Edge class after Chase Young is said to be risky.... e.g.
5. Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State (Stats: 28 TKLs, 9.0 TFLs, 5.0 Sacks in 8 games)
Where He Wins – Hand Placement: Unlike Okwara, Gross-Matos has great hand placement. Off the snap, he is quick to get his hands inside, where he can control opposing lineman and with his size and power he can easily control the POA. He has a significant length that allows him to outreach his opponents as well.
Needs To Improve – Bend/Flexibility: Gross-Matos is 6’5″, 265-pounds of sheer muscle and because of it he lacks flexibility. Since he doesn’t pose a threat to take the corner, tackles can focus on stuffing him at the line-of-scrimmage.

Sat Morn) ) )
The Giants do not play until Monday night. That gives them more time prepare!... and us more time to talk about college players. Lets start the morning b y taking brief look at who has declared to come out as a undecclassman-
Declared for the 2020 NFL Draft
Trystan Colon-Castillo, C, Missouri - Day 3 prospect 4th-7th round. Don't know why he came out.
Cam Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State - This dude is not playing his bowl game. Shame. here is what one of his own linebackers thinks of the decision: E. Thompson Jr. @im3fly ->If you invested everything into your university & teammates you’ll play in your bowl game. 🤷🏾♂️
<<This not playing in a bowl game is ok I guess if you are truly a top ten prospect. But otherwise...>>
Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF - Has size 6-3 and 212 pounds Not so much speed.
Jordan Elliott, DT, Missouri - This guy is a DT who is highly thought off in the coaching community i do not think he has lived up to the hype.
Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State - HERE IS OUR GUY! Yetur WILL BE PLAYING IN HIS BOWL GAME!! Attaboy!
Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Oregon State - Interesting player in a deep WR class should val pretty far. I like that he continually year over year got better.
Hodgins had a breakout season in 2019. He finished the year with 86 catches, 1,171 yards and an impressive 13 touchdowns for the in 2019. He first broke out onto the national radar last season when he caught 59 passes for 876 yards and five touchdowns. Simply put, Hodgins has gotten better with each passing year. His performance saw him named to the 2019 Biletnikoff Award watch list and to the 2019 preseason All-Pac-12 second team.
EYE ON Hodgins<---
Anthony McFarland, RB, Maryland - Not sure why he came out.. Dealt with a lingering high-ankle sprain limited his impact throughout the team’s 2019 campaign.
Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri - Won't be able to separate from defenders in the NFL.
Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU - A Bit overrated. Don't like.
Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado - MY MAN.... Shaboom... love this guy. After I started talking him up his name has kind of caught fire and he has been climbing. "An absolute monster with the ball in his hands.”
ESPN’s Mel Kiper places Shenault at No. 12 on his big board:
“Shenault is such a fun prospect, and he’s moving up after back-to-back great games, which included this tremendous touchdown catch. He plays wide receiver like a running back and is stellar after the catch. The Colorado staff has been smart in moving him up all over the field to get the ball in his hands, even playing him as a Wildcat quarterback at times. Shenault had 86 catches for 1,011 yards and 11 total touchdowns (five rushing) in 2018, and he has four receiving TDs and two rushing scores this season. Although he isn’t as developed of a route runner as the other receivers in my top 25, that should come with more reps. He has the versatility and traits that will have NFL teams interested.”
Where will he be drafted I say second round others say 1st...
J.J. Taylor, RB, Arizona -Wow finally a name I do not know...
Josh Uche, LB, Michigan - About the 9th ranked LB -Uche has led the team in sacks in the past two seasons, racking up 7.5 in 2019 after finishing 2018 with 7. He said he will play in Michigan’s bowl game!
Of These Names Most Interested In: Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State // Isaiah Hodgins, WR, Oregon State // Laviska Shenault, WR, Colorado // Josh Uche, LB, Michigan
I remember Ruiz from IMG Academy where he was at one time the #1 overall center recruit out of IMG Academy. I think the best he made out in college was 3rd team All Big 10 but I might be wrong. Don't think he's quite lived up to No 1 potential probably should stay in school but I hear he is a good guy. Athletic and a great puller fro a center gets second level and knows how to find people. Whats better is is own reach blocks allow his guards to pull. He's a nice prospect [inning down a round for him will be difficult...
I think LG Ben Bredeson is perhaps the best of the the group at Michigan as fat as O line. Built like the prototypical NFL guard at 6’5 and 320 pounds, and operates with a sound and clean base. Outstanding with his zone tracks, Bredeson clears space past the line of scrimmage. But Ruiz represents a place of need and in... maybe 4th round!!! I think the Washington Center & Ruiz should both be considered as later rounds option for Center should things not work out with Mr Badazz.

Yetur Gross-Matos, EDGE, Penn State-
As a sophomore, Gross-Matos earned the distinction of somewhat raw physical freak. At 6-foot-5 and over 260 pounds, the 20-year-old edge rusher had eight sacks and 20 tackles for loss. He wasn't consistently winning at the point of attack as a pass rusher though.
As a junior, Gross-Matos' traditional numbers didn't improve -- eight sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss in 10 games -- but, importantly, he demonstrated a clear step forward using his hands against pass protectors while maintaining his sturdiness against the run. In 2018, YGM looked like a specimen who mainly relied on his athletic superiority to win. This year, he's used finesse to beat blockers, and he's certainly not any less impressive physically as a 21-year-old.
For someone who'll turn 22 in February, YGM earned the label of someone with an arrow pointing up at a premier position. He needed to polish his game quite a bit even after his breakout sophomore campaign, and he did. YGM is probably going to crush his combine workout too, so he'll (likely) check important boxes during the pre-draft process. And his improvement as a junior has probably locked him into Round 1.
Antoine Winfield Jr., DB, Minnesota
Winfield had flashed throughout his Minnesota career; he just repeatedly got injured. The defensive back with NFL bloodlines finally enjoyed a clean bill of health this season and thrived on the back end with 83 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, and an eye-popping seven interceptions.
At 5-foot-10 and around 200 pounds, he'll be on the smaller size for the traditional safety position. However, that position really doesn't exist anymore in the NFL. Safeties have essentially become "slot defenders" who occasionally play the deep portions of the field. Winfield isn't the twitchiest defensive back in this class, yet his instincts and ball skills are outstanding, and he's a force in the run game.
In 2018, he had 17 tackles and a pick in four games. In 2017, two pass breakups and 20 tackles in four contests. Staying on the field all season for the Golden Gophers and loading the stat sheet was huge for Winfield's draft stock.
Alex Leatherwood, OT, Alabama
Leatherwood simply was not good at right guard last season for the Crimson Tide. Too often he was overwhelmed by power, and that lack of functional strength on the inside led to him getting overly anxious to get his hands on defensive linemen before they could get into his body. The result? A fair amount of off-balance "lunges," which are never good for a blocker.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pounder has a body to play tackle and is able to tap into his athletic gifts there more than in a phone booth on the interior. And he's flourished at left tackle in 2019 for the Crimson Tide. Leatherwood's athletic gifts are easy to see in every game. He glides in pass protection and it isn't a difficult task for him to get to the second level on a screen or combo block. I'm talking about the No. 1 offensive tackle and No. 4 overall recruit in the 2017 recruiting class here. He's super-talented.
Could Leatherwood add some weight/power once he reaches the NFL? Yes, definitely. Needs to. But his pass protection is reliable, he has long arms, and has almost totally removed his tendency to lunge at defenders. In something you rarely see at the collegiate level pertaining to a draft prospect, Leatherwood kicked from guard to tackle, and his stock has soared.
Logan Wilson, LB, Wyoming
Linebackers on the draft radar from the Mountain West are usually one of two things (and I mean no disrespect here, it's just how it's been) -- small, quick and super-productive, or NFL-sized with slower feet and decent production.
Leighton Vander Esch was the exception at nearly 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds with elite athleticism and a loaded statistical resume. While I'm not expecting Wilson to land in the first round like Vander Esch did, he could be another exception listed at 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds with smooth athleticism and plenty of tackling and coverage production.
After averaging 101 tackles, two picks, two sacks, nearly nine tackles for loss, and a little more than two pass breakups per year in his first three seasons with the Cowboys, Wilson returned to school for his redshirt senior campaign and instead of falling short of the lofty standards he set, the rangy linebacker has exceeded those as a cover man, which is vital for the modern-day linebacker. With a bowl game upcoming for Wyoming, Wilson has 99 tackles, four picks (one being a gimme off a tip) and seven pass breakups.
Showing he could maintain his high-level of production while consistently demonstrating comfort sinking in zone coverage -- and making plays on the ball -- will bode well for Wilson once he reaches the NFL level. The week at the Senior Bowl will be enormously important for him, but his play in Laramie this year has made him a draftable prospect who may not have to wait until the final stages of the draft to hear his name called.
Well, well, well... Entire list at the link below but these are the most interesting names for us... Antoine I have been saving I guess the word is out now.. he has great blood lines, some injury concerns... many Player Personal types like this name. Minn also has a decent edge guy...

SPECIAL::: THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF THE MISSING RECEIVER.... Lyn Bowden Junior has been held back because he was asked to MOVE TO QUARTERBACK to save his team... I just went through all of Walter football's names and Lyn Bowden Jr is not listed as a receiver I mean I'm 27 names in no Bowden Jr... a great mystery is about to resolve...
Kentucky assistant to NFL teams: Lynn Bowden will 'make your team better'
Kentucky’s star wide receiver Missing in Action!
Lynn Bowden Jr. last year was on the rise! A vital part of Mark Stoops squad last year. Bowden was used as the Wildcats number one receiving option, and their return specialist in 2018. During his breakout season, Bowden compiled a total of 67 catches for 745 receiving yards. Five of his receptions resulted in touchdowns. Up Up Up....
#1 Punt Returner-? 5 Attempts 2 to the house for TD's... But this year Kentucky’s starting quarterback Terry Wilson went down earlier in the 2019 college football season with a torn patellar tendon. This left knee injury ended his year after playing in just two games. Ouch... Swayer Smith served as the Wildcats new starting quarterback until he began to struggle for the team mid-year. This is what led to Lynn Bowden Jr. converting from a play-making wide receiver to an option threat quarterback.
Man. Talk about a team player... this killed his draft stock!! I mean he's no QB so he's not on any QB lists and he didn't play enough receiver he's not on the receivers list, this guy is in no man's land.. a certain kind of purgatory that he may need to be released from and a deep diving scout may find here a true late round steal!
Bowden finished his regular season(12 games) with 348 yards and one TD. Not so good... but the bigger story... Bowden played 4 games at QB. In four games with Bowden at quarterback, the wide receivers have caught 14 total passes.
So they made another switch. The problem is Bowden likely headed to the NFL draft after the season and the question becomes: has the Wildcat shift to the Bowden-lead offense severely stunted the receivers’ NFL draft position?

Keep these three names in mind. Alaric Jackson, Jedrick Willis Jr. & Alex Leatherwood.
Depending on how this draft unfolds Willis is bound to rocket up, Leatherwood already has made a big move up... that kind of leaves Alaric Jackson there 2nd round should Tyler Biadazz go in Rd 1.
How Bout That GR! ~si
PS: Tristian Wirfs has risen so much he would have to be a Round 1 pick for us. I was just doing a mock and he could go as high as 10, 11. !!! Huge riser. Without a trade back I have rd 2 slated for O line help. I think Willis will go Rd 1 and it will come down to Leatherwood vs Jackson.
On Wednesday afternoon, the 6-foot-6 325-pounder was named the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year. Wirfs only gave up two quarterback hits all season and was a much-improved run-blocker during his junior season. "Once he gets his hands on you, goodnight – he’ll drive a defensive end into the upper deck if they forget to blow the whistle," NFL Draft Analyst Thor Nostrum wrote...
I think these are my top 5 OTs at this point in time. I think we'd probably be happy with any of those guys but ya never know... but those are the guys that stand out to me personally. But ya know how the draft process goes... senior bowl always changes things etc. For now though, not necessarily in that order.>>>>
1. Tristan Wifs 2. Jedrick Wills 3. M Becton 4. Andrew Thomas 5. Alex Leatherwood
Just listened to pff with guest anlyst Dane Brugler of The Athletic. Dane Brugler is higher on OTs M Becton and Austin jackson of USC then others are. Brugler talks to lots of NFL insiders. WF also said M Becton will be higher on NFL boards then the media thinks....
Ya know I wouldn't put it past Dave to pick that guy. He'd give some spiel about the Kansas State model and the Houston Ducks model or something. He'd say "You can never have too many QBs". Can you just picture it?>>>>

whooly crap is ceedee lamb awesome. Are you guys watching the game? If you were going to invent the perfect WR, it may look very similar to ceedee lamb. That dude looks like he is going to absolutely light up the NFL.
C Creed Humphery is a DUDE. Big strong and he can MOVE. He may be the best IOL in the draft class period.
LB Kenneth Murray is just super. all over the field.
Fun game to watch.
Denzel Mims you playing today?
This is a fun game to watch!
Coach Matt rhule has his hands full. OKLA is loaded with talent. For rhule to have these guys in this game playing at a high level is super impressive.
LT for OKLA just got beat with speed around the outside and grabbed his guy around the neck for the hold. That is concerning .... In the NFL they will exploit a weakness....
Denzel mims has been completely shut down in the first half..... uh oh.. may have to dial it back on him f he can't hang with the big boys... who is covering him?
I've not seen Baylor put denzel mims in motion or scheme him open at all.
UH Oh. LB kenneth murray is hurt.. looks like a knee... dang it... why do these guys play in these games... just go to the NFL! you would think after what happned to jaylon smith a ew years back, these guys parents would stop them from playing these games....
Young 3rd string QB jacob Zeno making a name for himself!
I didn't see the game I fell asleep early after an unusually emotional viewing of the Lady Who Irons Naked at night. Yes she has taken down the blanket! We have made up. I think.
Oregon statement game for our next coach!! Ran across some interesting stuff on a Round 7 type guy--- Maybe six... some say undrafted... Safety Mddle Tenn St--- Jovante Moffett
How would you describe your skill set?
Moffett: I’m an aggressive tackler in the box. I play well in coverage. Our defense here at Middle Tennessee State, we play some zone, we also drop a lot of guys in coverage. I’m used to dropping back and having to cover. We’re multiple here. That’s football wise. Aside from the skill set, I’m pretty much the leader of this defense. I call the plays and make the checks. I have a high football I.Q.
Do you see yourself as a strong or free safety at the next level?
Moffett: I get that question a lot. I’d say I’m a free safety or a nickel corner actually. I have a lot of tackles to my name, and that’s why people often associate me with the strong safety position. I came in as a free safety originally. I switched over when a younger defensive back arrived here and we gave him the free safety job. I just ran away with the strong safety position after that. I feel like I can play both. It doesn’t matter.
