Sometimes, there are players who just seem to have a nose for the football. They stand out on film, consistently involved in every single play, never making the wrong first step. That’s Jordan Kunasyzk in a nutshell. And as he leaves the Golden Bears behind to begin his journey at the next level, it is easy to see why the linebacker has been the foundation around which Cal’s defense was built.
Listed at 6 feet 3 and 235 pounds, Kunaszyk knows how to get the most out of his body on every play. While he can deliver punishing hits in the run game, he also has the ability to drop back and lock down his zone in the middle of the field, serving as a nightmare for quarterbacks who try to get passes past his frame.
Take for his instance his interception against Oregon in 2017. He correctly read the quarterback’s eyes, and even though the pass was a little high, he still managed to snag it and return it for 53 yards. That would just be the start for what looked to be a promising junior season.
But even as injuries limited him to just eight games, Kunaszyk made sure his impact was felt not just by opposing players but also by his teammates. He notched three consecutive games of double-digit tackles and had perhaps his finest effort against Washington State.
The Cougars were ranked eighth nationally coming into the game, but they simply could not account for No. 59. He found himself unblocked on delayed blitzes to jar the ball loose, beat linemen to get into the backfield, and even managed to pick off a tipped ball just before it hit the ground. His standout efforts were reflected in the box score, where he racked up 11 tackles, 2.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble as Cal dominated Washington State.
With now two years at Cal under his belt, Kunaszyk really came into his own during his senior season. He started off strong and dependable in the first few games, but it was actually during a rough stretch for the Golden Bears that Kunasyzk proved his worth.
While some players might lose heart in defeat, the senior never quit, forcing a fumble against both Oregon and Arizona before unleashing one of the most impressive performances by a linebacker this season against UCLA. Despite losing 37-7, Kunasyzk remained a thorn in the Bruins side, posting an incredible 22 total tackles (including 14 solo) as well as a forced fumble for the third straight game. His efforts continued to stymie offenses, and it culminated in a bowl performance where he registered 14 total tackles and an interception against TCU.
From his downhill speed, play recognition, and pass coverage skills, Kunasyzk is the complete package.

Looks can be deceiving, and just taking a single glance at Xavier Ubosi’s stat line might leave most college football fans fooled. After finishing the 2018 season with an average of 23.9 yards per catch, one might imagine Ubosi as a one-dimensional speedster on the shorter end of the scale. But just one glance at his tape brings a completely different picture in mind, and by the time anyone, even the defender covering him, has the chance to really look at him, he’s gone.
Ubosi’s path, however, hasn’t always been as easy as running past everyone. Before he made it to the University of Alabama-Birmingham, the wideout played JUCO at Pierce College in Los Angeles. After an impressive showing there, Ubosi received offers to play at several universities, but ultimately chose to join the Blazers. As a reminder, this was the same UAB program which had shut down its football program for two years, only to re-emerge in 2017, the same year Ubosi arrived on campus.
It took some time for the receiver to get acclimated to the offense, but he showed his explosive play potential in a game against Florida where he caught a single pass and took it 74 yards to the end zone.
Therein lies the problem for most defenses — Ubosi has incredible top-end speed and flies past defenders, but he also brings an imposing 6-foot-3 frame onto the field as well. Once he started getting settled into the offense, you could almost see the dilemma defensive coordinators had on their hands trying to find the right way to cover him. When they couldn’t, Ubosi would tear up the football field as he did against the Rice Owls earlier this year.
He had a breakout game that day, catching four passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns, including a beauty of a reception down the right sideline. His performance against Texas A&M proved he wasn’t just a one-trick pony, as he caught six passes for 81 yards. Even in a game where the defense bracketed him to take away the deep ball, Ubosi still had an impact in the passing game.
But Ubosi’s finest achievement came in his final collegiate game, and what a way to close out a career it was. On the opening play from scrimmage, Ubosi hauled in a pass after blowing past the defender, and then outraced everyone into the end zone for a 75-yard score. Neither he, nor the team, looked back after that point.
As No. 7 caught passes on the right and left sideline for scores, he high-stepped it into the end zone while making it all look so easy. His final numbers were an eye-popping seven catches for 227 yards and three scores, setting single-game career-highs in each category. Ubosi’s game sealed the victory for UAB, leading it to its first ever bowl win.
Xavier Ubosi might not have had the career statistics of a four-year starter, but in that one game, he proved he could run with, and probably past, the best of them.

When making the transition from high school to college, it makes sense that some positions take longer to adapt to the physicality and size of the collegiate level. Defensive line especially comes to mind, but Ryan Bee bucked the trend for Marshall and contributed almost immediately as a freshman.
After getting his feet wet in the 2015 season for the first two weeks, he exploded onto the scene against Old Dominion. Back then, No. 91 mostly played defensive end, and he wreaked havoc in the Monarchs backfield, logging 12 total tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks to go with a forced fumble. While he was still one of the youngest players on the field, he played like a veteran, utilizing every inch of his 6-foot-7 frame along with his array of moves to disengage from blocks.
That early success must have given Bee confidence, as he continued to put in impressive performances each week and finished his freshman campaign with 8.5 tackles for loss and four sacks, including one of each against Connecticut in his first bowl game. This upward trajectory only continued in his sophomore year, where he came into his own by combining his pass-rushing ability with his length, making him nearly unblockable at times.
The biggest change came during his junior year — and this might be the most indicative of Bee’s knowledge of the game and sheer physical talent. After spending his first two years as an edge rusher and bringing value from the end, he moved to playing primarily as an interior defensive linemen. While much of the stats glory seems to go to the edge rushers, Bee managed to shine just as bright from his new spot inside, using his length to overwhelm centers and guards. Bee ended up notching 7.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks during his junior campaign.
Though senior years are supposed to be the culmination of every player’s career, Bee suffered a setback early on when he was forced to miss the first few games due to injury and played on a limited snap count afterwards. But in his first game back with regular action, Bee didn’t take long to get going as he registered two sacks and a forced fumble against Western Kentucky and continued that torrid pace from there.
Now, all those years of honing his defensive line techniques were perfectly mastered with his frame. This showed up not just in the stat line but on the field, where even when he couldn’t get to the quarterback, he was able to get his hands up to redirect passes. That aspect of his play was on display in his final game, when Bee registered three tackles and a pass deflection in victory against South Florida.
With the positional flexibility to excel anywhere on the defensive line, the question is not where will Bee slot in, but how much disruption can he cause while playing there. If his collegiate career is anything to go by, the answer will likely cause offensive linemen fits.

To paraphrase an oft-spoken quote, with great talent comes great responsibility. And when Jake Browning stepped onto the campus of the University of Washington, there was almost too much responsibility placed on his shoulders.
Browning became the first true freshman to start a season opener for UW and in 13 starts, the young signal caller performed admirably. The numbers were strong for an early start, with almost 3,000 yards through the air and more touchdowns than interceptions; but even as Browning led the Huskies to a bowl game, there was a hint of something on the horizon as to what he could bring to the team.
The college football world didn’t have to wait long, as the very next year, Browning showed just why the coaching staff had put so much trust in him from the start. Now with a year of experience under his belt, Browning was able to display a mastery of the Huskies offense, continually finding the right targets from a variety of launch angles and able to almost seamlessly throw to every spot on the field.
His ability to take command of the offense brought the Huskies to the College Football Playoff, where they faced off against Alabama in the Peach Bowl. Though they ended up losing to the Tide, the semifinal appearance was the cherry on top for an incredible year where he threw for 43 touchdowns, just 9 interceptions, and contributed four more scores on the ground.
Even after undergoing shoulder surgery following that sophomore campaign, Browning has continued to be a consistent source of offense and leadership for UW. In 2017, Browning delivered one of the finest performances of his collegiate career, bouncing back from a heartbreaking loss to Stanford to throw for a season-high 354 yards and two touchdowns in a thrilling 33-30 victory over Utah.
His play ultimately led the Huskies to the Fiesta Bowl where they lost by a single score to Penn State. And in his final collegiate season, Browning righted the ship for the Huskies after an early loss to Auburn by leading them to the Rose Bowl, marking the first time in 18 years that the Huskies were playing in the “Grandaddy of them all.”
Browning leaves UW as one of the most decorated and statistically dominant quarterbacks in the program’s history, and with his understanding of offensive concepts, pocket presence, footwork, and delivery, there is no question he is ready to step into a pro offense at the next level.

For some players, filling up the stat sheet and getting their names mentioned by the announcers on every play is the goal. Or perhaps it even comes easy to them due to their position. But for the top defensive backs, they do their jobs best when their names are rarely called, only surfacing in key moments to shut down wide receivers in the most important plays of the game. Quarterbacks fear to target them, and so they hardly have the chance to log eye-popping numbers.
Brandon Watson has quietly grinded and honed his craft at Michigan the past four years. And even while playing a healthy amount of snaps on special teams throughout his career, Watson became a fixture and foundational piece for the vaunted Michigan defense.
After contributing in a variety of ways in his first three years, Watson finally began to get regular playing time on defense in 2017, registering several solid pass break-ups and showing that he was more than comfortable in locking down his assignment. What prompted the trust in Watson’s defense may have been his ability to make a name for himself bringing down ball carriers. And given the amount of time he spent on special teams, it hardly comes as a surprise that he was willing to lower his shoulder pads every once in a while. When those experiences all culminated in his final year, Watson became an integral part of the Wolverines.
From the first game, Watson made sure that the nation was on notice of his skills. He intercepted his first pass against Notre Dame that day, returning it 19 yards in a hard-fought match that saw Michigan barely lose. After that lesson, though, Watson and the defense locked down hard, winning their next 10 games.
Although his season-high in tackles was four, Watson was a stalwart whenever the ball came his way, as Pro Football Focus graded him as a 90.0 in run defense, top 10 in the nation through eight games. And when teams did dare throw his way, he made them pay, snagging a pick against Maryland and showing off his speed by taking it 46 yards to the house. Apparently, he loved the end zone so much he decided to find it again, this time coming in Michigan’s rout over Penn State in what was to be a clash of Big Ten titans.
It might have taken a while for Watson to make it to this level, and perhaps many at home don’t recognize his name. But his game has been respected by his peers throughout his career, and if he continues to nail his assignment each and every time, it won’t be long until many more know of his prowess.

Just like how every football game is about how you finish, so too is every player’s career. When Amir Hall was initially recruited out of high school, he could have been discouraged by the lack of initial scholarships. But all he needed was the coaching staff of Bowie State to believe in his abilities. Over the past four years, Hall has repaid their trust by registering one of the most impressive careers by a Bulldog and aims to be the fourth player in the past decade to make the jump from Bowie State to the NFL.
After taking over the starting QB spot midway through his freshman year, Hall has never looked back, developing his game to be as complete a football player as possible. With the physical tools needed to excel at the collegiate level, Hall’s improvement over each aspect of his game was something to see.
Hall led all Division II passers before the playoffs with over 4,000 yards passing and was the only one among that group to break the 4K mark. Consistently, Hall has displayed a knack for understanding coverages, identifying the open receiver pre-snap, and also has a flair for improvising when the defense mixes things up.
Make no mistake, despite his prodigious arm talent and accuracy (completing over 60 percent of his passes nine times this season), Hall can also scramble and take off with the best of them as his long strides allow him to eat up space before defenders can get near him. He rushed for 445 yards and six touchdowns as a senior and was responsible for 38 touchdowns overall.
It should come as no surprise to see Hall’s stock rise in the coming weeks, especially given his body of work. In fact, despite missing two games a year ago, Hall posted 3,519 passing yards, 41 touchdowns and only four interceptions that season, along with eight rushing scores. That and leading the Bulldogs to their first home NCAA Division II playoff match propelled him to being named the 2017 Black College Football Player of the Year.
As the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl approaches, it will be the first time for many to see what HBCU and Division II audiences have long known: that Hall is a supremely talented and hard-working quarterback, determined to finish out his career on a high note. And if he has his way, it won’t be the last time he showcases his skills.

Grant Kraemer, QB, Drake
While the game between Iowa State and Drake wasn’t a game played for a conference championship or bowl eligibility, it had something perhaps even greater at stake: pride. Iowa State wanted to play 12 games this season, and with the previous two commitments falling through, the Cyclones and Drake were able to reach an agreement to play this game just a few weeks prior. The Bulldogs were already eliminated from playoff contention, but they still had intentions of pulling of the upset — and that all started with their quarterback, Grant Kraemer.
Although Drake’s first drive started on its own 7-yard line, Kraemer wasted no time in capitalizing as he rifled a touchdown pass that put the underdogs up, 7-0. Even after the Cyclones managed to wrest away momentum with a pair of touchdowns and an interception, Kraemer looked unphased. No matter what the defense or the inclement weather, threw at the quarterback, he calmly continued to lead the offense. A methodical, 10-play, 83-yard drive eventually finished with a touchdown pass from Kramer with defenders in his face.
After halftime, Drake’s defense forced a fumble, leading to a field goal that cut Iowa State’s lead to 3. Another forced turnover put Drake in position to take the lead and Kraemer seized the opportunity. He found a wide receiver for 23 yards on third down to keep the drive alive, and in the red zone, Kraemer sat in the pocket and let the play develop. Maybe it was trust in his receiver, maybe it was sheer confidence that allowed him to sling a pass into the heart of the secondary for a touchdown. Suddenly, the Bulldogs were up 24-20 in what would be the most unlikely of upsets in recent memory.
Though the offense would not be able to score after that and the Cyclones ultimately pulled away, Grant Kraemer’s performance, completing 20 of his 29 attempts for 221 yards and three touchdowns in awful field conditions, was a worthy one to end his collegiate career. Drake might have entered into the Iowa State stadium as the home team’s third-choice, but Kraemer and the Bulldogs left as valiant opponents.
Reggie Gallaspy II, RB, North Carolina State
One week after carrying the ball a season-high 27 times for 129 yards against in-state rival UNC, Reggie Gallaspy II once again made the most of his many opportunities. This time, he carried it 24 times against East Carolina for a season-high 220 yards and two touchdowns, bringing his total to over 1,000 yards on the season, the first time he has ever hit that mark in his career.
Bobby Okereke, ILB, Stanford
In his final rivalry matchup against California, Bobby Okereke put his stamp on things with 13 total stops, including 7 solo tackles, 0.5 sack and a forced fumble. As a result, the Golden Bears were never able to get into a rhythm, and Stanford cruised to a 23-13 victory.
Wesley Bush, DB, Middle Tennessee
Familiarity breeds contempt, and after two straight weeks of playing against Middle Tennessee, it wouldn’t be a surprise if UAB was sick of seeing Wesley Bush. The senior defensive back has terrorized the Dragons for two weeks straight, the latest effort yielding 10 tackles and a pick for the second game in a row. Though UAB came out victorious, Bush proved he has the range and hitting ability to compete at the next level.
FULL COACHING STAFF ANNOUNCED FOR 2019 NFLPA COLLEGIATE BOWL
Highlighted by Pro Football Hall of Famers and NFL legends, the complete staffs for 2019 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl head coaches Chuck Pagano and Mike Tice were finalized Tuesday.
Featured as the American Team’s defensive coordinator is former All-Pro defensive back Ed Reed, who had great success playing under Pagano at the University of Miami and with the Baltimore Ravens. Leading the American Team offense will be Ted Tollner, who served as an NFL assistant for 15 seasons and worked with NFL quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.
Former NFL star wideout Andre Johnson, who also played under Pagano in college and the NFL, will coach the wide receivers with Super Bowl champion Plaxico Burress. And Hall of Famer Jackie Slater returns to lead the offensive line for the American team.
The National Team staff, led by Tice, includes former Pro Bowl QB Gus Frerotte as the offensive coordinator and former All-Pro linebacker Bryan Cox as the defensive coordinator. Darrell Green, who has previously served as a head and assistant coach at the Collegiate Bowl, will pour his Hall of Fame wisdom into the role of defensive backs coach for the National Team.
The eighth annual postseason all-star game will be played on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium, once again bringing together the top draft-eligible players from colleges and conferences across the country.
