Scout Watch: Badgers, Blue Hens

The Packers will have scouts at Wisconsin vs. Fresno State and Richmond vs. Delaware on Saturday.

The Packers will have scouts at Saturday's Fresno State-Wisconsin and Delaware-Richmond college football games, according to Scout.com's Chris Steuber.

Fresno State at Wisconsin

The top draft prospect for the Badgers is senior Garrett Graham. Graham is a standout tight end who projects to an H-back/fullback in the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Graham caught 40 passes for 540 yards and a team-high five touchdowns last season, and hauled in six passes for a career-high 82 yards last week against Northern Illinois.

Fresno State has three quality prospects: the senior backfield tandem of Lonyae Miller and Anthony Harding and junior linebacker Nico Herron. Miller, a 5-foot-11, 220-pound halfback, rushed for 812 yards and seven touchdowns in 12 games last season while Harding, a 6-foot, 220-pound fullback, rushed for 822 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games. Herron was the Western Athletic Conference's player of the week last week after posting five tackles and a 94-yard interception return for a touchdown against UC Davis.

Wisconsin: Garrett Graham, FB; O'Brien Schofield, OLB; Chris Maragos, FS; John Moffitt, C (junior); Jay Valai, SS (junior); Gabe Carimi, OT (junior); Zach Brown, RB (junior) Isaac Anderson, WR (junior).

Fresno State: Lonyae Miller, RB; Anthony Harding, FB; A.J. Jefferson, CB; Seyi Ajirotutu, WR; Ryan Matthews, RB (junior); Nico Herron, MLB (junior).

Richmond at Delaware

It's not exactly a marquee matchup, but Richmond has produced Lawrence Sidbury (fourth round, Atlanta, 2009) and Delaware is the alma mater of Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco, so there will be some talent on display for Packers scout Lee Gissendaner.

The top player in this game is Delaware junior quarterback Pat Devlin, who completed 12-of-15 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns last week.

"Devlin is a big quarterback, not as big as Flacco, but he's 6-foot-4, 220 pounds," Steuber said. "He has a solid arm and can make all of the throws. He just transferred from Penn State and is really taking advantage of his opportunity with the Blue Hens. He's a nice player and is attractive to NFL scouts."

Richmond: Eric Ward, QB; Matt McCracken, OG; Justin Rogers, CB (junior); Kevin Grayson, WR (junior).

 Delaware: Matt Marcorelle, OLB; Brandon Gilbeaux, DT; Charles Graves, FS; Pat Devlin, QB (junior).
