Scouting Roundup College Football Week: 10

News and Notes

 

College Football has been producing news at a record pace these past weeks, and I love it. The NFL even pitched in as well, with the trade deadline. Lots of picks for this upcoming draft were moved around so we will review that here. One of my favorite prospects returned from an injury this week as well.

 

The NFL tradeline may have not moved any big-time pieces but a lot of little moves were made that affect the draft. First, Golden Tate was traded from the Detroit Lions to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round pick in 2019. For the Eagles, I think this trade is great, but for Detroit, I am slightly confused. Are they rebuilding or contending? Second, The Texans acquired Demaryius Thomas from the Broncos for a fourth-round pick. This one makes sense for both sides if you ask me. Third, the Redskins got Ha Ha Clinton Dix from the Packers for a fourth-round pick. I love this trade for Washington but I have to ask Green Bay the same question I asked Detroit. Are you competing or rebuilding? Fourth, the LA Rams picked up Dante Fowler JR. from Jacksonville for a third (2019) and fifth-round pick(2020). The Rams needed some edge help and Jacksonville did not want to pay Fowler. Sounds like a win-win to me.

 

It was announced this week that Trey Adams would be returning to action for the Washington Huskies. Adams started the year as my number two overall tackle and was a top 15 player on my big board. I will hold off moving him up until I see how he looks coming back off the injury. Adams will move back up quickly if I see the same type of player who has ranked top 15 during week one.

 

In other news, I was sick this week so I spent most of my free time catching up on tape. After I watched all of the tape I needed to catch up on it made me realize that my QB rankings needed to be overhauled.  The list is almost completely different from lasts weeks so I would recommend going and taking a long look at it. If you want to talk about any of the boards further be sure to follow me on twitter @DanteCollinelli.

Three Must Watch Games for Week 10

 

Game One: Alabama vs LSU/ Saturday 11/3, 8:00 PM

This game might be considered the best game of the season from an NFL draft perspective. We are going to see so many players who can be selected in the first round this April. Outside of draft implications, Alabama and LSU is a historic rivalry.

 

Players to Watch for Alabama:

Deionte Thompson: Safety 1

Raekwon Davis: DT 2

Quinnen Williams: DT 4

Isaiah Buggs: DT 9

Mack Wilson: LB 3

Anfernee Jennings: Edge 11

Jonah Williams: LT 1

Damien Harris: RB 3

Ross Pierschbacher: OG 9

 

Players to Watch for LSU:

Greedy Williams: CB 1

Devin White: LB 1

Foster Moreau: TE 10

Garrett Brumfield: OG, Week 10 Tape Study

 

Game two: Penn State vs Michigan/ Saturday 11/3, 3:45 PM

Both of these teams have disappointed me at different points in the season but everyone deserves a second chance. Both squads have plenty of high-end NFL talent and the competition will be fantastic.

 

Players to watch for Penn State:

Amani Oruwariye: CB 6

Shareef Miller: Edge 12

Miles Sanders: RB 8

Juwan Johnson: WR 10

Trace McSorley: QB 15

 

Players to Watch for Michigan:

Devin Bush: LB 2

Rashan Gary: DT 3

Lavert Hill: CB 8

Chase Winovich: Edge 10

Shea Patterson: QB 13

 

Game Three: Georgia vs Kentucky/ Saturday 11/3, 3:30 PM

I can not believe Kentucky is actually still relevant this late into the season. The Wildcats actually have some decent players and we have covered Georgia a bunch this season so you should be familiar with their talent.

 

Players to Watch for Georgia:

Deandre Baker: CB 2

JR Reed: Safety 5

D’Andre Walker: LB 8

Isaac Nauta: TE 6

Riley Ridley: WR 12

 

Players to watch for Kentucky:

Josh Allen: Edge 4

Bennie Snell: RB 2

CJ Conrad: TE 9

Derrick Baity: CB, Week 10 Tape Study

 

Tape Study for Week 10

  1. Garrett Brumfield, OG/ LSU
  2. Derrick Baity, CB/ Kentucky
  3. Daniel Jones, QB/ Duke
  4. Kris Boyd, CB/ Texas

 

QB

Name School Movement
1. Justin Herbert Oregon None
2. Dwayne Haskins Ohio State Unranked
3. Daniel Jones Duke Unranked
4. Brett Rypien Boise State None
5. Jarrett Stidham Auburn Down two spots
6. Ryan Finley NC State Down four spots
7. Will Grier West Virginia Down one spot
8. Clayton Thorson North Western None
9. Drew Lock Missouri Down four spots
10. Tyree Jackson   Buffalo   Up two spots  

 

Dwayne Haskins: Haskins was a tape study from earlier in the year, but I decided not to list him because he did not have enough tape. Since I spent the whole week catching up on quarterbacks I have seen enough to say Haskins is number two. He has good arm strength and accuracy when given time to throw. Haskins needs to improve greatly on making good throws under pressure.

 

Daniel Jones: Jones is someone who makes a lot of NFL throws for a team not known for that type of offense. Jones has good footwork and throws with anticipation often. He is coached by several respected QB coaches who all vouch for him. My concerns with Jones are arm strength and mental processing. 

 

Ryan Finley: Finley just does not make enough NFL throws for me to keep him at number two. Too many of his throws are telegraphed by his offense and he almost never makes a read. His arm strength continues to worry me as well.

 

Drew Lock: Lock has some amazing arm talent but his footwork is awful. I have never seen someone throw off balance more often than he does. Lock needs to have his entire base remastered if he wants to be successful in the NFL.

Edge

Name College Movement
1.Nick Bosa Ohio State None
2. Clien Ferrell Clemson None
3. Jachai Polite Florida None  
4. Josh Allen Kentucky Up two spots
5. Montez Sweat Mississippi State Down one spot
6. Zach Allen Boston College Down one spot
7. Oshane Ximines Old Dominion Unranked (week nine tape study)
8. Joe Jackson Miami Down one spot
9. Brian Burns Florida State Down one spot
10. Chase Winovich Michigan Up two spots

 

Oshane Ximines: Ximines might be the best small-school player I have scouted so far this year. He has good pass rushing moves as well as strength. He looks like a prototypical edge rusher but with better than average athletic ability. Level of competition and technique are some concerns.

 

Chase Winovich: Chase Winovich is a colorful character for the Wolverines but his play has backed up the talking so far. Chase has really defined himself as a guy with an endless motor who will get the job done. He is not the most athletic guy in the world, which will limit his upside, but he has proven to be productive.
