Young Guns: NFL Rising Stars – NFC

As the NFL season approaches the halfway point, young players around the league are making their mark.

At quarterback, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft – St. Louis’ Sam Bradford – seized the starting job in training camp and hasn’t looked back.  Running back Jahvid Best, a first-round pick (No. 30) by Detroit, leads all rookies with 534 scrimmage yards.  Tampa Bay’s Mike Williams, the team’s fourth-round selection (No. 101), tops rookie wide receivers with 28 catches and 365 yards in addition to his three touchdown catches.  And Dallas’ Dez Bryant, also a first-rounder (No. 24), is tied with Best among NFL rookies with five total touchdowns, including a three-TD performance this past Monday night against the Giants.

Defensively, safety Earl Thomas (first round, No. 14) of Seattle leads NFL rookies with four interceptions (tied for second

Young Guns: NFL Rising Stars – AFC

The future is bright for a cast of young NFL players around the league.

“I think we have a solid group of young prospects that come into the league every year because of the good things that they do in high school and college,” says NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, the former Dallas Cowboys vice president of player personnel.

Last year, the Jets’ Mark Sanchez joined Baltimore’s Joe Flacco as the second rookie quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to an AFC Championship game.  This year, Sanchez has guided the Jets to a 5-1 record.

Sanchez now knows that consistency is key for success in the NFL.

“Last year, I got a perception of this league like, 'Yeah, this is easy,’” says Sanchez.  “And it's not.  I think maybe I started to buy into all the praise a little bit

Scout’s Notebook: Alabama @ Tennessee

SCOUT’S NOTEBOOK: ALABAMA@TENNESSEE

The Volunteers came hard and fast after the quarterback in this matchup. But despite making a couple of big plays early on and generally hanging with the superior team for one half, the Orange and White were just trampled in the third and fourth quarters by an Alabama team that outran, outmuscled and outhustled them, as the 41-10 final score clearly  suggests.

Julio Soars Above the Competition

Playing with a broken hand may be tough for most mere mortals, but not Julio Jones who looked every bit the part of Superman in recording 12 receptions for a school- record 221 receiving yards against the lowly Vols.

Jones gave cornerback Art Evans fits all night with his sheer size and athleticism, not to mention the fact that the 6’4” playmaker’s incredible strength prevented him from being outmuscled on a number of balls thrown his way.

Quarterback Greg McElroy

On Location Q&A: Nate Williams, Washington

SEATTLE, WA – On location interview with Washington Husky senior safety Nate Williams.

You guys are coming off a rough road game. You played better defense earlier in the year, what do you think happened?

I think it was just that we kept shooting ourselves in the foot. I think it was two or three third-and-longs, and we ended up giving them a pass interference to give them a first down. They ended up getting seven points out of that, and then there was a face mask call and they ended up getting points out of that drive as well. We just have a few little things we need to clean up this week and everything will be alright for us.

You get to go up
