Last year this game was a nightmare for Motley as he ended up getting benched in such a big stage due to poor play. A year later he found redemption and made game changing plays for an Oklahoma defense that has been desperate for takeaways.
Not highly regarded player, Motley helped himself out with his two forced fumbles and an interception on Saturday night. There is a place in the NFL for guys who can find the football. His game Saturday night will force teams to give his tape a little bit of a deeper look. Parnell Motley found redemption in this rivarly and may have found himself some draft stock as well.
Humphrey has been a bully on the offensive line all season long. Saturday night that didn’t change has he paved running lanes for an Oklahoma team that ran the ball 44 times and only threw it 17 times. For a heavy passing team, it tells you how dominant Oklahoma was in the trenches.
Humphrey is an interior offensive lineman who plays with great leverage and a mean streak to finish blocks through the echo of the whistle. Creed Humphrey has led possibly the best offensive line in the country this year and may have paved his way to a first-round selection in the process.
