1. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, LB, Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Fighting Irish were able to get a big win over Clemson this week and a lot of that is thanks to their defense. While they allowed 40 points, the game did go into double overtime and the defense made several key plays. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah made a huge impact in helping Notre Dame get the win.
Owusu-Koramoah had a huge day for Notre Dame. He tied for the team lead with nine tackles and also tallied 2.5 tackles for loss. The biggest play of the game for him came when he picked up a dropped pitch by Travis Etienne and returned it for a touchdown. Owusu-Koramoah has worked himself into first round consideration and will have plenty of opportunity to prove himself the rest of the season.
2. Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson Tigers
While the Tigers did lose this game, their offense isn’t to blame. Even without Trevor Lawrence, they put themselves in the right position to win the game. The offensive line did well in pass protection, as DJ. Uiagalelei was only sacked twice all game.
Carman played solidly in the passing game, but like the rest of the line, could have done better run blocking. The Tigers finished the game with 34 rushing yards on 33 rushes. Carman has a lot of work to do for his stock to go up, as it is a deep tackle class.
3. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida Gators
Florida had a dominant offensive performance to beat Georgia in their rivalry game, 44-28. It was a big win that will vault the Gators back into the national spotlight for the rest of the season. A lot of the credit for their win needs to go to Kyle Trask, who had a great game.
Trask finished the game with 474 passing yards and four touchdowns. His best target, Kyle Pitts, had to leave the game after being contacted in the head, which made Trask’s performance more impressive. There are a lot of quarterbacks playing well right now, but Trask is on a good track to be a second day pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
4. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia Bulldogs
The Georgia defense couldn’t stop Florida all game. They allowed 44 points and even though they had a few good plays, it wasn’t a good overall performance. Florida seemed to pick on Campbell a lot and it wasn’t his best performance.
Campbell gave up two touchdown catches. One was to Trevon Grimes and the other was to Kyle Pitts. Campbell was in decent position, but seemed to struggle with the size of the receivers. It wasn’t a great day, but he is still a solid corner who may be selected later than originally expected.
5. Kwity Paye, Edge, Michigan Wolverines
Michigan had another tough loss this week to Indiana. Their defense had trouble containing Michael Penix, as he led the Indiana offense to a 38-point performance. Kwity Paye had a solid performance, even if the Wolverines did lose.
Paye finished the game with five total tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hurry. There are a lot of solid edge rushers in this class, but Paye has played solidly this season.
