Knights Catching the Eyes of NFL Scouts

Although UCF is off to a disappointing start, there are a few players on the Knights that are catching the eyes of some NFL scouts. Find out which teams are sending their scouts to this weeks game and which players they will be looking at.

At Sunday night's game between UCF and Tulsa, scouts from the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers will be attendance and have been informed to check out the following players for UCF.

MLB, Chance Henderson, Junior
OLB, Bruce Miller, Redshirt Sophomore
DT, Torrell Troup, Junior
CB, Joe Burnett, Senior
CB, Johnell Neal, Senior
FS, Jason Venson, Senior
SS, Sha'reff Rashad, Senior
QB, Michael Greco, Junior

Not only will the scouts from both the Titans and 49ers be there, but the game will be featured on ESPN for the entire nation to watch. The UCF secondary will have a big opportunity to shine against the nation's top ranked team in offense, as Tulsa is expected to throw the football around plenty.

Sha'reff Rashad and Joe Burnett are two players that are quickly rising up draft boards and getting attention with their fine play of late. The Knights currently sit as a 23-point underdog against the Golden Hurricane, and there won't be as much pressure on UCF to perform, although with the nation watching (especially being that there isn't an NFL game televised Sunday night), this is a great opportunity for all of the Knights to shine and show that they can once again compete with some of the elite programs in college football.
