    Week 7 in the college season saw a number of teams fall from the ranks of the unbeaten. It was also a weekend where several highly regarded NFL prospects turned in breakout performances and helped lead their teams to victory. Here are the nine top performers from Saturday's games and notes on a prospect previously mentioned as a riser.

    Vinny Curry, DE-OLB, Marshall: One of the best kept secrets of the 2012 NFL Draft plays for the Thundering Herd and is impressing league decision-makers every weekend. In seven games this season Curry has totaled 9.5 sacks, 17.5 tackles for loss and 42 tackles. He also has a safety and two blocked kicks to his credit this year. On Saturday, Curry posted 3.5 sacks against Rice, 3.0 of which came on third down. He has the skills to be used out of a three-point stance as a one-gap defensive end and Curry is also getting a lot of consideration as a 3-4 outside linebacker. He looks like the next first round pick from Marshall.

    Conrath is 6-7 and 280. He started out at DE as a true frosh, when he played starter's minutes, and is now playing tackle in Virginia's 4-3 front. I think he'll end up at DE, regardless of scheme. He's always been good at pushing the pocket.

    Curry is a stud, I'd be pretty happy if he was our choice in Round 1.

    Curry is real good and did the same thing last year but he level of competition is that great.
    whitney mercilus is another player everyone should be looking at. He is putting up better stats this year vs better competition.
