1.DT Boo Robinson 6'2"325lbs. - This guy may be under the radar, but I suspect after the combine he probably will not.

Strengths
Has very good athleticism for the position, and is one of only a very few DTs who, if he declares, can be drafted as a pure 3-4 NT. Has great size and can still go 20 pounds bigger if you need him at nose, or can be drafted as a 4-3 DT and stay at 300. Agile for such a big man. Caves the pocket. Must be double-teamed. Strong and very, very smart. Can outthink and outmanuever most offensive linemen. Sets them up, and then gets them on a counter move. Getting better and stronger every year. Has loads of upside.
Weaknesses
Has some physical maturing to complete, and can still add some muscle. Has non-football options. Not a vibrant pass rusher at this point in his development. Can still use some leverage and technique work. Not a finisher on the pass rush yet.

2.OLB Brandon Lang 6'3"252lbs.

Stock: Lang along with his teammate Cameron Sheffield, who is lower on this list, form a great pass rushing tandem. Troy has produced some very good NFL talent on the defensive side of the ball in DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys and Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants. Lang is 6’3, 252 and has a great burst off the line of scrimmage. Last season, he led the team in sacks (10 ½), tackles for loss (17 ½) and quarterback hurries (28), to go along with 69 total tackles.

Projection: Lang is very versatile and can play standing up or with his hand on the ground- with his size he could fit in a 3-4 defense or a 4-3 defense. You might not hear much about him during the season but when we get closer to the NFL Draft, expect to hear Lang referenced often as someone who could end up being a first round pick.http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010-Big-Board/Brandon-Lang.html

3. Jermaine Cunningham 6'3"252lbs.-The other DE on UF's DL, projected as a 3-4 OLB. IMO a better all-around player than Dunlap and he can hold-up on the edge.

2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jermaine Cunningham, DE, Florida

Cunningham played sparingly as a freshman in 2006 but really broke out as a sophomore, making the most of 13 starts in 13 games for the Florida Gators. It has been full steam ahead ever since for Cunningham, now a senior. The defensive end recorded 5.5 sacks in 2007, six sacks in 14 games as a junior, and is currently tied for first on the team with seven sacks (despite missing two games) heading into the upcoming Sugar Bowl. Playing opposite highly-touted prospect Carlos Dunlap, Cunningham is leading the Gators--by a wide margin--in both tackles for loss (12) and quarterback hurries (six). He also has two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He was named to the All-SEC Second Team by both the media and the conference's coaches. Cunningham does not take up a lot of space; he is 6'3 and 250 pounds--the build of a prototypical pass-rusher (although he did well to add 15 pounds of bulk in between his junior and senior campaigns). He is quick off the end (he has been clocked as fast as 4.59 in the 40-yard dash while generally running between 4.60 and 4.70) and can mix up offensive linemen by changing direction extremely well. Cunningham has had some minor injury trouble throughout his career and he was also arrested in December of 2007 for misdemeanor battery stemming from a restaurant fracas. Still, those issues seem to be minor--if not things of the past altogether--and should not hurt his draft stock. Cunningham made a wise move returning to school and it should pay off with a second or third round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.

4.Naaman Roosevelt

Wide Receiver
Senior
Buffalo
6’ 0” 187 lbs.


Strengths: Route Running, Hands, Quickness, Intelligence, Agility, Open Field, Production

Weaknesses: Strength, Frame, Toughness, Durability, Blocking, Level of Competition

Update January 3, 2010- The Bulls were unable to match their offensive production of the 2008 season minus QB Drew Willy, a Colts practice squader, finishing with roughly 500 fewer total yards and a drop of 135 points. Losing senior RB James Starks to injury, costing him the entire 2009 season, hurt badly when coupled with the loss of Willy. As a result, Roosevelt’s production dropped off dramatically. His 70 catches, 954 yards and 9 TD represent a very good year for most receivers but pale in comparison to his 2008 totals of 104 catches, 1,402 yards and 13 TD. His average receiving yards per game dropped from 100.1 to 86.7. His final game as a Buffalo Bull resulted in 8 catches for 135 yards and 3 TD against Ohio.
A knee injury shelved him for Buffalo’s final two games. Despite his slight frame, the knee injury appears routine and he will be healthy in time for the East West Shrine Game, which he has been invited too. Roosevelt finished his college career as the school's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and all- purpose yardage. Never a candidate for the first round, he needed a repeat of his 2008 season to cement himself as a 2nd round pick and that didn’t happen. He turned in a great season though and will hear his name called as a 3rd rounder. He has the potential to be very good at the next level and projects as a #2 receiver or at minimum a slot receiver with return potential.

5.QB Levi Brown 6'3"220lbs.

Levi Brown (Troy, Sr., QB), has been selected First Team All-Sun Belt Conference for the 2009 college football season as voted on by both the Sun Belt Coaches and Media. Brown’s 2009 season included twice breaking the 41-year-old school record for passing yards in a game. His 477-yard effort against FAU is tied for the ninth best passing game in the country this year. He has, or will, set new school season records for pass completions, passing yards, passing yards per game, total offensive yards and total offense per game. In addition to his school marks, Brown set SBC records for passing yards and total offense in a season and also set a new league mark by being named SBC Offensive Player of the Week six times during the year. His seven career SBC weekly awards is the most by any offensive player in league history. Brown needs just 132 passing yards in the Trojans GMAC Bowl game against Central Michigan to become the 40th player in FBS history, and the first at Troy or in the SBC history, to pass for more than 4,000 yards in a season. He has been invited to play in the Texas vs. USA All-Star Game and is awaiting an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl, which will also be played in Mobile, site of the GMAC Bowl. - Troy football http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=77731&draftyear=2010&genpos=qb

6.ILB Boris Lee 6'0"245lbs.

Troy has gotten a lot of attention with the success of DeMarcus Ware in the NFL. This year they have two hybrid ends in Cameron Sheffield and Brandon Lang that envoke some Ware discussions, but it’s a true linebacker that leads the defense. Lee plays in the middle of the defense and makes plays all over the field. He is tough and aggressive, willing to come up and sift through the garbage to make a tackle at the line of scrimmage. He is very active and can get to the perimeter to stop the run. What stands out the most is his awareness in coverage. He is a bit short at barely 6' tall, and may not be the most explosive athlete, but he gets good depth in his drops and shows ball skills you do not always find in linebackers. Lee has seven career interceptions coming into his senior season. He is a very solid all around linebacker prospect that could provide depth inside or out, and may surprise some and become a starter one day. http://www.footballsfuture.com/2010/sleepers.html

7. S Barry Church 6'2"219lbs.

Church chose Toledo because of the opportunity to play right away. He made the most of that opportunity, earning 1st team all MAC honors as a true freshman. He earned 1st team honors as a sophomore and junior as well, and is now vying to become a four time 1st team All MAC defender. He is well on his way with 65 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks, a pick, and two blocked kicks through the first seven games of this season. Church is just a natural on the football field. He seems to know where the action is, and gets himself in position to make a play no matter where it is. He is excellent at coming up to the line of scrimmage and supporting the run. He is aggressive and loves to make a hit. Packing almost 220lbs on his 6'2 frame gives him the size to consistently come up and make plays without much worry about the toll it takes on his body. Church also shows tremendous instincts in coverage, as his eight career picks before this season prove. He may not have the best speed and may not be the best athlete, but Church is an excellent football player. He won’t make plays on raw talent alone but he has the instincts to always be near the action. His size, toughness, instincts and solid enough physical tools could give him a long life in the NFL. http://www.footballsfuture.com/2010/sleepers.html

8. FS Van Eskridge 6'0"195lbs.

Eskridge, a three-year starter at free safety, was a key member in ECU’s 38-32 win over No. 18 Houston in the Conference USA Championship Game Saturday, Dec. 5 as he picked off a pair of passes, including one in the endzone with 42 seconds remaining. Eskridge earned an ESPN Gameday Final helmet sticker for his play against the Cougars, which also included 10 stops. The Shelby, N.C. native leads the Pirates with six interceptions, which ranks 13th in the NCAA, while ranking second on the squad in tackles (93) and pass breakups (7).

In 2008, Eskridge earned first-team All C-USA honors after starting 13 games and tallying 97 overall stops (third on unit). He was also the team’s co-leader with four interceptions. Eskridge had a pair of fourth quarter interceptions at Tulsa in the C-USA Championship Game, the last with 1:03 remaining to secure the Pirates’ 27-24 triumph.

During his four-year career, the two-time All C-USA performer has collected 354 stops, which ranks ninth all-time in school history, and has recorded 11 interceptions.http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Latest/van_eskridge_shrine_game.html

9.C John Estes 6'3" 300lbs.

Senior C John Estes. The line might have been miserable last year, but it wasn’t Estes’s fault. The two-time All-WAC star has started every game in his career after starting out at guard. Now he’s among the nation’s most dominant technicians in the middle of the line. While it’s hard to praise a player too much on such a bad line, but he really is that good. He doesn’t make mistakes.http://cfn.scout.com/2/879161.html

Tall, strong, athletic WR who led Fresno State in receptions his junior and senior years. 2nd Team All-WAC.
Strengths
Classic height/weight combination and physicality make him a threat to go up and win any contested pass. Uses physical size to dominate downfield as run blocker - made several key "TD blocks" for running backs over the season. Solid route running skills.
Weaknesses
Will occassionally use body to catch and lacks elite speed to be consistent deep threat against NFL caliber DBs.

11. WR Terrell Hudgins 6'2"236lbs.

Elon's Terrell Hudgins Rewrites The NCAA Record Book: A LOOK AT TERRELL HUDGINS' RECORDS...NCAA Records - 207 - combined receptions in one season (FCS record with former teammate Michael Mayers in 2007) - 395 - career receptions (all NCAA Division I record) - 123 - receptions in a season (done in 2009; FCS record) - 8.8 - career receptions per game (FCS record) - 5,250 - career receiving yards (all NCAA Division I record) - 116.7 - career average yards gained receiving per game (FCS record) - 28 - career games gaining 100 or more yards receiving (all NCAA Division I record) - 1.2 - career touchdown passes caught per game (ties FCS record) - 34 - career games with a touchdown catch (FCS record) - 4 - career 1,000-yard receiving seasons (all NCAA Division I record)...SoCon Records: 10 - games in a season with 100 or more receiving yards (done in 2009) - 5 - consecutive games with 100 or more receiving yards (done once in 2006 and twice in 2009) - 2,538 - combined receiving yards in a season (with former teammate Michael Mayers in 2007) - 3 - career 200 or more receiving yard games (tied) - 52 - career receiving touchdowns - 1,633 - receiving yards in a season (done in 2009)...Elon Records: 16 - receptions in a game (vs. Liberty and at Furman in 2007; at Furman in 2009) - 4 - touchdown receptions in a game (vs. Liberty in 2007) - 18 - touchdown receptions in a season. http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=68230&draftyear=2010&genpos=WR

Skinny: Many times you find a h-back at TE but rarely do you find a potential h-back at wide receiver and that is exactly what Hudgins could be. His size and speed have the makings of a move to h-back simply because he doesn’t have the height of a Brian Finneran type to stay at WR in the NFL. Increasing his speed will be key at Hudgins has ideal hands, route running, and is a big play threat for the Phoenix. The former East Carolina signee out of high school has been very productive but has to work on his release, change of direction, and quickness. Hudgins posted 1,116 yards and 10 touchdowns on 86 catches to earn Walter Camp All-America honors and 1st team All-SoCon plaudits for the third straight season. His senior year will be evaluated closely as his talent is too good to reject, however, like Armanti Edwards, will be a tougher to project at the next level. He is currently a marginal draft pick who is likely a priority free agent entering the season.http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010-Big-Board/Terrell-Hudgins.html

12. TE Anthony McCoy 6'5"255lbs.

Strengths Solid hands. Athletic TE with good size. Will make an effort to block in the run game. Can beat the LB in the open field.
Weaknesses
Academics were not attended to and was ineligible for the Emerald Bowl. Has to have better ball security. Needs to stick his blocks a little better. A little light as a blocker for the next level.
http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=4359

Skinny: McCoy has great size at 6-5, 255 pounds, and hauled in 22 passes for 256 yards and a touchdown last season. NFL scouts like his size and think he is a good athlete, he just needs to be more consistent in his route running. McCoy has the ability to become a bigger threat in the passing game this season and if he improves on his blocking, he possesses massive upside.www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010.../Anthony-McCoy.html (http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010-Big-Board/Anthony-McCoy.html)

13. MLB Lee Campbell 6'3"246lbs.

As a true freshman at Minnesota in 2006, Lee appeared in 10 games a a reserve DE and recorded 11 tackles. In 2007, he became a starter at DE and was one of just three Gophers to start all 12 games. He led all Minnesota defensive linemen in total tackles with 40, a figure that ranked eighth on the team, and he finished fourth on the squad in tackles for losses with eight, including one sack. As a junior in 2008, Lee moved to middle linebacker and started 12 of 13 games and finished the regular season as the team’s leading tackler with 80 total tackles on the year. He also recorded four sacks, 5.5 tackles for losses, two interceptions, three fumble recoveries, a forced fumble and a pass breakup. He made his senior season his best this year, tallying 67 solo tackles, 47 assists, 9.5 TFLs, .5 sacks, 1 interception, 5 PBUs, 1 QBH, 1 FR, 2 BKs.
Strengths
Downhill thumper at MLB who has been more productive each year. Pro size and speed. Solid at the POA and tackles well. Plays fast. Penetrates gaps and makes plays in the backfield. Has experience at DE and can step up and play a 2-pt. DE in some sets. Recoils from initial contact with blockers and reloads rather than staying wired. Aware in coverage.
Weaknesses
A little bit straight-linish. Not real smooth dropping and doesn't have great COD and lateral agility. Not an elite run stuffer, or blitzer, or coverage guy. Looks like a converted defensive lineman at times. If used as a DE, he doesn't always finish that well when rushing the QB.
Projection
A poor man's Mike Vrable who can do a lot of things pretty well. Looks like a 3rd rounder based on his body of work with the Gophers, but agilityworkouts in the post-season could move him a full round in either direction.http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=4719

14. OLB Larry Hart 6'0"248lbs.

2009 SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Larry Hart, Central Arkansas, a senior from Madison, Miss. was the first player to repeat as Defensive Player of the Year since 1992-93 and the sixth all-time. He was named along with Stephen F. Austin defensive end Tim Knicky. Hart was tied for second in the league in sacks (11) and was ninth in tackles for loss (10). He also led the league in forced fumbles (4) and had a fumble recovery, an interception and two blocked kicks. “I am very pleased for Larry Hart,’ said UCA head coach Clint Conque. “He once again put together a fantastic season, all the while drawing double teams and chip blocks. Every opponent we played this season had some type of plan for Larry. “For two consecutive years, he has proven to be the most dominate defender in the Southland Conference. This is a very well-deserved honor for this young man.’ Hart was a first-team All-Southland selection.http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=88555&draftyear=2010&genpos=OLB

15. WR Ricardo Lockette 6'3"200lbs.


Overview Ricardo Lockette was recruited by a few SEC schools out of HS and nearly signed with Auburn. He was a 400m champ ran a 48.26 400m in 05. More recently ran a 6.80 60m and a 21.74 200M in the past indoor season. He's just over 6'3" 200 more or less a couple, has big soft hands. I think he's a true sleeper. Nobody else seems to be talking about him. He could be a faster Jake Reed when he fills out. Against accounted for 191 all-purpose yards and scored two touchdowns He returned a kickoff for a score and caught six passes for 83 yards and another touchdown and at this level he looks like Jeremy Maclin.
Strengths
Size, speed and body control that are D-1 level.
Weaknesses
His main weakness is weakness if he were at Auburn he'd be 210-220 and much stronger.
Projection
When word gets out, and so far it has not, he'll be one of DII most
discussed preospects. I project him as a 5th rounder but if he gets to the Senior Bowl or Combine 3rd or even 2nd is not out of the question.http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=3043
What got my attention about this guy is what I read on a Steeler's forum:

Lockette has ideal size (6’2 ½, 205) and has blazing speed (4.36) which was also shown this off-season when he won the NCAA Division II 200M Championship. Lockette finished with 19 catches for 2177 yards :jawdrop:while posting a 27.8 avg. on kickoff returns.http://www.steelersfever.com/forums/showthread.php?p=688567 (http://www.steelersfever.com/forums/showthread.php?p=688567)

Is he another Ted"I Wilt Under Pressure"Ginn? I don't know, but I would rather give him a shot than have to sit and watch Teddy for another season:

Tindal blazed a 4.22 40 time in the spring and has high expectations entering the season as a possible late round pick and SAC Offensive Player of the Year candidate. Through nine games he has just 32 catches for 423 yards and four touchdowns and is fourth on the team in catches. His numbers to date likely will keep him out of the NFL Scouting Combine and have made him a player that must wow scouts in the postseason or else he is risking becoming a camp body only.http://www.jbscouting.com/index.php/blog/277-risers-fallers

17. CB Jarvis Richards 5’10"193lbs.

- Richards is forgotten by most because he went down early in 2008 with a torn ACL but is back for the 2009 season. His size (5’10, 193) and speed (4.45-4.49), shown when he was a regional qualifier in the 100-meter dash in high school, will create a buzz if he has a productive year. Before his injury he posted 22 tackles, 0.5 tackle for loss, a pick, and two breakups in four games. http://draftguys.com/index.php/articles/1/2010_nfl_draft_small_school_prospect_early_outlook/

POSITIVES: Nice-sized cornerback with good ball skills. Fluid turning his hips to run with opponents, works well with safeties, and effectively reads the action. Can run downfield with opponents, displays a burst to the action, as well as a sense of timing. Stays with his responsibilities, shows ability in zone, and has quarterbacks throwing away from him. Works to get off blocks to make plays up the field against the run, wraps up tackling, and is a sure handed tackler.
NEGATIVES: Plays back on his heels against top competition. Shows hesitation reacting to opponents' moves off the line.
ANALYSIS: Richards was an up-and-coming cornerback prospect moving into his senior season before his year was cut short by knee injury. He must now complete his rehabilitation and get back to prior form before any team will take a chance on him.

TE-Michael Palmer, Clemson (39), has been selected First Team All-Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2009 college football season as voted on by the 40 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Palmer has 38 receptions for 439 yards and four scores this year. The yardage total is the most ever by a Clemson tight end and the reception total is the second best in school history and just two from the record of 40 set by John McMakin in 1970. Palmer had eight catches for 106 yards against South Carolina last week, the second 100-yard reception game for a Clemson eight end in history. Palmer is the first Clemson tight end to make first-team All-ACC since 1986 when Jim Riggs was chosen. http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=78179&draftyear=2010&genpos=TE

Extremely raw --- Inconsistent and dropped some balls --- Needs to get stronger --- Long ways to go when it comes to technique --- Unrefined as a route runner --- Isn't a dominating blocker --- Average production.
Notes:
Just one season of college football experience --- Was a member of the Hurricanes basketball team from 2005 - 2008, averaging 4.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks --- Turned down an opportunity to play professionally overseas after his hardwood eligibility was exhausted to give football a try --- Ranked second on the team in touchdown catches in 2009 despite not playing the game since his freshman year of high school --- Has all of the physical tools you look for --- Rare talent who will be drafted based almost solely on potential but has the ability to be a superb all-around tight end at the next level --- Probably won't be "The Next Antonio Gates" but may be the closest thing we've seen yet.

20. FS Steven Jackson 6'2"192 lbs.

It took safety Steven Jackson a couple of years to work his way into a consistent role at Ohio. During his freshman campaign, he made two starts and performed well during that time, but made his biggest impact on special teams. His sophomore season was pretty much the same and he only recorded 25 tackles. It was in 2008 when Jackson began turning some heads. He started all 11 games he played in and totaled 71 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and four pass break-ups. For his efforts he was named to the third-team All-MAC squad. That led to higher expectations heading into 2009, and initially Jackson lived up to those expectations by tallying 24 tackles, 1.5 tackles-for-loss and one interception in his first four games of the season. However, he then suffered a hip injury that sidelined him for the remainder of his senior season.
The injury to Jackson has kept him off the NFL radar and at this point he is nothing more than a late round pick. He will have to prove to scouts that he is healthy, but he still only had one productive season in college and it will be difficult for him to move high up anybody's draft board.

Nice job.......My sleeper pick is a guy named Jared Veldheer out of Hillsdale College....he is a beast of an offensive lineman, 6'9" 320 pounds. He should be at the NFL Combines in February...here is a good article on him....he's huge and has great feet:

I'm going to give you a quarterback sleeper. Tyler Sheehan of Bowling Green. He runs that offense cherry, is a big solid strong kid with quick feet and he really pops the mitt on his throws, spins the ball extremely well. He's executed a number of fourth quarter comebacks this year and the bowl game against Idaho SHOULD have qualified...except somehow the Bowling Green defense allowed Idaho to go down the field and score a TD and 2-point conversion with only 30 seconds left in the game.

The kid is accurate and threw some nice deep balls. He's best in the fourth quarter. He runs a pretty complicated offense and has a good feel for the timing necessary. He sees the field and comes off to his 2nd and 3rd reads. He's played in 42 games, is a 65% passer, has accounted for 87 TDs (70 passing, 14 running, 3 receiving) and has 31 INTs for an INT rate about 2.1%. Underrated feet, if I'm running a WCO I look at this kid because he can execute plays that other guys can't. Doesn't panic under fire and can take a shot and shed the would-be sacker. Short, quick delivery at about ear level.

What he needs to work on is keeping his feet under him. They didn't have a very good pass protecting line over there and so he had to work with some real choppy pockets, throwing from all kinds of different platforms. Showed his versatility and arm at times but also showed a propensity to not get his feet under him when he maybe could have. He's got a soft build, he could probably use some more gym work.

When the pressure came and he had to make quick decisions with setting his stance and feet, thats the part that annoyed the most about his game. He had an ATROCIOUS game against Boise State. But he looks good when his line holds up and is able to drive his body and hips into his throw. When he is pressured though, he tends to not set his feet as well.

I didn't see the Boise game but how could it be "atrocious" when he completed 55% of his passes, accounted for 2 TDs and 2 INTs? It's certainly not a banner day but atrocious might be going a bit far. And I think it's more about the coverage than the pressure. He did pretty well against Troy and those boys pressure the passer well and often over there between Cameron Sheffield and Brandon Lang. But Troy doesn't have Kyle Wilson on the outside to help cover Freddie Barnes and the gang.

22. OT Jared Veldheer 6'7"321lbs.


Overview
Recognized as on the best linemen in Division II - named 1st Team AFCA All-American, 1st Team AP Little All-American and Gene Upshaw finalist. Great student (3.0 GPA Bio) and recognized team leader in the weight room and on the field - his efforts led to Hillsdale's first-ever play-off appearance and first play-off win in 2009. Declined Valero Cactus Bowl invitation to play in Texas vs. The Nation bowl game.
Strengths
Dominating size and athletic ability at left tackle. 10.125 inch hands and huge frame reminiscent of Jonathan Ogden. Plays to the whistle. Good footwork and blocking mechanics allow him to get to the defender quickly. Frame will allow him to get even bigger. Self-report of 4.87 and 4.94 40 times (summer, '09).
Weaknesses
Upright pass-blocker who will need to improve as he faces elite competition. Has been able to dominate on strength alone in D-2; may need some time to adjust to next-level defender's speed.
Projection
Some scouts have listed Veldheer as high as the top 3 tackles in the draft. If he performs to his potential at the combine and in his bowl game, he could very well go as high as the 3rd round.

23. OT Casey Knips 6'8"308lbs.

Skinny: Knips has the ideal size (6’8, 308) and runs in the 5.2 range, which is outstanding physical attributes. While he has outstanding potential he is still very raw, plays too high, and is inconsistent. At this point he is a PFA or 7th round type player mainly based on his physical tools but has mid round type potential.
Our View: Knips is a massive man standing a legit 6-8 and weighing 310 pounds, and he is another player that many people won’t be talking about until we get closer to the NFL Draft, but one team has him ranked as their number five overall senior tackle for the NFL Draft. He plays left tackle right now, but projects as a right tackle at the next level. He needs to work on his pass blocking and do better in his pass set to improve his draft stock. His level of competition will be called into question and he needs to show well at the All-Star games to raise his draft stock because of that.

Atrocious compared to his usual play. Atrocious may be taking it too far, but he did not keep his poise during that game. Granted it was Boise State and he's dealing with Bowling Green's offensive line. He's no Omar Jacobs in terms of elusiveness, but he seemed to take longer than usual dissecting the coverage while getting pressured at the same time. I like Sheehan a lot, I think he is a great Sleeper pick. But he seems to me to be strictly West Coast and not of an offense like Air Coryell. He would even thrive in New England's offense as he is pretty damn good at making quick decisions and putting it where it needs to be in all those jerk routes and follow routes and quick routes.

He's a quarterback that has potential to thrive in the right system.

24. QB John Skelton 6'5"258lbs.

Strengths


Arm Strength
Footwork
Escape Ability
Accuracy on deep throws
NFL size

Weaknesses


Lower Release Point
Not very dominant despite low level of competition, but clearly a man among boys.

Skelton is listed at 6'5" and a remarkable 258 pounds, which is roughly 57 pounds more than he weighed when he was a high school senior. That kind of weight growth is normal for a lineman or tight end, but certainly not for a quarterback. Obviously Skelton has been on some kind of weight training regiment to get him in prime NFL shape.
Despite all of the added weight, Skelton remains very mobile and active in the pocket. Upon watching film, he has excellent footwork in the pocket. He moves around very well and reads the pressure like an NFL quarterback needs to. The speed of the game increases in the NFL probably about 20 times as fast as it is in the Patriot League, but he appears to have the correct instincts to make it work.
Another thing I really liked was his quick release and arm strength, especially on deep throws. In the film available online, he hits deep out routes with relative ease, and has great touch on his deep ball. He doesn't put too much air under his passes, which is key at the next level in terms of the speed of the defensive backs.
The only thing that concerns me is a lack of pure dominance at a lower level of college competition. He has over 10,000 total yards in his time at Fordham, but players like Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy have demolished that mark against the top levels of competition. You wonder why Skelton has been unable to do that.
Regardless, if a lack of dominance is the only thing preventing this kid, he should be just fine. If he gets into the correct system at the next level, he could be a star two or three years down the road. He has the size and skills to make it at the next level, and he could be one to watch for on draft day.

He never really lived up to the potential at LSU, but if we could get him in the 6th I think it would be great value.
25. RB Keiland Williams 6'0"221 lbs.

Williams has plenty of talent, but was never a true go-to guy during his career at running back for LSU. Still, he managed to post solid numbers. As a freshman in 2006 he carried 76 times for 436 yards and five touchdowns, and in 2007 he ran 70 times for 478 yards and six scores while splitting time with Jacob Hester. Williams slipped a bit as a junior (83 carries for 417 yards and two scores) when classmate Charles Scott took over primary RB duties. Although he made a wise move to return to Baton Rouge, Williams did not see the decision pay off in terms of helping his draft stock. He suffered a broken ankle against Ole Miss on November 14 to bring a premature end to a disappointing season (although he was averaging 5.3 ypc at the time of his injury). Williams is an explosive back who can also excel at returning kicks, but he needs to improve at running between the tackles. He has the size (6'0 and 221 pounds) to be successful in that capacity, but he has been unable to get the job done on a consistent basis (just like he does when he runs around the ends or catches passes out of the backfield). Williams can run in the 4.4s in the 40-yard-dash and his speed and change of direction ability make him a terror in the open field. He could have been drafted as early as the third round with a clean bill of health, but the injury makes him a question mark. Look for Williams to go off the board sometime on Day 2 of the 2010 draft.

Ali Villanueva (Army) is an interesting sleeper prospect, 6'10'' 280 he started all 12 games at left tackle his junior year then made the switch in the spring to WR where he led the team in receptions, 34. There could be some reluctancy to draft a player from army after the lions took caleb campbell in 2008 and had couldnt keep him in camp due to army requirements.

If he isnt a bill parcells guy than i dont know who is. I saw him play once versus navy after knowing him only as the tallest college football player and came away impressed. He isnt a super athlete but for 6'10'' he has pretty good hands and would be and dreamy frame for a NFL TE.

He'll be playing this saturday at the shrine game (ESPN2 3:00 1/23) Just because of his size I could see a team falling in love with him and taking him in the range of rounds 3-5, but I could also see him going undrafted, Army hasnt exactly been a football factory. I was suprised to see his name on the roster for the shrine game so I will be eagerly watching his every move as if I had one ounce of say in the matter come April.

Prediction; Dolphins 6th round pick.

26. WR Freddie Barnes 6’0”212 lbs.

Barnes did not put up very impressive numbers his first three seasons but had a healthy, productive senior campaign, catching a whopping 155 balls for 1770 yards and 19 touchdowns. Needless to say, he led the nation in receiving. As a result, he may have jumped up from being a potentially undrafted free agent all the way to looking like a possible day one selection.http://www.nfl-draft-site.com/

01/18/2010 - East-West Shrine Monday Practice: Bowling Green State wide receiver Freddie Barnes was one of the stars of the day. He snatched several balls out of the air, adjusting to passes thrown high, low and wide. Toledo strong safety Barry Church found out what it would be like to cover an NFL receiver when Barnes gave him a nice head fake while running down the seam, stopping Church in his tracks and blowing by him. Though Barnes did drop one or two when allowing the ball to get too far into his chest and could be faster out of his breaks, overall he was clearly the best receiver on either squad.http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/archive/1114091

27. WR Taylor Price 6'1"209lbs.

Taylor Price is not very well known outside of the Mid-American Conference (especially since the Bobcats of Ohio would prefer to keep the ball on the ground), but Price has had a solid career in Athens. As a true freshman he was thrown into the mix and caught nine passes for 77 yards, and also returned some kick-offs and punts. In 2007 his role was expanded: He caught 33 passes for 464 yards and four touchdowns, but he did a lot more than that. In addition to catching the ball and returning some kicks, Price also carried the ball six times for 23 yards and threw two passes for 50 yards and a touchdown. In 2008 Price set a school record by catching 14 passes against Wyoming and ended the season ranking fourth all-time catching 51 passes in a single season. Those 51 catches went for 694 yards and five touchdowns. Through 11 games in 2009, Price is putting up similar numbers during his senior campaign. He has 48 receptions for 639 yards and five scores.
Price will continue to go under the radar since he plays on a team that lacks a history of successful receivers at any level. His numbers are not that great and never will be at Ohio, but he is a good receiver who runs good routes and has a decent combination of size and speed. He may not get drafted very high, but he could turn into a decent third or fourth receiver in the NFL.

When he came back was moved to HB/TE to create match up problems for defenses. He has that LB mentality so you know he is going to battle for the ball anytime he goes up for the catch. But the most interesting thing is the fact that he runs a 4.38/40. I think he would be a perfect fit for the unconventional offense we run. He would be a legitimate threat in passing situation out of the wildcat. This guy is worth a look in the later rds. or as an UDFA.
*maybe CK or someone who has access to film can chime on this player?

-Has the potential for good workout numbers, has good strength and an excellent vertical leap
Negatives:
-Inexperienced as a tight end
-Raw, huge project regardless of position

36. WR Pat Simmonds 6'5"227lbs.

Simonds has the ideal physical tools (6’5 3/8, 227) and uses his body well to shield defenders. He also has great hands and runs good routes. His speed does need work, reportedly 4.57, and will have to become more consistent as a blocker. His junior season was very impressive with 65 catches for 1,136 yards and 9 touchdowns. If he can drop .10 off his 40 time he could be a real sleeper to go in the mid rounds because of his physical tools and production alone. Simonds has a 36-inch vertical, 488 squat, and is the most physically ready player they have had for the NFL.http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010-Big-Board/Pat-Simonds.html

38. DT Ko Quaye 6'1"305lbs.

Quaye came to the University of South Dakota as a 255lb lineman, and is now topping the 300lb mark. He spent his first season as a redshirt, then played mostly as a reserve his first two seasons for the Coyotes. He moved into the starting lineup as a junior, and had 44 tackles, 7.5 for loss, and 2.5 sacks to go along with an interception. So far this year through seven games, he has 23 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and half a sack. Quaye is your typical fireplug defensive tackle: his quickness and low center of gravity make it tough for blockers to get a hold of and drive off the line. He is a good athlete and shows the ability to control the line and get penetration to disrupt the action in the backfield. The obvious questions about Quaye stem from the level of compeition and how well he will stack up at the point of attack against bigger, stronger lineman on a consistent basis. He will likely only carry a late round grade, but he’s a player that could provide solid depth along a defensive line at the next level. http://www.footballsfuture.com/2010/sleepers.html

http://www.nfldraftbible.com/Players/List/2010-Big-Board/Pat-Simonds.html

I wouldn't use the term "great" to describe his hands. I wouldn't use the term "good" to describe his routes, either. And if he could shave 0.10 seconds off his 40 time he'd just be a faster player period and that would make him a different player.

The guy is basically a Pat Turner. You throw the ball high and hot to him and he will out-jump a smaller player for it, haul it in...also you throw him the ball on the skinny post, he'll use his body to help haul it in. But otherwise, he doesn't use his head, hips or knees when running his routes...he takes shortcuts.

Some of you might not agree, but with Grove's injury history, I think we need some depth at the C position. Do not slam on the "Sleeper" status. Yes he is rated pretty high, but I do not think that he is really in the public consciousness.
39. C J.D. Walton 6'2"300lbs.

Strengths
Quick brawler with excellent core strength. Plays with a strong base and displays a fine hand punch. Good feet and balance and sticks to his blocks. Plays low with natural leverage and gets some push. Can run some and gets to the second level quickly. Excellent in combo blocks. Good cut-blocker and adjusts well in the open field. Mirrors and slides well in pass protection, and shows the ability to recover.
Weaknesses
Not huge and doesn't have much growth potential. Might have trouble with mammoth NTs.
Projection
Underrated prospect was the best center in the Big-12 and will make
a very nice mid-late round pick. Should be a starter down the road.

Micah Johnson is people dont talk to much about but when he is healthy he is a very good LB
43. ILB Micah Johnson 6'2"258lbs.(*returning for Senior season at Kentucky)

Heralded NFL prospects rarely come out of the University of Kentucky, but that's just what Johnson is doing. The Wildcats scored a major coup in getting Johnson more than three years ago, and his presence has paid off in a major way. The standout linebacker played in 13 games -- starting twice -- as a freshman and was selected to the SEC All-Freshmen Team by the conference's coaches. After a solid sophomore campaign, Johnson recorded 93 tackles as a junior and was a voted a First-Team All-SEC performer by the coaches. Through eight games in 2009 he had 66 tackles, six for loss. A versatile athlete, Johnson even has one touchdown run for his distinguished career. Johnson is an imposing physical specimen -- standing at 6'2'' and 258 pounds -- while being arguably the strongest player on the team. He has decent speed -- around 4.7 in the 40-yard dash -- but he still needs to improve in that area if he wants to be a star at the next level. Johnson is a huge hitter, especially when he gets a full head of steam behind him, but he struggles just a bit at changing direction so he sometimes has trouble against smaller, shiftier running backs. He is not, however, going to get overpowered. Injuries are a minor concern for Johnson, who was sidelined for one full game and part of another in 2008. He was dealing with an MCL midway through his senior season, so it remained to be seen how he finished out the season. Right now Johnson looks to be off the board early on Day 2 of the 2010 NFL Draft. However, his athleticism should provide for a stellar performance at the combine, so moving up is a very real possibility.

44. DE/LB Arthur Moats 6'2"248lbs.

At JMU he played in every game as a true freshman in '06, and compiled 18 tackles. As a sophomore, he played as part of the regular DE rotation and totaled 45 stop and 6.5 QBHs. In 2008 he was a starter throughout the season an was third-team All-CAA and second-team all-state by the Virginia Sports Information Directors Association. Arthur was also the team’s defensive lineman of the year and was No. 3 overall on the team and first among defensive linemen in tackles with 65. He tallied 25 solo stops and team highs of 15.5 tackles for loss and 11.5 quarterback sacks. Moats also broke up a pass and forced three fumbles.
Strengths
Ripped. Fast. Dedicated to his craft. Nice slap and go move. Chops the defender's hands off of him. Stays low and gets upfield very quickly. Times his jump off the snap. Very productive. Has some flexibility, and may be able to convert. Has become better against the run. Natural pass rusher who is in the mold of an Elvis Dumervil.
Weaknesses
Kind of a DE/OLB tweener with no certainty that he can play off the LOS. Short, and lacks some of the incredible explosion that some short NFL DEs of recent memory have exhibited. Still average at the POA in the run game. Can drop into coverage, and while he may be able to convert, he may always be somewhat of a liability in coverage.
Projection
4-5th round type talent who will probably be drafted later because of where he played, and because of the small school bias that still exists in some corners.

45. DT Martin Tevaseu 6'2"328lbs.(it's a pretty good article on the kid)

Tevaseu starting to turn some heads

Martin Tevaseu was walking Tuesday afternoon from the East-West Shrine Game practice field back to the locker room at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. About a hundred feet away, standing next to a car, was Marty Schottenheimer, who was a NFL head coach for 21 years. Schottenheimer won 200 games and he won 61 percent of the time.
Schottenheimer is a NFL legend. Tevaseu had no reason to think Schottenheimer would notice him.
“I've been an underdog my whole life,” Tevaseu said. “I kinda like it that way. I know there were people around here saying to themselves, ‘Who is this kid?'”
In the North Bay we know this kid. We know he went to high school in Anderson Valley. We know he was a star at SRJC. We know Tevaseu is a boulder, 6-foot-2, 328 pounds, and once was even a bigger boulder, weighing 417 pounds. We know Tevaseu, a nose guard, has talent, prime-time talent, but we always wondered if he would display his max self, or would it stay hidden in that massive body.
So Tevaseu was walking back to the locker room when Schottenheimer saw him. The 66-year old coach left the parking lot, ran up to Tevaseu, introduced himself and then said the words Tevaseu will never forget.
“I want to tell you, son,” Schottenheimer said, “you are doing a hell of a job. A hell of a job.” Moments later Tevaseu took a step back to reflect.
Said Tevaseu: “Coming from him ... especially to an unknown guy ... wow ... I guess I'm turning people's heads.”
Since sports, at least the idealized version of it, is the penultimate meritocracy. Talent trumps all. Talent trumps background, bad breaks, personality conflicts, motivation lapses.
Talent is like water, it will seek and find its own level.

46. LB Walter Dublin 6'2"252lbs.
Played at OSU, but had to leave because of his Mom's health. Played in the Arena League at age 19 and was a terror, which is saying something in such an offensive oriented league. The Phins are reported to have an interest in this kid.
Here is some info I got off the CDS message board:

He played largely 'Mack linebacker' in the AF2 he has quick-twitch and good lower body snap, it's clear he's bigger than he he was at OH State but I'd be surprised if he was 6'3" 270 since he was more like 6'1 3/4 257 when John Murphy [who some of us here know] had him worked out. A thought I'd heard he signed a three year contract with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League a couple months ago. I did here his 40s have been in the area of 4.62, he played with the Lubbock Renegades when he was only 19, and the Iowa Barnstormers after that. The most interesting thing to me is that he has helped to found and run a sports management firm SSA Worldwide Inc. with his agent Preston David. There are still many question around a guy that was at Ohio St. and Central Connecticut State University for such a short amount of time but there's clearly raw potential, but he'll need a great deal of patient coaching.http://cdsdraft.com/boards/index.php?showtopic=9440

I think another sleeper is Marc Mariani, WR, out of Montana. He could be gotten in the 7th round or free agency and would have a very good chance of not only making the team but contributing. Looks like another Wes Welker type, excellent hands, deceptive speed, creates separation, and gets a lot of yards after the catch.

DKphin

47. WR Marc Mariani 6'0"185lbs.

Solid 3-year starter for one of the nation's top FCS programs. Marc is a 2005 graduate of Haver High School where he earned 10 letters: three each in football and basketball, and four in tennis. He was named all-state at wide receiver and at safety as a senior and at safety as a junior. He was named to the Great Falls Tribune’s “Super State” team at safety as a junior and at wide receiver as a senior. His senior season he had 48 receptions for 1,237 yards and 16 touchdowns. He served as a team captain as a senior in football. His 2004 football team was 12-0 and the state “A” champion. He participated in Montana’s annual East-West Shrine Game. Mariani was also a team captain his junior and senior seasons in both basketball and tennis.

At Montana, Marc redshirted as a true freshman, and was quite small at the time. in 2006, he played in all the Grizzlie's games, but mostly on special teams. In 2007, Marc led the Big Sky and was 11th in the FCS in punt returns (13.32-yard average). He was also an honorable mention All-Big Sky selection as a returner. In 2008, his career as a receiver really began to take off, as his 1,308 receiving yards for 15 touchdowns are the second most in a season at UM. Mariani also led the Big Sky in punt returns, averaging 16.22 an attempt, which ranked him fourth in the nation. He was ranked 29th in the country in receiving yards per game (81.75). In 2009, he tallied 80 catches for 1479 yards (18.5 ypc) for 13 TDs, and returned 32 punts for a 15.8 average and a TD. He also returned 5 kickoffs for a 39 yard average and another TD.
Strengths
Decent punt returner and possession guy who gets open and uses his hands. Really competes and stretches for the ball. Decent quickness. Good routes and footwork. Knows how to get open. Quick feet and dekes the DB well. Solid punt returner. Understands positioning and use of his body as the ball arrives. FCS's answer to UT's Jordan Shipley. Probably a 4.6 guy, but has some upside and intangibles. Breaks more tackles after the catch than he should for a guy of his dimensions.
Weaknesses
Marginal size and speed. Takes a little time to get to top speed. Stats are excellent but has not done it against top level competition. Shows some toughness but not a real threat after the catch. May have a tough time getting off the LOS at the next level.

51. OG Chaz Millard 6'3"305lbs.

08/04/09 - Difference Maker: Senior Chaz Millard. The guard was named a Preseason All-American by several publications and is a 2009 Preseason All-OVC selection. He is a two-time first team All-OVC selection and two-time honorable mention All-American. Millard graded out at 93 percent last season with 57 de-cleater blocks. He has not allowed a sack in 26 straight games. http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=81365&draftyear=2010&genpos=OG

Still has to be considered the leader of perhaps the best offensive line in FCS football. Playing center this year and has displayed his toughness and versatility for a long time now. Quick off the snap and into his man. Head hunter who keeps a nice wide base in pass pro. Not going for the throat in the run game like I thought he used to. Pulls well and is aggressive on the move. Not a great short yardage or straight ahead drive blocker. Average stamina. Has a lot of what you want. Tough, very well seasoned, versatile, and consistent. Has the look of a career interior backup. GRADE: Slightly positivehttp://condraft.com/boards/lofiversion/index.php/t9260.html

52. DE/OLB Antonio Coleman 6'2"255lbs.

02/11/10 - PRO POTENTIAL: DE Antonio Coleman led the SEC in both sacks and tackles for loss to wrap up his Auburn career, but Coleman's professional future is still questionable. He was plenty big enough to play his position in college, but scouts seem to be mixed on where he'll play in the NFL. A switch to outside linebacker might be in the cards, which would likely require Coleman to drop some pounds and gain some speed. Either way, he'll likely be a third-day pick.
01/28/10 - It was a mystery when the first round of invitations to the NFL Combine went out earlier this month, and Antonio Coleman didn't get one. The senior defensive end was one of the best pass rushers in Auburn history. Now it appears that oversight has been corrected. Coleman, who's trying to impress NFL coaches this week at the Senior Bowl in his hometown of Mobile, told a friend Tuesday that he just got invited to the combine. It's the most important job interview of your life if you hope to play in the NFL. Oh, and there are drills and tests involved, too. The combine will take place Feb. 24 to March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the AFC champion Colts. So far, Coleman and running back Ben Tate are the only Auburn players that are expected to be there, which doesn't say much for the 2009 senior class as a group. In contrast, eight Alabama players so far have been invited to the NFL Combine: Javier Arenas, Terrence Cody, Brandon Deaderick, Mike Johnson, Colin Peek, Leigh Tiffin, Lorenzo Washington and Justin Woodall. The NFL has not yet released the official list of invitees. That list may grow in the coming weeks.http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=57315&draftyear=2010&genpos=OLB

2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
One of the heroes of Utah's stunning blowout of Alabama in the 2009 Sugar Bowl as he made two interceptions to seal the historic win for the Utes. A junior college transfer who went on to have a decorated career at one of the faster rising programs in the nation, Johnson intercepted 4 passes in 2007 to go along with his 44 tackles and 3 passes broken Up (PBU). He was rewarded with an Honorable MWC selection and Bronco Nagurski National Defensive Player of Week. He started 11 of 12 games in 2008, recording 41 tackles and 4 INTs. Johnson is big and strong; Fast (4.52) and agile. Fills the alley fast and bangs in the box. Better-than-average closing speed. Plays the ball in front of him well. Good work habits. Energetic and vocal. A leader.
He is maybe too stiff and high cut. Has trouble changing directions without slowing down. Tends to bite too much on play fakes. Is not a force against the run, despite his size. Needs to refine his coverage skills.
A true Free Safeties with upside, Johnson needs to learn consistency and better technique. Overall, Johnson is a mid range prospect at his position and should hear his name called between the third and fourth round.

54. CB Thad Turner 5'11"180lbs.

Stories like Ohio University's defensive back Thad Turner’s are why I love college football so much.
Players have the opportunity to blossom and grow under the development of their position coaches and coordinators.
A prime example of that is Thad Turner, a Marietta, GA native. He came to OU's football program in 2005 as a former first-team all-state wide receiver.
After redshirting in 2005, he played sparingly in 2006, then was switched to cornerback during Dec. 2006.
Head coach, Frank Solich, and defensive coordinator, Jimmy Burrow, tried to convince him to make the switch, saying they needed more speed at the cornerback position. At the time, Turner was skeptical of the switch, but decided to give it a try anyway.
During the 2007 season, Turner struggled mightily at his new position. He was routinely beat in practices by opposing players in drills and struggled to make tackles in the open field. You wouldn’t have been blamed if you thought Turner should have stayed on offense after all.
Then, in the 2008 season the light came on. The Marietta native made his coaches look brilliant, posting a season that made him the most improved player on the entire Ohio football roster.
Statistically, it might not have been the greatest year, but he did lead the team in one of the most important categories for a defensive back—pass breakups—with six.
Better yet, he had his best performance of the season against the third-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus, Ohio.
Turner played like a man-possessed, making plays all over the football field for the Bobcats. He notched seven tackles and three pass breakups (unofficial) in that game, making life miserable for Ohio State receiver Brian Robiskie and company.
The Bobcats nearly pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college football history, but eventually fell to the third-ranked Buckeyes 26-14.
His spectacular performance against Ohio State was just the tip of the iceberg. He also had a huge game against the Northwestern Wildcats in Evanston, IL.
The redshirt junior posted five tackles, recovered a fumble, and had two pass breakups! It was yet another impressive performance by Turner and yet another indication that coaches made the right move after all.
If you watch his highlight video of one on one drills on YouTube—you’ll see that Turner is no longer getting pushed around by opposing players. He’s much more physical at the line of scrimmage and he’s excellent at re-routing receivers and not allowing them to have the inside release.
Standing at 5'11", 179 lbs. Turner refuses to get outmuscled and plays much bigger than his size. His physicality combined with his speed (4.43 40 yard dash) will likely make him an attractive prospect for NFL scouts for the 2010 NFL Draft. If he keeps improving at the rate he has, the possibilities are endless for Turner. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/143723-ohio-footballs-most-improved-in-2008-db-thad-turner

56. QB Billy Cundiff 6'2"226lbs.


Overview Visited by scouts from 31 NFL teams in '09 after being named GLIAC Offensive POY ('08). Very accurate and productive passer who set almost every Ashland passing record. Great leadership and decision making abilities combine with strong, accurate arm have put him among the top passers in the country in '08 and '09 and making him a Harlon Hill nominee in both years as well.
Strengths
Very strong and accurate passer - protects the ball with only 1 INT against 24 TDs in 305 attempts in '09 (with very young o-line who gave-up 35 sacks). Cundiff's arm strength and good mechanics allow him to make throws other QBs can't. Among NCAA D-2 leaders in efficiency (163.62 in '09) ... excellent character and solid team leader who shows great poise under pressure - led team to first playoff victory in school history in '08. Hard worker who invests time watching film and in the weight room - added 15 pounds in off-season before '09 season to improve his durability.
Weaknesses
Occasionally will 'lock' on a receiver and ignore progression; sometimes tentative - had more of a 'gunslinger' attitude in '08 (37 TDs with 8 INTs) who would 'take more chances' to get the ball to his receivers.

57. RB Keith Toston 6'0"214lbs.

Oklahoma State is not known for their rushing attack, but Keith Toston has been a vital part of the dynamic Cowboy offense. When he is not rushing the ball, he is still involved in the offense by catching a ton of passes out of the backfield or using his 6-0, 214 pound frame to block for his quarterback. Toston came on strong as a true freshman, rushing for 631 yards and six scores. He added two more trips to the end zone on the receiving end. Toston found himself behind Dantrell Savage and Kendall Hunter on the depth chart for most of his sophomore campaign. In the 11 games he played, he only carried the ball 38 times for 190 yards. Making matters worse, Toston suffered a knee injury that ended his disappointing sophomore season. Though in 2008 Toston came back strong. While he was once again stuck behind Hunter on the depth chart, Toston proved to be a solid change of pace back who averaged 6.7 yards per carry and reached the end zone nine times.
Toston finally was the go-to-guy in 2009 and he did not disappoint. He showed that he could be an every down back and ended the regular season with 1,177 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Toston was also second on the team in 2009 with 24 receptions. http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/profile_display.cfm?Prospect_ID=2455

58. ILB Phillip Dillard 6'0"245lbs.


Strengths
Versatile LB who can stuff the run and play the pass. Solid instincts, negotiates trash and plays the game inside out. Good hitter and sound tackler. Strong and rugged. Runs better than he times and can play sideline-to-sideline. Closes quickly. Solid athlete who can run downfield in coverage and will break up passes. Solid blitzer.
Weaknesses
Not very tall and probably maxed out physically. Not the fastest or most explosive athlete. Lacks the agility for man coverage in the NFL. Was in the doghouse in '08, but worked himself out.
Projection
Late-round pick or free agent, but definitely will be in a camp.

Levi matriculated at The University of Oregon during his true
freshman season, and redshirted there before transferring to Montana
the following year. At Montana, in 2006, he played in 10 games at
He was a second team All-Big Sky Conference pick. In 2009, he
started every game at "money tackle" and was named First-Team All
Big-Sky, as well as receiving plenty of All-American notice from various
organizations.
Strengths Ideal body type and size for the position. Seems to relish run blocking, and is found on the 2nd level frequently. Will block two when necessary. Has a bit of nastiness in his game, and is fairly aggressive and physical in his approach to the position. Generally gets the job done pass blocking at the college level as well. Will stay after it, put in the extra time, and will give you full effort and work to improve. Good enough feet to be tried first on the left side.
Weaknesses
Tries to cut block too often and with mixed results. Gets perpendicular to the rush at times and shoved off balance. Lacks speed and quick depth in his pass pro drops. Average feet and technique overall for an LOT candidate. Has a good initial punch, but his recoil is slow and inconsistent. Needs to be more consistent with his pass pro technique and may never get it right.

Breaks down very well in the open field and rarely misses. Goes after the football and forces fumbles. Plays it safe as the last line of defense vs. the pass, but attacks plays in front of him and closes very quickly.
Weaknesses
Not big enough to be a "box" safety. Not used much in man coverage and not a great interceptor, but this may be a product of the defense. Not the fastest or most athletic.

It might be a stretch to call him a sleeper, but he is not generally in the discussion when talking about NTs .
61. NT Linval Joseph 6'6"323lbs.


Overview 1 kick blocked in 2009. 2 kicks blocked in 2008. Mammoth DT who likely won't start as a rookie but should see plenty of action in obvious run-down situations.
Strengths
Huge. Great height. While not exactly and Adonis, he's also not just another TOG (Tub Of Goo) at 320+ pounds. Moves well for his size. Great run stuffer. Can generate a bit of a push as a pass rusher, too. A productive member of the best defensive line in Conference USA this season. Has a knack for blocking kicks. Has been used in "Refrigerator" Perry FB role.
Weaknesses
Could stand to be in better condition. Has a ways to go as a pass rusher. Production came against a lower level of competition.
Projection
Now that the Draft is a three-day affair, Joesph will likely be a third day selection, so it's a bit surprising he declared. Nevertheless, he does have raw tools that, if developed, could make him a starter in the NFL some day.http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=2906

Overview 1st Team All-MAC and Nagurski Award and Lombardi Trophy candidate in 2009. Started 45 of 49 games in his collegiate career. 3 times All-MAC and many other team honors in his career. Recognized team leader.
Strengths
Durable, hard-worker who is among the most experienced nose guards in the draft. Occupies alot of space and able to keep linemen off his linebackers. A solid run-stopper with decent strength and ability to get upfield (5.5 TFLs in 2009) and get tackles in the backfield.
Weaknesses
No sacks in 2009 suggesting his mobility and speed are not at the elite level needed in the NFL. Sometimes does not use leverage properly and keep shoulders low.

64. FS Major Wright 6'1"204lbs.

2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Wright sometimes gets lost in a sea of Florida superstars, but he has been getting the job done in Gainesville for almost three full years now. The free safety played all 13 games as a freshman in 2007, starting seven of them, and started all 14 of his team's games a year later. Wright picked off four passes in 2008 and recorded nine tackles in the National Championship win over Oklahoma -- a big reason why the media named him to the Preseason All-SEC First Team prior to this season. While his game should translate well to the next level, he does not have the size, for example, of Taylor Mays or the speed of Eric Berry. Wright is listed generously at 6'1'' and 204 pounds. He has been clocked in the mid-4.4s in the 40-yard dash and could greatly improve his draft stock if he can get that at 4.40 or faster at next year's NFL combine. Wright had two interceptions through six games of his junior campaign and continued good play could convince him to leave school early. Right now, however, it looks like another season as a Gator would do him some good. If he decides to enter, look for Wright to go off the board during the later stages of the second round. http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/profile_display.cfm?prospect_id=2147

65. OLB Adrian Tracy 6'3"243lbs.


Overview Adrian is a 2005 graduate of Potomac Falls H.S. in Sterling, VA. He earned three varsity letters at a variety of positions, including running back, tight end, linebacker and defensive end for coach Casey Childs. Tracy was also named first team all-district as a senior and was team’s defensive MVP for three consecutive years. He also was a two-year letter winner in basketball and was named district player of the year in basketball as a senior and holds school’s career records for points (723) and rebounds (507). He served as senior class vice president and a SCA representative.
At W&M, he spent the fall of 2005 on the scout team, and as a RS freshman in 2006 he finished second among all league rookies with 70 total tackles and was a two-time rookie of the week selection. That year, Adrian ranked in the league’s top-10 in both tackle for loss (Seventh, 15.5) and sacks (Sixth, 6.0). In 2007, he earned starts in all 11 games and tallied 63 tackles, and led the squad with three sacks. He also led the team in tackles for losses with 9.5. In 2008, he really made a splash while totalling 72 tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss, 10.0 sacks and one blocked kick.
Strengths
Nice size and wingspan. Similar to last years' CAA DE phenom Lawrence Sidbury of Richmond, but is flying further under the radar. Gets our nod as the CAA's top DE prospect narrowly over JMU's Adrian Tracy because of his size and improved play against the run. Makes tackles from the back side. Shows enough quickness and lateral agility to be looked at as a LB, while he has room to get bigger if left as a 4-3 pass rushing end. Comes hard off the edge, and fights down the LOS and ruins the stretch play. Scrapes well. Protects his legs, and plays with energy. Solid citizen.
Weaknesses
Over runs plays at times, and overpursues. May lack the bulk and speed to beat elite NFL OT's if left as an edge rusher. Needs better technique and is still not an elite run defender. Good, not great overall skill set. Slight LOC issues. Can be crushed by bigger run blockers if he gets turned. Still emerging, and may have a ways to go developmentally.

02/04/10 - Texas vs. the Nation, Wednesday: South Dakota State's Danny Batten played inside and outside linebacker this week and might have sealed a draft spot with his ability to handle anything thrown his way. - Chad Reuter, The SportsXchange, NFLDraftScout.com 02/03/10 - Texas vs. the Nation, Tuesday: Batten has been the most impressive of the group, beating Eastern Illinois Chris Campbell - he has flashed good footwork, length and strength at left tackle this week - badly in limited one-on-one work, reading and knocking away a slant route in five-on-seven, and blowing up the fullback in the hole while playing inside linebacker. http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=81434&draftyear=2010&genpos=DE

67. CB Myron Lewis 6'2"202lbs.


Overview Earned Second Team All-SEC recognition in postseason votes by league coaches and Associated Press sportswriters... Entered season on Thorpe Award watchlist. Ranked among the SEC's top five in interceptions (4) and defensed passes (12).
Strengths
Tall, physical corner. Good leaping ability to add to the height factor. Solid tackler. Might well be able to play free safety as he has some experience there.
Weaknesses
Not as quick as you'd like in a straight line and that might hurt him like it did to former Commodore D.J. Moore last year. Gives up a few too many completions for my liking.
Projection
3rd round - has the talent to be a bit higher but will the speed be a issue?http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=3928

68. CB Walter McFadden 5'11"180lbs.

2009 BOWL GAME RISER: Walter McFadden, CB, Auburn: Usually second-team All-Southeastern Conference players don't go under the radar. But McFadden's strong play on the Plains went relatively unnoticed until he intercepted two passes, running the second back 100 yards for a score, in the Tigers' 38-35 Outback Bowl win over Northwestern. In a game where they needed every point they could get against the Wildcats, McFadden's two picks led to 14 points. He added nine tackles and two pass break-ups to those picks, refusing to give up yards after the catch to Wildcat receivers and providing just enough defensive help so RB Ben Tate (104 rush yards, two touchdowns) and sophomore WR Darvin Adams (12 catches, 142 yards, game MVP) eke out the victory.http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=67928&draftyear=2010&genpos=CB

Demaryius Thomas
I really like Ben Tate. I think he fits the kinda back that our collective likes.
Myron Rolle, while he certainly has the intelligence, he was not what I would call dominate at FSU and I watched him all his college career. I am not saying that he is a bad player, but he is overhyped.
Jeff Owens is interesting. He was a starter at UGA until he got hurt and wasn't able to win back the starters role when he came back. I would not be adverse to the pick if we could him in the 4th or 5th. Speaking about losing his job, Kade Weston won the position and is a pro typical NT.
Would not be against bringing in Toby Gerhart, just depends on where he falls.
We will have to see how Demaryius Thomas does at his Pro Day. If he is even able to perform.

69. OLB Dane Fletcher 6'2"244lbs


Overview Dane is a 2005 graduate of Bozeman High School (MT) who stayed home and played for the team he grew up rooting for. He earned "Hawk of the Year" honors after an outstanding career at Bozeman High, and was named 1st-team all-sate linebacker and honorable mention tight end. Dane was chosen for the Shrine and Mon-Dak all-star games and was a Great Falls Tribune Super State selection. He was also an outstanding hockey player for the Bozeman Ice Dogs and was one of the top high school defensive catchers in the Northwest for the Bozeman Bucks American Legion squad.
Dane redshirted during his true freshman season in 2005, before registered 14 tackles, primarily on special teams, in 2006, and broke up a pass. In 2007, as a redshirt sophomore, Dane topping the Big Sky Conference with 19 tackles for loss, and tallied 51 total tackles, 3 sacks, 7 PDs and a blocked kick. In 2008, he missed three games with an injury and still registered 44 tackles, 14.5 for a loss, with 6.5 sacks, two blocked kicks, 2 FFs, and 1 FR, and 5 PDs. In 2009, Dane tallied 67 total tackles, 17.5 TFLs, 7 sacks, a breakup, 2 hurries and 2 blocked kicks.
Strengths
Every father's wish for their daughter. Self made hometown hero with a great motor. Solid initial explosion off the line as a DE. Has enough flexibility, suddeness in his COD, good lateral agility, and the mentality to make a smooth transition to OLB at the next level. Has been very productive in one of the FCS's finest conferences. Speed guy who can fight off the blocks of bigger people with a variety of moves and just plain desire. Great work ethic and dedication to the game. Jumps over chop blocks and is very difficult to cut.
Weaknesses
Looks like he can convert, but that proposition is never a sure thing when projecting people from the FCS level to the NFL. May be a bit too thick and tightly wound at present to be a factor at OLB early on. Will struggle with size and strength if left at DE, and would likely be over-powered at the LOS in the running game. When he allows big people to lock on (not often) he can be stopped effectively.

70. C Mitch Petrus 6’3"304lbs.

Awareness/Reaction: Quick thinker that can make decisions and act on them quickly. Keeps his head on a swivel and understands the complex stunting and blitzing schemes.
Balance: Keeps his feet whether he is stagnant or moving, but will lost control at times. Likes to lunge without his full balance, making him appear to be out of control.
Initial Quickness: Very explosive for a lineman, fires out of his stance with power and speed. Gets to the second level in a blink, reaches top speed in a hurry.
Movement/Space: Has experience at both tight end in fullback, a comfortable mover in space and can react well against the quicker athletes at the second and third level of the defense.
Pass Blocking: Inconsistent. Looks like a star on one play, and a newcomer to the position on the next. Can deliver a strong initial punch, but his hands get too wide and he will get called for a lot of holds. If his initial punch misses, he does not recover well and is often found chasing after a quality pass rusher instead is mirroring him.
Pulling/Trapping: Might be the best lead blocking lineman in the country. Gets out of his stance fast and low, creating a nice pivot point with maximum power. Locates the defender well and is at his best on the move.
Run Blocking: Gives a lot of effort on each play, plays through the whistle. Tries hard to get his hips in to the hole, but will lose track of hands. Too much of a shoulder blocker as he fails to lock on and drive.
Size/Length/Hand Size: Has the wide frame to hold more weight. Solid reach for his size, needs to bulk up his lower half to add power to his game.
Strength/Explosion/Pop: Can deliver a big time pop when his technique and balance are on point. Can send a linebacker airborne when picking up a blitz. Strong player up top that could use more drive power from his base.
Technique: The element of his game that keeps him from being one of the best interior blockers in the class. Can fire out low and put his hat on the numbers, but will stand straight up and get driven back on the very next play. Hands are usually too wide, footwork is choppy at best.
Final Word: Mitch Petrus is one of the more interesting prospects to keep an eye on over the next few years. I talked to an AFC scout about him at the Senior Bowl and he told me that he has never seen a player so up and down in his scouting career at the guard position. He looks like a legit first round prospect one week, and an undrafted free agent the next. He shows tremendous mobility and power and would be a perfect fit for a scheme that implements a lot of zone blocking. Before he sees the field however, he needs to refine his technique and make sure his leverage and footwork become second nature to him. He started off his career as a tight end, was moved to fullback and then to guard, but sat out the 2008 season because of academic ineligibility. With that in mind, it is understandable that he struggled with the week to week performance as a guard in the SEC and now that he has his position for the future in hand, his level of play and consistency will only go up. He will likely be a 3rd-4th rounder that could be one of the league’s best after a couple years of NFL coaching.http://www.newerascouting.com/02/mitch-petrus-scouting-report/

71. RB Curtis Steele 5'11"194lbs.

Overview Steele played two seasons at traditional JUCO power Northwest Mississippi Community College before heading to Memphis to bolster the Tigers' running attack. Coaches liked what they saw immediately, awarding him with the Offensive Scout Team Player of the Year award after his 2007 redshirt season.
That award portended the production the Tennessee native was to have over the next two years. Steele was named the Conference USA Newcomer of the Year and second-team all-conference in 2008, gaining 1,223 yards and scoring seven times. He then averaged a whopping 6.3 yards on his 198 carries in 10 games in 2009, garnering first-team all-conference accolades by running for 1,239 yards and 15 scores despite missing two games and was limited in a third due to an injured left knee.
The show Steele put on late in the season against Tulsa (232 yards, four TDs) and during Texas vs. the Nation practices as a slashing, explosive back convinced scouts he could be worth a shot late in the draft.
Analysis
Inside: Flows through trash, sinking his hips to cut. Used in an east-west running system, but cuts and accelerates between the tackles when given the room to do so. Good vision to set up defenders and bounce outside if he sees an opening. Won't run through NFL linebackers to pick up the tough yard, but will spin off bodies and fall forward when grabbed from behind.
Outside: Good straight-line speed; will explode through an opening and take the ball to the end zone. Hard to catch down the sideline without a perfect angle. A bit upright and long-limbed, but runs with nice balance. Patient when following pulling guard; lets block develop and decides the hole through which to burst.
Breaking tackles: Not a power back, but runs hard enough to run through arm tackles at the line and keeps his legs moving after initial contact. Will get tripped up running through trash. Needs to protect the ball, fumbled three times in 2009 and redshirted in 2007 in part to work on ball security.
Blocking: Good pass protector who plays with a wide base, seeks out contact and extends arms to latch on and sustain against bigger defensive ends and linebackers. Will also lower the shoulder to stop oncoming blitzers, but that won't work in the NFL.
Receiving: Not used a lot in the passing game, but appears capable of catching screen passes and also be effective over the middle. Secures the catch before heading upfield, using his vision and shifty hips to find the available space.
Intangibles: Team captain. Has earned teammates' and coaches' respect by his work in the classroom, weight room and on the field.

72. CB Perrish Cox 6'0"195lbs.

Strengths:
Terrific natural athleticism --- Ideal height and bulk --- Excellent speed with a burst to close and recover --- Quick and agile with nice change of direction --- Good leaping ability --- Soft hands and outstanding ball skills --- Superb instincts and awareness --- Smooth with fluid hips to transition --- Excels in both man and zone coverage --- Physical at the line --- Will tackle and support the run --- Elusive with great vision --- Is very confident with a short memory --- Also a prolific kick/punt returner.

Weaknesses:
Has some character issues --- Can be too aggressive at times and will gamble --- Footwork leaves something to be desired --- Tends to get tall in his backpedal --- Is not a real reliable tackler --- Takes some bad angles --- Short arms and small hands --- Durability might be a concern.

Notes:
Was a three-year starter for the Cowboys --- Named 1st Team All-Big 12 in 2009 --- Averaged 24.0 yards with 4 touchdowns (the Big 12 record) on 117 kick returns and also averaged 11.6 yards with 2 touchdowns on 60 punt returns during his college career --- Missed two games with an injury as a freshman and also dealt with injuries as a senior --- Already has three children --- Arrested in the Fall of '09 on charges of driving with a suspended license --- Was suspended for the Cowboy's Cotton Bowl appearance as a senior after missing a curfew, which ended his college career --- Supremely talented and possesses first round physical tools but isn't technically sound and intangibles are shaky --- Must keep his head on straight and get coached up a bit but has the ability to be a starter as well as a great return man in the NFL. http://www.draftcountdown.com/ScoutingReports/CB/Perrish-Cox.php

73. FS Michael Newton 5'11''202lbs.

03/04/10 - University of Buffalo safety Mike Newton made a strong impression on NFL scouts during his campus Pro Day workout today, according to a league source. Newton ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.48 seconds, also registering a 41-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot broad jump. Per our source, the Indianapolis Colts displayed the most interest of the dozen teams that attended the workout. Also showing strong interest in Newton were the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints. Newton, who registered 85 tackles and two interceptions last season as a second-team All-Mid-American Conference selection, has been projected as a sixth or seventh-round pick. This workout could help boost his stock, though. The 5-foot-10, 197-pounder's vertical leap was the same as USC standout Taylor Mays. Newton also posted a 6.94 three-cone drill and a 4.17 20-yard shuttle. His bench press numbers weren't very high with only nine repetitions of 225 pounds. Also attending the workout: the New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders. - Aaron Wilson, National Football Post
12/04/09 - 2009 ALL-MAC SECOND TEAM: Defensive Back - Mike Newton, Buffalo, has been selected to the Mid-American Conference Second Team for the 2009 college football season. Newton was a second-team selection for the second straight year. The senior safety had 85 tackles, including a team-best 52 solo efforts. He added two interceptions, eight pass breakups and a pair of fumble recoveries. He was named MAC East Division Defensive Player of the Week following the Bulls' win over Akron.

Michigan State Hgt:6022 Wgt:209 40:4.51 Arm:31½ Hand:9¼ Reps:18http://www.draftcountdown.com/features/ScoutingCombine/positions/WR.php

02/28/10 - Michigan State wide receiver Blair White said he had received "mixed feedback" from NFL teams. "I think one of the main things I've heard is that a lot of people think I'm just a possession receiver at the next level," White said. "It's tough trying to overcome that stereotype, because I think I'm better than that and I disagree. But I just have to go out there and let my performing do the talking for me." White said he had been working hard on his speed. The receivers run Sunday. White said his goal would be to break 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash. "You are probably thinking, 'Is this guy crazy right now?' " White said. "But that's fine. That's how I like it, and that's kind of how it's been my whole life, doing things people don't think I can do." - Nicholas J. Cotsonika, The Detroit Free Press http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=74634&draftyear=2010&genpos=WR


Overview
Blair White accepted an invitation to play in East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 23 in Orlando. This will be a great opportunity for White to raise his stock for the NFL Draft in April 2010. The East-West Shrine Game, a college All-Star game, one of several that only include seniors hoping to impress NFL scouts. White led the Spartans in catches 64, receiving yards, 876 and touchdowns, with 8 this season and was named First-Team All-Big Ten by the media. White also was successful in the classroom and was named an Academic All-American with a 3.89 GPA. It’s been quite a run for White, a former walk-on. He broke out at the end of last season with big games against Michigan and Wisconsin and became one of the Big Ten’s top receivers this season. Due to a perceived lack of production during his first three years as a Spartan, NFL teams will need to see him continue to improve. If he can finish strong and run a good time at the NFL Combine he will be drafted.
Strengths
Blair has a large catching radius and he can use his size to attack the ball against smaller defensive backs. He's also much quicker than he looks, and can beat defensive backs deep when they're least expecting it. White's experience as a special teams player his first two years at Michigan State may also prove valuable to an NFL team. He's shifty enough to return punts and can play as a gunner on the punt unit.
Weaknesses
Not a blazer and despite having good size he's not very strong, he will need to improve in defeating press coverage.
Projection
A mid to late round selection, for him it's all about post-season workouts.

75. OT/OG Chris Scott 6'5"346lbs.

2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
One of the more experienced offensive linemen in college football, Scott ended his Tennessee career having made 39 consecutive starts -- tied for the team lead with star safety Eric Berry. After redshirting in 2005 and playing seven games as a sophomore in 2006, Scott started every game from the start of his sophomore year to the end of his senior campaign. Part of an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the SEC last season, Scott also paved the way for Montario Hardesty to rack up 1,345 rushing yards. The Riverdale, GA native enjoyed a great year, although he struggled with Virginia Tech's talented defensive ends in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Scott has great size at 6'5'', 346 pounds and he has been clocked as fast as 5.22 in the 40-yard dash. A versatile lineman, Scott played at both guard and tackle during his career as a Volunteer. He was invited to partake in the recent East-West shrine game and by all accounts made the most of the opportunity. Scott could improve his pass-blocking technique and he probably does not have the agility to be a staple at left tackle in the NFL, but he does have the potential to be an eventual starter. Look for Scott to go off the board sometime around the fifth round of the upcoming draft. http://www.fftoolbox.com/nfl_draft/profile_display.cfm?prospect_id=2276

Everything I have been reading says that he would be 3-4 DE, but I think he could hold up at NT. He certainly has the size to play nose. When UF played the Tide, more often than not, I was more impressed with his play at DT than Cody.
77. DT/DE Brandon Deaderick 6'4"314lbs.

Brandon Deaderick/DT/Alabama: Deaderick is a tough, interior defender who effectively handles several duties up front. He has an NFL-type body and offers potential at tackle or as a two-gap end. Deaderick was slowed by injury early in the season, which occurred off the field, then came on strong late in the year. Against Texas he must display the ability to pressure McCoy, something that's not been his forte'. Fourth round.

While not technically what I would call a sleeper, I like this guy. While he is not overly athletic, I think Edds would be the perfect adjunct to an earlier OLB picked up in earlier rds. Not an athletic freak, Edds uses his noggin to figure out how to make plays on the field and help his team, something I deem as pretty important.
78. OLB A.J. Edds 6'3.5"243lbs.


Overview AJ Edds was honored as second team All Big Ten in 2009, and also was named to the academic All Big Ten team for the third straight year. He was also selected to play in the 2010 Senior Bowl. Had a very good senior season, racking up 78 tackles including 4.5 for loss. He also added 5 INTs.
Senior Bowl Measurements - arm: 32.5" hand: 9.9" Notes: Very good shape, strong frame.
Strengths
AJ Edds is a consistent player who doesn't get a lot of hype, but is always in the right place at the right time. His biggest asset may be his size, at nearly 6'4" and 240#, he can take on the bigger pass-receiving TEs. He's particulary effective in coverage, showing a good drop and exceptional read and react abilities. He doesn't take unnecessary steps and knows what the offense is doing. Does best when he's able to keep the action in front of him. He's a form tackler who squares up well, and then wraps up the ball-carrier. Understands and applies all of the fundamentals consistently. Edds is a durable player as well. Has decent straight-line speed to be an effective edge rusher, although he wasn't asked to blitz at Iowa.
Weaknesses
Edds has some athletic limitations, such as lateral agility and ability to change direction smoothly. He's also not a terribly powerful player for his size and needs to add more functional strength to take on blockers. He's not a quick twitch athlete and relies on intelligence and instincts to succeed. Doesn't always play with good balance and can be knocked off the play too easily. Becomes a liability in pass coverage when he's asked to turn and run with a receiver.
Projection
Edds is not going to be outworked on the field, in practice, or in the books, but athletic limitations will keep him out of the first couple days of the draft. He could bulk up and be a solid backup at SLB in a 4-3, or could work on his flexibility and speed and be a 3-4 OLB. Look for Edds to hear his name in the 5th or 6th rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft.

79. OT Jeff Linkenbach 6'6"313lbs.


Overview Not highly regarded by most, but I liked him when I saw him, which was multiple times.
Strengths
Excellent size. Athletic for his size. Experienced starter at left tackle. Has faced some top DE prospects (George Selvie, Carlos Dunlap, etc...) and held his own. Strikes me as a poor man's Jake Long. Doesn't necessarily look pretty, but gets the job done. Gets a push in the run game.
Weaknesses
Not a dancing bear. Lacks the athleticism you'd ideally like to see in a pro LT. Not a maler. Needs some technique work.
Projection
The consensus seems to be that he's a late-rounder at best, but I personally like him more than that.http://cdsdraft.com/profile.php?id=4491

Deaderick and Lorenzo Washington are two of the more underrated defensive lineman in the draft.....neither are worth more than 4th round pick...but both can play...especially in a 2-gap system....and are versatile...

They can both play end in a 2 gap, 3-4 system, and also move inside in a 4 man front...

Deaderick can be flat out dominant at times.....one of his best games I've ever seen him play was the 2008 SEC CG against the crocs....every time Tebow tried to run, Deaderick was there to bring him down for little or no gain...

Linkenbach was pretty much destroyed by Carlos Dunlap...

80. RB James Starks 6'2"217lbs.


Overview Surgery to repair torn labram sidelined him for all of 2009. He averaged 141 all-purpose yards per game in 2008 with 1333 yards rushing (4.9 yards per carry) and 361 yards receiving (52 catches) with 17 TDs - earned 1st Team All-MAC honors as he led Bulls to their first MAC championship. Recruited as a quarterback, he played at cornerback, then went on set the school record for yards (3140) and TDs (34) in just 3 seasons as a running back.
Strengths
Strong, versatile back with great hands and speed. Great vision and ability to hit the hole. Excellent receiver out of the backfield (team second leading receiver in '08). Hard worker who spends time in the weight room.
Weaknesses
Has sat out entire 2009 season - must show shoulder is healed. Will have that chance at the NFL combine.

Jones may come from a small school but his talent is very big, which is why NFL scouts are very familiar with his name. He has good size and is a powerful athlete after the catch. Jones has good hands but he isn’t the most gifted route runner at this point in time.
Jones will need some good coaching but he’s got a ton of talent to work with and he also brings kick returning ability to the table. He’s going to have to work hard at the next level but could fit in well for a team that’s ready to coach up some receiving talent.http://www.rookiedraft.com/?p=978

82. WR Scott Long 6'2"216lbs.

Scott Long, the University of Louisville's leading receiver last season, rang up some impressive numbers at the National Football League Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this past weekend. Long finished first among wide receivers in the vertical jump (41.5 inches), three-cone drill (6.45 seconds) and 60-yard shuttle (11.06 seconds). He tied for first in the bench press with 20 repetitions of 225 pounds. His composite score was the best of the wide receivers at the combine. “Not many people knew who I was this weekend, and I was able to get that opportunity to go out and compete with the best and put up some pretty good numbers,” Long said. “I kind of started out at the bottom, kind of an underdog. I think I helped myself.” Long finished second among wide receivers in the 20-yard shuttle (4.09 seconds), which tests a player's lateral quickness and explosiveness in a tight area. He was fourth in the broad jump (10 feet, 3 inches) and seventh in the 40-yard dash (4.46 seconds). Long's performance in the three-cone drill, which tests a player's ability to change directions at high speed, was especially gratifying. “I was able to set an all-time combine record in that,” Long said. “That was pretty exciting.” A 6-foot-2, 216-pound receiver from Southport, N.C., Long caught 53 passes for 727 yards and two touchdowns last season. His career totals were 91 catches, 1,286 yards (a 14.1-yard average) and four TDs. The NFL draft is set for April 22-24. Long said he expects to arrange private workouts with NFL teams before then. - C.

83. OT Kyle Calloway 6'7"317lbs.


Overview Kyle Calloway earned second-team All Big 10 honors for his efforts in 2008 and again in 2009 and was named to the East-West Shrine Post-Season Game roster. He started 11 games at RT for the Hawkeyes before starting at LG for the bowl game. As a junior, he started at RT in all 13 games. In 2007, he started every game and played LT in all but one where he started as RT. As a RS freshman in 2006, he saw action in a pair of games as a LG. He was a star basketball player in high school, including recognition as an All-Conference selection at center as a HS junior.
Strengths
Calloway is gaining traction as a NFL RT prospect. He certainly possesses the size and strength and is a very effective run blocker. He has a very powerful initial punch and is lights out once he locks onto a defender. He plays with a nasty streak and plays to the whistle. Understands his assignments and shows the power to drive block. Moves well enough to pull and slip out to the second level. In pass pro, he possesses a good anchor to handle bull rushers and plays with good leverage and balance. His offensive teams have always been very productive running the ball behind him. He's very experienced at more than one position and has proven to be a very durable player over the long haul.
Weaknesses
Struggles mightily with speed rushers as he lacks the athleticism and agility to change direction quickly when the defender counters with an inside move. He also struggles to block a moving target in space. Calloway is not particularly quick off the snap either, and will allow the quick-twitch defensive ends to get into him before he's fully set. Finally, he missed the season opener as a senior because of an off-season DUI charge (he was riding a moped). This was his only red flag incident, so it shouldn't be scrutinized too heavily.
Projection
Calloway is rising boards as he's a very reliable and servicable player who looks like he could be an NFL RT for 10 years or more. He also offers the versatility to handle a move to OG or even LT in a pinch. Look for him to be a late third to mid fourth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

84. OLB Blaze Soares 6'1"247lbs.
Soares worked out with Triple Threat Performance after the combine. He got his body fat down to 8.4% and raised his weight from 236 to 247lbs. He reportedly wanted his 40 time to improve from 4.74 to 4.6. There is no report that he had accomplished this, but that was his goal.


Overview All WAC 1st Team LB in 2009 - led team with 107 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, 2 sacks and 1 INT. Fourth leading tackler in the WAC and also named team's 'most inspirational' award winner in '09. Decided not to petition for additional year after sitting out with a torn ligament in his lower left calf in 2008. Played at Texas vs the Nation with little acclaim; practice week was not exceptional either.
Strengths
Great hitter with will and desire to make the play. Inspiring team leader who makes teammates play harder. Has shown great work ethic to recover from injury last year. Productive tackler who gets in the play. Also listed as long snapper on TVN roster.
Weaknesses
Lost 25+ pounds after injury and size suggest OLB may be his spot in NFL. Does not demonstrate the speed needed for the position, but his 40 times have been coming down.

Overview One of the more productive backs in FCS, and he did it for one of the elite programs, year-in-and-year-out, at that level.
Outstanding Pro Day results to go along with a solid showing at the Texas v. The Nation Game, have out Deji into solid contention for a late draft selection.
At his Pro Day on 3-11-10 he ran a 4.37 in the 40, vertical jumped 43", broad jumped 10'3", and did 19 reps.
Strengths
Fast, and has some power for his size. Can run the middle a bit. Has shown the ability to step up in competition and still shine. Hard worker. Dedicated.
Weaknesses
Looks to bust too many plays wide, where he won't be so special doing that at the next level. Lacks elite balance and natural HB moves in the openfield. Questions abound about his blocking and hands.

86. NT Darryl Jackson 6'1"310lbs.

Kean U. nose tackle Darryl Jackson working to achieve NFL dream

By Jenny Vrentas/The Star-Ledger (http://connect.nj.com/user/jvrentas/index.html)

March 09, 2010, 7:00AM

http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2010/04/footballplayerdarryljacksonofkeanunivers-1.jpg Kean nose tackle Darryl Jackson hopes to make the jump from Division 3 to the NFL. Jackson has a Pro Day Tuesday at TEST Sports Club in Martinsville.Last August, after a late-night practice during training camp, the Kean University football coaches were holed up in the basement of Harwood Arena until the early morning hours. Close to 1:30 a.m., while they were going over scripts for the next day’s practice, they heard a rumbling outside their meeting room.

They peered into the hallway and discovered Darryl Jackson — their star senior nose tackle — pushing carts of dirty jerseys down the hall.
“What the heck are you doing?” head coach Dan Garrett asked.
“Laundry,” Jackson said with a shrug.
This was the guy who plugged up the middle of the Kean defense. The guy who swallowed up blockers sometimes three at a time. He was the talent who drew dozens of scouts to Union last year, from all but three or four NFL teams. But in Division 3, that job doesn’t come with a scholarship.
So Jackson did laundry for the equipment manager, stealing time at night between summer two-a-days. He collected tickets at soccer and basketball games. He bounced at a nightclub on weekends, and delivered beer in the summers. Seeing scouts reminded him there may be a future at the next level, but he stayed locked in on the present.
“I don’t want to jinx myself, you know what I mean?” said Jackson, who will work out Tuesday at his Pro Day at Total Energy Systems Training Sports Club in Martinsville. “I’m kind of superstitious. I’m not there yet.”
Perhaps that’s because the 22-year-old has learned little in life comes with a guarantee. As a senior at Red Bank High, interest from schools like Rutgers and UConn dissolved when he didn’t qualify academically for Division 1. Four years later — with his resolve deepened after the death of a close friend last fall — now is the time for Jackson to achieve his pro ambitions.
The leap from Division 3 to the NFL is no doubt a quantum one, and since 1996, just 10 players from that level have been drafted into the league. But Jackson’s agent, Darin Morgan — who also represents Texans defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, a former top-10 pick — believes Jackson could sneak into the later rounds of next month’s draft. At worst, he expects Jackson to get his shot as an undrafted free agent.
“I really, truly hope it works for this kid, because not only does he warrant a look, he deserves it,” Garrett said. “What would it mean to us? It’s probably something similar, on a scaled-down version, to what (Colts receiver) Pierre Garçon means to Mount Union.”
• • • 
Garrett first met Jackson in an old physical education office at Red Bank, sporting a Fu Manchu mustache and an up-front approach: “I know you have bigger things on the table,” Garrett said, “but if those bigger things don’t work out, we’d love to have you.”
Those bigger things hit the speed bump of the NCAA Clearinghouse, which required a combination of grades and SAT scores that Jackson did not meet. He didn’t consider junior college. He considered Kean.
Jackson had lost out on a Division 1 scholarship, but Garrett had gained his cornerstone. The defensive-minded coach implemented a 3-4 scheme, with Jackson as the nucleus. His class had unprecedented success at Kean, earning as many wins in four years (28) as the program had over the prior 12, and playing in more postseason games (3) than in the previous three-and-a-half decades.
No one delighted in Jackson’s success more than his grandmother, Ella Mae Frink, who caravanned up the Parkway for every home game with her twin sister, her niece and Jackson’s baby nephew.
“We don’t have much money, and I felt so bad I didn’t,” said Frink, who worked for two decades as the custodial staff supervisor of the Tinton Falls School District. “But he worked his way through the whole four years and still accomplished it all. That’s one reason I say, there’s no more like him.”
Frink has been the constant presence in Jackson’s life, helping his mother raise him when he was a kid too big to play Pop Warner, and caring for him while he finished at Red Bank after his mom had moved to North Carolina. His parents split up before he was born, and his father, Darryl Jackson, Sr., entered his life again late in high school.
Jackson’s senior season at Kean was his best and, midway through last fall, Garrett said Jackson found the groove of “a man possessed” as the Cougars won eight straight games. But Jackson’s purpose on the football field took on a different dimension in early November, one for which he wasn’t prepared.
Days before Kean’s last regular-season game against rival Montclair State, Jackson and his close circle from Red Bank received a message on Facebook. It was from Sean Hocutt, one of their best friends, who was in the Navy and living in San Diego.
“I know I haven’t been in touch,” he wrote, “but I just want to say, ‘I love you.’”
Jackson soon learned Hocutt had taken his life.
Jackson retreated to Garrett’s tiny, 8-foot-by-8-foot office the next morning. He stayed there for hours, talking a little and crying more. He shut down for those few days, and thought how he could honor his friend by living out those hopes they had once shared on the practice field at Red Bank.
He took the field that Saturday and played one of his best games all season, even though Kean lost, which still makes him both sad and sick.
“It motivates me a lot, that’s why I think it was so tough to lose that last game,” Jackson said. “It’s motivation to make me accomplish more; to get to the NFL. I want to do it.”
• • • 
Jackson’s determination has been clear this winter, as he’s shuttled between Kean, where he is taking five classes toward his degree in community recreation, and Martinsville, where he is training six days a week.
The Eagles and Giants were the first teams to send scouts to Kean last spring, when Jackson weighed-in at 349 pounds and clocked 5.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash. But since then, he has morphed.
He is now a lean 310 pounds. He has been timed as low as 5.18 in the 40. He has tripled his reps on the 225-pound bench press. The Division 1 perks he missed out on — regimented nutrition and supervised lifts — he’s taken advantage of this winter.
“He was very blessed, but very raw,” TEST founder Brian Martin said. “It was a project that was worth it.”
Indeed, perhaps because of his endearing humility and easy smile, Jackson has a wide web of support.
Former West Virginia defensive tackle Skip Fuller, part of the TEST staff, volunteered for extra one-on-one sessions with Jackson every Saturday. Curtis McGriff, the former Giants defensive tackle, works with him once a week on technique — and raves about his quick first step and hand moves.
Morgan took a chance on Jackson because he thought he had “the total package of talent and character.” And Steve Colson, a philanthropist from Warren and TEST member, was impressed enough after a brief meeting with Jackson that he asked to be a sponsor for him.
Jackson has felt like a top prospect these past few months, and his confidence has grown after discovering he can keep up with the players from programs like Penn State and Stanford he has been training alongside.
It just takes one NFL team to agree — and the Jets, Eagles, Packers and Vikings have taken particular interest in Jackson. Morgan declined to speak to feedback from individual teams, but did estimate Jackson is on the radar of at least half the teams in the NFL, for both 4-3 and 3-4 schemes, and multiple teams have taken numerous visits to see him.
Along with his Division 3 roots, Jackson’s height — he is only 6-1 — is a potential knock against him. But he has been inspired by another undersized tackle: Rutgers’ Eric Foster, who also trained at TEST. During the Super Bowl, when Foster was in on a goal-line stop for the Colts, Jackson promptly texted Martin.
“E Foster!” he wrote.
“You’re next,” Martin sent back.
At the thought, Jackson’s easy grin becomes even easier. With every load of laundry he tossed into the machine, this is the dream he hoped would come out in the wash.

87. TE Clay Harbor 6'3"252lbs.


Overview Had an amazing senior season for the Bears, racking up the most receiving yards of any FCS TE in the country, while amassing 59-749, 4 TDs.
Strengths
Elite pass catcher with very good hands. Fast. Smart and very articulate. Football smart and will gobble a playbook. Good separation quickness and can really find the seams in a defense. Gives solid effort when asked to block. Just enough size and speed to be used as a move TE. Can also be looked at as a FB or H-back. Has even played safety in the past. Very productive in college. Very good ups (37"). Strong (benches 460, squats 570.) Would blow up the combine if he gets invited.
Weaknesses
Smallish for an NFL TE, and may suffer when asked to run block on a consistent basis. Does not possess the type of speed that will stretch NFL defenses the way he was able to do that in college. Marginal overall package for the pro game. Lacks growth potential and upside.
Projection
5-7th rounder, unless a small-school bias snares him.

Overview Started 12 games in 2009 and led the team in tackles. Combine participant who had a fine showing.
Strengths
Very physical player with the ideal frame/build for the NFL. Complete safety who can thump in the box and run the deep middle vs. the pass. Big hitter and a reliable open-field tackler. Closes hard vs. the run. Strong and plays with leverage. Nice instincts and good range. Has hands for the pick. Can cover TEs & RBs man-to-man, and has a nice feel in zones. Plays on special teams.
Weaknesses
Not huge for a safety and lacks top-end speed. Not agile enough to cover WRs or play in the slot. Didn't have the same impact in '09 as he had in prior seasons.
Projection
Mid-round pick who's ticket will be special teams. Probable starter down the road.

89. CB Scotty McGee 5'9"190lbs.


Overview Scotty is a 2005 graduate of Ocean Lakes H.S. in Virginia Beach, VA. Scotty was named a First-team all-district and all-region and second-team all-state as an Ocean Lakes senior. He ran for 1,304 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior and 1,336 yards and 13 touchdowns and had a 240-yard game as a junior. He was also named all-district and second-team all-region as a junior.

At JMU, Scotty was a starter at one CB spot as a RS freshman in 2006 and had 45 tackles, 5 PDs and a pick. As a RS soph in 2007, he tallied 18 tackles, and 4 PDs, but started to really make a name for himself as a KR after returning his second kickoff for a TD. In 2008, he went 30-6-1 and also returned another kickoff for a TD, and added punt returning to his resume, returning three for a TD including the decisive points with one second remaining in a 38-31 win at Richmond with his punt return for a score. Scotty also ignited JMU’s rally from a 21-0 deficit with his 99-yard scoring return to open the second half vs. Appalachian State.
Strengths
Deadly punt returned and kickoff returner who can come in and make many rosters with that skill set alone. Improving cover corner who has shown progression in terms of technique and recognition every year at J.M.U. Plays bump and run and has the speed to cover his sins. Breaks up a lot of passes. Both quick and fast. One of the top 3-4 return specialists available for the NFL draft. Good kid who works at it.
Weaknesses
Lacks size and nastiness to be much of an enforcer in the run game. Can be beat up and abused by big WRs. May never be more than a dime back, and/but doesn't show consistent hands for the pick. May find that the running lanes close a lot more quickly in the return game at the next level, and is no sure thing for a roster spot even as a returner. Will never be a starting corner for a decent NFL defense.
Projection
5-6th rounder based on return ability. Free agent as a CB...combined probably a 7th rounder or priority UDFA.

How about Riley Cooper - prolly a 4th or 5th round selection.

I don't think he is a real sleeper. I know I have some guys that are rated pretty high on here and may not be sleepers to GMs, but they are guys that are not talk too much about. Maybe it is because I follow the Gators, but Coops name comes up a lot. The one knock I have on Coop is that he does not get separation from the defender. I think UF's scheme kind of hides this fact. But he definitely has the size and speed.

90. OLB Aaron Morgan 6'4"242lbs.

Louisiana-Monroe hybrid pass rusher Aaron Morgan has been graded as a potential fifth-round to sixth-round draft pick on some NFL teams' draft boards, according to league sources.
Morgan has conducted a private workout for the San Francisco 49ers, per a source close to the program.
He's drawing interest from the Oakland Raiders, New York Giants New Orleans Saints, 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins.
Morgan has recovered from a pulled hamstring that prevented him from running the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day workout.
At NFL teams' request, Morgan recently ran his time trial again at Speed Works and turned in a 4.74 clocking. It was recorded on a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vsPma_8kE4).
Then, Morgan ran in the high 4.6 range in a workout for an undisclosed NFL team earlier this week.
He also posted a 6.84 in the three-cone drill and a 4.21 in the 20-yard shuttle.
Morgan is a sleeper who's gaining some buzz in NFL scouting circles.
Monroe is a 'tweener outside linebacker-defensive end who was named first-team All-Sun Belt Conference.
And his impressive workout numbers stack up favorably with many of the top defensive end-linebacker draft prospects.
The 6-foot-4, 242-pounder has run between 4.68 and 4.72 seconds in the past.
He bench presses 375 pounds.
And he has bench pressed 225 pounds 26 times, posted a 40 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 10-07 broad jump, a 4.13 short shuttle and a 7.14 three-cone drill.
Last season, Morgan registered nine sacks, also posting 17 tackles for losses, 52 tackles and one interception. Here's a link to his highlight video (http://www.youtube.com/watch#%21v=Z_wsNG1cqgI&feature=related).
For his career, Morgan posted 22 sacks.
