While this game will feature an abundance of talent at every position, the playmakers on both defenses are particularly elite.
Bobby Jones, LB, NIU — Jones is also undersized at 5-10, 220, but capped his senior season with 10 tackles, 1 1/2 for loss, and a sack to give him 107 tackles, 12 1/2 for loss, and five sacks for the year. He’s had a productive career at NIU, but his limited athleticism and lack of ideal size might make it hard for NFL Basketball Jerseys Custom teams to take notice.
Jordan Lasley, WR, UCLA — One has to wonder if Lasley’s future is tied to Rosen’s decision. If the 6-1, 210-pound junior played in his final game on Tuesday, he went out with a bang. Lasley caught eight passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in the 35-17 loss to Kansas State. He has excellent speed, but has off-field issues with a littany of discipline problems. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct while on the sideline of Tuesday’s game. Lasley had an excellent junior season with 69 catches for 1,264 yards and nine touchdowns but is likely a third-day pick because of the non-football baggage he carries.
He’d have to take the mules to the well to go get water maybe once a week, Brees added. You basically had to hunt, kill, and grow whatever you ate. He rode a horse to school. So when people have this impression of what Texas is and what it is like, that was my grandpa. He rode a horse to school.

They said, ‘You ten have qualified to have the opportunity to be a Marine and go serve your country.’
Felton Davis III, WR, Michigan State — Washington State has a better defense than a lot of people realize, but they were unable to deal with Davis. The 6-4, 195-pound wide receiver caught four passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Spartans’ 42-17 win over the Cougars in the Holiday Bowl.
Ricky Walker, DT, Virginia Tech — Tremaine Edmunds gets all the pub for the Hokies, but Walker was the one in the backfield all game long for Virginia Tech. Walker finished with four tackles, two of which went for loss and one sack. At 6-2, 282-pounds Walker is undersized for a defensive tackle, but he is only a junior and could go back to school to both put on weight and use another year for development.
