Notes from Catchup Games – Part 9

To lead off this column, I wanted to do some work on UCF and three of their prospects.  First of all, WR Tre’Quan Smith, who graduated and decided to leave early for the NFL.  He varies his speed off the line, at times it works as he’ll start slowly and then there’s a little burst […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 8

Leading off this article is Wisconsin CB Nick Nelson.  A redshirt junior entry, the Hawai’i transfer played just the one year at Wisconsin, declaring early after reportedly getting a second round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee.  My one question with that grade is a question of his long speed.  I don’t think he’s […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 7

To lead off this article, I want to look at Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch.  I watched the Wyoming full game and the Oregon and San Diego State cut-up games.  He’s an aggressive and active LB and his best trait is being able to work through the trash and make plays.  When he sees […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 6

First out of the gate, I watched the NC State at Pitt game for two early entry tackles.  I knew very little about NC State’s Will Richardson, but I was impressed with him.  I wouldn’t expect him to be an elite tester at the Combine, and therefore not a pro LT prospect, but at his […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 5

UTEP OG Will Hernandez came out of Senior Bowl week with positive reviews, so it was high time I got to him.  I watched the New Mexico State and Army full games, as well as the Oklahoma Draft Breakdown “Cup-up” game.  In the full games I watched, he was dominant.  He’s a big man, with […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 4

The West Virginia game was the first game back from injury for Texas OT Connor Williams, and considering he had been out for almost two months, he had a good game.  The thing that stood out from the game, is Williams is an aggressive player, who finishes his blocks really well.  There were a number […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 3

When I watched SMU WR Trey Quinn in the Bowl game, he caught swing passes and nothing else.  I watched the early season TCU game and this route tree was much wider.  He finished with 7 catches for 116 yards and a TD, plus threw a nice WR option pass which travelled from the far […]

Notes from Catchup Games – Part 2

With my first catchup game of my second batch, I wanted to look at Boston College DE Harold Landry, who missed the last five games of the year with injury, but hopes to play in the Senior Bowl.  I watched the week two Wake Forest game.  In this one, Landry had a sack and other […]

Notes from Bowl Games – Part Three

Post now updated with FCS and FBS National Championship Game notes. I hadn’t seen Texas A&M this season, so it was my first full game look at WR Christian Kirk.  He had his best stat line of the season with 13 catches for 189 yards and 3 scores.  In my mind, for Draft prospects, this […]

Notes from Bowl Games – Part 2

When I watched Utah DT Lowell Lotulelei last season, he was a flash player.  I was hoping to see more consistency from him in 2017, which was the case, but unfortunately he was consistently non-existent!  The Bowl game however was better.  The old flashes were back, including as a pass rusher, which is highly encouraging.  […]
