Bailey Zappe, QB, Western Kentucky – We have showcased this kid a lot, because he is a true passer. He may have one of the quickest releases in college football. He was a D2 kid that transferred up and the threw for 523 yards passing this past week and 5 touchdowns. He led his team down the field to beat UTSA but could not get it done. He is a very amazing player with great skills.
Isaiah Likely, TE, Coastal Carolina – One of the top tight ends in the country. He is a big kid with great hands. Likely racked up 4 touchdowns this past week against Arkansas State and had 232 yards on 8 receptions. Likely is going to be a draft pick, and he definitely was a Hula Bowl Diamond Performance in week 6. Likely is the NCAA leader in touchdowns with 8.
Calvin Austin III, WR, Memphis – I love this kids game. There is something about him that makes him special. He flashes every time he touches the ball. He hauled in 13 passes for 200 yards and scored one touchdown in the loss against Tulsa. He is going to be a star at the next level. Calvin Austin is second in the NCAA in receiving touchdowns with 8.
Tyler Badie, RB, Missouri – The senior running back had a great game this week against North Texas. Badie rumbled for 208 yards and two touchdowns on just 17 carries. He has nice burst and looked like a superstar this week. Badie has 12 touchdowns this year, 8 rushing and 4 receiving.
Tyquan Thornton, WR, Baylor – The Baylor wide out went bananas this week. He finished the game against West Virginia with 8 receptions for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns. He looked great and has definitely rose on our boards!
Jaylan Foster, S, South Carolina – Week in and Week out this kid is performing. This kid just received his scholarship at South Carolina. He is a former small school kid from Gardner Webb who is transitioning into on of the best special team players in the country and a playmaking safety for the Gamecocks. Foster currently leads the NCAA with 4 interceptions.
Coby Bryant, CB, Cincinnati – The Other Coby Bryant did a great job this past week. He had a tackle for loss, 6 tackles and 1 pick. He is one of the top nickel cornerbacks in this draft. I think his stock is definitely on the rise.
Tyler Johnson, DL, Arizona State – Tyler Johnson had a great game this week. He looked great and finished the game with 3.5 tackles for loss including 2 sacks with just 6 tackles. He looked great.
Matt Araiza, P/K, San Diego State – This kid is the best punter in the country, but he is just a junior, so I had to showcase him. He is having a monster year punting. He is averaging 54.1 yards per punt. The only punter close to him is Western Kentucky Punter John Haggerty III who has just 8 punts in four games. Araiza is a special player with a monster leg.
CJ Brewer, DT, Coastal Carolina – The 6’2, 290 pound defensive tackle from Coastal had a great game against Arkansas State. He finished with 1 sack and 1 interception in the huge win. This year he has 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks to go with his 1 interception at the DT position. That is impressive.
