    35. James Ferentz C Iowa 6'2" 284
    Ferentz is a kid I like quite a bit. Hes probably a fourth rounder as a center at this point, but that has more to do with his size and limited upside than it does with what hes shown me on film. At 62, 284 pounds he certainly doesnt jump off the tape at you as a physical freak, but he has worked hard to add weight since being a 250 pound offensive lineman coming out of high school. Hes not going to be able to pack 30 more pounds onto that frame, but getting up in the 300 pound range would be very beneficial for him, particularly against stronger, physical defensive lineman. Right now he just doesnt have the lower body strength to handle strong players bull-rushing him, and even got run over by Tom Wort when he blitzed up the middle on a run play. Wort is a 60, 230 pound linebacker, he should not be able to bull rush a 284 pound center on a run play and knock him over backwards. However, Ferentz plays with good pad level in part thanks to his natural leverage, and does a good job with his hand placement and with his feet. Hes scrappy and blocks to the whistle which I like. Hes more of a wall-off blocker than a drive blocker thanks to his size, but he can walk defenders down the line of scrimmage or push them off the ball occasionally if they let him get into their pads. Hes not going to wow you with his size or workout numbers, but Ferentz is a coachs son who is the heart and soul of the offensive line, a team leader and the kind of kid you want on your team. He may not wow talent evaluators the second they see him, but hes the type of player that impresses you in interviews and ends up playing for the same team for 12 years because of his football IQ and leadership capability.

    36. Damontre Moore DE TAMU 6'4" 250
    Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore has been the nation's best pass-rusher this season. His 12.5 sacks rank him among the leaders in college football. Moore transitioned to defensive end this season for the Aggies. He has a very good, but not elite jump off the line of scrimmage. He can take on blockers with speed or power. Brings A+ effort on every play. Knack for the big play.
    Against the run, there are some small technique issues. Moore needs to stay low and drive more with his lower body. Sometimes he loses his assignment by just trying to win his one-on-one matchup. Loses contain too often. He uses his hands well to disengage and close ground on the ball carrier. Very long arms and can collapse the pocket.
    Moore has some versatility at the next level. He played OLB before moving to DE this year. He could play either end spot in a 4-3 and has enough speed to stand up on the outside. While he lacks a mean streak, he is very tough and can play through injury. Some character concerns with a marijuana possession last year.
    The 6'4", 250 lb. junior projects as an early first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    37. Johnathan Hankins DT Ohio St. 6'3" 332(pg.6)
    Ohio State's great 2012 season could be attributed to many factors; one big reason for their success is DT Johnathan Hankins. The 6'3", 332 lb anchor of their defensive line is a true difference maker. Hankins is best-suited as a RDT or NT that can occupy double teams and control the middle of the trenches. Although he plays with inconsistent technique, he is powerful enough to make up for it. He holds his ground well and does not get pushed around by blockers. One adjustment he will need to make is keeping his pad level low and driving with his legs rather than attempting to just manhandle players with his upper body strength.
    The true junior also must learn to play with his hands to keep blockers at bay. He is not particularly fast, but has better footwork than most interior defensive linemen. Unlike other players his size, he has a reliable motor and the stamina to play later into games. This allows him to really wear down opponents.
    Hankins shines when he can take on guys one-on-one, locate the football, and drive his man into the backfield to potentially make a play on the ball carrier. He should be ready to play immediately if he decides to leave one year early and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

    38. Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia 6'3" 241(pg.6)
    The University of Georgia has a special player in Jarvis Jones, one of the most highly-touted prospects of the 2013 NFL Draft. Currently considered a lock for the Top 5, Jones is a natural pass-rusher that projects as a 3-4 OLB at the next level. Jones' best attributes are a good first step, agility in tight spaces, and tremendous body control. While he may not have that desired Von Miller explosion off the line, not many do. The true junior has a wide array of swim and rip moves in his arsenal. He should be able to stay on the field on all three downs due to solid coverage skills and enough speed to play sideline to sideline. Tackling is not an issue. He wraps well, but sometimes leaves his feet in an attempt to make a big hit. When tracking the ball carrier, he takes good lines and has a nice short area burst to close the gap.
    Bigger offensive linemen are going to give Jones trouble though. His lack of bulk through his midsection and trunk do not give him much power to bull rush. He will have to rely heavily on speed to beat blockers to the edge. As a consequence, Jones will sometimes find himself out of position on counters, draws, or runs designed to exploit his pass rush lines. He will have to continue to bulk up and learn how to effectively use his hands and extend his arms to drive blockers and keep an arm free in his pass rush.
    Even though the 6'3", 241 lb. star has some shortcomings, his athletic ability and well-rounded game make him a clear-cut blue chip NFL prospect.

    39. Alec Ogletree ILB Georgia 6'3" 232
    University of Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree has flown up draft boards after a sensational junior season which saw him lead a Bulldogs defense to a 11-2 record heading into the 2013 Capital One Bowl. Ogletree possesses a long frame and great speed for an inside linebacker. He should have no troubles playing on all three downs as he excels both in coverage and of course, against the run. Can cover the whole field, sideline to sideline. A very special athlete who should contribute as a rookie.
    This true junior may even have a future as an edge pass-rusher and should be able to line-up almost anywhere. Shows a great bend taking on blockers on a speed rush and has enough strength to shed blockers. Really sets his body well when making tackles and explodes through his lower half on contact. Sometimes can be too erratic or over-aggressive on the field. His emotions can run hot and leave him off assignment. Certainly not a hot head though, but does have off-the-field character concerns.
    Ogletree should really standout amongst his peers during the evaluation period and will test very well. Look for him to go somewhere in the middle of the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

    40. Dee Milliner CB Alabama 6'1" 198
    Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback Dee Milliner appears to be the best at his position in this year's upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. The tall, rangy junior has really come into his own this season both in coverage and run support. Milliner plays with a chip on his shoulder, does not shy away from contact, and plays with a focused intensity to ensure his man does not come down with the ball. He is not a ball-hawk who goes for a lot of interceptions, but he does have long arms and a knack for breaking up the passes. His play recognition and ability to anticipate the route is very good and seems to come naturally with him. There is very little wasted motion in his feet as he can close quickly.
    When in press coverage, he holds his own and is further along than most college corners. He has room on his frame to grow and has adequate speed. Milliner is aggressive and willing against the run. He seals the edge and looks to make contact.
    Milliner currently projects just outside the Top 10 in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    41. Robert Lester SS Alabama 6'2" 210
    Lester was outstanding for the BCS National Championship-bound Crimson Tide during the regular season. The safety made 36 tackles with two interceptions (returned for 30 yards), blocked one kick, and had a forced fumble. Lester redshirted in 2008, played sparingly in 2009, and he has been a full-time starter ever since. As a sophomore he had 52 tackles to go along with an incredible eight interceptions. The Foley, AL native has good size at 6'2 and 210 pounds. He generally runs in the 4.5s of the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.46 from that distance. Lester is an above-average cover safety with a great knack for the ball and an ability to cause turnovers. He can also make plays with the football in hands after an interception or fumble. He needs to improve his tackling fundamentals and he often overplays the pass, so he can sometimes get beat deep down the field. A smart player and a good athlete, Lester could find himself off the board in round two.

    I saw that. Like I said in another post, sounds like a disgruntled football groupie.
