    1. Matt Barkley QB USC 6'2" 230
    Analysis
    His understanding of the USC offense is greatly under-appreciated. While he's not quite Andrew Luck, when breaking down Barkley it is clear he does so many of the "little" things well, like rolling either to his left or right and consistently firing accurate passes on the move or freezing the safeties by looking one direction and passing the other..
    Some will knock his size, "average" arm strength or the fact that he has never faced SEC competition. While Barkley is a touch shorter than scouts would prefer, I've had numerous sources who saw him in person at the Manning Passing Academy tell me he showed greater zip than expected, though I'd like to see him improve his accuracy on the deep ball.
    Barkley can only play the opponents his team has scheduled and with the Trojans ineligible for bowl games over the past two seasons, he's been limited in the number of differing teams he's faced. Mobile, accurate and, perhaps most importantly to success in the NFL -- incredibly poised -- Barkley walks into the 2012 college football season as the top prospect in the country.

    2. Montee Ball RB Wisconsin 5'11" 215
    Strengths: Ball is a very powerful back who will fight through arm tacklers and roll to the endzone. As you can see from his numbers, Ball is a very productive rusher and a touchdown machine. Ball will pick up yards after initial contact as a result of his excellent pad level. Ball has great vision and will always find the open holes.
    He is a one-cut runner and that is what NFL scouts like to see from a college back.
    He is an every down back that will also produce in the passing game and contribute as a pass blocker. Ball is a very hard-worker and uses his resilience to finish runs falling forward. His physicality will translate well to the NFL game.
    Weaknesses: Ball has the power but he lacks the long speed. He is able to hit the hole hard but he needs to show that he has the second gear that would allow him to pull away from defenders. Ball also needs to prove that he is not just a product of an outstanding Wisconsin offensive line. While he is solid in multiple aspects of his game, there is still plenty of room for Ball to improve.
    Overview: Ball is the best Wisconsin running back prospect in the past few years. He has benefited from playing behind a dominant offensive line but donít let that take away from what he has achieved. Ballís vision allows him to be a one-cut runner and that is what NFL scouts like to see. It is just up to him to prove that he is not a product of the Wisconsin line. With four new starters along the unit, he will be given every opportunity this season to prove that he is the real deal.
    Currently, Ball looks like a third-round prospect with the ability to jump into the high second-round.

    3. Keenan Allen WR California 6'3" 210
    Strengths: He has great size that he uses quite well. Physical. Very athletic and nimble on his feet. Strong enough to win battles and jump balls. Able to beat the jam at the line. He is also very elusive for how big he is. Dangerous with the football in his hands; very good after the catch. Playmaker. Plays the ball very aggressively in the air. Shows really good speed. Has good football awareness. Can return punts. Leader. Loads of potential. Experience.
    Weaknesses: Suffered an ankle injury this past spring, didnít cause him to miss any time though. Catches the ball with his body too much for my liking. Ball security needs improvement. I believe route running will need to be better in the pros.
    Summary: Allen, whoís coming off a tremendous season, with 98 receptions 1,343 yards and 6 TDs; is one of the most heralded receivers in the country. He enters this season with high expectations and will need to continue to dominate or risk falling down draft boards. Allen, who played as a true freshman, possesses great speed and ability though, and he looks to be poised for another terrific season. He is a special playmaker who adds a whole other dimension to the California offense. If he produces another impressive season look to hear his name called early this April.
    Draft Projection: 1st Round

    4. Joseph Fauria TE UCLA 6'7" 255
    Fauria has excellent measurables. He is freakishly big at 6í8, 252lbs (he could pass for 6í10 on film), and he has excellent speed for his size. He only runs an average 40 (4.82), but he looks much faster on film. However, thanks to that height, 252lbs isnít that big, and he could definitely afford to as some bulk. Physically, Fauria is very similar to Jimmy Graham.
    Fauria has decent stats. In 2011, his first season as a starter, Fauria had 39 catches for 481 yards while maintaining an decent 12.3 yards per catch. He really came on toward the end of the season, getting at least 36 yards in each of the final 5 games. He also had 6 receiving touchdowns.
    There are some character issues surrounding Fauria. Under the advice of a Buffalo Bills scout, Iíve decided Iím going to avoid forming opinions on a playerís character, simply because I really canít comment on a players character without meeting him or his coaches. However, Fauria had to transfer from Notre Dame to UCLA for downright mysterious reasons. Fauria claims he was suspended for a semester for something minor (ďyouíd laugh if you knew [what it was]ď), and he left Notre Dame afterwards. Beyond the strange circumstances surrounding the Notre Dame exit, he also doesnít dominate as a blocker as much as you would think he would. Itís not that he doesnít care about football: he almost seems scared of blocking, and he doesnít block with a mean streak. I really donít want to question his toughness, but Iíd like to see more a mean streak from him as a run blocker.
    Fauria is a good receiver. Maybe his biggest issue is that he plays in a strange offense that might not translate to yardage in the NFL. UCLA uses the pistol, typically with 1 back and 2 tight ends on opposite sides of each other. Neither tight end lines up on the line of scrimmage, so Fauria often gets yards running crossing routes in that are actually in his own backfield. Seriously. Fauria runs crossing routes behind the line of scrimmage in UCLAís offense. It works pretty well for him, but he wonít be running routes anything like that in the NFL. Fauria also isnít a great route runner, thanks to poor fundamentals and tight hips. On the other hand, Fauria has excellent hands and is impossible to beat on a jump ball. He seems to catch everything he touches (though he will trap passes against his frame), his speed makes him tough to cover, and his combination of height, long arms, and leaping ability makes him a nightmare for defenses on jump balls, especially in the red zone. He also is a major threat after the catch, often doing ridiculous hurdles over smaller defenders and using his power to run over defensive backs.
    Fauria is a really poor blocker, namely because of terrible fundamentals. He has never had forward momentum going into a block in his life. He plays on his heels, and his typical stance is horrible unbalanced. A majority of his body weight is behind him, so it is simply easy to just push him down. He absolutely needs to try to learn how to get the slightest bit of forward momentum into his blocks, or defenders that are way smaller than he is will continue to run him over on a regular basis. When he is blocking, he looks like he is sitting down on an imaginary chair; almost all of his body weight is behind is feet and it is very easy for a defender to simply tip him over. He needs to bend at the waist and keep more of his body momentum going forward. Right now, Fauria is a terrible blocker.
    As mentioned before, I said Fauria seems very similar to Jimmy Graham. I truly think that, in college, they are identical players. Like Fauria, Graham was physically gifted, but incredibly raw (especially as a blocker) coming out of college. Graham was loaded with physical ability but didnít know how to play football. Same with Fauria. But hereís the difference: Graham had an excuse for being raw out of college. He only spent one season on Miamiís football team. He spent most of his time at Miami as a forward on the basketball team. He was on the team from 2005-2009. 2010 was the only season in which he played football. It was the first time Graham had played football in 5 years. It shouldnít come as a surprise that his fundamentals were terrible. It had been years since he played football. Graham has since improved his fundamentals and turned into one of the best tight ends in the NFL. But why are Fauriaís fundamentals so poor? I donít know. He has no excuse. Heís been playing football nonstop for years. Either he struggles with coaching, or he struggles to change the poor fundamentals that have been a part of his game for most of his career. Again, in college, Fauria and Graham were very similar. But it might be tougher for Fauria to improve on his mistakes.
    NFL Comparison: Jimmy Graham. But that might not be a good thing
    Grade: 77 (worthy of an early 3rd round pick)
    Projection: 86 (will be a mid second round pick)

    5. Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan 6'7"305
    Strengths: Good size. Shows real strength. Has a good base. Long arms and knows how to use his hands to keep defenders off him. Heís pretty quick and show good agility for such a big guy. Obviously very athletic. Very solid pass protector; he has a good kick slide and looks natural in pass protection. Has pretty good awareness. Tons of potential in him.
    Weaknesses: Needs to be more dominant in the running game. Often lets linemen under his pad level; he needs to learn to stay low consistently. He gets caught too high very often and that causes him to lose battles. Needs to learn to drive opponents rather than just stay locked on them; again, this is because he is too high. If he learns to get low, keep his feet moving, this would improve his overall game tremendously. I would like to see him add some more bulk. Overall consistency could be better. Missed final two games of last season due to an injury.
    Summary: Eric Fisher is a prospect that has been on the rise over the last couple of months. He stands out as one of the best, if not the best senior offensive tackle in the country. When I started watching film on him, I noticed two things after watching only one game. One, he looks like a natural talent when it comes to pass blocking. Heís got a great kick slide; heís quick, athletic and uses his long arms to keep defenders away. With the NFL becoming more and more about passing, this is a huge boast to his draft stock. The other thing I noticed is that he unfortunately lets defenders get underneath his pad level quite frequently. This is alarming, but really only shows a lack of technique. He stands too high when run and pass blocking and that causes him to get beat. This is poor technique and it wonít work in the NFL. Heís a big player, but when he gets engaged with a defender that is half his size he will lose every time if he doesnít learn to stay low. Fisher is definitely a player who needs to polish his game in order to improve his draft stock, but his potential and his natural skill make him an intriguing prospect. Right now, I have a 2nd round grade on him but Fisher definitely has the potential to rise up draft boards this April.
    Draft Projection: 2nd round

    6. Chance Warmack OG Alabama 6'3" 320

    Warmack is considerably lighter on his feet than one would expect given his stout frame and, like Jones, is adept at meeting and eliminating linebackers at the second level.

    In pass protection, Warmack does a nice job of supplying an initial punch and grasping hold of his opponent, showing good lateral agility to slide, as well as the anchor to handle powerful bull-rushers. Due to his lack of height, Warmack may lack the position versatility of his more recognizable linemates but he is further along in his development than Fluker and, frankly, makes more eye-popping blocks than Jones.

    While his size means that he'll be relegated strictly to interior blocking in the NFL, with another strong campaign Warmack could be one of the few pure interior linemen to earn a top 50 grade next April.

    7. Barrett Jones C Alabama 6'5" 305
    Strengths:

    • size, strength, and athleticism
    • versatility
    • experience
    • pass blocking
    • football IQ
    • zone blocking ability
    • good anchor

    Weaknesses:

    • needs to improve his run blocking
    • Does not get a constant push
    • needs to improve his explosion off the snap
    • Does not use his hands well
    • Short arms for a tackle

    Final Word: Jones is an extremely versatile linemen and is well accomplished. His versatility and talent will propel him to the top half of the first round next year. I believe he is a center or guard at the next level.

    8. Bjoern Werner DE FSU 6'4" 273
    Skill-Set Summary: The thing that about Werner's play that stands out the most is his combination of physicality and speed. Hr has a good burst off the snap that he uses to put tackles on their heels. Werner's get off will really appeal to NFL defensive line coaches. Once he gains leverage, he uses his strength and bulk to fend off blocks while surging by them. Werner has good closing speed to get to the quarterback.

    The Seminoles junior combines a good motor with a mean streak. He holds his ground and has a nice ability to get off of blocks just before the ball carrier gets to him. Werner also pursues well around the field to chase down backs. Florida State played him in contain regularly at the line of scrimmage, but he was at his best when the coaches let him get upfield. Werner caused havoc by firing past linemen to disrupt runs in the backfield and pressure the quarterback.

    Werner needs to continue to work on the basic fundamentals. His pad level and knee bend need to be more consistent. Werner's capacity to shed blocks could use more refining, but he has a good start for that critical skill.

    Werner also needs to continue to develop more pass-rushing moves. With his strength and quickness, an interior rip move could be devastating. He is still raw but has enough upside that all of these issues could disappear quickly.

    Florida State plays Werner at right and left end. He provides mismatch problems against both tackles. Left tackles can struggle with his power and physicality while right tackles are in trouble with his quickness.

    Werner would fit best as a 4-3 defensive end at the next level. However, he does have the skills to be a five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 defense, but may need to add some more bulk for that. Werner probably is not a candidate to kick out as a 3-4 outside linebacker. While he has some athleticism, he doesn't look like a natural to play in space.

    There is no doubt that Werner has a superb skill set. He has ideal size to be a 4-3 defensive end and those defensive line coaches are going to love his combination of speed and power.

    9. Star Lotulelei DT Utah 6'4" 320
    Star is a two-plus year starter at defensive tackle for the Utes. He spent two years at Snow College (UT), but only played one season of football. After signing with Utah, he primarily played as a backup in 2010, but did start three games. Since becoming a full-time starter in 2011, he has been the most noteworthy defensive lineman in the Pac-12. Size-wise, he is a ďhouseĒ with a well-proportioned body and a muscularly developed frame. He is very thick in the lower-body with massive calves, thighs and a bubble. His upper-body is equally impressive with broad shoulders, solid arms and big-boned wrists. In the Utesí 4-3 front, he usually aligns as the right defensive tackle and plays from a right-handed, three-point stance as either a 1- (NT) or 3-technique (DT). Against the run, he has the obvious size and strength to anchor and two-gap almost any opponent. When he plays with proper fundamentals and gets his hands inside, he is impossible to move at the point-of-attack because of his overall base and balance. He is capable of striking with his hands and pressing the lineman back into the backfield. However, he sometimes is late off the snap, does not get his hands inside and can get turned or position blocked. When runs go away, he has the natural agility to step over and skate down the line. He gives flashes of big-time movement ability, stays on his feet and can run to the perimeter. As a pass rusher, Star is most effective when he makes up his mind to bull and push his opponent into the pocket. He flashes enough hand and foot quickness to develop more of a repertoire and he also has the lateral athletic skills to stunt and twist on various pass rush games. He is not refined at this point, but has the potential to become a factor on all three downs because when he does puncture the pocket he can close on the QB with suddenness. Overall, instinctively, Star will get occupied with the 1-on-1 battle rather than finding the football. When he does make tackles, he usually gets a grip on the runner and ropes them down with authority.For the NFL, he is an ideal fit as a 3-4 Nose or 4-3 Tackle. He is scheme-friendly, so his value will be high to most every team in the league. With his combination of freakish size and surprising athletic ability, regardless of his motor inconsistencies, he will be an extremely high pick because there simply are not these kinds of body types available all over college football. Many will try to compare him to Haloti Ngata, the former Oregon and current Baltimore Ravensí defensive lineman, but he does not have the track record of dominance Ngata displayed with the Ducks. Still, Star is a rare breed, can wreck the middle of an offense and should go on to have a lengthy professional career.
    What the NFL scouts want to see in 2012: Simply put, Star gives glimpses of being the total package, so he needs to eliminate the long stretches of time that pass between big plays and become more consistent on a down-to-down basis.
