Miami NFL Prospects to Watch:
DE Allen Bailey – The 6’4” 285 lb defensive end has 13 sacks and 21 TFL in his two years as a starter. He could be a top 15 pick in the draft this year.
OT Orlando Franklin – The 6’7” 312 lbs lineman was considered one of the best guards in the country last year. Franklin will be making the move to left tackle this year, a position he is probably better suited to play.
CB Brandon Harris – Harris is only a junior but was second in the nation last year with 15 pass break-ups. The “U” has a tradition of putting some good corners in the NFL, and Harris should be no different.
WR Leonard Hankerson – Hankerson is a big physical receiver that can make plays. He had 6 TDs and averaged 17.8 yards per catch last year.
Pittsburgh NFL Prospects to Watch:
WR Jon Baldwin – Unbelievable jumping and playmaking ability... oh and he is 6’5” 225 lbs:
OT Jason Pinkston – Has 28 career starts at left tackle and has paved the way for some good running backs.
DE Jabaal Sheard – With the injury to Pittsburgh's top defensive end prospect Greg Romeus, they need Sheard to step up and make plays.
Overview: The Hurricanes really need Jacoby Harris to step it up and have a good game. He has struggled in big games in his career; he threw 4 picks in the loss to Ohio State earlier this year. This will be another tough road test for Miami. Pittsburgh lost their season opener to a tough Utah team, but they have a chance to jump back into theTop 25 rankings with a win over Miami.
The Pick: Miami -3.5, I think Miami’s defense will step up and make some plays and they will pull out a close win.
