The game between Marshall and West Virginia (2:30 p.m., ESPN) features two of the nations premier pass rushers in the Herd's Vinny Curry and the Mountaineers' Bruce Irvin. Curry and Irvin are fairly similar as prospects. Both are athletic players who can get around the corner in a hurry.
Of the two, Curry projects better to stay in a 4-3 set because he's stronger and longer. He's fast off snap and plays with a high motor. Irvin exploded in his first year at West Virginia with 14 sacks. He's the more athletic of the two and will time better in the offseason.
Curry and Irvin aren't the only two pass rushers to watch in this game. West Virginia senior Julian Miller gets overshadowed by Irvin, but he's good getting off blocks and getting into the backfield. Last season he had 9 sacks and 14 tackles for loss.
Junior West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith showed flashes for NFL ability, but has to continuing developing this season.
In regard to NFL Draft prospects, Marshall has little else after Curry.
