BIG GAMES THIS WEEK


#10 Georgia Bulldogs (2-0) at #26 South Carolina Gamecocks (1-1) = The big questions in this games are; have the Gamecocks knocked off the cobwebs from the beating they took from the Aggies, and can they get the strong play from the Quarterback position that they need to win or do they need to look elsewhere? Is Todd Gurley really as good overall as he was in one game against Clemson? I’m betting we see a better Gamecock team than we did opening weekend. This should be a back and forth one if Mike Davis is healthy. This could be the best top Running backs in College matchup of the year. MY PREDICTION = Georgia 37 S. Carolina 31

 
#11 UCLA Bruins (2-0) vs. Texas Longhorns (1-1) (AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas) = There are a lot of questions for both teams going into this game. Texas has been strong on defense when they get some rest, but has shown a lack of depth, and an ability to get tired and be eventually run over. Offensively will they open it up, and move the ball to give their defense time to rest as they season the young Tyrone Swoopes and the quagmire that is their makeshift offensive line. UCLA has spent the whole offseason listening to how good they should be, but has yet to be impressive on either side of the ball. So I wonder what we will get. I expect this game to be close for the first 3 quarters then for some kind of big play or turn over to get the win. MY PREDICTION = UCLA 27 Texas 19

Young Unknown Players who should make a Major Impact this College Football Season 2014



QB

Maty Mauk, QB, Missouri, So, 6-0, 200- holds national high school career records for passing completions (1,353), passing attempts (2,110), passing yards (18,932), total yards (22,681), and passing touchdowns. Finally gets the chance to take over the reins of the Tigers after filling in a few games last season.
DeShaun Watson, QB, Clemson, Fr, 6-3, 190- 5 star recruit who has come to Clemson at just the right time to compete for the starting job. Even if he doesn’t start right away, expect him to have the job by the end of the season.

RB

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU, Fr, 6-1, 224- Those that have seen him play compare him to a cross between Adrian Peterson and Eric Dickerson. Great size, speed, agility and most importantly vision. Is he the next Great back of the storied SEC?
Barry Sanders jr, RB, Stanford, So, 5-10, 192- I just said Barry Sanders, so enough said right lol. Unlike his dad he will get to see the field full time a year earlier. But like his dad he’s in an offense that is built to run the ball.
Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama, So, 6-3, 244- Broke a 60 year old record national rushing record with 12,232 rushing yards. Averaged 10.9 yds per carry only 35 carries, Is this the year he gets a chance to shine or will Yeldon get all the carries?
Shock Linwood, RB, Baylor, So, 5-8, 200-Ok you may have already hear of this guy, he had almost 900 yards last year as the backup averaging 6.9 yds per carry, and was named Freshman All-american. Expect him if healthy to challenge for 2k plus.

WR

Malachi Dupree, WR, LSU, Fr, 6-3, 188- #1 WR in HS, who has great size and speed in a position of big need for the Tigers, who have produced some quality Wr’s over the years.
Ricky Seals-Jones, WR, Texas A&M, R-Fr, 6-5, 225- The cousin of Eric Dickerson finally gets to hit the field after taking a redshirt season to rehab a knee injury from his Sr year in Highschool. Has the unique mix of TE size with the speed and hands of a wide receiver.
Angelo Jean-Louis, WR, Marshall, Fr, 6-0, 175- Originally committed to Miami(Fl), but failed to qualify academically. An explosive guy on a team with a great QB, who loves to sling the ball.

TE

OJ Howard, TE, Alabama, So, 6-6, 240- Everything you can ask for in a TE, Big, can block, and can catch like a wide receiver. Should have a break out year with Bama
Austin Hooper, TE, Stanford, R-Fr, 6-4, 254- Next in line to become another great TE at Stanford

OL

Cam Robinson, LT, Alabama, Fr, 6-6, 325- Number 1 OL HS recruit, showed up early in the spring and already the starting Left Tackle at Alabama, enough said.
Damian Prince, OT, Maryland, Fr, 6-5, 300- Should be the anchor to a really young but talented offensive line at Maryland.
Derwin Gray, OG, Maryland, Fr, 6-5, 300- Another talent on the young line there, should really blossom this season.
Bentley Spain, OT, UNC, Fr, 6-6, 310- Got in early and impressed in the spring, should be starting Left Tackle
Kent Perkins, OT, Texas, So, 6-5, 330- A beast who has managed to impress Coach Strong with his strength, and agility for his size.
Zach Banner, OT, USC, So, 6-9, 345- A Gynormous man who will instill fear in those in front of him this season.

DL

Andrew Brown, DT, Virginia, Fr, 6-4, 300- Gatorade National player of the year in High school. A penetrating defensive tackle who had 18 sacks in Highschool.
Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M, Fr, 6-5, 250- Rated the #1 player overall by several sites. Had 20.5 sacks as a sr, including one game with 8.5, and he’s going to a really bad defense that needs him.
Malik McDowell, DT, Michigan State, Fr, 6-6. 292- Should be in the rotation, and see plenty of time on the field for one of the top defenses in the country.
Chad Thomas, DE, Miami(FL), Fr, 6-5, 233- Many mention his great size, and agility. All of them mention how smart he is, and plays.

LB

Connor Strachan, MLB, Boston College, Fr, 6-2, 240- Not many big inside linebackers can run as well as Connor, with his 4.4 speed at 240. Now add in that the offense is likely to struggle so he should be on the field a lot. Expect him to join a long list of great linebackers in the history of BC.
Nyles Morgan, ILB, Notre Dame, Fr, 6-2, 233- Fast, Athletic, mean, and from Chicago, things the Fighting Irish love. Should be a starter by the end of the season, and should impress.
Raekwon McMillan, ILB, Ohio State, Fr, 6-2, 240- Fast and talented. Already pushing older studs for playing time

CB

Tony Brown, CB, Alabama, Fr, 6-0, 190- Reminds many of Daryl Revis, Strong, quick, and smart. Should be starting and making a name for himself.
William Likely, CB, Maryland, So, 5-7, 175- This guy is a big time threat returning punts, and kicks. Capable of scoring anytime he gets the ball.
Jalen Tabor, CB, Florida, Fr, 6-1, 188- Should have the starting job, or at least the nickel job by the end of the season. Tall for a corner, athletic, and physical.

S

Su’a Cravens, S, USC, So, 6-1, 215- Freshman All-american who was all over the field last year.
Jabril Peppers, S, Michigan, Fr, 6-1, 211- Stud who will start at Free this season. Top 10 overall in most rating services. Can play Cb, very athletic.

K/P

Daniel Carlson, K, Auburn, R-Fr, 6-4, 216- 2-Time all Colorado with a rocket leg, who could be the deciding factor if Auburn plays for the National title this year.

My 2014 NFL Mock Draft Rounds 1&2


2014 NFL Mock Draft


1. Houston Texans- Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo, 6-3, 248, 4.6 = This could easily be Clowney, but the Texans have a long history of going the unexpected route. Mack would fit really well as a pass rushing OLB, who can also cover in their new 3-4 defense.

2. St. Louis Rams (FWash)- Jadevon Clowney, DE, SCar, 6-5, 274, 4.5 = The Rams really need a tackle, but a specimen like Clowney is impossible to pass on. Though he’s the most talented player to come out in a while, there is talk that he’s lazy which can hurt players on draft day.

3. Jacksonville Jags- Blake Bortles, QB, UCF, 6-3, 230, 4.7 = The Jags need a young hard throwing QB, who can eventually take the reigns, and Bortles fits the bill.

4. Cleveland Browns- Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M, 6-0, 210, 4.45 = Could easily see another QB here, but nobody is more unique and polarizing that Manziel. He is pure hit or miss, but if he does hit, he could be the franchise Quarterback Browns fans have dreamed of for so many year. Making him impossible to pass on.

5. Oakland Raiders- Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville, 6-2, 205, 4.67 = The Raiders need a QB, and Bridgewater’s slight slip may be just what they need to finally turn things around.

6. Atlanta Falcons- Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn, 6-5, 320, 4.9 = Robinson is one of the most unique prospects to come out of College in a long time. A mixture of enormous size, strength, and speed for his size make him impossible to pass on. Especially with their problems running the ball last year.

7. Tampa Bay Bucs- Jake Mathews, OT, Texas A&M, 6-5, 305, 5.0 = The son of Bruce Mathews is the perfect start to rebuilding the worst Offense in the NFL. He will probably start off inside at Guard, before eventually moving out to taking over the Left Tackle position.

8. Minnesota Vikings- Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State, 5-11, 197, 4.5 = Dennard is a blanket downfield, which is exactly what the Vikings need to take over the other side of Xavier Rhodes.

9. Buffalo Bills- Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson, 6-1, 205, 4.47 = While the trade for Williams, might nix the need. Watkins the play maker is just too good to pass on.

10. Detroit Lions- Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State, 6-0, 200, 4.5 = The Lions expected a lot more out of their secondary last year and just didn’t come close. With their top choice Dennard already gone, Gilbert is a great backup choice.

11. Tennessee Titans- Dee Ford, DE, Auburn, 6-2, 243, 4.6 = Its been a long time since the Titans had any kind’ve of edge pass rush. Ford is a great chance to get that.

12. NYGiants- Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina, 6-4, 245, 4.6 = The Giants offense has become stagnant with no playmaker at tight end. Many think Ebron is the best of both worlds, a great blocker and receiver.

13. St.Louis Rams- Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan, 6-7, 315, 5.0 = Having taken the best available player Clowney earlier, Lewan is a top tier OT that fills a big need.

14. Chicago Bears- HaSean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama, 6-1, 208, 4.5 = The Bears are mediocre at best at safety and could really use some quality new blood to get the defense back to the old days.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers- Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville, 6-2, 208, 4.57 = This is a nice longer solution for aging free agent Ryan Clark at free safety.

16. Dallas Cowboys- Aaron Donald, DT, 6-1, 288, 4.9 = It’s a position of need, and the Cowboys will be getting a blue collar hard working guy who does more before 10 am than most people do all day. Who also has as many awards in college as a defensive lineman can have. 

17. Baltimore Ravens- Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M, 6-5, 225, 4.5 = The Ravens badly need a big possession receiver that can allow them to stretch the field, and this guy has the speed to go deep as well. The one guy Johnny football will probably miss the most from leaving college.

18. NY Jets- Marquise Lee, WR, USC, 6-0, 195, 4.49 = Could see others here, but Lee has proven in the past that he will go deep, over the middle, and anywhere else it takes to make the catch. Something the Jets really need.

19. Miami Dolphins- Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama, 6-6, 310, 5.1 = The Dolphins gave up 58 sacks last year, and this is a start to replacing the gaping holes in the line.

20. Arizona Cardinals- Kony Ealey, DE/OLB, Missouri, 6-5, 275, 4.7 = The Cardinals have yet to get any kind’ve of pass rush. They hoped Okafor would take over last season, but an early injury might make him a back up to Ealey.

21. Green Bay Packers- Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech, 6-6, 255, 4.6 = One of the things that really had the Packers offense going was JerMichael Finley spreading the field at TE. His last major injury has many hoping he will put up his cleats rather than come back and being crippled. Amaro can spread the field, catches like a wideout, and can actually block.

22. Philadelphia Eagles- Ed Reynolds, S, Stanford, 6-2, 206, 4.5 = The Eagles have a long history of great defenses who’s tones were set by the safety position. Now they have mediocre players there, and free agents.

23. KC Chiefs- Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU, 6-6, 235, 4.5 = The Chiefs desperately need a big quality wide out, and if nobody earlier figures out how good Benjamin can be like I believe then the Chiefs could luck out here. Benjamin has the size of a TE, the side of a Wideout, and the wingspan of a goalie net. 

24. Cinn Bengals- Jason Verrett, CB, TCU, 5-10, 176, 4.4 = They are old at this position, except for Hall who’s coming off a brutal Achilles injury.

25. San Diego Chargers- Louis Nix, NG, Notre Dame, 6-2, 345, 5.1 = A big Raji like player to fill a big hole that Chargers have. If he can keep his weight under control, he could be a pro bowler for years to come.

26. Cleve Browns(From Indy)- CJ Mosley, ILB, Alabama, 6-2, 232, 4.6 = With Jackson gone, the Browns 3-4 has a big hole, and why not the best inside linebacker who comes from a team that knows how to win.

27. New Orleans Saints- Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA, 6-4, 248, 4.48 = Injuries have hurt the Saints lately at this position, and Barr a top 5 talent would be impossible to pass on at this time in the draft.

28. Carolina Panthers- Odell Beckham, WR, LSU, 5-11, 193, 4.47 = At some point if the Panthers don’t get someone for Newton to throw to other than himself, its on you as a Franchise.

29. New England Pats- Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State, 6-3, 210, 4.5 = The Pats need some youth at WR, and this is exactly what they will get from Robinson. Who reminds some of Anquan Boldin, and could be the number one option by the end of the year.

30. San Francisco 49ers- Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 194, 4.4 = With the loss of Tarrell Brown, and the lack of depth, this is a good pick for the 49ers here.

31. Denver Broncos- Jordan Mathews, WR, Vanderbilt, 6-3, 209, 4.5 = With Decker gone The Broncos, need some more people for Manning to throw to. Mathews would be a bigger name if he had played for some of the more heralded schools.

32. Seattle Seahawks- Zach Martin, OT, Notre Dame, 6-4, 305, 5.2 = The Superbowl champs gave up 44 sacks last year, and need to add depth to the line. Martin is a guy who can play tackle and guard.

2nd Round
