The scouting process for the draft runs primarily from September through mid- April. The athletic testing portion of the evaluation process takes center stage starting in February. However, how NFL draft prospects perform in actual football games is what matters most. Here is a closer look at some of the notable prospects in the Georgia- Missouri contest and their impact on the outcome:NT John Jenkins, Georgia, Senior: The huge nose tackle made his presence felt with 5 tackles, 1 tackle for loss and a quarterback hurry. He was in the middle of a Georgia defense that limited Missouri to 102 rushing yards on 39 attempts (2.6 yards per rush). Georgia’s rushing defense was even more impressive when you take into account that Missouri had a 44-yard run in the 4th quarter. Missouri gained 58 yards on the other 38 rushing attempts (1.5 per carry).Jenkins occupied blockers like a good nose tackle does and did not give ground. His size and power in his lower body enabled him to maintain the line of scrimmage and push it back at times. Jenkins moves well for a man his size and can make some plays outside of his immediate area. Jenkins hustled well and showed the willingness to pursue his target. He needs to do a better job of protecting his legs from cut blocks, but there was a lot to like about how John Jenkins played against Missouri.OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia, Junior: One of the keys to an effective 3-4 defense is to have a playmaking outside linebacker. Jarvis Jones was certainly that against the Tigers. Jones was the star of the game with 9 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 interception, 1 pass broken up and 5 quarterback hurries. It did not matter whether he rushed from the left or right side. Jones’ speed off of the edge was too much for Missouri’s offensive tackles.The Bulldog linebacker also fought off of blocks by aggressively using his hands. He displayed patience when defending the option. His interception late in the game helped Georgia pull away. The Missouri quarterback never saw Jones lurking in the middle of the field, but the Georgia backer was quick to reach up the snatch the pass out of the air. Jones proceeded to put more nails in Missouri’s coffin by forcing a fumble on a sack late in the 4th quarter. Jones was relentless in this game. The 2011 All-American did not show variety to his pass rush, but his speed was more than enough on this night. Overall, it was a very well rounded and impressive performance by Georgia’s top defender.QB Aaron Murray, Georgia, Junior: The Georgia offensive leader overcame a slow start and responded well every time Missouri took a lead. Murray completed 22 passes in 35 attempts (63%) for 242 yards (6.9 yards per attempt) with 3 touchdown passes and 1 interception. Murray looked like a good game manager, but lacks a strong physical trait to make you believe he has a bright future in the NFL. His lack of size was evident early in the game when he had pressure up the middle and had trouble seeing a Missouri defender that resulted in an interception. Murray also showed that he is a tough quarterback who is willing to take a hit to get a pass off.He threw mostly short to intermediate passes that were safe. Murray is a decent athlete, but sometimes he did not step up fast enough to avoid pressure. He is fairly accurate on conservative throws, but needs to be better than that to make up for an arm that will not stretch a defense. Murray displayed fine command of the Georgia offense and was comfortable under center or operating out of the shotgun. Murray countered blitzes well with short passes and he got rid of the ball quickly. He lacks size, but his throwing mechanics are efficient. Murray will have plenty of opportunities to convince NFL talent evaluators that he can succeed at the next level despite lacking exceptional physical tools.WR Tavarras King, Georgia, Senior: The veteran receiver contributed with 2 receptions for 41 yards (20.5 per) and 1 touchdown. His biggest play was when King caught a short pass on a blitz and made one defender miss before racing up the middle for a 34-yard gain before being tackled at the 3-yard line. He showed a willingness to go over the middle on his touchdown grab. King is an average route-runner and certainly is no A.J. Green. However, he has decent skills and bears watching to see if he can put together a consistently big senior year.S Shawn Williams, Georgia, Senior: Williams did not do anything spectacular, but was very steady with 8 tackles. The Georgia safety is a strong tackler and helped in run support and against the pass. He was quick to come up and limit pass completions. Georgia did surrender a couple of big passing plays, but Williams was solid in his responsibilities.OLB Zaviar Gooden, Missouri, Senior: The Missouri outside linebacker left the game with an injured hamstring. He posted 8 tackles and was decent for the Tigers when he was in the game. Gooden made too many of his tackles down the field. He has the ability to slip blocks and runs well, but has to show that he can also make big plays this season. Gooden stuck his nose into traffic on a couple of effective run stops. He also was easily pushed past the quarterback when blitzing. The athletic linebacker drops well into coverage. Gooden will miss Missouri’s next game with the hamstring injury.
