Scouting the Champs Sports Bowl

Scouting the Champs Sports Bowl

Tonight's bowl contest features a game which includes several potential first day picks in next April's draft including one possible top 32 choice. A lot of talent coming from the defensive secondary and offensive line at the Champs Sports Bowl.

Georgia Tech

James Butler/S/4Sr/22: Explosive run defending safety with a good head for the ball.  Can play over tight end but lacks overall cover skills and instinct. Late 4th round

Nate Curry/WR/5Sr/5: Undersized possession receiver with marginal upside for the next level. UDFA

P.J. Daniel/RB/4Jr/45: Nice sized ball carrier strong on the inside.  Undersized lacking both speed and elusiveness to be a feature runner at the next level but has potential as a change of pace back.  Early 4th round

Dennis Davis Jr./CB/4Sr/25: Athletic prospect with good size/speed numbers.  Still more athlete than football player to this point. UDFA

Eric Henderson/DE/4Jr/56: Explosive pass rusher consistently blowing up plays in the opponents backfield.  Quick and fast off the edge.  Adequate size for a right defensive end at the next level. Late 2nd

Reuben Houston/CB/4Jr/9: Decent athlete with solid cover techniques.  Good prospect for the future almost mentally to find his game. Late 3rd 

Dawan Landry/S/4Jr/20: Active safety constantly around the ball and mentally alert player.  Must improve his playing strength yet a good prospect for the next level.  Early 4th

Leon Robinson/G/5Sr/74: Quick lineman strong at the point of attack.  Marginal skills in space. UDFA

Andy Tidwell-Neal/G/4Sr/65: Overachieving collegiate blocker and limited athlete with minimal potential for the next level.  UDFA

Kyle Wallace/T/4Sr/77: Nasty run blocker who opens up the lanes for ball carriers.  Limited athlete uncomfortable in space.  Late 6th

Syracuse

Diamond Ferri/S/5Sr/22: Terrific athlete that has been used in the secondary and at running back.  Could play a variety of positions at the next level and a solid developmental prospect whose college career was slowed because of personal situations. Early 5th

Kellen Pruitt/OLB/3Jr/41: Outstanding athlete and explosive defender.  Potentially the next top linebacker to come from Syracuse. Mid 2nd

Walter Reyes/RB/5Sr/39: Productive collegiate ball carrier with outstanding running backs skills.  Times faster and he plays but projects well as a third down back in the NFL. Early 5th

Matt Tarullo/G/5Sr/75: Big bodied, strong lineman with athletic limitations. UDFA

Adam Terry/T/5Sr/78: Tall, athletic blocker that has done a terrific job the past three seasons protecting the blind side.  Fast-riser that could slide into the late part of April's first round. Late 1st

James Wyche/DE/3Jr/90: Natural athlete that flashes dominance on occasion. Early 4th
