Jo’Quavious Marks RB - MIssissippi St. - can he keep the great start going against a much better opponent. He’s an ideal RB 3 target for us in that he’s a day 3 guy that could both fill the Gibbs or the Monty role should either be hit with an injury.
Maason Smith - missed game 1 and not much production against the cupcake. If the production meets the talent he IMO can be the first defender drafted next April.
KSU @ Mizzou
Cooper Beebe - he and Duke’s Graham Barton fit us to a T in that they are OTs that could play there in a pinch but are likely to be absolute stud Guards at the next level. Not sure if we want to go OL as high as it likely takes to get Beebe (and probably Barton as well)
South Carolina @ Georgia
Xavier Leggett - great profile for an X. Finally is seeing production that lines up with the athletic talent. Big and fast, with a good game against Georgia he could see himself vaulted into the high end X WR conversation with guys Ike Adonai Mitchell and Keon
KSU @ Mizzou
Arian Smith - Carson Beck and he started to get their bearings last week. Freaky fast. 10.3 and HS and nearly broke 10 seconds in an SEC meat. Seems to have decent enough hands. Probably more of a Z WR so he may be Jamo redundant but I remain a big fan as I’m a sucker for that kind of speed.
I wouldn’t hate it if we considered a T with G versatility AND a C with G versatility. Especially if we let Jonah go. The former can be our swing tackle and fight for the G spot in training camp, the latter can fight for the G spot in training camp and backup Ragnow.
Sorsdal can fight for the guard spot in training camp as well.
Because having Big V’s replacement in-house is forward-thinking, and having someone who can step in for Frank if something goes wrong with his foot is good planning, and like Big V, Glasgow doesn’t have a ton of years left either.
Yes speed always valued the highest. Here’s where I have a problem with it. When it over inflates someone’s value as a player. It’s pretty common for average players to be over valued due to their speed. Actually far too common in football.
If you’re fast & good at football I want you. If you’re fast & average at football I am passing all day to take the other guy who isn’t “fast” but good at football.
FYI: non of my comments are directly related to A Smith as I haven’t watched him as a prospect yet
