JagNation.com has confirmed the attendance of Jaguars personnel boss James "Shack" Harris at Saturday's Illinois-Western Michigan game. The top draft-eligible prospect from Illinois is junior cornerback Vontae Harris. With the Jaguars pass defense needing improvement, Harris may just be the answer. Harris has good size at 6'0", 204 lbs., and he has been clocked as low as 4.38 seconds in the 40 yard-dash. The former first-team all-Big 10 selection is also on the Jim Thorpe award watch list. The ball-hawking corner is also a solid tackler, as he has 58 stops, seven passes defensed, three forced fumbles, and an interception entering Saturday's action. Davis is projected as a first-round pick.
Another player who could help the Jaguars is senior offensive tackle Xavier Fulton. Fulton has an athletic 6'4", 300 lb. build with the ability to add 10-15 more pounds of muscle. Fulton is a bit raw, but he has fantastic potential and is currently projected as a third-round pick.
Some draft-eligible defensive prospects from Illinois are senior middle linebacker Brit Miller, senior defensive end Derek Walker, senior defensive end Will Davis, junior cornerback Dere Hicks, and junior strong safety Donsay Hardeman.
Some Illini offensive prospects are junior quarterback Isaiah "Juice" Williams, junior running back Daniel Dufrene, senior wide receiver Will Judson, junior tight end Jeff Cumberland, junior offensive guard Jon Asamoah, and senior center Ryan McDonald.
Quarterback Tim Hiller tops the group of Western Michigan prospects, as he is the prototype looking quarterback as he stands 6'5", 228 lbs. Hiller is an intelligent guy who has a good enough arm that's very accurate. Entering Saturday's action, Hiller completed 255 of his 372 pass attempts for 2856 yards, 28 TD's and just 5 INT's. Hiller is currently projected as an early second-day pick.
Senior free safety Louis Delmas is certainly an NFL prospect as he is one of the players whose stock is rising. Delmas measures in at 6'0", 196 lbs. and runs in the 4.4's. Delmas is a solid tackler which is reinforced by his 75 tackles and seven TFL. The ball-hawking safety has four interceptions on the season, and 12 for his career. Delmas is projected as an early second-day pick.
Some other defensive prospects from Western Michigan are senior defensive end Zach Davidson, senior cornerback Londen Fryar, and senior strong safety C.J. Wilson. Offensive prospects are junior running back Brandon West, senior wide receiver Jamarko Simmons, and senior tight end Branden Ledbetter.
