1. Alshon Jeffrey. Very physical player with a lot of upside, but needs serious refinement in his core receiver skills. Probably the second or third best receiver in the SEC, behind Green and possibly Childs.
2. DeAndre Brown. Where is the physicality? At 6’6″ 240 pounds, and with his speed you should dominate at the collegiate level. Brown was covered extremely well by various S.C. schemes, but still…elite prospects shine through, and he didn’t. I went back and re-watched the game tape this morning…it wasn’t like he wasn’t getting the looks, he was just simply locked down.
3. Stephen Gilmore. Wow. What a job he did last night, you can bet NFL teams moved him up their watch lists after last night’s performance.
4. Greg Salas. Not the fastest guy out there, but definitely a natural receiver. Roster spot guy at the next level.
5. Terrell Pryor. That much ballyhooed improvement seemed to be on display last night. He still has that slightly awkward throwing motion, and I want to see him play against a team with some semblance of a defense, but for the first time in his career (including the Rose Bowl) he looked like a quarterback who happens to be an athlete, and not the other way around.
6. Jacory Harris. Passes looked accurate enough, I’m just concerned about that ball velocity. If he doesn’t develop more zip on his passes, he won’t be playing at the next level.
7. Leonard Hankerson. Flying a bit under the radar, Hankerson’s game should help push him into a lot of top ten receiver lists. Six catches, 114 yards, two TDs..at the half!
8. Austin Davis. It wasn’t his fault his receivers couldn’t get open last night. The kid runs through his progressions faster than any quarterback I can remember. Arm isn’t elite caliber, and he lacks height, but he will probably make a roster at the next level.
