    David Yankey/G/Stanford:Yankey was high on everyone’s list after playing well at left tackle as a sophomore. But the film, specifically game film from his freshman campaign of 2011, showed guard is his natural position. He proved as much in Stanford’s victory over Arizona State. Yankey combines athleticism and fundamentals to dominate defenders on the line of scrimmage or in motion. He easily turned ASU defensive linemen from the action and also looked flawless annihilating linebackers on the second level. Yankey comes with a complete game as well as top 35 potential.

    Jonotthan Harrison/C/Florida: There were a number of reasons to be impressed with Harrison during the Gators victory over Tennessee. Foremost is the power and ability to control the middle of the field he showed all game. Fundamentally sound, Harrison is an immovable object who easily controls opponents once engaged in a block. The fact Harrison was seamless in transition after Florida’s starting quarterback left the game was another intangible to appreciate. Harrison won’t fit a zone blocking scheme yet a ball control offense will fall in love with him next April.

    James Hurst/T/North Carolina: Despite a difficult loss to conference foe Georgia Tech, Hurst played well during Saturday’s contest. The Yellow Jackets struggled getting pressure off the left side, which Hurst protected, and more times than not were forced to send defenders off right tackle. Hurst is not always pretty getting the job done but he effectively uses blocking angles and body positioning to seal the edge and protect his passer.

    Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech (#45), 6’3, 240
    Attaochu and James Hurst are two of the top prospects in the AC, so the chance to see them go against each other was something I couldn’t miss. Unfortunately I didn’t see as much of it as I would have liked. Attaochu played away from Hurst on most downs. Attaochu had a sack going against Hurst, as well as multiple pressures and forcing a holding penalty on the other side of the line. He shows a great burst of the line and great speed and hand use to get around the edge. What I haven’t seen from him is much use of a bull rush or spin move. Not sure if he has it in his arsenal or not but would like to see him develop another move. He continues to look like a top prospect for next year’s draft.
