Drew Sanders, Linebacker, Arkansas (vs Alabama, October 1, 3:30 p.m.)

Drew Sanders found himself buried in the Alabama depth chart, which led to his move to Arkansas before the 2022 season. That decision paid off. Sanders is a leader in the Arkansas defense, currently having a team-high 5.5 sacks to go with 31 tackles, two defensive passes, and two making passes. His range is extraordinarily large and allows him to cover from sideline to sideline or track running backs. When he is in a position to interfere, he does so with a tremendous amount of physical fitness, leaving no room for the ball carrier to break the interference. Sanders has flashed so far and still has plenty of upsides to unlock. This upside should be abundantly clear as he will be a crucial player in helping Arkansas overturn his former team, Alabama.

Davis Breen, quarterback, Tulsa (v. Cincinnati, October 1, 7:00 p.m.)

Davis Breen is having an exciting season with Tulsa and is currently flinging for 1,318 yards, 12 touchdowns and just one interception. He ranks fourth in yards and seventh in assists across the entirety of FBS. After a game against the Ole Miss that saw him struggle only to complete 54% of his attempts for 113 yards and touchdowns, he gets a rebound game against a strong Cincinnati High. The Bearcats only allow 183 yards passes per game, and that’s really a test for Brin to show whether his Ole Miss game was luck or if he simply couldn’t handle a good defensive appearance. Breen is rising quickly in the boards, and a dominant performance against Cincinnati will make him climb even more. (Tristin Cohn)

Blake Corum, running back, Michigan (vs Iowa, October 1, 12:00 p.m.)

The Michigan Wolverines narrowly defeated the Maryland Terrapin last week and are now traveling to face the Iowa Hawks in what could be another trap game. They’ll need their star running back Blake Corum to battle one of the best defenses in college football. This isn’t an easy task, as Iowa allowed less dash yards per game nationwide. The Hawkeyes’ dominant defense is led by All-American linebacker Jack Campbell. Corum has already scrambled to get nine leading touchdowns by FBS. He’s a compact runner at 5’8 and 210 pounds, but he has a game-breaking blast. His long speed and superior agility allow him to run home. His running style and build are very reminiscent of Aaron Jones in the NFL. Corum has yet to establish himself as a pass blocker in order to stand out in the loaded running back category. This week presents an opportunity to perform against the highest defense with many scouts watching. (Andrew Little)

Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech (versus Kansas State, October 1, 12:00 p.m.)

Terry Wilson is a superior player of enormous size. At 6’6, 257 pounds, he has a knack for playing multiple positions on the defensive line. Against running, he can use his strength and length to effectively adjust the edge. It can line up indoors and be productive against running, too. It is strong and quick to handle the ball, and usually produces turbulence and penetration. As a rusher, he has three sacks per season, including two against the top 25 of NC State. This is an area for Wilson’s improvement. He does not have a wide range of movements yet. With good NFL training, Wilson can turn out to be a good player in both running defense and fast passing. he is He gets a good test this week against Kansas State and that rushing attack with Deus Vaughn and Adrian Martinez.

Miles Murphy, Edge, Clemson (opposite No. 10 North Carolina, October 1, 7:30 p.m.)

Big time players make themselves known in big time games. In order to pick out the top 10 players, Miles Murphy and the No. 5 Clemson Tigers, this week’s game against North Carolina State isn’t just a match between two of ACC’s top team. She is the crucial resume builder in Clemson’s quest to get into the college football game. Murphy is the best EDGE in this category Will Anderson in my eyes has not been called. At 6’4 and 275 pounds, Murphy has the perfect build for a 4-3 defensive end and has wreaked havoc on the opposing offensive lines so far in his career. With its build and slick repertoire that’s far more refined than elite college prospects, I see this game as an opportunity for Murphy to make a statement and cement his place near the top of the draft boards.
