Texas Tech QB Seth Doege will get a chance to prove he is draft worthy against a stout Minnesota pass defense. Doege is fourth in the nation in passing yardage with 3,934 and second in passing touchdowns with 38. There likely won’t be many players from this game drafted come April, with Doege and Tech SS Cody Davis having the best chances. Gofer QB Marquis Gray may need to switch positions to have a
chance at the next level. Look for Texas Tech to win this one.

Texas Tech
QB Seth Doege, #7, 6’01, 200
Doege hopes to prove his game will translate to the next level despite his lack in prototypical size and arm strength. He’s an efficient system QB who will struggle to make the deep out. He has some good athletic ability and solid intangibles but he’ll likely have to prove himself as an UDFA.

SS Cody Davis, #16, 6’2, 204
Davis has a great size/speed ratio. He has a knack for the ball leading the Raiders in tackles and adding 3 interceptions on the season. He has the look of a mid to late round prospect who could stick after a year on the practice squad.

OT LaAdrian Waddle, #65, 6’-6” 330
RB Eric Stephens Jr, #24, 5’-8’ 202
FS DJ Johnson, #12 6’-0” 190
WR Alex Torres, #86 6’1” 202
WR Darrin Moore, #14 6’-4” 216
WR Tyson Williams, #3 5’11” 210

Minnesota Gophers
QB (ATH) MarQueis Gray, #12, 6’4, 250
Gray will likely need to transition to another position to have a chance to make it at the next level. He has great size and athleticism and might transition well to H-Back or receiver. It will be interesting to see how many snaps Gray get’s in this game at WR or TE.

DE D.L. Whilhite #95 6’-3” 250
DT Ra’Shede Hageman #99 6′-5″, 302 
CB/KR Troy Stoudermire, #11, 5’-11” 195

Game Prediction: Texas Tech 35 – Minnesota 17
