Re: 2012 Bowl Prospects and Declared Underclassmen

Haven't seen many Bowl games this year but a few players caught my eye. I'll refrain from comment on the usual suspects for the most part but I'll mention a couple of them.

For Oregon, most of the players who caught my eye were underclassmen (Boyett, Alonzo, Tuinei). Watch out for them next season! LeMichael James may be the most explosive player in college ball. I'd love to see him as our 3rd Down Back. Their TE Paulson was way downfield blocking on plays and he can catch, too. I like him a lot.

Wisconsin: The only thing Russell Wilson lacks is height. He is one heck of a player! I really liked OT Ricky Wagner. He's big, tough, skilled, and he runs well. Nick Toon is a big receiver who catches everything. He uses his size well to beat DB's. Toon may be underrated IMO because Wisconsin doesn't throw the ball very much. Montee Ball is terrific but he said that he's not coming out.

Michigan State: I liked what I saw in Cousins. He showed me that he's at his best in the clutch. I like that a lot. I'd bet that he makes it in the pros. Jerel Worthy looks like a pro DT to me.

South Carolina: I love Stephon Gilmore as a player. He's another player I'd like to see in B&G.

Oklahoma State: Give me Markelle Martin! He is a free safety with good size and speed. He covers a lot of ground, fast. But here's what I like about him the most: he hits people! Could we please have a FS who wants to hit somebody? He could wear the B&G, too, as far as I'm concerned. CB Justin Gilbert looked like has talent, as well.

Georgia: Brandon Boykin is one heck of a player. He plays CB/RB/PR/KR for the Bulldogs. All-Purpose should be his middle name.

Yes, I agree with these three guys, but especially Markell Martin, guy is the best FS in this years darft and is very physical like a SS. He reminds me of a young Donovan Darius/Deon Grant type of FS. With OJ being bad, and DeJon being a work in progress, and Landry uncertain of his return next year, we need a guy like this.

Re: 2012 Bowl Prospects and Declared Underclassmen

I hope everyone here watched Bama (and some of LSU's) defense tonight. They looked like an NFL defense going against a college offense.

Courtney Upshaw DE/OLB
Donta Hightower ILB
Dre Kirkpatrick CB
Dequan Menzie CB
Robert Lester S
Mark Baron S
Gentry DE
Chapman NT
That defense is all future nfl players, and should be skins possibilities (especially the secondary, DE, and Hightower)

Yes to claiborne

no to mathieu, he got targeted the whole game last night and showed why his size will be a factor in the nfl, he's too small.

Re: 2012 Bowl Prospects and Declared Underclassmen

Peter Konz, Center, Wisconsin has declared for the draft. He is considered the best Center to come out since Nick Mangold.

I'll agree that Mathieu had a rough night, but before last nights game, I was convinced he had the most talent of any player in the nation at his position. This guy is a GAMER, he'll go first round.

Also

Baker
Brockers
Montgomery
Reid
Taylor
Simon
Brooks

Both D's are sick.

He can play, just can't start on a defense unless the team opens up in nickel. People were asking me and other draft analysts where I'd put him, I'll say 2-3, I've only seen one other analyst that would put him in the first round and that was the late first, by Matt Miller. Definitely not worth a first round pick for a nickle back/RS.

And LSU's defense is great, with great players, I was just focusing on Bama's because their guys stuck out a lot more last night, and because they won.
