Oh, it's a definite lock. Only question left is who wins the Heisman: Lee, Helu Jr, or Suh?
I did like what I saw from Lee. He really does put some great zip on the ball. He looked comfortable in the pocket and was hitting guys at every level. For as much as I loved Taylor and Ganz, neither had that kind of arm.
Cody Green did some things that should have NU fans excited about the future. His speed on the 30 yard run was impressive. A true dual-threat.
Helu Jr. is just generally awesome. Knows how to find the hole, knows how to hit the hole, has the speed to break it lose as soon as he finds space.
Defensive looked strong at times, but certainly allowed their share of yards. I'd chalk it up largely to the young LB corp. They look like they have a lot of speed and potential, but it might take half a season or so before they're consistently in the right places.
