Primetime Prospects to Watch : Week 11

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Not all that interested in Bills/Jets Thursday Night Football?  Or just want to get a jump on the weekend?  No matter the case, NEPD has your viewers’ guide for the key prospects to watch in the prime time match ups, as well as a quick stock check on prospects moving up and down the draft board.

Who’s Up:

Entire Alabama Front 7: I’m kind of kidding here, kind of not.  Alabama has dominated all season long led by DT’s A’Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed.  Last Saturday night, LSU got a front row seat.   The defensive front bottled up Leonard Fournette all game long, embarrassing a talent laden LSU offensive line along the way.  Robinson, Reed, DE Jonathan Allen and ILB Reggie Ragland all stood out all game long.

Alabama RB Derrick Henry: Henry’s draft stock is really catching steam.  Alabama rode Henry to the Promised Land last week by the tune of  38 carries, 210 yards and 3 touchdowns.  A physical specimen who can carry the load for four quarters, I believe Henry could be productive on a NFL roster today.

If you’re looking for major intrigue between powerhouse schools, Week 8 isn’t for you. However that doesn’t mean the NFL Draft evaluators are taking a week off, and neither are the prospects. Some college football is better than no college football, right? Let’s take a look at the matchups I will be playing closest attention to this Saturday.

Iowa State vs #2 Baylor 12:00 ESPN

No, I don’t believe this will be much of a contest. But thanks to a prospect filled Baylor Bears’ roster card this noon game is worth tuning into. In case you haven’t heard, arguably the best story in college football Baylor WR Corey Coleman has absolutely set the world on fire and looks to continue that vs Iowa State. (more…)

College. Football. Playoffs.  Those are three words that by themselves hold much meaning to many Americans.  Putting them all in one phrase  was considered impossible and mind blowing in the past.  Now this is a reality, and that reality is just a few days away.  However unlike the NFL playoffs, there will be meaningful post-season football that does not include playoff games.  Let’s dive into prospects to be looking out for in these crucial games during your boring family New Years Day party.

Saturday Slate: Week 7 College Prospects to Watch.

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at South Carolina

NEPD Staff Writer: CJ Sousa

Wow. WOW. What a weekend in college football. Week 6 saw huge upsets, thrilling conclusions to games, and with Katy Perry getting substantial ESPN TV time, everyone truly went home winners Saturday (Except you, Alabama fans). Week 7 poses some just as important big time match-ups, but first let’s recap quickly.

SEC Battle Royale: It was truly separation Saturday in the SEC. First, Mississippi State took care of Texas A&M, and in convincing fashion. MSU QB Dak Prescott looked like a Heisman contender, and even though Prescott’s counterpart Kenny Hill compiled nice stats, he didn’t play so well. His favorite receiver was MSU LB Richie Brown, who caught 3 interceptions. The prospect everyone is talking about, MSU OLB Benardrick McKinney impressed throughout. Great flow, great anticipation… I’ve officially bought into the Junior ILB/OLB’s hype. In what was one of the ugliest games you’ll ever watch, Florida remains a contender in the SEC East after outlasting Tennessee 10-9. UF DE Dante Fowler Jr. was an animal and dominated the under matched Volunteers’ line. (more…)
