Now, here is my Week #4 set of “the 1 player that stuck out to me in a game I watched that I wasn’t very aware of”. Therefore, just assume I think Adrian Peterson, Vince Young, and Reggie Bush are good. These are dudes that have stuck out to me in a given game, and maybe on draft day they will be solid NFL players or maybe they won’t be, but they sure caught my football eye.
LSU Skylar Green, SR, WR/KR #5 vs. Tenn. Speed Burner coming back from Injury. Like the QB, too, but I figure you are up to speed on his fine work.
Va Tech Jeff King, SR, TE #90 vs. Ga Tech. Very solid at everything. Catches, blocks, blocks kick. Once again, I assume you are familiar with his QB, too.
Ohio State Troy Smith, JR, QB #10 vs. Iowa…It appears it is all Smith at QB, Zwick is on the bench in Columbus…
Michigan Mario Manningham, FR, WR #86 vs. Wisconsin. Very promising WR from a school that seldom produces a great NFL WR.
Previous players on the list:
Florida DeShawn Wynn, Jr. RB, #21 vs. Tennessee. What a stutter-step for a 230 pound back!
UCLA Justin London, Sr. LB, #9, vs. OU. Appears to be quite the speed LB, who hits and covers ground.
Virginia Marques Hagans, SR. QB , #18, vs. Syracuse – (I realize he doesn’t project well to the NFL, but he is still very good).
Wisconsin Brian Calhoun, Jr. RB , #2, vs. North Carolina – (What do you know, Wisconsin has a RB).
Texas Jamaal Charles, FR. RB , #25, vs, Ohio State – (I knew he was good, but wow).
Ohio State Anthony Schlegel, SR, LB , #51, vs, Texas – (OSU LB’s Hawk and Carpenter are great, too; Schlegel is a Dallas guy).
Bowling Green Omar Jacobs, Jr. QB , #4, vs. Wisconsin
Miami Ben Olsen, SO, TE , #82, vs. Florida State
Clemson James Davis, RB, Fr , #1, vs. Texas A&M
VT Darryl Tapp, DE, SR , #55, vs. NC State
There, I don’t know if anyone likes this growing list, but at least it serves as my college football notebook to myself…
