Devy Stock Watch Week 11

We are approaching the end of the college football season. @SportsfanaticMB let’s who know who’s stock is moving from week 11.

Javonte Williams (UNC Athletics)

We are getting closer and closer to the end of the college season, and it’s been a fun and interesting ride so far. As the season continues to move forward, we will likely continue to see some games canceled or postponed. It’s been fun to watch these players performing both good and bad on the season. Week 10 saw multiple games in multiple conferences moved around because of Covid. Let’s take a look at who helped and hurt their stock in Week 10.

Stock Up

Desmond Ridder- QB, Cincinnati
  • Height- 6’4
  • Weight- 215
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Desmond Ridder continues his rise while continuing to move Cincinnati toward a possible playoff berth. Ridder continues to impress with his legs, and he is getting a lot of comps to Colin Kaepernick. While I don’t think he’s the runner Kaep was, he has a better arm. Ridder’s touch passing downfield is his biggest issue. While I don’t think he’s a day two pick, I do think he’s moving himself up, draft boards.

Grant Gunnell- QB, Arizona
  • Height-6’6
  • Weight- 228
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Grant Gunnell was a quarterback I mentioned earlier in the year primed for a breakout season. He came in last year and played as a true freshman due to an injury and looked very good. Well, it looked like he hasn’t missed a beat after a top performance this past week against USC. Including showing off his cannon on a 75-yard touchdown pass. Gunnell is currently in that second tier of quarterbacks in the 2022 class but is working his way up to being in the conversation with that top tier.

Javonte Williams- RB, UNC
  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 220
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Well, if you guys listen to the Devy Debate podcast I co-host or follow me on Twitter, you know just how much I’ve come to like this kid. Williams was a good player last year, but I feel we may have overlooked him because he was in a timeshare with Michael Carter. While he is still in a timeshare this year, he’s separating himself when he gets the ball with his play. Williams has been the highest and quickest riser of the season. Going from unranked earlier in the year up to RB3 for me in the 2021 class. Williams can do it all, is an explosive runner with enough elusiveness to create space and soft hands. His ability to immediately get upfield when he catches the ball is truly fun to watch. The most interesting stat for Williams for me is he leads college football with 62 avoided tackles. That is 14 more than the next best running back, which is Breece Hall, who also has 46 more carries than Williams.

Khalil Herbert- RB, Virginia Tech
  • Height- 5’9
  • Weight- 205
  • Class- Rs-Senior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Khalil “Juice” Herbert is quickly becoming one of my favorite underrated running backs in this class. Herbert seems to be quietly having one of the better years for running backs in college. Herbert brings a little bit of everything to his game and is an all-around back. If he continues to play the way he has been, he should work his way up into some serious draft capital. Check out this thread on his stats so far this season.

Kadarius Toney- WR, Florida
  • Height- 6’0
  • Weight- 193
  • Class- Senior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Kadarius Toney was not a wide receiver many thought they would be paying much attention to coming into 2020. Well, he is quickly changing people’s minds with his play. Toney is what you would call an “offensive weapon.” He can be used in the receiving game and as a rusher. The most receptions he had coming into this season was 25 in his sophomore year. He’s already passed that this season and is being used as the deep threat for Florida. He’s rising up draft boards with his play, and his speed makes him an even more intriguing prospect.

Holding Stock

Kedon Slovis- RB, USC
  • Height- 6’2
  • Weight- 200
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Kedon Slovis had a good freshman year that put him on the map as a quarterback to watch for the 2022 season. Having come in for an injured JT Daniels, Slovis played so well it forced Daniels to transfer out. While Slovis hasn’t played great to start this season, he’s continued to make NFL throws in his games. He has also continued to help USC win. Slovis has weapons around him and is in one of the more explosive offenses in college football. Some are starting to worry about Slovis because, with all the talent around him. He hasn’t quite looked like what we had hoped for. I’m holding my shares of Slovis because I think the weirdness of 2020 has affected him some, and even in the two games where he hasn’t played great, he’s still put up great stats. Slovis, I expect, will continue to improve as the season moves forward.

Stock Down

Joe Milton- QB, Michigan
  • Height-6’5
  • Weight- 243
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Joe Milton was a player after week one of the B1G Ten season many were talking about. He played well and made many think maybe Michigan was back and had found a quarterback. Unfortunately, that’s the only good game we’ve seen out of Milton. Milton has an incredible arm but just looks lost at times on the field. My guess would be it’s more coaching than his skill. As of now, it looks like he is trending back down these ranks for the 2021 class.
