    Giovani Bernard*/RB/North Carolina: Bernard turned in a premiere performance during the Tar Heels loss to interstate rival Duke. His stats included 160 yards rushing on 24 carries (6.1 yard average) with a score. Bernard also added five receptions for 63 yards with another touchdown. He's a patient ball carrier with outstanding vision and football instincts. Bernard runs with great balance and easily strings several moves together over the course of a run, eluding defenders and creating yardage. He's a terrific talent with a bright NFL future.

    Tavarres King/WR/Georgia: King suffered from a string of subpar performances before his breakout game against Kentucky. The sure-handed pass catcher hauled in nine passes for 188 yards and two scores during the Georgia victory. He has flashed skill throughout his college career but has yet to pull the pieces together. King offers potential as a fifth receiver at the next level and can climb into the middle part of the draft's final day if he builds upon the Kentucky contest.

    Josh Evans/S/Florida: Evans continues to prove himself to be one of the better run defending safety prospects in the nation. He lead the Gators with seven tackles during the victory over South Carolina, which gives him a team-leading 44 tackles this season. Evans is a hard-hitting prospect who covers well between the numbers. He's a good fit as a late-round pick for a team which will employ him in a zone system.

    Luke Joeckel*/T/Texas A&M: The Aggies suffered a devastating loss against conference foe LSU, yet Joeckel stood out. The junior left tackle shut down Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery, a pair of Tiger pass rushers destined to be first-round picks next April. Handling Mingo and Montgomery was impressive, yet Joeckel's ability to stop the oncoming blitz really stood out. He's a tall blind side protector who plays fundamentally sound football. Joeckel is a prospect who should quickly start at the next level.

    One of the big things I noticed in the A&M/ LSU game was how Joeckel and Matthews handled Mingo and Montgomery for the most part.

    This is the most interesting paragraph of the story. I bet at least one comes out. Probably Bray. Even more interesting is the Cowboys had scouts at the Va Tech/ Clemson game yesterday.

    I've always rated Jake Matthews ahead of linemate Luke Joeckel. He's just better, IMO. He completely dominated Mingo on A&M's opening drive.
