Scouting the Fort Worth Bowl

The Jayhawks return to the post-season after a short layoff thanks in part to pulling an upset over Iowa State in the season's final game. Houston makes a return trip after sitting home last year. All eyes will be on Kansas junior Charles Gordon.

Kansas

Name Pos # Yr Rnd Report
Jermial Ashley DE 97 4Sr FA Offers size and growth potential yet coming off a disappointing season.
Theo Baines CB 20 4Sr FA  
Banks Floodman OLB 5 5Sr FA Tough, instinctive defender constantly around the action.  Plays with reckless abandon.  Projects as a back-up for several linebacker spots.
Charles Gordon CB 3 4Jr 2\3 Tremendous athlete who also impacts the games as a return specialist or helps out at receiver.  Offers terrific cover skills but lacks top size for the next level.
Clark Green RB 30 5Sr FA Aggressive interior runner with marginal playing speed.
Charlton Keith DE 99 4Sr 6\7 Undersized yet explosive pass rusher who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage or in pursuit.  Could project to linebacker.
Nick Reid OLB 7 4Sr 7 Playmaking linebacker who plays much faster than his stopwatch speed.  Has a real shot at the next level.
Mark Simmons WR 83 4Sr FA Tall, slender receiver with an outside shot as a fifth receiver in the NFL.
Matt Thompson C 55 5Sr FA  
Bob Whitaker G 77 4Jr 5\6 Nice sized, small area blocker with starting potential in the NFL.
