Seeing as how NY hockey sucks, no NY basketball tonight, and the NFL Thursday game is an uninspiring Vikings/Redskins matchup, if you have a sports fix tonight, college football may be your best bet. We have a great slate with not one but FOUR top 10 ranked teams in action tonight on national TV, with Baylor/Oklahoma in 45 minutes and Oregon/Stanford later. Even without a dog in any fight, you may be able to get a glimpse at some potential talent to intrigue the Jets next year. Some players to keep an eye on:
Oklahoma WR Jalen Saunders- Certainly on the tiny side at 5-9 157, he's probably no more than a return man and slot WR at the next level, but interestingly enough he's deemed a safe prospect, with a low drop rate and great RAC ability. Potential Ace Sanders-type looker at the next level.
Oklahoma RB Damien Williams- A sturdy 5-11 211, he has been a little disappointing this season as his vision isn't great, but he has the size for the NFL and good long speed.
Oklahoma CB Aaron Colvin- I like Colvin a lot, and it's not at CB. He played safety as a sophomore, and I think he can project as a safety in the pros. He's long and has good size (6-0 192), and is physical and aggressive in coverage. However, he's not very quick twitch and may have trouble in man coverage in the pros, which is why I think he's a better S than CB.
Baylor OG Cyril Richardson- This guy is massive at 6-5, 340. He plays to that size in run blocking, as he's a flat out mauler, but he's surprisingly agile and quick for a guy that size. Potential 1st rounder.
Baylor WR Tevin Reese: 1/2 of maybe the best WR duo in the country, Tevin Reese is a speedster who is agile and quick in and out of his breaks. Size likely limits him to the later rounds of the draft.
Baylor WR Antwan Goodley: The other half of GoodReese, I've mentioned Goodley a few times. This guy has seam splitting speed, the kind of speed that out-runs angles. However, he's not some lanky skinny fast guy... the guy looks like a running back at 5-10, 225. He squats like 600 pounds. He weighs as much as Anquan Boldin while being 3 inches shorter and a lot more athletic. Perhaps more athlete than WR right now, but RB type run power with 4.4 speed is intriguing.
Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk: Just watch him play, I won't even get into Seastrunk except to say that I would be the opposite of upset if he's our first pick next year.
