Holiday Homework: Nebraska vs South Carolina

Stephon Gilmore NFL Draft Patriots

Stephon Gilmore will be an intriguing defensive back in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Two teams that are disappointed that they are not in BCS bowls will meet up in the Capital One bowl when Nebraska faces off with South Carolina.

Here are the 2012 NFL Draft Prospects in the game.

South Carolina’s Top Prospect

WR Alshon Jeffery

Jeffery is an incredibly talented receiver that has had a poor year production wise. When motivated, he shows the physical ability to dominate a football game. Playing against the tough Nebraska secondary will be a great test.

Others to Watch: DE Melvin Ingram, CB Stephon Gilmore, DE Devin Taylor, OL Rokevious Watkins

Nebraska’s Top Prospect

CB Alfonzo Dennard

An incredibly physical cornerback, Dennard has had some great games against top competition, shutting down the likes of Iowa’s Marvin McNutt. If he can stick with South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery than he will solidify his Top 20 stock.

Others to Watch: LB Lavonte David, DL Jared Crick (Injured)
