a few winners:

adarius bowman - came back from injury and impressed me with his immediate impact

jon stewart - over 250 yards rushing in a bowl game will do wonders for your stock

jamaal charles - just plain looked good running the ball. finished with 161 and 2 tds.

Jake Long-I was realy IMpressed with him after yesterdays game

01-02-2008, 11:04 AM
Mendenhall really stood out today, his mix of speed/power and pass catching ability is going to be hard to ignore.

Granted he has done this all season, but yesterday he did it on a much bigger stage.

If both him and Stewart declare they are going to be neck and neck for that 2nd RB of the board.

Stewart looked beastly!

I believe Chad Henne helped his stock yesterday...

William Moore really helped his draft stock after yesterday's performance. He made plays all over the field and ran an INT in for a TD.

I thought it was iffy about him heading into the draft this year, but now I would guess that it will likely happen.

Kevin Riley: Will likely be starting QB next year for Cal.
Robert Jordan:Had a good game.
USC's defense all of there defense.
Adrian Arrington
Lloyd Carr
Nate Longshore: probably lost starting job.
All of FSU players who didnt play in there bowl game.
McFadden productive but nothing special.

I think Jonathan Hefney helped himself out. He played a pretty good game against Wisconsin. He came up and looked good in run support and broken up a couple passes. He's had a down senior season but I think he helped himself a little.

I think Tennessee TE Brad Cottam helped himself also with that long TD pass. He showed good hands, strength, and some decent speed. He wasn't fast but no one caught him. He's a pretty good blocker also.

I believe Chad Henne helped his stock yesterday...

Me too. Very impressive.

Missouri RB Tony Temple (cotton bowl)- 281 rushing yards, 4 touchdowns

Both cotton bowl records

01-02-2008, 04:05 PM
Winner - Rodney Kinlaw, RB, Penn State.

Ran as well as he has all season vs A&M. May help him get into the late rounds, vs. just being an UDFA

01-02-2008, 05:04 PM
Terrance Taylor- he dominated the interior the whole game and almost entirely took away Tebows ability to step up in the pocket.

01-02-2008, 05:35 PM
I was there at the Sun Bowl and I must say I was VERY impressed with Stewart he tore it UP!

I was also very impressed with Tony Temple, Chris Long, and Chad Henne

01-02-2008, 06:02 PM
Chad Henne played terrific.

I wouldn't go as far as to say Colt Brennan's stock dropped. No one will say he had a great game, even a good game for that matter. But Brennan has emn in his face the entire game and any former Qb or anyone with common sense could tell you it's hard to throw from your back. The Hawaii OL was completely blown away. Brennan showed he could take a hit, that's for sure. He showed tremendous heart and when he had the time, he held up fine against a far superior team. Of course, if the guy was a first round prospect his stock would drop, but I don't think I saw anything that would lead me to believe this guy can't be a first day pick. He shyed away from hits later in the game and almost played scared late, but while I wouldn't say his stock went up, I wouldn't drop him on my board. A Mid 2nd-Mid 3rd Round guy in my opinion.

Jonathan Stewart and Reshard Mendenhall may have made themselves the clear choices for the second and thrid backs selected if they declare. I'm not sure who would go first between the two, but they both played real well.

Jake Long looked like he solidified himself as no less than a top 10 pick

01-02-2008, 11:02 PM
Loser - OU's O Line and Steve Slaton

01-03-2008, 02:32 AM
A few that haven't been mentioned yet are Rey Maualuga and Chris Johnson. Maualuga was all over the field in the Rose Bowl. He may still be a little raw in technique, but physically he reminds me of Urlacher. Chris Johnson, in the Hawaii Bowl, solidified himself as one of the top 2 senior RBs (the other being Mike Hart). After he blazes a 4.3 at the combine he could climb into the 2nd round.
