CFB Week 4 Scouting Watch Guide

Written by Jeff Risdon on September 23, 2016

For most teams this week marks the beginning of the conference slate. There are some strong matchups that should help illuminate the prospects of many players, including several I will see in person in East Lansing.

Georgia at Ole Miss, 12 PM on ESPN

Normally I use these previews to focus more broadly on a host of prospects in a single game, but I’m calling an audible here and devoting all the attention on Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly.

I know many trusted evaluators see potential NFL greatness in Jim Kelly’s nephew. Dane Brugler and Rob Rang at CBS, two guys I like and respect very much, have him pegged as a first-round talent. Matt Miller at Bleacher Report, another evaluator whose opinion I value, compares him to Jay Cutler as a prospect.

I just don’t see it with Kelly. I see glimpses. I see tools, like the (read more…)

Colorado at Michigan Scouting Summary: The Jabrill Peppers Show

Written by Jeff Risdon on September 18, 2016

pppers

I spent a sunny, beautiful late summer afternoon in the Big House watching Colorado take on Michigan. The visiting Buffaloes stormed out early but couldn’t overcome a key injury or a furious Michigan comeback.

Here’s my abridged notebook on several of the NFL prospects.

Jabrill Peppers–Normally I do the prospects in alphabetical order but Peppers’ tour de force performance deserves top billing. The Michigan defender was the best player on the field, in part because he was all over it.

He announced his presence with authority on the very first run play, knifing around the edge and slamming the ballcarrier to the turf for a 2-yard loss. Later, he perfectly timed an A-gap blitz and hit the QB before he had a chance to get rid of the ball.

Peppers is primarily a strong safety but he lined up at every non-DL position on Michigan’s 4-3 defense except field (read more…)


CFB Week 3 Scouting Watch Guide

Written by Jeff Risdon on September 16, 2016

Joe Mixon and Oklahoma face off against Malik Hooker and Ohio State

After a week lacking in star power, the college football schedule comes back with a vengeance. Several marquee matchups pace a strong slate of games that will give prospects a chance to show their mettle against one another in quite a few big games.

 

Miami FL at Appalachian State, 12 PM on ESPN

The Mountaineers nearly upset Tennessee a couple weeks ago, and that game introduced the wider college football world to senior RB Marcus Cox. This visit from Miami is likely the last time we’ll see Cox and App State televised until their bowl game, so take advantage. I see a lot of Ray Rice to his game, notably the ability to plant hard and cut while at full gallop. Cox was consistently effective at grinding out yards against Tennessee, and if he can do the same against the visiting Hurricanes he solidifies a middle-round draft grade. Guard (read more…)
