2013 NFL Draft: Week 11 College Football Impact Performances
Bacarri Rambo GEORGIA (S) 6’0 218- Rambo came up with a pick and forced fumble to help contribute to a shutout win against rival
Montee Ball WISCONSIN
(RB) 5’11 212- Ball’s stock has
fallen quite a bit without the Heisman caliber numbers of last year but it
probably better reflects his true value. He posted 198 yards on 27 carries (7.3
yards/carry) and 3 TD as the Badgers destroyed
Zac Dysert Miami OH (QB) 6’4 229- Dysert isn’t a household name just yet but hard-core draft nerds having been keeping an eye on him this season. He has good height, bulk and arm strength with a fluid, compact release. Against
Jordan Matthews VANDERBILT (WR) 6’3 208- Matthews had a great start to the season with 147 receiving yards against a heralded South Carolina defense and is not unlike the entire Vanderbilt program: underrated, talented an rising. Matthews has a lanky 6’3 frame and solid hands that were on display in his 9 catch, 140 yard, 1 TD (15.6 per catch) performance on Saturday.
EJ Manuel FSU (QB) 6’5 240- Manuel caught the eye of evaluators last year with his physically imposing, highly chiseled 6’5 frame and flashes of brilliance, but is now backing up that athletic potential with some actual production. In a tight game versus Virginia Tech Manuel threw for 326 yards with only 1 INT and the winning touchdown pass (3 total) while outshining fellow 2013 NFL draft eligible dual-threat quarterback Logan Thomas. Manuel was rated lower than the similarly gifted Thomas on almost all draft boards, including mine, but is looking like the more polished passer so far this year.
Seth Doege TEXAS TECH (QB) 6’1 197- Doege generated limited interest from pro scouts and draftniks alike before the season, reaching no higher than the 14th or 15th best eligible quarterback and not even mentioned on some lists, but he has come on like gangbusters of late. A couple of weeks ago he upstaged Heisman front-running Geno Smith and continued his current tear on Saturday with a deadly accurate 45/59 completion rate for 476 yards, 2 TD and 1 INT. He lacks ideal height and exceptional athletic tools, but with performances like that he will work his way into the mix.
Alec Lemon SYRACUSE
(WR) 6’2 202- Lemon has been a
solid producer for the
