Auburn vs. Mississippi State

Josh Bynes - #17 - LB
Mario Fannin - #27 - RB
Lee Ziemba - #73 - LT
Mike Blanc - #93 - DT
Wes Byrum - K

Mississippi State
Derrek Sherrod - #79 - OT
Pernell McPhee - #90 - DE
K.J. Wright - #34 - OLB
Chris White - #50 - ILB
Charles Mitchell - #4 - S

Pernell McPhee 1st - 14:50 - Doesn't show impressive speed here in pursuit

1st - 13:37 - Off-set I form ... Nice instincts, great tackle on FB burst and forces 4th down ... clutch play here and showed a little toughness

1st - 13:02 - Lacks flexibility, fluidity, agility to change directions and steer angle to sack QB after getting by TE ... could have used hands better at POA and gotten more physical with TE

1st - 2:03 - 2-pt stance ... Good strength in absorbing initial block from RT ... under control, but bad tackling technique and misses tackle

Disappointed with McPhee's lack of explosive athleticism, but he's tough and very good in run support

K.J. Wright

1st - 14:50 - Lacks speed, range ... instincts not great on this play

1st - 12:39 - Poor job in taking on block technique wise ... good job of keeping RB instead of giving him outside edge ...

2nd - 6:35 - Bad instincts ... could have limited run but stays passive, gets blocked and doesn't make a play when potentially in position

2nd - 0:49 - Difficult to describe how bad White is on this play ... he has no clue what is going on, gets blocked by WR ... caps off a bad first half

Charles Mitchell

1st - 14:31 - Terrific job in run support ... nice angle, good instincts ... good solo tackle

1st - 11:35 - Can't get off block in deep half

Seems a little finesse and doesn't like to mix it up ... gets blocked easily and not as active as I would prefer

(ESPN Broadcast skipped coverage here)

Derrek Sherrod

1st - 0:58 - Athletic and smooth in getting to 2nd level to block MIKE ... comfortable in space ...

1st - 0:22 - Stays relatively low in block and uses lower body to anchor ... Holds ground and seals off running lane

2nd - 12:30 - Poor kick step
