Now that college football week 12 is in the books, it’s time to start talking about some of the players that saw a bit of a rise in their “draft stock” this week.
RB LeVante Bellamy, Western Michiganhttps://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
LeVante Bellamy is quietly putting together a very impressive season in the ranks of the MAC. Bellamy is a converted wide receiver who made the switch in time for his redshirt-sophomore season. It’s been nothing but good for the Broncos, but this year, Bellamy has really taken the next step.
Bellamy this season has set career highs already in rushing yards and touchdowns, now up to 21 rushing scores this season. He’s got excellent speed, and teams are going to crave that.
EDGE Quincy Roche, Temple
If you don’t know who Quincy Roche is, you really need to check him out.— ᴊᴏʜɴ D. A. ᴠᴏɢᴇʟ (@johndavogel) November 17, 2019
Temple EDGE guy, projects well to a 3-4 OLB. Reminds me a LOT of Khalil Mack coming out of school. Redshirt-Junior right now. pic.twitter.com/SvrdQm6Bh6
Quincy Roche was a guy that I personally pointed out last week in Temple’s win over South Florida as a guy I thought looked very talented. Roche has taken over the defense in the past two weeks, putting together 18 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the last two games.
Roche reminds me of NFL star Khalil Mack when the stud was coming out of Buffalo. Roche is a little thin, standing at just 6’4″ and 235 pounds, and needs to fill out his frame. That was the same knock Mack had coming out of Buffalo. Roche has NFL scouts watching closely now.
RB Zack Moss, Utahhttps://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
Zack Moss sat all of last season with a knee injury, but has played very well this season. He didn’t slow down in action against UCLA, in a must-need win for Utah. Moss just ran for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns, and added 4 catches for 73 yards.
Moss already is an outstanding runner. Having battled with a shoulder injury most of this season, Moss continues to show his versatility to the NFL and how valuable he could be in a pro offense. He’s a tough kid and offers the professionals a real toolbox.
QB Justin Herbert, Oregon
I hope folks don’t overthink Justin Herbert. They probably will, but they shouldn’t.— Jared Feinberg (@JrodDraftScout) November 17, 2019
Herbert’s arm talent is incredible and his ceiling is very high. With Tua hurt, he could be QB2. pic.twitter.com/5eZTMArmS4
With the injury to Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa on Saturday, it was very important for Justin Herbert that he step up and have a big game. That he did.
Finally, Oregon let him throw the football around the yard with some freedom, and Herbert paid dividends. Not only did he show off incredible arm strength and accuracy, Herbert completed 70% of his attempts and threw for 328 yards and 4 touchdowns as Oregon pounded it’s conference rival.
IDL Bravvion Roy, Baylor
Pretty nice individual play by Bravvion Roy beating Creed Humphrey's block and putting Jalen Hurts on the ground. OU was running the WR drag/QB draw RPO.— Lee Benson (@LeeBensonNews9) November 17, 2019
Baylor’s defense swarmed and dominated the Oklahoma offense for the first half of the key Saturday night match-up. Bravvion Roy was the center piece of the defensive front that made quite an impression on NFL scouts.
Roy put in some work on Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey and really gave him a hard time. His size is already a problem for offenses to deal with, but with his quickness, he’s a real menace. He’s gone from off of people’s radar to a potential late round pick, and projects well as a nose tackle in a 3-4 front.
