    D.J. Swearinger, DB -- South Carolina: Swearinger does not receive the notoriety many of his headlining teammates do, yet NFL scouts have taken notice of his play. He's a well-rounded defensive back who usually lines up at safety but can also play cornerback. Swearinger did exactly that against Arkansas and displayed NFL skills throughout the game. The senior lead the Gamecocks defense with 13 tackles and also intercepted a pass in the second half which he returned 69-yards for a score. He's a versatile defender with the size and speed needed to start at the next level. Swearinger could now jump into the third round of the draft.

    Devin Smith, CB -- Wisconsin: Smith has shown steady development all season and scouts like his next-level potential. He led the Badgers defense with two interceptions and eight pass break-ups prior to Saturday's showdown with Indiana. Smith then made several critical plays during Wisconsin's 62-14 victory, including a pair of pass defenses and an interception that helped end drives. He was projected as a late-round pick prior to the season, but his ability to line up in man-to-man or zone coverage has elevated his stock.

    Chris Jones, DL -- Bowling Green: Jones was considered a future free agent entering the season but has since risen into the middle rounds. The senior has taken his game to another level, producing 17 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks and five quarterback hurries with two games remaining on the schedule. He beats opponents with quickness, hustle as well as smarts and offers potential as a three-technique lineman. Expect Jones to be selected in the middle part of the draft's final day for any team that desires an interior pass rusher.

    Corey Fuller, WR -- Virginia Tech
