Originally posted by sfout:Bump - We must have given our scouts the week off for Thanksgiving or Chris Steuber is slacking on his reporting as we reportedly only sent scouts to 1 game.
Utah @ Colorado
Notable prospects include
DT Star Lotulelei - Unlikely as he is projected to go anywhere from #1 to #5 overall but maybe we go all Julio Jones if he falls out of the top 3???
CB Ryan Lacy - Espn ranks him as the 17th best corner of the draft and I've always been a fan of his overall game
34 DE Joe Kruger - Has a bit of a hot head and some terribly inopportune offsides/neutral zone infractions but he has one hell of a motor
DT/DE Dave Kruger - More even keeled then his brother but just as much of a motor. Their brother Paul Kruger plays for the Ravens.
RB John White - Incredibly undersized at 5-7 190 but I could see him as a ST ace in the NFL and he is a tough runner
WR/KR Reggie Dunn Ted Ginn body type of 5-9 170(ginn is 5-11 180) just scored his 5th KR 100 yard KR TD and has tons of other long run backs and modestly contributes on offense.
Colorado - I dont know anything about Colorado but according to ESPN they only have 5 prospects all borderline UDFA
ILB - Doug Rippy
TE - Nick Kasa - From the few games I've caught Kasa looks comparable to Garrett Celek.
S - Ray Polk
OT - Ryan Dannewitz
DT - Williams Pericak
I'm very surprised that we didn't send anyone to the USC / Notre Dame game. But like I say on the front page we must've given most of our scouts the weekend off.
I bet Dunn was the target. Ginn is likely playing his last season with the team and Dunn is dynamic as a returner. Teams rarely kick to him, yet he's already returner 4 kickoffs for scores. He's averaging around 45 yds/return. Dunn could potentially develop into a slot WR, but it's unlikely. I think he'll go around the 5th-6th purely as a return specialist.
For CU, I think Ray Polk is an interesting guy. He was recruited as a RB and converted to FS as a sophomore (I think). He battled injuries the last couple years and never developed into a ballhawk, but he's pretty athletic and likes contact. He seems to fit the mold that the team likes. He'd be an asset against the run.
Delanie probably won't be back either, so Nick Kasa makes a lot of sense. CU was a mess this year, but Kasa is much better than the stats appear. He's a big TE, listed at 6-6 260lbs and uniquely athletic. He'll be an effective blocker in the NFL and he'll match up well against safeties. Kasa could be a huge steal if stays healthy and develops in the right system. There's word of him possibly coming back for another season, but I think the NCAA has to approve it. That might even be settled by now, not sure. He'll probably move up boards when teams start seeing his athleticism in work outs. I don't know where he's projected, but his potential will probably have him settling around the 4th-5th, possibly higher if he smokes the workouts. His speed is going to be the kicker.
