Wyoming's Devin Moore at 5'9 195 pounds is not the biggest running backs in college football but posses great vision, hands, explosiveness. A true homerun threat every time he touches the ball, has a great slide or jump step and can reach top speed in only a few steps.

Moore has played in 33 games for Wyoming, while carrying the rock 304 times for 1,748 yards with eight touchdowns, shows great hands with 51 receptions for 337 yards and one score. has returned kicks as well and taken one the distance.

Great speed as well with a forty time of 4.38.

Should the Michael Bennett experiment not work or Dunn show his true age the team might be looking for a speed back to complement Earnest Graham and Carnell Williams should Williams be able to return to some kind of football form.

Just a player to keep an eye on this coming college football season

That's nice Yuc, thanks.  I struggle with recording games on Saturday as I'm not sure who to focus on.  YO Scott, Jim, and Charlie....There's a new column for you college football junkies.  The game of the week from a Buccaneers Scouting perspective?  I'd love to be able to tape meaningful games with players that maybe drafted by the Bucs vs just picking the big, FSU, UF, SEC, or ACC thriller of the week...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

ACC thriller of the week...
Is there such a thing?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Watch out for Noel Devine. He is a beast.

Devine has exceptional skills for his size but he might go down as someone to watch out for off-field if he doesn't steer clear of bad decisions because of the stomping he put on that guy at the bar that he wasn't supposed to be at.

In my opinion, Moreno will be one of the top 5 RB's in college this year..I've seen him play in high school and heard of his work ethic in college and of course saw him play and he looks like someone who could be a great in the NFL

Sure Noel Devine is fast... But do you think he will come out as a sophmore? And i seriously doubt he will make any impact in the NFL except special team.

Unless he bulk up to the size Maurice Jones Drew is.

I think Arian Foster is very underrated by many. He's a little better known, but people don't seem to project him well into the league. I think he's Earnest Graham with a high ceiling. Very big guy who is agile and a great receiver.

So aside from the highly publicized backs eligible, I've got my eye on Cedric Peerman, Keegan Herring, Jeremiah Johnson, and Anthony Dixon though I doubt he comes out.

How many people are actually going to see Wyoming play (besides me, of course)? The only game likely to be televised on a national level is Tennessee.

Some times it's hard to pick just one.

DYK, we have a college football forum... http://www.pewterreport.com/forum/index.php?board=5.0
