I did something like this last year. But this one's a little more expanded.

Put yourself in this scenario: You're a college prospect in the 2009 NFL Draft. You then find out Nick Saban and Randy Mueller selects you with their pick. Post your name (real or fake, don't matter), round selected, measurables, school, position(s), strengths, weaknesses, and any other tidbit. Let me start.

Name: H.R. "Pita" Petion
Round Selected: 6th (But was projected as a mid-fifth round pick)
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 212 lbs
School: Florida Atlantic University
Position: Safety

Strengths: Has the athletic ability and brains to play as both a in-the-box, run-supporting Strong Safety or a man-to-man or zone Free Safety, and maybe even cornerback. He also has an amazing 45" vertical leap. He is very fast (4.35 in the 40) and has been known to break up passes in the back field. He is also a great tackler.

Weaknesses: He has been exploited during blitzes due to his tendencies to overpursue a player during plays. He can be too agrresive. Despite being an all Sun-Belt player, he hasn't always played against elite talent. His pass rushing, while certainly not the worst, has plenty of room to improve.

Other Information: While he's primary as safety, he has stepped in as a cornerback on the few occasions when the starting cornerbacks went down. Led his teams last year in interceptions, picking off 8 passes. Nickname "Pita" was coined when an opposing QB called him a "pain in the ***" during his junior year after his break out game, posting 5 interceptions, 5 tackles (all of them solo, 3 for a loss), 2 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
