From A(beln) to W(yatt), Part Two

Taking a look at every USA U-19 player to take part in the IFAF World Championships. Part Two starts with Dajaun Drennon and ends with Darius Mosely.

Dajaun Drennon, DE — Arguably top defensive player in attendance. Three-down end with strength and ability to get to the quarterback in the passing game. Has the frame to add more good weight.

Lance Duran, LB (Blinn C.C.) — Undersized linebacker has some pop to him at the point of attack. Also has some straight-line speed. Coaches say he's an ideal hard-nosed 'backer.

Tarean Folston, RB — Good runner with quick feet and change of direction. Lethal when used as a receiver out of the backfield. Folston really improved as Team USA moved into the games, and even played some slot.

Tavares Garner, CB (Texas A&M) — Has had his moments. Excellent athlete. Still a bit raw as a cornerback. A lot of upside with his speed and length for his size. One of the better cornerbacks here and emerged as a starter.

Khari Harding, LB (Arkansas) — One of several athletic linebackers in attendance. Harding made multiple plays in pass coverage. Returned a pick-six against Austria. Breaks on the ball well for a linebacker.

Trent Hosick, QB (Missouri) — Shame Hosick left for family issues. Vastly improved as thrower over the week. Can make every throw. Outstanding runner. Has 'it' factor as a leader. Will kill himself to make himself better.

Connor Hundley, RB (Akron) — Doesn't jump out physically. Just a really good runner. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in feet, vision and cut-back ability. Found the secondary hole better than any other back.

Dashon Hunt, CB — One of the better defensive backs in attendance. Short, but is competitive and has ball skills. Breaks on ball well. Hits like he's a 200-pounder. Isn't afraid to stick his nose in.

Jacob Hyde, DT (Kentucky) — Big-bodied defender is tough to move off the ball. Lacks height, but his low center of gravity and weight make him a solid nose tackle.

Dakota Jackson, TE/DE (Virginia Tech) — Has played mostly DE because of lack of depth at position. May project best there, has been able to generate pressure at times. Is better blocker than receiver at tight end, where he will start at Virginia Tech.

Cory Jasudowich, LB (Boston College) — The man in the middle for Team USA. Built thick, muscular. Is a leader, and gets to right place at right time. Throwback player. Missed some time with injury.

Rashad Kinlaw, WR/QB (Notre Dame) — Smooth player with nice size. Will play cornerback at Notre Dame, but doesn't look out of place on offense. Good overall athlete. Was injured against American Samoa, and missed contests against Austria and Canada. Actually served as backup quarterback when Hosick left.

Isaac McDonald, LB — Looks the part maybe more than any player in attendance at 6-5 210. Runs well. Still figuring out football part. May even grow into a pass-rushing defensive end. Played some wide receiver to help balance out depth issues.

Herbert Moore, DT (Mississippi) — Another squat two-gap player, and Moore does a great job against the run. Has the ability to stack things up along the line.

Darius Mosely, CB (Illinois) — Improved as week went on. Picked off a pass at final practice before the first game, then picked off a pass against Austria. Has some cover skills, and was fluid in his pedal. Played safety here.
