Let's now though take a quick look at the 2011 South Roster, and see what kind of Texas talent will be represented this Saturday as a whole new crop of college football players aims to make an impression and improve their draft stock leading up to next April's NFL Draft.
Sam Acho, DL, Texas
Curtis Brown, DB, Texas
Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
Edmond Gates, WR, Abilene Christian
Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU
Jake Kirkpatrick, OL, TCU
Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M
Phil Taylor, DL, Baylor
Danny Watkins, OL, Baylor
In a recent post, Mocking Dan mentioned 10 intriguing players to keep an eye on. The list included TCU's Andy Dalton, who was born and raised in Katy, Texas, before heading north to Dallas to play his college ball. Here's what Dan had to say about Dalton.
| QB | TCU
It seems draftniks far and wide are in love with Dalton. While I think he's a solid quarterback – and certainly a winner – there's no area of his game that is stellar. To me, he's a good backup with some developmental potential.
Also included was Von Miller, a Wrecking Crew linebacker that played at a high level for the Aggies all year.
| OLB | Texas A&M
This is a personal choice, to be honest. Most seem to love Miller. In fact, he was the South's media representative after players checked in, so he's highly considered. But what exactly can he do besides speed rush? This week will be big for Miller.
