With the NFL slated to kickoff in mere days, we at B5Q have been churning out scouting reports in anticipation for the NFL Draft highlighting the former Badgers who will aim to make an NFL roster come fall.

In addition to our scouting reports brought to you by Owen Riese, we thought it might be a fun trip back down memory lane to review some of the top plays produced by some of the prospects with the best odds to be selected this weekend.

To kickoff our top plays retrospect series, we first turn our attention to some of the top plays by wide receiver Quintez Cephus last year.

No. 5: An in-stride stretch for the touchdown against Minnesota

While this catch was not nearly as highlight reel-esque as some of the others, it was an absolutely huge touchdown catch in the scheme of the Minnesota game. Cephus split the seam and was off to the races for the touchdown to help secure the Axe.

No. 4: Crash course touchdown catch versus Oregon

After finding the weak spot in the zone, Cephus was able to reel in a tough contested grab just before taking a hit from the oncoming safety to score crucial touchdown in the Rose Bowl.

No. 3: Back shoulder adjustment over Purdue

On a back shoulder fade to the front pylon by Jack Coan, Quintez Cephus adjusted brilliantly for a crisp touchdown catch against the Purdue defender.

No. 2: Hand eye coordination on point against Michigan State

His one-handed juggle catch against Michigan State was a thing of beauty on the high throw. Cephus has phenomenal ball skills, and this catch truly shows that.

No. 1: Elevation is key

Cephus has showed throughout his career that he can win one-on-one battles for contested passes, but this grab was bananas. At a time in the game where the Badgers were pushing the tempo of the game, Cephus came up with a gigantic grab to help put points up for the offense against OSU.
