week 5 standouts
Victor Hampton, CB South Carolina. another good CB from South Carolina. listed at 5'10 202, he does have decent size to play on the next level. he also showed the ability to play off man, and mirror WRs down field. he baited the UCF QB into throwing a backside post and jumped the route beautifully for an INT. he is also physical and plays press man rather well. is considered the best cover guy for the gamecocks this year, havent seen his deep speed but will keep my eyes on him.
Kyle Fuller, CB Va Tech. this guy has really stepped up and been one of the better CB prospects this year. can play outside on an island, and cover the slot in nickel sets. can blitz and will come up and help in run support. dont know if it was schemed or depth issue, but vs Georgia Tech Fuller, played a lot in the box, as a hybrid CB/LB role. he took on blocks from OL, scrapped holes, blitzed, and dropped into coverage. he will be a decent CB on the next level,and is another guy to watch for.
Rashad Greene, WR Florida St. these next few guys i have mentioned before, but it seems that they keep making splash plays. i am sold on Rashad Greene, and i think he will surprise some people. this guy really reminds me Desean Jackson, but tougher. he is not scared to go across the middle, and high pints the football really well. he caught a deep ball on a corner-post for about 60 yards because of his route running and speed. he is one of the most explosive players in college football. he also scored again on a play that broke down where Jameis rolled out of the pocket in trouble, and found Greene before heading out of bounds. Greene got a little separation and tapped his feet(yes 2) before falling out. finished with a 4 catches, 90 yards, and 2 TDs stat line.
Mike Evans, WR Texas A&M. huge target, that keeps making plays. beat his man for a huge gain on a post route. when Manziel is in trouble all he has to do is lob the ball up anywhere near Evans, and he will make a play. his 2nd TD he had 3-4 defenders around him, but still made a play where he attacked the ball in the air in traffic. he caught the TD but did seem to hurt his leg on that catch. dont remember him making a play after getting hurt.
Cyrus Kouandijo, OT Bama. this guy improves every week in my eye. he can perform every type of block that a OT should. his pass protections is good too, and he had a pretty good night vs a decent Ole Miss DL. it appears that he is the #2 OT in the draft if he declares. i think his upside is much larger then Lewan.
Jared Abbrederis, WR Wisconsin. former walk on, who wins with savy route running and good hands. he beat a decent CB Roby pretty much all night long. he either had great separation from his routes, or made great catches in traffic. Roby held, grabbed, and interfered with Abbrederis all night. Jared had a helleva night vs a guy who many thought was a top 10 prospect.
Cedric Ogbuehi, OT Texas A&M. Jake Matthews gets all the pub from that OL, and should. but Ced is a pretty decent prospect in his own right. is a big RT that played RG last year, and could maybe play the LT spot as well. he is really athletic and has good feet, and moves really well. long arms, and him starting at RG as a sophomore with Joeckel, and Matthews speaks about what the staff thinks of him. he had to see the field, so they plugged him in at RG.playing multiple positions is a plus but he could be an all pro as a RT.
Jarvis Landry, WR LSU. A 6'1 195 WR who might have the best hands in the SEC. he is a smooth route runner, but is not a burner in the speed category. his style compares to a Victor Cruz, because when this guy gets into the slot he becomes a match up nightmare. can attack the seams of a defense and takes advantage of LBs when matched up against them. made several huge catches on UGA in traffic and on huge downs. does not mind going over the middle.
