College Week 2 Standouts

RB Rashaad Penny, San Diego St

The Sun Devils didn't offer up much resistance on Penny's two longest plays of the day but he still displayed elite burst and breakaway speed. Penny's got a smooth downhill, linear style but looks to have just enough lateral quickness and strength to make him an especially dangerous playmaker. He devastated Arizona St with 353 total yards and 3 TDs; 1 each, running, receiving and returning.

QB Shane Morris, Central Michigan

Morris has a less than ideal 3 quartersy delivery but it comes out fast, accurate and with velocity. It actually reminds me a little of Kurt Warner's delivery. It's solid enough to send a blind pass right on target around a Kansas defender clobbering him last Saturday. He carved up the Jayhawks for 467 and 5TDs and 32yds rushing. He looks like a clearly superior prospect to Cooper Rush.

QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

Mayfield is not the easiest eval for me. He's kind of like a bigger armed Colt McCoy. The intangible Baker's got that's truly special is his ability to be accurate and poised while he's improvising. That can't be taught. He threw up 386 on OSU on 77.1% and 3 TDs. He appears like he's a passionate, competitive, captivating guy, but then that Reno 911 video keeps playing in the back of my head. Fortunately, vids like this one switch it up.

LB Roquan Smith, Georgia

Smith has a great motor and ideal speed. When he anticipates it's scary. He covered a ridiculous amount of ground last Saturday, making plays behind the line, in coverage and out to the boundaries.

CB Darius Phillips, Western Michigan

Phillips was all over the ball and did his best to keep the Broncos in the game. He's more quick than fast and shadows brilliantly; here making a tough play on a quick inside slant. Dangerous ball skills and return ability on deck as well.

OLB Davin Bellamy, Georgia

The Georgia defense turned up against Notre Dame and Bellamy knocked heralded OT McGlinchey down a few pegs. He put up a complete game, holding the edge here and here vs the run as well as showing his quickness around the edge.
