    Jake Locker/QB/Washington: Locker started the season with uninspired performances against BYU and Syracuse before an awful showing against Nebraska last Saturday. He completed just four of 20 passes for 71 yards and had a pair of interceptions. There's time for the senior to turn around his play, yet there's no denying he has hurt himself in the eyes of NFL scouts in the early going of the 2010 campaign. Greg Lloyd/LB/Connecticut: Lloyd did lead the Huskies with seven tackles during the loss to Temple. However, for the most part he looked stiff, struggled in coverage and also had several tackles broken.

    Colin Kaepernick/QB/Nevada: The Wolfpack signal-caller was a one-man show on offense, leading Nevada to a 21-point victory over Cal by accounting for 329 total yards and five scores. Ronald Johnson/WR/USC: The Trojans leading receiver is dependable and has big-play potential. He's averaged five receptions a game this season with four touchdown grabs, including a 53-yard score in the win over Minnesota last TorreySmith*/WR/Maryland: The Terrapins offense was anemic in the loss to WVU, except for Smith. The junior receiver finished with 149 receiving yards on just three receptions with two resulting in touchdowns. Smith, also a game-breaking return specialist, is a true vertical threat who has NFL size and home-run hitting speed. Jock Sanders/WR-RS/WVU: The multi-purpose Sanders produced in a variety of ways during the Mountaineers' border-war victory over Maryland. He made six receptions for 86 yards, added another 10 yards running reverses and averaged 23 yards on three punt returns. Eric Hagg/S/Nebraska: The Cornhuskers defensive backfield is loaded with next-level talent and it's easy to overlook Hagg, one of the most dependable players in the secondary. Brook Reed/DE/Arizona: Reed was a force in the Wildcats' upset victory over ninth-ranked Iowa on Saturday. The senior led the Wildcat defensive line with five tackles while also registering 1.5 tackles for loss and an equal number of sacks. An intense competitor, he gets every ounce from his 6-foot-2½, 255-pound frame.

    Pure WR. Think Terry Glenn only less girlie.

    The last thing in the world we need to do is spend another high draft pick on a WR in 2011 but he and USC's Stanley Havili are my favorite college players this year.
