The Outback Bowl is going to provide an underrated prospect in Iowa’s B.J. Lowery a chance to run some heads. LSU’s talented receiving duo of Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry are early round prospect who will make things tough on Lowery. The outcome of this matchup could go a long way in determining the winner of the game.

Odell Beckham Jr/WR/LSU: Odell Beckham Jr is a playmaker who makes an impact all over the field. He has the speed to stretch the field, route running to work the intermediate routes and shiftiness to pick up yards after the catch. However, his reliable hands might be the most underrated part of his game.  Beckham consistently plucks the ball away from his frame while also showing a willingness to attack the ball at its highest point. This is why Beckham should be considered a well-rounded player and not just a speed receiver. Early 2nd Round

La’el Collins/OL/LSU: It’ll be interesting to see what position teams project La’el Collins playing at the next level. This past year he showed that he has the athleticism to play left tackle, but he showed in previous years that he is capable of being a dominant interior player.  While Collins held his own at left tackle, there were times where he struggled protecting the edge. Quicker pass rushers tend to give him problems—especially when Collins doesn’t quickly get into his kick slide. He shows potential at left tackle but will need time to become a more consistent player. This is why some teams may want to move inside to guard where he can have an immediate impact. 2nd Round

Jarvis Landry/WR/LSU: It could be argued that Jarvis Landry has the best hands in this year’s draft class. He routinely made highlight-reel catches this year for LSU. What’s interesting is that his body control might be more important than his hands. Landry has the ability to adjust to poorly thrown balls and still come down with the catch. He bailed out Zach Mettenberger more than a few times by making catches on balls thrown behind him. It’s also important to note that Landry shows good overall speed which makes him a vertical threat. 2nd Round

Brandon Scherff/T/Iowa: Brandon Scherff has said that he plans to return to school but I kept him on this list until it’s completely official. Scherff is a powerful offensive lineman who has a nasty streak that helps him generate an excellent push in the run game. Scherff has quick feet that help him protect the edge, but overall he’s a limited mover. The issues arise when Scherff is asked to change direction or react to a counter move. He has a tendency to raise his pad level when he knows he’s against a speed rusher. This is why Scherff might have to bump inside to guard. However, he features the skill set needed to develop into an elite interior player at the next level. 2nd Round

Ego Ferguson/DT/ LSU: Ego Ferguson is a big-bodied defensive tackle prospect who excels at clogging the middle. He’s a two-gap player who stuffs the run and occupies blockers. Ferguson isn’t an explosive athlete but flashes the ability to make plays away from his frame.  His draft position may be limited to middle rounds because he’s mainly a two-down player at this point in his development. This is someone who projects as a nose tackle in either a 3-4 or 4-3 attack. If he can surprise some people at the combine it would absolutely help his stock. 3rd Round

B.J. Lowery/DT/Iowa: B.J. Lowery is along and fluid cornerback prospect. I love his ability to stick with a receiver, change direction and limit separation. He’s one of those guys who can play man coverage while limiting both the long ball and short routes. Lowery also does a good job in zone coverage because he’s committed to keeping his pads down and can quickly break on the ball. He shows effort against the run and is a reliable tackler. This is a very underrated player. 3rd Round

Anthony Johnson/DT/LSU: Anthony Johnson’s lack of consistency is a real concern for me and is why I have him so low on my rankings. He flashes the potential to be a real difference maker but disappears too often to be considered that type of prospect.  When at the top of his game, Johnson can penetrate the pocket and hold up against the run. He’s a solid athlete capable of quickly getting off the ball and making plays away from his frame. The two main concerns that impact his play is his tendency to raise his pad level and limited hand usage.  A defensive tackle is going to have a hard time finding success in the NFL if he plays too high and doesn’t fight for inside hand placement. 3rd Round

Zach Mettenberger/QB/LSU: The knee injury that ended Zach Mettenberger’s season is also going to have a negative impact on his draft position. He really needed to have a shot to compete at the Senior Bowl and individual works. This is because there are still plenty of question marks surrounding Mettenberger’s upside.  He’s a solid athlete who features the size and arm strength evaluators look for in a quarterback prospect. His improvement from year to year and game to game is also a major positive. However, Mettenberger never showed that he was capable of putting a team on his shoulders and carrying them to victory.  There’s plenty of upside here, but it’s tough to say he’s ready to make an impact early in his career.
