CFB Scoop: Spring Fever part 1

Posted by Administrator On March - 17 - 2009

Spring football is right around the corner and in the latest CFB Scoop, we have amassed an inane amount of news for you to catch up on since you have been busy filling out your March Madness office pools.

The very first pick overall in the 2010 NFL Draft could very well be Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh. This mammoth defensive tackle measures in at 6′4″, 304 lbs. He has a rare combination of speed and strength which gives him the ability to run down ball carriers and beat the double team effectively. Do not forget this guy as you see Nebraska, led defensively, come back out of the woodwork and compete for a Big 12 Championship.

The Boise State Broncos have a skinny kid at quarterback named Kellen Moore. He weighs in at 6′0″, 187 lbs., but his mobility is not where one would think it is just by looking at him on Flickr. Regardless of his size, this sophomore passer is expected to bring Boise State back into the BCS and could very well do it. If he can add another 20 lbs. of productive weight, Moore could be a rising draft prospect despite his lack of height.

Penn State’s next all-time leading tackler, LB Sean Lee, is expected to be fully healthy for the start of the season after blowing out his knee last year. Lee, a fifth-year senior, still isn’t that great of a draft pick since getting injured. Scouts want to see more lateral quickness out of Lee. He is deemed as a tackling machine but a stat compiler as well.

Hoping that his immaturity is behind him, South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia has rejoined the team after a suspension from last year. Also, South Carolina DT Ladi Ajiboye has been suspended indefinitely. Ajiboye had 1.5 sacks last year but was expected to improve in 2009, his junior season.

Duke will be moving their former starting QB Zack Asack to safety. Blue Devils’ coach David Cutcliffe believes that this move will “help” his team. Asack was a struggling QB and after getting hurt, Thaddeus Lewis stepped in and did nothing but propel Duke out of the basement of the ACC.

Nevada running back Luke Lippincott was granted a 6th-year of eligibility by the NCAA. He has suffered numerous leg injuries, including torn ligaments, which he suffered in Nevada’s second game of 2008 versus Texas Tech.
