One man to watch is wide receiver Emory Blake of Auburn. Emery has a big body and was a favorite of Cam Newton two years ago. Blake has since gone into obscurity because of Auburn's poor play, but he's shown up this week with great practices and could move up the board with a good game on Saturday.

The Miami Hurricanes' Brandon McGee also has had a nice week at corner. The youth was a big name coming into the year but saw his amount of critics rise with uneven play. This week has been a good one for him, and Saturday will now loom large.
