Friday night’s FCS Championship game features the chance to get a look at NFL Draft prospect Pat Devlin, quarterback of the Delaware Blue Hens. Devlin began his career at Penn State, spending two years with the Nittany Lions before transferring in an effort to find more playing time. At Delaware, he stepped in as the starter right away in 2009, and has been a big key to the Hens success in 2010.
Here’s a look at the two prospects in the FCS Championship Game.
Pat Devlin, Delaware quarterback: Ranked as the No. 98 overall prospect in the 2011 Draft by SB Nation’s Mocking the Draft, Devlin is completing just below 70 percent of his passes in 2010. The senior threw for 2,810 yards and 22 touchdowns to just two interceptions thus far and is a load to handle for any defense. The Eagles have a tough task ahead, so keep an eye on this talented prospect.
Renard Williams, Eastern Washington defensive tackle: Williams just barely makes to top-200, sliding in under the wire at No. 198. In 2010, for the second-straight year, Williams was named to the All-Big Sky first team for his work in the trenches. Williams turned heads with a breakout sophomore year, and has seen his share of double- and triple-teams as a result. While his stats are down this year, the big man did scoop up a fumble and run for a touchdown. Keep an eye on him.
Even though it’s FCS football, a division lower than the big boys, there’s still plenty of talent to see. The FCS Championship between Eastern Washington and Delaware features some of the best the FCS has to offer and should be a great show on Friday night.
