Primetime Prospects to Watch: Week 9

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

NEPD Staff Writer CJ Sousa

Every week is important, but no month is more important in the college football season than November.  With that in mind, let’s look at who’s been our biggest movers up and down the draft board thus far.

Who’s Up:

Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis:  Let’s start with Lynch.  He’s gone from just “another guy” to potentially “the guy”.  We knew he had the physical attributes, but we didn’t know he would develop so quickly.  He is far from a finished product, but his raw physical attributes, impressive size and surprising accuracy on his throws has entered him into the conversation for first quarterback off the board.

Andrew Billings, NT, Baylor: One of my overall favorite players in the country.  Billings has easily been the most dominant player along the Baylor defensive front all season long.  Easily tosses offensive linemen out of his way, as he also has great technique and keeps his pad level down.  He has thrown his name into day one consideration as of this moment.

Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor:  If James Jones is a ‘touchdown machine’ for the Packers, Coleman is a touchdown guarantee for Baylor. (more…)

The Big 12’s talent pool is definitely shifted towards the offensive side of the ball with wide open offensive schemes succeeding in Baylor, Oklahoma and OK St. If we do take a look at the defenses there is a position that doesn’t lack for NFL caliber talent. The defensive end position has some legitimate talent. With the rankings here I definitely went with talent and upside putting Oakman over Reed.

The 2014 Draft was particularly strong at offensive tackle and wide receiver with those two positions making up 6 out of the first 12 selections. We also saw two blue chip defensive prospects in Jadaveon Clowney and Khalil Mack go in the top 5. Then of course was the notorious Johnny Football going to the dormant Browns late in the first. Most of the headlines were stolen by the magnetic but volatile former Aggie QB.
