Week 7 in the college season saw a number of teams fall from the ranks of the unbeaten. It was also a weekend where several highly regarded NFL prospects turned in breakout performances and helped lead their teams to victory. Here are the nine top performers from Saturday's games and notes on a prospect previously mentioned as a riser.
SMU signal caller J.J. McDermott, a Week 5 riser, continues to impress NFL scouts. On Saturday, he completed 66 percent of his throws for 358 yards against Central Florida during the Mustangs' victory. Several senior quarterbacks who were highly rated have been underperforming this season, and as a result McDermott continues to move up draft boards.
