This week I’m taking you through my first mock of the season, and the second official mock for Draft Breakdown. Click here to check it out!
QB – Miami (OH) Redshirt Freshman
Two weeks ago, the Miami University RedHawks made a significant quarterback change, switching out redshirt senior Daniel Raudabaugh for redshirt freshman Zac Dysert. Raudabaugh, the starting quarterback for the RedHawks since 2007, was replaced after going 0-3 with 2 Touchdowns, 5 Interceptions and a 53% completion percentage.
It isn’t common for a senior to be benched for a freshman, especially at quarterback. But after starting 0-3 and not showing any signs of improvement, first year Head Coach Mike Haywood decided to build for the future by starting the young gunslinger. Since then, Miami is 0-2. On the plus side, Dysert completed 64% of his passes in those games with 2 TD’s and 4 INT’s, while also adding 99 yards on the ground.
Dysert isn’t lighting the world on fire, statistically, but from watching him play, you can see Keep Reading…
DE – Connecticut Senior
A player that has been rising up many draft boards recently is UConn’s DE Lindsey Witten. Witten had 6 sacks over the first two weeks of the season and was consistently in the backfield of his opponents, Ohio and North Carolina. Witten went up against Baylor this past weekend despite showing flu-like symptoms earlier in the week. He wasn’t able to get a sack on the elusive Robert Griffin, but he still had a couple of pressures and three tackles. Witten was overshadowed by players like second-round pick Cody Brown last year, but he has come on really strong so far and his stock is on the rise. He has decent size at 6-4 and 250 pounds, good speed around the edge, and superb pass-rushing moves, so scouts could look at him as a possible 3-4 rush linebacker. We will be keeping Keep Reading…
Highlighted by the Defensive Tackle position, the 2010 Defensive Class is very top heavy. There doesn’t appear to be a whole lot of depth past the first couple of rounds. Luckily, there are quite a few talented Underclassmen that are expected to declare, which could make the first two rounds the most talented in the past five years. This preview will look mainly at the DEFENSIVE SENIORS.
Carlos Dunlap (Florida) is a junior but still probably the best DE of this class, possessing tremendous size, speed, and strength. For the seniors, though, the group is led by Greg Hardy (Ole Miss) and Corey Wooten (Northwestern). Both are well-rounded defensive ends that will push for first round spots.

The 2009 College football season is expected to be an interesting one, headlined by the top 3 Quarterbacks who are trying to lead their teams to national championships and eventually lead themselves into top picks in the 2010 NFL Draft. These Quarterbacks are Tim Tebow (Sr- Florida), Colt McCoy (Sr- Texas), and Sam Bradford (RS Jr- Oklahoma). In this special Draft Breakdown season preview we will concentrate only on the top Senior players at each OFFENSIVE position.
McCoy and Tebow are the ‘name guys’ of this group that you will hear about throughout the entire season. But, there are a host of other QB’s that are trying to campaign their way into being 1st day picks come the 2010 draft.
