  • Omar Jacobs, Bowling Green
  • Vince Young, Texas
  • Reggie McNeal, Texas A&M
  • Brad Smith, Missouri

Running Backs

  • Reggie Bush

Leinart started out the game very cold, but overall didn't have a bad game against the Bruins. He even had an eleven yard reception from Dwayne Jarrett in the red zone. He tried to spin in for the touchdown, but fell short. USC didn't fall short and they finished their season undefeated. Now it's the game that everyone wanted in the Rose Bowl. #1 USC going up against #2 Texas for the national title. If USC can win this heavyweight fight it will be an unprecedented 3rd straight national title for the Trojans. Leinart had better start out the game better than he did this one because it should be a slugfest in the Rose Bowl and both sides will need to be on top of their game.


Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green Falcons
6'4" 224 lbs. - Junior - 80th ranked high school QB when entering college

The Falcons season is over as they failed to reach a bowl game in 2005. Be on the lookout for Omar Jacobs' full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Vince Young, QB, Texas Longhorns
6'5" 230 lbs. - Junior - 2nd ranked high school QB when entering college

The Big XII Championship game looked more like David vs. Goliath. And this time Goliath kicked David up and down the field. Vince Young had a very accurate day passing against the vanilla Buffalo defense. He didn't play much into the 3rd quarter and now Texas gets to play for it's first undisputed national title since 1969. The Longhorns are hoping that this title game goes better than the last Big XII champ to roll up on USC in the big one. Last year Oklahoma beat up on CU in the Big XII championship game only to get crushed by an efficient USC offense in the title game. Vince Young bounced back nicely after performing poorly against Texas A&M. Reggie Bush should win the Heisman trophy with Young coming in second. We'll see who the big winner really is at the Rose Bowl.


Reggie McNeal, QB, Texas A&M Aggies
6'2" 206 lbs. - Senior - 3rd ranked high school QB when entering college

The Aggies season is over as they failed to reach a bowl game in 2005. Be on the lookout for Reggie McNeal's full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Brad Smith, QB, Missouri Tigers
6'2" 210 lbs. - Senior

The Tigers were inactive in week 14. They play December 30th in the Independence Bowl versus South Carolina in Brad Smith's final collegiate game. Be on the lookout for Brad Smith's full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Reggie Bush, RB, USC Trojans

Reggie Bush had another monster game on his way to the Rose Bowl. Nothing surprising here. Bush is well on his way to winning the Heisman trophy and this game was the icing on the cake. I was shocked that he got 24 carries as this game was in control from the beginning. Bush put up great stats yet again and showed the type of playmaking ability that could make him the #1 overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft. Reggie and his family were noncommittal on him entering the draft early. Both his mom and dad said that they would stand behind Reggie in whatever decision he makes. Reports are that Bush will turn pro if he's a lock for the 1st overall.


DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis Tigers
5'10" 217 lbs. - Senior - 66th ranked high school RB when entering college

The Tigers were inactive in week 14. They play December 26th in the Motor City Bowl against Akron. This is the same Bowl game they played in 2004 where Williams broke his leg. Let's hope that he stays injury free this year because he is a lock to be a first round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. Be on the lookout for DeAngelo Williams' full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.

LenDale White, RB, USC Trojans

LenDale rolled over the soft Bruins defense and for the 3rd time in 3 years he finishes the season as the Trojans leading touchdown machine (21). He didn't lead the team in rushing as he did his freshmen and sophomore years, but he's still proven to be a very important cog in the Trojan horse. White displayed his trademark power to Reggie Bush's flash. Now we'll see if USC can win their 3rd title in 3 years. White was a very important part of their win over Oklahoma last year and the Longhorn defense had better be on the lookout for this kid from Colorado.


Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota Golden Gophers
5'11" 205 lbs. - Junior - 42nd ranked high school RB when entering college

The Gophers were inactive in week 14. They play December 30th in the Music City Bowl against Virginia. It will be interesting to see if Maroney can bounce back from his injury riddled finish of 2005. Laurence is a top-tier back and should perform well.


Leon Washington, RB, Florida State Seminoles
5'9" 202 lbs. - Senior - 8th ranked high school WR when entering college

It was an upset to be sure as the unranked Seminoles took out the #5 Virginia Tech Hokies. The 'Noles played lights out and had an overall solid game. Leon Washington got in the end zone and displayed some good forward lean and power on his 11 carries. It was 27-3 going into the 4th quarter and Marcus Vick led the Hokies back from that deficit, but in the end it wasn't enough.


Martin Nance, WR, Miami (OH) Redhawks
6'5" 215 lbs. - Senior

The Redhawks season is over as they failed to reach a bowl game in 2005. Be on the lookout for Martin Nance's full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State Sun Devils
6'2" 197 lbs. - Senior

The Sun Devils were inactive in week 14. They play December 27th in the Insight Bowl versus Rutgers. This will be Hagan's final collegiate game as he is expected to be one of the top WRs picked in the 2006 NFL Draft. Be on the lookout for Derek Hagan's full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Jarrett Hicks, WR, Texas Tech Red Raiders
6'4" 209 lbs. - Junior

The Red Raiders were inactive in week 14. They play January 2nd in the Cotton Bowl versus Alabama. It's not known if Hicks is going to make the jump to the pros. Be on the lookout for Jarret Hicks' full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.


Mike Hass, WR, Oregon State Beavers
6'1" 209 lbs. - Senior

The Beavers season is over as they failed to reach a bowl game in 2005. Be on the lookout for Mike Hass' full season wrap up in the Ones 2 Watch report cards.

Steve Smith had a couple of early game catches and that was about it against the Bruins. One of his catches was a great sideline catch where he got an NFL rule 2 feet in bounds. He has great concentration and solid hands. NFL scouts definitely have their eyes on Smith and while he may not be a high pick, he should be a first day pick and provide great value for whatever team drafts him.


I hope everyone enjoyed The Ones 2 Watch in 2005! As stated in this article, be on the lookout for the FULL SEASON wrap up as I grade the Ones 2 Watch on their 2005 performance.
