Pro Prospects to Watch For During Bowl Season


Recommended Posts

Starting with today's games

New Mexico Bowl

Fresno State:

CB A.J. Jefferson #15 – Jefferson is a rising draft prospects, and player that some scouts think has the talent to be a 3rd round pick. He has good size a 6-0 190 pounds and good ball skills, but because of lack of football IQ and some scouts saying he has an attitude problem could end up falling to around the 6th round.

RB Ryan Mathews #21 – Mathews is a junior and there is some talk about him coming out early. He has everything you look for in an every down back, with the size (5-11, 215), speed and agility to be a productive player in the NFL. If he does declare should be a 2nd round.

RB Lonyae Miller #1 – Miller is more of a power running back who lacks the big time break away speed, but does have a draftable grade and should be drafted somewhere around the 6th round.

WR Seyi Ajirotutu #2 - Ajirotutu has good size at 6-3 210, but the question mark is his speed, he has good hands, but he looks like more of a 4.6 guy so right now is around a 7th round pick.


DE John Fletcher #91 – Fletcher is a good size defensive end at 6-6 272 pounds and has decent speed and quickness. He might fit best as a 3-4 defensive end. Right now is around a 7th round pick.

St Petersburg Bowl

When looking at the NFL Draft prospects in the St. Petersburg Bowl in 2010, watch the Scarlet Knights. The big name in this game will be on the offensive line. Although Left Tackle Anthony Davis says he won’t think about the NFL Draft until after the St. Petersburg Bowl it’s not stopping those watching the watching the prospects from speculation. The guy that some compare to Eugene Monroe could be in the Top 3 Offensive Tackles if he decides to make the leap. Also on the right side of the Offensive line you will find a possible mid to late round choice in Kevin Haslam. For skill positions check out Tim Brown at Wide Receiver. Yeah, he is only 5′8″ but he can make some plays.

Aside from being the best Cornerback in the Big East, Devin McCourty is a monster on Special Teams. Seven blocked kicks in his career. He has a twin brother (Jason, Titans) already in the NFL which would be great for making that transition. Also on the defensive side of the ball for the Scarlet Knights you could see a late rounder in Ryan D’Imperio.

The NFL Draft prospect spotlight for Central Florida will be shining on Defensive Tackle Torrell Troup. The big man clogging up the middle has helped this defense rank #4 in the nation against the run.
