Akeel Morris, tackling machine. Morris has commanded the Nevada defense for many seasons now and appears to be on the verge of declaring for the draft. He should be looked at hard for a top five pick in the upcoming draft for any team in desperate need of a defensive all-star, not just a linebacker.
 
While most of his opponents have been fairly weak, one should not overlook the win against Virginia where the Cavaliers were held to only 13 points in week one. The remainder of the season will be key in underlining Morris' chances at the Heisman but this should be the first defensive player to have a chance at it outside of Tyrone Jones (and he will be immediately followed by our candidate below!). Definitely keep an eye on this one.

Reed has been the exceptional MVP of Clemson for the past two years and is a key reason for their marked success in that timespan. While he hasn't been as active on defense this year we should still consider how amazing it is for him to excel in a two-way role of which there appear to only be 2-3 players in the whole league.
 
Clemson has already had 3 byes so his stats don't really compare. He's currently 4 for 59 yards a game receiving (including one stat-less game where he most certainly had receptions) and, while not putting up many obvious defensive stats, he remains one of the highest rated corners in the league consistently shutting down opponents. Reed is the reason stats aren't the only thing and all he truly needs is a Heisman moment. His odds are long but not impossible.

 while not putting up many obvious defensive stats, he remains one of the highest rated corners in the league consistently shutting down opponents. Reed is the reason stats aren't the only thing and all he truly needs is a Heisman moment. His odds are long but not impossible.

 

Thanks for this part of it. Clemson has had an absolutely lock down secondary, as the most yards they've allowed all year is 235 yards and they've recorded at least 1 INT each game (but at least 2 in 5/6 games) They've held 3 QBs to 0 TD 2+ INT games, and have only allowed 1 receiver to have 100+ yards. Every other receiver they've faced has had 58 yards or fewer. 

 

It's hard to judge a CB when you don't have video of his play, but Marquise has been a dominant man cover corner. His IRL Clemson comparison seems to be Mackensie Alexander, who despite 0 career INTs, was one of the best CBs in Clemson history. (I also suspect teams have been trying their best to avoid Clemson's CBs like the plague, as we have 2 5/5 CBs)

 

As for receiving, his first three games were when he was a WR3, as I didn't know that injuries were off for CFBHC. Since moving to WR2, he's had 270 yards on 17 catches and 2 TDs.

If Akeel and Marquise Reed both declare, they're both top 10 picks, almost certainly.  The value of the upper crust of this draft hinges on their decisions.
