NEPD Prospect Preview: Week 3

Andrew Luck 2012 NFL Draft

This guy seems decent.

After a really fun week two, involving a triple OT game, a single OT game, and two storied schools, we are back for more with three great games to scout.

For all of this year’s NFL Draft scouting action, check out the Film Room Archive.

We’re handling two great matchups this week: Stanford vs Arizona and Oklahoma vs Florida State. Staff scout Mike Loyko will be watching the Mississippi State vs LSU game, which he previewed earlier this week.

Matthew Elder at will be scouting Virginia vs North Carolina, Washington vs Nebraska, Tennessee vs Florida, and ASU vs Illinois.

Stanford vs Arizona

#12 Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Luck really shouldn’t need an introduction, but if you need it, this kid is the best QB prospect in college that I have seen in a great while.

#52 David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
While teammate Jonathan Martin (left tackle) gets the majority of the press, DeCastro is a great blocker himself. Great run blocker that struggles out of the phone booth.

#81 Chris Owusu, WR, Stanford
Great 3rd-down and medium receiver – reliable hands and good route-runner.

#5 Nick Foles, QB, Arizona
Foles has an NFL-caliber game but doesn’t always make the best decisions. Could go anywhere from the Top 10 to the 5th round.

#82 Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
Another good intermediate receiver that has battled off-field distractions. Flashes 1st-round talent on occasion.

Oklahoma vs Florida State

#85 Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma
Broyles is a very complete receiver that should go early in the 2012 NFL Draft. Reminds me of a young Deion Branch.

#61 Ben Habern, OC, Oklahoma

#12 Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma
Like Foles, the jury is still out on Jones. We feel he is a Top 5 prospect, but we do think he could improve in the face of pressure.

#5 Greg Reid, CB, Florida State
Reid sticks to receivers like glue – would love to see him matched up against Broyles. This Seminole could easily be a top-50 prospect.

#13 Nigel Bradham, OLB, Florida State
I haven’t watched a ton of Bradham, but he looks like the real deal physically. His range and speed will be tested in this game.

#49 Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State
Jenkins is a physical specimen that plays fast. He will most-likely be a 3-4 OLB at the next level, as he has shown the ability to play in the open field.

    I’m all in on Ryan Broyles, like I was on Nate Solder last year. I thought we could have had Solder in the second round though initially, before his stock went through the roof. I think the same might happen with Broyles.

    This may sound stupid. But if I’m the Colts, I would consider throwing the season, to continue to have a solid team for the years to come. If they suck the rest of the year, they snag luck. They have a franchise quarterback to sit behind Peyton. I’m not sure it gets any better than that.

    It’s unfortunate for the NFL that Peyton Manning and John Elway were banished to the small media markets of Indianapolis and Denver.

    If Manning and Elway had spent their NFL careers playing in Chicago…Dallas…The NFL would be even more popular than it is today.

    Having written that, I believe Andrew Luck should be the QB in New England for the next 15 years. Bob Kraft has enormous influence with the TV marketing of the NFL games. The Pat’s have only four games scheduled for the sleepy 1 AM EST. And two of those four games may be rescheduled late in the regular season.

    Luck in NE. Brady in SF. Matt Barkley in Dallas…That’s about the perfect scenerio for the next few years in the NFL.
