    Gabe Carimi/OT/Wisconsin: The Badger has shut down top defensive talent in consecutive games and deservedly is watching his draft stock rise. Iowa's talented defensive line registered just a single sack during Wisconsin's victory Saturday. The previous weekend saw Carimi help hold top 10 prospect Cameron Heyward and the rest of the Ohio State defense sackless. The senior draws a variety of opinions in the scouting community but these two contests will be looked upon as statement games and should secure him a place late in round one.

    Kendall Hunter/RB/Oklahoma State: The Nebraska defense rarely gives up 200 yards rushing in a single game, never mind allowing one back to top the mark. Hunter did exactly that against the Cornhuskers, the second time he's rushed for 200-plus yards this season. He's elusive, often creating yardage when seemingly nothing is available. Hunter has topped the century mark in six of seven games this season while adding 24 receptions. He reminds many of Leon Washington, the multi-purpose threat now playing with the Seattle Seahawks.

    Jabaal Sheard/DE/Pittsburgh: Sheard's job was made tougher this season after teammate Greg Romeus was lost to back surgery in the opening weeks. Sheard answered the call and turned in another strong performance on Saturday. He had four tackles, two sacks and forced a fumble in the victory over Rutgers. His seven-game totals of 10 tackles for loss and seven sacks are better than his entire junior campaign.

    Ryan Broyles*/WR/Oklahoma: OU receivers have a history of posting dominant numbers on the college level but not delivering as pros. Broyles seems poised to break that mold. The junior has the speed to beat defenders deep and the quickness to elude opponents after the catch. The belief is Broyles will enter the draft after the season; he could secure a spot late in round one
