by Tommy Lawlor  –

Prospects and Stats from Week 2

* Kansas LB Justin Springer was in on 15 tackles in the win over Ga Tech.  3 of them were TFLs.

* Ole Miss MLB Jonathan Cornell had a good game vs Tulane.  He was in on 11 tackles (7 solo).  He added 3 sacks and a pass break-up.

* Boston College LB Mark Herzlich continued his comeback.  He had 4 tackles and a TFL vs Kent State.

* Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett had a monster game vs ULM.  He was 28-43-400 with 3 TDs.

* LSU DT Drake Nevis is off to a fast start.  He had 2.5 sacks vs Vandy.  He was in on 5 total tackles.

* Florida CB Janoris Jenkins continued his strong season.  He had a 30-yard PR vs South Florida.  He also added a sack and an INT.   

* Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan had a monster game vs Western Illinois.  He was in on 12 tackles (9 solo).  He had 4 TFLs (one of which was a sack).  Not bad.

* A pair of Senior QBs struggled vs tough opponents.  FSU’s Christian Ponder was only 11 of 28 vs Oklahoma.  Idaho’s Nathan Enderle threw 5 INTs vs Nebraska.  Both guys are still good prospects, but those were disappointing games.

* Kansas St. RB Daniel Thomas had 21 carries for 137 yards and a pair of TDs.

* Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara was in on 7 tackles and also broke up a pair of passes in the win over Idaho.

* West Va RB Noel Devine had 10 catches in the win over Marshall.  They only accounted for 62 yards, but 10 catches by a college RB is pretty impressive.  He also ran for 112 yards.

* Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph is only a Junior, but could easily come out early.  He had a monster game vs Michigan.  Kyle caught 8 passes for 164 yards.  One of the catches was a 95-yard TD that gave the Irish a temporary lead late in the game.  Outstanding athlete and gifted receiver.

* Michigan ILB Jonas Mouton was in on 14 tackles in that game.  He added a TFL and INT.

* Rutgers Saftey Joe Lefeged came up big for Rutgers.  He was in on 6 tackles.  He picked off a pass and forced a pair of fumbles.  He also blocked a couple of punts.

* Washington QB Jake Locker bounced back from a so-so opener.  Locker was 22-33-289 for 4 TDs vs Syracuse.  Those are the kind of numbers he should put up on a regular basis.

* Syracuse MLB Derrell Smith played well in the game.  He had 9 solo stops (5 assists) and had a TFL.
