who will make a splash?

Trey Burton, WR/TE, Florida (6 TD game vs. Kentucky as a freshman)
David Fluellen, RB, Toledo (5'11" 224 "bowling ball"-type build)
Carey Spear, K, Vanderbilt
Known for being a big hitter for a kicker:
Josh Andrews, OG/C, Oregon State
Kadron Boone, WR, LSU
Henry Josey, RB, Missouri (5'8" 194 scatback, had a horrific knee injury in 2011 that he came back from to play in 2013)
John Fulton, CB, Alabama
Quron Pratt, WR, Rutgers
Daytawion Lowe, S, Oklahoma State
Frank Mays, DE, Florida A&M (he's 6'9")
Blake Annen, TE, Cincinnati (same program as Celek)
Donald Hawkins, G, Texas
Karim Barton, G, Morgan State
Wade Keliikipi, DT, Oregon (played for Kelly in college)
Kevin Graf, T, USC
Yeah, that second clip of Spear is cool. I hope he can kick consistently.
“During the game, I kind of just let my instincts and reaction take control,” Spear said. “If you watch any of the videos, I don’t really have great tackling form. I just fly in there a little crazy to make a play.”

Although he enjoys bringing the pain to his opponents on the football field, Spear’s off-field persona doesn’t match up. A student leader of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, he has taken mission trips to Haiti, Peru and Mexico and is one of 10 finalists for the Vanderbilt Outstanding Senior award. Spear felt compelled to submit an application, citing the university’s role in helping him grow in many areas of his life, namely his faith, maturity and academics.

Spear has definitely established himself as a leader in the community and also as a captain of the team. His teammates and coaching staff respect him immensely, and not just for the plays that he makes on game day. In fact, these feelings go beyond respect. Head coach James Franklin said he has “a man crush” on Spear.

Sounds like they could be grooming him to take over after Sproles?

Position: Running back

School: University of Missouri

Height/Weight: 5-8 1/8, 194 pounds

Projected round: 6 or 7

Pros: One of the fastest backs in the draft who smoothly makes cuts and accelerates. Averaged 7.4 yards per carry in his final two seasons playing. Incredibly tough kid who overcame a potential career-ending injury to return and produce on a team that played for the SEC championship last season. For being slight of frame is a willing and decent pass protector and has good enough hands to be a threat out of the backfield though he wasn't used much in that way. Agile enough to make tacklers miss in the open field and gain extra yards.

Cons: In terms of carries didn't have enough to wear his tread off, but injury issues and durability are a concern. The devastating knee injury he suffered cost him a full season and any back with that type of injury is likely to have some time shaved off his career. Can run between the tackles but isn't going to run through many tackles or move any piles. Probably not suited for short-yardage situations or near the goal line. Spent most of his career in spread offense running through wide splits and light boxes. Will need to try to add some bulk without sacrificing speed.

Trevor Martinez, DB/QB, Nebraska

Speculation is they're going to try him as a safety.
