Scouting the Las Vegas Bowl

BYU finally makes it back to the post-season while Cal once again returns to a bowl game under coach Tedford. Several interesting prospects along the lines of scrimmage and one terrific underclassman tight end.


 Name Pos # Yr Rd Report
Matt Berry QB 8 4Sr FA Physically talented prospect who sits on the bench.  Could get an invite to camp.
Manaia Brown DT 99 5Sr
A physical specimen out of position in the Cougars defense.  Could make a move up draft boards in February.
Johny Harline TE 89 3So 3 Outstanding young pass-catching tight end.
Cameron Jensen ILB 35 3Jr 6 Solid run defender on the inside.
Lance Reynolds C 54 4Sr FA
Hard working blocker yet limited athlete.
Nathan Soelberg CB 13 4Sr FA
Naufahu Tahi FB 3 4Sr 4\5 Quite possibly the most underrated fullback in the country.  A true triple threat player (blocker\ball carrier\pass catcher).
Paul Walkenhorst OLB 47 5Sr FA
Once promising prospect whose career was riddled with injury.
Todd Watkins WR 1 4Sr 4\5 Field stretching receiver coming off a disappointing campaign.  Offers a lot of upside for the next level and could develop into a dangerous number three wide out.
