambled out of the pocket again under duress yet directed a WR towards the middle of the field to get him open for 20 yds (3:00 2nd), back shoulder throw to his TE making a tough NFL throw against a very good secondary look easy (2:06 2nd), nice quick throw on CB blitz during bad snap for 5 yd TD-easy throw made hard by snap (1:46 2nd), poor int not noticing CB Josh Evans dropping into area to undercut WR route (14:47 3rd), nice quick slant to Da’Rick Rogers in stride for YAC (10:30 3rd), incredible throw on the run with pressure behind him throwing a side armed bullet right into the tight window between two defenders yet dropped-a big time NFL throw (9:14 3rd), perfect 19 yd post to Rogers for TD in between two defenders again (4:31 3rd), poor throw that he was lucky his WR batted away from CB (3:00 3rd), int on low snap that he threw to a WR that fell down-not his fault, negated anyways due to pass int on accidental trip (2:10 3rd), nearly picked off again this time by LB in the flat (1:20 3rd), another very nice pass in tight coverage that was dropped by a WR (6:15 4th), poor throw right to CB that was luckily dropped (4:55 4th), perfectly thrown 18 yd TD on seam route to TE in stride (4:55 4th), and ended game by overthrowing WR over the middle for an int (1:45 4th). Playing with a young OL, against one of the better secondaries in the country, with his star WR out for basically the whole game he still kept his team in it with pinpoint passing. He is a gunslinger and probably takes too many chances but I continue to see future NFL star written all over him 9/30/11. In the 2011 Georgia game he had an easy 1 yd QB sneak, perfect throw in stride to TE for 20 yd gain on 3rd and 10 (5:30 1st), great throw to WR on 15yd slant in between safety and LB in zone (14:01 2nd), made tough catch for WR on easy throw around sidelines (1:01 2nd), threw ball behind WR on 13 yd out (0:11 2nd), surprisingly bad throw on open 9 route forcing WR to completely turn around as he threw it too close to the sidelines (4:33 3rd), delay of game, great throw flushed out of pocket rolling left and throwing across his body perfectly to WR who dropped it (3:17 3rd), very risky toss as he was falling down to avoid sack-was intentional grounding anyways (9:35 4th), shutdown for the most part down 20-6 with 6 minutes left in game but engineered a nice, efficient drive for a quick +50 yds, hurt throwing ball getting hit on thumb and being replaced by QB Matt Sims (4:55 4th).

Notes: #6 in ESPN 150 for ’08. Transfer from Miami who is the starting MLB for them. In the 2011 Baylor game had the pivotal int vs. Robert Griffin III bobbling it for a good 2 seconds before securing it to set up the game winning FG (5:30 4th), very good sack on scrambling RG III showing impressive speed to track him down going for sidelines to get turn the corner or get out of bounds to stop the clock (2:55 4th), too much speed for RB Terrance Gannaway getting outside ahead of him on 3rd and 4 play stopping him for 1 yd (1:45 4th).

Notes: #1 on ESPN 150 for 2011. Called the best HS prospect since Da’Quan Bowers in 2008. In the 2011 Georgia game he got pancaked by LT Cordy Glenn when coming around the edge on the inside run (4:32 1st), took inside route nearly untouched past Glenn for a huge hit and a sack (10:24 2nd), forced holding penalty on OL (2:24 3rd), and blew nearly untouched past Glenn for a sack and FF that clinched the win (3:20 4th). He looked like the real deal in the first game I watched of him and looks far ahead of uber DE prospect Da’Quan Bowers was when he was a true freshman. He will almost surely be a 1st rounder in 3 years 10/12/11. In the 2011 Clemson game he didn’t play in 1st Q b/c of violation of team rules, had a very good pass rush forcing throw away by QB in the end zone which barely passed line of scrimmage avoiding intentional grounding and safety, elite burst blowing by backup LT for 4 sec sack but LG popped back and picked him off, great burst off edge forcing QB out of pocket then showed his elite athleticism tracking him down for sack-he has a burst, pure speed, body flexibility, and hustles. The kid will be a star very soon (5:05 4th). In the 2012 Vanderbilt game he was moved all around the OL to attack at different angles, blew through down block of LT Wesley Johnson to help on TFL, easy TFL going unblocked by LT and blowing past pulling OG to get RB (9:20 1st), had 5 sec cov sack doing lazy stunt and getting QB after he avoided previous rusher (8:35 1st). Overall an average game as he still isn’t consistent but a 1 sack, 3 TFL game isn’t too shabby 8/30/12.

Notes: In the 2011 Virginia game he showed elite quickness and agility on pull play not making a great block or anything but shooting around like a TE (14:26 4th), again showed great speed but again didn’t really block anyone and fell down embarrassingly (13:40 4th). In the 2011 Louisville game had a nice combo block helping LT on DE then getting out to OLB successfully showing good speed (8:57 1st), great pass pro vs. DT Roy Philon, false start, nice block turning DT to his right creating hole for RB to his left, might have a little too much quickness as he juked the defender on a pull block-first time I’ve ever seen this (10:13 4th), and pushed on his heels but recovered nicely pushing back at DT unfortunately he went too far and held. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game showed great mobility on pull block but again had a weak block at POA vs. LB (14:43 1st). In the 2011 Clemson game he had a big time run block vs. DT Brandon Thompson pushing him back a few yards (6:20 3rd), was very dominant throughout holding off a very good DL of Clemson.

Notes: #4 on ESPN 150 for 2011. Extremely highly rated prospect out of HS who many expected Marcus Lattimore type production in 2011. In the 2011 Boise St. game he slipped for 2 yd loss on first ever collegiate carry (11:04 1st), nice inside run dragging DT another 2 yds for 5 tough ones, 8 yd run showing patience to setup blocks on outside, very nice 11 yd run dodging one tackler, breaking two other tackles, and then bursting up sideline for 9 more yards (3:00 3rd). In the 2011 South Carolina game he immediately showed his elite burst and speed darting around like a madman for 15 yds on his first carry (8:15 1st), showed his surprising strength getting hit hard by two players yet staying upright to run 28 yds on his second carry (7:30 1st), elite burst on off tackle play looking like a WR taking an end around (5:04 1st), took wildcat snap and leaped over a small pile to ensure the first on 3rd and 3 (14:55 2nd), missed a key block assignment then went off to get more padding for his ribs which to me is my biggest worry as he has elite burst but is small and might be injury prone, nice one handed catch on high RB screen pass then showed his elite burst to get 23 yds when little was there (7:30 3rd), another screen pass 2 plays later this time for a 17 yd TD showing elite burst and diving at the pylon to get in (6:15 3rd), fumble on play where it didn’t look like he got hit-returned nearly for a TD (3:35 3rd), outstanding 8 yd run dragging the sweep right along until he had a gap and bursting through it with elite speed (8:16 4th), and a very mild stiff arm was all he needed to get the space to burst through the hole for an 11 yd TD (6:30 4th). The kid is a wunderkind with an elite burst, good vision, and surprising strength. I already rate him as the #2 RB in the nation only behind Trent Richardson as the kid has future NFL superstar written all over him 10/12/11. In the 2011 Tennessee game he dropped an easy catch out of the backfield (14:27 1st), hit hard on outside run fumbling ball that luckily went out of bounds-injured on play (10:30 1st), returned in middle of 2nd, nice moves on inside run he broke outside for 9 yds where nothing was there (12:42 3rd), hit hard by MLB not gaining an extra inch on 2nd and goal from the 2 (9:00 3rd), really good 17 yd run showing speed to beat LBs to edge after passing LOS on inside (4:53 3rd), never looked the same after wrist injury. In the 2011 LSU game (SEC Championship) he was booed by fans after a poor carry, missed blitz pickup getting QB hit hard, and later called for PF trash talking to LSU players after a very cheap hit by LB Ryan Baker on his teammate. Coaches are not happy at all with him and think he needs more maturity and to work harder. In the 2011 Michigan St. bowl game he barely played and limped off after a run where he was tackled from behind, hardly a big hit, showing again his lack of toughness and the coaches lack of faith in him. Has dropped from the #2 RB in the nation to a guy who isn’t a 1st rounder and really needs to redeem himself next year 1/19/12.

Notes: Early enrollee. #21 on ESPN 150 for 2011. In the 2011 Texas Spring Game he gave no separation on 9 route vs. WR Mike Adams (12:05 1st). In the 2011 Texas A&M game he had a great game with an INT, numerous tight coverages on deep routes, and a few pbu. In the 2011 Baylor game he was beat by a few yards on 40 yd 9 route TD vs. WR Terrance Williams (7:50 4th). In the 2011 Oklahoma game he was beat on first play giving huge separation on 10 yd curl to WR Ryan Broyles then missing tackle for +30 yds YAC, no separation vs. Broyles on corner route, little separation on 9 route vs. WR Jaz Reynolds but ball perfectly thrown, beat for 5 yd curl TD by Broyles, good return to 29 yd line from end zone, good pbu on 25 yd post that WR caught but his well timed hit in the back jarred it loose, no separation on 9 route vs. Reynolds for INC

Notes: Looks like an NFL DL. In the 2011 West Virginia game he was at DT and bull rushed inside getting sack, he blew past RT on speed/under move hitting QB for sack but ball thrown away as he fell down (7:36 1st), moved him all over the field from DT to wide 9 DE, batted ball at LOS on rush upfield, quick penetration from stand up position hitting RB in backfield almost getting TFL but helping tackle for 3 yd gain.

Notes: #5 in ESPN 150 for ’10. An extremely strong back with great balance and lower body strength that makes him a great short yardage candidate and inside runner to go along with his quality athleticism. In the 2011 Utah St. game he showed his outstanding strength breaking 3 tackles and giving it good to the 4th who eventually got him down (4:15 2nd), and 11 yd TD run showed strength again getting hit hard at the 2 but still getting into the end zone (11:16 3rd). He carried the ball 41 times in the South Carolina game showing his workhorse ability. In the 2011 Alabama game he had a good stiff arm churning legs for final 3 yds on 7 yd run with little there, very nice cut on inside run to get outside for 6 yds-was quiet in game but didn’t get many carries and there wasn’t much room when he did. Transferred to ArkansasState to reunite with his offensive coordinator.

Notes: #3 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Has not just the # but also the svelte physique of someone not on the DL. In the 2011 Tennessee game he had a great TFL against C James Stone on first play shooting the hole before he could be down blocked (10:30 1st), very noticeable speed and quickness even on a play that he had nothing to do with as he shot a hole away from the play (9:52 1st), was actually too quick in his penetration as he flew by the QB in the RB exchange targeting the wrong one as a half second later he would have had a huge hit and TFL-either way he ruined the running play with one of the quickest penetrations I’ve ever seen (8:25 2nd), blew past the weak block of LG Alex Bullard for an easy TFL on a running play away from him which shouldn’t have been this easy! (7:45 2nd), beat Stone but doubled by Bullard to negate pass rush (7:02 2nd). Looks like a future 1st rounder who I am salivating about as it is rare to see a body hold 280 lbs so nicely as he is svelte like a LB not a DT 9/30/11. In the 2011 LSU game he jumped early giving 1st down on 3rd and 2 (8:55 1st), good initial penetration vs. C PJ Lonergan but pancaked when he recovered nicely (6:42 1st), lined up at DE and went unblocked until FB who he threw away easily for very nice TFL (1:32 1st), again lined at DE and shed RT to help tackle RB for 1 yd gain (5:45 3rd). In the 2011 Alabama game he had quick penetration inside beating DJ Fluker who started to hold him but let go (1:00 1st), very questionable personal foul on screen pass that he got to QB extra quick on and shoved him to the ground supposedly too long after the ball was out, cut well by LT Barrett Jones yet showed great agility getting up to make tackle 6 yds downfield (14:30 3rd), great penetration for TFL on toss left showing great speed (12:35 3rd), great strength pushing RG all the way back into the ball carrier at handoff for big TFL (2:40 3rd). In the 2011 Florida St. game he had a 2.5 sec sack going untouched to QB showing his elite burst (12:22 1st).

In the 2011 Michigan game had a clutch 20 yd in with little space holding on with hands coming in to try and poke it free (8:40 4th). In the 2011 USC game he had a solid 5 yd out with little separation for 1st down, next play had good separation on 8 yd out (6:27 3rd), good 10 yd curl holding on despite getting hit immediately (4:17 3rd), very soft hands shown on 10 yd out on 4th and 3 also showing good power to bulldoze for YAC (3:10 3rd), great jumping catch in traffic showing his elite hands as a defender was all over him (14:30 4th). Most receptions by a TE in school history. In the 2011 Florida St. game he had a 10 yd in, great catch on 17 yd seam route holding on despite a big hit right as he caught it (3:05 1st), good catch on 3 yd out on 3rd and 2 getting hit right as he caught it, good 34 yd catch on seam route getting separation and showing good hands and agility catching ball at tough angle (13:07 4th), elite 22 yd extended hands jump catch holding on despite a big hit-has some of the most reliable hands of any prospect in this draft (8:00 4th). He had a great game making tough catch after tough catch seeming to get hit immediately after the reception each time. He has good size and good speed but his hands are his best attribute. 3rd round 12/29/11.

Notes: #9 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Starter in 2011. In the 2011 Tennessee game he diagnosed the play before it was run due to good film study waving players over to the left on the left sweep and avoiding the FB himself to make the tackle for no gain on RB Tauren Poole (8:45 1st), and great low diving catch on ball overthrown by QB allowing him in centerfield to make a play to end the game (1:45 4th). In the 2011 LSU game had a very nice TFL on quick pitch right racing up from safety spot to force punt (12:00 3rd), allowed 22 yd catch by TE DeAngelo Pedersen on 3rd and 19 (8:45 3rd), big hit on RB Spencer Ware in the hole (10:45 4th). In the 2011 Florida St. game he consistently moved up as the nickel CB in +2 WR sets, had a solid pbu not allowing separation but not turning to the ball, had a great TFL on 3rd down running up from safety and hitting RB trying to get the edge.

Notes: GBN, “a solid underneath receiver with the frame to grow into a decent in-line blocker.” Redshirted in ’09 and had a very solid freshman year in ’10 (29 323 4 TD). Freshman All American in 2010. The coaches love him and think he is a future star 12/24/10. Enters the 2011 season ranked #49 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Louisiana-Lafayette game he had a nice 12 yd curl on sideline toe tapping and showing great hands, dropped tough ball on 8 yd out over his head but somewhat catchable, dropped ball on 8 yd out as he was hit hard, good catch on 3rd and 7 with defender near him, great 20 yd catch on fade down sidelines vs. tight coverage jump catching ball (4:44 3rd), no separation vs. LB on 15 yd pass over middle but LB called for PI, no separation vs. CB but caught 12 yd cross extended hands one handed with final 4 being YAC.

Notes: Soph #12 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Reminds me of Justin Blalock a bit as a RT that is just huge who will need to move inside in the NFL. A thick bodied OT who a massive lower body that at worst would fit right in as an OG. In the 2011 Florida game I noticed his aggressiveness in blocking as he goes after DL but doesn’t seem to have great quickness, nice run block pushing undersized DE Lerente McCray around and away from inside run (11:50 1st), not quick enough on down block letting DT make tackle (10:40 1st), too slow again to down block DT who made tackle, showed his below average quickness reacting to stunt unable to get to DE going inside and lept to block him awkwardly-the kid is definitely a future OG (1:59 1st), beat inside by DT Dominique Easley nearly holding him but letting go (1:00 1st), no rush in 4 sec vs. DE showing solid quickness, got into it with LB Jonathan Bostic getting the best of it (10:10 2nd), looked to be beat twice inside on rush but had RG help negating both times (mid 2nd), got into it again with Bostic well past the whistle, beat inside by Bostic but run the other way. I think his lack of quickness makes it unlikely that he’ll be successful in the NFL at OT. That being said, his combination of size, strength, and aggressiveness is rare making him already a top 2 round OG who has the chance to be that rare OG drafted in the 1st 10/19/11. In the 2011 Auburn game he had a false start on the opening snap!, showed his strength jarring safety on blitz, good push on run play getting DT back 3 yds on inside run, great strength and aggressiveness pushing DT Gabe Wright back 5 yds then sideways then circled him around on a 6 sec run block that showed total domination (11:55 2nd), very good secondary block pancaking LB who was shooting in to make tackle in hole (1:32 3rd).

Notes: Cousin of Vernon Gholston. In the 2011 Michigan game he jumped on the pile late for cheap shot, threw a punch at the LT after he was pushed into the ground after the play was basically over-called for PF but not thrown out (0:07 3rd), great strength setting edge vs. RT then grabbing QB Denard Robinson and throwing him down (13:43 4th), barely blocked on should be 4 sec sack but missed in kill zone on Robinson (12:55 4th), great strength again bull rushing RT into QB for sack as he had fumbled the snap (12:50 4th), noticed him again on rush barely not getting to QB on inside rush as RB at the last second took him out. Seems similar to his cousin with elite athleticism but not very intelligent. William though is taller and heavier than his cousin so he is more of a true DE than a 3-4 OLB/DE tweener. Future top 3 rounder at least as his athleticism just jumps off the screen at you 10/21/11. Suspended for 2011 Wisconsin game for punch. Came back from suspension with the right attitude and was dominant vs. Nebraska and Minnesota with 29 tck, 3 TFL, and 1.5 sacks. In the 2011 Iowa game he didn’t get good rushes against LT Riley Reiff early in the game and most of the rest of the game he was on the other side. Did show good hustle nearly sacking QB on other side of field after +6 sec, great play on inside stunt pushing and beating the crap out of the RG then getting away to dive at QB barely missing a sack then getting up and going after scrambling QB to hit him hard 1 yd downfield-showed strength, hustle, and aggressiveness (4:40 4th), called for blatant hands to the face which he seems to do a lot-worse off is it was 4th and 8 so essentially saved Iowa a turnover (4:30 4th). In the 2011 Georgia game he had a great game with a pressure that wasn’t a sack only due to a nice juke by the QB, big hit on sack spinning off RG for coverage sack (8:20 2nd), did get blocked surprisingly easily by TE Orson Charles a few times on run plays, huge hit on inside stunt leveling QB and nearly causing fumble-called INC (6:51 4th), beat LG on edge for 4 sec sack-pushed FG 5 yds farther and they missed for MSU win (3 OT). He looked like an absolute freak all game long with his long, angular frame and his burst and strength. Mid 1st 1/19/12.

Notes: Had two KR for TDs in ’10. Was backup CB in ’10, rarely was on D in the ’10 Valero Bowl vs. Arizona till end of game but did have solid, though too agressive, coverage on Juron Criner on deep pass he was called for pass interference on (4:22 4th) and a nice pbu that was almost an int (3:40 4th). Intriguing athlete with great size and speed though I do worry about his long legs. In the 2011 Arizona game had a very nice kick return to the 37 showing elite speed but was brought back for holding (9:59 4th).

Notes: A tall, skinny QB who has an NFL look to him. Has a quick release and a strong arm zipping the ball around the field. In the 2011 Louisville game he had a fastball 10 yd curl but was a bit low, good accuracy on 10 yd out to TE with LB close, good throw on run to TE on sideline but barely out of bounds, thread needle getting 10 yd curl but nearly pick six, good 6 yd TD to open WR on 2nd read-his analysis of defenses is very quick, good arm strength throwing 40 yd pass on a rope but overthrew 9 route for INC, took 5 sec sack, very bad throw on 9 route underthrowing it into double cov for easy INT (9:50 2nd), accurate throw on 8 yd out vs. tight coverage to TE, good velocity and accuracy on wide open 35 yd 9 route for TD (4:05 2nd), good 20 yd post in stride to WR allowing him to cut and avoid safety then streak to end zone for 68 yd TD-most was WR though (1:43 2nd), threw short dump off passes quickly numerous times under pressure-coolness under pressure that I liked, had surprising speed on 8 yd scramble-not a burner but more mobile than I expected, great throw behind WR as safety was on other side about to hit him but did anyways and WR dropped 12 yd TD pass, good throw vs. tight coverage for pbu but still perfectly thrown,      I was very impressed with the height, arm strength, mobility, and accuracy he had as he reminded me of a poor man’s Tyler Bray or Brock Osweiler. His release is very quick for a guy his height and I think that all he really needs is more experience and he could zoom up draft boards. Most likely he isn’t draftable on anyone else’s draft board but I have a 4th round grade on him 12/27/11.

Notes: Soph #8 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Was the biggest waffler of any recruit in the 2010 HS class, he as of 02/27/10 hasn’t even signed with USC yet and is waiting till after the NCAA investigations into the Reggie Bush scandal. It isn’t a huge deal but, just like Ryan Perriloux a few years ago, it shows something about a person’s character. He eventually left USC high and dry for Miami who 1 year later had NCAA punishment themselves. Noticed him on film in the ’10 Sun Bowl vs. Notre Dame as he had a QB pressure (14:25 2nd) on an inside move, got extremely emotional when Jacory Harris threw an int (13:35 2nd), was pancaked on a run play (4:15 2nd). Was a freshman All American in ’10 when he started at RT. Injured during the spring doing squats and had a herniated disk. Missed most of the 2011 season but did come back for a few games.

Notes: Cody Hoffman BYU 6’4 205 Jr. Redshirt freshman who had a solid ’10 (34 390 4 TD) and then capped it off with a great bowl game vs. UTEP (8 137 3 TD). Had a spectacular leaping catch in the middle of the field on one play and was dominant throughout, a future star 12/17/10. In the 2012 WashingtonState game he 5 yd cross, wide open on out for +20 yds, 15 yd slant-hit hard on hip and went out and never came back.

Notes: True freshman had a very solid ’10 (43 532 4 TD) and really came on in the final 4 games of the regular season (346 3 TD). Is also on the Clemson basketball team. Has very nice hands that he uses to catch the ball away from his body. He is very advanced for a freshman. In the 2011 Florida St. game he showed nice speed off the line catching shallow cross a few yards short of 1st then making a move to avoid defender for 1st down on 3rd and 7 (9:41 1st), good speed and understanding of how to shield CB Mike Harris on 50 yd 9 route that he had little separation on (2:51 1st), good hands catching 5 yd hitch that was at his feet (14:30 2nd), solid separation on 8 yd hitch vs. CB Xavier Rhodes. In the 2011 North Carolina game he had lots of separation on 15 yd curl then he made S, LB, and CB all miss to get final 5 yds for TD on very impressive play (1:14 1st), good separation on 8 yd curl vs. S Tre Boston then showing aggressiveness that I liked running through safety with a big hit for 4 more yards (8:03 2nd), took quick hitch and got YAC for first on 3rd and 10 breaking CB Charles Brown’s tackle (3:15 2nd), great win of jump bal vs. Boston for 38 yd gain showing great timing to high point it and outstanding strength-his strength has been very evident in this game as he has gotten YAC and been very physical against a solid secondary (11:23 3rd).

Notes: From Estonia who only has been playing football for 2 years. Won gold medal in the shot put and discus at the 2006 Junior World Championships (only person in history to do that). In the 2011 Texas A&M game had a blocked extra point with it being his 11th career block (2:16 1st), had another blocked extra point this one being less about his amazing height as he got skinny and shot through the line being nearly to the kicker by the time it was kicked with it hitting him in the shoulder pads (1:05 2nd). Only been playing football for 4 years. Won gold at shot and discus world championships for 18 and under. Honorable mention C-USA in 2011. 14 blocked FGs in 3 years at SMU (4 in ’11, 3 in ’10, 7 in ’09). In the 2011 Pittsburgh game he had a great 4 sec sack getting between LG and LT and fighting through a hold of his jersey for an impressive sack (9:10 1st), shed LT Greg Gaskins on run play, won edge vs. Gaskins but held-no call, good closing speed of QB on scramble after 5 sec yet missed in kill zone, good close on QB rollout forcing INC otherwise would have been 4 sec sack, elite 3 sec sack blowing through Gaskins and throwing down QB when he grabbed him at his shoulder pads (0:30 3rd), beat Gaskins again on edge by speed and strength with nice burst to gain edge and strength to arm fight through OT for 3 sec sack-his potential is of a top 5 pick! (7:45). Unequivocably looked like the best player on the field on either team as he’s not just tall (6’8) but is big (295 lbs), fast (rumor has it he runs a 4.6), and is already producing (3 sacks in game, 14 blocked FGs in past 3 years) despite being raw (only played football for 4 years). He has the potential of a top 5 pick yet most likely will be taken in the late rounds. An absolute steal who has Pro Bowl potential. Reminds me of JJ Watt. 4th round 1/7/12.

Notes: -#26 in ESPN 150 for ’10. True Freshman that the coaches absolutely love. Jim Chaney the OC said he might be the most talented he has ever been around. Had an long pass that was incomplete b/c he fell out of bounds (1:37 2nd) that showed his amazing height and vertical as he had a great acrobatic jump ball. Possible star 12/30/10. In the 2011 Florida game he had a nice route and separation vs. CB De’Ante Saunders for 12 yds but collapsed with apparent knee injury on play-eventually walked off field (9:12 1st) and never returned.

Notes: Ranked #87 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. Watched him vs. Tennessee as a freshman starting LT in the ’10 Music City Bowl and he looked very solid. The more I watched him the more I was amazed as he has great bulk, good athleticism, and even looked okay blocking at the 2nd level. He isn’t an elite LT but I would already have ranked him as a 5th round type and he is just a freshman! The future is bright 12/30/10. Freshman All American in 2010. In the 2011 Virginia game showed good speed getting to LB enough to push him away despite LB over running the play all the way to the other side of the line (6:59 1st), pushed back a bit on 5 sec rush but stayed in front of his man the whole time (9:40 2nd), allowed pressure by DE on Brent Urban in 4 sec on just a pure bull rush yet steered him away from sack (3:00 3rd), again looked too weak vs. Urban as he had him inside on off tackle run behind him yet was pushed back and allowed Urban to make tackle for no gain (9:11 4th). Enters the 2011 season ranked #36 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Louisville game had an outstanding combo block starting on DE with TE then moving to OLB showing great quickness and agility in the open field (14:16 3rd), never noticed him any other time in the game as this game was a cake walk for him in terms of run and pass blocking. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game he had a great run block turning DE inside to create a huge hole for off tackle run (12:10 1st), very nice pull block hitting CB and easily getting him erased from play (6:02 1st), easily handled OLB Jeremiah Attaochu’s rush and threw him into S rushing as well but S got up and got 5 sec sack though no fault of his (9:20 4th). In the 2011 Clemson game he was matched up against DE Andre Branch and dominated him for pretty much the entire game.

Notes: In the 2011 Baylor game had a solid 7 yd run showing good quickness to juke inside to freeze LBs and then go outside (7:45 1st), made first defender miss but still only got 3 yds against good D (14:15 2nd), chop block on DE (11:10 3rd), great 38 yd run turning the corner breaking one tackle, outrunning an attempted arm tackle and then off to the races cutting it inside to juke safety who barely was able to trip him up to save a TD (4:44 3rd). Had nearly the same # of carries as Sr. RB Ed Wesley but +200 yds due to his gaudy 7.7 ypc in regular season for 3rd in the nation. Reminds me of a stronger, less explosive Montee Ball. In the 2011 Louisiana Tech game he had an amazing run for +25 yds called back breaking DE tackle at LOS then making an elite cut and racing down the sidelines for the majority-most RBs get 0 yds with few getting more than 5-7 yds on that play (1:27 1st), hit viciously at end of 9 yd run but bounced up immediately, good KR to 45 yd line-doesn’t have great speed but solid and more importantly is the power with the speed which makes it an impressive size/speed ratio, good burst on 12 yd run with nice hole on option flip.

Notes: #2 in ESPN 150 for ’10. In the 2011 Oklahoma game he had an impressive TFL racing around FB block to get RB Domonique Whaley (13:30 1st), good hands and lean getting edge quickly vs. LT Donald Stephenson but ball thrown quickly, solid TFL going unblocked from edge but showing good technique breaking down and dive tackling him in backfield. Blue Chip Recruit out of HS and the #1 player in the nation on alot of recruits boards. Freshman All American in 2010.

In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game he had a very poor play of run support with RB Jeremy Smith going through a big hole right to him with him positioned at the 1 yd line he moved up to hit him and basically got scared going really low and barely hitting a leg to let RB bounce off him into end zone easily-terrible play that makes me question if he will be a liability against the run (8:38 1st), much more aggressive crashing box and flipping Smith over for 12 yds, tackled RB Joseph Randle after 32 yds but it was a shoestring tackle and looked very iffy, great pbu on WR across the middle with strong tackle to cause drop, showed average speed not gaining on RB Jeremy Smith’s 37 yd TD run. In the 2011 Texas game he had PI on shallow cross of WR Jaxon Shipley when he was beat, great coverage on TE Blaine Irby’s seam route getting INT when TE fell as ball was thrown (14:00 2nd), good speed on unblocked blitz for 15 yd sack (3:15 3rd). In the 2011 Florida St. game he had quick tackle on short out vs. TE, rushed passer as DE against LT Andrew Datko, great TFL on WR dump off in flat with just him and the WR and he attacked him aggressively dive tackling him and wrestling him to the ground for loss of 5 yds (14:10 3rd), allowed 10 yd slant vs. WR Jarred Haggins, beat on 20 yd post by Haggins, good CB blitz hitting QB at 3 sec when he threw for INC.

Notes: Had a great ’10 with 13 sacks (2nd in ACC) and 19.5 TFL (3rd) which combined for the 3rd most productive season in school history! In the ’10 Chick Fila Bowl vs South Carolina had a great TFL from the DT position (13:10 1st), was the 2nd man down on a PR (4:30 1st), had a half sack on inside stunt that he then took outside (1:15 1st), and had a great sack on a pure speed rush that ended up not being a sack as it was no gain (5:00 4th). Enters the 2011 season ranked #12 on my Big Board and the #4 defender behind only Coples, Kuehly, and Crick. In the 2011 Clemson game had no rush vs. LT Phillip Price on 4 sec speed rush (2:55 1st), showed great strength and aggressiveness taking on pulling OG block on edge and blowing through it to hit RB for 1 yd gain (13:06 2nd), good quick spin move on LT but didn’t get separation and showed his weak frame by getting tossed to the ground (10:17 2nd), no rush on 3 step drop vs. Price, no rush in 4 sec vs. Price getting stoned (4:36 2nd), got rush after 3 sec on stunt from DT spot vs. Price as he illegally put hands to the face opening inside rush lane to flush QB from pocket (4:04 2nd), finally a big time rush vs. Price as he started outside then bullrushed him forcing him back to QB and causing hold (1:35 2nd), blew past LT Phillip Price for easy 4 sec sack as I think he got tired at end of half (1:00 2nd), beat Price on speed rush after a few sec but ball thrown (13:10 3rd), good spin move again this time getting inside edge vs. Price for near sack as QB barely got away (7:10 3rd). In the 2011 Oklahoma game he had a great jump off snap almost looking like an offsides penalty but was quick throw to other side, great jump off snap getting edge but LT Donald Stephenson did good job riding it just past QB, great jump again on inside run he couldn’t affect but was so good I hade to rewind to verify it wasn’t offsides (1:35 1st), great job reading the TE screen and decleating TE as he caught it (12:10 3rd). In the 2011 Florida game he beat LT Chaz Green on edge but ball thrown quickly, good job holding stout at corner then disengaging from Green to get TFL on off tackle run, double teamed by RB and LT yet spun away and still hit QB just after he threw with QB on the ground for awhile afterwards, won edge vs. Green diving for QB and barely getting pushed too far outside but forced QB to step up in pocket for eventual sack. In the 2011 Notre Dame game he had a solid rush not quite getting edge but showing physicality and getting hand up for near batted ball, solid rush albeit it took awhile as he won the edge vs. LT after battling and would have had 5 sec sack but teammate got 4 sec (2:20 2nd), no rush in 6 sec vs. LT, solid inside rush on stunt going unblocked to QB who fell down for 4 sec sack-hardly a special play though as was more of an OL mix up (4:48 3rd), good rush battling for edge and hitting QB with his arm at 3 sec but pushed just far enough outside that QB ducked inside to avoid him (11:40 4th). Once again I rarely noticed him as ND’s LT handled him pretty easily on nearly every snap. At his size I need to see a great burst and good production yet in 2011 I noticed neither making me further drop him from 2nd to the 3rd round now 12/29/11.

Notes: True freshman who has been very good for them in 2011. In the 2011 Stanford game he showed good hands and mobility for such a big guy taking dump off in flat and turning upfield for 9 plowing ahead through defenders, showed elite mobility for 28 yd gain on slant from split out position-reminds me of a young Jermaine Gresham with his ability to move despite being so big (0:33 2nd).

Notes: #4 in ESPN 150 for ’09 as a safety. Skipped 2nd grade and graduated HS at 16. Both parents are educators. Seems like a really good kid. Redshirted 2009. They bulked him up and moved him to LB. In the 2011 Tennessee game had a near int of poorly thrown ball in the red zone that could have been a pick 6 (4:31 3rd), great speed on LB blitz sacking QB Tyler Bray who had no chance (2:54 3rd), almost picked as he went out in the flat in zone showing elite speed and cover skills for a LB but poor hands as it was right at him (1:20 3rd). In the 2011 Alabama game he had a great TFL getting to off tackle in flat on other side of field showing his elite speed (9:15 2nd).

Notes: Ranked #84 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. Freshman All American in ’10. Started from day 1 at LT for the aggies as a true freshman and struggled a bit early in the year but was rock solid by the end of the year including a very good performance in the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. LSU where he allowed no pressures. Future 1st rounder 1/22/11. Enters the 2011 season ranked #25 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game he was dominant throughout the game except when he lost edge on push pull move to DE Jamie Blatnick for pressure (1:50 3rd), DE Richetti Jones bulled him over for 4 sec sack (13:55 4th). Once again he dominated the competition having two lapses during the game, with one unfortunately being a sack, but he clearly showed his dominance as the Aggies passed 47x in the game and only two times did I ever notice his man in any way.

Notes: #2 on ESPN 150 for 2011. Nicknamed “the freak.” Starter at DT for LSU as a true freshman. In the 2011 Oregon game had a great TFL breaking through the C and LG to grab RB LaMichael James (14:36 2nd). In the 2011 Mississippi St. game he was pushed aside to create running hole then pancaked by RG Quentin Saulsberry (1:57 1st), incredible play getting instant penetration as the OG over him was pulling and showed elite quickness to get into backfield and body slam RB as he was taking the handoff (6:40 2nd), got a hustling 6 sec coverage sack (6:45 3rd).

Notes: In the 2011 Florida game he appears to be more of a technician than an athlete, pancaked by LB on run block showing poor strength (10:40 1st), beat on edge nearly getting strip sack with ball just thrown vs. DE Ronald Powell (10:08 1st), okay agility to get to LB on 2nd level run block but no strength bouncing off him for tackle (4:22 1st), nice cut block on DT. In the 2011 Auburn game he easily handled speed rush but allowed rusher to sneak back inside for sack and FF that rolled into end zone for defensive TD (0:07 1st), poor balance on a very average rush nearly falling over on sidestep. For the 2012 NFL season he’s moved to center showing the elite versatility he has and I think it’s the right move as I always said he’s more technician than athlete and center is a very technical position.

Notes: An elite LB prospect who still has not chosen between UT, Florida, LSU, Georgia, and USC. Expected to be a star from day 1. Transfer from USC after 2009 season. In the 2011 South Carolina game had a nice hit on RB Marcus Lattimore’s short dump off pass avoiding two blockers (12:14 2nd), good pursuit showing speed on tackle of Lattimore on off tackle run for short gain (11:05 3rd), and a terrible job on blitz going offsides by a full second (2:43 3rd). In the 2011 Boise St. game had a great bull rush vs. LT Nate Potter getting almost to QB after 4 sec, big hit on RB Doug Martin going unblocked to get him at handoff (11:45 3rd). In the 2011 Tennessee game had a great TFL beating TE block to set edge forcing RB to go sideways then tracking him down for -3 yds (9:50 2nd), great trail of bad snap beating everyone to ball but QB and ready if he hadn’t grabbed it on 1st try, great strength shucking TE Mychal Rivera away for TFL (6:53 3rd), offsides, very nice rush vs. LT starting outside then quickly darting inside flushing QB out of pocket (3:17 3rd), nice trail sack on scrambling QB getting him on other side of field after he beat RT on speed rush (0:07 4th). In the 2011 Georgia game (SEC Championship) he wasn’t very noticeable but showed good speed and hustle late in 3rd down 18 forcing pitch from QB on option then tracking RB down for tackle after 11 yds.

Notes: In the ’10 Fiesta Bowl vs. UConn he had an NFL throw on a 15 yd out against perfect coverage showing accuracy, timing, and confidence (12:00 2nd), overthrew a 25 yd post that was wide open for a TD (11:47 2nd), well thrown 9 route to Kenney for 59 yd TD only having to slow down a little (11:00 3rd), perfect 9 route to Kenney for 36 yds (10:28 4th), and had a perfect 6 yd TD on sidelines against perfect coverage showing incredible accuracy on the run no less (7:52 4th). Enters the 2011 season ranked #27 on my Big Board. Had led his offense to a very poor red zone % TD/FG wise and has been replaced more and more by a running QB in recent games. In the 2011 Baylor game he had numerous early plays where guys were wide open yet somehow couldn’t lead team to more than 3 pts after 1 Q, nice play stepping up in pocket and scrambling left to find open WR and throw perfectly for 10 yd catch (12:10 2nd), lack of toughness on messed up handoff that left him with the ball and running room as he chose to slide for a loss? (4:40 2nd), great back shoulder 9 route/seam route throw to Stills who was perfectly covered for 30 yd gain-rare NFL caliber throw (11:52 3rd), ran for 12 yds actually juking a LB in space, took terrible sack on next play watching DT get cut get up and sack him without moving or throwing ball away?, threw very poor ball on curl for INT trying to drop it over defender to TE on post corner route (14:10 4th), overthrew WR by 5 yds, overthrew WR in end zone by +10 yds looking like he threw it away despite it being 4th down? (9:50 4th), good throw hitting WR on +20 yd out with pressure in his face and having to backpedal-NFL throw (6:26 4th). Has a face and head that reminds me of Tyson Chandler. In the 2011 Texas game he made an easy throw to open WR on curl that was taking +40 yds on first play of the game, very poor job handling rush that was non-existent for 3 secs then when it came he one hopped ball to WR in the flat, lots of 3-7 yd short passes, good 19 yd TD to wide open WR but threw ball perfectly (15:00 2nd), very nice back shoulder throw to Stills for 20 yd TD to start the blowout-called for pushing off (12:48 2nd), miscom with Stills for INC, poor accuracy and timing with Stills for INC on 15 yd out, great throw dropping 27 yd 9 route just over defenders shoulder before safety could come over-type of throw that makes me wonder if Jones can be a legit NFL QB (12:34 2nd), good 5 yd TD on 5 yd curl at front pylon well away from defender, underthrew wide open WR for would be TD causing INC, nice throw to covered TE showing great accuracy as he threw it low and away from defender (9:20 2nd), very slow on rollout-extremely noticeable how much he lumbers and will only get worse with age, great 25 yd post perfect to Reynolds in between defenders but hit hard and INC, one hopped ball to open WR on 15 yd curl?, poor throw on 4th and long (too long for FG) missing WR on post and 5 yds off target, good throw for 35 yds on seam route to Broyles, great 15 yd fade to Stills throwing ball perfectly (0:33 2nd), okay 13 yd out as was accurate but very open WR and a softball toss, great throw with two guys right by WR on 13 yd curl yet zinged it in there accurately for 1st-NFL type window (14:57 4th). In the 2011 Florida St. game he went untouched on first TD drive dinking and dunking down field with 12 yd curl to Broyles as longest throw, good 8 yd slant, first NFL throw of the game hitting Stills in stride for 14 yd out, missed 15 yd out to Stills on other side on miscom depth wise, hit as he threw (first time in game) and the duck went for a diving INT (0:48 1st), missed throw on dump off when pressure made him move in pocket, solid 40 yd 9 route throwing a bit late forcing WR to slow down and get hit hard by safety but still completing it, bobbled snap and fell on it, overthrew 9 route to Stills 50 yds in the air for an INT by safety (4:21 3rd), 15 yd slant to Stills with 8 YAC included, missed 20 yd seam when backed up in end zone forcing punt from 6 yd line (11:38 4th), good throw in tight coverage for 11 yds to Broyles-pumped to RB in flat then threw a bullet in tight window shows a glimpse of NFLness to his game, solid 20 yd seam route to Broyles with good velocity but was wide open, 38 yd TD on 9 route to Stills that actually was a terrible throw as Stills had 5 yds on him but he waited too long to throw and threw an arcing ball for a jump ball with it being lucky Stills won it (7:01 4th). When WR Ryan Broyles went out with an ACL tear in the A&M game it really showed his dependence on him as in the final 4 games he had 1/6 TD/INT ratio, the team went 2-2 in that stretch, and 2 of those 4 games he had a passer rating under 100 which for the college formula is absolutely horrible. He’s coming back for 2012 which is smart as right now I have an early 2nd round grade on him 12/31/11. Noticed a little bit of a belly on him in the OSU game. Wears a brace on his left leg. In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game (Big 12 Championship) he showed happy feet in the pocket and threw high to a wide open TE late in progressions (14:02 1st), very poor decision throwing into quadruple coverage for pbu that easily could have been INT (12:55 1st), started poorly missing 5 straight passes as he kept getting pressured and showed poor ability to handle it and step up to make a tough throw as WRs were open, solid 10 yd in to open WR, barely overthrew deep 9 route with WR only having half a step, good throw to wide side of field to open WR on 10 yd curl for 1st, threw 9 route too inside allowing CB to win jump ball for INT in the end zone (6:58 1st), good throw on 15 yd in with pressure in his face but a tad behind and WR dropped the catchable ball, good throw to wide side for 10 yd out with solid timing though did make WR jump a bit for it, perfect throw in stride to WR on post who just wasn’t open for pbu, too high to open WR on 15 yd in forcing punt, solid 10 yd curl but a tad high to WR, good 15 yd out to wide side of field open WR showing good timing and accuracy, very bad decision throwing into coverage on 9 route for pbu and almost INT, terrible ball security seeing unblocked LB come right up the middle and allowing the sack and FF that was returned to the 2 yd line for a TD that started the blowout (4:45 2nd), threw way too high across the middle giving WR no chance and causing punt, absolutely horrible play with ball slipping out of his hands and DE running it 20 yds for a TD (12:00 3rd), rolled right and threw 15 yd out to WR but was high and away forcing very tough diving catch, very poor mobility unable to avoid unblocked rushing LB despite him going too fast and him being very easy to avoid, good throw stepping up in pocket with rushers everywhere and throwing a bullet accurately to open WR on 15 yd in, poor decision on 9 route that was covered underthrowing it for INT (8:17 4th).

Notes: Soph #143 in ESPN 150 for ’09. A big, surprisingly fast back who has poor movement skills and looks very cumbersome but has an outstanding size/speed ratio allowing him to put up elite numbers in 2010 with minimal playing time (406 7.3 ypc 6 TD). Noticed him in the Capital One Bowl vs. Michigan St. when he had a great game (86 17.2 2 TD) capped by a 62 yd TD. In the 2011 Penn St. game ran into his own OL on a screen pass showing questionable vision (13:15 2nd), good bowling ball run for 8 yds bouncing off guys left and right and then moving the pile another few yards (2:15 3rd), great 9 yd run avoiding one tackle, running through another and bounced off the last for an additional yard or two (8:24 4th), good 30 yd run spinning off tackle after 15 yds for the rest-did look exhausted at the end of the run so he isn’t that well conditioned (6:46 4th).

Notes: Super Blue Chip prospect out of HS. Burst onto the scene as a true freshman with 1198 17 TD 4.8 ypc. Freshman All American in 2010. Had a huge game against a very good Florida D (212 3 TD 5.3 ypc) and a very solid one against a great Alabama D (93 2 TD 4.0 ypc). Future Heisman candidate and future 1st rounder 12/8/10. In the ’10 Chick Fila Bowl vs South Carolina had a 53 rec on a wheel route (13:55 1st) then a few plays later a fumble when he was blindsided on a mid pass (12:20 1st) that injured his face causing him to not return to the game. Lattimore missed one game and parts of 2 others with injuries as a freshman. Steve Spurrier absolutely gushes about the kid saying he is a student of the game and very respectful. A taller, long legged back with great vision and cutback ability who picks up yards quick due to his stride. Is a big back who has shown he can be a workhorse and has elite vision and pad level that complements his skill set perfectly. Enters the 2011 season ranked #19 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Georgia game showed his great vision cutting it hard to the right on a run meant to go left to pick up 12 yds (10:30 1st), nice run showing his good burst and elite pad level for 10 yds on 3rd and 3 (7:54 2nd), good 15 yd run showing power to avoid high tackle and keeping churning (1:06 2nd), nice burst on 14 yd draw play getting upfield fast (10:00 3rd), nice 24 yd run but showed his lack of elite speed as he never tested the homerun with numerous defenders bottling him up (11:56 4th), quick feet at LOS changing direction and his long strides helped him get edge on this one for an 7 yd gain where not much was there (11:30 4th), 36 yd inside run he bounced outside showing good speed but again getting tracked down before the goal line and for some reason not trying too hard to get in focusing more on ball security though his team was down 4 pts late in the game (4:50 4th), and great power on sweep right goal line run from the 3 as he found a hole then buried his head and rammed in there making sure no one could stop him (3:30 4th). As great as I know he is I still am having trouble grading this kid as sometimes I see a faster Steven Jackson and sometimes I see an overrated workhorse who doesn’t have a great burst, is a long strider, and is injury prone. Right now he is neck and neck with Cyrus Gray for the #4 RB in the country only behind Richardson, Wood, and Crowell 9/29/11. Won 2011 workout warrior award for being the best worker on the team. In the 2012 Vanderbilt game he had a fumble in his first carry back from knee surgery, great bounce back carry with 29 yd TD on 2nd carry of the season showing good speed and solid cut in open space (5:03 1st), very quick looking on inside run-only got 2 yds but great quickness for his size, nice spin move avoiding 3 potential tacklers on dump off in flat for 4 yds (13:40 2nd), not fast enough on 3rd and 3 pitch with safety cutting him down on angle, solid blitz pickup from rusher on other side, 11 yd run up middle, nice 24 yd run showing vision and quickness-lacks the extra gear as some could have threatened the secondary to take it the distance. Looks quick and fresh but not fully recovered from his knee injury as he isn’t cutting with abandon 8/30/12.

Notes: #96 on ESPN 150 for 2011. In the 2011 Minnesota game had a nice 5 yd catch he turned upfield for 8 yds and a first (9:45 1st), and solid speed but poor hands on 9 yd WR screen as he basket caught it? (2:10 1st). True Freshman starting in 2011. Came from Inglewood, CA. In the 2011 Cal game had a 32 yd catch getting slight separation vs. CB Steve Williams on perfect throw (13:13 1st), no separation vs. Williams on 9 route pbu in end zone (0:05 1st). In the 2011 Notre Dame game showed great hops jumping for overthrown 15 yd out getting it for completion (3:35 1st), beat CB and S Harrison Smith deep on post but barely couldn’t come down with diving catch (11:20 2nd).

Notes: Was 2nd in the nation in ’10 with 8 ints. Has incredible size for a safety and that combined with starting at arguably the best program in the country, while being coached by Saban (former DB coach who is very hands on with them), and having that kind of production puts him as a potential 1st rounder in my mind 2/17/11. Had a poor Bama spring game missing 3 tackles two of which were on RBs that led to TDs. Enters the 2011 season ranked #44 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Penn St. game he was beat on the first play on a post giving help to Menzie but WR couldn’t catch it (14:50 1st), showed good speed tackling FB quickly on misdirection pass (13:40 1st), ball hit the ground but he nearly had a diving int (12:20 3rd), had a great diving int on the very next play on shallow cross-but again was overturned as it barely hit the ground (12:15 3rd), good hit to help break up underthrown 9 route to WR Derek Moye (3:34 3rd). I was incredibly impressed by Lester in this game and he moves up a ton in my book as he was more physical than last time I saw him and wasn’t just the ballhawk but also a head hunter. In the 2011 Florida game he was beat on 30 yd out by WR Deonte Thompson (8:20 1st). In the 2011 LSU game #2 he had a good break on the ball from cover 2 spot nearly getting INT, solid TFL cleaning up teammates tackle, good blitz up middle nearly getting 3 sec sack but went too fast and flew right past in kill zone. Returning for senior year-a bit of a surprise as he’s an early 2nd rounder in my book and the #2 safety in the draft 1/21/12.

Notes: Ranked #75 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. Was a freshman All American in ’10 with 55 tackles, 7 TFL, and 3 ints. Tall, skinny kid who needs to gain weight but just flies to the ball and makes big hits when he gets there. In the ’10 Valero Bowl vs. Arizona had a very nice hit on a run blitz (14:20 3rd). Freshman All American in 2010. In the 2011 Arizona game had a great blitz showing elite speed then elite power as he blew up the RB block and in one quick motion took down Nick Foles for a would be sack but he was able to get it to a RBs feet for an incompletion (13:15 2nd). In the 2011 Texas A&M game had nice hit and tackle on RB shovel pass right after he caught it to force FG (1:55 1st). In the 2011 Iowa St. game he had a great pick 6 jumping into flat and deflecting ball on WR screen with his one hand batting it to himself and running +60 yds (1:13 1st). In the 2011 Oklahoma game he had perfect coverage on misdirection play with TE slipping out into the flat for INC, good rush hitting QB as he threw for INC, had a big hit on TFL getting off TE block and hitting RB in flat right after he caught it, good trailing TFL from weak side showing very good speed to track off tackle right, good pbu on WR dig route as he had a nice drop in zone coverage and got a hand on it showing quickness.

Notes: 2nd generation Tiger. Was the starting C in ’10 after he beat out T-Bob Hebert in spring camps. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. TAMU was very quick and fast surprising me on film when I first saw him. Very aggressive, tenacious blocker who likes to mix it up. Had a great block on DT Jonathan Mathis riding him 3 yds sideways and then falling on him opening a big hole in middle for 11 yd run (10:04 1st), pushed DT Eddie Brown Jr. past the whistle showing good strength and great tenacity (9:21 1st), and false start (1:56 4th). I was very impressed with him and already rate him as a 5th rounder who could easily move up to 2nd or 3rd round status 1/21/11. Enters the 2011 season ranked #50 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Oregon game had a bad snap as the QB was calling timeout but he snapped it anyways causing a fumble that Oregon recovered 15 yards downfield (1:14 1st), it wasn’t pretty but he did a good job keeping the attacking DT on his left shoulder on the right sweep keeping the hole open just long enough for the RB to get through for +10 yards (4:30 2nd), argued numerous times with Hebert after poor OL plays (1:40 2nd), poor job allowing DT penetration but luckily he was able to push him far enough outside to allow RB through the middle (13:32 3rd), and called for holding but was called for his RG’s hold (8:22 4th). He was pretty solid during the game but sure didn’t make it look pretty as he allowed penetration numerous times from Oregon’s smaller DTs but still able to keep them out of the play. In the 2011 Mississippi St. game allowed DT Josh Boyd immediate penetration on inside run that luckily wasn’t disrupted by it (11:47 1st), good block on DT Fletcher Cox who got initial penetration with his quickness but was subdued (8:46 1st), good block on Boyd turning him away from off tackle to the right (5:20 2nd), good recover on Boyd’s penetration to push him well past play in backfield (7:21 4th). He had a solid but hardly spectacular game vs. the two quality DTs and is slipping in my book to more of a 3rd or 4th round type 9/15/11. In the 2011 Florida game he allowed initial penetration vs. DT Dominique Easley but had elite recovery pushing him away from run play and pancaking him within 2 secs of play starting (6:42 1st), injured in 2nd Q with right ankle sprain and didn’t return.

Notes: #15 on ESPN 150 for 2011.  Early enrollee. Extremely tall, thin player who has made an impression immediately for the Irish as a true freshman. Reminds me of Aldon Smith with his elite height and ability to move inside to DT and dominate as much if not more than outside at DE. In the 2011 ND Spring Game had a very nice TFL crashing down the line on a run the other way (11:08 1st), lined up at DT and burst through line for a great TFL singlehandedly destroying the play (8:55 2nd), at DT he blew through RG Trevor Robinson and hit QB in 3 sec on shovel pass play (3:45 3rd), and had two great hustle plays at the end of the game getting a tackle 10 yards downfield and hitting the QB on a rush as time expired causing the interception (1:00 4th). Had 3 sacks halfway through his true freshman year showing the promise everyone sees. In the 2011 USC game had a very nice burst shooting around outside edge of RT for 4 sec hit on QB Matt Barkley as he threw it yet somehow the duck was completed (3:20 2nd).

Notes: True freshman in ’10 who played a lot. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. Texas A&M had a very good sack and FF showing elite speed and quickness to beat RT Jake Matthews to corner and duck under his arms (0:20 1st), good hit on special teams as he was the first player down and hit him at the 20 yard line (12:03 3rd), great pbu on 19 yd out vs. WR Uzoma Nwachukwu who got no separation (10:40 3rd), very good coverage on 4 yd TD fade with great throw and catch by Tannehill to Kenric McNeal (10:06 4th), elite ball skills and quickness on a diving int vs. Ryan Swopes 5 yd out (5:37 4th), and hit on TE and great ball skills again as he FF and somehow caught the ball as it fell from the TE’s hands-returned for a TD but personal foul took it back (3:02 4th).  Looks like a future star who I already would grade out as a 4th rounder 1/21/11. Took the coveted #7 (was #14) as well as the PR duties from Patrick Peterson for the 2011 season. Also is the gunner on the PR unit showing elite special teams versatility. In the 2011 Oregon game showed good speed in open field closing quickly on RB in the flat and throwing him out of bounds short of the first down (14:29 1st), good run support avoiding WR block to take down RB Kenjon Barner for TFL (6:22 1st), allowed 7 yd slant vs. Lavasier Tuinei but did tackle him hard and quickly (1:10 1st), first down on PR hitting RB Kenjon Barner for FF and picking it up on a good bounce to walk into the end zone on one of the weirder plays I’ve ever seen (14:47 2nd), talked big noise to Barner on the next PR showing his smack talking abilities (12:57 2nd), caused false start as he sped up to the line as a blitzer (7:20 2nd), jumped a route nearly getting a pick 6 on a RB in the flat (13:59 4th), blew past LT Weems on blitz for 3 sec hit on QB nearly ruining a big screen play (12:23 4th), and nice diving pbu on open 10 yd WR when he was playing off zone (6:23 4th). In back to back games in Cowboys stadium he has looked like by far the best defensive player for either team. He moves into the 1st round after this great performance 9/3/11. In the 2011 Mississippi St. game he got into it with a WR blocking him for offsetting personal fouls (1:40 1st), pancaked the WR blocking him and then made a nice tackle in open space against the RB (10:50 2nd), and good TFL on WR screen taking him down quickly on low hit (1:56 4th). They never attacked him all night going after Claiborn and others as he is really getting shutdown corner type respect.      After watching him dominate for a 3rd straight game and see his great tackling skills to go along with his great coverage skills, instincts, and special teams ability I am moving him up as my #1 CB in the entire country 9/20/11. In the 2011 Kentucky game he had a sack where he forced the fumble then got up and somehow had enough time to pick it up himself and run in for a TD. Already broke the LSU career forced fumble record of 8 and he is only halfway through his sophomore season! Has just incredibly strong hands that give him the ability to steal balls and hold onto ints without having a full grasp of the ball. In the 2011 West Virginia game had a nice blitz off the edge beating LT for would be 3 sec sack but quick RB screen already thrown (13:42 1st), was leading the trash talking against the WV WRs in pregame warmups showing a lot-maybe too much cockiness, tackled WR short of 1st on 3rd and 11 and stripped receiver of ball when he fought for more yards in a crazy play that just seems ordinary as he does it so much now (9:01 1st), downed ball at 1 yd line as the gunner on special teams, missed tackle in flat on comeback route vs. WR Stedman Bailey (9:50 2nd), bobbled PR but picked it up for +15 yd return (3:37 2nd), blew past blocker to tackle WR Tavon Austin but missed him allowing him out of bounds with clock running down (1:00 2nd), blitzed off edge and timed jump perfectly batting ball up in the air then catching it and running it 15 yds to the 1 yd line to setup a TD to end the half to completely change momentum and start the blowout (0:38 2nd), batted ball down on Hail Mary to end the half (0:00 2nd), beat for 72 yd post by Austin who showed elite speed to outrun him and safety for would be TD if the other safety didn’t force him to cut (2:30 3rd), and nice diving pbu on 10 yd out on 3rd and 4 near the end of a meaningless game showing his competitiveness as they were up by 26-reversed for completion (1:50 4th). In the 2011 Florida game he had a few big hits and good run supports in 1st half with the best being a diving tackle on QB Trey Burton after avoiding WR block on read option for short gain which he ended by smack talking (0:45 2nd), amazing int in end zone on 47 yd 9 route attempt vs. WR Andre Debose who didn’t have any separation essentially making it a jump ball which he dominated (12:10 4th). He has officially moved up to #2 on my Big Board only behind Andrew Luck as he is the greatest CB I have ever graded, at this point slightly ahead of Champ Bailey who I graded about a decade ago 10/05/11. In the 2011 Ole Miss game got called for PF on late hit out of bounds on KR coverage. He plays the game with a lot of mouth and is constantly on the edge with it sometimes coming back to bite his team. Came back the very next play with an aggressive pbu showing how it didn’t affect him at all. In the 2011 Arkansas game he had a 92 yd PR for a TD finally showing the elite PR ability the coaches said he had but that he had yet to display in a game. Also had a huge FF on RB Dennis Johnson who outweighed him by at least 30 lbs as it set up a late TD drive to give them a 21-14 lead at halftime after being down 14-0, had another great strip this time of the TE with it bouncing up in the air and right into his hands to start his return of about 15 yds-they were already up 24 though by this point (3:36 4th). Nicknamed Honey Badger. Suspended for the Auburn game in 2011 for a positive drug test along with Spencer Ware and Tharold Simon. Got burned twice deep by Da’Rick Rogers of Tennessee. In the 2011 Georgia game (SEC Championship) he had a 62 yd PR for a TD helping to bring them back from 10-0 down (5:50 2nd), recovered fumble of Murray’s setting up TD and 14-10 lead, had a +40 yd PR in 3rd Q that was actually more impressive as he juked or broke the arm tackles of at least 6 guys.

Notes: Brother of TJ McDonald at USC and wanted to go somewhere else to not being in his and his father’s shadow. Had 3 ints vs. Cal in 2011 earning Pac-12 DPOW. In the 2011 Oregon game (Pac-12 Championship) he had a very nice tackle of RB LaMichael James in space flipping him on his head, strong tackle on quick slant of RB/WR De’Anthony Thomas causing FF for TO (11:24 1st). In the 2011 Illinois game he was the best defender for them by far making numerous tackles, including TFLs, as well as a few PBUs. I’m excited about his future and think he is far superior to his brother TJ 1/4/12.

Notes: Tall, imposing looking safety who has the NFL look to him. In the 2011 Minnesota game had a big hit on the QB on a designed run (10:09 3rd), grabbed RB from behind at 2 yd line and embarrassingly dragged into the end zone (9:40 3rd), good hit on RB falling down (14:24 4th), looks like he had the coverage on WR on post and if so it was terrible coverage as he wasn’t 5 yards to him (10:35 4th). In the 2011 Notre Dame game he looked tall and somewhat stiff in coverage, allowed open 10 yd in vs. TE where he got turned around in his backpedal showing poor technique (14:28 2nd), okay tackle on RB after 10 yd run and showed solid technique but was hardly a big hit. After watching him in 2 games this year (Minnesota, ND) I finally saw what all the buzz was about as he had a great game vs. Stanford with numerous nice hits, though nothing huge, and very solid speed on the outside runs. Had a nice hit jumping over the pile on 3rd and 1 hitting RB in the air though they surprisingly called it a 1st (13:40 2nd), had a huge hit on WR coming over the middle to break up play but it was also dumb as he clearly launched himself, the WR was defenseless, and he aimed for his head so an easy call to give them a 15 yd PF penalty late in the game (2:20 4th).

Notes: #35 in ESPN 150 for ’09. In the 2011 SMU game had a nice 5 yd TD bowling over a defender at the goal line (12:15 1st), nice 7 yd run getting hit after 5 and pushing the pile for another few yards (2:04 2nd), great 16 yd run switching fields and showing above average speed to get the corner on the long cutback (0:27 3rd), and dropped easy drop off pass (13:05 4th). In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game had 20 yd run showing speed then a nice spin move at the end to get 6 more (12:30 2nd), 9 yd run with quick burst up inside (12:12 2nd), good 15 yd run on 2nd and 1 getting hit in backfield yet not going down and bursting off right tackle for a big run (10:50 2nd), and false start (13:00 4th). In the 2011 Arkansas game he had a weird play grabbing the ball on a run/pass option play from Tannehill and running into line for 3 yds yet not getting tackled in pile to stay up for 48 yd TD outrunning everyone (13:00 1st), good spin move in the hole to get 5 yds instead of 2 (10:30 1st), hit by two defenders in first 4 yards but bounced off one and spun off the other to stay up for 28 yd TD run (7:12 2nd), huge fumble when defender hit it from behind while he still was running (2:04 3rd).

Notes: Supposedly runs a 4.5 40. In the 2011 Oregon game had an amazing TFL bursting through the backside to track down LaMichael James as he was unblocked showing elite speed-actually injured LaMichael James on the play stepping hard on his ankle (0:37 2nd), and a great job beating the RB chip block to hit the QB at 3.5 sec to help disrupt the pass (2:33 3rd). In the 2011 Mississippi St. game showed good dexterity slightly avoiding chop block to keep at QB and get 3 sec pressure (9:07 2nd), great job leaping chop blocking RT but play was too quick to get even a pressure (8:15 2nd), and great speed rush for sack and FF that wasn’t recovered (0:40 4th). In the 2011 Georgia game (SEC Championship) he had batted ball at LOS leaping high in air to get it, had a tackle on PR for no return. In the 2011 Arkansas game he had 2 sacks (one on speed rush and one on inside stunt up the middle) and a big TFL in the red zone again showing his elite burst and closing speed. I have been a huge fan of his from day one yet had to top him out as a 4th rounder as he has elite physical skills but it wasn’t translating into production. Now that he finally is racking up sacks I will be moving him up into the 3rd round area 11/26/11. In the 2011 Alabama game #2 he nearly had a pbu or pick 6 dropping in coverage beautifully and attacking ball on 3 yd out to TE but missed allowing 8 yd catch and run, good inside penetration off RT to hit RB Trent Richardson in backfield for TFL (9:45 2nd), lost contain allowing 20 yd run to Trent right where he should have been, got off TE block to grab RB from behind when going through his hole and slam him to the ground, good set of edge vs. RT DJ Fluker forcing run inside to help for TFL, great set of edge on toss left right at him pushing TE back then shedding to grab RB Eddie Lacy and strongly throw him to ground (2:05 3rd). Future 1st rounder who should improve his productivity the next few years and will absolutely destroy the Combine so whether he even deserves it or not I’d be surprised if he isn’t a 1st rounder when he comes out 3/25/12.

Notes: #45 on ESPN 150 for 2011. A skinny, fast player who will need to bulk up for the pros but has plenty of time to do it. True freshman who in the 2011 South Carolina game had a 12 yd curl on 3rd and 9 vs. CB Stephen Gilmore (13:30 3rd), nice speed on 8 yd 0 route showing a good burst (15:00 4th), wide open 5 yd in for first down dropped (7:55 4th). In the 2011 Boise St. game had no separation vs. CB Jerrell Gavins on 9 route allowing int (4:20 2nd), great 51 yd TD on 9 route blowing past CB Jamar Taylor and had enough speed to beat S with the angle for a TD-he just flew down the field (10:18 4th), great speed on end around that looked like nothing was there but due to his speed he ended up getting about 15 yds (3:40 4th), ball went right through his hands on high but very catchable ball on 10 yd curl. In the 2011 Tennessee game he showed his outstanding speed on 9 route getting lots of separation vs. CB Izauea Lanier only not being a TD as ball underthrown (2:53 2nd), blew past CB Marsalis Teague for 65 yd catch and run on post-pulled hamstring on the play (5:50 3rd).

Notes: In the 2011 Miami game showed great speed running down the QB after a short gain (6:04 1st), people love his motor, good penetration getting 5 yards to the right for TFL on sweep left (5:25 1st), good tackle wading down the line showing great speed and mobility for a DT (3:47 1st), had impressive 4 sec sack on RG Brandon Linder taking outside shoulder and showing very good short area quickness to get to QB and take him down (7:50 4th). Looks like a future star 9/8/11.

Notes: #26 in ESPN 150 for ’09. In the 2011 Oregon game he pushed the LT far back into the backfield and into the RB for a TFL (11:21 3rd), dove for RB De’Anthony Thomas causing game changing fumble (8:17 3rd), and juked LT out of his boots going inside untouched to force throw too short on 3rd and 10 and cause a punt (2:51 3rd). In the 2011 Mississippi St. game had the rare 7 sec sack on hustle play from other side as QB scrambled and stupidly never threw it away (4:45 1st). In the 2011 Florida game had a 5 sec sack on rush where he won outside edge and came back around to QB who was scrambling (9:20 4th). In the 2011 Georgia game (SEC Championship) he pushed LT Cordy Glenn all the way back into QB forcing dump off pass short of 1st for punt. In the 2011 Alabama game #2 he had good push pull vs. LT Barrett Jones for pressure at 4.5 sec, never could get edge vs. Jones and continued attempting inside rushes or bull rushes all with little to no success.

Notes: Freshman All American in ’10. Was a pass rush specialist in ’10 and should replace Von Miller in ’11 as the full time starter. Very tall, lithe player with the frame to gain alot of weight and who has an NFL frame-not body yet. Suspended for the 2011 season opener due to his arrest in the offseason for possession of marijuana. In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game had a 4 sec sack vs. Adcock going hard outside then quick inside for sack (0;50 1st), dropped in coverage and read screen perfectly hitting RB Joseph Randle very hard immediately upon catching it (0:55 3rd), great trail on backside run actually going so fast that he overran RB forcing him inside to help and TFL (14:55 4th), lined up offsides (11:33 4th), won edge vs. Adcock but was a quick throw (11:25 4th), personal foul on 3rd down giving them another shot at a TD (8:05 4th). In the 2011 Baylor game he had 2.5 sacks, a few TFL, and another sack wiped out by offsides on the DT as he was dominant throughout in the blowout win.

Notes: In the 2011 Penn St. had a good hit on QB on blitz to force int (12:15 3rd), good hit on WR over the middle but still was a catch for a first down (6:02 4th), great play shadowing RB on 5 yd out then coming back in with speed to make a huge hit on the scrambling QB to knock his helmet off (4:22 4th). He actually looked like the best LB on the team, outplaying Hightower and Upshaw who are expected to be drafted early-though I think they both are overrated.

Notes: #4 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Had 2,851 yards in the regular season (2nd most yards ever by an SEC freshman QB). The more amazing stat though for ’10 is his 24/6 ratio. Freshman All American in 2010. I am probably higher on him than any other scout I have seen as he enters 2011 as the #8 player in the nation and #1 soph yet every time I watch him I see a smart, accurate QB with elite potential. I can’t tell you how amazing his freshman numbers were in certain areas (YPA at 8.92! TD/INT ratio at 24/8!) as you just don’t put up numbers like he did as a freshman, let alone a freshman in the SEC! Future top 5 pick 8/27/11. Broke his leg in HS and came back in state semis to help team win state title. Enters the 2011 season ranked #8 on my Big Board and the #3 QB behind only Luck and Barkley. In the 2011 Boise St. game had a perfectly thrown seam route to covered TE who just couldn’t catch the ball that went right by him (13:40 1st), perfectly thrown 15 yd out in stride, great athleticism avoiding two rushers with one having a straight shot at him to dive for 2 yds instead of -3, slightly underthrew 9 route making it a jumpball with defender having inside position for int (4:17 2nd), perfect throw to open TE on 12 yd out in stride, good 15 yd out to TE on rollout throwing perfect ball in traffic (9:30 3rd), took a costly sack knocking team out of FG range, great play rolling away from pressure and throwing perfectly to WR on 13 yd out that was just flat out dropped, perfect throw to TE staying tough in the pocket to take the hit and get 36 yd TD on 4th and 2 (1:24 3rd), elite throw on 51 yd TD throwing a fastball perfectly in stride with WR (10:18 4th), and threw too high to WR on 4th and 1 causing inc/turnover to end the game (2:34 4th). In the 2011 South Carolina game he overthrew by about 3 ft Tavarres King on 8 yd curl (4:37 1st), threw behind WR in a very tight window causing pbu and near int around goal line (13:14 2nd), great 23 yd QB scramble making 3 guys miss in the open field showing some good wiggle (6:00 2nd), perfect 34 yd TD throw to wide open WR (2:55 2nd), fumbled snap but he recovered (14:50 3rd), pick sixed by S Antonio Allen (1:55 3rd), and an incredibly accurate throw on 3rd and 1 going low and away on covered TE who was able to come up with an amazing hands catch as he was completely covered (7:33  4th). He had a mixed bag against a tough defense but hardly elite making him naturally get pulled down a bit in my rankings. I still love his arm, toughness, and leadership but think I might have overrated him a tad going into this season 9/30/11. In the 2011 Tennessee game he was a little off his first two throws being inc with each catchable but not perfect, good effort diving for 1st down but hit by MLB in air to come up just short (11:16 1st), outstanding throw as he was hit on untouched blitz throwing perfect ball for 11 yds on 3rd and 11 (1:10 1st), slightly overthrew post that had WR 1 step ahead and inside position (0:26 1st), showed great film study going to line to point out blitzers then audibling to a QB draw getting 8 yds on 3rd and 7 (14:56 2nd), overthrew wide open post again this time by even more (14:24 2nd), underthrew 9 route to wide open WR but still caught for +30 yd gain-probably worried about overthrowing it like he did the previous 2 (2:53 2nd), good throw to open post for 65 yd catch and run-best deep ball of the game (5:50 3rd), very good on late 3rd Q drive taking what the D gave him going to 3rd and 4th WRs and 2nd TEs spreading the ball around very well, poor decision throwing 9 route into double coverage for near pick (14:53 4th). In the 2011 LSU game (SEC Championship) he had a very costly fumble setting up their first offensive TD and a 14-10 deficit, threw a few deep 9 routes to Mitchell with one being a TD if he had just caught it-fell off his hands, one being a pbu by Tharold Simon and another being an INT by Simon, later had to press down 25 pts late in the game and threw a pick 6 to CB Morris Claiborne covering Mitchell on 8 yd curl. His receivers never got open for him and let him down in the first half especially with key drops (5 drops in the game) but he took a few womanly sacks dropping to the floor as rushers neared and skipped a few passes to his targets so the 42-10 loss was his fault as well.

Notes: #29 in ESPN 150 for ’10. True freshman who is the starting SS for the Bulldogs in ’10. Coaches rave about him and say he is a future All American. Is a long, tall rangy type safety who appeared to have great athleticism when I watched him in the ’10 Liberty Bowl vs. Central Florida. Had pass breakup when he leaped high in the air in his zone (11:40 1st) and big hit on WR over the middle (6:33 2nd). Walk on. Nicknamed big tree. In the 2011 Boise St. game showed great strength blowing through the shoulder of an OL trying to block him to help force TFL (12:42 1st), injured foot in 1st Q and didn’t return. Broke his foot early in the 2011 season and will miss multiple games. In the 2011 LSU game (SEC Championship) he had a nice TFL getting around OT on off tackle play on 3rd and 1 (2:00 2nd), had a sack on blitz that LG for some reason didn’t pick up-actually was intentional grounding (0:38 2nd). In the 2011 Michigan St. game he had the best game of any player with huge hits, a cleanup sack after QB avoided other rushers, a spectacular jumping tip of ball for game winning INT by teammate-no other LB could have tipped that ball (4:00 4th), and great range covering TEs and making plays on the sideline vs. edge runs. The kid has it all as he’s tall, strong, fast, has ridiculously long arms (’36 arms?) and instinctive. Early 2nd round 1/19/12.

Notes: Started as a true freshman. Freshman All American in 2010 with 18 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and 11.5 TFL. Also was named Freshman Pac 10 POY in ’10. In the 2011 Missouri game he showed great athleticism on QB read option covering both players for TFL (7:00 1st), very nice speed rush getting edge vs. LT and sort of held but not called settling for flushing QB from pocket, good trail play on 0 route by WR helping tackle for 1 yd, okay in coverage as they dropped him on zone blitz and nearly batted ball on in route (14:22 3rd), nice spin move vs. LT Justin Britt getting inside easily but fell down in move, great strength on bull rush vs. Britt getting pressure but QB already sacked (13:27 4th). In the 2011 Cal game he had a very good TFL throwing down the QB on a failed option left after stringing it out from his DE spot (4:18 2nd), had PF on late hit of QB that was valid, great job on end around staying home then fighting off QB block to tackle WR for 5 yd gain trying to strip the ball the entire time.

Notes: The Eagle commentator Robert Cessna says he is “the next Von Miller.” Outstanding in coverage often splitting out on WRs and doing a very good job. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. LSU beat WR Russell Shephard to inside to tackle RB for short gain (3:57 2nd), beat TE for no gain run showing very good quickness (7:56 4th). Future prospect 1/26/11. In the 2011 SMU game he was blocked completely out of the play allowing a 27 yd run right through his hole (4:10 1st), good pressure off edge getting past RT but being pushed back by RG who helped out (0:34 1st), got off WR block immediately and crashed in to trip RB Zach Line for 2 yd gain (15:00 2nd), good coverage on TE but still allowed 2 yd catch on 3rd and 1 (14:39 2nd), good pressure blowing through the RB block to hit QB at 3 sec and drag him down a few seconds later with help from teammates (4:14 2nd), and hit Line a few yards shy of first on shovel pass but couldn’t take him down allowing 1st down (9:33 3rd). In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game he sniffed out the draw play early and avoided RG block for tackle on RB Joseph Randle for no gain (5:10 1st), got 6 sec coverage sack that he fell right into as his extremely wide route around LT and RB worked out when QB rolled right into his path (0:11 1st), beat LT Nick Martinez for 4 sec sack on pure speed rush (0:00 2nd).

Notes: Talked shit to WR Da’Rick Rogers of Tennessee via Twitter before the 2010 game. Suspended against Boise St. in 2011. In the 2011 South Carolina game had a nice int undercutting WR Alshon Jeffrey’s route from his centerfielder spot (5:36 1st), recovered onside kick in stride and showed nice speed and instincts in open space for an additional 15 yds-yet taken back b/c he was offside (2:53 2nd), and good pbu from centerfield coverage helping on poorly thrown ball to Jeffrey (8:37 4th). In the 2011 Tennessee game he started the game leading the nation with over 1 int per game (missed Boise St. game), perfect coverage on 15 yd out forcing throw away (9:30 2nd), solid TFL helping clean up quick pitch gone wrong showing speed from safety spot (14:51 3rd). In the 2011 Michigan St. bowl game he had a near INT on post coming out of nowhere for pbu, had a few nice hits in run game, and had a great INT on post again coming out of nowhere to grab it to end the game (1st OT). He’s an absolute ball hawk who is returning for his senior year despite already having a late 1st round grade in my book 1/19/12.

Notes: In the 2011 Virginia game dropped into coverage then showed very good speed to zoom up to hit QB for TFL on scramble (13:57 1st), good job on delayed blitz avoiding RB’s pass pro to hit QB as he threw the ball (7:53 1st), great instincts to react quickly to the counter play and race in for a TFL (4:55 1st), and a very good job getting to right sweep faster than OLB Zach Brown who was closer-did miss tackle in space though (12:55 3rd). Far and away the superior player over his more heralded teammate Zach Brown as he is more instinctive, stronger, and doesn’t look to be much worse athletically. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game he showed elite speed racing through the middle to sack QB before he could even really start the option run (8:10 1st), met at QB for TFL on option with fellow LB (11:05 3rd), huge play avoiding OL blocker to tackle RB on shovel pass short of sticks to force punt (13:00 4th). Didn’t play in 2011 Louisville game with Fabby Desir taking his spot. Had ankle injury earlier in the year. In the 2011 Clemson game he showed good cover skills reacting well to nearly intercept but still pbu quick slant (7:57 1st), elite tackle for no gain shooting through hole, avoiding OL blocked and hitting the RB after he had only taken 2 steps showing outstanding instincts and speed for a play that wasn’t even a blitz but a standard formation (12:20 3rd).

Notes: Ranked #71 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. TAMU had a game turning int and +30 yd return setting up an easy TD right before the 1st half ended as he stepped in front of Ryan Swopes 8 yd cross (2:27 2nd). In the 2011 Oregon game had a nice strong take down of LaMichael James after he got the first down with his helmet getting ripped off and him not being too happy about it (14:42 1st), allowed 8 yd curl vs. De’Anthony Thomas (9:40 2nd), and picked up De’Anthony Thomas’ fumble returning it a few yards (8:15 3rd). In the 2011 Mississippi St. game dropped a lucky bounce on a deflected pass (5:09 1st), huge decleating hit on RB Vick Ballard for 8 yds on 3rd and 10 to force a punt (0:40 3rd). His father was a 3x All American hurdler at LSU. In the 2011 Florida game he showed great speed and aggressiveness attacking RB Chris Rainey on outside run for short gain (10:40 1st).

Notes: Was dominant in All American practices. Not the high profile player and lacks elite speed or size but has incredible quickness and anticipation. #15 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Had a great hit on Jacory Harris that caused a 31 yard int for a TD in the 38-34 loss in ’09. Intercepted a Max Hall pass and returned it 64 yards for a TD in their 54-28 win over BYU. Dropped an easy interception in their 28-21 loss to Boston College that probably would have changed the outcome yet overall played another very good game. Father was just released from prison before their ’10 bowl game. In the ’10 Chick Fila Bowl vs South Carolina had a great hit that FF (12:20 1st), a great strip FF on the great Ashlon Jeffrey (9:09 3rd), good pass defense vs. Jeffrey again (6:26 3rd), jumped a route almost picking off a WR screen (2:06 3rd), had a great pass breakup on 4th and 14 to end the game and earned Player of the Game honors. In the 2011 FSU Spring Game he put on a clinic with 5 tackles (1 being a big hit on Bert Reid-3:20 1st), 1 FF (big hit on WR in the flat-5:40 4th), 1 pbu, and 1 pick six for good measure when he jumped a route right before the end of the half (1:20 2nd). Enters the 2011 season ranked #30 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Clemson game he missed tackle on WR Sammy Watkins’s 0 route allowing 20 yds down the sideline (9:10 1st). Almost never noticed him which is a good thing as it showed he was being avoided but he rarely was put on Watkins probably due to the fact the coaching staff knows he couldn’t keep WR Kenny Stills in front of him vs. OU and would have even a harder time vs. Watkins. He’s an elite CB due to his ball skills, PR skills, and tackling ability but he is very scheme specific as he will have to be in a zone, cover 2 type. In the 2011 Florida game he was step for step with WR Andre Debose on 9 route for pbu (14:55 1st), easy INT in flat on horrible decision by QB, had a nice diving INT on another horrible throw and decision (12:58 2nd). In the 2011 Oklahoma game he avoided WR block to tackle WR Ryan Broyles on screen pass but hurt himself limping off the field as he twisted the ankle badly (13:43 1st), allowed 8 yd slant to WR Kenny Stills but showed great burst to ball, beat on 9 route then allowed to catchup on late throw but beat again by Stills this time on jump ball as he had great coverage and was all over him but his lack of height cost him the 38 yd TD which eventually was the game winner (7:01 4th). In the 2011 Notre Dame game he was never matched up against WR Michael Floyd with Rhodes getting the duty then Mike Harris when Rhodes was injured. This continues a pattern that started vs. Clemson when he never matched up against WR Sammy Watkins and is clearly an indication the coaching staff doesn’t trust him against the top wideouts.

Notes: ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year in ’10 as he led the ACC with 15 passes defended. Had an easy int on a long pass when he had perfect position (7:58 2nd). Freshman All American in 2010. Is a tall, powerful CB who is a multi-dimensional player already with 54 tackles and 2 sacks in 2010. A future top 15 pick 8/28/11. Enters the 2011 season ranked #14 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Clemson game he was beat on 9 route by WR Martavis Bryant that was inc but called on a borderline pass int call (9:18 1st), good job flying to the football getting WR Sammy Watkins down short of 1st to force 3rd down otherwise would have been another 5yds at least as LB missed tackle, allowed separation on 8 yd hitch vs. WR DeAndre Hopkins, great coverage on cross vs. WR Jaron Brown for inc (7:50 3rd). Barely noticed him in the 2011 Clemson game as he wasn’t thrown against very often. In the 2011 Oklahoma game good separation vs. WR Kenny Stills on 14 yd out, beat by Stills on 40 yd 9 route, great hit on FB Trey Millard getting best of goal line run block,  no separation vs. Stills on 9 route with safety getting INT.

Notes: Had 244 yards passing and 258 yards rushing including an 87 yard run that is one of the greatest highlights I have ever seen as he sliced thru the Notre Dame defense. First player ever to pass AND run for +1,500 yards in the same season. Was Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year in ’10, improving as a passer (2,316 62% 16/10) and continuing to excel as a runner (1,643 6.7 ypc 14 TD). Had 47, 72, and 87 yard runs in 2011 showing off his elite speed. His explosion is incredible and I continue to say he is the rare college QB who should be a 1st rounder down the road as a WR (Matt Jones) as he is clearly a 4.2 runner with elite moves. In the ’10 Gator Bowl vs. Mississippi St. made KJ Wright, a future starting LB in the NFL, look downright slow (12:40 1st). Didn’t have his best game that day but even against NFL caliber D prospects he showed his elite speed. Enters the 2011 season ranked #15 on my Big Board. In the 2011 Notre Dame game he showed nice speed on QB keeper for 12 yds down the sideline (1:00 1st), one of the worst throws I’ve ever seen tossing a RB screen 5 ft over his head for an int by a CB! (0:00 1st), great speed on 18 yd QB read option (13:55 2nd), poor throw on deep post that was slightly open (13:24 2nd), not even close on 9 route overthrowing it by nearly 10 yds (4:45 2nd), elite speed on 39 yd QB read option outrunning LBs and DBs alike (10:45 3rd), poor throw on open 15 yd out causing tough catch that wasn’t made (7:30 3rd), terrible int into triple coverage over the middle on the post (6:10 3rd), great play being held by DE yet still able to throw a 30 yd strike to WR that eventually was a 77 yd catch and run (2:00 3rd), and way too high on open post throwing 5 yds over his head (1:43 4th). In the 2011 Ohio St. game he took a read option and made a LB miss in middle of field to get sideline open streaking 41 yds for easy TD-elite speed even against an OSU D (9:19 1st), had a 21 yd read option keeper up the middle that just astounded me as he is so fast the LBs had no chance on a play up the middle! (3:17 3rd), had 10 yd scramble on broken play dodging 3 defenders showing his elite quickness even in close quarters-maybe a RB? (11:05 4th). He ended the game 14-17 3/0 and 170 yds rushing. It doesn’t prove he is an NFL caliber QB but shows his leadership and clutchness as OSU had beaten them 7 straight times and he had one of his better games as a player.

Notes: Freshman #30 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Got into a twitter spat with Bacarri Rambo before the 2010 Georgia game. He is from GA and initially committed to them before switching to Tennessee. In the 2011 Georgia game had a great catch on 12 yd out that he got lit up on but held on for conversion on 4th and 10 (8:53 2nd), good catch on 13 yd out as ball a little behind him (0:11 2nd), good speed on shallow cross vs. LB getting lots of separation on 13 yd gain (8:01 3rd), nice 15 yd out stepping out immediately to save clock (5:58 4th), 17 yd in.  Soph He beat CB Tyrann Mathieu deep twice in the 2011 LSU game-the only guy other than Tavon Austin of WV who looked to be able to get anything on him all year. In the 2011 Florida game he broke tackle on short slant by CB De’Ante Saunders getting 1st down on 3rd and 10 showing great strength (7:55 1st), good job following Bray’s direction on scramble drill to get open for 20 yd catch and run after he escaped from the pocket-took 3 guys to bring him down again showing strength (3:00 2nd), nice extended hands catch on quick slant again fighting for more yards and tough to bring down (10:30 3rd), dropped perfect throw on the run by Bray in between two defenders (9:12 3rd), nice job catching and hanging on to perfectly thrown 19 yd post for TD as he was in between two defenders and hit (4:31 3rd), great job playing defender batting away poorly thrown ball from CB (3:00 3rd), beat CB Marcus Roberson on quick slant causing pass int (3:23 4th), and caused holding call on Roberson (2:25 4th).

Notes: True freshman who is big and fast and plays as their #3 CB. In the 2011 Virginia game had good coverage on Kris Burd yet still allowed pinpoint pass for 19 yds (3:40 2nd), little separation allowed by Burd on 15 yd in but gambled unsuccessfully undercutting throw (6:20 4th). In the 2011 Georgia Tech game had a nice special teams tackle. In the 2011 Clemson game he was beat on 42 yd 9 route TD by WR Sammy Watkins (7:16 3rd), showed very good tackling ability in run support.

Notes: A big, thick guy without too much fat who seems to move well but looks more 2 gap than 1 gap. In the 2011 Illinois game he showed good strength pushing through OG and LT Jeff Allen getting easy TFL when QB fumbled snap (10:00 1st), great anchor job vs. Allen not moving for multiple sec then shedding him for tackle of no gain on inside run, showed very minimal pass rush-is thick and strong but not really explosive, no rush in 4 sec vs. C, good penetration immediately getting into backfield but bit on play action going for RB when QB had it on rollout, showed a rare pass rush beating RG on edge to curl around forcing pressure of QB-still looked slow, pushed RG into backfield on 3rd and 1 but RB went to other side, great penetration but clobbered RB on read option with QB keeping it, weak 5 sec sack slowly getting off LG for -8 yds-actually reinforces my belief he won’t be a pass rush threat (1:22 3rd), good shuck of C immediately at snap forcing QB to scramble out of pocket, solid rush winning hands battle with RG then getting into backfield and diving for 4 sec sack as QB scrambled (10:43 4th), great penetration getting off C block for TFL of -4 (2:00 4th). Had a good game shutting down their run game and getting 2 sacks with neither looking NFL caliber it does show his hustle, strength, and hand fighting ability. He is a tall, thick, strong 2 gap DT who works hard, doesn’t have a huge belly like most, and seems like a good lunch pail type player. That being said he isn’t a beast against the run like a Phil Taylor type and has no real burst or pass rush potential. Probably is a 10 year starter at DT who is dependable but not flashy or dominant. His best asset in the pros will be his strength, hustle, and hand fighting ability as he is a good technician. 3rd round 12/3/11. In the 2011 Western Michigan game he had a good push on LG then shed him to hit QB hard for TFL on designed run, good rush getting inside on RT and forcing QB to scramble out of pocket, didn’t even try to rush from DE spot-possibly out of shape (13:45 3rd), great strength holding ground on double team to tackle RB for 4 yds, nice bull rush of RT but ball thrown quickly, called for PF throwing QB to ground after ball thrown, batted ball at LOS.

Notes: Ranked #91 in ESPN 2010 HS Class. True freshman who played a lot in ’10. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. Texas A&M had poor coverage on 10 yd slant vs. WR Brandal Jackson (8:05 2nd), easy int as WR ran wrong route giving him an uncontested easy catch (4:07 2nd), good hit on 7 yd hitch vs. Brandal Jackson (1:01 2nd), and good coverage on Jeff Fuller 9 route forcing him out of bounds and was step for step with him (13:30 4th). Switched from #26 to #24 for the 2011 season. In the 2011 Oregon game had a good pbu swinging around the WR to break up the play (10:33 1st), easy TFL on WR screen that was thrown too high forcing WR to jump for it (5:10 1st), allowed 7 yd catch but WR dropped the slant partially b/c of his hit (0:50 1st), and had a great int on a deep jump ball that he had an inside angle on but that was still difficult as the WR played DB pretty well (13:57 2nd). In the 2011 Mississippi St. game had perfect coverage with ball hitting him in the chest yet unable to hold on for some reason for pbu (5:09 1st), great coverage on WR Chris Smith who still held on to short slant and actually dragged Simon 3 yds for the first down on 3rd and 18! (7:08 2nd). In the 2011 Arkansas game he had a great pbu on 9 route vs. WR Cobi Hamilton (9:38 4th) and was very tough to pass against the entire game which surprised me a bit as I thought Arkansas’ 4 WRs would take advantage of him. He is looking more and more like a legit NFL CB 11/26/11. In the 2011 Georgia game (SEC Championship) he was beat a few times in the 1st half but had a great pbu on post vs. WR Malcolm Mitchell going stride for stride and batting perfectly thrown ball away (0:59 2nd), no separation vs. Mitchell on 9 route having perfect coverage and winning jump ball INT (8:10 3rd).

Notes: Shayne Skov Stanford #11 Jr. Ended the regular season with 72 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Ended the Orange Bowl with 10 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 1 pass breakup: had perfect coverage on a TE wheel route (3:17 2nd), sack for -1 yard when Taylor started scrambling out of pocket (0:42 2nd), great coverage again on pass defense vs. Andre Smith (2:40 3rd), great special teams tackle as he was the first 1 down and brought down the KR with momentum in space (6:00 4th), hard hit on a blitz sack (5:36 4th), very slow drag down coverage sack (1:30 4th). Is returning to school but already has a 4th round grade for me 1/4/11

Notes: #30 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Was dominant in All American practices. In4 the 2011 Boise St. game had a big hit on short hitch to WR right in front of him (10:34 2nd), easy int on jumpball in middle of field way showing great instincts to leave his WR to defend TE corner route (5:33 2nd), poor tackle on toss left at him getting juked out of position and finally stiff armed by RB Doug Martin allowing 7 yd TD (11:04 3rd), face mask on RB trying to pull him down. In the 2011 Tennessee game he lined up at WR getting end around showing speed for 15 yds (13:00 1st), good 3 yd carry having to make a spin move in the backfield just to get that (9:56 1st), solid job getting off WR cut block on a WR in motion screen to dive at WR knocking him down saving at least 5 yds (12:40 2nd), big hit on 12 yd out but ball was still caught for 1st on 4th and 10 (8:53 2nd). In the 2011 South Carolina game allowed 34 yd TD to WR Alshon Jeffrey but actually had pretty good coverage (6:45 2nd).

Notes: Tall, skinny guy who looks more like a WR than a QB. Has a solid throwing motion and a very quick release with the ball jumping out of his hand. Two of his top 3 targets play ball in HS with him giving him great familiarity with them. In the 2011 LSU game had delay of game, fastball 10 yds on hitch that was a little high but relatively on target (9:01 1st), rolled right and threw ball well out of bounds attempting 9 route, threw another fastball but horribly thrown as he was trying a back shoulder toss that needed less RPMs on it and to be more accurate, very nice 12 yd curl with perfect accuracy and timing-NFL throw, great throw to WR in traffic but bounced off his hands for int that wasn’t Smith’s fault at all (4:35 1st), bobbled shotgun snap and forced to fall on it, quick release off snap on quick slant with CB blitzing untouched-showed great composure (13:40 2nd), poor throw out of bounds over their head with blitzer in his face, threw 9 route well out of bounds, nice job staying patient in the pocket then shooting a dart 8 yds with just a flick of his wrist showing elite strength, good vision going to second read and pump faking first for 12 yd TD (8:45 3rd),  delay of game, amazing +30 yd throw on 71 yd catch and run perfectly place over the shoulder of WR who had a step on the safety-NFL throw (2:21 3rd), 7 yd run on 3rd and 10 setting up manageable 4th down as down by 13 with 1 Q left, threw poor ball into the dirt on short hitch for turnover on 4th down, terrible fumble on snap going right to LSU DE (8:02 4th).

Notes: Has the quickness, strength, and frame to be a perfect 3-4 DE. In the 2011 Penn St. game had a batted pass getting in the passing lane of the WR screen on his quick burst upfield (12:00 1st). In the 2011 Florida game he had good bull rush hitting QB hand for INC as he threw it (8:42 2nd). In the 2011 Auburn game he showed good athleticism getting 4 sec sack shucking LG away (12:02 1st).

Notes: In the 2011 Oklahoma game St. he had half step on CB Broderick Brown on 9 route but ball barely overthrown for INC, lots of separation on 11 yd curl vs. Brown who gave big cushion, beat CB Justin Gilbert on 15 yd out with solid separation, no separation vs. Gilbert on 9 route for pbu and almost INT, beat Gilbert on 10 yd out, no separation vs. Gilbert on 9 route allowing INT. In the 2011 Texas game he took short hitch and broke a tackle nearly getting first on 2nd and 10 when nothing was there, huge decleating hit on S Blake Gideon trailing crossing play, big separation on pump fake 19 yd 9 route TD vs. CB Carrington Byndom (15:00 2nd), no separation vs. Byndom but great job working back shoulder for 20 yd TD-good timing and hands-called for pushing off (12:45 2nd), miscom with Jones for INC, good catch on short fade but ball knocked out of his hands by defender, dropped wide open 20 yd pass that was deflected to defender for almost a huge INT, elite 15 yd TD fade route vs. Byndom as he got off line so quick I had to replay to check if he false started then got separation and caught ball on outstretched hands for perfect timing (0:30 2nd). In the 2011 Florida St. game he had a nice sliding catch on 8 yd slant vs. CB Greg Reid, good separation vs. Xavier Rhodes on 14 yd out, beat Rhodes on 40 yd 9 route holding on despite getting big hit to his head by safety at end of play, no separation vs. Rhodes and safety on 9 route for INT by safety, 15 yd slant with 8 YAC, beat Reid deep on 9 route but ball underthrown forcing him to beat him again this time on jump ball that he held onto showing very strong hands to come down with it with Reid all over him for the 38 yd TD to win the game (7:01 4th).

Notes: Is a tall, thin player who looks like a thick WR and not a TE. I was shocked when I saw his measurables b/c he hides his 245 very well and looks like he could add weight down the road. In the ’10 Sugar Bowl vs. Arkansas had a nice 16 yd misdirection play making him wide open for an easy dump off that showed his very good speed, later was stacked and shed easily by Jerry Franklin exposing his average strength (0:49 3rd). In the 2011 Nebraska game had no separation vs. CB Andrew Green on 3rd and 7 forcing FG, great speed for a TE catching TE screen behind line at 38 yd line turning and running in a straight line for a TD with no one catching him (1:55 1st). In the 2011 Michigan game he had a 35 yd gain finding the soft spot in zone and turning it upfield for most of the yards.

Notes: Big CB who I noticed multiple times in the ’10 Independence Bowl vs. Air Force as he filled the run very well. Against Air Force the run support is about all you can scout but he looked tall, strong, and fast and might be a prospect in the future 12/27/10. In the 2011 Utah game he had great coverage and pbu on +40 yd post hitting ball with perfect technique (12:38 1st). He never again was thrown at showing that Utah is a run oriented team and they respected his coverage. In the 2011 North Carolina game had perfect coverage on 9 route vs. Jheranie Boyd for inc (4:50 1st), great run recognition getting off WR block for -3 TFL on quality RB Giovanni Bernard (14:00 2nd), allowed quick slant for 5 yds vs. WR Dwight Jones but couldn’t tackle him before he made 7 1/2 on 3rd and 8-barely forcing punt, very nice hit vs. Jones on shallow cross decleating him-stupidly called a personal foul (8:40 3rd), missed tackle on Jones 8 yd out with fellow defender cleaning up, had a game changing int playing zone and going away from short receiver to step in front of Jones as middle receiver (12:00 4th). In the 2011 Virginia game he had a huge pick 6 bringing life to his team down 14-0 before then-stepped in front of WR on 12 yd out (8:27 2nd).

Notes: Didn’t notice him last year as a freshman (19 172 1) yet he has become the Aggies #2 WR behind Fuller and ahead of quality players like Tannehill and Uzoma. Has oustanding quickness and run after the catch ability as seen on his 28 yard TD reception where he avoided 2 tacklers and then dove head first into the end zone just ahead of others. Not sure if he will continue to develop as his skills do seem pretty developed but he could become a late round slot receiver type. In the ’10 Cotton Bowl vs. LSU had a great blind side block on Tannehill’s QB run decleating a guy (6:50 1st), good 15 yd comeback vs. poor Peterson coverage (9:43 2nd), great catch on 15 yd back shoulder throw vs. great Peterson coverage (9:23 2nd), good 21 yd WR screen showing his future role in the NFL as he has very good quickness and short area speed making him a good candidate for a slot receiver (1:13 2nd). In the 2011 SMU game had a great catch on a 15 yd catch that was very low and almost hit the ground (2:45 1st), called for holding negating 18 yd run (13:49 2nd), good 9 yd WR screen but hit hard out of bounds (9:30 2nd), and an amazing 19 yd catch on intentional low and away ball by Tannehill as he wasn’t really open at all (2:25 2nd). RB in High School who runs a 4.4 40 per coaches. In the 2011 Oklahoma St. game had great pluck on the run turning it upfield with lots of room for 27 yds (8:00 1st), wide open in middle of zone for 27 yd catch and run avoiding two tacklers (3:12 1st), good quickness on 8 yd WR screen bursting through small hole near sideline after other WR blocked for him (11:12 2nd), and a huge 25 yd catch holding on after a punishing hit by S Markelle Martin (13:21 4th). In the 2011 Arkansas game had a huge 44 yd catch and run on 0 route that he broke open by jumping over a pile of defenders for tons of room (10:30 1st).

Notes: Was star at All American practices. Expected to be a star from day 1. #2 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Did not play in the 2011 Spring Game except in non contact situations. Real thick linebacker with solid speed who looks like a pure MLB. In the 2011 South Florida game he was not very noticeable and at times looked bad like on the 4th and 1 where he chose the wrong hole then fell down while sifting through the lines (10:01 2nd), solid sack on blitz where he avoided the RB cut block but the sack was really due to the DE forcing QB BJ Daniels to step up in the pocket (8:02 2nd), solid job shedding an OL block and running to cleanup the play (2:48 2nd), good job again handling OL, sifting through the lines, and hitting RB in hole down the line-yet not hitting too hard (2:07 2nd). I was hardly impressed by the big kid as he didn’t have great speed, instincts, or hitting ability and to me looks like a 4th or 5th round type but this does come after only 1 scouted game 9/6/11. In the 2011 USC game was solid getting off OL block for 8 yd tackle but RB had basically fallen down anyways, solid tackle on run right at him where he wasn’t blocked, looked slow in open space getting juked by QB Matt Barkley who then picked up 5 yds (8:52 1st), missed tackle on RB Mark Tyler in his hole allowing 7 yd gain on 1st and goal at the 10! (7:00 1st), easily blocked by FB on 5 yd run for 1st, couldn’t get off OL block barely missing Tyler as he dove for his feet allowing 10 yd run right up the middle, beat in zone coverage by WR Robert Wood for 5 yd TD (1:01 1st), ran into wrong hole allowing huge hole up the middle for 9 yds (11:15 2nd), good job standing up blocker helping line stay strong on 4th and 1 for turnover on downs (10:10 2nd), solid tackle on 6 yd run going to one hole then sliding to the other to make stop but only after 1st on 2nd and 6, poor blitz getting 4.5 sec pressure but caught in OL briefly, beat by TE on 10 yd TD but barely overthrown by Barkley-showed poor awareness that he was supposed to cover him giving separation immediately (4:06 2nd), showed good speed shooting through hole on toss left but couldn’t make TFL allowing 11 yd run (2:43 2nd), very solid tackle in coverage helping 1 CB then coming around to make tackle on quick slant on other side of field (13:33 3rd), missed another tackle this time grabbing RB in backfield AND having help from DL yet missed him when he spun allowing YAC (3:25 4th). Once again I watched a game of his where he missed numerous tackles, had no big hits, made no major plays, and was part of a defense that the opposing offense ran right at all night long. This guy is very overrated 10/25/11. Coming back for senior year. In the 2011 Florida St. game he had good speed getting out to dump off in flat hitting RB at 2 yd gain and getting FF (9:10 1st), solid rush up middle hitting QB but missing sack in kill zone with teammate cleaning up, solid 3 yd tackle in hole, strong hit on WR after 4 yd dump off-not a kill shot but a hard hit, solid coverage but barely got down WR tripping him at last second to avoid missed tackle on hitch, elite coverage on short hitch with perfect technique batting ball with left hand nearest ball for pbu (10:15 4th). He looked faster and had fewer missed tackles and missed reads than in previous games. I still don’t see what all of the fuss is about but he’s a thick, strong, hard hitting LB who right now looks like a 3rd-4th rounder 12/29/11.

Notes: In the 2011 Washington game had easy tackle for short gain going unblocked off edge on inside run, good discipline not biting on end around for tackle on QB run of 1 yd, tight coverage on TE 9 route, good TFL shooting gap hitting RB as he took handoff (11:10 3rd), good job beating TE down block inside to get another TFL on very next play, beat LT Senio Kelemete on spin move inside but QB scramble away, PF with hit to head of QB.

Notes: #16 on ESPN 150 for 2011. Nicknamed Black Mamba by Snoop Dogg. Ran fastest prep 200m (20.6 sec) in nation during 2010. Beat out Lache Seastrunk for 3rd RB on a loaded depth chart with LaMichael James and Kenjon Barner ahead of him. Chose Oregon over USC at the last minute on signing day. Has been amazing in spring practice supposedly. In the 2011 LSU game had a good 10 yd curl vs. S Eric Reid (9:40 2nd), good 7 yd catch on 3rd and 7 showing great hands on ball that was low and showing outstanding speed and quickness as his route looked NFL caliber (7:50 2nd), very nice first career carry for 5 yards showing surprising strength for a kid weighing 165 (8:50 3rd), had a game changing fumble that was returned almost to the goal line for a soon to be TD (8:17 3rd), followed with another game changing fumble that he was barely hit on when kick returning (6:20 3rd), good 6 yd catch then he broke CB Morris Claiborne’s tackle for an additional 8 yards or so (10:48 4th), and got meaningless 3 yd TD run with a few seconds left in game and LSU’s defensive coordinator having taken off his headset (0:17 4th). In the 2011 Stanford game he had another huge fumble on a hit that barely touched the ball, later somewhat redeemed himself showing truly elite speed on 41 yd TD of RB screen as he caught it and just hit an extra gear that was DeSean Jackson like (3:00 2nd). In the 2011 UCLA game (Pac-12 Championship) he showed his elite quickness on quick slant but fumbled ball for TO-his only weakness continues (11:26 1st).

Notes: #103 in ESPN 150 for ’09. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game he underthrew 33 yd catch on 9 route that was open for a TD though to be fair he was being pressured and on the run (13:23 1st), threw ball 5 yds too high on cross forcing punt, overthrew 12 yd out by 5 yds, easy 9 yd TD to open WR (4:23 2nd), had a dart +30 yds downfield in stride on deep slant that the WR took for a 63 yd TD (0:53 2nd), another dart on the money this time on 9 route with defender very close to him showing his elite arm strength again for 30 yd gain (10:25 3rd), great strength on QB run on 3rd and 1 from the 11 where he pushed through the pile for the TD! (0:40 3rd), had about 7 yds on QB sneak on 3rd and 1 again showing his huge frame. He is a very raw player but the guy is huge, has a cannon, makes tough yards on short yardage runs, and seems to be the leader of that team. He could flame out as his accuracy is a big question mark but if he progresses it wouldn’t surprise me if he became a 1st rounder in 2014 11/15/11.

Notes: Had an off-field incident punching a UT law student during a basketball game. Charged with Class A misdemeanor, assault-bodily injury. The story made him sound like a major punk. In the 2011 Texas Spring Game had a very nice hit on RB crashing the box (8:28 1st). In the 2011 Oklahoma game he had a blatant PI on WR Ryan Broyles who beat him deep on seam route, perfect coverage vs. Broyles on 9 route for INC on 4th down for TO, great speed and aggressiveness as he was in off coverage yet saw the draw and shot upfield dive tackling RB for 5 yd loss (6:34 4th), great job playing nickel LB and jumping short hitch batting ball down for INC but nearly getting pick 6.

Notes: #39 on ESPN 150 for 2011. Has started off the year incredibly with 2 TDs against defending champ Auburn and is the talk of college football after only 3 games. Broke 3 records (catches, yards, TDs) for freshman in the Auburn game. In the 2011 Florida St. game he showed his elite speed catching 0 route with defenders all around but breaking CB Greg Reid’s tackle and streaking 20 yds down sideline for what would have been 3 yds for most players (9:10 1st), great 24 yd TD vs. zone showing surprising polish as he went 2/3 speed on route then seeing opening he burst through it getting to full speed as he caught it so he could easily get into end zone on delayed rout slant (7:52 1st), even on a 3 yd end around he still amazes me as his speed is so effortless-also showed strength getting hit by CB and it barely nudging him out of bounds, great quickness on 4 yd hitch avoiding LB who had a clear shot on him for an extra 2 yds (4:16 1st), outstanding catch on 15 yd comeback on QB scramble catching the ball and toe tapping as he fell out of bounds showing elite hands and agility-called back for holding on OL (1:40 2nd), 7 yd WR screen showing good moves to avoid defenders as little was there (14:50 3rd), great pluck and run showing elite hands on slant (5:27 3rd), beat CB Mike Harris on 9 route but ball underthrown for pbu (14:46 4th), separated vs. Harris on 9 route then showed his good strength breaking tackle and outrunning S with angle for 62 yd TD (13:10 4th), forced facemask on 0 route vs. LB due to quickness. With his speed, quickness, and hands he is an absolute handful in the open field yet what really impressed me was his route running, his strength, and his attitude as he is the exact opposite of the diva type WR that the 2011 class represents (Blackmon, Floyd, Wright a little bit). It might seem premature but as he is neck and neck with the other two studs at the top of the WR list his elite intangibles put him over the top and already gets him crowned the #1 WR in the nation 10/13/11. In the 2011 South Carolina game he dropped a 59 yd TD on 9 route that he was 3 yds past everyone on (6:02 1st).

Notes: In the 2011 Oklahoma game he stacked and shed RT for 2 yd tackle on RB inside run, good stack and shed of LT Donald Stephenson for no gain tackle on off tackle to his side, elite TFL pushing RT back 3 yds immediately then shedding him and dive tackling RB for as good of a run stopping play as you will see-his strength is far superior to any OU OL (7:08 2nd), showed strength tackling for 1 yd gain RB with just an arm tackle, got pressure again on RT forcing throw away otherwise would have sacked QB-also was block in back by RT that they didn’t call, great jump off snap to blow past Stephenson for 3 sec sack forcing punt (10:33 3rd). In the 2011 Clemson game he showed poor instincts completely getting fooled on read option handoff not even near the ball carrier (8:55 1st), good run support vs. LT Phillip Price pushing him back and making tackle on RB for no gain (1:20 2nd), great hands catching ball on fluke toss by QB as he fell for pick 6 (13:45 3rd), no rush on RT Landon Walker for 2 sec but good push pull move got him around as QB threw ball. In the 2011 Florida game he barely missed QB diving at his ankles as he scrambled away, avoided cut block by LT to stay on feet and bat ball at LOS nearly getting INT on deflection, no movement vs. LT Chaz Green on bull rush.

Notes: In the 2011 Michigan game he was pancaked by C David Molk after being initially doubled, beat Molk after 3 sec nearly getting sack but QB Denard Robinson got out of his 5 sec potential sack (9:00 1st), good job pushing his way through C, RG, and RB who all half heartedly blocked him to get QB pressure forcing INC-called for PF on late hit though (9:03 2nd), great hustle attacking the OL the entire time eventually helping get tackle on QB scramble. In the 2011 Georgia game he had a nice TFL blowing by C Ben Jones, had good bull rush of LG getting near QB and batting ball in backfield (0:03 1st), good push of RG then shed getting TFL along with LB. Reminds me of Sylvester Williams in that he is a big, fat guy who looks like a two gap space eater until the snap where you see very underrated athleticism to go along with his huge size and strength advantage. He was more productive than DT Jerel Worthy in 2 of their games I scouted. 3rd round 1/19/12.

Notes: As a true freshman I noticed him in the ’10 Compass Bowl (first career start) as he laid a big hit on Kentucky QB Morgan Newton (235 lbs) and has the body of an NFL CB as a true freshman! Coaches say he is a natural CB with great quickness and hips. Future prospect for sure 1/9/11. In the 2011 West Virginia game he looked big and fast playing bump and run following WR Stedman Bailey around most of the time, had great bump knocking WR out of bounds ruining play (7:36 1st), good job getting around WR block to help on TFL of dump off pass in flat to RB forcing punt, great coverage on WR Ivan McCartney both on initial route and on comeback on scramble drill getting pbu, good jump on WR screen on 4th and 4 but slipped off tackle of Bailey yet safety cleaned up, hit TE hard and stripped him for FF on what was a huge TO (11:18 4th). He looked the part of a shutdown college CB with size, strength, speed, and length. The Mountaineers went away from him all night and he was a large reason their passing game wasn’t in sync. He looks like a future 1st rounder who already gets a late 2nd/early 3rd round grade from me 12/1/11.

Notes: A massive guy who definitely has an NFL look to him and a Marty B type frame as he is 270 lbs and could easily add another 15 lbs. In the 2011 Penn St. game had a nice catch on a bullet for a TD as he sat in a zone (0:26 1st), solid body control catching it on the sidelines and pausing to show ref he had it in control before stepping out (14:50 3rd), great catch on jump ball thrown perfectly by QB McCarron (6:17 3rd). He has incredibly soft hands for a man his size and looks like a future 1st or 2nd rounder depending on how fast he runs 9/16/11.

Notes: A big, fat DT who looks to be more run stopper than quick penetrator type. In the 2011 Louisville game he showed very good quickness beating LG off the snap before he could be blocked for 3 yd TFL getting RB at handoff (10:57 2nd), RB ran into him on sweep right and knocked Williams on his butt?, very good penetration vs. C flushing QB out of the pocket (0:20 3rd), outstanding 3.5 sec sack bursting off the snap and getting by C while showing great tackling skills in the kill zone knocking QB down easily (6:15 4th), batted ball at LOS. I was very impressed with Sylvester in this game and hadn’t noticed him in previous UNC games. He has a great combination of quickness and speed to go along with his strength that you would expect from a 6’3 320 lb guy. In the 2011 Georgia Tech game he had a nice TFL getting outside edge vs. LG then showing dexterity to dive around LG as QB trying to scramble up the opening in middle to trip him for short loss (10:21 3rd). In the 2011 Clemson game he stacked and shed the C then ripped down the QB for a two yard gain throwing him down fiercely by the neck showing elite speed and again very good agility for a guy his size (10:10 2nd), nice spin move on C getting right edge but was 3 step drop. In the 2011 Missouri game he had a good move swimming OG immediately but QB was on rollout, good quickness beating LG block instantly then weaving through traffic to tackle RB for 2 yd gain in a different hole, good job getting around C then pushing LG back collapsing pocket, great burst off ball showing elite quickness off snap pushing RG and C back forcing run outside as he was 4 yds deep immediately (3:25 4th), offsides.

Notes: All-American in ’10. Tall and skinny who needs to gain some muscle. In the 2012 BYU game he had no separation vs. CB Preston Hadley for INC, unable to get low ball on 10 yd curl, spectacular balancing act and highpointing of the ball at back of endzone at end of 1st half for 13 yd TD-came back for holding on OL (0:12 2nd), solid moves in open field but isn’t that fast-more a possession type, no separation vs. CB Jordan Johnson who had INT and nearly got pick 6-not the best route-somewhat lazy on play, beat defense deep for 46 yd catch along sideline a yd from end zone-elite body control (came back on holding), has a little bit of a temper on him but somewhat valid as his best two plays taken from him on holds. A 1st round talent for sure with elite body control and hands yet has some temperament issues and isn’t that strong or fast so likely a late 1st type and not a Top 10 talent.

Notes: People questioned his toughness against Alabama as he ducked on throws or ran early from the pocket. In the 2011 Texas A&M game had a terrible first two series getting down 14-0 quick but responded on 3rd drive with very accurate 20 yd out on 3rd and 15 (6:45 1st), didn’t see CB blitz from his side getting leveled-that’s on QB (4:30 1st), great side arm throw avoiding pressure and stepping up for pinpoint throw for 10 yds (3:15 1st), good 68 yd TD catch and run seeing WR Jarius Wright streaking down middle of field for easy throw (2:30 1st), delay of game (10:17 2nd), overthrew open WR in back of end zone forcing FG (3:30 2nd), coach found a hole in Aggies defense and they exploited it with +200 yds passing to Wright with 80% coming off the same play! Important to remember this when looking at his gaudy stats. Miscommunication on back shoulder throw for inc (9:50 3rd), overthrew 10 yd out that was open but a tight window (8:55 3rd), 2pt conversion successful on QB keeper on read option (11:00 4th), terribly underthrew 9 route that was open for a game winning TD for inc (4:14 4th). In the 2011 Tennessee game he made some great throws and put up huge numbers in a blowout win but had a few really bad throws including one throw (7:40 2nd) where he threw it right into a CB’s chest but was dropped and another that easily could have been picked as well. He has a little too much gunslinger in him right now for me but the talent is definitely there 11/12/11. In the 2011 LSU game he started out strong leading his team to a TD in the first quarter and making it an emphasis to attack the #2 and #3 CBs of LSU and avoid Claiborne and Mathieu who played S in this game.

Notes: Called best OL for team in 2011 despite Barrett Jones winning Outland Trophy and DJ Fluker being the best regarded by scouts. In the 2011 LSU game #2 he had a nice pancake block on pass block, gave penetration to DT Bennie Logan but elite recovery turning him and with long arms stoning him in backfield (6:30 2nd), great pancake on down block vs. DT then showed elite quickness to get LB block-rare double block (5:51 2nd), solid mobility on RB screen but missed LB in space, false start but not called, great block in space on LB Sam Baker pushing him back and away for huge hole (2:45 3rd), strong push on Logan knocking him back then pancaking him on run (11:20 4th), another strong push vs. Logan. I have to agree that he’s their best OL in 2011. Future high draft pick as an OG. 2nd round 1/9/12.

Notes: #122 in ESPN 150 for ’09. Redshirted in 2009. In the 2011 South Florida game had a 32 yd run and catch off a dump off pass in the flat that was solid but more poor tackling than great moves by him (14:55 1st), showed great speed on an off tackle that he finished off with a big hit on a defender but maybe was too fast outrunning all of his blockers (13:32 1st), just has an elite burst getting 7 yards so easily on this inside run (10:52 1st), 13 yd gain on nifty inside run he bounces outside making two defenders miss (10:12 1st), great speed again getting 18 yds and almost a long TD run on a nice hole but hardly amazing (0:40 1st), nice 13 yd TD run using WR block beautifully but was a hold (13:45 2nd), and got 10 yds when he should have had 1 or 2 making a LB miss bad in the hole then bursting outside for the rest (3:26 2nd). Has a jerkiness, burst, and upright but with still the ability to get a low pad level that reminds me of Ladainian Tomlinson. In the 2011 Michigan gamehe again showed his great burst and impressive short area quickness taking an inside run with little there for 10 yds (12:48 1st), good patience and vision cutting it in then out then in again on inside run using blockers perfectly for 11 yds (11:10 1st), textbook inside run slowly stepping in backfield until he saw a lane open up and then he burst through for 4 yd TD only getting hit at the goal line by arm tackle (2:00 1st), great burst, quickness, and ability to avoid the tackle as he jumped around diving safety tackler for more yards on 18 yd run (10:06 2nd), great burst and vision again on 18 yd run that he ended by driving the pile another 3 yds (13:40 3rd), bad fumble on play where he was barely hit (7:40 3rd), great 24 yd run starting outside cutting it quickly inside then showing his elite short area quickness juking a safety after 8 yds to make him fly by him badly for the rest of the yards (6:00 3rd).

Notes: #7 in ESPN 150 for ’10. Freshman All-American in ’10. Pac-10 Freshman POY in 2010. In the 2011 Minnesota game showed great hands catching an 8 yd curl and holding on even though he was hit immediately forcing him to pin the ball behind his head! (10:54 1st), seems to pluck everything showing elite hands for a kid his age, nice pluck on slightly high ball on WR screen turning it into a 10 yd gain and 1st down (8:30 1st), great job holding defender off with his back to slow down for 43 yd 9 route TD (9:31 2nd), good speed but poor lateral quickness on +30 yd KR (4:05 2nd), good 16 yd WR screen making a defender miss for the final 6 yards (3:55 2nd), he is getting better at the little things as he went slow on motion then fast on motion back to gain separation from CB for easy 2 yd TD (0:40 2nd), had an amazing first half (11 115 3 TDs). Showed strength on slant that he took outside fending off two defenders for about 5 more yards with his stiff arm (8:24 3rd), good extended hands catch and great YAC avoiding the first defender, spinning off the second, and racing down the sidelines for 28 yds (3:30 3rd), broke USC single game record with his 16th reception of the game on short hitch (12:29 4th), and fumbled kickoff but USC recovered (8:01 4th). He showed great hands, great strength, and good speed. He isn’t a Calvin Johnson/Larry Fitzgerald prospect yet but his dominance against lesser competition already makes him a late 1st round talent to me 9/7/11.
