Hottest risers from the Texas vs. Nation game so far:

OT Jared Veldheer, Hillsdale
DT Travis Ivey, Maryland
WR Jeff Moturi, UTEP
QB Levi Brown, Troy -- I like Brown's upside. I think he's got a future if he develops and gets a chance one day.
OLB/ILB Danny Batten, South Dakota St. -- practiced and excelled at both positions.
DE/OLB George Johnson, Rutgers


Cold players from the practices:


WR/KR Trindon Holliday, LSU - Dropped pass after pass, and then lost a fumble when given opportunity as a runner.
DT Charles Alexander, LSU - Did nothing even against weak opponents in practices.
TE Gerald Harris, Mississippi
DE Alex Daniels, Cincinnati

Thanks OTC, I couldn't find anything on TV.

Watching the game now, dammit I guess I overlooked Tim Hiller on the roster, didn't know he was gonna play in this game.
My top 10 for the week:

1) Jonathon Crompton- Showed superior arm strength, and made all the throws. Probably moved himself into the 4th round with this week.

2) Jared Valdeer- The smoothest, best OL on the field this week. Very mobile and a knee bender, which separates him from almost all the competitors from this game. Could sneak into the second round, but I think will be a high 3rd rounder. However, he will reportedly run under 5.00 at the combine, and that would be huge for him.

3) George Johnson- Went from being completely under the radar to a player who looked strong and fast in practices. Ran through, under, around OT's. His matchups with Valdeer were the best of the week. I think he could sneak into that mid-4th round.

4) Jeff Moturi- I thought he was the best route runner of the week. Easily gained separation against CB's in practice sessions, making some look silly. His combine times will be huge, but to me, this is not as important as what I saw in the practice footage.

5) Trindon Holliday- I separate ways with most who followed this week with Holliday. To me, he's completely out of everyone else's league this week in raw speed. He made others look like they were running in slow motion. Had the dropsies, but that can be corrected. You can't teach speed, and he is electric. To me, looking at a 4th round grade that might move to a 3rd if he runs like the wind and catches the ball well at the combine.

6) Clay Harbor- Looked terrifically smooth running routes, and is clean in and out of cuts. Looks like a player who can cause matchup problems with the back seven, and NFL teams love players who fit this mold.

7) Nick Howell- While I never love to praise USC players, the Trojan guard defeated interior defenders effortlessly in practice one-on-one sessions. Bends really well and uses leverage superbly. Smooth.

8) Danny Batten- A rising prospect who could end up playing 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB. Looked quick in drills, and although raw, seems to have the size/speed combination to make an NFL roster.

9) EJ Wilson- Consistently drove OT's into the mock-QB in practice sessions. Isn't particularly special around the edge, but good enough to make OT's honest so he can knock them back off their feet.

10) Travis Ivey- Any time a 6'4", 341 NT has a good week, it is a week that will fill pockets with lots of green stuff. Ivey looked stout, and this draft may be the deepest in NT in more than a decade.

Hard to find any info on the game. Veldheer looked like sh*t in the game and allowed 3 sacks.
How did Brandon Sharpe do?

one of the best pass rushers ive seen in this draft class--but a major character risk

Valdeer is a player that I've been loosely monitoring. Is he a legit OT, or more of a career back up who might turn into something down the road? If he is legit, could he be a low cost, value pick to compete for the RT spot with the Niners?

Based on the game he's a developmental project at best. It will be interesting to see what he does at the combine. Is he really the most athletic lineman in the draft at 6'8 and 315 pounds or is he just someone who got away with inflating his triangle numbers because he went to a school no one heard of?

Either way he's not an instant at tackle which is something we desperately need.
