This week’s edition is defiantly SEC-free! You’ll hear enough about the inherent awesomeness of the Southeastern Conference on the morning yakfests, and several SEC teams will make a triumphant return to next week’s column.

 

Stanford at Washington, Friday 9 PM on ESPN

The PAC-12 smartly puts its marquee game in prime time on Friday, where the entire football nation can watch two top-10 teams square off in Seattle.

Everyone knows Cardinal star Christian McCaffrey, the best playmaking RB in the nation and in this draft class. The obvious draft comparison is one McCaffrey himself has endorsed, Reggie Bush. Heck he even wears No. 5 in tribute to the former USC star, who had an uneven NFL career pockmarked by numerous injuries. McCaffrey is more sturdily built but just as explosive.

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.
