I've seen him play twice now and I've come away impressed both times. He's a RS freshman so he could be somebody to look out for next year.

Sanu is incredible. He is still flying under the radar, somehow.

I like Geno Smith a lot. I was impressed with him last year, but this year he seems to have taken his game to the next level. He reads the whole field, can make every throw, throws very accurately for the most part, and as you said he's taken on a leadership role. Mathieu made an amazing play on the 2nd INT, and Geno came out in the 2nd half and brought his team back into the game until the KO return ended it. I think he's a potential first round pick if he stays his last year (don't know why he wouldn't).

Halsey Isaiah Crowell is going to be the best RB prospect since at least Barry Sanders. His physical gifts rival Herschel Walker. I can easily see him being the first RB to go #1 overall since KiJana Carter.

Ok, not really. He's actually overrated garbage. WAAAY more overrated than Knowshon Moreno. I don't think he'll even go in the top 6 rounds.
Really, he is not that awful of a prospect. I actually like the way he runs the football, very solid looking prospect and one of the better freshman running backs in the country. But sure if one expects him to be actually Herschel Walker, which he could have been hyped as that type of talent, then yes you are disappointed.

That is why it is smart not to listen to high school rankings that much, pay attention but not that close of attention. If one listened to those rankings, they would also think Seantrel Henderson is the best offensive lineman ever and is just as good as Orlando Pace....clearly not the case...

Week 5:
*Ray Graham JR RB Pitt: Really fine game in a prime time performance, he is starting to show that yes he might be much better than Dion Lewis was. Big time game breaking speed, impressive quickness, can make you miss, take a hit, small guy but tough, he stock is skyrocketing.


*Dominique Easley SOPH DT Florida: Huge DT talent for Florida, got into the backfield at will at times against a great offensive line for Alabama. Could be a huge pass rushing tackle and an elite talent in no time at all.


*Courtney Upshaw SR OLB Alabama: Flat out elite, and made the case as being the #1 3/4 OLB in the up coming draft easily. His ability to get low and around the corner brings up thoughts of one James Harrison. Almost a fact he is gone after the 1st round.


*Jarius Wright SR WR Arkansas: What a game for him, surrounded by big time receiver talent at Arkansas but he breaks out with a monster game. Looks uncoverable. Big time speed in the open field, really impressive performance.


*Robert Turbin JR RB Utah State: Bull as a running back, huge kid, very thick and very fast in the open field. Tough player, not a classic running back and runs out of the shotgun a lot, but still interesting talent on a usually not so talented football team.


*Chance Warmack JR OG Alabama: Played a great game against Florida, made a lot of very key blocks that broke big runs. Last year he kind of struggled but this year he is showing he is a very solid guard and has a chance to play at the next level.


*Uona Kaveinga JR OLB BYU: A USC transfer, big kid, impressive pass rusher off the edge, can hold up against the run well and is a good athlete overall. Could be a very solid prospect come his senior season, already shows great playmaking ability at linebacker.


*John Simon JR DE Ohio State: Has always been a good player, ever since he was a freshman. Now he is starting to get noticed more, very impressive lineman that can get after the quarterback and play consistently aggressive football, easily their best defensive lineman and arguably best defensive prospect.


*Corey Lemonier SOPH DE Auburn: Has an odd way he plays the game, stands upright a lot and does not get real low, but is a thick kid, good athlete and got good consistent pressure off the edge and caused problems for SC. Was playing against an inexperienced player, but still showed potential as a pass rusher.


*AJ Jenkins SR WR Illinois: Another breakout game for him, very explosive athlete and is putting it all together this season. Attacks the ball and goes and gets it, can break big plays in the open field and is improving his stock.


*Cory King SOPH OG Pitt: Played very well, made a lot of key blocks for Pitt that sprung a lot of big runs. Moves well on the field and is an athletic lineman that should only get better with time.


*William Gholston SOPH DE Michigan State: Great to see him play up to his potential in a big game. Massive man and with productive play on the field he could be a crazy high draft pick with his athletic size and skills as a pass rusher.


*James Gayle SOPH DE Virgina Tech: Impressed with his quickness off the edge as a pass rusher, has a good variety of moves and knows how to stay off blockers as well.


*AJ McCarron SOPH QB Alabama: Crazy impressive in the Swamp, not an experienced quarterback but plays like a fifth year senior. Tall, long arms, manages the game and could become another great Bama leader at QB.


*Jared Abbrederis SOPH WR Wisconsin: Big time receiver, tough, catches it over the middle, has good enough hands to be a return man as well. He will be an NFL receiver when it is all said and done, very promising young player.


*Quinterrius Eatmon FR OT South Florida: Massive freshman to keep an eye on, the kid is huge and can play a little bit as well.


*Andre Debose SOPH WR Florida: Great to see him actually be productive on Florida. Big time talent with big time speed, finally starting to produce on little on the field, see if he can keep it up.

Should have mentioned Melvin Ingram again...it's becoming a weekly thing. He was just a monster on Saturday. 9 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, an INT, a fumble recovery for a TD.

Andre Branch looked beastly for Clemson against VT, was just abusing their tackles on the outside.

Also really like Bellamy for Clemson, little bit skinny at the moment but give him a couple of offseasons in the gym and he looks like he could be dangerous. Had an absolutely sick cut.

Week 6:
*Jonathan Hankins SOPH DT Ohio State: What a game he played, noticed him against Miami, but against Nebraska he was all over the field, a 350 pound defensive lineman running downfield for tackles all night. Showed great conditioning level for a man his size, very impressive athlete with solid strength and ability to get off the ball. Outstanding game and possibly an elite talent for the Buckeyes.


*Stanley Jean-Baptiste SOPH CB Nebraska: Could be his breakout moment on Nebraska, a former receiver converted to a corner recently. Tall kid, 6-3 if not bigger, can run like the wind and has natural pass coverage skills. If he keeps up and listens to the coaching he is getting he could be a flat out sick corner prospect, well done so far by the Nebraska coaches making this switch.


*Geraldo Boldewijn SOPH WR Boise State: Could be a star receiver, ridiculous athletic talent, big, strong, runs well, long arms. Could be a great player if he puts his mind to it, very promising prospect.


*Rex Burkhead JR RB Nebraska: Played a ridiculous game, showed all that you want in a NFL back. Can catch the ball out of the backfield, can make you miss in the open field or run over you. Is a solid blocker and is willing to block, has decent speed and big play ability. Just a complete running back and he is getting better and better.


*Bradley Roby FR CB Ohio State: Spoke too soon on Ohio state in the past, they are talented, a lot more than I thought and have a lot more defensive talent than I though. Roby should be the best corner on the team, young freshman but is very sound in how he plays the game.


*Keenan Allen SOPH WR Cal: Elite receiver talent, tall, quick, good hands, can make plays after the catch and attacks the football, no waiting for it to come to him. Very solid player and one of the better ones in that talented class of receivers.


*Cyrus Kouandjio FR OT Alabama: Know why he is so highly rated, looks amazing on the football field physically, looks just like an elite talent. Big arms, good frame. Not a dominating blocker yet but has the strength and athletic ability and in time he could become a flat out great player for Alabama.


*Christian Bryant SOPH CB Ohio State: Great tackler, hits hard, runs well, still needs work in pass coverage at times but his aggression tackling is what to get excited about. Not sure he can play strong safety in the NFL or not, ideally a slot corner but might have to become a safety possibly.


*Jamar Taylor JR CB Boise State: Made one of the best interceptions I have ever seen, getting better and better each game and is quickly rising up that list of junior class corners. Very good player.


*Isi Sofele JR RB Cal: Tough little running back, built like a brick wall, thick, hard to bring down yet very fast in the open field and quick. Great chance of pace back or 3rd down back potentially. One to watch out for in a long line of solid Cal running backs.


*Andrew Sweat SR OLB Ohio State: Rising up the draft boards, great strong side linebacker for the middle of the draft. Consistent, tackles well, good getting off blocks, just a safe bet.


*Kevin Koger SR TE Michigan: Quietly having a very good season, good athlete, big kid, runs well, can stretch the field and block at times. Good late round potential as a tight end at the next level.


*Brandin Hawthorne JR ILB Michigan: Athletic kid, looks great, strong, runs well, should develop into a fine linebacker at Michigan and is becoming one of the leaders and big playmakers on that defense.


*Michael Bennett FR DT Ohio State: Solid you player for them, good athlete, gets good push up the middle and gains penetration, could develop into a good player down the line.

Week 6:
*Casey Walker JR NT Oklahoma: Another elite level talent at defensive tackle for Oklahoma. Walker, built low to the ground, gets good push, plays with good leverage and would be a fine potential NT in the NFL, promising player.


*Corey Nelson SOPH SS/OLB Oklahoma: Really interesting player, plays outside linebacker in a safeties body, gets off blocks really well, fights them off constantly and makes tackles. Good athlete and could be a fine SS in the NFL if he has the pass coverage ability, if not could gain some weight and be a solid outside linebacker potentially. Really interesting prospect and very rare his abilities at his size.


*Frank Alexander SR DE OU: Could argue he is one of the most improved players so far this season. Really playing well for Oklahoma, fast off the ball, long arms, has good pass rush moves and conditioning. Very fine prospect and is rising fast up the DE draft class.



*Jamell Fleming SR CB Oklahoma: Where did they get him from, another fine corner on their roster. Takes on blocks very well, has active hands and is stout at the corner. Can run defend very well because of this, and is improving in pass coverage, a very good second tear corner for the up coming draft.


*Dominique Whaley JR RB Oklahoma: Another player, comes out of no where, has star potential. Runs smooth, effortlessly, quick, has long strides and can take a hit. Very impressive runner who with another year would be a fine prospect.


*Jaz Reynolds SOPH WR Oklahoma: The next Ryan Broyles, fast, quick, long arms, gets seperation in the open field and can make plays after the catch. Very good receiver prospect for them.


*Ronnell Lewis JR OLB/DE Oklahoma: Playing better and better, so strong with his hands, gets off blocks well, is thick and very built. An ideal 3/4 OLB potentially, powerful player.


*Alex Okafor JR DE Texas: One of the few bright spots for Texas, good athlete, gets off the ball quickly and shows good pass rushing potential.





Disappointed
Keenan Robinson SR OLB Texas: I used to kind of like him, but he is not playing very well for Texas, is not very tough, fast but does not get off blocks. He needs to improve his play a lot to even be considered in the NFL. Not as intense or productive as he was years previous.

Blake Gideon SR FS Texas: Ok safety but not what he should be, was an interception machine early in his career, now he seems a step slow a lot of the time, improved tackle but might not be as quick as he needs to be.

What do you think about David Amerson? CB from NC State. He's a sophomore. 34 tackles, 6 int, and 9 pbu on the year. 6'3" 194#. Plays the field CB spot so he can run well and tackle in space. Thoughts/prayers?

Those are some amazing statistics, however when I have watched NC State this year no real player outside of Audie Cole made a huge impression on me. Will watch for Amerson more next time I see them play. Really depends on if the guy can tackle aggressively or not, that is why I have Tony Jefferson rated so high, because he can both play the pass and be a wonderful tackler.

Week 7:
*Brock Osweiler JR QB Arizona State: Very impressive prospect that is getting better and better. Already has a better release than some more experienced quarterbacks. Gets rid of the ball quickly, huge man, just flat out massive, great athlete though, former basketball player. If he comes back for his senior year he could sky rocket up the charts. And with big name QBs coming out possibly this year, he could be in the conversation for being a top 5 pick if he keeps on improving in 2013, has the potential to grow to that point I feel.


*Earl Okine JR DE Florida: What a freak, huge kid, 6-7, gets off the ball well, quick and solid as an athlete. Part of a very deep and very talented Florida defensive line, he is one of the better prospects out of all of them potentially. Had a good game against Auburn.


*DaJohn Harris SR DT USC: Overall not a dominating career, but has impressed a lot this year, big, thick, quick, gets after the passer and gets penetration. In a weak defensive tackle class, if he plays well he could get close to being the 1st or 2nd defensive tackle taken, that is if he keeps up his high level of production.


*Mike Willie SR WR Arizona State: Sneaking receiver, will be a player come the 2012 draft. Athletic, strong upper and lower body, catches the ball well, reminds me of a Mike Williams from Syracuse type of receiver.


*Devon Kennard JR DE/ OLB USC: Now moved to defensive end, playing great football. Is an elite 3/4 OLB prospect and is playing great rushing the passer. Could be really increasing his stock showing the ability to play that position.


*DeAnthony Thomas FR WR Oregon: A lot of people like him more than I do, but hard to argue with his quickness and speed in the open field. Really a threat with the ball in his hands, just not sure yet how that will translate to the NFL because he does not have the power or overall athletic strength of a Percy Harvin I feel, doubt he could ever put on that amount of muscle. We will see how he progresses.


*Trevor Reilly SOPH OLB Utah: One to watch out for, has ideal size for a 3/4 OLB, very productive player, supposedly leads the nation in tackles for a loss. Very productive and is one to keep and eye on.


*Hayes Pullard FR OLB USC: Young player, but playing well, quick to the ball, tackles well and is all over the field. Will be interesting to watch his development and can already see the improvement with him on the field more and Kennard moving to DE.


*Damontre Moore SOPH OLB Texas A&M: Another 3/4 OLB prospect, had a fine game against Baylor, really got after the passer and made it rough back there. Good athlete, long wing span and could develop into a fine player.


*Sharrif Floyd SOPH DT Florida: Another talented Florida defensive lineman, shows good quickness and power. Consistent pass rusher that gets good push off the line.


*Jordan Reed SOPH TE Florida: Could be a good tight end when it is all said and done. Big kid, strong hands, good athlete that can get down field and catch the football. With time he could be a solid tight end prospect potentially.

True Freshman Penn State CB Adrian Amos has been really impressive.
He has been pretty good, I have been impressed with the overall Penn State defense and there improvement. Redd is a very impressive running back also, very strong and hard to bring down. I like how Hodges has improved his game, as with Powell at corner. Khairi Fortt I wish got more playing time, has a lot to prove with that number, but he is real athletic and has potential. Astorino really impressed against Iowa, he made a lot of big plays and was sound in coverage. And Still is clearly playing great for them. Wish Bolden was the all time starter, but sadly none of those two really seperate themselves from one another, Bolden has better on the field presence I feel, but McGloin makes more big plays in the passing game.

Both Penn State QBs suck. Jay Paterno has already botched Bolden's development. That position really drags the whole team down.

And Silas Redd isn't the only RB that might have a future on the next level. Curtis Dukes is really talented also. 6'-1" 240 with good quickness and speed.

I think Bolden was botched already. Its pretty amazing they are 5-1.

Because at this point, no one new has really stood out to me. Maybe could make the case for Dominic Alvis, but I have to see more from him, and same with Tanner Miller. Those two have shown potential but again I probably have to see more of them. All the rest stood out last year and impressed, just not many new guys for them I guess.

Coker impressed last year and is on the radar, Micah Hyde is flat out playing absolutely great football and I love him at corner, big time prospect. Jordan Bernstine at safety is interesting and McNutt is playing solid, has a better chance in the NFL than DJK did. Someone last year I said was not that great and I would take over 15 receivers ahead of him, and guess what, kid was not even drafted.

Expected more out of Herman than what he is doing, he needs to really pick it up. And Binns is slowly starting to become more productive.

Sure will watch then more but as of right now they seem a little less talented than they usually are. Will see how they play the rest of the year.

This. There's no one really that's been doing a whole lot consistently for us, and even the guys with random good games you can't possibly make note of everyone.

Really, you have Vandenberg who has looked pretty good most games but also has shown signs of a first year starter and still hasn't won on the road. McNutt and Keenan Davis show flashes, but sometimes our play call hinders how great they look. Coker has been relatively disappointing, but has turned it on the last 2 games. Our TEs overall have been awful, and because our WRs have been playing really well we have moved away from throwing to them. Not really going to write up the OL much, but they've been worse than what they should be, and Reiff hasn't really done outstanding like he should.

On D, Binns is playing better as of late, especially Saturday, but other than that hasn't done much. And like you said, Alvis is starting to break through, but doesn't have much of a resume yet. James Morris is an animal, leading the conference in tackles, but isn't elligible for the draft so no one really notices. Nielsen has been pretty disappointing/injured, and Kirksey is a first year starter quietly having a great year so far. Prater has been pretty disappointing in that he hasn't made many big plays, but he's quietly doing his job. Hyde and Bernstine are having great years so far, hopefully Bernstine can stay healthy. Tanner Miller - see James Morris.

Really, there are a few guys having pretty good years, but nothing special. Vandenberg had the Pitt game, I guess you could have talked about him then, or the WRs. Other than that, Iowa has been really meh this year and nothing really worth noting. We're really young and green, so no real name recognition with our guys yet. Your last sentence is more or less spot on, and where we have talent it's young and inexperienced.

Week 8:
*Nickolas Brassell FR WR Ole Miss: Very good looking freshman, supposedly plays both ways for Ole Miss. Great athlete, love his quickness, confidence on the field, good hands, dangerous with the ball, long arms. Quickly a big playmaker like this could help bring some new life to a downward sliding program.


*Fabbians Ebbele FR OT Arizona: Really great looking tackle so far, big kid at 6-8, good feet, very good pass protector and absolutely destroyed defender run blocking against UCLA. Will be one to keep an eye on along with a fine group of freshman tackles across the country.


*Chandler Jones SR DE Syracuse: Played a really breakout game, just had one of those dominating games he could do no wrong. Big kid, has been on the radar awhile, had injuries this year but if he keeps up this level of play he could easily be a 2nd or 3rd round pick.


*Arthur Brown JR ILB Kansas State: Playing great football, so athletic and hard to block. Brings it on every play, penetrates and gets tackles for loss constantly. Part of a much improved Kansas State defense, playing at a totally different level than he did at Miami.


*Chance Warmack JR OG Alabama: Arguably is playing as good as any guard in the country. Pulls constantly on run plays, is aggressive blocking down field, really plays well and is dominating for Bama.


*Aaron Lynch FR DE Notre Dame: Big tall kid, gives good effort and is a very impressive young player for Notre Dame. They have not had this much talent on that defensive line for a very long time.


*Joe Scott SOPH RB Ole Miss: Big time playmaker, was a good prospect last year as well. And arguably has more toughness than some smaller speed backs. Big play waiting to happen, he is one to watch.


*Casey Locker SOPH SS Washington State: Saw a little of him, one to keep an eye one, related to Jake Locker. Big hitter at safety though, love that toughness and aggression, plus has those blood lines do not hurt.


*Tra'Mayne Bondurant FR CB Arizona: Stout corner, tough, physical, built low to the ground and tackles well. One to watch out for in the future, right now he has the physical tools to become a difference maker.


*Jonathan Meeks JR SS Clemson: Having a great year for Clemson, all over the field, hitting hard and making big plays consistently.


*Curtis McNeal JR RB USC: Love his toughness, runs low to the ground, hard to take down and has good leg power. Is part of an ever improving USC backfield.


*Andre McDonald SOPH TE Kansas State: Huge kid, dominating run blocker, really helping that Kansas State offense crush people running the football. If he shows some more as a pass catcher he could quickly become an elite tight end prospect.


*Dion Sims SOPH TE Michigan State: Not much to not like about him, he is a big wide body, good blocker, has soft hands and makes big catches. Really a great looking young tight end, that is for sure.


*Dion Bailey FR SS USC: Playing fine football, young player, is used as a linebacker and is part of the reason why they are so improved on defense. Has good speed, nice tackler and could develop into a decent strong safety in time.


*Randall Telfer RS FR TE USC: Love his physical ability, runs and catches like a receiver, thick, tough, gets off the line and down the field easily. Is part of a par of solid young tight ends for USC.


*Le'Veon Bell SOPH RB Michigan State: Had a great game, catch the ball effortlessly out of the backfield. Was a beast running the football, showed fine quickness for a man his size. In time, when he becomes the #1 back, he could really breakout as a prospect, very talented player.


*BJ Cunningham SR WR Michigan State: Should be moving up the boards. Just makes big plays, consistently catches the ball and rarely lets one go. Is tough, strong, can take a hit, run after contact, just not much to not like about the guy. And he has been consistently productive for years.


*Aaron Morris FR OG Ole Miss: Love his lower body, really sound base to him as a football player. Can move some people around, good athlete and in time could develop into a fine guard prospect.


*Trenton Robinson SR S Michigan State: Really playing great at safety for them, with his improved player he has a shot at being a possible 3rd-4th round pick I feel. Athletic, makes plays and in a weak class of safeties he could be picked higher than expected.


*Corey Crawford FR DE Clemson: Another possible star at defensive end for Clemson, they have these guys all over. Big kid, very similar build to Bowers of last year. Tough and good off the ball, will see how he develops.


*Kawann Short JR DT Purdue: Promising tackle for Purdue, he can get after the quarterback, is quick off the ball and is a consistent force up the middle. Watch out for him in the future.



Disappointed
Bruce Irvin SR OLB West Virginia: Really a big disappointment, everyone had him rated high before the season based off last year. But just simply not playing that well with the increase attention on him. Playing as a down defensive end and really not doing all that well, showing he cannot get off blocks and that he cannot put his hand on the ground and get around the edge as a pass rusher.

Jacobbi McDaniel JR DT Florida State: Being outplayed by freshman tackles on Florida State. Not playing up to his potential, was a fine run stopper that made in impact last year, not doing the same this year. Then again that might just say those freshman are that good to play over him, and that is possible.

^ Kawann Short is very underrated. Every time I watch Purdue, he is wreaking havoc in the trenches.

Casey Locker (Jake's cousin) really doesnt need to be mentioned in a draft forum. He's small and slow for the position. If his name weren't Locker i doubt his name would even come up.

I do talk about prospects young and old, he is only a sophomore and oddly enough, myself included, I thought the same about Eric Smith on Michigan State. Loved his toughness and hitting ability as a young player, then he got less interesting to me over time and I have him as a late round pick or lucky to be drafted. Yet turns out, kid made the NFL and still is a starter on the Jets. Why? Because of speed, not because of toughness tackling.

Casey Locker has had some great hits this year, and sure hitting is not everything but more often than not it shows physical strength and willingness to give up your body. And again not the case with everything, but usually players that make other players go backwards when they hit them, turn out to be ok if they show overall consistency and willingness to give up their body and tackle.


You saying Cody Grimm was some elite level talent on Virginia Tech? Heck no, played what linebacker and just showed great toughness and tackling. Then gets picked as a safety prospect and is still in the NFL. Thus I do feel Casey Locker in time could be that same type of prospect, one who has toughness and tackling potential.

But of course, his last name makes one pay attention, because Jake Locker was a physical beast and was impressive from the word go. And based off those few hits I saw his cousin make, who knows, the gene pool could be a good one.

Silas Redd went for 18-164 with zero yards lost yesterday. He's really in a groove, averaging 142 ypg in four Big Ten games, with no game less than 125 yds.

You're entitled to your opinion but if he ever gets drafted i'll send you a bottle of our best NW wine.
