Field Gulls Community Scouting Form

Game Previews Peach Bowl Coverage Fiesta Bowl Coverage Orange Bowl Coverage

Peach Bowl



  • Cody Prewitt, FS, 6'2" #217 - Leader of the land sharks, Prewitt is a true centerfielder with good size and instincts. He tackles well and has good not great speed.
  • Senquez Golson, CB, 5'9" #176
  • Chucky Hunter, DT, 6'1" #305 - Multiple all-B12 performer; kind of a Jordan Hill type.
  • Kevin White, CB, 5'10" #175
  • Paul Dawson, OLB, 6'2" #230
  • Sam Carter, SS, 6'1" #215
  • Devonte Fields*, DE, 6'4" #250

*Fields was voted the 2012 AP Big 12 Defensive POY as a true freshman.  He was dismissed from TCU following a domestic assault incident similar to Dorial Green-Beckham, but Fields was unable to enroll in Stephen F. Austin. He enrolled in a JUCO and may declare. He seems unlikely to be drafted but could be a priority UDFA.

Fiesta Bowl


Boise State

  • Austin Hill, WR, 6'2" #215 - Big, fast WR, built like a RB; still getting it back after missing 2013 with an ACL.
  • Terris Jones-Grigsby, RB, 5'8" #198 - Not quite the size SEA likes, but great open-field runner.
  • Mickey Baucus, OT, 6'7" #305
  • Jay Ajayi, RB, 6' #216 - Nice size, speed, power, elusiveness, but has had problems with ball security.
  • Jeremy Ioane, SS, 5'10" #192

Orange Bowl

Mississippi State

Georgia Tech

  • Benardrick McKinney, ILB, 6'4" #249 - The LB is a do-it-all for MSU. However, he's not as advanced in coverage as former Bulldog K.J. Wright.
  • Dak Prescott, QB, 6'1" #230 - I like his pro prospects better than some, but he'd be best served to stay in school
  • Preston Smith, DE, 6'5" #270 - May be better-suited to bulk up a bit and play inside
  • Justin Cox, FS, 6'2" #190 - JUCO CB with starting experience at both positions
  • Ben Beckwith, G, 6'3" #308
  • Kaleb Eulls, DT, 6'3" #295
  • Isaiah Johnson, SS, 6'1" #213
  • Shaquille Mason, G, 6'1" #311
  • Darren Waller, WR, 6'5" #232 - Obviously, with Tech WRs you're looking at athletic upside over production
