According to Scout.com NFL Draft Expert Chris Steuber, Jaguars Assistant Director of College Personnel, Tim Minghey will be at the UAB-Troy game on Saturday. UAB has a rising quarterback prospect in Joe Webb, as well as two solid junior prospects, tight end Jeffrey Anderson and wide receiver Frantrell Forrest.
In two games (against Rice and SMU), Webb has completed 30 of 50 passes for 447 yards, with four touchdowns and four interceptions, with a passer rating of 145.5. Webb has also ran 38 times for 291 yards and three touchdowns. Tight end Jeffrey Anderson has caught seven passes for 111 yards and a touchdown on the season. Frantrell Forrest also has seven receptions for 122 yards and three touchdowns in two games.
Here's an excerpt from a Scout.com feature by Chris Steuber on the Troy prospects--
Some of the three prominent prospects on the field Saturday that will sport Trojans jerseys are defensive end Brandon Lang, and linebackers Cameron Sheffield and Boris Lee.
Of the three, the two highly touted prospects from Troy are Lang and Sheffield. Lang finished the '08 season with 69 tackles, 17.5 for a loss, and 10.5 sacks; he's currently the third rated DE prospect in Scout.com's 2010 NFL Draft Rankings. And Sheffield, who emerged last season with 66 tackles, 12.5 for a loss, and 5.5 sacks, is the 10th rated OLB by Scout.com. But over the last two years, Lee, the fifth rated middle linebacker by Scout.com, has been Troy's leading tackler and one of the most underrated performers in the nation. Last season, the 6-foot, 242-pound Lee finished with 126 tackles, 9.5 for a loss, 4.5 sacks and two interceptions.
A wild-card prospect in this game is the quarterback from, Troy's Levi Brown. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Brown is a transfer from Richmond, who took over as the starting quarterback for Troy at the midway point last season after sitting out the entire 2007 season due to his transfer. Playing in 10 games last year, Brown emerged as an intriguing prospect by completing 61.7-percent of his passes for 2,030 yards and 15 touchdowns. He displayed great decision making as a starter and threw just three interceptions in '08. There are high expectations for Brown this year, and with another solid showing, he will climb up draft boards as the season progresses.
This is the second consecutive week that the Jaguars have scouted Troy (albeit versus Florida last week). Their defensive end Brandon Lang and linebackers Cameron Sheffield and Boris Lee all seem to be fits for a 3-4 defense.
