    150. Bennie Logan DT Louisiana St. 6'2" 309
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Athletic tackle with a wide frame and solid thickness and strength throughout. Nice lateral quickness to step into a gap after the snap, can penetrate through to get a hand on the ballcarrier or hold his ground with a shoulder against single blocks to stuff the hole. Plays with leverage when man-up and against double-teams, doesnít get moved off the line often. Flashes the violent hands and pop to shed and eat up backs coming into his area. Works hard as a pass rusher, can use his hands and strength to bull through the shoulder of his man to reach the quarterback if the ball stays in the pocket too long. Strong tackler who swallows ballcarriers when in position and also slows them with an arm even if engaged.
    Weaknesses
    Not elite in his initial quickness, will be stoned more consistently by NFL linemen unless it improves and might be taken out in obvious passing situations. Might be best as an athletic nose, rather than a three-technique. Inconsistent getting off blocks inside to two-gap, lunges towards ballcarriers after theyíre already by him. Gets overaggressive on his punch on occasion and doesnít have elite upper-body strength, so better linemen and double teams can get his shoulders turned out of the hole. Stamina is an issue, losing his chase ability and short-area quickness when facing strong competition, and forces him to be heavily rotated. Has difficulty seeing and handling cut blocks. Doesn't offer much as a pass rushing threat.
    NFL Comparison
    Tyson Alualu
    Bottom Line
    The two-time All-State pick from Louisiana wasnít an elite defensive end prospect coming out, but he has maintained his athleticism while gaining 30-plus pounds to become a strong nose tackle prospect. His tackles stats arenít overwhelming as part of a strong LSU tackle rotation, but his leverage at the point of attack and short-area quickness give him the tools to succeed in the NFL. His frame and quickness suggests that he has untapped potential, but he needs to improve as a pass rusher.

    151. Zaviar Gooden OLB Missouri 6'1" 234
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Speedy Will linebacker who attacks quickly when he gets a clear picture, closing in a hurry to attack plays in the backfield. Follows play action between the tackles then goes to the flat to take away the running back. Fluid hips, and his good change-of-direction ability is also useful over the middle against backs, tight ends, and slot receivers. Clicks-and-closes to make the tackle quickly once the ball is thrown. Takes on blocks from tight ends and fullbacks, stays moving to the ball while engaged and sheds to make the play. Gets under their shoulder to get leverage and contain. Solid wrap-up tackler in the open field, with good length for his size and an aggressive attitude to bring the ball carrier to the ground. Also strong enough to lower his pads and stop the forward momentum of piles. Utilizes his speed to hustle downfield regularly. Heíll contribute heavily on special teams coverage units.
    Weaknesses
    Possesses only average overall size. Backpedal is really stilted and he bends at the waist to make tackles instead of bending his knees. Primarily reads back flow and can be hesitant or get caught false-stepping when he doesnít get a clear picture. His aggressiveness can take him out of plays on occasion, as heíll head into the backfield as running backs run past through the hole. Hasnít been used as a pass rusher often, and doesnít win hand battles at the line with linemen and running backs. Not a schematically diverse player, will be limited to just the weakside linebacker spot for 4-3 teams.
    NFL Comparison
    Justin Durant
    Bottom Line
    Gooden has the speed to cover a lot of ground at the next level, as well as surprising strength and form tackling to bring down big ball carriers in the open field and handle himself in traffic. Injuries hampered his senior season, but that combination of attributes helped him lead the Tigers in tackles as a junior (85, 7.5 for loss, three sacks) and should allow him to earn a top-100 grade as a potential starter on the weak side of the formation. Even if he doesnít immediately earn a spot as a starter, he should be a valuable contributor on special teams while being groomed as a linebacker.

    152. Kenny Cain ILB Texas Christian 6'1" 225
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Downhill player against the run or pass blitzer from between the tackles or on strong side. Comes in low and hard as a tackler, using his length to wrap and flashing the ability to stop backs cold in their tracks. Even if he doesnít make the tackle, his willingness to take out lead blockers helps stop the action. He brings some violence into offensive linemen getting into his path and can pop off their advances to grab ballcarriers trying to slingshot off the block. Out-quicks guards, as well, to cut inside to find the ball. Presents good movement skills in coverage, dropping deep, playing tight ends physically off the line, and making hits to separate the ball.
    Weaknesses
    Undersized frame makes it more difficult to fight off NFL linemen, though his frame still seems to be growing. Closes in a hurry as an open-lane blitzer but lacks the consistent hand usage to beat blocks on his way to the quarterback. TCUís attacking style benefits his athleticism, but heíll need to show scouts instincts and discipline to not get fooled by play action and misdirection.
    NFL Comparison
    Demorrio Williams
    Bottom Line
    TCU seems to have a mid-round prospect at linebacker in every draft class, and this former safety grown into a 2011 second-team All-Mountain West pick (72 tackles, three for loss) seems next in that line. Now in the Big 12, heíll need to utilize all of his speed and tenacity in shaking down ballcarriers to be an all-conference selection Ė and continue the teamís linebacker pipeline to the NFL.

    153. Brandon McGee CB Miami 5'11" 193
    Analysis
    Strengths:
    Adequate size, build and strength for the position. Smooth hips to easily turn his frame and adjust on a dime. Patience, controlled footwork, playing with confidence. Nice job locating, highpointing and getting his hands on the ball in coverage. Nice job in pursuit to chase and close with accurate angles. Feisty and tough with very good effort to rip the ball out. Good playing experience and production.
    Weaknesses: Good, but not great, speed and can get beat vertically. Too much contact downfield and needs to do a better job with his hands and body positioning, often making it too easy for the officials to call pass interference. Room to improve his transitional technique and discipline. Inconsistent open-field tackler and doesn't have great strength to always finish once he initiates contact. A few questions regarding his competitive nature and coachability.

    154. Rashard Hall SS Clemson 6'1" 210
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Smart, determined player with NFL safety-caliber size and length. Secure tackler in the open field once latched on, using his strong upper body. Aggressive filling a running lane, delivers the blow. Reads misdirection and stays disciplined to prevent the big play. Stacks up piles inside, can stop forward momentum with pure effort. Diagnoses and closes fast on underneath routes in zones. Directs teammates to their assignments before the play, reads the offense well. Makes quarterbacks pay for overthrows with interceptions, even if he uses his body or double-catches hot passes.
    Weaknesses
    Needs to prove his straight-line speed, used in single-high looks at times but might have limited range at the next level. Does not always get deep-as-deepest in two-deep looks, either, allowing big plays behind him due to average recovery ability. Angles to the ball can be aggressive, leading to missed tackles, especially when leaving his feet for the stop. Slow, long backpedal, and move forward isnít always clean, will lose his balance when needing to quickly close. Average hip fluidity for a safety, can be stiff in transition.
    NFL Comparison
    Ryan Mundy
    Bottom Line
    Hall has been a fixture in the Tigersí secondary since his freshman year, when he intercepted six passes to earn honorable mention All-ACC honors. Though he couldnít maintain that sort of turnover creation while starting as a sophomore and junior, his overall strength against the run (86 tackles in 2011) and pass (10 career INT) are worthy of a mid-round selection as a potential NFL starter.

    155. Micah Hyde FS Iowa 6'1" 197
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Effective zone defender with the closing speed and length to knock away passes or make the interception. Height, vertical, and strong hands allow him to snatch jump balls away and knock away throws between levels of the defense. Uses his length to keep receivers off his body in the run game and prevent ballcarriers from stiff arming him in space, also uses his hands and upper-body strength to rip off blocks. Aggressive run defender. Comes downhill in a hurry to chop down running backs. Wraps up receivers after the catch. Special teams contributor.
    Weaknesses
    Teams might be split on his best NFL position. Average recovery speed at cornerback, must prove himself in man coverage as he will fail to stay with receivers downfield. Loses track of receivers in space, gets caught looking into the backfield or stops running while looking for the ball down the sideline. Looks tight in the hips, will struggle to consistently turn and run. Ducks his head at times trying to make open-field tackles and is not a physically imposing free safety.
    NFL Comparison
    Sherrod Martin
    Bottom Line
    Hyde is a bit of a 'tweener, but most teams will likely see him as a zone corner. Hyde has great size and instincts. He's a very good run defender, and plays physical. There will be questions about his hips and long speed that he will need to answer.

    156. Kyle Padron QB Eastern Washington 6'4" 220
    One of those prospects is Eastern Washington Eagles quarterback Kyle Padron, who is looking to make the jump from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision to the NFL. Padron graduated from Texas football powerhouse Carroll Senior High School (aka Southlake Carroll) in 2009. He then headed to SMU, where he started 21 games over three seasons, racking up a 12-9 record, and led SMU to their first bowl game, and win, since the NCAA "Death Penalty." Padron was named the MVP of the 2009 Hawaii Bowl, as well as named to the "Hawaii Bowl's Tenth Anniversary Team" in 2011.

    Following the 2011 season, Padron was granted his release from SMU and transferred to Eastern Washington. In an interesting parallel, Padron would be following former SMU quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell to the red turf of Eastern Washington. Padron also replaced Mitchell at SMU.

    In a time share offense with redshirt freshman Vernon Adams, Padron started five games, and appeared in six others. He threw for 2,491 yards with 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions last year, leading the Eagles to a semifinal appearance in the FCS Playoffs.

    In the quarterfinal game against Illinois State December 8, 2012, Padron threw for 358 yards and six touchdowns.

    157. Miguel Maysonet RB Stony Brook 5'9" 209
    Analysis
    Strengths

    Sees snaps from single back, I formation, and pistol. Decisive upfield cuts to continue forward momentum. Sees front side lanes even if run calls for different gap. Determined runner, little wasted movement, makes a choice and sticks to it. Refuses to go down on first contact, takes some big hits because of it. Patient on zone read and sticks with mesh point. Always churning his legs, that's his best quality, never stops. Rarely anything fancy. Protects the football confidently and absorbs contact. Has enough long speed to sustain.
    Weaknesses
    Runs a bit upright, arms flailing to keep balance on occasion. Rarely looks back side for cut back lanes. Eyes can be bigger than stomach in terms of hurdling tacklers in the open field. Does not possess break away speed. Lacks creative quickness to create when stopped behind the line of scrimmage.
    NFL Comparison
    Alfred Morris
    Bottom Line
    Maysonet's collegiate career was abnormal, but he was extremely consistent on the field. While on the path to not missing a game in the last three seasons, Maysonet set multiple records due to an aggressive and decisive running style. He isn't flashy and hasn't shown passing down ability because of limited repetitions, but he could produce as a ball carrier if given an opportunity.

    158. Aaron Mellette WR Elon 6'3" 217
    Analysis
    Strengths:
    Solidly-built frame with good height and length for the position. Smooth body adjustments and looks flexible in his cuts, using his reach and movements to collect off-target throws. Uses his size well and knows how to box out defenders and utilize his frame. Natural hands-catcher with good focus to snatch grabs away from his body. Good toughness over the middle and competes for the ball in tight spaces. Good production over his career with at least 86 catches each of the last three seasons and 44 career touchdown receptions.
    Weaknesses: Lacks elite speed and will struggle to consistently separate. Has more build-up speed and lacks natural burst to quickly change directions. Takes too long changing gears and isn't considered a dangerous threat after the catch. Room to improve his route running and needs refinement in his technique. Almost all of his production and experience has come against lower level of competition at the FCS level with mixed results against FBS-level talent.

    159. Jack Doyle TE Western Kentucky 6'5" 254
    TE Jack Doyle is one of the top tight end prospects in the country. A native of Indianapolis, Doyle led the team with 47 receptions and 530 yards. At 6-6, 255, Doyle is QB Kawaun Jakes' favorite target and he works extremely well in the West Coast system of play-action and multiple tight ends. - The Sports Xchange
    12/14/12 - 2012 ALL-SUN BELT CONFERENCE FIRST TEAM (COACHES & MEDIA): Jack Doyle (WKU, Sr., TE), has been selected First Team All-Sun Belt Conference (Coaches & Media selection) for the 2012 college football season. Doyle is on the all-conference team for the second straight season after earning a second-team selection in 2011. The Indianapolis, Ind., native was one of eight national semifinalist for the 2012 John Mackey Award in 2012. He led WKU in both receptions (47) and receiving yards (530) from the tight end position - the second straight year he has led the team in both categories.
    Doyle averaged 11.3 yards per catch and 44.2 yards per game. He recorded at least one catch in all 12 games, and had at least three receptions in 11 contests. He posted a season-best seven receptions against #1 Alabama, while racking up a season-high 82 receiving yards against Louisiana-Monroe. He also pulled in two of his four touchdown receptions on the year against ULM.
