Air Force

Best prospect: #8 CB Reggie Rembert, 5-7 ½, 185 pounds, 4.46 seconds, Senior – In the last two seasons, Rembert has earned a first-team All-Mountain West Conference honors, on top of honorable mention designation as a sophomore. He’s been one of the better defensive players in the conference over his four seasons, with nine interceptions, 153 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 16 passes broken up and five fumble recoveries. At various times he also handled punt and kickoff returns.

Georgia Tech

Best prospect: #18 RB Anthony Allen, 6-0, 230 pounds, 4.58 seconds, Redshirt-Senior – Allen began his college career at Louisville, but after two seasons left the Cardinals and transferred to Tech. After sitting out the 2008 season, he’s had a big impact on the Yellow Jackets and their offense over the last two seasons. This year, he ran for 1,225 yards on 217 carries over 12 games and ranks among the most productive backs in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He’s a downhill type runner, who has been successful but does not have a lot of wear and tear on him. Allen has never been used much as a receiver, catching eight passes for 200 yards and two TDs in the last two seasons.

Best underclassmen prospect: #37 FS Jerrard Tarrant, 5-11¾,205 pounds, 4.53 seconds, Redshirt-Junior – Outstanding athlete who has contributed on defense and special teams for Tech, including two punt return touchdowns last season and three TDs on the defense side. The Georgia native has five interceptions with two returns for TD, 113 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, eight passes broken up, four forced fumbles and a recovered fumble. He’s averaged 10 yards on punt returns with two touchdowns.

Player that might interest Chiefs: #2 CB Mario Butler, 6-0, 184 pounds, 4.49 seconds, Senior – Durable defender who has played 51 games for Tech and has started the last 38 games on the corner. This year he found the end zone when he returned an interception 85 yards for a touchdown against Duke. Overall, he’s 135 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, four interceptions and 12 passes broken up.

Other potential draft choices: #36 FB Lucas Cox, 5-11¾, 245 pounds, Redshirt-Senior (he’s the younger brother of Chiefs FB Mike Cox); #79 C Sean Bedford, 6-1, 280 pounds, 5.23 seconds, Redshirt-Senior; #9 QB/RB Joshua Nesbitt, 6-0¾, 217 pounds, 4.68 seconds, Senior; #41 OLB Anthony Egbuniwe, 6-4¼, 248 pounds, 4.74 seconds, Redshirt-Senior.
