If you enjoy offense then the Meineke Car Care Bowl is a must watch. Texas A&M and Northwestern both have explosive offenses and pedestrian defenses. The Aggies are led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receiver Jeff Fuller both of whom are considered second round prospects in April’s upcoming draft. Northwestern is in a position to contain the Aggies passing attack as their defense is led by seniors Jordan Mabin and Brian Peters, a cornerback and safety respectively. The two wildcats are both considered late round selections at this time.

2nd Ryan Tannehill QB 17 5Sr Durable intelligent signal caller with a great feel for the position. Sees the field, finds open wide outs and makes proper decisions. Lacks the big-time arm which will limit him at the next level.
2-3 Jeff Fuller WR 8 4Sr Tall possession receiver with reliable hands. Offers the quarterback an imposing target. Solid on third-down or in the red zone. Overall game lacks speed and quickness. Solid yet not spectacular prospect.
3rd Cyrus Gray RB 32 4Sr Creative, elusive ball carrier that creates his own yardage and is also an effective receiver out of the backfield. Not a true feature runner.
5th Garrick Williams OLB 8 5Sr Disciplined hard-working linebacker best as a two down defender.
6th Eddie Brown DT 39 4Sr Quick, explosive interior lineman that plays with good pad level. Fluid moving about the field. Gets locked up at the point of attack yet offers potential as a three technique lineman.
7th Sean Porter OLB 10 3Jr Fast fluid sideline to sideline linebacker that makes plays in every direction of the field. Comes with an upside and a solid weak side prospect.
FA Steven Campbell S 2 3Jr Active safety that quickly comes up the field to make plays while also showing the skill to get outside the numbers in coverage.
FA Coryell Judie CB 5 5Sr Tough cover cornerback that fights hard to defend throws and shows a good head for the ball. Possesses just average physical skills.
FA Uzoma Nwachukwu WR 7 3Jr Reliable possession receiver with poor measurables.
FA Terrence Frederick CB 7 3Jr
FA Tony Jerod-Eddie DT 83 4Sr
