Well, we're finally reaching a point in the season with better depth in terms of head-to-head player matchups. No offense to the schools who need to travel to Florida, Alabama or Texas for a big payday, but it's not where you find a lot of matchups between a pair of possible first-round picks. This weekend, however, we'll see some good battles between players we'll be following all the way to the draft.
This is just a classic guard-defensive tackle showdown. I've said all there is to say about Suh, who's currently No. 5 on the Big Board. He's a relentless force, never takes a play off, and subsequently, he's one of the more difficult guys any guard or center (or both) will ever have to deal with. Suh is a guy who can go to secondary moves any time you handle his first.
Render is a good athlete at a position where you rarely find them and is a key for the Hokies' running game. He performed well when they faced Alabama, which has a lot of talent on defense, and battling Suh to even a stalemate would be impressive.
