    Sheldon Richardson/DL/Missouri: Richardson has improved almost weekly since stepping into the starting lineup this season and was a one-man wrecking crew against Central Florida. His 9 tackles were impressive as Richardson also forced a fumble, recorded one sack and posted two quarterback hurries. He's an athletic prospect who commands double teams and either makes a play on the ball or creates opportunities for his teammates. Richardson is not a household name yet, but highly regarded in the scouting community.

    Stephen Morris*/QB/Miami-FL: Morris turned in a career performance during the Hurricanes' last-second victory over North Carolina State. His record-setting numbers included 566 passing yards and 5 TDs. While many will focus only on the numbers, Morris looked good in all aspects of the game. The junior showed great patience, awareness and made terrific decisions in the pocket. He connected on five passes of 40 yards or more, including the game-winner of 62 yards. Morris is slowly developing into the complete package, melding his incredible physical skills into consistent, smart play at quarterback.

    Desmond Trufant/CB/Washington: The senior cornerback is the latest edition from the Trufant family to star at the position. He came up big during Washington's upset victory over Stanford, breaking up two passes and intercepting a throw in the fourth quarter that prevented the game-winning score. Trufant has been inconsistent in the past, yet possesses the physical skills to start in the NFL. He's expected to be a middle-round choice. Trufant will be playing on Sunday's next season like his brothers Marcus (Seattle Seahawks) and Isaiah (New York Jets).

    Remember this name. Sean Lee part 2.

    Michael Mauti/OLB/Penn State: Mauti, considered a potential second-round choice entering the season, continues to impress NFL front offices. Missing almost the entire 2011 campaign with a knee injury, Mauti was effective defending the run and covering the pass during Penn State's lopsided victory over Illinois on Saturday. He finished the contest with 6 tackles, 2 interceptions and was active all game. Mauti plays smart, tough football and looks every bit like a three-down defender.

    Sign me up for any Penn State LB. After the Lee/Bowman class I give any a shot. They all got the perfect mentality.
