the Washington Huskies face off against the perennial BCS contending Boise State roster. It what could be one of the better coaching and schematic match-ups of the early bowl seasons.
While Washington only has one senior (and no expected-to-declare juniors) prospect in Desmond Trufant, Boise State features three solid, fringe draftable senior prospects to consider this NFL Draft season and to watch in this Las Vegas Bowl match-up.
Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington - #6, 6'1, 190
Trufant is an excellent athlete with an ideal skill set for a cover corner. He has long arms and at 6 feet, good height to compete with taller receivers.
DJ Harper, RB, Boise State - #7. 5'9, 201
A very small compact runner. Harper hits the hole hard with short choppy steps with great burst. Injury History
Joe Kellogg, OG, Boise State - #61, 6'2, 309
An athletic lineman, Kellogg excels in space and getting to the next level. He has great feet and utilizes his hands and leverage very well. Kellogg has a sturdy base and great balance in pass pro. A technician, Kellogg could have a long career in the NFL as an interior lineman. Later round pick
Jamar Taylor, DB, Boise State - #5, 5’11 196
Taylor has exceptional speed and hands. He has a knack for making big plays in the passing game. Taylor has fluid hips and is able to turn well in pass coverage, and is very good on the edge versus the run. To add to this I have seen him make several business decisions on some tackles similar to Jenkins.
