Both the Big Ten and the SEC send a 10 win team to this years Outback Bowl, each led by a smothering defense. There are a slew of talented players in this game led by Georgia linebacker/end Jarvis Jones. Jones led the SEC in sacks and tackles for loss and currently carries a first round grade. The Spartans have their own dominant defensive lineman in Jerel Worthy. Worthy can be a force and like Jones is considered a first round pick. Offensively Georgia has 2 mid round prospects in offensive lineman Cordy Glenn and tight end Orson Charles. Both are expected to go in the drafts first 3 rounds. Michigan State will try to put points up against a stingy SEC defense by leaning on senior quarterback/receiver tandem Kirk Cousins and BJ Cunningham.

2nd Jerel Worthy DT 99 4Jr Highly rated underclassmen that displays tremendous quickness and explosion in his overall game. Can be a game changer up front yet really needs to bend his knees and learn to play with leverage as all too often he’s easily neutralized at the point.
4th B.J. Cunningham WR 3 5Sr Large, productive possession receiver that can be the go-to guy in underneath coverage.
4th Chris Norman OLB 10 3Jr Athletic linebacker with a great amount of upside. Goes sideline to sideline, covers a lot of area on the field and consistently around the ball making plays. Could make a big move up boards if he continues to improve.
4-5 Trenton Robinson S 39 4Sr Efficient safety that is effective against the run and can get outside the numbers to make plays on the pass.
4-5 Kirk Cousins QB 8 5Sr Physically gifted passer that can make all the throws and does a great job commanding the offense. Needs to improve his reads but has a lot of next level potential.
5th Edwin Baker RB 4 3Jr Explosive ball carrier with nice size and the ability to break games wide-open.
FA Johnny Adams CB 5 4Jr Smallish yet athletic cornerback best suited for a zone system.
FA Keshawn Martin WR 82 4Sr Fast, game breaking pass catcher with a good amount of upside.
6-7 Joel Foreman G 67 5Sr Strong, nice sized blocker only effective in a very small area.
FA Tyler Hoover DE 91 4Jr Tall, hard-working defensive lineman with limitations. Could eventually develop into a solid run stuffer once he adds bulk to his frame and improves his playing strength.
FA Chris McDonald G 62 4Jr Quick blocker that shows skill in motion.
FA Keith Nichol WR 7 5Sr Efficient receiver with reliable hands and good downfield blocking skills. Potential fifth receiver at the next level.
FA Kevin Pickelman DT 96 5Sr Nice sized defensive lineman that flashes skill on occasion.

1-2 Jarvis Jones OLB 29 3So
2nd Cordy Glenn G 71 4Sr Large, wide bodied blocker that moves well on his feet. Quick off the snap, outstanding run blocker and show skill in pass protection. May get looks at left tackle this season but we project him as a power running guard.
2-3 Orson Charles TE 9 3Jr Athletic pass catching tight end that gets down the field and shows reliable hands. Gives effort blocking yet undersized. Will get looks at H-back.
2-3 Ben Jones C 61 4Sr Smallish yet a tough, intelligent blocker on the pivot. Plays with terrific fundamentals, outstanding with shotgun snap and quick in his all-around game. Tremendous position blocker that seals defenders from the action.
3-4 Brandon Boykin CB 2 4Sr Explosive cornerback that shows a great burst to the ball and solid cover skills.
6th DeAngelo Tyson DT 94 4Sr Hard-working interior lineman that struggles at nose tackle. Offers possibilities as a backup conventional tackle.
6th Tavarres King WR 12 4Jr Underrated receiver with a burst and the ability to stretch the field. Makes a lot of difficult reception is on the field.
6th Bacarri Rambo S 18 4Jr Large safety that looks imposing on the field. Forceful at times yet often looks like he’s going have speed.
6-7 Sanders Commings CB 19 3Jr Large cornerback that shows terrific explosion, suddenness and strength. Offers a lot of upside. Will get looks at safety.
7th Trinton Sturdivant T 77 5Sr Quick, somewhat athletic left tackle that must improve his blocking balance. Injured a knee and will be on the sidelines in 2011.
7th Abry Jones DE 93 3Jr Stout defensive end that shows flashes.
7-FA Aron White TE 81 5Sr Well sized blocking tight end that could be third man on the depth chart in the NFL.
FA Cornelius Washington DE 83 4Jr Coming off a disappointing campaign after we rated him highly off his 2009 performance. Out of position at defensive end in UGA’s 34 alignment.
FA Bruce Figgins TE 89 5Sr Rarely used tight end that gives effort blocking.
FA Justin Anderson T 79 4Sr
