This Week in College Football

Top Performances:

SMU QB Tanner Mordecai:

The Oklahoma transfer has been playing consistently well all season long and hasn't gotten quite as much respect in that regard as I feel he should. Mordecai doesn't possess a crazy arm, but he plays his part well as the point guard of that SMU offense and distributes the ball well and accurately. Mordecai is also a better athlete than given credit for, having ran a 11.04 100m(87th percentile).

Kansas QB Jason Bean:

Came surprisingly close to upsetting Oklahoma and had a very solid and efficient performance. Many may not know that Bean is arguably the fastest QB in college right now, having ran a 10.36 100m(92nd percentile). Beans arm looked impressive on Saturday having thrown balls with great zip while on the run. Has been playing well this season after transferring in from North Texas, and potentially making himself a draftable prospect.

Louisiana-Lafayette RB Chris Smith:

Had a big game against Arkansas State on Saturday, as the next in line of this current Louisiana-Lafayette RB dynasty. They have a couple of other RBs behind him who garner a lot of touches as well, but it was Chris Smith's week this week. A 200+ yard rushing performance is always eye-opening, and Smith was very efficient while doing it, almost averaging 10 yards per carry.

Illinois RB Chase Brown:

Was a total workhorse player on Saturday for Illinois, in one of the worst games of the week against Penn State, which went to a record-setting 9th overtime. Brown was a bright spot though with his 200+ yard rushing performance. Brown is a good athlete as well having ran a 10.88 100m(88th percentile).

USC WR Drake London:

Has been a target monster for USC this year, and is commanding a large portion of their Market share stats. London was able to consistently get open vs Notre Dames secondary and made the most of it. He didn't get as much work downfield as I would like, but this is still a dominant performance London. Many are now considering him a 1st round lock for the draft, which I would disagree with, but it's hard to deny London has come out and been very impressive this season.

Nevada WR Romeo Doubs:

Unfortunately, I was unable to get my hands on any Nevada vs Fresno State film, but I had to give him this last spot due to his absurd performance. 200+ yards and 19 catches for one of my favorite WRs in college right now. He is a fantastic athlete and has a well-rounded game, but suffered from some drop issues in the past. He is one of the best deep threats in college, and the combo of him and Strong couldn't be much better.

Honorable Mentions: TCU WR Quentin Johnston, South Alabama WR Jalen Tolbert, BYU RB Tyler Allgeier, Texas A&M RB Devon Achane, Wisconsin RB Braelon Allen.
