Michael Brockers | DE Hometown: Houston, TX
Cesar E. Chavez High School
Ht: 6'6" Wt: 260


ESPN TOP 150

Evaluation

Brockers is a good-looking tall lean athletic defensive prospect. He has long limbs and a good frame. He has good size now, but still has plenty of room to pack on additional needed bulk. He displays the ability to be a menacing edge rusher. His greatest value may be as a pass rushing end, at least initially in his college career. He has a good get-off and can quickly get up-field. He flashes the initial burst to be able run by a blocker and will use a rip move to try and help him turn the corner. He has a good wingspan to help him separate and reel in quarterbacks. He is a good player versus the run, but can flash some inconsistency in this phase of the game. He flashes the initial quickness to slice through blocks and make plays in the backfield. He has the reach to push blockers off of him and shed. He will flash the ability to squeeze down, but often times will turn his shoulders or come too far up-field and need to make a rounded turn to try and get back in on plays inside. He can be physical at the point of attack, but because he is so tall and rangy he is leverage disadvantaged and struggles at times to hold his ground. He will display the ability to shed, but at times needs to give ground. He has good straight line speed and pursues to the ball. At times though he seems to be right there to make a play and will not flash that closing burst you want to see or will make the play but does it 3-4 yards later than you thought he would. He has adequate short-area change-of-direction skills. He is a solid tackler. Brockers has some impressive tools, needs to keep developing some parts of his game. He could provide quick a.ssistance as a pass rusher and has upside to be a well rounded and productive end at the college level.


Drayton Calhoun | RB Hometown: Tucker, GA
Tucker High School
Ht: 6'0" Wt: 175


ESPN TOP 150

Evaluation

Calhoun does not possess ideal measurables and is not overly flashy as a running back prospect, but when you watch him on film he is extremely productive and projects well as a college back. Taller, wiry build with room for much needed bulk and strength to a.ssist his yards after contact production at the next level. Quick to the hole and shifts gears well picking and sliding his way through traffic. Good in-line runner with his low body-tilt and one-cut and go downhill style. Finds the north-south seam and squares up his shoulder pads very quickly out of his cuts. One of the better backs we have seen in this class cutting at full speed with little wasted motion. Flashes a deceptive second gear in the second level and competitive top-end speed. While he runs with good pad level, balance and toughness as a runner, yards after contact production is a concern at the next level. He will need to build good bulk and strength through his hips and lower-body to continue breaking tackles as an in-line runner. Rarely gives opposing defenders a clean shot on him but durability could be an issue as well with his downhill running style, particularly if asked to carry the load. Bottom line, Calhoun displays good vision, excellent body control and a natural feel as a running back; possesses the athleticism and hands to play in the slot and good overall versatility as a prospect.

Notes
Committed during junior year. Also recruited by Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, Mississippi State...

Michael Ford | RB Hometown: Leesville, LA
Leesville High School
Ht: 5'10" Wt: 200


ESPN TOP 150

Evaluation

Ford is a load of a back with rare change-of-direction quickness for a power-runner. He is compact and thickly-built with great bulk particularly through his hips and lower-body. Possesses the frame to be a high-carry, durable back at the next level who can wear down a defense. Displays good vision and pick and slide running skills through the initial traffic. Shows great stop-start and plant and go cutting ability. Not a burner but reaches top speed quickly and flashes a great initial burst to shift through traffic or run through tackles. Will lower the shoulder on contact, break through high arm tackles and drag the pile with great leg drive and lower-body strength; very difficult to get a clean shot on this kid with his low center of gravity and balance. Finishes runs and consistently falls forward on contact. Flashes good openfield elusiveness for a stouter, solidly-built back and quickly squares up his pads out of his cuts and loses very little in transition. However, lack of top-end speed is a concern; he will not win many footraces against faster defensive backs at the next level and is more of one-gear back. With that said, Ford could develop into a workhorse-type college runner while still giving you the suddenness to turn a short run into a big gain. Good running back prospect with physical maturity to contribute early.

Notes
Committed during junior year. 2007: Carried 69 times for 468 yards (6.8 average) in four games. Missed most of the season with a broken collarbone. 2006: Rushed for 1,334 yards and 18 touchdowns and 181 carries (7.4 average). Also recruited by Alabama, Florida, Florida st., Ole Miss.

Janzen Jackson | CB Hometown: Lake Charles, LA
Barbe High School
Ht: 6'1" Wt: 185


ESPN TOP 150

Evaluation

Jackson is a rare defensive back prospect who combines safety size and physicality with cover corner speed and quickness. He is tall, athletically-built and utilizes his size well in both run and pass support. Shows smooth footwork in his pedal and transitions very quickly breaking on plays in front of him. Flashes exceptional burst and plant and drive skill closing the cushion. Combines excellent anticipation skills with rare closing speed and explosiveness in space to undercut routes or flatten receivers. Generates great power in the short-area and is a devastating hitter. Flashes good skills in deep zone coverage tracking and bursting under the football; possesses excellent ball skills and is a threat with the football in his hands. Great pass defender but could possess even better run support skills. Displays excellent range, pursues with sharp angles and can use either his upper-body strength to f!ght through the stalk-block or slip it with great quickness. Excels at setting the edge and containing the run. A textbook tackler who breaks down in space and drives through ball carriers with rare force. Allowed to free lance a bit and will need to polish up his man-to-man and press technique, but he is a gifted athlete and should give his future defensive coordinator great scheme versatility with his excellent instincts and ability to play both safety and corner. A legit threat on special teams blocking kicks with his first step quickness and burst off the edge. Jackson is an excellent defensive back prospect with a supreme blend of size, speed, physicality.

Russell Shepard | ATH Hometown: Houston, TX
Cypress Ridge High School
Ht: 6'2" Wt: 183


ESPN TOP 150

*****5 Star QB

Evaluation

This guy reminds us of Percy Harvin lining up at quarterback on an every down basis which is a scary thought. Shepard is a lean, flexible athlete with a lot of wiggle to him. At first it is tough to tell if he is an athlete playing QB or the other way around and the more you watch him, the more you realize he's the real deal at QB. The majority of the plays this guy makes are with his legs as either a called run play or creating when the initial play breaks down which is where he really causes headaches for defenses because he can break down a defender in the open field with the best of them. Stays low to the ground and doesn?t take a lot of big hits. Has excellent vision, has the lateral mobility to bounce runs outside after starting inside and excels at locating cutback lanes. Takes little time to reach top speed, has the burst to turn the corner and gets through holes quickly. Accelerates out of cuts, can change directions quickly and has fluid suddenness in space. Will win most foot races. As a passer he has a smooth, fluid release and his delivery is quick and compact. Flashes the ability to place the ball anywhere on the field, shows some zip on underneath throws to fit into tight spots and has great touch and timing on the deep ball. Throws the ball really well on the run and has the arm strength to throw off balance and across his body. Everything about him is explosive-- his change-of-direction skills, his arm, his speed and his ability to make people miss is exceptional. He is the type of player that you want the ball in his hands as often as possible. Overall, Shepard is much further along at this stage than Terrelle Pryor was in the passing game and this guy is more explosive. Rare athlete and outstanding prospect.

Notes
Committed during junior year. Reportedly holding 35 scholarship offers at time of commitment (Houston Chronicle). 2007: Passed for 794 yards and seven touchdowns. Rushed for 1,525 yards and 18 touchdowns. Also recruited by Florida, Texas, USC, Michigan, Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Tennessee...

yea that n*gga was missing classes and meetings and sh*t. miles suspended him and he isnt taking part in spring practice. he is on a real short leash with miles now. if he follows up on everything miles tells him to do, he will be back on the team and taking over the starting position b4 the first game of the year.

i think once he really comes to terms with his dad's passing i think he will be walk the straight and narrow. i mean i hope he gets his sh*t together cuz im not comfortable at all with our other qbs especially heading in these tough a.ss games next season.

damn, they make Russell Shepard sound like a pure BEAST.....if his arm is like they're saying it is, he just might beat out JJ for the QB spot....Jefferson has a good arm, but they make Shepard sound like he has an EXCELLENT arm....

....and yeah, pretty much everything they said about Michael Ford is true...i've seen him play twice, and he impresses everytime, and also, seeing the highlights on the Friday Night Football shows and sh*t, he's nasty.....he could possibly be faster than they are advertising though....at least it looked that way when i saw him ....if i had to compare him with current/former LSU backs, he'd be like a mix of Justin Vincent and Alley Broussard....

Those were the only big three we lost. We were looking at a top 5-7 ranking but now who knows. RP getting in trouble will probably have us lower even if he does return soon.

i dunno.....cuz they'll look at the fact that without RP, we'll have no experienced QB on the roster, so u never know what they'll think about that........it's all good though, the rankings at the BEGINNING of the season ain't as important as the ones at the END....

3/14/2008, 2:04 p.m. CDTThe a.ssociated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU officials have agreed to pay football coach Les Miles at least $3.75 million a year for five years, as part of a renegotiated contract deal after his team won the national championship.

The contract change will ensure that Miles is among the top paid college football coaches in the nation. He also is eligible to receive more money each year, depending on the team's performance both on the field and in the classroom.

The contract adjustment was signed Friday by Miles and LSU System President John Lombardi. The university system's governing board also must agree to the arrangement.
