Default Las Vegas Bowl Cal versus BYU

Las Vegas Bowl- California versus BYU-more of the players I was interested were lineman, so I probably missed more things in other spots. Also most of the quality skill position players were underclassmen.

California

Ryan O’Callaghan OT 6'7' 355- Really big RT who appeared to handle his man in the run game and had decent feet when pass protecting. Guessing a 2nd rounder because he is a RT not a LT

Marvin Phillip OC 6'1 290- seemed to do a good job on the NT who looked bigger. Nice holes throughout the night along the OL. His type of player undersized, but good technical player usually goes around the 5th/6th round but often wind up as starters. Think he is in that category from what I saw tonight.

Harrison Smith S/CB 6'2 200- late round type but played a nice game with an interception and a couple of break ups...appeared to play on several special teams (did rough the punter)

Future watch Marshawn Lynch RB 5'11 200 (soph) good vision and quickness to the hole. Muscular looking build who plays (and looks) bigger than listed size and ran between the tackles a lot. Caught a couple of passes out the backfield also. 1st day type whenever he comes out.

DeSean Jackson WR (fresh)- explosive speed and quickness. On the small side, but could be very good.

BYU

Todd Watkins WR 6'3" 185 . Impressive player...thin but looks to have good speed and excellent body control. Made a full range of catches: one deep ball with an adjustment, one in traffic, one acrobatic. Guessing a 3rd/4th round type who will need to get stronger.

Vince Feula NT 6'1 305 was handled by Phillip IMO, probably a FA look at.

Manaia Brown DE- 6'2 315- out for the game. Had been invited to a post season game or two, but apparent won’t be able to play in those either. Did not here the why as out.

Future watch- Curtis Brown 6'0 205 (jr) productive similar build and style Lynch, but not as well known and not as good. Looks like a draftable player in the 2007 draft.

Note: Did not watch the Colorado State vs. Navy game.

I'm glad you didn't list that BYU O-lineman with the belly bigger than Montana. He could barely bend enough to get into a stance...and the crazy thing is that they had him in the special teams formations.

Probaly figured that by the time someone ran around "lunch room" the punt would off and the punter back on the sidelines with his warm-up pants on.
