Each Monday all the way through the college football pep up, draft expert Bucky Brooks at one's desire share his notes and evaluations on quiescent NFL prospects for the 2012 blueprint and beyond.

An asterisk denotes players who aren't seniors. LSU has the top cornerback tandem in college football. That potency comes as a surprise to some, but you desire be hard pressed to chance an SEC quarterback who disagrees.

The Tigers' spirited duo of Tyrann Mathieu and Morris Claiborne are fundamentally poll in all aspects of the game, but it is their capacity to create turnovers that separates them from the championship.

Mathieu and Claiborne take done every which way with picks, affected fumbles and even a stumble return for a score against Kentucky. Their fondness for getting their hands on the ball has been one of the reasons LSU's defense ranks all of a add up to the nation's best.

Mathieu, in information particularly, has shown extraordinary ball skills in the face being a sophomore. He has one interception, three feigned fumbles and three bobble recoveries in 2011.

He also has 1.5 sacks and three tackles for waste. His ability to create adverse plays has encouraged coaches to use him as a playmaker from his nickel posture.

Claiborne is not as medico or aggressive as his counterpart, but is a more perfect cover man. He excels at reading routes and innocent his instincts to make plays on the ball. He has seven picks upward of the past two seasons.

LSU has a extended history of sending spare prospects to the pros Corey Webster, Ryan Clark, LaRon Landry and Patrick Peterson and their litter cornerback tandem could display on that tradition in a few years.

Clemson's underrated defensive plumb b in agreement features studs in DT Brandon Thompson and DE Andre Subsection. Both players were splendid in the Tigers' win over Virginia Tech, and scouts are certainly paying heed to their dominating air.

Thompson, rated as one of the top defensive tackles in the 2012 year, is an athletic run stuffer with uncommon strength and power. At 6-foot-2, 304 pounds, he overwhelms blockers with his dynamite first-step quickness and dragoon. His talent was on display against Virginia Tech, with six stops, a take a crack at for loss and a half bounce.

While most observers focal point on sacks when measuring a defensive lineman's effectiveness, it was Thompson's power to disrupt the offensive squirt up the middle that stood out.
