Liberty Vs MIssissippi:

SEC Channel Noon.

By Tom Mahoney

Liberty Offense: 

#7 Malik Willis- 6-1, 225, QB, Rs-Jr-Tr- He’s a little short for an NFL QB. But well-built and has a strong arm. But, 6-1 QBs who can move and throw on the run have not struggled as much as they used too in the NFL (read Mahomes;). He has the magic arm. Is a better athlete than Mahomes. Freak athlete. Has the speed of a gazelle and the arm of Zeus.

This game against Mississippi is a gigantic deal for him. He’s a small school wunderkind, who has to show it against top competition.  Playing an SEC Team, any SEC, has to be taken as his primary opponent in his rating. It will not be his only factor, but it will help reveal if he is ready for primetime yet. Accuracy and throwing quick will be everything for him in the NFL.

If he shows up bigtime in this Game? He could move into the Top Five. Not only because of his talent, but if you look below? He doesn’t have a lot of draftable dudes helping him. He has a couple of Senior WRs and a couple Senior OLs (though he does get sacked a lot). So his team is going to be vastly out matched by Ole Miss. Which is the best time to judge a QB.

He not only has to be efficient, smart, and tough to beat Miss, but he has to raise the level of his teammates and his entire team. Small School QBs have to overcome a lot more than bigger schools, because their teammates just aren’t as talent as SEC Teams. Mississippi Defense is the best Defense Willis will face this season, and maybe in his whole college career.

I don’t care who wins this game. I care about the Prospects for the NFL Draft, but I will be rooting for Liberty in this one, and I think they should win. Mississippi is in big distress. 9 of 11 Offensive Starters. who started Week One, could practice this week due to injury. If the talent level is close to equal, I say Willis leads Liberty to victory.

Mississippi  Defense: 

#7 Sam Williams- 6-4, 265, DE,- Good hands. Nice Swim. Plays in a lot of Off fronts. Nice spin move back to the QB. Strong and agile. Good hands slapping off the OT’s hands. Tough dude, who can force the double and escape two great blockers. He should give Liberty a lot of problems today.

#0 Lakia Henry- 5-11. 230, LB,  

#21 *A.J. Finley- 6-2, 210, FS, Jr-

Mississippi Offense: 

#2 *Matt Corral- 6-2, 205 Rs-Sr, QB.- He can be loose with the ball in the pocket. Tough kid. Sprained his ankle against Auburn and stayed in the game. When he doesn’t play well they lose. He has the arm. It can be a little inaccurate sometimes. Needs to tighten it up a little. He needs more help for his injured offense.

When he has time, space, and can step into the throw, he can throw a beautiful pass. He gets very upset when he screws up. I like that. He took responsibility for the loss against Auburn, even though his O-line let him down. He can make the great Slant throw in the clutch. He can put some zip in the ball. Can run play action and get to the TE fast.

Knows when to throw it away. Accuracy will be everything for him in the NFL. He can be uncomfortably accurate with throws against the best Defenses. On 4th and 6 in the Redzone against Auburn, he threw it away over the goalpost due to pressure. Doesn’t always understand the situation. I about a QB that throws the ball purposely out of bounds on 4th down. 

When his feet are right, his throw isn’t right. Not the best throwing off platform. But when his feet are under control, he can win. Good feet in the pocket. Can escape when it is collapsing and pick up half the yards. Nice job sliding up into the pocket. Quick taking off, and smart enough to slide down.

#11Dontario Drummond- 6-1, 220, Sr-Tr-
