    141. J.J. Wilcox FS Georgia Southern 6'0" 213
    J.J. Wilcox has played strong safety for one season for Georgia Southern. But that didn't keep him from receiving an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Wilcox was one of 13 players who game officials confirmed on Wednesday has accepted invitations to the Mobile all-star game. "It's a great showcase to be able to show off Georgia Southern to the nation," Wilcox said. "It's a blessing. I was in the right spot at the right time. The coaches put me in a great position, and it's a blessing and a privilege just to be able to play."
    Wilcox (6-foot-0, 215 pounds) spent his first three seasons with the Eagles on offense, mainly as a slot receiver. During that time, he rushed 137 times for 964 yards - a nifty 7 yards per carry average - and 13 touchdowns. He caught 45 passes for 898 yards and four scores. But this season, he was switched to the Georgia Southern secondary, where he's made 84 tackles and intercepted two passes. He's also returned kickoffs for an average of 25.5 yards on 30 attempts.

    142. Jeff Tuel QB Washington St. 6'3" 218
    Analysis
    STRENGTHS:
    When healthy, Tuel has demonstrated the combination of intelligence, mobility, and accuracy that every scout is looking for in a developmental quarterback. He possesses good size and enough athleticism to buy time in the pocket and scramble for yardage when the defense is caught napping. Tuel's best asset might be his touch, as he's consistently shown the ability to drop passes over the top of his receivers, leading them beautifully for long gainers.
    WEAKNESSES: Tuel appears to have just average arm strength, overall. He wasn't often asked to make "stick" throws in Paul Wulff's spread scheme and likewise didn't do much of it in Mike Leach's offense. Perhaps the biggest concern scouts will have with Tuel, frankly, is his struggles with durability. He missed time with injury in three of his four seasons at WSU, though it's remarkable that he didn't miss more time than he did considering the lack of support he had in Pullman.

    143. Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina 5'11" 221

    Analysis
    Strengths

    Taller north-south runner who plays with good lean to plow for yards between the tackles. Possesses vision and quick feet for his size to slide into a rushing lane and the speed to get upfield once finding the hole. Quite effective on zone runs when used in that capacity. Has the wiggle to freeze and elude tacklers to space. Spins off piles inside and keeps his legs churning to pick up the extra yard. Gets into his routes fluidly out of the backfield and flashes the hand to adjust to poor throws. Good build for pass protection, and is willing to hustle and make contact to keep his quarterback clean.
    Weaknesses
    With back to back seasons ending in traumatic knee injuries, durability is a major red flag. There are also the questions of how his medicals will check out, and how much he will be able to contribute his rookie season. Even before his injuries, struggled to get into a second or third gear in order to break off longer gains.
    NFL Comparison
    Arian Foster
    Bottom Line
    Lattimore offers an extremely intriguing blend of power, balance, vision and production. However, it's hard not to question his future durability and how much of the same player he will be going forward after major injuries to both knees in consecutive seasons. While his talent suggests a late first-round pick, it's much more likely that he is a Day 3 pick.

    144. Tavon Austin West Virginia 5'8" 174
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Slot receiver possessing elite acceleration with the ball in his hands, takes advantage of available lanes to explode for big gains. Shows excellent vision both as a runner out of the backfield, as a returner, and as a receiver with the ball in his hands. Almost unstoppable at continue on for additional yardage. Not a frail receiver; plays tough, has some upper-body thickness, and bounces up quickly from hits. Varies the speed of his route, lulls defenders to sleep and takes off to create space on out routes or over the middle. Tough to grab after the catch in zone coverage. Flashes the hands to adjust to wide or high passes, as well as tracking balls over his shoulder. Also goes down to grab low throws. Displays excellent balance to tightrope the sideline. Often used on fly sweeps, using his elite quickness and acceleration to cut inside or get the corner for big plays. Finds space as a kickoff returner to use his speed, will head straight upfield and can spin off tackles in the open field to maximize the return. Can make the first man miss on punt returns and has the vision to slalom between players to the sideline or up the middle. Very difficult to track down from behind. Wins at every level of the field despite his size, and has been somewhat underutilized deep. Improved as a blocker, and will body up on bigger players.
    Weaknesses
    Limited to the slot on most plays; lacks the size and strength most scouts prefer outside, or even as a kick returner. Hands are good, but not exceptional; will let some hot passes through his small hands and into his chest. Gets a lot of his yardage on shallow crosses, quick throws outside, and the fly sweep/"touch pass." Might not have the chance to get the sideline as often at the next level, forcing him to lower the shoulder and get what's available to him inside. Must prove he can hang onto the ball after taking big hits from NFL defenders. Will hesitate on punt and kick returns at times instead of immediately accelerating or trusting his blocking, and can get tripped up easily on contact. Incredible balance and stop/start ability, but he might not have elite straight line speed.
    NFL Comparison
    Randall Cobb
    Bottom Line
    Don't blink when Austin has the ball in his hands, as his elite acceleration helped him finish second in the country in all-purpose yards as a senior and lead the FBS as a junior. Don't be surprised if he turns out to be a first round pick or the first wide receiver off the board, as he is a huge playmaker on offense and special teams in the NFL despite the slight build that scared scouts away from other WVU offensive stars in the past.

    145. Philip Lutzenkirchen TE Auburn 6'3" 258
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Possesses NFL size and bulk. Difficult red zone and short-yardage assignment for defenders, uses his build to shield defenders or simply pushes them away when trying to reach a spot. Strong hands to make one-handed spots and win 50/50 balls when covered. Flashes foot quickness in his routes and athleticism to spin off tackle attempts and leap into the end zone to beat a defender to the pylon. Adjusts to throws behind him when heading out to the flat. Adept move blocker from his H-back spot, makes contact as a lead blocker and fits on linebackers in the run game. Solid in pass protection, mirrors blitzers effectively. Can shown effectiveness as an in-line blocker, as well.
    Weaknesses
    Though a fair athlete for his size, is still not an elite vertical threat. Must improve his ability to sustain as a blocker in space, when will bend at the waist and lunge instead of moving his feet. Will need to prove himself a reliable receiver once in an offense where he is regularly targeted. Injuries have been an issue, played injured junior year, missed most of his senior season.
    NFL Comparison
    David Johnson
    Bottom Line
    Auburnís career leader in touchdowns for tight ends, Lutzenkirchen has dealt with subpar passing attacks and injuries throughout his career. While he's never put up outstanding numbers, the talent is obvious. Lutzenkirchen has strong hands, runs routes well, and can block in space. Health is going to be a major question, but he should still garner a later round selection.

    146. Menelik Watson OT Florida St. 6'5" 310
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Physical specimen. Great size, and tremendously athletic. Explosive first step. Good foot quickness. Showcases mobility and range as a blocker. Able to get to the second level and make cut off blocks. Flexible, bends well. Powerful punch.
    Weaknesses
    Still raw, limited football experience. Older than ideal. Hand placement is poor. Often hits outside of the frame, and will have a tendency to get overly grabby. Will result in more penalties in the NFL. Needs to play with a wider base. Inconsistent with his footwork.
    NFL Comparison
    Jared Gaither
    Bottom Line
    Watson has rare athletic ability on a tremendous frame. He has an explosive first step, light feet, and a powerful punch. There are a lot of things in his game that need to be cleaned up from a technique standpoint, and he will be 25 years old in his rookie season. He can project to either tackle spot, or possibly even inside, at guard.

    147. John Sullen OG Auburn 6'5" 313
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Tall, long, powerful guard prospect with a thick overall build. Plays with a wide base. Often comes low and hard out of his stance to gain leverage despite his height. Better feet than his build would indicate, effective as a zone-blocker and can execute a reach-block surprisingly well to get the angle. Mirrors while engaged in pass pro, brings a punch, and anchors strong against bulls. Controls his man with his upper body on zone or power run plays. Has intensity to drive defenders to the ground when gaining the advantage.
    Weaknesses
    Height is a disadvantage in the leverage game if heís unable to maintain bend. Sticks to linebackers on combos, but simply lacks agility to adjust to quick defenders in space. Mirroring one-on-one against quicker NFL tackles might be an issue, must prove lateral agility and recovery speed if missing his punch.
    NFL Comparison
    John Jerry
    Bottom Line
    This big-bodied SEC lineman took time to get on the field, starting just one game in his first two seasons, and might not be considered an elite prospect by most teams. But like many others before him, Sullenís size and toughness will get him on scoutsí radars, and if he shows better athleticism than anticipated through the draft process, some team will take a chance on him in the mid-to-late rounds.

    148. P.J. Lonergan C Louisiana St. 6'3" 304
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Strong, intelligent pivot man with good length and the tenacity you want at the position. Sustains through the whistle with multiple punches and churning feet, does not back down from any challenge. Flashes the feet to re-direct tackles crossing his face. Handles reach blocks adeptly after the snap. Gives good help to either guard, good extension into his punches to knock tackles off their route. Keeps feet moving in short-yardage situations to get movement. Willing to play hurt when possible.
    Weaknesses
    Plays with a high pad level. Weight appears to be more in the midsection. Overextends occasionally in pass pro and trying to reach run targets. Anchors well in pass pro but gives up leverage to shorter, powerful tackles, might get pushed back and pulled down when leaning into NFL veterans. Not powerful as a drive blocker, defenders can slip off his advance to penetrate. Not coordinated on the move. Frequently finds himself on the ground.
    NFL Comparison
    Jeff Faine
    Bottom Line
    The leader of the Tigersí front line has been a fixture in the middle since winning the job before the teamís Capital Bowl win over Penn State his redshirt freshman season. His father, Patrick Sr., was also an offensive lineman at LSU.

    149. Corey Lemonier DE Auburn 6'3" 255
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Long-limbed end with a nice motor and a strong overall build with room to grow. Plays on both sides of the formation. Stands up at times. Showcases a good first step. Also flashes agility to drop into a zone and attack ballcarriers coming into his area. Can threaten outside shoulders of average linemen, and works an impressive rip move on the outside. Has strength and long arms to separate the ball from any ballcarrier. Works hard throughout each play, chasing plays to the sideline when needed and crashing inside for a secondary rush if stopped in his initial upfield move. Works well on twists inside, closes hard and gets into passing lanes if unable to reach the quarterback. Strong arm extension to knock back and shed linemen or tight ends in the run game. Good vision through traffic and hustle to reach the ball. Frame makes him susceptible to cut blocks, but he recovers quite well, gets back into the play to make a stop with pure effort.
    Weaknesses
    Does not have a powerful build. Lacks great snap awareness. Looks to be stiff in the hips, and is not always flexible enough to bend the edge. Weak hands, doesn't deliever a blow on contact with the offensive lineman. Better tackles get a push against him on drive-blocks due to that leggy build. Struggles to separate when an offensive lineman engages into his chest.
    NFL Comparison
    Andre Branch
    Bottom Line
    Lemonier is a long and projectable athlete, who already has a nice outside rip move. Was tremendously productive as a junior, but saw his play decline as a senior. While his body type is a better fit for 3-4 outside linebacker than 4-3 defensive end, his hips appear to be too stiff to make the transition. Lemonier also lacks powerful hands, and sometime struggles to turn the corner. The fact that Lemonier does not quit on plays, and has a good motor, combined with his athletic potential will likely cast him as a second or third rounder, despite some serious questions about the translating of his play to the next level.
