6 College Football Thoughts For Week 2

1. Marcus Mariota is fast. That is my analysis, but what he could mean to the NFL is very interesting. He's not a great passer, but he's good. If Chip Kelly is really bringing his offense to the professional level, does Mariota have first round value for him, yet only mid round value for another team (I still don't think he would draft him in the first, but he could be that kind of impact player for his team)? Kelly stayed away from his players in his first draft, but it will be interesting to see how he builds his team for the future.

2. I was never that big of a fan of Aaron Murray, but he was very impressive. He did a great job of leading his receivers and throwing strikes down the field.

3. Clowney is amazing. It doesn't matter that it isn't showing up on a stat sheet, because everyone is designing a game plan around minimizing Clowney's impact.

4. Devin Gardner should not be underestimated as an NFL prospect. He's got a good arm, is mobile, but still needs to refine his decision making. Still, there's stuff to work with, and I would rather develop him than Logan Thomas.

5. I still have a huge crush on Kyle Van Noy. He is just always around the ball and can make plays in the running game and affects the passing game both with pass rushing and in coverage. I wish I had a gif of the spin move he put on Texas's left tackle during the third series on third down. It was a thing of beauty, and it made me emit a noise that sounded a little too much like me having an orgasm. Also, despite not being a big linebacker, he was able to bull rush lineman and collapse the pocket.

6. Marqise Lee can't catch anything this year, not even punts. That was like the only play I watched, so those are my only thoughts on Lee.
