4) Nick Eddy, Notre Dame, senior: "Tough and good moves, enough speed, will block and catch." This year he has rushed for 131 yards, caught two passes for 28 yards and scored two touchdowns.
5) Garrett Ford, West Virginia, junior: "Quick and strong and likes it. Most resembles Charley Taylor. Could make it on offense or defense." This year he has rushed for 270 yards and scored two touchdowns. Last Saturday Virginia Tech built a defense to stop Ford and did—holding him to only 24 yards rushing.
Warren McVea, Houston, junior: "Must be flanker because of size. Fast, best moves of all, good hands. Could be flop, but must take chance on him." After a long-awaited, well-promoted but disappointing start last year, McVea ended his sophomore year spectacularly. And he started superbly in 1966 by racing 80 and 99 yards for touchdowns with passes in Houston's opening two victories over Florida State and Washington State. This year his record includes 97 yards rushing, five passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns. Last Saturday Oklahoma State assigned three defenders to McVea and completely ignored the rest of the team. Final score: 35-9.
7) Lenny Snow, Georgia Tech, junior: "Great instinctive runner and has knack for doing right thing and going right place—like Frank Gifford. Lacks true speed, but has enough size and goes for the end zone." Tied for the nation's scoring leadership with seven touchdowns in only three games, he has rushed for 313 yards. Last Saturday Snow-scored both of Tech's touchdowns.
Floyd Little, Syracuse, senior: "Overrated, but good. Fine moves, but must be flanker. Too short and doesn't compensate with strength in legs as Mike Garrett of USC did. Doesn't catch clean, but gets open and scores touchdowns. Biggest drawback: will be 26 years old by rookie season." This year he has rushed 218 yards, caught seven passes for 26 yards and scored five touchdowns. Last Saturday Little ground out 110 yards against Maryland.
Harry Wilson, Nebraska, senior: "Just enough speed and moves to make it. Probably not a first-round choice, but can't be overlooked. Splendid instinctive runner and goes to the goal line." Overweight at the beginning of this season, he has still rushed for 187 yards, caught six passes for 80 yards and scored one touchdown. Last Saturday Wilson, who had been made a second-stringer because of lackadaisical play, came back to beat Iowa State.
Charlie Brown, Missouri, senior: "Fantastic broken-field ability with speed and change of pace. Must rank with Michigan's Carl Ward as one of the two most elusive runners in country. Like Ward, however, may be too small for pros to be extremely interested." After impressively ripping off 937 yards last season, Brown has been bothered by knee trouble in 1966. Starting slowly, he has gained only 73 yards in three games and scored once.
So go the streaks into the fourth week of a wonderfully streaky season. Last week, not mentioned by the pros but sure to be, are Don Moore of Washington, who gained 221 yards in the upset over Ohio State, and New Mexico State's Jim Bohl, the nation's leading rusher, who gained 73 yards in a 23-7 win over Utah State.
