Game Recap Analysis

Clemson vs. Pittsburgh; Saturday, Oct. 23, 3:30 PM ET ABC

The Prospects:
    Clemson
  • WR Justyn Ross, No. 8
  • LB James Skalski, No. 47
  • LB Baylon Spector, No. 10
  • DE Xavier Thomas, No. 3
  • SS Nolan Turner, No. 24
  • DE Justin Foster, No. 35
  • RB Lyn-J Dixon, No. 23

  • DE Deslin Alexandre, No. 5
  • WR Taysir Mack, No. 11
  • LB Cameron Bright, No. 38
  • RT Gabriel Houy, No. 57


The Matchups: Pickett has been dominant this season and has ripped up ACC defenses. The Tigers field one of the better defenses in the league, and they will test Pickett with some dangerous young pass rushers. This will be an important tape for Pickett as he tries to become a top quarterback prospect.

  • Game Recap Analysis

    LSU vs. Ole Miss; Saturday, Oct. 23, 3:30 PM ET CBS

    The Prospects:
      LSU
    • DE Ali Gaye, No. 11
    • G Chasen Hines, No. 57
    • G Ed Ingram, No. 70
    • LB Micah Baskerville, No. 23
    • RT Austin Deculus, No. 76
    • LB Damone Clark, No. 18
    • FS Todd Harris, No. 4
    • DT Neil Farrell, No. 92
    • C Liam Shanahan, No. 56

      Ole Miss
    • QB Matt Corral, No. 2
    • OLB Sam Williams, No. 7
    • LB Lakia Henry, No. 0
    • DE Tariqious Tisdale, No. 22
    • CB Keidron Smith, No. 20
    • C/G Ben Brown, No. 55
    • FS Jaylon Jones, No. 31
    • CB Deane Leonard, No. 24
    • WR Dontario Drummond, No. 11
    • LB Mohamed Sanogo, No. 46
    • SS Jacob Springer, No. 1
    • WR Braylon Sanders, No. 13


    The Matchups: Unfortunately, LSU star cornerback Derek Stingley had foot surgery and is out indefinitely. Tigers defensive end Ali Gaye has been out as well, but they still have a fast front seven that can get after the quarterback and they be a quality test for Corral. Corral needs to produce well over the back half of the year to be a top quarterback prospect for the 2022 NFL Draft.



    Game Recap Analysis

    USC vs. Notre Dame; Saturday, Oct. 23, 7:30 PM ET NBC

    The Prospects:
      USC
    • DE Drake Jackson, No. 99
    • WR Drake London, No. 15
    • FS Isaiah Pola-Moa, No. 21
    • RB Keontay Ingram, No. 28
    • OT Jalen McKenzie, No. 70
    • WR Kadarrian Nixon, No. 21
    • RB Vavae Malepeai, No. 6
    • TE Erik Krommenhoek, No. 84
    • CB Greg Johnson, No. 1
    • QB Kedon Slovis, No. 9

      Notre Dame
    • SS Kyle Hamilton, No. 14
    • DT Myron Tavovailoa-Amosa, No. 95
    • QB Jack Coan, No. 17
    • LB Shayne Simon, No. 33
    • DT Jayson Ademilola, No. 57
    • FS Houston Griffith, No. 3
    • LB Drew White, No. 40
    • CB Tariq Bracy, No. 28
    • K Jonathan Doerer, No. 39
    • WR Avery Davis, No. 3


    The Matchups: The best draft matchup in this game is wide receiver Drake London going against safety Kyle Hamilton. Both are big, physical, and tough football players who set the tone for their units. If London can show an ability to find some separation from the Fighting Irish defensive backs, that would be huge for his draft grade.
