Brad Smith... another rushing TD

That's why he's being considered as a possible running back right there.

Keep an eye out for Barrick Nealy in this one. He should look very good. I think Marcus McNeil will actually be in this game

How did Marshall get that wide open?... Oww, horrible coverage by some Iowa corner...

Betts is a guy some people like. Wow, way to direct traffic. Is he that fast, or was his pursuit that slow. Wow. Brandon Marshall, he is a guy to look at after all.

Wow so Brandon Marshall has been the best player at the Hula Bowl practices. That says a lot right there. Way to go Brandon. Doug Gabriel much?

Man Betts sure has an arm on him...

It was Betts buying time to the outside, when you do that a lot of DBs commit to making the tackle.

Marcus Demps should be someone to keep an eye on.. Same with the Texas Tech corner.. long name...

This talent pool is pretty watered down. There's really only a few names I'll keep an eye on. Seems I was wrong about McNeil being in it. I got bad info. Hopefully Nealy is playing this one. I want to see that boy some more. He's special IMO.

Its hard to get into watching this game. Not a great talent pool. If it weren't for Barrick Nealy, I wouldn't watch at all.

I find myself channel surfing as well.. Who is Nealy playing for East or West?

Heres Nealy...

Yeah Nealy has to learn to look off the safety. I still love him though.

It is obvious that Brandon Marshall is THE best player in this game. He is the true man among boys here.

Barrick definitely looks like a man among boys. He has to look off the safety, the safety just admitted he followed Barrick's eyes that way...and I have to agree. But Barrick has Elway kind of talent.

yeah brandon marshall is looking crazy... big physical and seems to have good hands...

How did he NOT get invited to the combine? Thats a travesty. He's an AWESOME prospect man.

Wes Hostetler has drawn my eye a bit. He's looked good.

I've tried to say on other forums that Marshall would get at least a look in the last 2 rounds and would play in the NFL. I don't know if any of you watched him with the Golden Knights, but he is very good. I haven't seen any of this game, but he can create distance very easily and slip past defenders. He can also make some WILD catches. He is one of the few reasons that UCF did so well this year. I believe that he was just moved from DB to WR this year.

At this point I am REALLY surprised that Marshall didnt catch my eye at the USF-UCF game.

You know, I gotta say...if Miami found a way to get hold of Brandon Marshall that right there would be a very good day. I would be loving life right there. He is SOOOOOOOO head and shoulders above every guy in this game...its ridiculous.

Josh Betts should get some credit for getting the ball to him though. He's really having a good game out there. I want to see Barrick get a lot more playing time, convert some first downs so that we get to see a few more throws. Brad Smith is a playmaker but not a QB. Larry Dibbles is actually pretty good. He should get a few looks.

You got that right!
That's why we shouldn't pass him up. He's big, quick, takes short strides for a big man and plus he's versatile - he played safety and led his team in TACKLES!!!

i think josh played very well yesterday. He is really that fast. He went to my high school and i remember watching him play, he would run easily for 15-20 yards when nothing was open and when he played basketball you could tell he was a pretty quick guy. He does have a pretty big arm too. Man, we actually had a good team w/ him.. 11-2 reginal runner up season.

I have been talking about this guy, and I am glad everyone is finally seeing how good this guy really is! He is freaking huge!!! And very quick for his size. He is a perfect red zone target...

What round projected? A second day guy?

God only knows right now. It's bound to be volatile...because he wasn't even on anyone's radar screen to the point where the Combine didn't even bother inviting him. They'll invite him now you can be sure. But, scouts at the Hula Bowl were unanimous in naming him the best player during all of the Hula Bowl practices, and it completely showed during the game itself.

I was talking about him a month ago and everyone thought I was crazy.They were telling me how much Betts sucks but I alwyas did like the fact that he could move plus a good arm.He could be a good pick on day 2 imo.The kid from UCF could go in round 3 or 4.

Ozzy rules!! :rockon: :guitar:

Brett Elliott from Linfield threw the only TD....if you compare him to the other named QB's...he carried himself well.

Compared to some other named QBs, yes he showed pretty well. I wouldn't rate him above Josh Betts or Barrick Nealy but he showed up pretty well...still not draftable IMO. He'll be an undrafted free agent I think.
