Which College Players Are Future Vikings? Week Two Review and Week 3 Primer

Two weeks into the college football season.

There were some players that continued to shine and some others that stepped up.

I am going to list just a few that I like as future Vikings and then preview week 3.

Brock Osweiler JR 6-7 240 4.83 has passed for 43 of 58 for 615 yards and 5 TDs and 1 INTs

Linebackers
Luke Kuechly JR 6-2 237 4.79 has 21 solo and 14 assisted tackles and 1 interception
Don'ta Hightower rJR 6-4 260 4.74 has 6 solo and 5 assisted tackles
Vontaze Burfict JR 6-3 250 4.67 has 8 solo and 0 assisted tackles with 4 sacks

Emmanuel Acho SR 6-2 245 4.79 has 6 solo and 15 assisted tackles

Safeties
Matt Daniels SR 6-0 210 4.53 has 11 solo and 11 assisted tackles and 6 passes defended
Markelle Martin SR 6-1 198 4.47 has 16 solo and 0 assisted tackles and 4 passes defended and 1 forced fumble

Cornerbacks
Dre Kirkpatrick JR 6-2 192 4.49 has 2 solo and 0 assisted tackles and 4 passes defended and 2 forced fumbles
Desmond Trufant JR 6-0 185 4.49 has 12 solo and 3 assisted tackles and 2 interceptions and 1 passes defended and 1 forced fumble

I still like these offensive linemen.

Matt Kalil rJR 6-6 295 5.05
Riley Reiff rJR 6-6 300 4.94

Levy Adcock SR 6-5 322 5.23

I like Nate Potter too.  I need to watch Jonathan Martin Stanford, Andrew Datko FSU, and Mike Adams Ohio St.  Also Zebrie Sanders FSU, and Tony Bergstorm Utah are worth watching.

I watched Penn St vs Alabama and I really like Don'ta Hightower LB & Mark Barron SS from Alabama and Devon Still DT from Penn St.  Still looks like an animal and Alabama had a hard time blocking him one on one.  He was getting doubled quite often.

Devon Still rSR DT 6-4 310 5.06                           http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2uZ-b0GgEQ
