Filling Needs: Part 2

After the 22-0 drubbing by the Green Bay Packers, I think it is safe to say that offensive line and wide receiver are still at the top of most fans wish lists, including mine.  Three games to keep an eye on this week.  First check out the offensive line when Alabama travels to Arkansas at Noon ET on ESPN.  If you want to see one of the top receivers this season check out Arizona State hosting Stanford at 8 PM ET on ESPN.  (Stanford has a pretty good wide receiver too.)  Finally, for those who know defense wins championships find the SEC Network on your cable system and watch Georgia take on Vanderbilt at 7:30 PM ET.

Jonah Williams, Junior OT – Alabama
Height: 6’5″ Weight: 301 lbs

The best offensive linemen on the best team in the country.   Nearly an 82-inch wingspan gives him a very long reach.  Started at Right Tackle as a freshman, moved to Left Tackle as a sophomore, and has started all 33 games of his Crimson Tide career. Williams can play any position on the offensive line, including center, and his intelligence allows him to excel at all of them.

N’Keal Harry, Junior WR – Arizona State
Height: 6’4″ Weight: 213 lbs

Big, strong, and athletic.  Harry lacks top end speed but that has not seemed to hurt his numbers or his ability to get open.  He rarely drops a ball, often making the extraordinary look routine.  In his first college season, he had 58 receptions, 659 yards, and 5 touchdowns.  He then upped his production in 2017 with 82 receptions, 1142 yards, and 8 touchdowns. Through five games this season, the junior wide out has 31 catches for 419 yards and 5 touchdowns.  Harry also has three career rushing touchdowns.  He is projected as a mid to late first round pick but his stock continues to rise.

Deandre Baker, Senior CB – Georgia
Height: 5’11” Weight: 185 lbs

This is another case of the best defensive back on a team with great defensive backs.  Baker has been very productive during his time in Athens.  He has seven career interceptions with two of them coming in the first five games of 2018.  The Georgia defense is off to another great start as they are allowing only 13 points per game (tied for fifth in NCAA) and are sixth in total defense and 17th in passing defense. Baker has 26 career starts for the Bulldogs who have established themselves as one of the best defenses in the nation over the last two seasons.
