After another week of losses for the Giants and Jets – and before they can leave two others with a stunning clash against the Chiefs and Buccaneers in Week 8 – there’s another college football Saturday to provide an escape. . Even like Trevor Lawrence pour some cold water over the idea that it’s a lock to enter the project, there are plenty of choices to turn around and out to fill for the Jets and Giants next April.
Take a look at the latest list of games and the admissible prospects in the sketch intended to star in them:
No. 3 Ohio State at No. 18 Penn State, 7:30 p.m., ABC
Two of the Top Ten ranked teams have come up with very talented star prospects, led by Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields If the Jets don’t get the No. 1 pick but Sam Darnold still fights the rest of the world. year – or if they understand it and Lawrence lives in Clemson – he could think long and hard about drafting Fields? The Buckeyes also had first-round picks on cornerback Shaun Wade and guard Wyatt Davis, not to mention fans of wide receiver Chris Olave, center-back Josh Myers and defender Baron Browning.
Penn State has its share of prospect prospects, particularly in areas of need for the Jets and Giants – beyond just the top five draft pick LB Micah Parsons, who have been selected. Keep an eye on top rusher Jayson Oweh and tight end Pat Freiermuth, the Massachusetts native who earned the nickname “Baby Gronk.”
Texas at a 6 ° Oklahoma State, 4 p.m., FOX
The Jets and Giants both shot down on the left in the first round in April, but Texas’s 6-foot-7, 310-pound Samuel Cosmi will be one of the best on the court in 2021. The Longhorns also have the pass. Joseph Ossai, who had 13.5 tackles for the loss, five sacks and two interceptions last year.
On the other hand, Oklahoma State has offensive weapons as usual. Chuba Hubbard and wide receiver Tylan Wallace, who returned from a torn ACL last year, are two to keep an eye on.
Memphis at No. 7 Cincinnati, South, ESPN
The undefeated Bearcats have one of the top defenses in the country and Myjai Sanders is a big reason for that. The 6-foot-5, 258-pound rusher has already hit 3.5 yards and six touchdowns for the loss in four games. Sanders, who has entered the season as Pro Football Focus ’No. 9 returning to the defensive line, could become a target in subsequent rounds once the big-footed pitchers are off the board.
As for Memphis, watch out for cornerback TJ Carter if he’s healthy.
