Texas vs. Oklahoma

Dear Cincinnati Bengals fans, let me introduce you to DeMarvion Overshown. The Longhorns linebacker started his career at defensive back.

Despite his increased size and weight, he looks every bit as fast as a defensive back.

Logan Wilson has been everything I expected him to be coming out of Wyoming and he is now coming into his own. Now imagine him with a running mate capable of matching his play. That is what you may witness when watching Overshown.

Mel Kiper Jr. has Overshown as his fourth-best linebacker prospect.

If you are a PFF disciple, Overshown could be a steal. As of now, he is unshown on PFF’s top 100 list. He is not even amongst the top seven linebackers. That will change during the draft season.

Luckily, you can watch him for yourself on Saturday. You can decide if you would like to see him in stripes.

When the Sooners are on defense, the player you should focus on is linebacker, defensive end Nik Bonnito. He started on PFF’s preseason list at 20th overall. Today, he stands at 28th. As for Mel Kiper is concerned, Bonnito is his fourth-ranked outside linebacker. CBS has him ranked nicely at 69th.

He is a great candidate for defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo’s 3-4, 5-2 defense that uses defensive linemen at standup edge defenders.

Bonnito has 15 career sacks and counting. He also has 23.5 career tackle for loss. Expect those numbers to rise by the end of this season.

Other Longhorns to watch:

  • Tvondre Sweat (DT)
  • Cameron Dicker (K/P): Specialists deserve love too.
  • Justin Mader (LS): Specialists deserve love three.

Other Sooners to scout:

  • Spencer Rattler (QB): Heir apparent to Joe Burrow? (kidding people)
  • Jason Haselwood (WR)
  • Kennedy Brooks (RB)
  • Brayden Willis (TE): Blocking TE, H-Back who can be a receiving threat
  • Jeremiah Hall (TE): Blocking TE, H-Back. Also not averse to catching passes
  • Marquis Hayes (G)
  • Wanya Morris (T/G)
  • Isaiah Thomas (DE/DT): Reminds me of Cam Sample
  • Perrion Winfrey (DT): Third best DT prospect according to Kiper Jr.
