In the game of the week with National Championship ramifications we get to see some of the top talent in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Both teams feature rosters loaded with talent. Oklahoma will run out one of the best passing catching duos in the country in Landry Jones and Ryan Broyles. We will not see stud OLB Travis Lewis in the game due to an injury but he’s a top 50 draft pick. Florida St. has some intriguing talent and one of my favorite prospects in the 2012 NFL Draft (or possibly) in CB Greg Reid. We will also preview DE Brandon Jenkins, T Andrew Datko, and LB Nigel Bradham.
Guys to keep an eye on:
Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma #12 (Junior)
Landry Jones has all the physical abilities of a top flight NFL QB but will have to get past the knock of the “system quarterback.” Jones will be tested by a very talented defense and in particular secondary of FSU. This could be the game that makes or breaks Jones as a top 10 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. The FSU secondary may be the best in the country from top to bottom and Jones will have to be accurate at all levels of the field to avoid turnovers against the corner duo of Greg Reid and Xavier Rhodes.
Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma #85
Ryan Broyles probably doesn’t get enough credit for his spectacular hands. His size is an issue and may relegate him to the slot in the NFL but he has great burst and excellent hands to make up for the lack of size. Broyles will face his toughest competition all year against FSU and a break out game could mean a spot in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
