2018 Draft Stock Up

Florida Gator DT Taven Bryan: Bryan was amazing against Texas A&M. He looked like a top 15-20 pick, using speed to fire by offensive lineman and his power to shed blocks. In the third quarter, Bryan killed a series for the Aggies. Texas A&M tackled him around the neck to prevent a sack, and that drew a holding penalty that wiped out a 40-yard gain. Bryan blew up the next rushing play. Then, he beat a double team from the guard and tackle, firing between them and using strength to achieve the third-down sack. Shortly later, Bryan added another sack on a third-and-goal to force a field goal. Against Texas A&M, he had seven tackles with 1.5 sacks. Bryan has 20 tackles with four tackles for a loss and three sacks this season. The announcers that game were comparing Bryan with the likes of JJ Watt, But one director of scouting has said he reminds him of Bronce DE Derek Wolfe. ( Who has had a successful career. Bryan can play both DE and DT. But is probably better suite as the five technique.

D.J Clark WR, LSU Tigers: LSU pulled off a huge comeback against Auburn, during which Chark was the star producer. It didn’t start well for Chark as he had a painful mistake. In the first quarter, Auburn cornerback Carlton Davis released Chark running deep down the field, which let Chark get open for a long reception. Davis got lucky that his safety forced a fumble that Davis recovered. After that play, Chark overwhelmed Auburn, starting with Chark spinning after the catch to get down the sideline for 39 yards. Late in the third quarter, Chark made a nice catch downfield for about 20 yards, working back to the ball and securing a leaping grab. In the fourth quarter, Chark came up with a huge play as he took a punt return 75 yards for a touchdown to cut Auburn’s lead to 23-21. Shortly later, Chark came up with a huge reception, getting late separation and having the ball fall into him, for a gain of about 40 yards. Chark totaled five receptions for 150 yards versus Auburn. Overall, this tape will help Chark as he showed the speed to separate and make big plays. He also ran some nice routes with impressive ability to get late separation to make receptions

 

Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson: Clemson has a defensive line that is comprised of future first-round picks, and some sources think that Ferrell creates some of the big plays for the other Tigers defensive linemen. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder has superb speed with athleticism and the ability bend around the corner. On the season, Ferrell has 30 tackles with 7.5 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, one pass batted and one forced fumble. Fellow defensive end Austin Bryant is playing himself into being an early-rounder this year, but Ferrell has done well cleaning up a lot of scrambling quarterbacks running away from Bryant

Maurice Hurst DE Michigan: Hurst had a phenomenal game against Michigan State, dominating at the point of attack. All night, he caused major disruption using a tremendous get-off to fire into the backfield. Hurst wrecked plays from start to finish and led the way for Michigan’s defense to hold the Spartans to 14 points despite the Wolverines’ offense turning the ball over five times. Hurst destroyed a fourth-and-2 play in the fourth quarter to get the ball back for his offense. He showed superb first-step quickness, constantly firing his gap and getting into the backfield. Hurst was so fast off the snap that he was breaking into the backfield while offensive linemen were still getting out of their stances. Against the Spartans, Hurst totaled eight tackles with 2.5 for a loss. This season, he has 29 tackles, 6 for loss, .5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
