The Jaguars (3-4) ruled Bouye out Thursday , saying he did not make the overseas trip. The team also will be without backup cornerback Tyler Patmon because of a neck injury. Patmon also remained in Jacksonville.Cornerback D.J. Hayden (toe) made the flight, but he's unlikely to play because of a lingering toe injury. Hayden has missed five consecutive games and hasn't practiced since Sept. 21.Bouye missed practice Thursday after sustaining a calf injury in drills the day before.Without them, the Jaguars will have three undrafted rookie cornerbacks to play alongside All-Pro Jalen Ramsey.Tre' Herndon or fellow undrafted rookie Quenton Meeks is expected to start, and newly signed Dee Delaney will serve as a backup. Meeks started the season on the practice squad, and Delaney was promoted to the 53-man roster Thursday. The team placed linebacker Donald Payne (knee) on IR."I'm definitely looking forward to it," said Meeks, a former starter at Stanford. "It's a chance to fill in for A.J. I'm just trying to fill in and do my job until he gets back healthy and everything like that. I have to step in and do what I have to do. I'm just preparing like I would all the time. I've worked my whole life for this."Meeks is the son of former Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Ron Meeks, who coached in the NFL between 1991 and 2012.Ben 10: Top college players to watch in Week 3 David Montgomery, RB #32, Iowa State (v. Oklahoma, 12:00 PM EST, ABC)Iowa State rarely has players in the headlines but their junior running back has a chance at stardom at the college and pro level. The 511, 216 pound Montgomery is the catalyst for the Cyclone offense and, to be honest, the only threat they have. The stat sheet hasnt been kind to him, but Montgomery has been a much better player than his numbers. If Iowa State wants a shot at upsetting the high powered Oklahoma Sooners, Montgomery will need to play the game of his life and carry Iowa State to a victory. - NatanBlace Brown, CB #18, Troy (v. Nebraska, 12:00 PM EST, BTN)Brown is a pretty well-kept secret in the Draft world at this juncture not so in the Sun Belt, as Brown garnered First Team honors in 2017. So lets break the news.Brown is an NFL sized corner for the Trojans who has reeled in 11 picks in the past two seasons and broken up another 10. That production profile alone will draw eyes. Brown profiles best, in my viewing, as a zone corner whos allowed to overlap and play aggressively downhill with his eyes in the backfield. Nebraskas talented pass-catcher Stanley Morgan Jr. will be Browns biggest tape test this season. - SolakJosh Smith, LB #25, Vanderbilt (v. Notre Dame, 2:30 PM EST, NBC)Vanderbilt is off to an encouraging 2-0 start due in part to their physical defensive play early in the season. Linebacker Josh Smith has led the Commodores defense, contributing as a playmaker against the run and pass, but he will be tested against Notre Dames dangerous offense. Notre Dame has a lot of weapons on the ground and through the air, so Smith will need to be on top of his game and attacking the line of scrimmage. A big game from him will certainly put him on a lot of NFL teams radars. - NatanJustice Hill Youth Derek Barnett Jersey , RB #5, Oklahoma State (v. Boise State, 3:30 PM EST, ESPN)The way I see it, Justice Hill is very nicely positioned for a rise up Draft boards. Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson, a superior prospect, went down for the season last week so south area scouts for teams in need of a running back have more attention to turn to Hill; and Stanford RB Bryce Love has struggled echo the explosion of his 2017 season. Both Hill and Love are undersized speed backs, so any ground Love loses is ground that Hill can gain.That Boise State defense can be tough to run on, however especially for undersized backs. The Broncos are physical and high-motor, so you take a lot of hits. Hill should athletically outclass them on a few explosive runs, however, if he keeps his noise to the grindstone. Im excited for this one.- SolakDontavius Russell, DT #95, Auburn (v. LSU, 3:30 PM EST, CBS)Arguably the biggest game of the weekend is the SEC showdown between Auburn and LSU. LSU has been rolling on offense with their breakout running back Nick Brossette (who deserves draft buzz as well), so it will be up to the Auburn defense to shut down LSUs run game. Dontavius Russell and his 63, 320 pound frame have been starring for Auburns defense this season. He has been a problem against the run especially and his expertise will be on full display against LSU on Saturday. - NatanNathan Rourke, QB #12, Ohio (v. Virginia, 4:30 PM EST, ESPN)You ever get made to look so stupid that you actually feel it in your bones? I spent a whole offseason heck, starting at the end of last season hyping up Nathan Rourke, a gunslinger from Ohio that I thought had an NFL future. And against FCS Howard, he was benched after a 2-8, 44 yard start. Woof.Rourke will start again for the Bobcats, but on a much bigger stage against an ACC opponent on the road. Look for a bounce-back performance from a potential riser.
(I, of course, will boldly proclaim that I never once doubted.) - SolakGreg Little, OT #74, Ole Miss (v. Alabama Color Rush Destiny Vaeao Jersey , 7:00 PM EST, ESPN)There are very few ways to beat Alabama, but beating them in the trenches would be the first step. Thats why Greg Little will be under the microscope against the Tide. Little is widely regarded as one of the top offensive line prospects in the country. The tackle will have his hands full with an always-talented Alabama defense. A strong game from Little wont guarantee a win for the Rebels, but it would give them a huge boost. - Natan Innis Gaines, S #6, TCU (v. Ohio State, 8:00 PM EST, ABC)Year to year, TCU has well-coached defensive backs and this season is no different. Innis Gaines stands out at 62 and 205 pounds at the safety position. On top of that, he is a fundamentally sound and physical presence at the back end of the Horned Frogs defense. His competence will be needed against Ohio State and their multiple offense. Gaines can put himself on the map by making big plays and keeping TCU in the game against a legit title contender. - NatanChuma Edoga, OT #70, USC (v. Texas, 8:00 PM EST, FOX)Dealing with a nagging injury against the Cardinal last week, Edoga impressed in only his limited snaps. And again a stomach bug limited his practice time this week, but Edoga should be good to boogie against the Longhorns this weekend.Edoga has great athleticism at right tackle and looks to have improved his technique this offseason. The Pac-12 isnt known for its high-octane EDGE rushers, so Edogas stiffest test may be Breckyn Hager, the technically sound OLB for Texas. Edoga has a big athletic advantage that he should lean on early in reps to win out. - SolakParker Baldwin, S #33, San Diego State (v. Arizona State, 10:30 PM EST, CBS)Parker Baldwin was a name I had heard whispers about here and there but nothing conclusive. Then, the Stanford opener 7 tackles, including 1 for loss, and a generally disruptive presence on a defense that held RB Bryce Love to a 29-yard outing. Baldwin was everywhere. My interest is piqued.Baldwin was an uber-disruptive pass defender in 2016, but he fell off in that regard in 2017. In his AZTEC role in the Aztec defense (super original, guys), his responsibilities translate to that of a box safety who rocks man coverage reps in the NFL. I need to see that show up when Baldwins in the slot against the Sun Devils powerful offense. - Solak
