WEEK 1 SIGNINGS DE Steve Brown. JUCO Soph that uses his strength to bull his way into the backfield. Lacks ability to run down plays from the backside but will hold his gaps well. T Michael Upshaw. Overlooked because his small high school ran the wishbone but is an absolute beast opening holes. Shoddy in pass blocking technique but some coaching will change that. DT Davin Holycross. Underwhelming athletically but his big frame (6'6") and combo of strength and blockshedding will get him on the field and clogging the middle. OLB Kevin Mansfield. Everything you want in a MLB only an OLB. If he can put on 3 pounds and get to 225, look for him to make the transition where his lack of speed won't be as evident. CB Kory King. Not a bad athlete but average coverage skills will keep him on the bench for a few years. Reads plays well and could crack the starting lineup as an upperclassman. C Ryan Goddard. Needs work on his footwork, but other than that has great skills for a kid of his ranking. Future starter. CB Chris Griffin. A pure cover corner with 4.38 speed and nice hands. Once he gets on the field, he should produce some turnovers. A- agility and good acceleration could get him some return duty as well. DT Robert Dotson. Can use a wide range of skills to get into the backfield. Possible future All Big-10 performer. P Jeremy Amos. Nice leg....moving on... TE Craig Fuller. An all-around solid player that doesn't excel anywhere but has very few holes as well. Low understanding of run blocking footwork could be a concern in Stanford's offense. LE Henry Thomas. Mauls undersized tackles on his way to disrupting offenses. Look for many sightings of this kid in opposing backfields. C Chad Hunter. One of the best athletes as an offensive lineman you will see. Gets on LB's in a heartbeat and should make ISO's a stable in the Trojan offense for years to come. ATH Martin Paris. 4.34 speed with acceleration and agility to match it. Should be a deadly change of pace back and an outstanding return man for the Trojans. T Tony Carlson. Has the fundamentals down and will contribute as early as the depth chart allows. C David Weber. Solid player that would be served well by a RS and time to develop. Should be a starter by Jr or Sr. K Frank Jackson. #2 kicker in the nation with strong and pretty accurate leg. CB Corey James. Excellent frame (6'3") and speed (4.30). Can jam receivers at the line and combo of heigth and vertical make deep balls his to grab.
