    Taylor Lewan/T/Michigan:Lewan was dominant throughout the Wolverines victory over Notre Dame and justified his ranking as a top ten prospect moving towards next April’s draft. He was terrific in pass protection and displayed outstanding skill blocking in motion. What stands out about Lewan is the combination of athleticism and blocking fundamentals. He blocks with incredible knee bend for a 6-foot, 7-inch tackle and easily moves about the field or redirects to linebackers on the second level. Everyone knew the Notre Dame contest would be a challenge for Lewan and like the Wolverines, he came out victorious.

    Tyrus Thompson/T/Oklahoma: The junior tackle was outstanding during the Sooners victory over West Virginia and seems to have really elevated his game this season. He’s another fundamentally sound blocker whose pass protections skills look next level ready. Thompson easily slides laterally to protect the edge and his use of blocking angles helped shut down West Virginia pass rushers. He also performed well run blocking as Sooner ball carriers picked up big yardage off the left side. Thompson was susceptible to the bullrush and left the game in the fourth quarter with a seemingly serious ankle injury. Regardless, this game put scouts on notice that Thompson has the makings to be the next top tackle prospect from the Oklahoma program.

    Denzel Perryman/LB/Miami: The Hurricanes defense, lead by Perryman, held on tight and did just enough to upset interstate rival Florida. The junior made several timely stops during the game, leading the Hurricane defense with 13 total tackles as well as forcing a fumble. Perryman is on the small side yet shows elements of former Miami great Ray Lewis in his game. The athletic linebacker is fast, tremendous in pursuit and offers the versatility to line-up in multiple defensive schemes.

    Jimmy Gaines/LB/Miami:
