1) Kamren Kinchens | 5'11 | 202 | SAF | Miami

10/7 - Georgia Tech - Kinchens had a solid game overall. While he was banged up a bit and technically blew coverage on the last play of the game, he generally played the ball well vs. the run and pass.

10/21 - Clemson - Had a very solid game, flashed a number of time in coverage and as aa downhill striker. His play speed really stood out, as did the ground he covered. He was in on 6 tackles. 

2) Tyler Nubine | 6'2 | 210 | SAF | Minnesota

8/31 - Nebraska - Nubine had a solid game overall, with his best play coming late in the 4th to seal their victory with an INT. He notched another one prior on an overthrown ball. While he shined when the ball was in front of him, he didn't fair nearly as well when he had to cover routes over the top or across the field. He also wasn't very fast in coming up for tackle support. 

10/7 - Michigan - He paced his team with 7 tackles (6 solo). He was quick to recognize plays and come up in support. He played his back end responsibilities well, with Michigan getting most of its yards underneath and at intermediate levels. 

3) Javon Bullard | 5'11 | 195 | SAF | Georgia

9/16 - South Carolina - DNP

10/14 - Vanderbilt - Bullard's play jumped out at me. He was strong as a tackler and showed well in coverage support. He kept the ball in front of him and shut things down quickly, often functioning like a CB.

4) Calen Bullock | 6'3 | 190 | SAF | USC

10/14 - Notre Dame - Bullock had a decent game. He played over the top well for his half, kept the ball in front of him. He came up well in tackle support, notched 6 on the day. 

 

5) Cole Bishop | 6'2 | 206 | SAF | Utah

8/31 - Florida - Bishop had a very good game, pacing his team with 11 tackles, 9 of which were solo. He showed off good range and read plays well. He came downhill with resolute speed to close in on the ball in both pass defense and as a tackler. 

6) Beau Brade | 6'1 | 210 | SAF | Maryland

7) Tykee Smith | 5'10 | 200 | SAF | Georgia

9/16 - South Carolina - Showed some good play in coverage, played with ball awareness and good tackling. 

10/14 - Vanderbilt - Outside of one play where Smith missed his assignment that led to a score, his play was very sound if not good. He notched an INT and was active with 5 tackles.

8) Jaden Hicks | 6'3 | 209 | SAF | Washington State

9/9 - Wisconsin - Hicks had a nice game, showing he could roam the field well and step up as a tackler. 

9) James Williams | 6'4 | 225 | SAF/LB | Miami

10/7 - Georgia Tech - Had a strong game, was quick to the ball, showed good in coverage, came away with an INT. He moved well given his size.

10/21 - Clemson - Had a very solid game. He was dependable in coverage, and showed his chops with 7 tackles. He played with range, was around the ball often.

10) Jahdae Barron | 5'11 | 192 | SAF | Texas

11) Thomas Harper | 6'0 | 190 | SAF | Notre Dame

12) Malik Mustapha | 5'11 | 207 | SAF | Wake Forest

13) Kenny Logan | 6'0 | 210 | SAF | Kansas

9/8 - Illinois - Logan paced his team with 8 tackles, was all over the filed tonight. He kept plays in front of him while showing off very good range. 

14) Kitan Oladapo | 6'1 | 217 | SAF | Oregon State

15) Jaylon Carlies | 6'2 | 219 | SAF | Missouri

9/16 - Kansas State - Carlies looked the part today. He kept plays in front of him and showed good closing speed in coverage and as a downhill tackler. 

10/7 - LSU - Had a bad game, was a liability few times. He was out of position and didn't tackle well. While he had a couple good plays, he didn't play up to his ability. 

10/14 - Kentucky - Had a solid game. Kentucky didn't show much in the passing game, and Carlies was one factor in that regard. He came up well in tackle support, was in on 5 stops. 

16) Josh Proctor | 6'2 | 205 | SAF | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Great game,  read plays very well and was dependable in pass and run coverage. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Was off in coverage on a couple plays, but showed well as a tackler, had 7 stops. 

10/21 - Penn State - Proctor flashed aa few times, and was another reason Penn State couldn't move the ball through the air. He had 4 tackles, 2 PBUs.
