    Wisconsin senior OLG John Moffitt does not look the part with a bad body that looks like it has not seen the weight room, but he has natural girth and scouts say he plays better than he looks, competing hard on Saturdays and having the versatility to play either guard or center. He has warranted some fourth-round grades from evaluators in a typically weak guard class. He has been very durable throughout his career and has been a rock on an offensive line that has keyed the Badgers' success this season. When the Badgers have needed yardage on the ground, they have consistently run left this season.

    • Moffitt's linemate, senior OLT Gabe Carimi, played better this season against Ohio State's Cameron Heyward and Iowa's Adrian Clayborn than he did a year ago. Next, in his 45th start on Saturday, he gets a chance to match up with Purdue's high-motor DE Ryan Kerrigan. Carimi has shown improvement battling in the run game this season, but he still lacks anchor strength and does not have the grit that homegrown Badgers have come to be known for. While he has been hyped as an early-round selection and could be overdrafted because of the great need for left tackles, he has graded out more like a mid-round talent this season.

    • Ohio State senior OG Justin Boren possesses the mass at 315 pounds to maul defenders in the run game, and despite some questions about why he transferred from Michigan upon Lloyd Carr's retirement, he has proven to be strong, stout and very efficient in a phone booth for the Buckeyes this season, warranting draftable interest.

    • Ohio State CB Chimdi Chekwa stood out in a 52-10 win over Minnesota, notching his third interception of the season and recording a sack and forced fumble that allowed the Buckeyes to scoop and score.

    I would add Bosten College OT Anthony Costanzo to the "over-hyped" group too.
