Here are the draft eligible prospects we will be watching on Saturday night when Stanford visits Pullman, Washington.

Stanford is loaded with top tier draftable prospects, including the projected top pick for the 2012 NFL Draft, Andrew Luck. While Washington State only has a few prospects to watch, they do have a QB to watch who wasn’t on the radar to begin the season.

Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford- The consensus top pick in April’s upcoming draft and the only thing that could change that is a severe injury. The guy is a stud.

Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford- Martin is one of the top 2 or 3 tackles in the country. Only a junior, he is a lock for the first round if he decides to declare.

David DeCastro, OG, Stanford- Like Martin, DeCastro is one of the top lineman at his position. He can be absolutely dominating at times, and I recently projected him as a mid first round pick in my first mock of the year.

Chris Owusu, WR, Stanford- Owusu burst on to the college football scene a few years back and looked like he was destined for a first round pick. Since then injuries have derailed him a little bit. Still has a lot of talent and potential to move up draft boards again.

Marshall Lobbestaell, QB, Washington State- Lobbestaell is one of my sleepers for this year’s draft. He started the year as the backup to Jeff Tuel, but took over once Tuel was injured week 1. I have seen Lobbestaell play twice this season and have been impressed by his decision making and poise in the pocket. He orchestrated an unbelievable comeback against Colorado a few weeks back, including a 60+ yard TD pass in the game’s final seconds. Late word has Tuel being cleared to play, but we’re not sure he’ll play.

*Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State (So.)- Wilson is probably the Cougars best player. He is a game breaking WR who makes a ton of big plays. He can be very inconsistent at times, dropping easy throws and then making a ridiculously tough catch. He is one of the country’s leading WR and has the potential to be a top 3-4 round pick in an upcoming draft.

    September, 2012:

    Which #12 will be in a Patriots uniform? Brady or Luck?

    See how the 12’s are merging for the Mayan year 2012 draft?

    Trade Brady and Gisele for Luck and Marie-Helen.

    Paul Wulff said he was absolutely playing in this game. The feeling is that they may go back to using a duel QB offense.


    I agree with you on Lobbestaell, I confused him for Tuel early in the season.
