Devy Stock Watch Week 10

Week 10 of college football has come and gone. We saw multiple players in the coming draft class increase and decrease their stock value. @SportsfanaticMB tells you who they are.

We have figured out a way to make it through 10 weeks of the college football season. While the games have been amazing, we are starting to see Covid trickle more and more into college football. Multiple games have been canceled for this coming week. Things may be getting harder for everyone, but we saw players change their fortunes from the games that were played this past week. Here are my players for Week 10, who affected their devy stock both positively and negatively.

Stock Up

Justin Fields- QB, Ohio State

  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 228
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Justin Fields has been nothing short of amazing so far this season. Wanting to prove he could beat you with his arm, he has almost exclusively worked from inside the pocket. Only using his legs when absolutely necessary. Fields has always been equal for me with Trevor Lawrence, and he is proving it this year, with more touchdowns than incompletions. Fields is set up for a great year, and possible Heisman win.

Michael Penix Jr.- QB, Indiana
  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 218
  • Class- Rs-Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Michael Penix Jr. has been one of the great stories of the B1G Ten season. He has helped lead Indiana to a 3-0 start. He has looked passing the ball, even with an odd delivery. With no real solidified top quarterback option in the 2022 draft, Penix is starting to put his name up in discussion with those top four quarterbacks.

Malik Willis- QB, Liberty
  • Height- 6’1
  • Weight- 195
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Malik Willis was originally committed to Auburn and transferred out last year to Liberty. Having to sit out last year, this is our first look at him as a starter. While he has been impressive throwing the ball, his legs bring another dynamic to his game. He is a true dual-threat quarterback. He’s been accurate in passing the ball and has helped lead Liberty to a 5-0 start. If he continues to play this well, he could work his way into some serious draft capital. I’m not sure what his NFL future looks like, but he is an intriguing prospect and one to watch moving forward.

CJ Verdell- RB, Oregon
  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

CJ Verdell was able to play in his first game this past weekend and reminded us he needs to be in the discussion for one of the better backs in this class. He showed some elusiveness but had some powerful runs on Saturday night. Verdell currently sits in that tier two of running backs, but with a good season could raise his capital. He should get plenty of opportunities, as Oregon is a run-heavy offense.

Jermar Jefferson- RB, Oregon State
  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 217
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Jermar Jefferson has been one of my favorite running backs since his freshman season in 2018. He had a breakout season but struggled with injuries last year, splitting time and just not quite looking the same. Jefferson is a powerful runner with good vision and patience. I love his physical running style and his contact balance. We saw a couple of good runs from him this week, and is much like Verdell, a player who could really increase his draft stock this season.

  • Height- 6’2
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Bateman had his best game of the 2020 season this past Saturday. Bateman has been my WR1 for the past year but definitely wasn’t looking good after his first two weeks. Last week Bateman reminded us just how good he is converting first downs on nine of his ten catches. Bateman has a chance to continue his trend upwards and possibly enter the discussion with top wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

Holding Stock

D’Eriq King- QB, Miami (FL)
  • Height- 5’11
  • Weight- 202
  • Class- RS-Senior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

King has been on fire in 2020. Having to sit out in 2019 due to him transferring from Houston. Outside of the Clemson game, King has been one of the better-looking quarterbacks in 2020. Why am I keeping him as a hold right now? I need to see more. He has been very impressive with his legs. He has also looked better passing the ball but still hasn’t been overly impressive. King has a shot, though, to move up into that top of the tier two group of quarterbacks in the 2020 class, especially if he continues to play the way he has.

Stock Down

Cam’Ron Harris- RB, Miami (FL)
  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Cam’Ron Harris started the year looking like a solid top-five running back coming into the 2021 draft. Harris got a little dinged up and has been battling through the injury all season. On top of that, they have started playing their freshman over him at times as well, and both have looked good. Harris stock has dropped some for me just due to him not being on the field, and when he has been, he hasn’t looked the same. Hopefully, we find out it’s because he’s battling a bad injury and gutting it out for his team. However, with the way he has played, it’s not helped his stock for the draft.
