- Andrew Luck is the real deal, and I’m going to take every chance I get to mention how much I like him. UCLA did a nice job pressuring him and taking away a lot of options in coverage, but Luck adjusted and took what was given him. He showed off his field awareness and accuracy on his first TD pass of the game to Ryan Whalen. He spun around, regrouped and hit led him perfectly into the corner.
- I really liked what I saw from Cameron Heyward against Miami. A guy his size dropping back into coverage and picking off that pass from Jacory Harris is special. He could be the next Richard Seymour.
- Another guy I like from OSU was Daniel “Boom” Herron. He reminds me of Justin Forsett. He’s only a junior and likely won’t leave early since he’s splitting time with Brandon Saine, but he could end up being the better pro prospect of the two.
- Florida safety Ahmad Black has already done a lot to boost his stock this season. He bailed out the Gators with a key interception against USF on Saturday, and played an all-around great game. He’s looked like a solid 2nd or 3rd round pick.
- I know they’ve only played Tennessee Tech and Louisiana-Monroe, but Ryan Mallett has completed 73.1 pct of his passes. That is a huge step in the right direction. He completed just over 55 pct in 2009 and was below 50 pct in 2007 with Michigan. A player with his ability in that offense needs to be around 60 percent to be considered a legitimate 1st-round prospect.
- How bad is the ACC? (I know that’s unrelated to the draft, but had to say something.)
