M y take on the North practice

Johnathon Franklin surprised a few people winning 2 of 3 1 on 1s against blitzing LBs and DBs, his only loss was to high riser LB Kevin Reddick

Kenjon Barner also had a good day blocking (2 for 2 in 1 on 1s)and running. He's definitely shed the Oregon has too small backs stigma

Mike Glennon had a pretty good day of practice, Zac Dysert not so much, and Nassib was average

Nevada S Duke Williams had a good day as well, going 1 for 2 in 1 on 1 blitz drills and held up well in 1 on 1 pass drills

Fresno State S Phillip Thomas showed well in pass drills

The two CBs Desmond Trufant and Jordan Poyer continued to wow everyone with their skills. I liked how Trufant pushed Johnathan Cyprien out of the way to face Oregon State's Markus Wheaton himself. That speaks of immense confidence.

Speaking of Wheaton, he's become the star receiver of the North.

Texas WR Marquise Goodwin continues to impress with his speed although Poyer picked him off on a poor throw from Nassib.

In lineman drills, SJSU's OL Dan Quessenberry continues to hold his own, Kent State's OL Eric Winters played better today, both project to be guards and emergency tackles.

One offensive lineman not having a good week so far is Notre Dame's Braxton Caves. He's been dominated in 1 on 1s to the point where it's not funny anymore.

The clear star of the North trenches is Central Michigan's Eric Fisher. He's been awesome so far, shutting down everyone in his path.

UCLA DE Datone Jones was the other guy who stood out, even winning one against Fisher with a speed rush but losing one with a bull rush that Fisher was having none of.

SMU DE Margus Hunt has been getting beat like a drum in practices. He's very raw and it shows badly

TJ McDonald had a good day of practice in 1 on 1 blitz drill and pass coverage

My take on the South practice

La Tech WR Quinton Patton impressed a lot of folks with his jumping and speed. He's improved his stock massively in 2 days.

Baylor WR Terrance Williams continues to show everyone why he may be the best receiver in this class.

Tennessee TE Mychal Rivera had a good day of practice.

Georgia WR Tavarres King stood out as well showing good speed and better route running skills.

SDSU CB Leon McFadden opened the eyes of a lot of people both yesterday and today. He's a very physical corner that will get in your face with decent speed.

All 3 QBs improved from yesterday's bad performance but Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson stood out the most

Kentucky OG Larry Warford is a beast and the best South OL. If Eric Fisher is the star OL of the North then Warford is the star of the South.

Oday Aboushi did better at RT than LT where he was getting abused.

Georgia DE Cornelius Washington had a good day, showing both speed and power rush moves

RB Mike Gillislee of Florida and Stanford back Stepfan Taylor have looked good in both practices

Florida OT Xavier Nelson had a so so day at tackle. He's best suited at Guard in the pros.

Cal C Brian Schwenke had a good day although he was a little suspect when a DT just bull rushed him.

Georgia NT John Jenkins continues to plummet his stock by showing up heavy at the weigh in and getting pushed around easily.
