Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs won 45-31 but NFL scouts will note strong efforts in the game from Kentucky's top 2015 NFL prospects Alvin "Bud" Dupree and Za'Darius Smith as well as a breakout performance from redshirt sophomore QB Patrick Towles.
When the defensive backs closed the doors to Lucas Oil Stadium on Tuesday, several cornerbacks -- Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert, Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard and TCU's Jason Verrett -- left lasting impressions. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix confirmed his spot as NFLDraftScout.com's top safety but Louisville FS Calvin Pryor is right there.
Minnesota cut Antoine Winfield six days ago but is talking to his agent about bringing him back. Winfield graded out as the NFL's top corner in 2012. The 35-year-old was scheduled to make $7.25 million this season before his release.
