Scouting the Peach Bowl

Quite possibly one of the best bowl match-ups in the post season, the Peach Bowl will offer immense "next level" talent in the trenches. Several juniors will also be playing their final game for the Hurricanes.


 Name Pos # Yr Rnd Report

Claude Wroten DT 98 4Sr 1\2 Lacks classic size yet a first round pick who could be the second tackle drafted in '06.


Name Pos # Yr Rnd Report
Baraka Atkins DT 98 4Jr 2\3 Seriously considering entering the draft.  Could be used at DT, DE or as a two-gap end.  Lot of upside.
Kareem Brown DT 99 4Jr 2\3
Terrific yet raw prospect who'll be highly rated in '07.
Rashad Butler T 64 5Sr 3\4
Potential LT who needs to add bulk and strength.  Solid developmental prospect with starting possibilities in the NFL.
Thomas Carroll DE 90 5Sr 6\7
Pass rushing end with limited size.
Orien Harris DT 92 5Sr 3\4
Flashes skill yet has disappointed scouts with the inability to become the focal point of the defense.
Devin Hester CB 4 3Jr 1st Great football player.  Must improve his techniques and rely on more than natural abilities to make plays.
Quadtrine Hill FB 23 5Sr FA
Offensive fullback who must become a lead blocker.
Kelly Jennings CB 22 5Sr 2\3
Terrific cover-corner who plays a timid game.  Struggled with a shoulder injury all year.
Roger McIntosh OLB 50 5Sr 3\4
Physically gifted prospect with abilities at several linebacker spots.  Durability and lack of instincts are issues.
Marcus Maxey CB 24 4Sr 3\4 One of the most underrated cover corners in the nations.
Tyler McMeans G 68 4Sr FA
Brandon Meriweather S 19 3Jr 2\3
Athletic safety with solid cover skills but marginal size for a centerfielder.
Brian Monroe P 39 3Jr 5\6
Ryan Moore WR 85 4Jr 5\6 Close to announcing for the draft.  Has watched his play regress the past two seasons. Suspended and will not play.
Tyrone Moss RB 30 3Jr 3\4 Good prospect on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Sinorice Moss WR 83 4Sr 3rd Game-breaking sprinter developing his game.
Javon Nanton DE 57 4Sr 5\6 Undersized defensive end with the computer numbers which equate well to OLB.

Tony Tella G 61 5Sr 5\6
Strong, small-area blocker.
Greg Threat S 5 4Sr FA
Run defending safety with marginal skills in coverage.
Leon Williams ILB 44 5Sr FA
Nice sized linebacker whose play has been plagued with inconsistency.  Possesses upside but must kick it into gear.
Eric Winston T 74 4Sr 1st
Has not looked completely healthy since the knee injury of '04.  Improved his run blocking as a senior yet watched his pass-protection skills slide a bit.
