Every week, Draft Breakdown will bring you three standout players from “small” schools. We’ll cover a player from Division 1-AA, Division II and Division III. Here are this weeks spotlight players.
QB – Mississippi Valley State
6’2″ 196 lbs
Senior quarterback Paul Roberts had an amazing game for the MVSU Delta Devils this week. In a 61-6 beat-down of Texas College, Roberts led the offense with 5 touchdowns. The QB finished the game 24 of 35 for 329 yards, 5 TDs and 1 INT, adding 4 rushes for 32 yards in the victory
RB – Wayne State
6’0″ 223 lbs
Senior running back Joique Bell helped lead Wayne State on a come from behind victory this week over Ashland. Trailing 33-20 at halftime, Bell came out in the 2nd half on fire. Joique finished the game with 32 carries for a beefy 272 yards and 5 rushing touchdowns, and even added a receiving touchdown into the mix.
This win wasn’t the only accomplishment for Bell as he passed Walter Payton and Ricky Williams on the all-time NCAA scoring list with 480 total points for his career at this point. Bell is now 15th on the list.
QB – Gettysburg
6’1″ 185 lbs
Senior quarterback Matt Flynn put up gawdy stats against Ursinus, but the team was unable to come away with a victory. In a game that had a combined total offense of 1317 yards, defense was apparently not a part of the game plan for either team. Flynn may have had the most impressive performance of the game, completing 32 of 47 passes for a whopping 579 yards, one interception and 7, that’s right SEVEN touchdown passes for the Bullets.
