College Gridiron Showcase Week 2 Standouts and Studs
NFL Draft Diamonds has teamed up with the College Gridiron Showcase in Texas and this All-Star event is to help give seniors an opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of NFL scouts. Week 2 had some amazing games and some close finishes, but there were five seniors who really caught my eye. Let’s talk about these five players and how Draft Diamonds and the CGS really thought they had a stand–out game week 2.
Joe Burrow, QB, LSU – Joe Burrow and LSU buried the Texas Longhorns and the gunslinger for the Tigers looked phenomenal. He went 31-39 for 471 YDS and 4 touchdowns. On the season already Burrow has 749 yards and 9 touchdowns with one interception. The Athens, Ohio native looked like an NFL quarterback this past weekend, and he shined.
Jaquan Artis, LB, Lenior Rhyne – This week Jaquan Artis put his name on the map, with 2.5 sacks in his first game of the year. Artis looked great this week and the Kinston, North Carolina native has great size and speed. He is 6020 and 245 pounds and has a great burst. The Lenoir Rhyne team has some studs on defense and Artis is making scouts turn their heads.
Darrell Stewart, WR, Michigan State – The 6020 wide receiver from Houston had a great game this week against Western Michigan. Stewart had 185 yards receiving and 1 touchdown. I like this kid he is a big-bodied wideout with great hands. He looks like a gem in this draft.
Milo Hall, RB, Northern Colorado – Northern Colorado got beat up this week by Washington State but give the senior RB from Denver a lot of credit. Hall rushed for 113 yards and 1 touchdown. The 5080 running back has burst and had great hands. I like this kid he reminds me of Austin Ekeler.
Thomas Gordon, WR, Furman – The 6000 wide receiver plays on a team that likes to run the ball, but he went off this week. Furman put up a dog fight against Georgia State, but give TG a lot of credit. The Charlotte, North Carolina native had 164 yards and 1 touchdown on 8 receptions. He caught the eye of me this week.
