One of the biggest names on the team is wide receiver Keenan Davis out of Iowa. Davis had 47 catches and 571 receiving yards in 2012, making some people take notice of the Big Ten star. Many say Davis has been the offensive standout this week in Florida.

Another player to look for is linebacker Keith Pough of Howard. By many accounts, Pough has been the best linebacker on the field in a few of the practices. Playing at a small school can hurt your stock, but Pough has a chance to make a nice impression on scouts.

Notre Dame safety Zeke Motta has also been turning heads. Motta was terrific for the Fighting Irish this season and his play has carried over this week. We could see a bump in his draft stock with a nice performance today.
