NCAA Football: Iowa State at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Music City Bowl: Purdue Vs. Auburn (1:30 PM EST, ESPN)

WR, Darius Slayton, Auburn (#81)

Slayton is a deep threat that has just enough speed to get past defenders. Outside of that, he isn’t great at contested balls.

LB, Deshaun Davis, Auburn (#57)

Davis is a tough, angry LBer that does well to stack and shed blockers. He isn’t great in coverage though.

DT, Derrick Brown, Auburn (#5)

Brown is interesting. He has the talent to be as dominant as anyone, but is extremely inconsistent

DT, Dontavius Russell, Auburn (#95)

Doesn’t show much in terms of pass rush, but shows stoutness against the run. He can take on blocks, and keeps a powerful base.

QB, Jarrett Stidham, Auburn (#8)

Stidham is generally pretty accurate, and a good decision maker. Unfortunately, he is incredibly inconsistent

Camping World Bowl: West Virginia Vs. Syracuse (5:15 PM EST, ESPN)

OT, Yodny Cajuste, West Virginia (#55)

Cajuste covers all the bases as a tackle. He has perfect size and length. There are no mobility issues. He just needs to start doing some yoga and get more flexible.

OT, Cody Conway, Syracuse (#60)

Conway is functional at everything he does, but won’t overpower anyone. He has done a good job against some of the better edge rushers in the ACC.

WR, David Sills, West Virginia (#13)

Sills is one of the better deep threats coming out. He isn’t so much a speed guy as much as he is a long strider. He does have some hands issues.

LB, David Long, West Virginia, (#11)

Long is a bit hard to project at the next level. He is undersized, but is most comfortable running north and south. He doesn’t have the sideline to sideline speed you want.

Alamo Bowl: Iowa State Vs. Washington State (9:00 PM EST, ESPN)

OT, Andre Dillard, Washington State (#60)

Dillard is a very smooth mover. He has the foot quickness to own an outside zone scheme. What he lacks is strength and technique. An interesting developmental prospect.

RB, David Montgomery, Iowa State (#32)

Montgomery is my favorite RB in the draft. Like Penny and Hunt before him, David is a wizard at making people miss. He is sturdy, and is a load to bring down.

WR, Hakeem Butler, Iowa State (#18)

Butler is the kind of low mid round receiver that I get my hopes up for. His catch radius is out of this world, and is a pretty good in and out of his breaks as well.

CB, Brian Peavy, Iowa State (#10)

Peavy is a bit on the smaller side, but damn is he aggressive. He is feisty in man coverage, and very willing to throw his body around in the run game.

QB, Gardner Minshew, Washington State (#16)

Minshew has the ability to make some amazing tight window throws. At the same time he will also miss some easy crossers right in front of him. There is something there worth developing.
