Noteworthy: UCLA's Korey Bosworth (No. 26 outside linebacker) is a nephew of Brian Bosworth. Temple's Andre Neblett (6-2, 300; No. 25 defensive tackle) was first-team all-MAC. Someone to watch down the road is Temple running back Bernard Pierce, who was voted to the freshman all-America team after rushing for 1,308 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Steuber's take: Verner (five interceptions, one touchdown) is a guy to take a look at it. He's a big corner who could probably play some safety, as well. The big thing with him is speed. He doesn't have a lot of game-breaking speed. He's more of a savvy type of veteran cornerback. He's very solid. A lot of people like him. Temple has some guys that are intriguing. Dominique Harris (No. 25 safety) is about 6-2, 225 pounds. He's a big, physical safety. He's not the best playmaker but he's an intimidator back there.

Noteworthy: The Hurricanes' stud left tackle, Jason Fox (No. 8 offensive tackle), is out with a leg injury that required surgery. He finished with 47 career starts and could be a first-round prospect. James is a nephew of Edgerrin James. He's shared time with Graig Cooper in the backfield. Cooper, a junior, has not commented about whether he will enter the draft, fueling speculation that he will do just that. Miami freshman quarterback A.J. Highsmith is the son of Packers scout Alonzo Highsmith, who will be working at the game. Wisconsin's undersized O'Brien Schofield (No. 32 defensive end) posted 10 sacks and 22.5 tackles for losses.
Steuber's take: I love Graig Cooper. I think he has a chance to be an outstanding running back. In a draft where running back isn't the top position as far as talent — (Clemson's) C.J. Spiller is the top runner, then you have (Georgia Tech's) Jonathan Dwyer and (Cal's) Jahvid Best as (undeclared) juniors — Cooper could fit in there somewhere in the second or third round. He's very versatile and a big-time playmaker with good speed and vision. He's in the line of Clinton Portis when Miami had him back in the day. Darryl Sharpton is a very good linebacker. For Wisconsin, O'Brien Schofield is more of a mid-round guy. Tight end Garrett Graham (45 catches, seven touchdowns) would probably be a fullback. He's in the middle rounds, as well.
