After a fast start Southern Miss lost four of its' final five games. Still they have two highly rated NFL prospects. Once again North Texas makes it to New Orleans for a bowl game...this time with no draft picks.
Southern MissDustin Almond/QB/4Jr/9: Solid junior passer with an adequate arm and throwing accuracy. Tough but lacks the top pocket stature. UDFA
Jeremy Parquet/T/5Sr/77: Big, powerful blocker that dominates the opposition. Athletic but needs to improve his blocking techniques. Strong-side prospect at either guard or tackle. Pre-draft workouts will determine if he's a first day selection. Late 3rd roundMichael Boley/OLB/5Sr/27: Excellent weak-side guard prospect that stands out in pass coverage while also displaying toughness against the run. A good 40-time at the combine puts him into the first day. Early 3rd round
Marvin Young/WR/5Sr/88: Consistent wide out with good hands. Fifth receiver at the next level who must impress returning punts.
North TexasAdrian Awasom/DE/4Sr/85: Nice sized lineman with athletic ability. Flashes skill yet does not make enough plays. Some team will bring him into camp next summer. UDFA
Markeith Knowlton/CB/4Sr/2: Good athlete whose college career has been hampered with injury. UDFA
