    Actually got to stay up late and watch some games on Saturday. I was really impressed with some of the skill players on South Florida. This team has some NFL caliber talent.

    Players that caught by eye by Team
    South Florida
    Jenkins (CB) - Moves well for a bigger corner
    Williams (CB)
    Moffitt (LB) - very stout at the point of attack, has ILB potential
    Jackson & Johnson (WR) - I can't keep them straight, one of them made the catch of the year, a one handed gem

    Auburn
    Groves (OLB/DE) - he may be one dimensional, but what a dimension. he can really get to the QB, future start (see Ware, Merriman, Phillips, etc.)
    Brock - SS - the kid can really hit

    Texas A&M
    Lane - (FB) - he is a monster, man among boys in short yardage situations

    Auburn should be 0-2, Kansas State shot themselves in the foot several times and allowed Auburn a late 4th quarter chance to take the lead...somewhat like the Pats/Classy-dudes in the playoffs. I recorded the South Florida game, I'll keep an eye out for your candidates, though I did note Groves against K-State, I need to see more of him to get an idea how well he'd handle playing in space.

    Watch for the catch, it is a gem. I believe it is in the first quarter.

    Also it is a long long long game, I went to bed before the OT.

    Player to scratch off your list
    - the kicker from South Florida, I think he was 2 for 6 including a 22 yard miss
    - he missed one so far to the left (right side of tv screen) that it left the picture, it may have ended out of bounds

    South Florida simply outcoached Auburn Saturday. Tuberville should start feeling some heat down on the plains.

    The two corners for South Florida looked really good in coverage. I don't remember seeing them as willing run supporters however.

    Central and South Florida are building solid programs. It will be interesting to see how far they can take it.

    Groves as an OLB for us would only work if he dedictes himself more to the run. The pass rush skills are evident, but he needs to work more on his run defense. And pass coverage would be a nightmare for him.

    This is true for all DE/OLB projects but it all starts with an ability to get the QB, you can teach everything else.

    The USF player I'm curious about is the tight end, #9, forget the name.

    He is 6'3", 230. A bit small for NFL TE, but he is a converted WR.

    He was converted because he blocked so well. Before I got hip to the size difference, I swore he looked like Daniel Graham at CU and the Pats.

    He made an amazing catch today that caught my eye; it was his first of the season. To me, that equates immeasureably to under the radar at this point.

    6'3", 230. WR converted to TE because of blocking ability. Recruited, and signed, originally by UMiami.

    The two TE's for Mizzu look pretty impressive. I'm not sure how fast they are, but appear to be decent receivers and blockers.

    Moffit had a monster game against West Virginia last night. Lets keep our eye on him, it looks like he is big enough to play inside in the Pats 3-4 and has good instincts.
