|Terrence Toliver WR LSU|
|Elite height. Great overall size. Built like a prototypical possession receiver. Long arms and big hands. Gives a solid effort as a blocker.|
|Incredibly inconsistent. Never came close to living up to his potential. Very unreliable hands; drops far too many passes, including some very easy ones. Limited speed; not a threat to stretch the field. Arrested in 2010 for his role in a fight.|
|Tolliver is immensely talented but never lived up to expectations at LSU. He was given every opportunity to succeed, starting over 30 games and playing in over 50 but showed very little improvement. Someone will roll the dice on him, because he definitely has potential, but he shouldn’t be counted on for anything substantial and may struggle to make a roster if his work ethic remains a concern.|
Nate Solder – OT – Colorado
Solder’s stock is in free fall after getting beat like a drum against Cal this past weekend. Solder, who is 6’8″, simply lacked the athleticism to keep pace with Cal’s speed rushers. His footwork was slow and he had trouble staying low enough to get his hands into their bodies. He entered the season as my top-rated offensive tackle – mainly because it’s a pretty weak group – but it’s unlikely he’ll remain in that top spot when I update the list.
Terrence Toliver – WR – LSU
Toliver entered the year as the top senior receiver (not that that title means much considering the mass exodus last year) but he hasn’t been a factor so far this season. He has just six receptions for 47 yards and doesn’t appear to be a big part of LSU’s game plan on offense.
Christian Ponder – QB – Florida State
Potential 1st-round picks rarely have a performance like Ponder’s against Oklahoma. He completed just 39.3 percent of his passes while throwing two interceptions. Oklahoma may have the best defense he’ll face all season, so this game will definitely stick in the mind of scouts.
Daniel Thomas – RB – Kansas State
Thomas is in the mix to be the first running back off the board in this year’s draft, and he’s already making his case. He’s racked up nearly 400 yards on the ground this season, including 234 against a respectable UCLA defense. On 49 attempts against UCLA and Missouri State he’s averaging 7.6 yards per carry.
Kendall Hunter – RB – Oklahoma State
Hunter leads all running backs in rushing yards this season (but trails Denard Robinson overall). He rushed for over 250 yards against Washington State and followed it up with 157 against Troy. Safe to say he’ll face some tougher defenses in the Big 12, but it’s still a nice start for Hunter.
