Medal of Honor standouts

By | February 10, 2015

I must apologize for the delay in getting this game report out to you, but with the rapid fire 3 straight weeks of All-Star games in January, I plain and simply got swamped with travel and learning new rosters. I have now watched the replay of the Medal of Honor Game 3 times. And here is my All-Star Game star team from that event.

QB #11 RYAN WILLIAMS/MIAMI/6’6/222

WR #16 ISAAC BLAKENEY/DUKE/6’6/225
TE #80 CJ UZOMAH/AUBURN/6’5/264

LB #52 NORKEITHUS OTIS/UNC/6’1/235
CB #7 WILL BROWN/MISSOURI S&T/6’1/190
CB #22 De’VANTE BAUSBY/PITTSBURG STATE/6’2/180
S #31 QUINN BACKUS/COASTAL CAROLINA/5’10/215
S #38 JERMAINE WHITEHEAD/AUBURN/5’11/195
ST #5 TERRY JOHNSON/FLORIDA A&M/6’0/183

The number of players from this game who may be drafted should certainly be in single digits. But by the same token, I felt I saw a two dozen guys flash enough to end up as URFA and on a Training Camp roster this Summer.

Just as a side story because the COMBINE in Indy is the next major Draft related event of the off-season. There were 3 players from this game who are on the current Combine invitee list: ANGELO BLACKSON/DT/AUBURN; JJ NELSON/WR/RS/UAB; JERMAINE WHITEHEAD/S/AUBURN.

After the taped re-watches, I came away more impressed than after my initial TV watch of the game live. This game appears to be gaining a bit of momentum. IF it returns for 2016 I intend to give it strong consideration as a “go-to event” depending upon how media friendly they are.
