The final full schedule weekend for the 2019 College Football season is now completed. One more weekend of Conference Championships and it’s on to Bowling for Dollars season.  Here are my watch thumbnails from this past weekend’s games. TREY ADAMS  #72  OT  Washington  6’7/315   Sr     A couple of years ago you might remember this mountain of a… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 13

The clock is indeed ticking towards midnight on the 2019 College Football season. And so let’s reflect back on Week 13 and review what my eyes saw last weekend in the realm of pro prospects.   BRANDON AIYUK   #2   WR   6’1/200   Arizona State   Sr     AIYUK has emerged from under the shadow of N’KEAL HARRY… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 12

Key conference and rivalry games abound as teams head for the home stretch of the 2019 college football season. Here are thumbnail looks at more 2020 Draft prospects. BEN BREDESON  #74  OG  MICHIGAN  6’5/320  SR   The Interior OL group looks a bit weak for the 2020 NFL Draft. BREDESON has the length of an OT, but not the… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 11

Some great college action with multiple teams falling from the ranks of the unbeaten, and the SEC game of the year being a slugfest. After struggling with injuries for the past two seasons, ANTOINE WINFIELD/SS/MINNESOTA has bounced back to his form as a true frosh in 2016. After checking with GBN details expert Larry Parker, it is certified… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 10, 2019

Due to a NCAA scheduling glitch, last weekend left us with almost half of the FBS top teams with a bye week. Yet even if the matchups are a bit lacking, there are always serious prospects in action, and I believe we have some under-the-radar types here for your consideration. It is pretty much undeniable that the biggest… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 9

Teams are headed toward the final third of the season and the cream is rising to the top of the bottle, unless the players are injured. Let’s look at a few prospects who are catching the eyes of talent evaluators. For the 4th time this season I have tried to study the work of GRANT DELPIT/S/LSU who may… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye October

I’ve been on the road vacationing for a few weeks, and accordingly, have found it difficult to watch enough college football games to complete this scouting segment. However, given the plethora of games that are televised I kept my scouting notebook handy and made notations while traveling around. One of the most impressive players that I have watched… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 4

ZACK BAUN #56 OB WISCONSIN 6’3/225 The BADGERS football program is known primarily for its OL and RB contributions to the NFL, but you’re not paying close attention if you haven’t noticed the infusion of LB prospects into the NFL from Madison’s beloved football program. 3 new LB’s from the BADGERS program dot 2019 NFL rosters. ANDREW VAN… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 3, 2019

A stroke of good luck (again) for Central Florida, and no Hurricane here. So with tv reception solid I did watch multiple games on Saturday. Herein, are my thumbnails on selected prospects who I saw in action. I guess we can expect to see Clemson just about every weekend and for the second straight week I watched them… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Bowl Edition 3.0

JOE LOWERY #65 OT OHIO 6’7/305 Way back before Christmas, Frank Solich and his Ohio Bobcats won another game with a 24-0 whitewashing of San Diego State in the Frisco Bowl. Now that Bill Snyder has retired, SOLICH is the senior coach in D-1 football. He plays old-fashioned offense where run first/pass second is the style. One of… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Bowl Edition 2.0

GARRETT BRADBURY #65 OC N.C. STATE 6’3/300 At the beginning of the 2018 college football season, I was of the opinion that OC was not going to be a particularly strong 2019 Draft position group. Two things have changed my mind since then. The first is the opinion of many personnel people, that a good number of other… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Bowl Edition 1.0

JEFF ALLISON #9 IB FRESNO STATE 6’0/242 JR The Bulldogs are currently enjoying a program resurgence under HC JEFF TEDFORD, who has now led his team to double digit win totals in both of his first two seasons in charge of the program. ALLISON, who is expected to announce his intention to enter the 2019 NFL Draft very… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 14

MYLES GASKIN #9 RB 5’10/190 WASHINGTON One has to be impressed with the resume’ of GASKIN as he prepares to leave the Huskies and move on to a pro career. 2018 was his 4th year with over 1,000 yards rushing. That has never been done before in Washington football history. He’s a sneaky runner who clearly has the… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 13

DRAVON ASKEW-HENRY #6 SS 6’0/202 WEST VIRGINIA ASKEW-HENRY plays the prestigious SPUR position in the WVU defense. It is basically a hybrid SS/LB role with a good amount of time lining up in-the-box. But it does require the player in that position to have coverage responsibility on a regular basis. DRAVON had big shoes to fill this season… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 12

Sad to say that multiple big time prospects have had their 2018 seasons ended by major injuries. A few may return by Bowl time, but then again others will never be 100% to even fully test out prior to the Draft itself. I have a growing list of players who I intended to thumbnail and failed to get… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 11

AUSTIN BRYANT #7 DE 6’5/265 CLEMSON BRYANT is the final piece in the work of art that is the Clemson DL, for me to thumbnail. I still think this is the finest front 4 that I have ever seen in college football during my 60 years of watching games. BRYANT is the long, lean edge protector opposite FERRELL.… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 10

Always a bit scary to me when I see double digits show up behind the word Week… on any of these football reports. Plus it gets a bit frustrating trying to scout the prospects when so many are out, or not playing at peak efficiency, because of injuries. And this is certainly one of those years. So, I… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 9

ANDRE DILLARD #60 OT 6’5/305 WASHINGTON STATE Once again Mad Scientist MIKE LEACH has his team achieving things that few of us projected from them last Summer. And without doubt, some of their success is indeed due to the creativity of LEACH and his staff, but let’s also acknowledge that they do find talented players and develop them… Read More »

WHO CAUGHT MY EYE Week 8

JOHNATHAN ABRAM #38 SS 6’0/210 MISSISSIPPI STATE The Bulldogs roster, during the DAN MULLEN era in Starkville, became a home for a steady stream of JC players from around MS and AL. ABRAM came to State from the JUCO ranks after one failed season at Georgia. In 2017, he started 7 games and recorded 71 tackles for State.… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 7

BEAU BENZSCHAWEL #66 OG 6’6/320 Wisconsin Yes, the Badgers laid an egg against Michigan, but much of the discredit for that goes on a way too conservative game plan from HC PAUL CHRYST, and a very bad performance from uneven QB ALEX HORNIBROOK, in this observer”s opinion. It’s hard for an O-Line to look its best when their… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 6

KRIS BOYD #2 CB 6’0/196 TEXAS The CB positions have been a big strength for the Longhorns most of this decade. The leader of the pack for them this season is BOYD. BOYD is not the glamour guy that HOLTON HILL was last year, or that DEVANTE DAVIS is turning into this season for the Longhorns. But he… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 5

JAKE BAILEY #14 P 6’2/202 STANFORD 2018 was a veritable bonanza year for Rookie kicking and punting prospects on NFL Training Camp rosters. And more than a few of them made the 53-man roster cut-downs. Any team with a big need going forward on their Special Teams better get lucky and/or risk a fairly early Pick for a… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 4

And so the chaos begins in earnest for the 2018 College Football season. ARMY takes OKLAHOMA into OT, in Norman, before the thin gray line breaks. STANFORD comes from well behind to beat the Ducks on the road. KELLY BRYANT loses his starting job at Clemson, and is leaving school. The biggest bad news is that top NFL… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 3

The Week 3 game schedule was a bit weak, as many teams prepped for their pending Conference schedules with cup-cake tune ups. Then again there were more than enough solid matchups to view, with pro prospect status in mind. So once again let me share with you some thumb-nail sketches of players Who Caught My Eye! SQALLY CANADA… Read More »

Who Caught My Eye Week 2

Once again, this year it sure feels like there are an inordinate number of player injuries, seriously affecting significant prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft. I had intended to thumbnail Oklahoma RB RODNEY ANDERSON for last week’s column, but Oklahoma was rolling roughshod over Florida Atlantic and he never saw the field in the second half with 100+-yards… Read More »
