Battle Red Nation has confirmed the attendance of Texans scouts at Tuesday night's Western Michigan-Ball State game.
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 Tuesday's action, Hiller completed 305 of his 448 pass attempts for 3382 yards, 33 TD's and just 6 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 92 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.
Ball State has several top prospects, despite being a small school located in Indiana. Junior quarterback Nate Davis could play on Sunday's next year if he decides to leave school and scouts love the arm and athleticism of the 6'2", 218 lb. signal caller. Davis was a first-team all-Mac selection a year ago and was the MAC West player of the week during week nine. Davis has completed 201 of 299 passes entering Tuesday's contest for 2822 yards, 24 TD's and just 6 INT's. Davis has also scrambled for 177 yards on 42 rushing attempts including three touchdowns, and has even caught a touchdown pass. Davis is currently projected as a first or second-round pick.
Some other offensive prospects from Ball State are junior running back MiQuale Lewis, senior tight end Darius Hill, and senior offensive tackle Robert Brewster, all of which could be late-round picks.
Defensive prospects from Ball State include senior outside linebackers Bryant Haines and Kenny Meeks, senior cornerbacks B.J. Hill and Trey Lewis, and junior strong safety Alex Knipp. Senior punter Chris Miller is also projected as a late-round pick.
