Sun Bowl: Stanford Vs. Pittsburgh (2:00PM EST, CBS)
WR, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford (#19)
Whiteside is a physical specimen that has made some crazy catches this year. Besides that he is a smooth, long strider. He has great body control and instincts.
TE, Kaden Smith, Stanford (#82)
TE isn’t the biggest need for us with the emergence of Herndon, but getting as many physical weapons as possible will help. Smith has the physicality and burst off the line.
RB, Bryce Love, Stanford (#20)
Love is still one of the fastest RBs coming out this year. How much tread does he have left. He has been their bell cow for a while now.
Redbox Bowl: Michigan State Vs Oregon (3:00 PM EST, FOX)
G/C, Jake Hanson, Oregon (#55)
Hanson is very technically sound. He also would flow well in an outside zone, run offense. He just needs to learn to stay disciplined in his pass sets
T/G, Calvin Throckmorton, Oregon (#54)
Throckmorton has been consistently good on the outside for Oregon. Even though his stats are very good, he is no a great mover in space, and should kick inside.
Liberty Bowl: Missouri Vs. Oklahoma State (3:45 PM EST, ESPN)
RB, Justice Hill, Oklahoma State, (#5)
If we can ever get our O-line to be effective in zone blocking, Hill would be perfect for that scheme. His cuts are brilliant, and his instincts and vision are top notch.
Edge/LBer, Jordan Brailford, Oklahoma State (#94)
Brailford has some fluidity to his game. We can either play him as a 4-3 Sam or a 3-4 Jack. I think he fits more of a 4-3 Sam mold.
Taxslayer Bowl: NC. State Vs. Texas A&M (7:30 PM EST, ESPN)
G/C, Garrett Bradbury, NC State (#65)
Bradbury is an interior lineman that has TE athleticism. He plays technically sound ball, and uses leverage to perfection. He can fit any scheme.
G, Terronne Prescod, NC State (#70)
Prescod is a people mover along the line. He bends defenders to his will and constantly opens up giant run lanes. He moves well vertically, but horizontally he has some room for improvement. More of a power man guy.
WR, Kelvin Harmon, NC State (#3)
Harmon is one of the most complete receivers coming out this year. I dare say he is my #1 receiver. From route running to high pointing contested balls. He does it all.
RB, Trayveon Williams, Texas A&M (#5)
For a short, speedy back, Williams is not afraid to take on the beef of the defense. He has great balance, and vision to make his way through tight holes. He can also burn defenders along the edge.
