    I saw this on Reddit today. Supposedly the picture is a month old and the list rotates weekly based on who the strength coach feels isn't doing a good job. Obviously we don't know how often Montgomery is on there, but even if it's only once it's probably not a great thing to be sure.

    I'm pretty sure it's in reference to kids who miss workouts.

    42. Tony Jefferson FS Oklahoma 5'10" 212
    There is a lot to like about Jefferson, and he is a great fit for the current trends in the NFL. Jefferson has the ability to play free safety or strong safety with the schematic flexibility for a zone- or man-coverage-based defense. He excels in all phases of the game. Jefferson's standout trait is that he is extremely fast, possessing enough speed to blaze around the field like a cornerback.
    Jefferson is a good wrap up tackler in the open field. He is constantly looking to lay a hard hit, but does a good job of maintaining ahold of ball-carriers. There are times when Jefferson throws his body around with reckless abandon. It is clear that he possesses excellent pursuit speed.
    Not only does Jefferson use that to chase down backs and receivers, he is also a standout blitzer. Jefferson picks his lanes well and gets pressure on the quarterback even when he doesn't record a sack.
    In pass-coverage, Jefferson covers a lot of ground. He is a natural free safety who patrols the deep part of the field well. Jefferson doesn't get caught out of position or take false steps. That makes him a real asset to his cornerbacks.
    Jefferson picks up receivers running deep down the middle and has plenty of speed to get to the sideline. In the NFL, he should be very valuable to cover tight ends in man coverage. With Jefferson' speed and aggressiveness, it would be surprising if some teams look at him at corner. He could play safety and slot cornerback to cause more confusion for offenses.
    Jefferson is very decisive. He uses his instincts to get in position and fires into ball-carriers. That makes Jefferson very dangerous when he moves up into the box. Jefferson routinely blasts into the backfield to disrupt runs or blow up quick passes like bubble screens.
    The biggest negative with the junior seems like it has been corrected. Jefferson looked a little too lean and slender for the NFL the past two seasons, but reportedly he is up to 212 pounds after being listed at 199 last year. That added weight will help him when taking on the bigger receivers and backs at the next level.
    Reliable sources have told Walterfootball.com that Jefferson is a high-character individual and does not have off-the-field concerns. They say that he comes from a good family and is a positive locker-room presence. That will help Jefferson to ease any concerns of the minor incident regarding Stills in January 2011.
    With the manner in which the NFL has evolved, Jefferson is a perfect fit at safety because of his rangy pass-coverage abilities. His flexibility will carry a big appeal with talent evaluators. He is a difference-maker and a regular generator of splash plays. Assuming Jefferson stays healthy, he will enter the NFL with three or four years as a starter with a lot of experience against pass-heavy offenses. Jefferson has a lot going for him entering the NFL.

    43. Mike Glennon QB NCSU 6'6" 235
    Mike Glennon will be heavily scrutinized until Aprilís draft. Thereís a ton to like with this guy and he canít count me as a fan of his game. I think there will be a bunch of varied grades on this guy ranging from 1st to 3rd round. I fall into the first round category. He has NFL tools and is more ready to play than many give him credit for. He played in an NFL system taking snaps under center and in the gun. The pre-draft process will be an important one for Glennon and heís best served to throw at every opportunity. For me, Glennon possesses the tools to be a capable starter in the NFL and first round pick.
    http://nflsfuture.com/2012/12/15/mik...outing-report/

    **Note:
    Mike Glennon took over the reins from Russell Wilson and hasnít looked back since. Heís an intelligent quarterback that has mastered a pro-style offense at N.C. State.
    I have not a clue where this statement comes from as Wilson went to Wisconsin and Glennon went to NCSU.

    I found that out yesterday. I was not aware that he went to NCSU his freshman year, but they mentioned it on a TV broadcast.

    44. Giovani Bernard RB North Carolina 5'10" 205
    Coming off a torn ACL injury in 2010, University of North Carolina running back Giovani Bernard has put together two great seasons back-to-back to take the presumptive lead as the best prospect at this position heading into the evaluation period of the 2013 NFL Draft. Bernard has been an All-ACC performance since taking a redshirt after that aforementioned ACL injury. He was electric in 2012 with 1,228 rushing yards on just 184 carries, good for a 6.7 ypc average and 12 TDs. He also added 47 receptions for 490 yards and five TDs. He finished second in the nation in punt return average (16.4 ypr) and added another two PR TDs. Point here is of course that not only is Bernard multi-faceted, he produces with the ball in his hands in every way possible on offense.
    The key to his game are his elusiveness, quick acceleration, one-cut ability, just enough power in his lower half to battle through and break tackles. Running backs may be a dime a dozen in today's NFL, but Bernard breaks that home run threat each and every time he touches the ball. His ability to run, catch, and return only heightens his value.
    A powerful runner with great burst and vision, Bernard projects as a late first round choice in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    Actually, Wilson spent his first 3 years at NC State, and started all 3 years. He transferred after his junior year when it became apparent coaches were going to go with Glennon at QB for the 2011 season.
