#1 WR Bernard Reedy
Halftime Thoughts: Not involved with the offense much, yet. Exploded for huge gain on a punt return.
#2 QB Terrance Owens
Halftime Thoughts: Hitting his running back, Fluellen, more than anybody. Always throwing on the run. His feet are rarely set when he makes the throw. Could use his mobility more than he has in the first half.
#11 CB Cheatham Norrils*
Halftime Thoughts: Big bodied cornerback. Not afraid to come up and tackle. Has not been tested much early.
#15 DE Jayrone Elliott
Halftime Thoughts: Pass rushing specialist. Standing up, he gets up field hard and fast in passing situations. Beat Mizzou LT Justin Britt for a big sack on 3rd and long. Impressed with Elliott, so far.
#21 SS Ross Madison
Halftime Thoughts: Has been picked on early in this game by Franklin and Washington. Solid tackler after the catch, though.
#22 RB David Fluellen
Halftime Thoughts: Excellent in open field, soft hands and very good after the catch. He hasn’t picked up many yards at all rushing the ball, though.
#67 C Zac Kerin
Halftime Thoughts: His game is all about leverage. He gets under his man and pushes them out of the hole. Could anchor better in pass pro.
#1 QB James Franklin
Halftime Thoughts: Performance isn’t going as well as last week vs Murray State. Has a couple overthrows and an ugly interception. But, he has flashed some good zip, accuracy and anticipation. Ends the half with a nice series, capped it off with a beautiful fade to DGB for the score.
#6 OW Marcus Murphy*
Halftime Thoughts: Not really involved, fielded 2 grounders on punt returns. One of which was nearly a disaster, needs to get away from it. Also brought a kickoff out of the end zone when he was 6 yards deep. Didn’t make it back to the 20.
#20 RB Henry Josey*
Halftime Thoughts: Not much going on with Josey in the first half, besides a goal line TD.
#31 CB EJ Gaines
Halftime Thoughts: Not much action coming his way. Tipped ball into air to end first half scoring threat.
#47 DE Kony Ealy*
Halftime Thoughts: Getting decent pressure from different techniques on the line. Toledo gets rid of the ball quickly.
#48 LB Andrew Wilson
Halftime Thoughts: Made a couple huge defensive plays. One on third and long, the other on the goal line.
#52 DE Michael Sam
Halftime Thoughts: Not much to report here.
#56 DE Shane Ray
Halftime Thoughts: Using his speed to get upfield on the left tackle. QB is stepping up to where he vacated. Did get good pressure on a few snaps.
#68 LT Justin Britt
Halftime Thoughts: Having a good half, minus a sack on 3rd and long. He is impressing with his footwork and the timing of his punches. Most plays he is erasing the rusher.
