The 2022 B2B Directional State Team

QB Cole Kelley, SE Louisiana (see above)
Jake Bentley, South Alabama (see above)
Eric Barriere, Eastern Washington (see his unreal scramble and throw above)  Barriere won this season’s Walter Payton Award as the best player in FCS– and he deserved for years of service in excellence, at the very least.  He was a 5-year starter at Eastern and spent the last couple of those dropping bombs and figuring out ways to win. He isn’t Kyler Murray small but his extra year or two of age and being under 6-feet tall will probably place him in the undrafted category, but there’s more than a chance he sticks.

QB EJ Perry, Brown
QB Aqeel Glass, Alabama A&M

QB Chris Oladokun, South Dakota State
QB Drew Plitt, Ball State

Honorable Mention:

Kaleb Eleby,Western Michigan
Bailey ZappeWestern Kentucky
Jack Coan, Notre Dame
Skylar Thompson, Kansas State

OT Tyler Smith, Tulsa Young and with a ton of upside, he was part of an excellent OL that worked well as a unit, even against power 5 competition:

OT Zach Tom, Wake Forest (see above)
OT Myron Cunningham, Arkansas
OT Abraham Lucas, Washington State

OT Sebastian Gutierrez, Minot State This incredibly athletic TE convert turned himself into a solid OL prospect. Played great at LT but probably is a high-level athlete at guard going forward.

OT Spencer Burford, UTSA
OT Matt Waletzko, North Dakota
OT Jalen McKenzie, USC
OT Max Mitchell, Louisiana
OT Ryan Van Demark, Connecticut (see above)
OT Bamidele Olaseni, Utah
OT Logan Bruss, Wisconsin

Antione Frazier, Northern Iowa
Tristan Taylor, Eastern Washington

IOL Cameron Jurgens, Nebraska
IOL Marcus McKethan, North Carolina
IOL J’ATyre Carter, Southern

IOL Jamaree Salyer, Georgia
IOL Dylan Parham, Memphis
IOL Chris Paul, Tulsa
IOL Derek Schweiger, Iowa State

IOL Jason Poe, Mercer About to go from total obscurity to someone’s camp darling. He has tools, size, and can play– impress your friends when he signs somewhere by saying you watched his tape:

IOL Luke Fortner, Kentucky
IOL Joshua Ezeudu, North Carolina
IOL Luke Goedeke, Central Michigan
IOL Andrew Stueber, Michigan
IOL Josh Seltzner, Wisconsin
IOL Kody Russey, Houston

Wesley French, Western Michigan
Cole Schneider, UCF
Cain Madden, Notre Dame
Orlando Umana, Mississippi
James Empey, BYU


TE Jelani Woods, Virginia He’ll block you, jump over you, run over you, run by you… TE1:

TE Gerrit Prince, Alabama-Birmingham
TE James MitchellVirginia Tech
TE Jake FergusonWisconsin
TE Cole TurnerNevada
TE Derrick Deese Jr.San Jose State

TE Zaire Mitchell-Paden, Florida Atlantic  A very hard-working and underrated all-around TE. Punches the clock, can make a big block for you or make a big play downfield.

TE Andrew Ogletree, Youngstown State

TE Nolan Givan, SE Louisiana

TE Daniel Bellinger, San Diego State

Honorable Mention:

Isaiah Likely, Coastal Carolina
Isaiah Johnson-MackSaginaw Valley State
Chigoziem Okonkwo, Maryland
Austin Allen, Nebraska

Nick Muse, South Carolina
Roger Carter, Georgia State


Connor Heyward, Michigan State
Clint Ratkovich, Northern Illinois An underrated target in the passing game and as a 3rd down/short-yardage runner and will be an extremely useful contributor for some lucky team:


Jashaun Corbin, Florida State

Pierre Strong Jr., South Dakota State This year’s Elijah Mitchell–great vision and home run speed. Watch him get plugged into a team with a solid OL and just take off.

Abram Smith, Baylor
Tyler Allgeier, BYU

Zander Horvath, Purdue (see above)
Sincere McCormick, UTSA
ZaQuandre White, South Carolina (see above)
Rachaad White, Arizona State
Charles Williams, UNLV
Cam’Ron Harris, Miami (FL)
Trestan Ebner, Baylor

Max Borghi, Washington State
Isiah Pacheco, Rutgers
He has an unusual tempo that might seem awkward but he hits the hole and goes, with a high-end gear. Didn’t have much to work with as far as surrounding cast, so his NFL career may be better that you’d expect.

Bryant Koback, Toledo
Ty Chandler, North Carolina
Stadford Anderson, Alcorn State

Julius Chestnut, Sacred Heart

Honorable Mention:
D’vonte PriceFlorida International

Mulbah Car, Houston
Shermari Jones, Coastal Carolina
Jah-Maine Martin, North Carolina A&T
Marcus Williams, Louisiana Tech

WR (I dopn’t really know how to eliminate any of these talented and overlooked WRs, so I’m going to include A LOT:

Tyler Snead, East Carolina A slot machine.

Dai’Jean Dixon, Nicholls State
Isaiah Weston, Northern Iowa
Josh Johnson, Tulsa
Lance McCutcheon, Montana State
Romeo Doubs, Nevada

Jequez Ezzard, Sam Houston State Clutch enough to score almost on demand during his team’s title run in 2021. Clutch enough to be targeted on 4th and the ballgame, fall down after the ball is thrown, and still catch it to preserve the game-winning drive. Some guys are just different.

Kalil Pimpleton, Central Michigan (see above)
Irvin Charles, Indiana (PA)
Dareke Young, Lenoir-Rhyne
Bo Melton, Rutgers
Braylon Sanders, Mississippi
