A very intriguing group.
John Brannon III Western Carolina-Long arms, scouts did double takes, Grant Ibeh LIU Post-Long arms, Mamadou Mbye Rhode Island, Wow! body at weigh in. Wingspan of a condor. Can play both safety positions. Scouts did double takes when these players were in just compression shorts.
Dream Bowl Patriots-
Kilton Anderson-William and Mary-Didn’t force any throws. Made good decisions and showed a decent arm.
Yeedee Thaenrat Towson-An easy favorite scouts.
James Hill-Wayne State-taller back, Nifty runner, raised some eyebrows.
Jesse Bray Urbana/Turned a good workout, wow body at weigh in.
Joey Fields Marshall-Won 50-50 balls despite size, showed no signs of past injury. Above avg speed and quickness. Looked at by almost all scouts.
Christian Saulsberry West Alabama-Ran 4.48 at the combine. Very elusive. Caught everything. No fear
Brandon Ruffin St Francis (ILL)-possession WR. Ran 4.6, won 50-50 balls, had scouts asking questions. Quietly performed well.
An amazing group
Qua Boyd West Alabama-An obvious pick. Made everything look easy.
David Meza Carroll College (WI)-the “darling” of the Dream Bowl so far. A total unknown before this weekend. Not ranked anywhere. Has an NFL body 6’3 240, caught everything. Scouts started checking their records after watching him practice. Started a little slow maybe because he wasn’t used to the spotlight and being in front of NFL scouts. After reassurance from a scout, and told not to “press or worry”. Everything fell into place and David dominated. Fearless and gritty. TOTALLY STOOD OUT.
DJ Cornish-Shepherd-Met with scouts.
This group was ok, just looked steady.
Jason Maduafokwa-East Tennessee State-Wow! Body at weigh in. Scouts did double takes.
Clayton Glasco-Indiana State-Huge standout on defense. SCOUTS ARE EXTREMELY HIGH ON THIS KID!!!!
Malik Preston-S. Arkansas-A bully on defense and very instinctive. Vocal and a leader.
CB-Ryan Holmes Avila/Long arms, played well against higher competition. Scouts interviewed.
Deijon Lynch SE Louisiana-Ran very well at the combine. Very feisty. Got looks from scouts.
Darius Joseph-Missouri State-A player scouts wanted to see before practice even started.
Daniel Jones-Richmond-Looked dominant at times during team scrimmage. Very active, instinctual, and physical. Scouts interviewed.
