When the Georgia Southern Eagles take on the Delaware Blue Hens, the two best players on the field will be GSU DT Brent Russell and Delaware QB Pat Devlin. Russell’s a Walter Camp All-American and Buck Buchanan Award candidate, while Devlin could be drafted as high as the fourth round in the 2010 NFL Draft, according to some scouts.
A Penn State transfer, Devlin is described by Mocking The Draft as having “starting potential in the pros.” The senior has an absurd 20-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio and has completed 70 percent or more of his passes in five of his last six games, several of those against FCS playoff teams.
He can move around a little bit too, with a 34-yard run and at least six other runs of more than ten yards to his credit. The knock against him seems to be that he plays in a dink-and-dunk offense, which I can neither confirm nor deny, though it would make sense considering his interception total.
Still, it’ll be up to the Eagles to rattle a quarterback that’s either unrattleable or plays in the most rattle-proof system possible.
