College Football Week 3: Not a great week for top prospects. Still looking like a dominant defensive line class, with not much clarity with corners and QB’s.

UP/DOWNPLAYERNOTES
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Ed Oliver, DE/DT, Houston
NOTES:
Was double and even triple teamed throughout the game vs. Texas Tech, and was kept under wraps most of the game. Looked exhausted by the half.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
NOTES:
Was again looking dominant, with the best hands of any defensive linemen to come out in years, but a lower abdomen injury could be a lingering concern.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Bryce Love, RB, Stanford
NOTES:
Why does a playmaker like Love need to be rested?
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan
NOTES:
With five QB pressures, Gary led another impressive performance by the Michigan defensive line. Seeing double and triple teams, which won’t make him flash on tape, but the fact that he is still being effective while taking extra blockers is impressive.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Devin White, LB, LSU
NOTES:
Dumb, dumb unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that could have really cost his team. They ended up beating Auburn, and he again showed excellent range and awareness, but the selfishness of the penalty is a red flag.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
NOTES:
No fair way way to judge the Clemson defensive line against a vastly inferior offensive line.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Andraez “Greedy” Williams, CB, LSU
NOTES:
Wasn't tested against upper level talent, but looking more comfortable and seems to be instinctively reacting more, and thinking less.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Raekwon Davis, DE, Alabama
NOTES:
Noticeably double and triple teamed, and still pushed back blockers. Can play in any scheme and has versatility to move up and down the line.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
NOTES:
Top level talent, but looked over-matched vs. Alabama. Needs to be more consistent.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
NOTES:
Outshined by Metcalf for most of the game, and never really flashed against the talented Alabama secondary.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia
NOTES:
The cornerback class is often the slowest to come into focus for the NFL draft, and playing cupcakes at the start of the season doesn’t help. However, Baker looked every bit the part of a first round pick, showing anticipation and better discipline this week.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
NOTES:
Exceptionally consistent. Quietly making his case to be the top tackle in the draft.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson
NOTES:
No fair way way to judge the Clemson defensive line against a vastly inferior offensive line.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
NOTES:
Inconsistent and inaccurate, and will need to bounce back next week against a top level opponent or else he could be facing a quick drop with draft stock.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Jeffrey Simmons, DT, Mississippi State
NOTES:
Part of Ole Miss defensive line that showed nothing against Alabama. Never stood out against the best team in college football.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Rodney Anderson, RB, Oklahoma
NOTES:
Injury news will be important in the coming weeks.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn
NOTES:
The loss to LSU was not on his shoulders, as he continued to dominate in both the run game and getting pressure. Top defensive tackle at this point.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Brian Burns, OLB/DE, Florida State
NOTES:
Another terrible effort by FSU, but Burns played hard on every play and continued to look like one of the few guys giving a full effort. Exceptional array of pass rush skills.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
NOTES:
No fair way way to judge the Clemson defensive line against a vastly inferior offensive line.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State
NOTES:
9 receptions for 86 yards, and seeing opponents' best defenders. Keeps producing at key moments in games.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
NOTES:
With poor performances by a few other top QB prospects, Lock continues to put together solid performances. Three passing TDs, and another rushing TD with 375 yards passing, he is moving up draft boards.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Montez Sweat, LB, Mississippi State
NOTES:
A pass rush artist, and thus it is worrisome when he can't produce any pass rush at all.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
Zach Allen, DE, Boston College
NOTES:
Continues to produce QB hurries. Interesting to see how he can do against some better offensive lines.
UP/DOWN:
PLAYER:
David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
NOTES:
The dominant Wisconsin offensive line got pushed around by BYU.
