We dive into the previous week of the College Football season to give you some names of players making the heads of NFL scouts turn. This is for the NFL Draft enthusiasts along with the Dynasty team builders who are looking to take the best talent from the college ranks. What a weekend of kickoff college football we had this past weekend. Let’s Dive in!
Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA (491 passing yards, 4 TD’s)
A game where UCLA was down 34 points in the 3rd Quarter, Josh Rosen decided to turn it on. The UCLA line finally decided to protect him consistently and he was able to make Texas A&M pay. Rosen showed the clutch factor that NFL scouts crave, now you want to see him cut down on some of the almost interceptions he throws into tight coverages to lead them into victory. Those type of windows aren’t there in the NFL.
Ronald Jones II, RB, USC (159 rushing yards, 3 TD’s)
USC had its hands full with Western Michigan over the weekend. Everyone assumed that Sam Darnold would just throw all over them, but he struggled to get the offense going. Ronald Jones stepped up and created offense when they needed it most during this hard fought first game of the season. He showed ability to be an every down back to lean on for the offense.
Simmie Cobbs Jr., WR, Indiana (11 receptions, 134 yards, 1 TD)
Against a talented Ohio State defense with 4 to 5 star talents, he dominated 1-on-1 balls thrown his way. He really knows how to box out corners and make plays on the ball. He has the talent to possibly go late 1st, but injuries have kept him off the field to show his great potential. If he can continue these type of performances, he will be in the discussion as one of the Top wide receivers in this class.
Adam Breneman, TE, UMass (9 receptions, 179 yards)
A smaller school TE that will make NFL scouts drool this season when he enters the NFL Draft. He has a long frame with his 6’5″ stature that will make him a great red zone target and slot/TE hybrid. He dominated the game and Hawaii couldn’t match up with him. He may be the TE in the class that has the highest upside.
